VOAMOKO Mouse Pad with USB Hub review

REVIEW – Our family computer is a MacBook Pro that lives on the kitchen table but floats around the house wherever it’s needed.  It’s not a particularly powerful laptop, but we only use it for ordinary things, like banking online, writing documents, and checking Facebook.  In general, our setup works, but it does have a …

The Satechi Type-C iMac hub takes the party from the back and puts it in the front

NEWS – For several years, my primary computer was an iMac and I loved everything about it except for one thing. Apple hid all the ports on the back of the iMac making them awkward and annoying to access. It’s been a long time since I switched from an iMac to a MacBook, and even now, …

Satechi Type-C Mobile Pro Hub review

REVIEW – If you’ve been reading The Gadgeteer for a while, you’ll know that I like to bend gadgets to my will. That usually means that I  try to turn tablets and smartphones into my only computer.

Satechi Type-C Multi-port Adapter 4K with Ethernet V2 review

REVIEW – As newer laptops become thinner and more portable, they have fewer and fewer ports available. As a result, users have to purchase USB hubs to provide the missing necessary ports. My Lenovo Yoga 730 only has two USB Type-C ports (Thunderbolt 3), one USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a 3.5 mm audio input/output jack …

In my home studio, I currently have 4 USB hubs connected to my main computer, for a total of 18 data transfer and 3 charging ports, not including the 8 USB ports that are built-in to the computer. Despite that reasonable number of ports, I still find myself saying that I need another USB hub …

DockCase MacBook sleeve with built in USB C hub review

I love my 12″ MacBook that I bought as a refurb from Amazon a couple years ago. It’s the perfect size and the perfect weight for everyday use and especially for travel. I actually downsized from a 13″ MacBook Pro just to get a smaller and lighter machine. But downsizing also meant that I would have to …

QICENT 10 Port USB Hub review

The 10 port USB hub from QICENT is pretty self-explanatory.  After receiving this sample to review, the particular model that I received is no longer available for sale on Amazon or anywhere else that I could find for that matter.  Other offerings from QICENT are similar and can be found on Amazon but this particular model seems to have disappeared. 

New Satechi Type-C Pro Hub for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros offers connectivity in a slim package

I recently sold my 13″ MacBook Pro to a friend at work after having purchased a refurbed 12″ MacBook. You might think that’s a step in the wrong direction going from the powerful MBP to a slower MB. But I absolutely love the MB because it’s small, lightweight, and does everything I need in a …
