Satechi today added to its USB-C hub lineup with the launch of the Aluminum Type-C Pro Hub with Ethernet.

Designed for 2016 and 2017 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro models, the new Pro Hub with Ethernet comes equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI port, a USB-C Power Delivery port that supports 87W of power, two type-A USB 3.0 ports, and a micro SD card slot.

Like other Satechi USB-C hubs, the Pro Hub with Ethernet comes in a brushed aluminum that's available in either silver or Space Gray to match Apple's notebooks.

The Pro Hub with Ethernet's integrated Gigabit Ethernet port is invaluable in a situation where Wi-Fi is either unavailable or unreliable. It supports 10/100/1000Mb/s.

In addition to an Ethernet connection, the Pro Hub supports a 4K monitor through the HDMI port and the USB-C port allows for power delivery. The microSD card slot can be used for importing images and files, while the two USB 3.0 ports allow for data transfer from USB-A accessories.

Satechi's new Aluminum Type-C Pro Hub with Ethernet can be purchased today from the Satechi website or from Amazon for $99.99.

It's sad that these are products. The simple fact there is a market for products like this demonstrates that Apple took away ports the users need.

I bought a USB Type C hub for my 2016 MBP not long ago from Amazon. It cost me almost $70, and I am still using it to this day, but I can't connect any external hard drives to it.

The problem with USB Type C isn't in the speed (it is really fast), it is with the poor quality of the hardware component. The very design of USB Type C connector and port isn't very sturdy. Even my pricey USB Type C hub wobbles in the port, causing any connected devices to disconnect, then reconnect, then disconnect, etc. This has also happened with much cheaper hubs I have bought, so price (read: quality) isn't an issue here. It only compounds the dongle hell issue that a lot of 2016 MBP owners experience.

So with Satechi's new hub (if I were to buy it), I can now expect Ethernet to disconnect, then reconnect, then disconnect, etc. I would hope that they and other hub manufacturers would design some sort of clip that would secure it more firmly to the MBP, so the wobble would hopefully go away. I really hope that USB Type C goes the way of the dodo very soon, or the connector and port are redesigned to make them more sturdy.

..and all these ugly and expensive hubs just because of Apple how decided to prefer design over functionality. If they don't return back a single USB3.1 to MBP 2018 it will be a fail again. Who TF needs 4xUSB-C even in 2018?? 5% of all the MBP users? Apple just totally screwed 2016&17 MBP (ports/keybord/magsafe removal/...) and extended that dongles' hell (my opinion is that they just did it on purpose to force people buy another overpriced dongles .. I doubt they didn't find a place e.g. for a single USB3.1.

So so so insane.

They removed the features that are necessary to the usage of the device, all in the name of "design".

Prediction: Next generation Macbook Pro has no display.

You view it via dongles and aftermarket adapters.

You read it here first!
