Belkin Launches New USB-C Multiport Hub Designed for Macs

Belkin today announced the launch of a new $70 Connect USB-C 6-in-1 Multiport Hub with Mount, which is compatible with the iMac, Apple's MacBooks, PCs, and other USB-C devices.

The Hub is designed to be mounted to the back of a monitor, computer stand, or monitor base, and tucked away from view. It features two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, one SD card slot, and a microSD card reader.

It mounts to the back of an ‌iMac‌ or other computer using two 3M Command strips, and there's a quick release button in case you need to use the hub on the go. It supports transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s.

Belkin today also introduced the $80 USB-C 5-in-1 Multiport Adapter. Though designed for Chromebooks, the adapter is compatible with Macs, offering two USB-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI port that supports one 4K display at 60Hz, and an 86W USB-C power delivery port.

Both the new Connect Multiport Adapter and Multiport Hub can be purchased from the Belkin website.

I'm sure everybody wants to make their iMac as ugly as this by attaching one of these. Not me, I'll take a big pass.

I went with the USB-C Slim Dock by Satechi in June for $120. ('')

I also added the 1TB SAMSUNG 980 SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology for Gaming, Heavy Graphics, Full Power Mode, MZ-V8V1T0B/AM ('')

Why is it so hard to find one of these with multiple USB-C ports? Is there a technical reason?

Modern technology is really odd. It seems obvious that all these hubs are the same boards repackaged because they always have the same spec. 1 usb c , 1 card reader etc.

So what is actually going on here? If you find a hub with more than 1 usb c it’s ridiculous money. And usb c doesn’t even mean thunderbolt 4. So how does all of this work? Is there only 1 company building the guts of these interfaces? Why is it so hard for someone to make multiple USB ports?

I’d love to know the story about this because it’s been going on for years now.

That's an ugly wart on a pretty face, IMHO.

It's not very "tucked away from view" when you see cables sticking out of the side of the monitor.

Maybe Apple should have put magnets on the back of the iMac so devices like this could clip on without needing adhesive strips.
Maybe they should put more ports on their computers so that neither the hub nor magnets are needed.

I say this as someone who has owned Macs since the 68040 days.
