It looks like Anker have a sale on this hub once again. There’s a voucher worth £14 which can be selected on the website at the time of purchase to bring the price down to £34.99. Looks like a decent saving.

cold, no USB C Passthrough
Given the price of a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter I really struggle to see why USB hubs that have Ethernet are priced so much higher than those that don't. Is there a technical explanation for it?

The fact that you don't like the product doesn't make it a bad deal though... Surely this would be a great deal if you don't want/need passthrough?

Could you kindly fill me in on what a passthrough is used for?

if there is only one usb c port like the macbook 12, the pass through allows you to connect to mains power while still using the hub

I agree with ?? Nothing but confusion from me. What exactly makes this ‘premium’... it doesn’t even have usb pass through for charging etc

The stated limitations do not read as a premium product to me:

Please Note:

For a stable connection, connected devices should not exceed a combined current of 900mA. Not intended for use with high-power devices (external hard drives, iPads, etc.).

2.4 GHz wireless devices, MIDI devices and some USB 3.0 devices may not be supported.

Hmm, I'm waiting for a new laptop. I bought an Anker hub because they have a good reputation. Re-reading the description it also has these current limitations. Have to say I'm disappointed, why such a low limit, it almost completely removes the benefit of a USB C port.

Do you have another that you would recommend?
Do you need USB3.0 connectivity? As a USB2.0 hub can be picked up super cheap on ebay usually.

I bought a 4 port micro-USB hub with charger pass-through from china for £3.50 and it came with a micro-USB to USB-C adaptor.
I also bought a USB3.0 to 3-port hub+ gigabit ethernet on ebay for about £9

If you really need the HDMI output then maybe there aren't alot of options and hence the price 'premium' they are charging for this box.....
