Got one similar but with 3 usb port, also from URGREEN, HDMI port faulty and external monitor flashes when connected. Totally lost my faith when it disconnects my USB when I am transferring some files and 20G of files on USB, gone. Not sure if it's USB's fault, the computer's fault or the port's fault, but Im never using it again
Any with ethernet?
Bought one of these when they were last on offer, HDMI port isn't compatible with all devices (my HP Pavilion doesn't recognise it - "display connection might be limited" error) so best to check compatibility if this is a reason you're buying it. Other than that excellent bit of kit very fast transfer rates
I spent a long time in 2018 trying to answer that question and the Filehub was the only solution I could find. It's got a lot of functions you don't need, but it does do the transfer that you need. You need a phone to run an app . you connect your phone to the wifi on the hub and the app lets you transfer from an SD card to a USB drive, both plugged into the hub. I could not find anything else that did that function.
any good USB to USB solutions? I'm not bothered about WiFi, just from my SD cards to a USB drive
Yes, but they are surpisingly hard to find. I have one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B076M3X2GR which is no longer sold, but I believe the new version does it too: https://www.ravpower.com/products/rp-wd009-filehub
Are there any similar devices to this that can just move everything from one USB to another?
I've been doing it for years and never had any of those problems XD (confused) The only issue I had in they past was written I connected a 2.5" external hdd, as I had to install an extension so it would read ntfs.
May be a challenge, AFAIK the Pi Zero is micro-usb 2.0, it may be challenged recognising the gigabit adapter and will almost certainly struggle to keep up with the bitrate, but I've been wrong in the past and will doubtless be wrong again in the future! The Pi 4 has a couple of USB3 connectors and certainly has the oomph to handle the traffic, I don't know if it recognises the hardware though - would be willing to take a punt on it if only I could work out how to get the 50% voucher which seems singularly elusive!
Thanks for sharing but it is showing as full price for me ….
Thanks OP - Cant find where u apply the 50% voucher?
Worth checking again. It's back down to £15.57 today.
A lot don't support extended mode
Price back to normal now, just missed it.
This should be called a 6-in-1. Last month I bought an 8 in 1 from ebay for £14.99 - 15% - (x best offer) so ten something. The 8 in 1 is a classic with many sellers on Ali Express advertising the same thing and common reports of the HDMI or Ethernet not working. I think it may be the consumer without the right USB-C port. But eBay was much cheaper and quicker for me. The seller was rradtech, but at the full £15 you could find elsewhere. I don't yet recognise the advantage of U-Green, so refuse to pay £22 for their equivalent.
Anyone seen a decent one of these for sale with 2 hdmi?
I have several of these and they work well. However the USB ports are quite close together and I find that many USB sticks are wider than the spacing on the hub which limits the number of ports that can be usable.
Yes It's USB 3.0 (they also do a USB 2.0 model too - which is currently more expensive than the 3.0 one :- ) I bought one last year @ £6.75 - just bought another one now - as the other one has operated perfectly and is quite handy
Can anyone confirm first-hand that it's really usb 3.0? Seen one of these which looks identical design-wise on amazon but it had usb 2.0 ports.
Bought this a couple days ago, works flawlessly with flight sim gear: throttle, stick, pedals, and trackir. Which are sometimes an issue for non-powered usb hubs but this is spot on so far.
I have been using one of these for over a year. Good kit. It's very useful for app development as its a single switch to connect and disconnect test devices.
Great price. As always with cheaper devices like this, it's 4K at 30hz which I wouldn't wish on anyone. So if your needing an additional HDMI for a 4K screen, you'll need to spend a little more :D
Works a treat for me, my work laptop had two USB-C ports and only one HDMI. This allowed me to work comfortably with two monitors (three including my laptop screen). Easily as good as the more expensive alternatives in my opinion.
If only it had ethernet as well..hey ho, still a very good price for what it has. Heated.
If your device only charges via USB-c then this device isn't that useful. Better to get a hub with an input for USB-c charging.
The PSU that came with it is rated 45W, so yes, it's right on the limit.
Thanks both, good idea. Let's see if I am allowed in...
The Dell docking station I have at work (model K17A) has a HDMI and DP ports and I can use both simultaneously to extend displays. So I can use my laptop screen and two external monitors in extension mode. But yeah, I think it all depends on the type of USB-C their laptop has, less so on the actual dock.
Just had a quick check to remind myself of this stuff. The ‘C’ reference relates to the shape of the connector and not necessarily what the port can handle! Hence the reason you will have the markings that you describe to let the user know what the port can be used for. Going back to the OP’s question, i’m not sure that this would have any bearing as in his case both displays are working, but the configuration is in question. Having said that, i haven’t looked at what docks are out there and what they do, as my company limited me to a choice of one! Mine certainly does it, although after one week of use it has exhibited a fault and is currently under return. :-/
USB-C with Thunderbolt support will support two external displays via HDMI. From memory up to two displays 4K@30hz is the standard.

6in1 looks good to add USB and Ethernet to a Chromecast with Google TV.
I have the WD19TB. I'm only running a single 34" ultrawide at the moment and can confirm that it utilizes the 1660 card. I would assume it would do the same for your setup but it would be a good idea to get on to Dell support and double check. It also charges at 130w through the thunderbolt (shock)

Has one of these but ended up sending it back after about a month as devices kept disconnecting. Shame as it's a good idea
Is there something similr for type C
Powered Hubs have a power supply to guarantee the adequate voltage across each port, unpowered is usually fine for low powered devices such as keyboards, mice but if you want to hook up a hard disk or two the source (PC / Laptop) may not be able to provide enough power on an unpowered hub.
Can someone please let me know what's the difference between a bog standard hub vs a powered mains hub? I'd want it being plugged into my main PC, mostly my razer mouse & keyboard will be connected to it plus several USB momory sticks. Being able to power things I.e charge my phone would be advantageous too. I'm using a very very cheap and old 4 port USB hub at the moment to connect my mouse and keyboard, and unfortunately the programmable RGB effects don't work as Razer synape can't detect anything.

no real idea what your piano does via usb - but if the piano doesn't support USB hub then this likely won't work. Can always try it and send it back if it doesn't work though. I bought this back in December '19 for about a quid less than this - still a good buy imo. Best thing about this hub (and the reason I bought it) is that it can be powered from a micro USB cable if the devices you're connecting need more power than the host can provide. Means I can plug 2.5" hard drives into my little travel router and I can power the whole lot from a 2-port phone charger without needing to take another power suply with me on my travels (the router can't power a mechanical HDD on its own). Every other USB hub I looked at needed a separate charger so increased the bulk of my setup a lot.
Need HDMI port

Thanks. Should support vary that much with USB-A too? I've tried it with two laptops (I bought the hub so I could easily switch between them): Lenovo IdeaPad C340-15IWL (has USB-C port and USB-A ports). HP 250 G6 (only has USB-A ports - I bought an adapter since there's no USB-C). This UGREEN hub works with both for USB devices only but the HDMI doesn't work. Is there any hub that will work or do none of the USB ports support video?
Interesting as that's the one I was thinking of getting. I previously had one by Qgeem (another terrible name) which was ok mostly but sometime would lose connection the reconnect almost instantly which made it a bit unusable to be honest. That got warm too but it never felt hot. Tbh I'm happy to pay extra for something that is decent as will use it daily.
Yes it does. Please understand USB-C is the port but what’s inside and what I can do will vary drastically. i.e. some USB-c ports can charge the device, others can’t. Some support video others don’t. If you send me the model number of your laptop I should be able to see what type of USB-C you have.
Out of stock, but does the HDMI work for you, and if so, what laptop do you have? The UGREEN one doesn't work with HDMI for me (seen someone else has reviewed with the same comment too) and they said my USB ports aren't compatible with video but I'm wondering if it's just their product.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong I've had 5 USB type c and type a devices from Anker and other unknown brands just die after a short period of use (embarrassed) I do like ugreen stuff, they have been in my good books for a while, replacing Startech stuff in my collection of useful tools and gadgets 😁
I've had this running at 4k at 60hz for a while now and it's been easy and reliable for me
I looked for a while and the ones that can handle it and still have ports cost quite a bit as most do not have the bandwidth. I went for this on the amazon warehouse over the summer for £36, hasn't missed a beat. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07C8LKKLT?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Yeah been looking for ages. Most claim 100w which is way overstated but my macbook air only requires 30w so all good! (y)
