I can't see a reason why your laptop wouldn't do 4K 60Hz over a USB-C to DP cable so... yeah, dodgy adapter maybe? Higher than 1080p requires either thick or short cables to work properly.
Looks like it's not available anymore

Those that do 'video out' likely use DP (99% chance) but there's also HDMI alternate mode.In your case I'd want to know the make and model of your laptop to know if you have DP alternate mode for sure. Chances are you do, if you look in (windows) device manager, the video adapter section, is the USB hub detected as a USB video adapter? Or does it not exist? If it doesn't exist, it's just passively adapting the DP alt mode signal.USB-C to DP cables are pretty cheap BTW, £7 on amazon

Email said mine would be delivered by Samuel between 9.56 and 10.06, so was spot on.
Both packages were the bubble wrap envelope type, one flat enough to go through a letter box the other folded over on itself. Didn’t have to sign for either, Samuel just asked for my name.

I have just had a text saying mine will be delivered between 14.06 and 15.06 today by DPD.

It makes me wonder whether they are doing some kind of test on DPD to check on deliveries because they can't be making any money on these items.

I opted for a generic usb-c thunderbolt hub for £15 plus a thunderbolt 3 extension cable.

Means I can leave the hub on a table with HDD attached then just one cable to the macbook pro which provides the power and all connectivity .

Nothing left dangling off the side now!
Better to get one that is not dedicated in case you upgrade in the future. As others have said more useful would be HDMI or VGA output as well as Power Delivery and USB 3.0. If you don't need SD cards look at this one.
£30 for a USB/Card adapter?

No.
Also 2Tb limit on these adapters. Not worth it.
Not worth the reduced price, never mind the original one for a couple of USB ports and an SD card reader. As Wixter says, there are cheaper alternatives that do the same job.

You obviously have no idea how hard drives work. The amount of time & effort involved in doing such a scan is pointless for home users (even enterprise users - can you imagine how much effort would be involved with scanning 12 petabytes of drives?) If your data is important you will spend that time on backups. Also a single hard drive should no be used to store critical data! There is a reason why the R in RAID stands for redundant...
This is HotUKdeals so I'll not detail any further, however I would encourage you to read up about MTBF & AFR, metrics which apply to all electronics - especially ones that use incredibly small electron paths - electon paths 1 electron widecannot guarantee an available electron to complete the circuit - and that has nothing to do with rough handling!

Not sure I have two 4 tb seagate hds connected but they’re are powered and not portable. It could be that the hub doesn’t supply enough power itself to your hd. USB sticks are absolutely fine as they require less power.

I think you're a little confused. I bought this USB hub to fix shortage of USB ports. It hasn't arrived yet

I am saying the USB ports on front of my case are messed up, I am guessing it's my case since it's cheap, probably a faulty port power connector

If by 'get over it' you mean ignore actual data then i'd rather not. You're suggesting 'the internet' is your source of definitive data but fail to cite a single source other than your pre-built PC having issues after 9 months. How about providing some decent data to back up your assertion, ideally not based on your single drive in a pre-built PC. Take Backblaze for example, Seagate have seen a considerable improvement, arguably depending on how you wish to interpret the data they're a better bet than WD at preset.

For the record I usually buy HGST/WD, I have no axe to grind, other than a dislike for people who base opinions on things that happened in what can only be described in technological timescales as ancient history. Every OEM has issues from time to time - Intel, OCZ, IBM/Hitachi/HGST, WD, AMD, apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Crucial, Kingston... You name it, they've all dropped the ball at some point.

HGST still produce drives under their name even though they were bought out by Westen Digital. HGST (Hitachi) still produce far more reliable drives than either WD or Seagate. Annual failure rates are 1% for HGST and around 5% for both WD and Seagate. The drives are made to last 5 years - which is why data centres replace drives as they are approaching 4 and 5 years old. After that time expect them to go at any time.

I would trust a refurbed WD over a brand new Seagate any day of the week.

These days I buy Toshiba - which are rebranded Hitachi drives.

FYI, although we are down to only a couple of COMPANIES making drives, they still use the fabrication methods of the previous owner, so even if X has bought Y, currently the drives made at the factories previously owned by X will be functionally identical to the original drives - until such time Y has the factory gutted and rebuilt with their inferior fabrication method.

Toshiba bought the Hitachi plant YEARS ago, but the drives still read as Hitachi.
Wow people hate Seagate...

Got loads of Seagate drives and no issues. Had just about every make of drive die and in my job (IT support). We see many types of failures from many manufacturers, ironically most not Seagate. The only drive I have had complete destroy itself was a Maxtor that went bang as the drive electronics self-destructed!

People will think what they think and that is fine but me personally I have no issue with reliability of Seagates. I was lucky enough to get this drive for £129 on Prime day. Quite a nice unit.

One thing to bear in mind though is that you will be able to find plenty of people online complaining about a failed drive because people don't generally go online to praise something that works perfectly.

I had a Western Digital and Seagate drive stored for 15 years from an old PC. I came to power them up in an external chassis to see what was on them. Only one powered up, the Western Digital. I even had to replace a Seagate drive in a Sky Plus box years ago because it failed.

Avoid Seagate like the plague especially for backups, they are the only make of drive I have ever seen fail completely on their own in many years of IT related dealings personally and professionally.

Wow, trolling on hukd how sad.


Yeah, I was going to ask what that's got to do with anything. I don't have to post deals to have an opinion on a product I have bought.
tones of these on ebay from china, bad quality, might be only 9p but...
Now £1.99.
Looks like one I bought on ebay and got a refund on cos it only worked at usb 1.1 speeds despite being sold as a usb 2.0 device. At least the amazon page isn't pretending it is usb 2.0, although you have to check the description closely to see that it is only usb 1.1.

Transfer speeds for usb memory sticks would be achingly slow with this, and some devices, like tv tuners, won't work at all.

I know it's 9p but I'm not sure why I'd want 1


If you are like me...you'll buy it because its 9p My house is full of HUKD bargains... that I have to hide from my other!
