The Satechi worked well enough to connect from the PC to other devices - and it packs a lot in a small space. But as others have mentioned, it does get very hot. Worryingly hot.
And maybe I was expecting too much from such a small package but when I tried to use it to charge my laptop, it would only charge very slowly - I got warnings from the laptop. So I was compelled to use the 2nd of those few ports for a separate charger.
Great for portability though, as long as your battery is well-charged.
The connection to the PC with a cable is fine and makes the use flexible.
Fantastic build quality
Super fast and lightweight to carry.
Cord is perfect length not too long or short.
Has all the ports I need plus more.
the company kept me up to date by emails well and I was very happy with their service
I am in contact with customer service all i have had so far is oh yes it will get a little warm...
However, I do have a concern by the heat it produces - it gets very hot indeed. As it is very hot to the touch I am a little concerned about a potential fire risk that I have it resting on a ceramic tile.
I'd be interested in a comment from Satechi, to see if they have received similar feedback from other users.
My primary use for my Mac is DJing and Music Production. My Allan & Heath 4D Mixer is my main tool that connects to my Mac for this purpose. The Satechi hub doesn't miss a beat, I've had it running at full capacity with my mixer attached to 1 USB 3.0 port, a USB 3.0 external HDD, my mate was able to use the 3rd USB 3.0 to plug in his Traktor Kontrol S4. Absolutely everything worked seamlessly all through one USB C port with the Satechi plugged in. Also, just to check the pass through function I was also charging my MBP through the USB C port on the hub.
I've also had it running my HD Projector via the HDMI port and when I'm at my desk and doing some serious file transfers to my NAS drives the ethernet connection has been flawless.
I've not had the chance to use the SD card readers as yet but judging by my above experiences I don't expect there to be any issues.
I will at some point give the hub a full workout and have everything plugged in at once and if possible will update this review, however from my experience so far it's absolutely the best multi-port-adaptor I've ever used, USB C is brilliant it really can do it all.
Hope this is helpful if you're thinking of purchasing one, the build quality is top class, the space grey colour matches my new MBP perfectly and its as light as a feather, great investment =)
