Aukey Hub Ethernet

Friends of why-tech today we present the USB 3.0 Hub with Ethernet port of AUKEY, a device suitable for all those computers without Ethernet port and with a limited number of USB ports.

L’ AUKEY Hub is a device aimed primarily to compensate for the lack of USB ports of the “Thereligionfaqs” or all those notebook ultrabooks and compact that they’re depopulating lately, this is because using a single USB port of the PC can provide other 3 USB 3.0 ports and an additional Gigabit Ethernet port for connecting “wired” to the network.

The packaging, cardboard, is the classic one of AUKEY and contains the hub, the cd for the drivers, the Manual also in Italian and the warranty card.

It measures 95 x 42 x 23 mm and the weight is 2.4 mm. The product is entirely made of plastic and beside each USB port has an led indicating the operation. After installing the drivers from the small CD supplied, the hub will be active at 100% and you will be able to Connect external devices such as HD, put it to charge a smartphone, and use the Gigabit Ethernet port for wired connection to the network to make the most of that is slowed down by using a wireless connection.

The USB ports are 3.0, then of last generation, and allow a baud rate of 5Gbps (about 10 times faster than usb 2.0), but are still supported older devices such as USB 2.0 and 1.1. The Gigabit Ethernet port instead supports connections up to 1000 Mbps.

The hub as well as being compatible with Windows operating systems is also compatible with devices with Mac operating system.

Finally I found very convenient this Hub of AUKEY especially for my laptop with only 2 USB ports and no Ethernet port. I also found it convenient to expand and “move” the uncomfortable USB ports located on the back of my iMac. The price of around € 19 on Amazon is pretty low considering the quality of the product.
