Havit HV-TPC68 USB C Hub Review

USB Type-C is something we are seeing a lot more, not just on motherboards, but on laptops as well. The Type-C connection not only is smaller, but is also the same connection use for Thunderbolt 3. With many new laptops opting for USB Type-C and having Thunderbolt 3 there is a lot of bandwidth there that really is not used, especially when it comes to Ultrabooks. The common thing now with Ultrabooks is to have two Type-C ports and possibly one other normal Type-A port. That is really limiting if you want to connect more than one device. Also one thing that seems to be missing from most new Ultrabooks is a card reader. So that is where the new USB Type-C hubs come in and today we are checking out the Havit HV-TCP68, which gives you three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a card reader, HDMI, and a Type-C port which can be used for charging. Let’s see if it is the perfect accessory for your Ultrabook.

Special thanks to Havit for providing us with the HV-TPC68 USB C Hub to review.
