Ethernet and 4K 60Hz Capabilities for Amplified Functionality and Versatility Added
Leading computer accessories company Plugable introduces the latest iteration of its top-rated hub with the launch of the USBC-7IN1E, announced today during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). With so many Chinese brands flooding the USB-C hub market with imperfect products, Plugable was determined to deliver a new standard of product excellence. With the chipsets and technology now advancing, Plugable took the opportunity to outdo themselves in the hub space. This new hub brings back all of the popular features of its predecessor. And after listening to consumer feedback surrounding the original form factor and port layout, the new USB-C hub now features an Ethernet port for advanced connectivity plus 4K 60Hz functionality over HDMI. Easily transform one USB-C port into 7 additional ports, connecting an HDMI monitor, 2 USB devices, a microSD and full-sized SD card, an Ethernet connection, and a USB-C pass-through port for the ability to charge your laptop all through one USB-C cable back to your laptop. The USBC-7IN1E is available on Amazon in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, Newegg, and Walmart for $34.95 with a $5 off coupon on Amazon.
As is the case with all of Plugable’s products, the USBC-7IN1E has been rigorously tested, further cementing Plugable’s position as a leader in the USB space. The company uses advanced testing with a USB Power Delivery and Type-C Analyzer, a certified protocol analyzer. And as members of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) Plugable ensures the products being released under their name are of utmost quality and consistently satisfy customers. Plugable reinforces this confidence with a 2-year warranty, assuring customers of its dedication to providing top-notch products and expertise that won’t lead them astray.
Compatibility Thrives with Updated Chipset and DisplayPort Capabilities
The USBC-7IN1E uses one of the best chipsets available on the hub market to ensure universal compatibility. This new hub has lasting power and quality that others in the space lack. Users can depend on the USBC-7IN1E to work with a wide array of products, including Windows 10, macOS, Linux, ChromeOS, Android, iOS, and iPadOS systems with compatible USB-C ports. This USB-C multiport adapter was created to be a hub for everyone, letting Plugable do the work so that users can have confidence knowing the hub will work with their laptop.
With the inclusion of support for DisplayPort 1.4 (DP 1.4), the USBC-7IN1E can achieve resolutions of up to 4K 60Hz, rather than the standard 30Hz. As one of the few in the space that offers this, the new addition makes this hub the perfect solution for those workers, gamers, or creatives who need to work off of monitors at higher refresh rates and resolutions. With this, users won’t need to downgrade their monitors or peripherals in order to include the USBC-7IN1E in their workflow, as long as their system supports DP 1.4.
Connect More, Settle Less with Maximized Charging and Connectivity
Through extensive testing, Plugable has optimized the hub to maximize your laptop’s charging while still offering full access to all port functionality. With up to 87W Power Delivery, there’s a near-perfect amount of reserved power, meaning the laptop will charge at its maximum rate with a proper power budget. With this, users will avoid overdrawing their power or voltage drops and will ensure that all ports work for the duration of their workflow.
With laptops getting thinner and losing much-needed ports, the USBC-7IN1E is perfect for those looking to connect an HDMI monitor, peripherals, USB-C power adapter, and have a wired Ethernet connection simultaneously, without having to sacrifice all of the ports on your laptop or a large amount of desk real estate. The hub’s updated design and port layout make it easy for users to use and integrate directly into their workflows, while the specs and technical design provide the things they need to feel accomplished after a stint of hard work.
All Plugable products are backed by a 2-year limited parts and labor warranty as well as Washington-based email customer service support.
