UNBOXING & HOW TO USE

The first device you plug in will configure the port, so always connect USB 3-capable hubs or devices first.

The hub’s two USB ports and two sd memory ports have a combined output of 1.5A, devices which need a higher currency may not support, such as Apple SuperDrive (start up currency is 2A at least).
The working temperature of charging chipset is about 40

The USB-C Hub has when connected a glowing blue light, so this is an indication for a ready state. The USB 3.0 ports are easily accessed, the Micro SD card needs to be pressed deeply to get locked. Not really easy for people with larger hands and fingers.
All ports work flawless and detection of connected devices is instant. ( ➡ Ethernet driver see above ).

TRANSFER RATES OF USB 3

USB 3.1 Gen 2 can transfer data up to 10 Gbps. Newer Mac models with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports support these speeds.

Speeds of previous USB versions:

  • USB 3 and USB 3.1 Gen 1 can transfer data up to 5 Gbps.
  • USB 2 can transfer data up to 480 Mbps.
  • USB 1.1 can transfer data up to 12 Mbps.

VERDICT

Even though this product is marketed as a hub for your Macbook or such, I feel the GN30H HUB is a true benefit to your older iMac as well. The use of this Usb-C Hub makes it possible to benefit from the improved transfer speed even on iMacs or MacBooks till end 2013. These machines lack the new Thunderbolt Usb-3 connection ports but can be used by the simple converter adapter as shown in the image above. The overall speed improvement is not as good as the newer Apple machines equipped with a real Thunderbolt usb-c port, but still a significant improvement can be made. So older or newer Macs all benefit when making use of the GN30H HUB. We’re busy with the actual speed/transfer figures to present on this site, so stay tuned for updates.

About the GN30H HUB device itself we can be confident in saying it presents solid performance and well build quality. A fair price for a good performer, what more to wish for. Get connected to the world with a great hub station the GN30H HUB.
