The Satechi Type-C Pro Hub is an answer to the lack of port diversity in the latest MacBook Pro lineup. While some users of the 2016 MacBook Pro may feel that USB-C doesn’t trouble them at all, the ability to plug in multiple devices with the hub is very useful. Thanks to the power that USB-C provides, the Pro Hub only requires two USB-C ports to add a host of I/O options to a 2016 MacBook Pro.
Another nice feature is there are separate slots for microSD and SD cards, so you don't need a microSD to SD adapter. The gadget consumes one USB 3.0 port from your desktop or laptop and delivers 3 USB 3.0 ports. The Hub and Card Reader is affordable and quite compact, with a built-in USB cable. Make sure that you have a USB-C to USB 3.0 adapter if you intend to use this with the newest MacBook Pro laptops which only come with USB-C ports.
How well built Is The Pro Hub?
Satechi sent me a Type-C Pro Hub to test, and I was quickly awed with the hub's manufacture quality. The Pro Hub's refined aluminum-body construction feels like a solid, well-built piece of metal close by. It's reminiscent of the aluminum Apple TV remotes. The body of the Pro Hub and its USB-C connectors didn't effortlessly flex under weight, something that I'm certain will add to its life span.

- USB Type-C connector
