Today I have a nine-in-one USB C hub multiport adapter and this is from my friends over at Lemorele. They sent this out to me to test and check out, and I'll give you my honest review of it and hook it up and show you what it does. So one of the main reasons why I need one of these hubs on my MacBook Air, it only has two USB-C ports on it. So there were a couple of other things that I wanted to hook up to my MacBook on the road or I'm out doing things mobile and also on my iPad mini, which also has a USB-C. The connection is on this nine in one ah, HDMI, three USB and Ethernet hookup memory card and two USB-C connections.
This is kind of cool. You get some stickers with some social media stuff on it and different operating systems, so that's kind of cool. I like that. Fun, fun stickers. I like stickers. You get the unit. The USB-C hub has a nice metal feel to. It feels nice and sturdy. The wire is reinforced rubber. It feels sturdy. It doesn't feel cheap. Here's something I really liked about it. It has a panda, and it's not etched in its kind of part of the actual material, so it's a little panda on the back of it and it says, Panda, I like it. It's the little touches like that. So it doesn't look feel as cold, like a cold piece of equipment.
It looks kind of nice. So I like that plug in and it was really easy. No software was needed. The first thing I hooked up was the HDMI, so I could use an external monitor plugged right in showed right up on the monitor. No problem. Nice and easy. The next test I did was on the Ethernet, so I did a speed test using the WiFi. Then I turned off the Wi-Fi verification. There was no internet connection, hooked up the Ethernet cable once again. Nice and easy, no software. And then I ran the speed test and I got the results when I was hooked into the WiFi. I got two hundred and fifty-six megabytes of download speed over eleven uploads. And when I hoped in the Ethernet cable, it got four hundred and sixty-five megabytes per second over a. On the upload. So there was an increase in the download, and it was a good connection. Next, I tested the memory card readers first. I plugged the memory card into my MacBook and I got a read speed of 30 megabytes per second with a write speed of thirty-eight megabytes per second. Then I took the same memory card, plugged it straight into the unit and I got a write speed of twenty-two megabytes per second with a read speed of thirty-one megabytes per second. Then I took the memory card, put it into an adapter, and plugged it into one of the USB A connections. And I got a write speed of 28 megabytes per second with a read speed of 38 megabytes per second.
Next, I wanted to test the speed of my Samsung SSD drive, so I plugged it straight into my MacBook and I got a write speed of five point ninety three megabytes per second with a read speed of six hundred and fifty-two megabytes per second. I took the unit, plugged it into the hub and the USB C, and it didn't work. It just didn't read it. I tried a couple of different cables, it didn't read it. I don't know why. I then used a USB, cable and hooked it into the hub, and I got a write speed of thirty-six megabytes per second with a read speed of thirty-two megabytes per second. So that lets me know that if I'm going to use my SSD drive, I'm going. I have to hook that straight into the MacBook. All the ports worked, I was able to use it simultaneously, didn't feel like it was overheating. I hooked it into my iPad mini. All the ports work the same, even the Ethernet. It does what I needed to do. It's nice, small, portable so I can throw that in my bag and use it when I'm out in the road creating content.
