Sabrent has announced the launch of its multifunctional USB-C Hub, the 6-Port Dock with M.2 SSD Slot. This comprehensive hub is designed to seamlessly integrate with a range of devices including MacBooks, laptops, and essential tools for photography like the Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally, offering a one-stop solution for data transfer and storage.
The Sabrent USB-C Hub distinguishes itself with its high-speed connectivity, boasting a 10Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2×1) integrated USB-C cable and up to 90W bypass charging power delivery (PD3.0). This ensures rapid data transfer and efficient charging, crucial for photographers who deal with large files and long shooting sessions. The hub is also equipped with three USB Type-A ports, including two 5Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 1×1) ports for fast peripheral connections and an additional 480Mbps (USB 2.0) port, ideal for connecting devices like keyboards and mice.
Photographers and videographers will appreciate the hub’s HDMI 2.0 port that supports up to 4K@60Hz, perfect for mirroring or extending display modes on external monitors, enhancing the post-production and editing process. The hub also features a Gigabit Ethernet port for stable and fast internet connectivity, essential for cloud backups and online sharing of photographic work.
A key feature that sets this hub apart is the integrated M.2 slot, which supports both M.2 SATA and NVMe SSDs in 2242, 2260, and 2280 form factors. This feature not only offers additional fast storage options but also maintains optimal SSD temperature for reliability, thanks to the hub’s aluminum build and thermal padding.
Designed with versatility in mind, the Sabrent USB-C 6-Port Hub (HB-6PNV) is compatible with various operating systems including Windows, macOS, and Linux, making it a universal tool for all photography and videography needs. It’s now available for purchase on Amazon.
