Two of the things computer users crave are storage and connectivity and with the new Minix Neo USB-C storage hub you actually get both.
Onboard the device, designed exclusively for the Apple MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, is either 120GB or 240GB of SSD (solid state drive) storage.
The unit is just 11.5cm long, 4.35cm wide and just 1.1cm thick.
There is a single USB-C cable to connect to your computer or laptop and the hub itself has a USB-C port to replace the one occupied by the cable along with two USB 3.0 ports and a HDMI port.
Think of it like a SSD drive with ports or hub with a built in memory. You get two products in one.
The USB-C port on the Minix Neo USB-C storage hub can deliver data and it also allows for power passthrough so you can still charge your laptop while it’s connected.
It’s not a Thunderbolt 3 port so don’t expect to connect another monitor through here.
The HDMI port can come to the rescue here and can handle connecting a 4K external display at 30Hz.
And on top of that connectivity, the Minix Neo USB-C storage hub also offers fast SSD storage.
The 120GB version supports up to 350MB/s read and write speed while the 240GB model gets up to 400MB/s.
When connected, the device shows up on your devices list in the same way as an external hard drive or USB thumb drive.
Users can access the content onboard also through any one of the ports.
For example, if you have video content saved on the SSD, you can view it on your TV through a HDMI cable.
The Minix Neo USB-C storage hub comes with a three-year warranty and is available in space grey or silver to suit your MacBook.
Minix Neo USB-C storage hub is priced at $US99.90 (240GB) and $US79.90 (120GB) and can be purchased through Amazon.
It is the perfect companion for your Apple laptop.
