Last week Microsoft started shipping the new Surface Dock 2 and the Microsoft Surface USB-C Travel Hub. Since I usually do a lot of presentations at events, I ordered a Microsoft or Surface USB-C Travel Hub, which allows me to replace many of my Surface adapters for HDMI, Ethernet, or additional USB-A ports. I got the Microsoft Surface USB-C Travel Hub a couple of days ago, and I want to share my first impressions as well as a mini review, right here.
You can buy the Microsoft Surface USB-C Travel Hub here.
The Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub is designed for professionals who travel, so this adapter can give you the extra ports and connections you need when you work on-the-go. It works with PCs and Surface devices that have a USB-C port. It works with different versions of Windows, macOS, Android, Chrome OS.
The Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub can be connected to a USB-C port on your machine, which needs to support USB-C alt Mode. It provides you with the following ports:
- HDMI 2.0 (supports a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz)
- Gigabit Ethernet
- USB-A 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) USB-A port with pass-through accessory charging
- USB-C 3.2 Gen2 (10 Gbps) port with pass-through accessory charging
