Review: Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub

Published

on

Laptops these days are getting thinner and lighter. While they are all impressive to look at and carry around, the slim and light design often comes with a few drawbacks. These usually include a reduction in the number of essential ports such as USB, HDMI, and so on. Instead, you are expected to buy expensive dongles in order to fulfill your connectivity needs. This is where Ugreen wants to step in to fill up the gap by offering affordable solutions.

The company has launched its new Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub, which essentially is what is claims to be – a USB-C Hub – and offers three USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI port. You also get a 100W Power Delivery Charger port which can be used to charge up your smartphones, tablets and laptops, using the USB-C or Thunderbolt interface.

The design of the Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub is very good. The company has used quality material to construct it. While the device is made entirely of hard plastic, the grey metal finish is top notch.

It is also quite lightweight to carry around. The USB 3.0 ports on the hub can transfer data at speeds of up to 5Gbps. Since the hub itself is powered, it can handle multiple USB 3.0 connectivity at the same time, with ease.

The USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapter supports high resolution video content up to 4k@30Hz or 1080P@60Hz. For 4K resolution, however, the company recommends that the HDMI cable length should be shorter than 5 meters.

The company also says not to plug and unplug the HDMI port when the hub is powerered on to minimize damage to the hub or other devices connected to it.

The overall build quality is pretty good and the device functions as advertised. However, not every laptop on the market have USB-C ports on the sides.

For instance, the laptop I used for this review had the USB-C port at the rear of the laptop. Since the Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub is designed to connect with laptops that have USB-C ports on the sides, it was a bit difficult for me to use it while reviewing it.

During our test, the hub was always connected to a flash drive, a mobile hard disk drive and a wireless mouse. We also connected it to a monitor, using the HDMI port. Everything felt nice and smooth – the wireless mouse was smooth to use without any lag, the data of the flash drive and the mobile hard disk was read perfectly and the content displayed on the monitor looked good, too.

For a price of AED 130, the Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub is great value for money considering it offers three USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port and a USB-C/Thunderbolt port. So, if you are on the market of a great and pocket-friendly USB-C Hub for your razor-thin laptop, the Ugreen 5-in-1 USB-C Hub could be one of the options you could consider.

Price: AED 130

Summary

During our test, the hub was always connected to a flash drive, a mobile hard disk drive and a wireless mouse. We also connected it to a monitor, using the HDMI port. Everything felt nice and smooth – the wireless mouse was smooth to use without any lag, the data of the flash drive and the mobile hard disk was read perfectly and the content displayed on the monitor looked good, too.

CORSAIR Launches New Full-Tower 7000 Series Cases

Published

on

CORSAIR has announced a new series of full-tower ATX cases to accommodate the biggest, most ambitious enthusiast builds: the CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW and the CORSAIR iCUE 7000X RGB. Available in black and white, both 7000 Series cases feature a mammoth interior for maximum cooling potential, accommodating multiple radiators – up to three 360mm or two 420mm simultaneously. Exceptional airflow comes courtesy of included 140mm PWM fans featuring CORSAIR AirGuide technology, while the popular CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system helps you easily create tidy, professional-looking builds.

Choosing from either the 7000D AIRFLOW’s perforated steel high-airflow front panel, or the 7000X RGB’s three beautiful tempered glass windows to showcase your system and lighting, PC enthusiasts will find the ideal case for their next masterpiece. The cavernous interior of 7000 Series cases offers a multitude of cooling configurations to handle almost any PC cooling setup, with room for up to 12x 120mm or 7x 140mm cooling fans, or multiple radiators including up to 3x 360mm or 2x 420mm simultaneously. A specialized motherboard tray with customizable fan mounts enables you to install up to four 120mm fans or up to a 480mm radiator into the side of the case.

The 7000D AIRFLOW includes three 140mm fans with CORSAIR AirGuide technology, for concentrated airflow directed toward your PC’s hottest components. The 7000X RGB goes a step further and adds radiant RGB lighting with four included SP140 RGB ELITE AirGuide fans, each equipped with eight individually addressable RGB LEDs. An included iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT controller, CORSAIR iCUE software, and a PWM fan repeater provide comprehensive control of not only lighting but fan speed and performance too. Both the 7000D AIRFLOW and 7000X RGB offer an abundance of storage space including 6x combo 2.5in / 3.5in drive trays and 3x 2.5in SSD mounts. A full array of front panel I/O connections including a USB 3.1 Type-C port and 4x USB 3.0 ports ensure the 7000 Series meets the needs of nearly any system.

The 7000 Series’ tempered glass window showcases your premium components, while the case cleverly conceals your cables. The CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system routes major cables through a single hidden channel, with a spacious 30mm of routing depth behind the motherboard and two tool-free hinged side panels for easy access. A three-slot vertical GPU mount on the PSU shroud puts any size graphics card center stage.

The spacious interior of both 7000 Series cases are optimal for housing the new CORSAIR H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler. With a massive 420mm radiator, three ML140 RGB PWM fans, and an eye-catching RGB pump head, the H170i ELITE CAPELLIX is the highest performing all-in-one cooler from CORSAIR to date. Its extreme cooling performance is powered by a low-noise centrifugal pump, generating less than 20 dBA. A split-flow copper cold plate rapidly absorbs heat from your CPU, while the ML140 RGB fans spin up to 2,000 RPM to disperse that heat after it reaches the radiator.

This top-tier performance is complemented by dynamic RGB lighting from 33 ultra-bright, power-efficient CAPELLIX LEDs in the pump head and eight individually addressable RGB LEDs per ML140 RGB fan. With the incredible customization offered by the included CORSAIR iCUE COMMANDER CORE Controller and powerful CORSAIR iCUE software, you can put the spotlight on your cooling. The H170i ELITE CAPELLIX is compatible with almost every modern Intel and AMD CPU, including LGA 1200, 115X, 2066, and AM4 sockets.

With the launch of the 7000 Series, ORIGIN PC is adding the 7000D AIRFLOW and 7000X RGB cases to its award-winning line of GENESIS custom PCs. Boasting the highest-end hardware, from Intel Core i9 and AMD Ryzen CPUs to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-Series graphics, ORIGIN PC’s GENESIS line of desktops combines superpowered specs with maximum customization, letting you configure your dream PC just the way you want.

The CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW, 7000X RGB, and H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler are available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW and 7000X RGB are backed by a two-year warranty, and the H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler is backed by a five-year warranty, alongside the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network.

For up-to-date pricing of the CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW, 7000X RGB, and H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler, please refer to the CORSAIR website or contact your local CORSAIR sales or PR representative.
