The USB-C Multiport MX Adapter helps users unlock the full potential of the M1 Macs.

Ever since I made the switch to Thunderbolt/USB-C Mac laptops, I have been using a variety of hubs and docks to connect to external devices. Many third-party companies create specialized hubs and adapters to ensure that Mac users’ needs are met when it comes to connectivity. Satechi, a brand known for designing premium-grade products that work well with Mac machines has recently released a new connectivity option with the USB-C Multiport MX Adapter.

DETAILS

The Satechi USB-C Multiport MX Adapter is designed to be powerful and sleek at the same time. It features dual 4K HDMI ports, Gigabit Ethernet, USB-C PD charging, USB- C data, USB-A data, SD card readers, and an audio jack. The end of the adapter has a short USB-C connector cable that plugs directly into your M1 Mac computer.

It is designed to work with M1 devices so that users get the most out of their machines, but some non-Mac computers are compatible with the adapter (see list below). The dual HDMI ports provide the option for users to get up to 60Hz from one port and up to 30Hz refresh rates from the connected monitors. It is important to note that the USB ports (other than the PD port) do not support charging or CD readers such as the Apple SuperDrive.
