And, while technology advances, it appears that most of us will be left with even fewer ports in our ultralight/slim laptops! Isn’t that correct? Most laptops/ultrabooks now have just one Thunderbolt/USB-C connector to serve all of our demands, with the goal of reducing the thickness to a few milimeters if possible! As a result, an increasing number of businesses are establishing their own hubs, which can cost anything from a few dollars to many thousands of dollars, depending on how deep our pockets are. Baseus is a name we’re all familiar with, and most of you adore their VFM goods as much as we do. The Baseus Working Station Type-C HUB is a true behemoth, both in terms of size and capability, with 17 ports to connect our peripherals while keeping the host device charged and providing seamless connectivity for a larger workspace. It is Plug and Play ready, which means it does not require any software, drivers, or a lengthy setup process. Let’s take a closer look at how it works.
As you may have noticed, the Baseus 17-in-1 USB-C Hub comes in a large and attractive box. It includes everything we need to connect our laptop/Mac Mini/Ultrabook to our accessories, including a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect the hub to our notebook, as well as three plug adapters for UK, EU, and US socket types.
Features 3 HDMI 4K, Ethernet, Type-C PD, Type-C PC, DC power, SD&TF Card Reader, 3.5mm Audio, 2 Type-C ports, 3 USB3.0 and 2 USB2.0, USB-C port with power delivery to the host via the included USB-C to USB-C cable Portable, plug-and-play design.
Triple Display Flexibility: Three different display modes Increase your efficiency by three times. With a single HDMI display, it supports resolutions up to 4K(3840*2160)@60Hz, 4K(3840*2160)@30Hz with two HDMI displays, and 1080P with three HDMI displays. With high-speed networking and support for Ultra HD 4K screens, the Baseus dock improved productivity and entertainment possibilities. NOTE: Displays on Apple computers (MAC OSmac os) are only in Mirror mode.
Stable Connection & Transmission Three 3. 0 USB ports with up to 5 Gbps transmission speeds connect to your phone, tablet, and hard drive for simple data transfer. Two USB2.0 ports for a more stable keyboard and mouse connection; SD and TF card ports are included for easy access to files stored on universal SD and Micro SD memory cards. The 1000Mbps Ethernet connector guarantees a more stable and quicker network connection (supports 10/100/1000Mbps rates).

Samsung Galaxy Note S10/plus, S9/plus, S8/plus, and Huawei high-end series are also compatible with the cell phone (DP Alt Mode).

The Baseus Working Station Type-C HUB is built of solid aluminium and may be set up vertically on a removable stand to conserve space or horizontally if you have enough room. The hub’s aluminium base keeps it firmly in place while also charging other devices and providing a wide range of communication choices. It’s very heavy, yet it fits easily into any PC carry bag.
After almost two weeks of daily use, I must admit that it met my expectations, providing adequate transfer speeds, acceptable quality, and dependability when needed.
Every Day Performance
So, what can we expect to find on this massive USB hub? A SD card slot, microSD card slot, 3x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, 2x USB 3.0 Type-C ports, and a 3.5 mm audio combo jack are all found on the front, from top to bottom. Be aware that only one card reader can be used at a time – but having the option is still nice.
A USB-C PD port for connecting a USB-C PD charger, a USB-C PD port for connecting to a computer, 2x USB 2.0 Type-A ports, 3x HDMI connectors, a DC jack for powering the hub (it needs some juice, doesn’t it?) and a Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port can all be found on the rear of the gadget. It’s worth noting that the Baseus Working Station Type-C HUB offers up to 100 Watt of USB-C PD power, so you’ll have no trouble charging any device quickly.
Any user can enjoy high definition display on up to three additional monitors with this hub-giant (as long as your hardware can cope with them). To be more specific, the device supports conventional HDMI 1080p on all three ports. If you need more, you can easily achieve [email protected] output on one HDMI port and [email protected] output on two more ports. In my configuration, I had no problems connecting it to both a [email protected] and an [email protected] monitor at the same time.
