I would recommend the Anker 10-port USB hub. It's a little bit on the expensive side, as it is normally listed for just under $80, but there is a sale on Amazon that has it listed for $33. Here are some of the features: Data Transfer to 5 Gb/s on all 7 available ports. 3 Additional "charging" ports that provide 2.1A so they can easily charge your phones, ...

I think you are probably using the wrong terms here. You seem to want basically a USB extension, cables, but with the ends that look nice. What you may be looking for would be something like a USB patch panel. These are mostly used for rankmount servers. I haven't really seen anything targeted at the desktop market. I don't have an particular experience ...

There are zero products of your specification. I suggest that you purchase multiple extension cables and group them together and simply use them. I dont think you will ever reach out to the rear end of your computer to check out the plugged in cable and plug it out. You can tape those cables together

If a good USB Hub with more than 4 ports is what you are looking for then you should check out Anker USB Hubs like this one https://www.anker.com/products/A7513141 It's a 7 port Aluminum hub, USB 3.0, with a 5V 3.0A power adapter. As for reviews.... Their site: From Amazon: They make hubs that go from 4 ports to 14 ports so there is a lot of choice. ...

Nothing with more than 2 ports exists as far as I know. (2017-07) Even the chips to make it are limited to 2 ports as far as I can tell. Wanted this for a while myself for a group of pixels and other devices that are all type C. They are getting closer: Lifepowr has an indiegogo with 100W type c dual ports. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lifepowr-a3-...

My favourite by far is the mbeat 7 port hub. 4xUSB_3.0 + 3xUSB_2.0 - actually the USB 2's are really handy for incompatible Logitech gear. Individual switches Dull LEDs on the top that can be covered. Good throughput - see my wiring layout below. NOT compact, but its flat, with all ports along the one side - so its good to attach to the back of the table ...

Obviously you will have additional USB 2.0 headers on your motherboard, so I'll assume you need USB 3.0 ports. A cable that is an extension and comes from the back to front is not that elegant, it'll just add clutter. Instead, you could get a panel that plugs to your front port optical drive bay: 4-port front panel and a PCI-Express 3.0 card: pci-...

The Cable Matters 10 Meter(33ft) USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable is what you're looking for. It doesn't come with a power adapter, but unlike most USB repeaters, it can be used with one. I've read that this repeater works great with this generic 5V adapter, which means you can have a fully powered USB hub at the end of the cable with no problems. These two ...

I would suggest a $9.95 Dynex DXHUB23 4-Port USB Hub. Failing that, you could employ a USB 2.0 active repeater cable. These abound aplenty, just have a search on google. For example, for $14.95, on Amazon, there is the PTC Premium 33ft / 10 Meter USB 2.0 Active Repeater / Extension Cable: If you really want to extend a long way (20m) then you could employ ...

I don't think there are any devices that can use USB3.1gen2 potential, so if USB3.1gen1 is OK for you, you should take a look at Dell D6000 docking station: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-universal-dock-d6000/apd/452-bcyt/pc-accessories It has: 1x USB 3.1gen1 type-C port 4x USB 3.1gen1 type-A port 2x DP port (5k capable) 1x HDMI port RJ45 (Ethernet) ...

Shortly: NO. Long: it gets really complicated, for sure there are bandwidth limitations and a hub will always be limited. If you also introduce external display support, you should be aware that this cuts the maximum possible bandwith a LOT. You will probably never be able to use a 5K external display and have a 10GBe ethernet connection from a single USB-...

If you are using Linux there is something called USB over IP. There are is even a tutorial on setting it up on Raspberry Pi. So grab a 30$ single board computer and you are done. There was some Windows effort on this but it seems dead now. Otherwise if the distance is not that big and your computer (a notebook presumably) supports it I would look into USB-C ...

6) How about a 3.5mm male-3.5mm female four pole TRRS (tip-ring-ring-sleeve) extension cord? The four pole is needed since it's a headset, not just headphones (which only need three pole, tip-ring-sleeve). Examples shown at https://www.google.com/search?psb=1&tbm=shop&q=3.5mm%20headset%20extension%20cable . Please confirm the plug on the end of ...

Technical reason: A USB-C device must be driven by a USB-C 'uplink' port in the PC. Since your PC does not have a USB-C port, no USB-C device can connect. Therefore, I'd suggest adding a USB-C card such as a $19 card from NewEgg, or a $25 card from Amazon. Both connect to PCIe slots on your desktop motherboard, so please check that you have the necessary ...

I found the answer on Stack Exchange’s “Super User” fourm. This is taken directly from the post in “Super User”, ‘The chips don’t exist currently’. It is possible for this to be a thing, but USB-C is too new of a technology for this to be out yet. I’d expect this to be thing (assuming the COVID-19 outbreak ends before the end of Q2 in 2020 and the world ...

A new HUB: Here is a USB-C hub with 4x USB-A. Because it does not have other features, (such as video) it will require less power itself and therefore allow more power to flow to your devices. It has power pass-through as well, but the power available without the pass-through is dependent on your laptop and the devices that you plan to plug in. Fan ...

EDIT 7/5/2020: It has been brought to my attention that this device only supports audio. I think a device like this 'Twinkk USB C Splitter' is what you're looking for. It costs $15.99 and allows you to charge your device while also plugging in a data connection (In this case, your ASUS Zenscreen) at the same time.

These small splitters should be avoided at all costs. As Benson Leung's post explains There are no active components inside. It bridges many pins (power, data, gnd, cc) among the three USB-C connectors). What this means is that your phone or laptop can negotiated much higher voltage than vSafe5V, and that will just magically show up on the other USB-C ...

I believe a standard USB-C splitter would do the job, no?

Elecrow AUS50024E (1920x1080 or 2560x1600 HDR, 10.1") they have a big selection, visit their website. They make no mention of this working with Dex but do say: Works perfectly for PS3, PS4, WiiU, XBOX360, Raspberry Pi 3, 2, & 1 Model B or B+, industrial equipment, car audio and video, car headrest, medical equipment display.

Wavlink 7-Port USB 3.0 Superspeed Hub with 48W Power Adapter €25,99 I've had a pretty good experience with Wavlink products in the past. They seem to be good at delivering a premium look and feel without the premium price. It claims to be capable of Transfer data at speeds of up to 5 Gbps through 7 ports and Compatible with the BC 1.2 charging ...

I was originally thinking of recommending you a wall plugged USB hub, however; it seems you already went that route and the hubs were unable to negotiate the power necessary for reliability. Because of this, I had to take a step back and think of an approach that would be guaranteed to run two HDD's at the same time. I ultimately decided to recommend you ...

Anker 4-Port USB 3.0 Ultra-Slim Portable Data Hub with 12W Power Adapter - $16.99 Based on the fact that your HDD is intended to work with simply a single USB 2.0 port, I'm going to assume that it's simply a bit of a power consumption issue and a simple powered USB hub will fix your issues. There's a wide variety of USB hubs available, but this one is by a ...

The Arc Hub can supposedly do this, but it's expensive, as such hubs are still relatively new.

have a look at the http://www.targus.com/us/universal-usb-3_0-dv-docking-station-acp70usz I think you are looking for port replicator or docking station. It is useful for laptops/tablets but for fixed PC the cable ties/velcro is better option. And probably a box to put the cables in ;)

I've seen only one so far, Bourge Design's Arc Hub: https://www.bourgedesign.com/archub I don't believe the hub is available yet, but it's scheduled for release within the next couple of months. Unfortunately, it's not suitable for my own needs, as the device's two type-C ports are apparently for charging only--no data. I also want "Gen. 2" type-A ports; ...

the best one I have found so far is LETSCOM USB C Hub, 8 in 1 USB C Adapter with Wireless Charger, 4K HDMI, USB C Power Delivery, 3 USB 3.0 Ports, SD/TF Card Reader, Compatible for USB Type C Devices not sure if it does what you need but its pretty efficient obviously depending on the phone and you'd need to check that it is compatible with your device
