The Tiny Desert West USB-C Hub

It’s difficult to find a good an cheap USB-C dongle for your Mac, but I think I finally found one!

 

 

PROS

  • Cheap
  • Very durable and cool design
  • Works well and fast
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • No SD-card slot

VERDICT

The Desert West USB-C dongle works as advertised: you plug it in and you get three full sized USB-A inputs and one extra USB-C input. I’ve tried a lot of dongles in the past and had many issues, but the Desert West actually performed very well. I had no issues plugging in two hard drives. I also tried plugging in a usb-flash drive from Toshiba and that worked very well.

The biggest issue is that I couldn’t plug in an SD-card. For videomakers this might be a problem, but there are other dongles for that too lol. You can find the Desert West here.

Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
