MacBook Accessories Unboxing: [PT-50110] 

9-Port Fully functional Type-C Hub 

Reposted by teXch
With Apple's release of the new M1 chip MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini, there's a significant performance boost that has rekindled the public's interest in Mac. Unfortunately, these newly upgraded Mac series all come with only two USB-C ports. For users requiring multiple connections or even video output, they must resort to buying USB-C adapters to convert the signal.

Using the PERFEKTMulti-functional HUBin practice:

Before unboxing, I'd like to explain why I have such high demands for a good product. As I am an IT manager at a high-end conference hall, my job isn't just about maintaining equipment. Providing lecturers with better accessories can facilitate smoother conference proceedings. Therefore, after purchasing a product, I'll test each detail thoroughly to ensure the quality of the conference. (The picture above shows the setup for a small conference, where only a presentation pointer and audio-visual output are required.)

Testing the Audio-VisualTransmission ofthe PERFEKT HUB:

Audio-visual transmission is divided into two methods: HDMI and VGA. The HDMI transmission can support up to a 4K/30Hz video resolution, while the VGA transmission can support up to 1080P/60Hz video resolution. Since my workplace hasn't fully transitioned to HDMI yet, the availability of VGA transmission is still required. However, since VGA is an analog signal, the distortion effect can be more pronounced than the digital signal of HDMI. Additionally, if there's also a need to provide audio output during VGA transmission, an external 3.5mm audio cable is required. Meanwhile, HDMI transmission can play audio directly without needing any additional cables.

PERFEKT PT-50110 Power Test:

Given that the PERFEKT hub is positioned as a flagship product, to ensure that the entire MacBook Pro series is powered adequately, the charging specification can support up to 20V/5A 100 watts. My MacBook Pro is a 13-inch model from 2019, which only requires 60 watts for full-speed charging. (Upon testing, it was found that when connected to the charger, it can provide additional charging to the phone through the USB-A; however, if not connected to the charger, it cannot provide additional power to the phone from the computer.)

Data Transfer Test:

Data transfer is one of the primary uses when users connect an external hub. On the right side, it features three USB-A ports and an SD/TF card slot for data transfer. In terms of transfer speed, it complies with the specifications set by the USB-IF association, with the fastest speed reaching up to 5Gbps. Although this is still a ways off from Apple's ThunderBolt, the relative cost is also considerably reduced.

PERFEKT PT-51110 Network Test:

Some hubs, due to their design, can interfere with WiFi and Bluetooth wireless transmission. Based on the author's test, this PERFEKT hub does not have interference issues. As for wired network transmission, since the author often encounters professional speakers doing online demos during work, some data-heavy projects require a physical network connection to run smoothly. Therefore, it's essential to have an RJ45 network port.
