EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 7-Port Hub Adapter review
You’ve built yourself a fancy new computer, or perhaps you’ve got a laptop with one available USB-C port. You know the drill. You need more ports because you’ve got an external USB drive you need to connect, a weird non-Bluetooth connector for your keyboard/mouse combo, your phone to transfer off all the photos of food you took, a microUSB cable you use to access your kid’s camera, a WiFi dongle you keep active for when your desktop’s internet goes down, a Bluetooth receiver, and scene. The EZQuest USB-C Gen 2 7-Port Hub Adapter can help with that.
3xUSB-C 10Gbps Gen 2 ports, 3xUSB 3.0 5Gbps ports, and one PD 3.0 port should you be on a laptop and wish to charge (with 5Gbps data should you not.)

Not listed in the specs above is that it also appears to support USB OTG as I just connected a keyboard, mouse, and a couple of unsupported devices via the hub.
I do not have enough bandwidth-hogging USB devices to test this to its full extent. My arsenal of USB bandwidth hogs comes in at about 2.5Gbps (225MB per second on a drive + a fairly slow USB stick I have,) which this more than handles. As such if you’re relying on my review for above 225 megabytes per second data transfer, you need to look elsewhere.
This more than handles any consumer application bandwidth I can think of. My general belief is if I can’t overload it I think you’ll be pleased.
As of this writing supply chain issues had delayed the release of the EZQuest USB-C 7-Port Gen 2 Hub Adapter. This is schedule to go live around the time they expect the issues to be resolved.
You can check out the EZQuest USB-C 7-Port Gen 2 Hub Adapter on the manufacturer’s site, and it should also be available on their Amazon store.
