We assess these functions (where available): power (charging), USB data transfer, USB-C data transfer, HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, Ethernet, SD card and microSD card. We weighted the scores as not all hubs support the same functions.
Our review will help you find the products that:
- connect successfully with the most devices
