5.0 out of 5 starsAs good as it gets

When this Amazon Basics Type C docking port arrived it had me scratching my head. It had a good set of instructions and it was very well packed but how much use was it. While I can hold my own with the average computer owner I am by means a techie so it was time to play (study).
This Item is the smallest and neatest of three hubs. on offer. Simply put its job it to allow you to make use of the Type C Socket that is fast becoming the industry standard USB. Most of us will have experience of some, if not all the various, USB's their many and varied configurations. Today there are in general usage at least 5 USB sockets with the latest one being Type C and you have to have all bits that go with them to have the best use of your devices.
Now for a change manufacturers seem to be getting ahead of the game. This dock has one male plug (a C) and no fewer than 10 female sockets of various types. No more having multiple leads,to carry about and no more forgetting the one you really need (which is on your desk at home). Its all here and ready to use.
So there we have it a multi hub that is easy to use, reasonably easy to carry and fun to use .
5.0 out of 5 starsSuperb addon, well made and 100% functional - all the ports you will ever need.

AmazonBasics Aluminium Type-C Docking with Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA, 3 USB-A, Ethernet, SD/TF Card Reader, Audio and Type-C Charging Port (PD 100W) - Compact, Black
In the box. You get the docking station with attached USB C cable and instructions.
Build. The build is anything but basic. It is housed in aluminium and built to last and put up with daily use. The build is impeccable.
Functions. It reads SD cards, outputs HDMI signals, acts as a charging point, USB hub and headphone amplifier., has a network pass through plus Mac connections. It is very comprehensive.
Using. It does all the functions that are probably not built into your average netbook, notebook or surface tablet to save space. It works really well and is really a must have if you do a lot of connectivity etc.
Performance. It is fast and 100% reliable. I have only been using it for a few days but it has already become indispensable. It saves connecting several card readers, sound cards and network repeaters, this does it all in one compact box. The headphone output is low noise and clear to.
Overall. This is the only add on most people will need. It is superbly made, fast and has all the functions sadly left off most small computers and tablets to save space. Amazon have a winner hear and its anything but basic. So useful and highly recommended.
