    Looking for a good quality, durable (everyday usage) USB-C hub/adapter.

    Needs to have:
    - HDMI
    - Ethernet
    - SD card reader

    Been looking at these 2:

    https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/satechi-type-c-pro-hub-w-4k-hdmi-thunderbolt-3-space-grey-satechi

    Has anyone had any experience with these or any others and have recommendations?

    I'm all ears. If it's possible to connect 2 external monitors to it, thatd be even better, but happy with just the one.

    Thanks!

    Damn it looks bulky though..

    Holy crap, that's a gigantic dock!

    Seems we are going down the same path as phones. Smaller, thinner, lighter, less connectors, less battery... So that you end up having to buy an add on brick that is as big as the phone to make it useable...
