The Swedish player Unisynk is a well-known and leading manufacturer of computer and mobile accessories. The company is now launching two new USB-C hubs in its range of five and twelve ports, respectively. The hubs support 8K video and transmissions up to 10 Gbps, both of which are suitable for those looking for that extra experience. Recently, they have also won the Red Dot Awards for their innovative workmanship, where the jury praised the hubs’ extremely practical workmanship.
Focus on users – “a technical level not seen before”
What sets Unisynk’s latest hubs apart from what we’ve seen before is their plug-and-play solution within the framework of 8K PRO. The hubs thus have a technical level that has not been seen before on the market. According to Gabriel Olsson, CEO and founder of Unisynk, they have worked to focus on users and their needs. – The users we see in front of us have the highest performance requirements and want a qualitative and stylish solution that does its job without a headache, says Olsson.
Scandinavian design with support for the most important protocols
According to Unisynk, both hubs are designed in Scandinavia – everything from circuit boards to exteriors. A notable feature is that they also support the most important protocols, including Thunderbolt 3 and 4, HDCP 3.2 and USB-C DisplayPort. According to the company’s CEO, Gabriel Olsson, the 5-port hub is one of his personal favorite products. – The 5-port hub is one of my absolute favorite products. It is extremely practical, at the same time as it is top of the line in terms of performance, he says. This smaller hub gathers a large number of functions in a compact form factor that makes it easy to carry with you to, for example, meetings, travel, holidays, customer visits or offices. The range of ports allows you to access external storage devices, use larger screens or charge portable devices faster. The hardware thus provides the opportunity for users to play FPS games on an external screen for the first time, via a USB-C hub, without a cap of 60 Hz.
Flexible and practical to carry on the go. In the larger hub, which consists of 12 ports (USB-C, 8K PRO), in addition to dual HDMI ports, there is also a card reader for memory cards, network connector and a 3.5 mm socket for connecting headsets, speakers or headphones. This hub is a clear winner for those working on music, presentations, video editing or projects that require more devices connected to the computer.
A larger, but practical USB-C hub, for those who work with heavier projects.
Excellent for both office and leisure
After testing both Unisynk’s models, we can state that the large number of ports in both devices makes the USB-C hubs excellent for both office and leisure. You can connect dual screens and many other devices, such as charging cables for phones, watches and much more. What stands out, of course, is the fast speed of transfer between external storage devices and computers, such as external hard drives. Both models are well suited and can be used for all possible purposes, everything from office work to heavier and more demanding projects where speed plays a crucial role for the entire execution. Today, the hubs are available for purchase directly on Unisynk’s website unisynk.se and at technology chains such as Elgiganten, Kjell & Company, as well as at B2B sales at Telia, Tele2 and Atea. Prices are SEK 1,299 for the 5-door hub, and SEK 2,299 for 12 doors. Properties of the hubs:
