With the 2015 MacBook, Apple designers went all-in on the new USB-C standard, adding only a single USB-C port. But the current scarcity of purpose-built USB-C peripherals has users scrambling for adapter cables to connect existing USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices to their new computers.
Today Plugable gives everyone with a USB-C system two new options: the market’s first USB-C flash card reader, along with a USB-C version of its popular E1000 Gigagbit USB-Ethernet adapter. Since both devices plug directly into USB-C, these devices allow users to access flash cards or the network without hassling with expensive and potentially unreliable adapter cables.
Both devices conform to the USB 3.1 Gen 1 specification to transfer data at up to 5Gbps over the tiny USB-C connector. Besides the new 2015 MacBook, they work out of the box with the USB-C equipped Chromebook Pixel (2), along with other soon-to-be-released computers that will feature the new USB-C ports.
The handy USBC-FLASH3 card reader lets users grab images from flash-card-using cameras directly into Photoshop or other imaging software at much faster speeds than a USB 2.0 reader or a WiFi connection to the camera. This is especially useful to photographers who take a lot of photos. The reader also shines in other scenarios where quick transfers from flash card to computer are essential.
The USBC-E1000 Gigabit Ethernet adapter frees WiFi-only MacBook and Chromebook from their reliance on WiFi and provides a stable and reliable wired Ethernet connections near Gigabit speeds.
Both devices are backed by Plugable’s highly rated customer service team in Seattle (USA). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reach us anytime.
