StarTech Wants Transition To USB Type-C And Thunderbolt 3 To Be As Seamless As Possible

StarTech specializes in making hard to find cables and adapters for all sorts of unique computing needs. To help transition to USB 3.1 Type-C connectors and the Thunderbolt 3 specification, StarTech created a line of USB Type-C products to meet almost any need.

The company's new products all make use of Type-C connectors in one way or another. There are display adapters available that convert USB Type-C to VGA or DVI outputs, a USB hub that splits a single Type-C port to one Type-C and three USB 3.0 ports, and the company is offering four different network adapters, one of which offers an extra USB 3.0 port.

StarTech is also well known for making cables, many of them otherwise hard to find. The company has continued that trend with Type-C connectors, stating that it wishes to aid the transition to the new format by making it easy to use legacy devices on Type-C ports. StarTech offers USB Type-C to USB-A and USB-B cables in both USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 speeds, among others.

    "to meet almost any need"

    Really? Is this news or a press release? How about a USB-C hub with an upstream USB-C PORT instead of a three inch cable? USB-C has been on the market for 10 months and STILL nobody can make a hub that isn't a dongle. I can't be the only one that would like my hub on the back of my desk or undr my desk rather than dangling from my laptop.

    I sooooooo agree .. can't I have a 10-15ft between my computer and that hub ???
