We at USB-C.today are crazy about USB-C docks. You can imagine our delight when we saw the new ProBASE MacBook Pro monitor stand with built in USB-C hub. This sleek looking device will be a great match for the Mac user, and the shape, choice of material and overal design goes incredibly well with the design of Apple’s flagship products.
The dock will be available in a few different configurations and colours, and it’s available from $ 89.
ProBASE HD Specifications – Monitor Stand with USB Hub & HDMI display
- USB-C x 1 (USB signal in)
- USB-C PD x 1 (Power in)
- 4K HDMI x 1
- USB3.0 x 3
- USB-C DATA x 1
While the monitor stand claims to have 4K display, it’s unfortunately limited to 30Hz at this resolution, as all HDMI 1.4 versions are. This might not be an issue for everyone, but it might be good to be aware of.
The ProBASE HD has been successfully funded on Kickstarter, and the expectation is that shipping will start in September 2017. We’ll be sure to provide a thorough test report once we get our hands on one of the docks.
