While there is nothing ground-breaking about this USB-C adapter, Ugreen has made a truly useful device by including Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI, among others.
Most other reputable brands estimate similar accessories in the $ 60- $ 90 range. Ugreen are offering their USB-C multiport adapter for $ 52, not to mention $ 40 on various promotional sales days. Compared to the $ 70 USB-C AV Adapter from Apple or Belkin's standalone USB-C for Ethernet for $ 35. Ugreen has managed to release an excellent device with many ports and, most importantly, the price tag on the product gives a head start in accessibility to each of the well-known competitors in the adapter market.

Materials and Assembly
The construction of the Ugreen Multiport USB-C Adapter feels as durable as any other big-ticket adapter. It is made of aluminum and black plastic for the cable. The device comes in only one color, gray, which pretty closely matches the Space Gray of Apple, but still slightly darker.
On the opposite side of the USB-C to Connect to MacBook cable, you'll find a Gigabit Ethernet port and a USB-C PD. On one side of the row are HDMI and three USB 3.0 ports, and on the opposite side are SD and Micro SD slots, as well as an LED indicator.

Just like other Ugreen products we've tested before, this USB-C multiport adapter works well and looks great.
You can use all I / O at the same time, it offers the advantage of taking up only one USB-C port on your MacBook / MacBook Pro, and it has good construction and materials.
For 15-inch MacBook Pros, you can always choose a different port in order not to slow down the charging speed of the PC batteries.
A few things that would make it even better this product are full support for 85W of power to charge 15-inch MacBook Pros at full speed and 4K video output at 60Hz, although not many adapters offer this right now. .
Interestingly, when testing the 15-inch MacBook Pro, it charged from 15% battery to full scale, in just two hours. Also tested with a standard 87W USB-C power adapter Apple. When we measured the power supply with a power meter, we found that it was typically providing about 50W from its own power adapter Apple. So the 60W max power on the Ugreen USB-C adapter is not a big deal.
Ugreen is a great solution for your MacBook.
With the company's wide range of connectivity options, including HDMI and Ethernet, Ugreen's $ 52 Multiport USB-C Adapter can be the most useful device when it comes to expanding your ports MacBook. Well, in general, it only remains to hope that the adapter industry will soon be filled with worthy solutions and equipment manufacturers will switch to USB-C, because Apple has set the bar and is certainly not going to give up and take a step back.
