" ...  The shipping of the replacement was timely and guess what, the second hub worked flawlessly. ... Just to be sure this time, I ran it with the same monoprice usb charger and cable and played smash bros with my roommate for about an hour and a half with the hub. ... Based on other reviews, I connected this to my Nintendo Switch hoping it would be a good portable hub.  ...  "

" ...  I plugged it in at home to test it using the original HDMI and Nintendo Switch power adapter. ... The light glows like it's getting power but the HDMI portion doesn't seem to do anything. ... The HDMI switch and power adapter work fine with the switch dock so it's definitely this adapter.  ...  "

" ...  I bought one for a second dock for a Nintendo Switch, tested it on my Thinkpad running Windows 10, and it worked right out the box for both - I don't think the Lenovo even needed to update the drivers.  ...  "

" ...  DR It works well with my Switch/GC adapter. ... I had to buy a new portable Switch adapter after the last one broke after only 6 months of relatively little use. ... Out of the box, this worked perfectly with my Switch setup which includes a gamecube adapter for smash. ... I definitely like the longer cable though, as it allows the adapter better positioning without stressing the connection. ... So far, I'm liking this adapter much better and I think it's well worth the extra $5-10 compared to other brands.  ...  "

" ...  I decided to go for the 5-in-1 instead of the 4-in-1 because it allows me to access several types of media (SD, micro-SD, and USB3 without any other adapters, which is something that I value. ... I see us eventually getting to the point where our phones become the only computer we need. ... The sound played clearly and in-sync with the video using headphones connected to my phone, the speakers in the monitor, and a Bluetooth speaker (which I already knew didn't have a delay in sound).  ...  "
