Ugreen HDMI 2.1 Cable

I have various HDMI cables from multiple gadgets, and I don’t even know what HDMI version they support. So I decided to standardize and future-proof all my HDMI cables at home to make them more uniform.

I opted for HDMI 2.1 because it supports all the latest standards, 8K@60 resolution, 48 Gbps bandwidth, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), etc.

Ugreen USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

After my company changed my MacBook Pro to the new 16″ M1 Pro MacBook Pro, I can no longer use my Razer Core X Chroma since Apple M1 chips don’t support eGPU. Besides using my Razer Core X Chroma as my eGPU, I also use it as a 4-port USB-A Hub.

So I needed a 4-port USB-C to USB-A Hub. My usual first place to search is Ugreen shop on Lazada. I use their cables, chargers, and USB-C hubs, and their peripherals haven’t disappointed me yet.

Plugable DisplayLink 4K DisplayPort and HDMI Dual Monitor Adapter

There are two variants of the Plugable DisplayLink 4K DisplayPort and HDMI Dual Monitor Adapter. One with 1Gbps Ethernet Port (USBC-6950UE) and one without (USBC-6950U).

My guess is the one without an Ethernet port should be cheaper, but sadly I can’t find it on Amazon.sg. I only found the one with an Ethernet port on Amazon.sg retailing for S$139. After a 5% discount voucher, I got it for S$132.05.

Keychron Coiled Aviator Cable

I think Keychron K7‘s battery life is bad. Using it for about 8 hours a day, it could not even last through a 5-day work week on a single charge.

I disabled the auto-sleep mode because, for some reason, when the keyboard wakes up from sleep, it refuses to connect back to my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth.

Ugreen USB-C to USB-A Adapter

Bought the Ugreen USB-C to USB-A Adapter from Lazada during their 8/8 sale for S$3.99 with free shipping to Singapore. Their usual retail price is S$5.39.

This is a USB 3.1 Gen 1 On-The-Go (OTG) USB-C to USB-A adapter, and hence it supports any phones, tablets, and laptops with a USB-C port.
