Anker USB-C to 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub With Ethernet Adapter

I was looking for a USB-C Ethernet adapter and came across the Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter which retails for S$49 in Apple Stores and Anker USB-C Aluminum Portable Gigabit Ethernet Port Network Adapter which retails for US$22.99 (S$32) on Amazon.

I find that the Belkin Ethernet adapter is overpriced and if you want to get the Anker Ethernet adapter, you might as well top up a little more to get the Anker USB-C to 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Ethernet Adapter.
