I wanted to like this item, it looks so nice, materials, good quality...however I just can't recommend it. After spending more than an hour trying to get the hdmi to work by using multiple devices (2 phones, lenovo yoga laptop, samsung tablet) and two hdmi cables, I eventually gave up after the laptops display went haywire every time I'd connect it. Laptop via hdmi to tv was fine, laptop to this usb c hub and yeah, nothing but glitchy noises and black screen. Maybe I was just the unlucky one to get a faulty unit out of the box. Pity.
