Where to buy





Multiport USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 hub AXAGON HMC-6M2 COMBO 6in1 expands your laptop, computer or phone with four ports and external box for M.2 disk.

You can easily and quickly connect up to two USB devices, Gigabit Ethernet network, HDMI display and SATA M.2 SSD disk to your computer at the same time via the double-sided USB-C connector. You also get the possibility to supply laptop using Power Delivery technology at the same time. The USB-C hub will provide you with a simple and compact 6in1 docking station for notebook like MacBook Pro.

The USB hub offers two USB outputs with standard USB-A connectors. The hub can also handle permanent connection of two external drives simultaneously. Transfer rate up to 5Gb/s thanks to the fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface.

USB-C connector is dedicated to power up a laptop or mobile phone using Power Delivery 3.0 technology by power up to 100W. Connect the USB-C Power Delivery charger to the hub and connect the hub to the laptop. This saves one USB-C port. The condition is a laptop with Power Delivery charging support from the USB-C port and a suitable PD charger.

HDMI output provides high quality image up to 4K/30Hz Ultra HD resolution and supports multi-channel audio transmission. DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode) enabled USB-C port or Thunderbolt 3 port is necessary for the proper function of video output.

Gigabit network card extends your computer by a fast network connection, adds the missing RJ-45 network connector or another network card. LAN adapter is compatible with 10/100/1000 Mbit/s speeds and also offers a wide range of functions for example IPv4/IPv6, crossover detection and auto-correction, Wake-on-LAN, VLAN support or advanced Power Management features.

You can connect a SATA M.2 SSD drive thanks to the built-in slot on the back. The multiport hub thus becomes an external drive. M.2 cards can be single-sided or double-sided up to a size of 22x80 mm. The external M.2 box has no capacity limitations for SSDs and supports modern functions such as TRIM.

Elegant aluminum body ensures mechanical resistance and quality cooling. The finely structured surface with no fingerprint remains will also please you. Port replicator is an ideal accessory for laptops without USB-A connectors, network card and video output. Fixed 18 cm long USB-C cable.

You can use your current USB peripherals without having to purchase new ones. Thanks to the Plug and Play and Hot Plug functions, the connection of the hub is very simple without complicated installation. It is also possible to easily connect and disconnect peripherals while the computer is running. The hub does not afraid of connection to phones with a USB-C connector - for example, you can connect a flash drive, keyboard, mouse, display, TV or projector to the phone.

FAQ

A): If the network card is not displayed in "Device Manager", a USB port (or a PCIe slot in the event of an internal network card) may be malfunctioning.

B): Try plugging the network card into another USB port (or another PCIe slot on the PC motherboard in the event of an internal network card, or temporarily disconnect all other PCIe cards). The network card should be detected and you should be prompted to install the drivers. If the problem persists, plug the network card into the USB port (PCIe slot) of another computer to verify its functionality.

A): By initializing the disk, you can set the mode in which the hard disk will work.

B): You can use the partition with the master boot record (MBR) or the GUID partition table (GPT). For disk up to 2TB, use the MBR option, we recommend selecting GPT on a larger disk than 2TB. Subsequently, the initialized disk should be formatted.

A): If this happens, it means that the Windows operating system did not assign a drive letter to the new storage device.

B): If the drive letter is not assigned, open "Disk Management", right-click on the desired drive and manually assign the drive letter. If the drive letter can not be assigned to the disk, it is possible that the disk is formatted as "dynamic". If you want to keep disk data, connect it to the original device and make a backup of the disk. Then convert it to a normal disk, initialize it to MBR (or GPT, see other points), and then perform Low Level Format (e.g. using the Low Level Format Tool)

A): The newly purchased disk must be initialized before first use.

B): If the new disk is not initialized automatically, open "Disk Management", right-click on the desired disk and initialize it.
