Hello! I have a few questions about the USBC-6950U, which I’m thinking of buying for use with a 2020 m1 macbook pro, to allow me 2 (or is that 3?) external displays!
Can I use it with my existing hub? As the macbook is very short of output ports, rather than plug the USBC-6950U directly into one of the macbook’s only two usb-c sockets, I’d like to run it from a usb-c socket on a hub I already use - specifically, this Anker Power Expand+ 7 hub (https://www.anker.com/products/variant/usb-c-hub,-7in1-usb-c-adapter/A83460A1)
Is that likely to work, or must the USBC-6950U be connected directly to the macbook?
Am I right in thinking both of the USBC-6950U’s outputs are driven by displaylink? And if so, does that mean that I can potentially drive a third external screen with a separate direct non-displaylink HDMI (“alt mode”?) output (e.g. via my aforementioned hub as I currently do)?
I think I’d happily settle for 1080p@30hz if I can get three external displays out of this setup. (The USBC-6950U seems like good future-proofing for when I eventually invest in a couple of 4k screens)
- Can you give me any idea of likely time of UK/Europe availability of UD-3900PDZ or UD-ULTC4K? They’re both unavailable here currently (hence me contemplating the USBC-6950U).
Thank you very much for any info!
p.s. The support on this site is great - it’s been useful to me already in researching and has given me confidence around Plugable support and community - thanks all!
