Poor Man's Docking Station - USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-A Cable
I Hooked the USB-C end of the cable to my new Hub Monitor then connected the other end (USB-A) to my Desktop along with a DisplayPort Cable from the monitor to the desktop. I have my ethernet cable, audio cable, mouse, and keyboard all connected to the Hub Monitor and everything works perfectly! Reason for this configuration is to share the monitor with my laptop using the USB-C port. I just simply disconnect the desktop USB-C end from the monitor, plug my laptop in and wah-lah! Thanks Monoprice!
I had to look long and hard to find a 6 ft, gold plated one with a heavy-duty jacket. Everything is braided now days, which I don't like. And to top it off, it was a great price. Thank you so much Monoprice ??
This is a heavy cable not very flexible, but not terrible, I've seen worse.
The plastic around the C end of the cable is pretty big and not going to fit through a phone case unless its a pretty big opening. I have a pixel 2 and the supplied fast charge cable fits fine through the case but not this cable, had to cut out the opening in my phone case so it would fit. No reason for it to be that bulky kinda crappy design. But overall the cable seems to be good quality. Just got it today, but it charges my phone so.
