Hi all
I've just purchased a Zenbook UX430, according to their website it comes with a 3.1 USBC port. What I am looking for is a hub that has a full sized HDMI output and 3 X USB (only one needs to be 3.0) what affordable options are there for me to look at?
Thanks

Asus have an official list. I'd stick to something from there:

We buy these at work for a mixture of SurfaceBooks, X1 Carbons & MacBooks. No issues with them: https://www.amazon.com/Anker-1-Gigabit-Ethernet-Compatible-ChromeBook/dp/B071G83L1J/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1525980641&sr=8-3&keywords=anker+usb+c+hub I think there is a cheaper version if you don't require ethernet. 

 

There is also another slightly more expensive version that has USB C passthrough for charging.

If you can handle only two USB ports, I sell this one on my online store. Use the code Geekzone for 15% off, too.

In case anyone comes on to this thread. My computer actually came with two dongles from the box; one USBC to HDMI and a USBC to Network (I assume 100/100) 

 

I looked on Aliexpress and found the below linked adapter; HDMI and 3 x USB3 ports along with a usbc as well. Plugging it in everything worked flawlessly out of the box and it cost me like $40 bucks shipped. Feels like a really nice bit of kit as its made out of aluminium.
