I'm looking to purchase a powered USB 3 hub so I can drive a USB-powered monitor (requires USB 3 powered) with my Surface Pro 4, while retaining USB input for keyboard, mice etc.

 

I've had a look online and can't find any NZ suppliers - can anyone point me to one?

 

Is a business purchase - looking for a local supplier, not Amazon product.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

ps. Memo to Microsoft. More than one USB port in the SP4 would have been really useful. Other manufacturers manage to squeeze more than one USB port into similar sized kit!

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Bought one of these a few months ago off trademe (paid $40.00)

Works well although the usb plugs are a tad loose. Not sure you can still get them,

 

Has the benefit of ethernet although I never used this. Used with my SP2 then my SP3.

Nicegear.co.nz has several options. Hadley is great to deal with.

There's not enough room. We could make Surface Pro thicker or have just 1 USB B port

What would you do? :)

Fair call (-; But in next iteration, a USB C in addition would assist - like Dell and Lenovo have recently introduced in similar sized kit.
