What usb-c hubs are supported and recommended for the M1 Mac Minis; especially for connecting an Eizo monitor?

Questioner General

the usb-c hub from Apple: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MUF82AM/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter



doesn’t claim to support 4K/60hz monitors on the Mac Mini according to this site but it seems

dated. Is there up-to-date info (as of March 20201) about what will work?



thanks

I see your point, good point. To me it looks like it’s not supported. The only way to find out is to buy, test & return if it doesn’t. Waiting for a spec update isn’t realistic IMO.

It is not a Hub with extra ports, but the Insignia USB-C to HDMI adapter I have supports 4K 60Hz.

Insignia also sells a USB-C to HDMI, USB-C, USB 3.0 adapter similar to Apple's, that supports 4k 60Hz.

“3840x2160 at 60Hz on:

iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation and later), MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019), MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017 and later), MacBook Pro (13-inch, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, 2020), MacBook Air (2020), iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017 and later), iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 and later), and iMacPro (2018)”



mac mini is not mentioned here, it is mentioned as a 2018 version as working with UHD screen only at that resolution at 30hz only.



what are you referring to with this?

Thanks for the suggestions. Even Apple’s version (link up top) is not believed or presumed to work with the Mac Mini M1 without testing, which I can’t find. Do you believe these will work? I know that I can ‘buy adapters, try them, and return them’, but I’m asking this first for two reasons - 1. I don’t want to buy try and a return and 2. A certain adapter might work but not give 60 hz, or flicker, or might not actually display the resolution or bit depth it is supposed to and It’s theoretically possible I’ll miss it.

You're welcome.



I took a chance on the Insignia USB-C to HDMI adapter and it works fine for me.



Sorry but the only real solution here, is to buy and try.



Same thing applies to the USB-C to DisplayPort cable discussed in your other thread.
