I’ve generally been quite happy with my Aukey CB-C58 USB-C Hub. However, about a week ago it seems the device doesn’t work consistently with my external monitor. The HDMI cable seems loose and so my external monitor displays screens with odd colour breaks and is constantly jerky as if the pins are not lining up.
I’ve tested the monitor directly into another laptop (monitor HDMI direct into laptop HDMI port), and for hours there was no problem. I’ve also tested my USB-C only laptop with other screens (my TV) and it too is fine. So I’ve narrowed it down to the Aukey CM-C58 USB-C hub that has a problem. It’s getting worse in that just a minor touch, hold, or light squeeze can mean my entire external monitor disconnects then reconnects in less than a second.
Faulty device? Or is the quality of product so poor that it doesn’t last more than a year…?
