Club 3D News 08 – PlayStation® / CeBIT / Rakuten / Reviews
Club 3D´s connectivity products are the solution for many demands that professional or enthusiast users have. But when thinking of the usage of those products a lot of people only relate them to either PC or Notebooks. In fact the field of usage is much wider.
In January 2016 Club 3D has introduced the Premium High Speed HDMITM 2.0 4K60Hz UHD cable 3m/9.8ft (Item code: CAC-1310). At that time the product was one of the first cables to get the Premium Certification for 4K60Hz from the HDMITM Organisation and due to its extremly good quality the product became one of the top selling products for Club 3D in 2016.
Apart from using this cable with a PC or Notebook it is the perfect fit for using it with Sony´s latest PlayStation 4 Pro. The PS 4 Pro offers a 4K HDMI output as an additional feature to previous generations. Club 3D´s CAC-1310 ensures the user to have the best 4K UHD Gameplay on his/her 4K60Hz UHD capable monitor or TV out of his PlayStation 4 games.

Club 3D USB Type C to DisplayPort 1.2 + USB 3.0 + Type C Charging Mini Dock (CSV-1537) in the Media
In November 2015 Club 3D started with the first USB-Type-C products. Continously the portfolio was widened and the latest addition is the above mentioned Mini Dock which allows users to connect displays with up to 4K60Hz.
While a lot of users had to face quality issues with their Type-C products in 2016 the feedback that Club 3D received from users and media was extremly positive. Issues that users reported via Support or in our online forum “Insights” were mostly caused by OS updates and not by the Club 3D products.
The latest Mini Dock was now checked by 2 magazines from Heise Medien (Germany). In Mac & i 1/2017 the CSV-1537 was introduced to the audience and described as an alternative to Apple`s USB-C-Digital-AV-Multiport-Adapter.

With the switch a change to USB 3.0 speed can be done as well when needed.“
Magazine c´t made a round up of 12 of those multi-adapters in their issue number 4. The extensive roundup handles Type-C technology in general as well as plus and minus of the tested products. In the end the editor comes to the conclusion that 2 of the tested products are outstanding in this roundup. The Club 3D-product CSV-1537 as one of the those two is summarized with “The ability to drive a 4K-display with 60Hz make the Club 3D Mini Dock interesting for special purposes.”
