'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Adonit Nest 7-in-1 Hub

With remote and hybrid working options now so firmly entrenched in the workplace that job vacancy postings often mention what is on offer, many of us have converted unused spaces into home offices to cater to work demands. 

Beyond a PC, laptop, smartphone, and potentially a camera, however, a huge variety of accessories is on the market that can make your setup more productive and efficient. 

The Adonit Nest 7-in-1 Hub, which offers a range of connectivity ports through one USB point, is one such gadget -- and is currently on sale. Normally retailing for $80, Adonit is offering 19% off during the holiday sales, bringing the cost down to $65. 

Working from home, you may have to deal with different PC systems, monitors, portable storage devices, and peripherals. This can create a mess of wires and confusion on your desk, but investing in a hub can reduce clutter and make your workflow less complicated.

The Adonit Nest 7-in-1 Hub, a 7-in-1 USB connectivity point, is one such device. The hub connects to your PC or laptop via a USB C port and turns this port into seven different connectivity points. 

The hub offers two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI connector, an Ethernet port, an SD card reader, a microSD card slot, and one USB-C charging port. The HDMI connector has a resolution output of up to 4K at 60Hz.

The discount is applied at checkout.
