IQ USB 3 on Optical tether, USB C

Hello all, I have IQ180, use USB 3 with Corning Optical Fiber cable.

Old PCs were USB 2 or 3.


Latest ASUS ZenBook, and many others have only USB C.

Any issues or recommendations of hubs or issues to use a USB C to USB 3 dongle or hub to the IQ180?

Anyone else use the Corning Optical Fiber USB cables?

Many Thanks!


Jon

OWC makes a great USB-C hub. But most adapters will probably work OK if you are using a USB-3 connection.

For optical cables I prefer the Unibrain model as it comes with a separately powered USB repeater. We have found the Corning cable to be a bit unreliable as it is often bus powered.
