Need at least 3.0 for many use cases nowadays.

2.0 is still good for printers and scanners.

USB-A connectors are becoming scare or non-existant on some laptops, would be nice if it had a USB-C connector on the hub as an upstream port - that way you could use it to give any USB-C only laptop USB-A ports, or use a USB-A to USB-C cable to use it on any other machine. A cheap USB-C dock would be a better option all around though.

This is decent for those that want to attach wired peripherals and printers.

Your point is generally well made in that you can go back and forth, so USB-C to a USB-A hub would be quite useful.

The slimmest ultrabooks may be USB-C only, but USB-A is still everywhere and far and away more popular outside of phones.

There is no USB 4.0 Type A variant, so the USB standard is phasing out Type A for the fastest throughput devices.

Type A will remain with us through the 2030s, given it's ubiquity, and may even be revived as a legacy standard in USB 5.0 if there's a groundswell of support. Type A has proven very reliable and robust over the years, and Type C, while better in many ways, is more subject to a sideways or up and down shearing force due to it's smaller construction.

Windows 12 - it's compatible with products from the future!

USB 2.0 - it only supports products from the past!

Hmmm

Does it work for the Nintendo Switch to add Ethernet?

Sorry, I couldn't tell you.
I don't own this and never even heard of the brand before. I just came across it while looking at cheap USB hubs and then I saw this thread. So figured I'd mention it.

The Prime Cables USB 3.0 hub with the micro USB power option was a better deal, bought it for $9 and FS earlier this year.

Unpowered 2.0 hubs are a dime a dozen, bought one for $3 from AliExpress a while back.

The amazon prime one works if you are looking for a usb to Ethernet on the switch. Used it for a few years on the old switch and it also works on oled switch.

I got their USB 3.0 hub for $7 a while back and all of my wireless receivers only worked intermittently with it. I can't say that for all of Sabrents hubs of course, just throwing it out there. They seem cheaply made.
