    Can people help provide background, latest products, recommendations, etc?

    Device limitation is USB-C @ 5Gbps throughput, of course.

    Is this SSD-class speed? Or spinning HDD still?

    Currently, I have the Kingston Nucleum USB-C hub. When working at home, I tend to have a 1080p HDMI monitor and USB-PD plugged in to it. Would this likely impact the real-life throughput / contention / etc?

    I am just trying to "max out" the usability and devices I can attach of the MacBook.

    You may find this article interesting: https://www.pcworld.com/article/305...ow-your-laptops-usb-type-c-port-could-be.html

    If you want speed, you'll definitely want SSD rather than HDD.

    Big fan of Samsung T5. My vote is for that one.
