J5Create Part 1: JDA159 Mini DisplayPort to 4K HDMI Adapter and JUC500 USB 3.0 Wormhole Switch

It has been a good long while since I have reviewed a decent J5Create product, and I am not certain how to describe what it is that they make. Generally, their products are accessories for your computer designed to link one thing to another, and these first two products are a demonstration of that.

J5Create JDA159 Mini DisplayPort to 4K HDMI Adapter

The JDA159 is a Mini DisplayPort to 4K HDMI adapter that is made to connect your Mac or PC to to a 4K HDTV or some other device that can use an HDMI port. It is compliant with both DisplayPort 1.2 and Thunderbolt 2, as well as compliant with HDMI 1.4 specifications. Oh, while we are talking about specs, it supports resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD (4096 x 2160, 30Hz) and 3D video formats over HDMI.

The best part is how easy it is to install. It is a true plug-and-play technology, and all that is required is plugging the JDA159 Mini DisplayPort to the computer, then plug the existing HDMI cable from your display into the Mini DisplayPort adapter. It can’t get any simpler than that, seriously.

You should be able to purchase the JDA159 Mini DisplayPort to 4K HDMI Adapter on the J5Create site for $39.99.

JUC500 USB 3.0 Wormhole Switch

The JUC500 is essentially a double-duty USB 3.0 cable that allows you to do all kinds of things between two computers, even if one is a Mac and the other is a PC. Oh yeah, this is all about compatibility here, with new drivers to download.

What is really interesting is you can link two computers, and you can use a keyboard or mouse on either on the other computers. Does that make sense? I hope so. Perhaps it is better to say how you can drag and drop files from one computer to the other.

So if you have some file that you want to transfer to another computer, just select it, and then drag and drop it over. You should be okay for all types of file transfers, and it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

You should be able to purchase the JUC500 USB 3.0 Wormhole Switch on the J5Create site for $59.99.
