Production information at the back.
Pioneer DKMT01 supports both VGA (up to 2048×1152) and HDMI (up to 3840×2160 @ 30Hz). And it working flawlessly on my MINIX NEO N42C-4 Mini PC and Samsung Galaxy Note8. But do take note that it only allow one video output at the same time. No dual display love here. Support most OS like Windows, Mac and Android for sure. Great for display contents to TV, monitor and even projector for business presentation.
As for USB 3.1 port, above is the benchmark result from CrystalDiskMark. Maximum USB 3.0 transfer rate from Pioneer external SSD. USB-A port can be used to charge your mobile devices too. And below is the Gigabit Ethernet performance based on iPerf3 test with ASUS RT-AC86U Wi-Fi Router. Getting 900Mbit/s which is great for fast file download and upload. Surely faster than wireless connection and speed up the whole file transferring process.
