Posted by Aaron Howe on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 8:00am
These days USB truly has become universal. With the ability to connect keyboards, mice, scanners, printers, displays, network adapters, and even multiport devices such as this. One problem for power users these days is a lack of ports on a standard laptop. Either there won’t be Ethernet, a card reader, multiple USB 3.0 ports, or low external display support; this accessory is designed to help alleviate that exact problem.
The dual video docking station has slots for an HDMI and DVI video, headphone, microphone, ethernet, five USB 3.0 ports, and an SD/MicroSD card reader. With the USB 3.0 port taken up on a laptop, it’s nice to see that they added so many more ports for people who want to add a printer, keyboard, mouse, and possibly even a webcam, or other peripheral.
