Introduction
The Shintaro Blazer Docking Station is a unique design for a computer that has extra
connectivity demands. Through the docking station, you can extend the connection of a
computer to more USB peripherals, Ethernet network, speaker and microphone using
only one USB port on your computer.
This docking station is built-in USB 3.0 ports which mean you can enjoy the super speed
data transmission between USB peripherals. Besides, this product is fully compliant with
the USB 1.1/2.0 specification. Your previous USB 1.1/2.0 devices can continue to function
as usually.
The video output is another feature. With the DVI (and HDMI® Dual Head Docking
Station model only) port(s), you can connect more monitor, LCD or projector. The
connected monitor can be configured to either mirror your primary screen, or extend
the Window desktop allowing visibility of more applications at the same time. No more
stacking windows within the confines of a single display.
As to the housing, aside from the impressive sailboat-like appearance, the upright
design of the body helps to spare your desktop space. Most peripherals are connected
behind while two USB ports and audio outputs are implemented on the front panel for
easier accessibility. An industry standard security lock is also provided for anti-theft
purpose.
Enhanced expansion capability plus the stylish appearance, surely this docking station
with video is the most versatile accessory that also complements your home or office
space.
