Introduction
The USB 3.0 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.
