Plugable USB 3.0 Docking Station

This device is so easy to setup and has so many different uses. My number one use was for the USB 3.0 ports for my laptop and netbook. 

The USB 3.0 Dock Station has a lot of features to it. It contains a Video Output that can perform a wide range of resolutions, (2048X1152 MAX!) and you can use a DVI to HDMI adapter. It also has a Gigabit Ethernet port for a hard wired connection, and increasing network speed for any data transfers. The USB 3.0 Docking station also houses (of course) USB 3.0 ports for connecting multiple devices, and it also has the option for audio.

Is there anything this device can't do? I am not aware, as it was a blast being able to be "Docked" to my laptop, and still have everything at my fingertips with such a small device next to me. I connected my printer, hardwired network connection, and an external hard drive. 

The USB 3.0 proves to be excellent and fast. I was able to access my external HDD so quickly while having it connected to the dock. I was able to have that gigabit ethernet hard wired connection for transferring and contacting the network. I usually use wireless, but while I am at home I always prefer hard wired. This made the Dock invaluable to me. I can have twice as many USB options with this Dock than I can with what is given on my laptop. 

The Docking Station also has a very nice touch sensitive power button, and it makes the device look very slick. It requires a wall outlet to be powered, but I would be willing to give that wall socket up, because of what you can accomplish with it. 

You have a choice to give yourself an extra display as well. If you have an extra monitor and the display is better than that old LCD laptop of yours, then use it. I didn't use it much, but I tested to make sure it works, and it does...Flawlessly 

I don't have any discrepancies with this unit, and everything advertised worked perfectly. I love this device for when I am at home or in the office or even at the hotel room before that big business meeting.
