Overview

This HDMI® docking station for laptops offers a cost-effective way to create a simpler but highly functional workstation that can be used in permanent workspaces, or by multiple people in guest or hoteling (hot desk) environments.

If you don’t need all the connections and features of a traditional laptop docking station, you can use this dock to add the most essential connections (such as an extra display) to your laptop.

Now you or your colleagues can be more productive and create an efficient and comfortable workspace, even in an area with minimal desk space.

Essential connections that are ideal for simple workstations

This laptop dock features basic device connections that are integrated into a small foot-print housing. Now you can create a permanent or a hoteling (hot desking) workstation in a location with limited space. The dock offers an efficient solution for adding an extra display, a Gigabit network connection, and multiple USB devices without having to connect several individual adapters. And, with hotel desks or hot desks, laptop users aren’t tied to one specific workstation, so they can come and go easily.

The HDMI dock offers simpler connectivity, so you can save money by avoiding a docking station that has connections you might never use. It’s perfect for anyone who needs to expand their connectivity in virtually any environment or application.

It’s a cost-effective docking station that still provides all the fundamental ports of a full-size workstation, such as an HDMI output, and when paired with your laptop display, you can easily set up dual monitors.

Compact design maximizes your available space

If you’re running out of physical workspace, this USB 3.0 (also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 - 5Gbps) docking station can help. Its compact design occupies minimal surface area, so you can integrate it into smaller areas than traditional docking stations or desktop computers would require.

By maximizing your available space, the compact dock can help eliminate the added cost and hassle of purchasing more offices, cubicles, or desks.

With fewer ports integrated into a small foot-print housing, the dock is a perfect fit for short-term work areas (hot desks). It’s ideal for mass deployment in business, classroom, computer lab, and government settings. Plus, it integrates nicely into home-office or office hoteling workspaces that have limited space.

The HDMI docking station is about the size of one's hand, the image highlights the dock's compact and palm-sized design

Always-on fast-charge port makes charging easier

You can avoid the aggravation of a dead battery and make sure your mobile device is always ready to go, using the dock’s USB fast-charge and sync port. Plus, the always-on USB port supports device charging even when your laptop isn’t connected to the dock.

When you’re in a hurry, the easily accessible USB port charges your smartphone or tablet faster than traditional USB ports. This front-panel port ensures your mobile device is always within arm’s reach, so you can simultaneously get your work done while enjoying convenient device charging at your workstation.

Universally supported

Unlike some proprietary docking stations designed only to work with specific laptop models, this universal laptop dock works with multiple brands. All you need is your laptop’s USB 3.0 port and you can be up and running quickly. With universal support, you can use this dock with different laptops now, or in the future.

The USB3VDOCKH is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Create a hoteling, guest workstation (hot desk) for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) users, or for CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) applications where companies offer a selection of laptops that can be used at one workstation

Save money by using a dock with only the ports you need, or by deploying just one universal laptop docking station for several employees or guests

Works with most USB 3.0 equipped laptops, such as your Ultrabook™, Microsoft® Surface™ Pro, Surface Book, Surface 3, Lenovo® Yoga, MacBook, and many Windows based tablets

Create a single-video workstation that’s ideal for small or home offices, as well as small, medium, and large businesses

(1 star) Susceptible to static electricity

By:
I've had this product for about a year and time to time the monitor connected to the docking station would just go blue and Windows showed an error with the USB device. Disconnecting the power and USB connection to computer of the dock and reconnecting them would correct this issue. I just couldn't figure out what was wrong and couldn't claim guarantee because I already sent back one unit with the same issue and it would get back to working normally after re-connection. This weekend when it was happening quite often I finally figured out that it was because I was wearing a woolen jersey as well as woolen socks which on a carpet made me more statistic charged than usual. I'm more disappointed now because this is something that should have been taken care of in the design. The three other external USB devices (sound card and two portable hard drives), have no such issue and they sit right next to this dock.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're going to investigate this concern and we'll be sure to reply once we have completed some additional testing. We thank you in advance for your patience. UPDATE: We looked into this situation and found the docking station needed a significant static discharge in order to be affected. In most environments, the docking station will work without issue. Unfortunately it's difficult to ensure the dock is completely immune to static electricity. We appreciate your feedback on the product. Feel free to contact us directly and we would be happy to look into other solutions with you.
