Set up a permanent or hoteling (hot desking) workstation where fewer peripheral and device ports are needed, and in an area where desk space is limited
Product ID: USB3VDOCKD
- Add essential ports to your laptop and create a permanent, single-video workstation, or a short-term (hotel or hot desk) workspace
- Easily add the dock to your office or any environment with space constraints, with a compact, small-footprint housing that offers simpler device port connectivity
- A cost-effective way to add ports to your laptop, such as DVI, USB fast-charge, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and a headset jack
This DVI 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 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 DVI 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 DVI 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.
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.
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 USB3VDOCKD is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
