PR: Essential Dock Press Release

Lockbourne, OH - December 7, 2015 - , a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of a new family of docking stations, adding to the diverse line of docking stations that StarTech.com offers. The new Essential family of docking stations is created with hot-desking, home-office and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) office environments in mind.

Each of the docks is uniquely designed to deliver everything the average office worker needs in order to connect their essential devices and work productively. The docks feature a compact footprint that makes it easy for users to turn their laptop into a fully functional workstation, even in locations where space requirements are at a premium and device connections required are not as extensive.

The new Essential family of docking stations include three SKUs with different display options, the SKUS are: USB3VDOCK4DP (4K DisplayPort), USB3VDOCKD (DVI), and USB3VDOCKH (HDMI).
