Lockbourne, OH - October 2018 - StarTech.com adds to its growing docking station line with the release of a new, easy install, dual 4K 60Hz Thunderbolt™ 3 docking station (North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan SKU:TB3DK2DHV, UK/EU/Chile SKU:TB3DK2DHVUE). This new dock is one of the most user-friendly Thunderbolt™ 3 docking stations on the market, offering the flexibility of dedicated dual monitor display with four different video output options, plus the simplicity of plug-and-play. It also eliminates frustrations of purchasing extra adapters and time-consuming driver installations.
This new dock provides up to 40Gbps bandwidth, dual 4k 60Hz monitor resolution and 85W power delivery to keep Mac or Windows laptops charged. In addition, the versatility of the video output options supporting DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA, ensure users can connect to the port they need without having to worry about extra adapters. The inclusion of a VGA port distinguishes this dock from others on the market and allows users to easily connect a legacy monitor to today’s cutting-edge laptops.

This docking station’s unique features make it perfect for creative professionals working with uncompressed, high-bandwidth and graphically intensive images, video, and CAD drawings. The Thunderbolt™ 3 technology will allow users to work with resource-demanding applications on two displays without draining system resources. The flexibility of the video output options allows users to configure a dual 4K, single 4K or standard dual monitor workstation, depending on their needs.
“When we created this docking station we really wanted to focus on the user experience,” explains Nirav Gandhi, Vice President of Product Development at StarTech.com. “To do this, we started with designing the dock with the Thunderbolt™ 3 port at the front and including video output options that were flexible and offered versatility for the user. The inclusion of a VGA port was important because we wanted to ensure users had access to all their older monitors and displays. Beyond compatibility, we also wanted to enhance the user experience by making the out-of-box experience as simple as possible. This docking station is plug-and-play, which allows users to simply connect to their laptop and immediately get to work. Every decision made when designing this docking station had the user and how to enhance their experience in-mind.”
