Sick of plugging in your laptop?
Up until today every time I come back to my office I have set up my laptop on its stand then plug in:
- USB Mouse
- Other USB (out to printers and keyboard)
- Other monitor
- Network cable
- 3 x 3.5mm sound connectors for speakers
That's 9 plugs in total, a fairly painful/time consuming and a lot of wear and tear on my laptop plugs especially as I could go through that procedure 20 times in a day.
I have purchased a generic USB 3.0 docking station now I have to plug only two plus #1: Power, #2: a single USB cable, that's it!
That one USB cable achieves all the connectivity above and also allows for three screens (two external and the laptop screen) and 5.1 surround sound. Below are the details, for around $200 this is highly recommended (based on my experience so far) if you have a USB 3.0 laptop.
