Fujitsu and Lenovo unveil DisplayPort-based USB 3.0 port replicators

| Peripherals News | Posted: May 9, 2012 4:01 am

With Ultrabooks slimming down not just in size and weight, but also port options, port replicators are going to be the new in-thing. Fujitsu and Lenovo have both unveiled two new DisplayLink-based USB 3.0 replicators, and first we'll tackle the Fujitsu model. Both models sport DisplayLink's USB 3.0 chipset, the DL-3900, which offers dual display connectivity.

Fujitsu's USB 3.0 Port Replicator PR08 has some great features, where they've added DisplayPort connectivity which means you can throw a 2560x1600 display on it, without an issue. The port replicator also features a DVI-I port that can be used with an adapter to give D-sub support. Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports (not at full speed, obviously), and audio jacks for 2.1- and 5.1-channel audio.

Lenovo steps in with their ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock which sports two DVI ports, five USB 3.0 ports (again, not at full speed), Gigabit Ethernet and audio ports. Lenovo's product has an MSRP of US$179.99 and should hit on May 15, where Fujitsu kindly left out pricing and availability information.
