What's Hot

 

The structure: It's very solid with a firm connection to the base. I see no issues if it's accidentally knocked off your desk a few times during set-up.

The connections: Four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet, audio jacks, DVI and HDMI ensure that basically any set-up you have will be fully functional operational thanks to this product.

 

Fast charging: With one of the USB 3.0 ports on the front face supporting fast charging, you can fill your phone or tablet battery up to three times faster than a general USB port on your PC.

 

The design: With the messy cables kept to the back and quick-access ports at the front, your desk will be neater and more easily organized because of it.

 

What's Not

 

It's a balancing act: Filling up the rear panel with cables will see the base a little light on its feet - if your desk isn't sturdy or you're likely to bump the device, expect it to possibly crash onto your floor.

Final Thoughts

 

This docking station comes with basically anything you could wish, dream or hope for. The only real setback is the fact that it's a little light on its feet when loaded up. Complete with a decent price tag, a plethora of connection options, fast charging, easy to install drivers, and a simple connection procedure, it's hard to beat.

At first installing the drivers is quite daunting and may seem difficult, however, you'll find that this product is very easy to use in the long-run. All it requires is a simple double-click on the driver, located within the provided CD package or by downloading it online.

 

I would suggest this product to anyone looking at using a singular laptop as a desk-based system with extra portability in mind. Its single-cable connection gives you access to whatever devices you may want to use, it can then be unplugged and taken to meetings or on travel with next-to-no effort, unless you classify unplugging one cable as hard.
