Here’s the result when you connect the Plugable UD-160-A universal laptop docking station to a completely fresh Windows 7 system:
- Windows automatically finds, downloads, and installs drivers for all the devices on the dock — the built-in USB C-Media audio, ASIX ethernet, DisplayLink graphics functions are all supported.
- *NO* driver disks to find, no web addresses to enter, nothing – you get the latest drivers automatically.
- This will work with the Plugable dock and any Windows 7 machine, now and in the future.
If you have Windows Update enabled on Vista and Windows XP – the story is the same (although Microsoft’s UI looks different on each OS). So go ahead, lose your driver disks — just get that off your mind. You won’t need them. Cool.
