Our Plugable USB 2.0 Universal Laptop Docking Station adds an extra monitor, speakers, microphone, 10/100 Ethernet interface, and 4 AC powered USB ports to any brand of PC. All with a simple USB 2.0 cable back to the PC or laptop. All this functionality is delivered in a fully integrated, elegant “sail” case.
The most common use is for single-cable docking of a laptop to all the USB peripherals on your desk (quick and easy to come and go). But it’s also useful as an all-USB KVM solution in combination with a USB switch like this, or as a powered, daisy-chainable USB thin client in combination with Windows Multipoint Server 2011, Userful Linux 2011, or coming versions of open source Linux.
And now, because of increased production volume, we’re able to drop the price. Previously $89.95, the Plugable UD-160-A is now just $79. Just check out the product reviews on Amazon if you’re curious about what other people are using it for, and their experiences. And feel free to comment if you have any questions. We’re here to help!
