If you have a USB-C Macbook or other compatible USB-C laptop or tablet, the Plugable Ultimate Dock — first revealed as a Kickstarter last year, winner of a Laptop Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award — is finally hitting the market.
For laptops with USB-C ports and USB-C’s new optional Power Delivery and Alternate Mode graphics features, this is a dock that maximizes what you can do with one USB-C cable: charge up to 60W, add up to 3 additional monitors, connect to a wired network, support wired headphones, and connect all your USB devices. The Plugable USB-C Triple Display Docking Station is available for purchase in the USA and shipping now.
Because USB-C features are optional and not supported by every USB-C laptop, before buying please check our compatibility tables on the product page to make sure your Mac, PC, or Chromebook is compatible. Compatible systems include the USB-C versions of the Dell XPS 13, the Apple MacBook 12” with USB Type-C, and the Google Chromebook Pixel 2015. Note that older systems with only familiar USB “Type A” ports will not work, even with a converter cable. You must have one of the new generation of USB Type-C systems.
Combining the best of both the DisplayLink technology used in our top selling UD-3900 docking station and the DisplayPort Alternate mode technology available via USB Type-C, the UD-ULTCDL docking station provides two additional HDMI outputs and one DVI output as well as providing up to 60W of power via USB-C Power Delivery (“PD”) standard to charge your host computer while adding Gigabit Ethernet, audio input/output, and expanded USB device connectivity with 4 USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a single USB 3.0 USB-C port. All through a single USB-C cable.
You may have seen this dock recently as the winner of Laptop Magazine’s Editors’ Choice award. See their detailed review for their analysis and more information.
Founded on the notion that as USB connectivity evolved it would help turn the PC ‘inside-out’ and allow users to connect devices simply and easily without having to open their system, Plugable is excited to bring to market this latest incarnation of a product that meets this goal and will allow customers to use their systems to their fullest potential.
