This compact 4K docking station for laptops is uniquely designed with an innovative, stacked-port layout and a small-footprint housing. Because it occupies less surface area than traditional laptop docks, you can easily integrate this sleek docking station into an area with limited desk space available.
Using just a single USB 3.0 cable you can create a full-size 4K Ultra HD workstation without sacrificing functionality due to space constraints. This compact docking station is ideal for a wide range of conventional and specialized environments.
Set up a 4K Ultra HD or dual-video workstation
This 4K Ultra HD docking station bolsters your external display image quality and increases your overall viewing area, making it ideal for video editors, animators, designers, and more. It supports 4K x 2K (3840 x 2160p - 30Hz) resolution on a single HDMI® display, even if your laptop doesn't natively support 4K output, so you can avoid costly hardware upgrades or laptop replacements.
The docking station also makes it easy to turn your laptop into a highly productive dual-display workstation, by expanding your screen space onto an HDMI display and a DVI display. The additional screen space lets you work more efficiently, because you won't have to flip back and forth between pages or windows.
With two possibilities for video output, this docking station is a handy accessory for users in business and home office settings, and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications.
Integrate the full-featured dock into small spaces
This small form-factor docking station lets you save desk space without compromising the ports you expect from a typical laptop dock. Unlike some compact laptop docks that only offer basic connectivity, this dock helps if you have limited space but still require all the functionality of a full-size 4K docking station.
You can start work faster and reduce cable clutter in tight spaces by leaving your peripherals connected to the dock at all times. Plus, setup is fast and hassle-free, so there's little disruption to your productivity, making it perfect for single users, or multiple people who use the same workstation at different times.
Charge multiple devices faster and connect all your peripherals
You can keep your mobile devices fully charged and ready to go using the dock's convenient, front-panel USB fast-charge and sync ports. You can also keep your smartphone and tablet within arm's reach, and the always-on ports will be available even when your laptop is disconnected from the docking station.
The USB 3.0 (also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 - 5Gbps) docking station for laptops offers a variety of other connections that are often missing from port-limited laptops. To make work easier, the versatile dock offers four USB 3.0 ports, giving you plenty of ports to connect even more USB devices.
The USB3SMDOCK4K is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
