StarTech has announced two new entries to its already extensive line-up of high-end docking stations. This time, however, these are a bit different than your standard dock.

First, the Triple-Video dock provides three dedicated video-out ports (2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI), one of which will support 4K video resolution. However, using a combination of two or all of the video ports will mean a reduction in resolution for one or two of the monitors. In other words, users will not be able to power 3x 4K displays at once. Other connections include 5x USB 3.0, RJ-45, and 3x 3.5 mm audio.

The second docking station is designed as a docking bridge between two different notebooks. The notebooks can share external displays without disconnecting or reconnecting video cables via a convenient switch on the dock itself. Additionally, the dock supports direct files transfers at USB 3.0 speeds. For users who constantly fumble around two computers, this may be the perfect solution.

The Triple-Video and Docking Station for Two are now available for $263 each. Both have been designed to work with Windows and Mac OS via an available USB 3.0 port.

Triple Video Docking Station (USB3DOCKH2DP):

  • 3x video-out (2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI)
  • 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) supported on a single 4K DP monitor
  • 5x USB 3.0 hub ports

Docking Station for Two Laptops with File and Peripheral Sharing (USB3DDOCKFT):

  • Convenient switch button to select active system with docking station
  • 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) supported on a single 4K DP monitor
  • 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI 
  • 5x USB 3.0 hub ports

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
