Startech announces new USB type-C Docking Station with Power Delivery
When Apple debuted their new MacBook, over a year ago, USB type C was still a novelty - unknown to many consumers. At the time, most other PC makers were still including conventional USB type A ports on their latest devices and quality type C peripherals were hard to find as a result. Many MacBook owners were left with no choice but to purchase Apple's pricey accessories. In the year or so that has passed, USB C has slowly been approaching ubiquity; gradually appearing on more phones, notebooks and accessories.
For years Startech has been providing IT professionals with essential accessories. Today, they announced their first USB-C docking station with power delivery capabilities. The device (SKU: MST30C2DPPD) promises to be a useful product especially for owners of machines with a single type C port. In addition to delivering 60W of power to a machine, the docking station allows for great connectivity and expandability. It includes multiple USB 3.0 ports, quick charge USB ports for mobiles, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs that supports one UHD 30 Hz or two WQHD 60 Hz displays, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet port, all in a fairly compact form factor. With the dual monitor docking station, users will be able to transform a Chromebook or MacBook into a functional workstation. It's expected to be available for purchase late August.
