All in all, the DIGITUS 14'' Universal Notebook Docking Station makes a good impression. It offers a good number and selection of ports. Because the laptop can be placed on it, the connections are always within reach. It is easy to set up and can be used with many operating systems, but only with Windows and MacOS all connections and functions can be used.
The 14'' Universal Notebook Docking Station by DIGITUS is delivered in a stable illustrated cardboard packaging on which some information can already be read. In the scope of delivery are:
- Docking station
- USB-C connection cable
The docking station is very flat and finished in matt black. It makes a very good impression.
The docking station is connected to your PC or laptop with the included USB-C connection cable. If your computer does not have a USB-C port, you will need an adapter or a USB-C to USB-A connection cable.
As soon as you connect to the docking station, the driver will be installed automatically and you can use all ports directly.
The docking station has 14 ports including 3 video ports, SD and MicroSD slot, microphone/audio line-in and various USB ports.
The video connections are an HDMI, a display port (DP) and a VGA connection. With them, you can either mirror (single-stream transport mode) or expand your screen (multi-stream transport mode). The MST mode is only available for Windows users. For macOS, it is only possible to use the SST mode.
With the power supply connection via USB-C, it is possible to charge your laptop at the same time via the docking station if the laptop is charging via the USB-C connection.
There is also an Anti-Lost-Lock connector available, to which a Kensington Lock can be attached for example.
The DIGITUS 14'' Universal Notebook Docking Station has a slightly sloped surface and low height so that the end of your laptop can be placed on it, connection cables can run underneath it and your laptop keyboard is angled comfortably.
