Your Guide To Buying a Laptop Docking Station

By Sharon Lim

    These days, more and more offices are allowing—or requiring, in some cases—employees to take their work with them, so that they can keep projects going even when they aren’t physically in the office. In those cases, switching files back and forth between computers can be a major hassle. This also comes up with people who work out of their homes and who need computers for both business and personal use. In both cases, a laptop docking station is a great tool. It’s a piece of desktop equipment that allows the user to plug his or her computer into the station and have access to a full keyboard, monitor, and all of the other equipment that comes in a traditional office setting. If you need to add that kind of flexibility to your computer, here are some tips for finding a great docking station.

    E-Port: E-port stations are decidedly the larger of the two main kinds of stations (e-port and USB). The user snaps the computer into the station—which the monitor, keyboard, and other materials plug into—making a secure location.

    • Because of their size and a secure connection, e-port stations are an excellent option for customers looking to equip their offices since they fit easily on a desktop.

    USB: USB stations are standalone ports that use USB cables to attach to the computer and peripherals.

    • Because they use USB connections, these stations provide an excellent degree of versatility—they can plug into just about every laptop with a USB port.

    Secure: Secure stations allow users to lock (rather than simply snapping) their computers into place, thus allowing them to leave the office without having to take their computers along.

    • This is a great option for people who need to be able to go in and out of the office and who don’t want to be tied to their computers while doing so.

    Here are some things customers talk about when reviewing the laptop docks that they have purchased:

    • Universality: Since there are so many types and brands of laptops out there, it is difficult to find a dock (especially with e-port models) that will work with every single computer, but the best models will work with a wide variety of laptops.
    • Speed: Transmission speed is important, since information has to travel between the laptop and the peripherals that are plugged into the dock.The best brands allow users to work quickly and efficiently with little to no lag time.
    • Ease of use: Good docks come with clear, easy-to-follow instructions for setting them up and using them. Better docks are so intuitive to use that they can be set up and plugged in straight out of the box.
    • Connection: Regardless of whether the dock connects to the laptop via an e-port or USB cable, a great model will establish and maintain a secure and fast connection with the laptop.
    • Versatility: This is especially important if you’re purchasing a docking station for use in an office where multiple people will need to use the station with different computers. When looking at the product description, try to find a station that is compatible with different computer brands and operating systems.
    • Ease-of-use: If you’re the only user of the station and you’re comfortable with your computer skills, then you don’t necessarily need to look for a simple, plug-and-play station. However, if you aren’t entirely confident in your skills—or if you’re buying a station for an office that has employees who might not be as computer-savvy—then it’s a good idea to look for a station that is easy and intuitive to use.
    • Monitors: Since the monitor is one of the most important peripherals that you’ll plug into your docking station, it’s a good idea to check out the product specifications to make sure that it is compatible with the monitor (or monitors) you have in your office.

    Dell: Dell is an American manufacturer of computers and computer-related equipment. Founded in 1984, the company is one of the world’s most popular computer companies, with its products being sold worldwide.

    Kensington: Kensington has been producing computer locks and other peripherals for over thirty years. The company offers a wide range of aftermarket products, including computer docks, locks, and carrying cases.

    Toshiba: Toshiba is a Japanese electronics company. Founded in 1875, Toshiba manufactures and provides a diverse array of products and services ranging from information technology to consumer electronics, and household appliances.

    HP: Hewlett-Packard is one of America’s oldest and most successful computer companies. Founded in 1939, the company has been a leading manufacturer of computers and computer accessories for decades.

    Plugable: Plugable is an American manufacturer of computer accessories. It specializes in making USB devices, laptop docks, and storage products.
