13 February 2014  ~ Add monitors, printers, network cables, keyboard, mouse, external hard drives and dual screens quickly and easily through a single USB port with the Targus USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Station from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC). The Targus docking station provides a universal expansion solution for laptops, desktops and Ultrabooks, making a variety of peripheral devices instantly available through its plug and play capabilities. And best of all, it only uses one USB port to connect everything, making it perfect for those with limited available ports for connections.

“Laptops and ultrabooks are getting smaller and more compact than ever, but one of the problems with this reduction in size is that certain features often have to be sacrificed – and multiple USB ports are usually the first to go. With the number of different accessories that we use these days, from printers, external keyboard and mouse, backup drives and external hard drives to any number of other USB devices, this lack of available ports can be challenging. The Targus docking station eliminates this issue, offering a single USB connection that enables you to plug in numerous peripherals,” says Heinrich Pretorius, Targus Product Specialist at DCC.

The Targus USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Station supports both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 and can be used with all versions of Windows as well as Mac OS and Windows-enabled tablet devices. It offers dual screen support for up to two additional monitors through an HDMI and a DVI-I port, supporting monitor resolutions of up to 2048 x 1152 for high performance graphics, and a Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port for hard-wired network connections. The ‘Always On’ USB ports provide continuous power to connected devices, even when not connected to a computer. A fast and simple ‘One Touch’ connection to desktop peripherals delivers super USB 3.0 speeds of up to ten times that of USB 2.0 for lightning fast data transfer.

“The clever design of the docking station also means that it can double as a laptop rest, tilting the keyboard to a more comfortable typing angle and providing more effective cooling. It is the perfect solution for any desk environment, at work or at home,” Pretorius says.

The Targus USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Station is available immediately from selected resellers and on request from retailers. Pricing starts at R3 599.00 including VAT. For more information, visit www.drivecon.net.
