One of the downsides to mobile computing is the limitation of device connectivity with your laptop. Too few USB ports, inability to connect an external or even second monitor easily and so forth.

Typically this is handled by a clunky and space consuming, not to mention EXPENSIVE docking station that will only connect a specific make and model laptop.

Enter the StarTech USB VGA Dock. Weighing in at just at 7 1/2 ounces and measuring 8″x2.8″x0.8″ this small footprint, lightweight connection enhancer features four USB 2.0 ports, One 10/100 Ethernet jack along with stereo out and microphone jacks, all connected to your computer via USB 2.0.

Not only that, but the StarTech USB VGA Dock also features a VGA port to connect an external or secondary monitor via the USB port of your laptop. Supporting resolutions of 1600×1200 @ 32 bits and 1920×1200 @ 16 bits it’s more than useful when you need that extra desktop real estate.

I was able to set this up in no time flat. And using the included software was able to easily connect and configure a second monitor as an extended or even mirrored display. The addtional USB ports are very handy for connecting addtional devices and the audio jacks performed well for connecting my external speakers easily.
