Targus Australia has released what it claims is one of the first docking stations to use one-touch ExpressCard connection, delivering transfer speeds five times that of USB (up to 2.5 Gbps).
The station allows computing platforms to be changed over time with no re-investment in a new station. It also facilitates the docking of multiple notebook models in the same home or office, requiring only an ExpressCard connection.
Designed as an alternative to proprietary docking stations, the model features digital video output capability along with both digital and analog audio out, a gigabit ethernet port, serial port and four high-speed USB ports, two of which are always 'on' and provide twice as much power (1000 mA) as standard USB.
The always 'on' means that peripheral devices such as mice, mobile phones and MP3 players can be powered and charged even while the laptop is in standby or shutdown mode or if no computer is connected.
True video output allows the connection of an external monitor directly to the docking station through a DVI or VGA port. Once connected, three viewing modes are available: primary, where an external monitor is used as display; extended, which allows both notebook screen and monitor to be combined for a large viewing area; mirror, which replicates the same screen on notebook and monitor.
Powered by an AC adapter, the station is fully plug-and-play, allowing it to automatically recognise new USB devices without the need for re-booting.
