Docking Station Selection Guide
Thee DocKtor is often asked, "Which docking station is best for (or compatible with) a specific vendor/model PC?" This question had more merit when yesterday's "port replicators" were often specific to a host, or a few models of host PCs they were designed for. However, nowadays "docking stations" are often universal, or at least can be used with several models of a particular vendor's PC. Targus' Universal Docking Stations can even be used across platforms (ChromeOS, MacBook, Android, Linux, and Windows). Because Targus has a comprehensive docking station line-up, chances are there is a docking station best for the application(s) of the host-based workstation.
Thee DocKtor often asks questions about the application(s) before recommending a docking station. This is especially true with Type-C as there are now universal, Thunderbolt, and other Alternate Mode docking station solutions from several vendors, and not all of them compatible with the target host device(s). Type-Confusion is currently rampant.Need further help selecting a docking station, let us know.
