How To Use A Targus DOCK419 Docking Station

Thee DocKtor put together a video showing, in detail, how to unbox, connect and use a Targus DOCK419 Docking Station.

The video shows the dock in use with various host devices including PCs, MacBooks, Chromebooks, Android and Linux devices, even Thin Clients.
Downstream connections are also shown for USB, Ethernet/Internet, and of course audio and video display monitors. The DocKtor shows connection scenarios supporting work-from-home, school-from-home and connection to TVs.
