Targus ACP70 Universal Docking Station End Of Life
The ACP70 was the world's first USB 3.0 Universal Docking Station and started the whole Universal and cable docking station trend, but alas, Targus has just discontinued it. The replacement for the ACP70 is the Targus DOCK120.
The new DOCK120 has two significant improvements.
1) Includes a DisplayPort video port with up to 2K video resolution (2560x1600p60)
2) The dock is 50% smaller which saves desk space. The complete spec comparisons are shown in the following table:
