USB Docking Stations
Laptop or desktop? Each side has significant advantages: on the laptop side, for example, you have freedom and range, whereas on the desktop side you usually have greater capabilities, not to mention unlimited battery use (so long, at least, as the power doesn't go out). For those laptop users who want the benefits of a desktop machine, however, there is a simple solution: a USB docking station.
A USB docking station is a simple piece of machinery that connects to the laptop through a common USB port. It adds a variety of different hardware capabilities to the docked laptop. These capabilities frequently include, but are not limited to, added serial ports, parallel ports, PS/2 ports, and Ethernet ports.
The UH620 docking station that we offer at Byte Runner Technologies is a high-end, affordable docking station that will truly expand your laptop's capabilities. It attaches easily and requires no additional software installation to use. It provides the docked laptop with two additional USB ports, two PS/2 ports, one file transfer port, one serial port, one parallel port, and one 10/100 LAN port. The added connectivity is obvious, simply from the length of this list.
Another easy to use docking option is the VDS-1003. Smaller than the UH620, it nonetheless offers three ports, a serial port, a parallel port, and one PS/2 port for either a keyboard or a mouse. Like all the products that we sell here at Byte Runner, it comes equipped with a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
