From connecting your laptop to the dock, to the experience thereafter, things happen fast. USB 3.0 is called “SuperSpeed” for a reason; it’s capable of transferring data at a rate of 5 Gbit/s (10x faster than USB 2.0*), and with access to wired Gigabit Ethernet, you instantly make a secure, wire speed connection that leaves WiFi in the dust. There is also a USB 3.0 rapid charge port.
* USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. However, your laptop/device must also have a USB 3.0 port to achieve these transfer speeds.
Super Smart / You’ll Barely Know It’s There
The footprint of the dock is relatively small and is completely out of the way when in use. The dock’s width is slightly smaller than the average laptop, and the front to back wedge shape is about half the length of a laptop. The design is meant for the laptop to sit on, covering the dock and allowing air to circulate under and cool the computer. On either side of the dock are easy access USB 3.0 ports (one rapid charge), with additional audio in and audio out ports on one side.
Super Functional / Zero to Fully Functional in Seconds
When productivity is the priority, the Tagus USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Universal Docking Station creates a productive environment. With the ability to support 2 monitors with better than HD quality, and an array of other support devices, the Universal SuperSpeed Docking Station empowers users to be hyper-functional.
