Many of the Kensington Docking Stations have universal compatibility with a wide range of laptop brands/models and some even work seamlessly across all operating systems, so you can simply plug and play any device! Whether you use your device for home or business, Kensington offers a great range of docking stations that can enhance your productivity by allowing the quick transformation of your laptop into a desktop working environment.
Here at PB Tech we offer the best range of Kensington Docking Stations and will now bring you an informative guide on our favourites. Whether you are looking for a business oriented, mobile compatible or universal everyday docking station, we have the perfect Kensington model for you!
Kensington Home Docking Stations
Having a powerful laptop is great, but if you ever think, “Man, I wish I could enjoy a desktop experience with a more spacious keyboard and a bigger monitor without buying a whole new desktop PC”, then a Kensington home docking station is definitely the solution for you.
Being our most popular home option, the Kensington SD3500V docking station works best with a range of USB 3.0 Laptops, Ultrabooks, Tablets & 2K Monitors and supports both Windows® and Mac OS®. This device is the perfect tool to transform your laptop into a full-blown workstation with a single cable plug that turns one USB port into six, so you can have access to all your peripherals, including mouse, keyboard, speakers, printer and external hard drive. Additionally, the dual HD video output lets you add two external monitors to further boost productivity, enjoy gaming and indulge in entertainment. The docking station also features two USB 3.0 ports that support super-speed data transfer of up to 5 Gbps.
If you have many USB Type-C devices, then a universal Kensington model like the SD4600P or SD4700P would be a great pick. These two devices work best with either USB-C or USB 3.0 Laptops & Ultrabooks, but can support a massive range of devices
The Kensington SD4600P additionally supports Chrome® OS and comes with three USB 3.1 ports and one USB-C port, so you can always have support for any device. If you are looking for an immersive viewing experience, then look no further as the SD4600P fully supports 4K dual monitors, so you can game and stream 4K videos in a completely new way compared to a small laptop screen (provided your laptop can support 4K gaming). The docking station also features simple plug & play installation without the need for drivers or downloads, which makes it smoother to set up.
The Kensington SD4700P is a more advanced docking station that can extend the productivity capabilities of today’s thin laptops, and features a whopping six USB ports (five USB 3.0 ports & one USB-C port), combo headphone & microphone jack and support for 2K dual monitors. This makes the SD4700P an amazing pick for home users that want complete support for all their favourite peripherals and other devices, without constantly plugging and unplugging them.
Additionally, both of these devices have a Gigabit Ethernet port and power delivery, so you can have a fast and reliable connection while your devices can retain their battery juice. Zero Footprint Mounting allows these docking stations to be neatly attached to the back of any compatible external display, allowing you to keep your desktop less cluttered. The Kensington home docking stations makes a great pick for everyday home use and can transform how you entertain, game and work at home, for an affordable price compared to buying a whole new home PC!
