I am new to docking stations, I need one that I can use to add 2 monitors and use for 2 different laptops. Suggestions?


#1

There are so many docking stations, Plugable was suggested as a good one, but which one of these is best for use with 2 different laptops. One is a Lenovo and one is an HP. I want to be able to see the laptop monitor plus 2 add on monitors.

Hi Patti,

Thank you so much for reaching out to us, and sending over the information of what you are looking for in a docking station. I would be happy to answer your questions.

Based on the fact that you would like to utilize 2 additional displays, and are hoping that compatibility is possible when using 1 of 2 systems at a time, I think our UD-3900 (www.plugable.com/products/ud-3900) would be a great fit! It allows you to connect 2 displays, 1 via HDMI and 1 via DVI. It has 2 front USB 3.0 ports, 4 rear USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, and both audio input and output ports. The UD-3900 connects to individual host systems via USB 3.0 ports on the laptop, and it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, but you will notice performance degradation when doing so.

I hope this information helps, please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns, and I would be happy to assist!

Thank you for your patience,
Marc
