HIS Multi-View X2 USB Docking Station Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2015-03-31 read/post comments(0)

The Multi-View X2 USB Docking Station from HIS is a real help when we are frequently on the road or even at offices if using compact laptops/ultrabooks with a low number of ports. With laptops and Windows tablets, we are able to have up to four displays on at the same time (the internal display, the second display via the tablet/laptop HDMI output, third and fourth display thanks to the dock), but also plenty of USB ports for data transfer, quick charging or connecting various peripherals. In case we lack a LAN port, the dock also provides it for us, along with an additional headphone and microphone jack. read more
