Port Replicators and Docking Stations for laptops

[Translate to Englisch:] Notebook Docking Station

In case you use your laptop mostly stationary and you want to connect many peripheral devices such as printer, mouse, keyboard or external screens, a port replicator or a suitable docking station can be a very useful extension. As a result, the peripheral devices are no longer connected directly to the laptop and thus the common mess with all the cables can be avoided.

What's the difference between port replicators and docking stations?

In the first place, the two differ in the way they are connected to the laptop. Port replicators are connected via USB, whereas docking stations have an internal interface. This means that the laptop can be connected quickly and easily with a docking stations. However, most docking stations are therefore not compatible with each other and are limited to a specific laptop series. On the other hand, a port replicator would be a better choice for a workplace with different laptops.

 

USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port-replicators

Port replicators, that are connected via USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 form a third category, that unifies the advantages of the other two. Both connections are standardized and present on more and more notebooks and they also both have a high bandwidth. Therefore, they can easily be used to connect a plethora of USB-devices, card readers, LAN and so on without any problem. Additionally, these connection can also carry a DisplayPort signal, which allows for the connection of multiple high-resolution displays. USB Power-Delivery also allows you to charge the Notebook using only one cable. Additionally, many USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port replicators have an on/off button and therefore also allow you to use the notebook with the lid closed.

Port Replicator and Docking Station FAQ

Here you will find all important questions and answers concerning dockings and port replicators

  • Do docking stations work even if they can only be delivered with a stronger ac adapter?

    Technically speaking, a more powerful power supply can be used without any problems and does not pose any danger to your device, as it always draws as much energy as it currently needs. The only disadvantage is the usually higher price of the more powerful product.

  • Kann man einen USB-C/USB-3.0 Portreplikator von einem anderen Hersteller nutzen?

    Ja, dass ist generell möglich. Auf Leistung und Art des Anschluss muss natürlich trotzdem geachtet werden.

  • My docking station came with a power supply. Can I use it to charge my laptop?

    Basically yes, you can use them to charge your laptop, however you have to make sure, that it has enough power to do so. To find out, if it has it, please compare the specifications on the back of the original power supply with those of the one, that came with your docking station. The output voltage should not differ more than 1 volt and the output power should be greater or equal to that of the original power supply.

  • Welche Vorteile bietet ein/e USB-C Portreplikator/Docking Station

    Die größten Vorteile im Vergleich zu USB3.0 sind eine schnellere Datenübertragung und die Möglichkeit das Gerät über USB-C aufzuladen. Außerdem entwickelt es sich immer mehr zum Standard bei neueren Endgeräten.

  • Welchen Portreplikator benötige ich?

    Zum einen müssen Sie auf die Kompatibilität des Anschluss mit ihrem Gerät achten. Hat ihr Laptop keinen USB-C Anschluss, so kann es bei manchen aktuellen Modellen zu Problemen kommen. Des weiteren muss der Portreplikator genügend Leistung zur Verfügung stellen und darf nicht weniger Watt umsetzen als ihr Notebook benötigt. Zuletzt können Sie individuell bestimmen wie viele und welche Anschlüsse für Peripherie-Geräte Sie benötigen.

  • What is the difference between a docking station and a port replicator?

    First and foremost, the difference lies in the connection type. Port replicators connect via a universal port such as USB, making them compatible with many devices. Docking stations are connected to the device via a proprietary interface and are therefore often compatible only with a laptop series. However, this allows more functionality, such as the laptop can be closed, or a power button on the dock itself. In addition, the docks are often like a cable, so the controller chip is in the laptop itself. This allows a higher bandwidth especially compared to USB. Often this is beneficial for connecting monitors and LAN.

    If you work with many different devices or you do not need much functionality, e.g. only USB and audio, port replicator is suitable for you. Advanced functionality tailored to your device is more likely to be found in a docking station.

    Port-Replicators which are connected via USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 often combine the benefits of normal Port- Replicators and Docking Stations. The standardized connection allows for compatibility with a multitude of devices, both connections have a high bandwidth. Therefore, you can not only connect USB-devices and card readers, but also LAN and multiple monitors. Additionally, they often allow for charging via the same cable used to connect them and even can turn the device on and off.

    Whether you are looking for a replicator or a docking station, you will find the right device for your laptop in our shop.
