Plugable’s Dual Monitor Laptop Docking Station offers dual video outputs for enhanced flexibility

Plugable’s Dual Monitor Laptop Docking Station (UD-3900C) is a solid accessory for remote and/or hybrid workers — or more any Mac user who wants to expand a laptop (or even desktop) set-up.

It adds two external displays, as well as two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port for wired network connectivity, and an audio input/output jack. And it does all this via a one plug connection. The Dual Monitor Laptop Docking Station also features DisplayLink for laptops (such as M.x Mac portables) that don’t natively support dual displays. The dual HDMI – 2x HDMI ports let you connect two screens with resolutions up to 1920×1080. However, you will need a DisplayLink Driver to have full functionality.

The Dual Monitor Laptop Docking Station is compatible with macOS 10.14 and later, as well as Windows 7/8/10/11. macOS user required manual driver installation, while Windows users get plug and play driver installation via Windows Update.

One thing I wish the Plugable accessory offered was laptop charging. However, the USB docking station can’t juice up a host laptop. Still, it offers a lot of functionality for US$157.
