That is not a docking station. A docking station would include the ethernet adapter rather than it being something you plug in. Same for video and audio.

This is what a USB docking station looks like:


And if you want a full on thunderbolt 3 docking station:


As you can see- these are powered devices and nothing at all like a dongle.

If you factor in not having to buy dongles for everything, including ethernet and mini-displayport/hdmi- it's not much more expensive and the experience is a lot better.

From what I can tell, you could achieve this in two different ways. You can get adapters for either Mini DisplayPort or USB 3.0 that will output to multiple monitors. My guess is that your current monitor is plugged into the Mini DisplayPort of your laptop? So you could get an adapter that plugs into a USB 3.0 port such as this one. There are a few different options other than the Dell adapter to which I linked, but all are around the same $100 price point. Doesn't look like it can be done for much less than that price.

EDIT: P.S. I wouldn't worry too much about quality being shit; USB 3.0 has plenty of bandwidth to handle two video signals @ 1080p.

I got 3 of these for my Asus laptops and they all work great. Supports 2x HDMI monitors each on risers plus have laptop open to form visual triangle, all 3 screens work perfectly.


*forgot to add, just grab some HDMI to VGA or DVI cables or adapters as necessary.

try a displaylink USB dock,
I use these with Dell, HP & toshiba laptops

u/alliancen7 · 2 pointsr/razer

I'm using this and it works really well: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Display-Docking-Station-D3100/dp/B00O0M46KO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1482862747&sr=8-3&keywords=usb%2B3.0%2Bdock&th=1 the used deals go for about $60-70, but any 3.0 Displaylink capable dock should do the trick!

What about this [Dell Inspiron i7559-763BLK] (https://shopineer.com/laptops/Dell-15-6-Inch-Gaming-Laptop-i7559-763BLK)?

Intel i5-6300HQ 2.3 GHz Quad-Core, 15.6", 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5, Windows 10, 5.67 lbs.

It also has a good cooling system, an IPS screen for wider viewing angles and a long battery life. You can quite easily upgrade RAM later on if required.

I think you can get a [docking station] (https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Display-Docking-Station-D3100/dp/B00O0M46KO/) for it if you want to connect more monitors.

For more options you can check this [list of gaming laptops] (https://shopineer.com/laptops/top-lists/best-gaming-laptops). There are several good options within budget there, depending on what you are looking for.

So I looked at a bit of stuff and made sure you could get the most expensive desk on that site when I was looking at it. The monitor I have add is that isn't on the PC part picker list is for productivity. The one on the PC part picker list is Moe of a gaming monitor. I choice to got for ergonomics rather then style, but you might like how it looks too. Also added windows 10 pro to the parts list. All in all, this is what I came up with.

Since thunderbolt 3 is relatively new there are very few docks that have been released and the ones that have don't have any reviews stating if they work with certain computers. One option: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FKTZLBS/
Another option is to buy a USB 3.0 docking station. I have Dell's D3100 which work pretty well but there are also a lot of other options but most only support 2 monitors: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ECDM78E/
These of course won't charge the laptop like a thunderbolt 3 dock may be able to.
Since the xps 15 does not have displayport you would not be able to daisy chain directly but would instead have to buy thunderbolt 3 to displayport cable that supports daisy chaining but I am not sure if one is out yet.

I think this Dock is a better value?


Because of PrimeDay its 90.... but the other displayer adapters are like 60-90 even the usb 2.0 is 40 ... not sure if I should get this dock or the Surface Dock at this point

u/Emerald_Flame · 1 pointr/buildapc

A laptop dock would likely work well.

Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00O0M46KO/

Different ones have different ports and features.

u/CrisisDesigns · 1 pointr/Windows10

I am currently using the Dell D3100 Docking Station https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O0M46KO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_b.4QCb7RD8VPD

u/straightouttaireland · 1 pointr/buildapc

Great thanks for the info. What sort of adapter should I be looking to get to be able to do this? Would something like this suffice? Or would this docking station work?

u/NetSysBastard · 1 pointr/techsupport

We have 4 laptop users with similar requirements. Last year I bought a few USB 3 docks to provide additional HDMI and USB capabilities.

Of all the USB docks we tested, the Dell D3100 was able to provide the best performance and supported 2 HDMI monitors with the fewest problems.

I bought one for myself to test at home first to make sure it did everything we needed, and so I could better support it if they had problems. Tested with Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Acer laptops & desktops.

Not a single support call since we set them up.

Relatively inexpensive considering what it does, and have used them for over a year with no issues.

Something like this should work

u/juken7 · 1 pointr/laptops

There are ways for instance I have a dell M6700 so all I'd have to do is set in it's docking station.

I don't think they made a dedicated docking station for the Inspiron model though.
There is a "Dell USB 3.0 Ultra HD/4K Triple Display Docking Station (D3100)"
That compatible with alot inspirons as well as many other models so you could try that.

u/S3nseiCY · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ah crap that’s what I was afraid of. Any good suggestions of docks that can handle 1 1440 and 2 1080 monitors?

I was thinking about this one: Dell USB 3.0 Ultra HD/4K Triple Display Docking Station (D3100) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O0M46KO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ozCEDb2F6DJQ7

u/EsteemedPolygon · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Going back to question 1:


This was an alternative proposed by a coworker... but I'm not sure about using a USB 3 to get: internet, 4 usb devices, and 2 monitors..

u/GWT430 · 1 pointr/thinkpad

I would highly recommend getting one that is Thunderbolt 3 capable. I rather buy one used than get a USB-C, nonthunderbolt dock. All of the USB-C docks will drive the dispaly outputs using a software chip. The thunderbolt 3 docks can use a display port signal directly on the laptop, which works much better.

Looks like the Thinkpad thunderbolt 3 docking station will cost you $160.


Here is a dell one that sells for $96 used, and $130 new.


u/w00t692 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'm not saying they have feature parity I'm saying that as a device it has existed I'm more excited for the pcie capabilities. You guys fill in the gaps with what i'm saying and assume i don't know anything


one port. and yes i know it's only a single 4k monitor. The whole bandwidth issue.

I know all about the power output of 3.1, the capability to use external graphics, etc etc. I, honestly, cannot wait for it to become ubiquitous. It's glorious. But let's not kid ourselves here.
