This TAA-compliant KVM docking station for two laptops is the first of its kind. It functions similar to a KVM switch, letting you share your keyboard, video, and mouse between two computers.

Plus, it provides dual-monitor outputs, so you can add two extra displays to your workstation, and then share them with each laptop.

This dock eliminates the frustrations of working with multiple computers. You can save money and desk space by using the same peripheral set with each computer, plus you can easily transfer files between your two laptops. It’s a simple yet ultra-efficient method for working with more than one laptop.

The dual-monitor KVM dock supports Windows® or Mac (macOS 10.11 to 10.13.3) laptops, or a combination of both. And for a faster workflow and additional convenience, this specialty docking station lets you share and exchange data between your two computers.

It's perfect for a range of users such as professionals and office workers with multiple laptops, students, and IT technicians. It’s ideal for collaboration in classrooms, labs, and boardrooms, as well as many other specialized applications.

Shared docking revolutionizes the way you work

This cutting-edge docking station is designed for users with multiple laptops or Windows based tablets. Like a KVM switch, it lets you share your peripherals between two computers, with the added benefit of offering extra monitor connections. With shared docking you can get more work done in less time and avoid the nuisance of plugging and unplugging your laptops while you’re using them both at your workstation.

When you’re in a hurry, switching control to either computer is effortless using the switch button that’s conveniently located on the side of the dock.

Docking station for two laptops connected to two hosts as well as dual monitors

You can create a dual-monitor workstation that connects with two laptops if you have DisplayPort™ and HDMI® displays, making it easy to display applications or browsers from either laptop. Alternatively the dock supports a single 4K DP monitor, for 4K x 2K (3840 x 2160p - 30Hz) cinema-quality resolution and vivid picture quality.

Plenty of ports gives you everything you need

In addition to connecting two laptops, this full-featured KVM dock lets you connect up to nine peripherals, and provides all the ports you need. And, with five USB 3.0 ports you can connect more USB devices than most docking stations allow. Plus, every port can be easily shared between each connected laptop.

It’s easy to charge your mobile device quickly using the always-on fast-charge port. With several USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and a headset jack, you can connect multiple peripherals and control them from either laptop.

Unlike some docks, this easy-to-use docking station offers seamless, error-free driver installation which makes it easy to create a dynamic and high-performance workstation.

Direct file sharing between laptops makes life easier

For an uninterrupted workflow and streamlined convenience this dock integrates file sharing capabilities. Laptop-to-laptop file sharing is faster, more secure, and easier to use than cloud or external storage solutions, plus, you can skip the aggravation of configuring your network to support file sharing.

Using Windows Easy Transfer, or the included PCLinq software, you can easily create files and presentations on your primary laptop, and quickly transfer them to your portable Ultrabook™, MacBook, or tablet. Plus, with two laptops connected to just one dock, the file sharing dock makes it easy to collaborate with colleagues or classmates.

The built-in file transfer software is easy to use and data transfers are lightning quick, using USB 3.0 technology. (USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 - 5Gbps.)

The unique file exchange technology creates endless application possibilities, and the dock especially caters to developers, as well as network and systems administrators.

The USB3DDOCKFT is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
