Toshiba introduces dynadock™ U3.0 Universal USB 3.0 docking station

24 March 2012

Sydney, Australia – 24 April, 2012. Creating flexible work environments and increasing productivity is easier for organisations following the launch today of Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited’s new dynadock™ USB 3.0 docking station.

The dynadock™ U3.0 Universal USB 3.0 docking station enables users to connect up to three monitors (including the notebook screen), Tablet or desktop PC with just one cable providing a clean work space that is perfect for hot-desking,” said Phil Daidone, Accessories Product Manager, Toshiba Australia, said.

“Many businesses are now looking at the idea of BYOD – allowing employees to Bring Their Own Devices to work, ensuring a satisfied workforce. One of the benefits of the dynadock™ is that it allows organisations to work with multi-vendor platforms securely as employees simply connect their device to the network via the dynadock,” he said.

Through the single USB 3.0 cable, users can connect their notebook to TVs and projectors, stereo speakers, an external hard drive, printer or full-size keyboard – perfect for presentations.”

Toshiba’s dynadock™ U3.0 allows users to easily link up to any brand of Windows®-based computer with a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port. By acting as a central hub, it minimises overcrowding on the notebook or computer desktop space.
Equipped with six USB ports — two USB 2.0 ports and four USB 3.0 ports the dynadock offers exceptionally fast data transfer. Two of the front ports are fitted with USB Sleep & Charge technology which offers the option to charge smartphones or MP3 players while the notebook is powering down, sleeping or undocked.
