Mobile accessory manufacturer Belkin debuted the USB-C 3.1 Express Dock HD earlier this week, revealing a robust and efficient gadget designed for connecting Android and various other devices to computers. The product supports 4K HDMI video output and is capable of simultaneously connecting eight devices which can be charged in a maximally efficient manner, Belkin said, adding that the Express Dock HD utilizes the Power Priority technology for device charging management.The dock also ships with a gigabit ethernet port meant to ensure a stable connection to the World Wide Web, with the entire package also being equipped with three USB Type-A ports and two USB Type-C 3.1 ports. Finally, the Express Dock HD boasts two conventional 3.5mm audio jacks compatible with traditional headphones and speakers.
The product is already available for purchase directly from Belkin and its robust capabilities come at a relatively steep price as the Express Dock HD will set you back $229.99. While the Los Angeles, California-based consumer electronics manufacturer managed to build a reputation of a high-quality device maker, it remains to be seen how many people end up being willing to pay nearly $230 for what's essentially a connection of ports. The firm's latest offering currently isn't available on Amazon but the majority of its other products are and the Express Dock HD will presumably also make its way to the largest e-commerce platform in the world in the near future.
People who own a wide variety of electronics and find cable management to be a massive issue around their computers may find the Express Dock HD to be a compelling offering, especially if many of their devices ship with large batteries that take a while to recharge. Owners of traditional laptops equipped with USB Type-C ports are another demographic that should find the newly announced gadget useful, as are people who seek to simplify the manner in which they use computer peripherals. As is usually the case with premium port hubs like the Express Dock HD, this device doesn't require multiple power sources and should hence prove to be an elegant management solution for the constantly rising number of cables in your life.
