Chicago, IL, United States, 2016/10/06 - Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced two USB 3.0 docking stations specifically designed for Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro tablets - TrippLite.com.
These new docking stations expand the capabilities of the Surface by adding Gigabit Ethernet access, three USB 3.0 ports and an optional HDMI port. They are compatible with all Surface models and versions and feature a low-profile design that fits perfectly onto the back of a Surface kickstand.
Key Features of Tripp Lite’s USB 3.0 Docking Stations for Microsoft Surface
• Add three USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and an external HDMI monitor via the Mini DisplayPort and USB-A port (select models);
• USB 3.0 hubs support data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps and are backward-compatible with previous USB generations;
• Ethernet ports support true 10/100/1000 Mbps network speeds;
• Fit perfectly onto the back of a Surface kickstand;
• Plug-and-play, with no software or drivers required.
“The Microsoft Surface is a powerful tool, but with only one USB port and no internal Ethernet card, it also has its limitations,” said David Posner, Tripp Lite’s Director of Marketing for Cables and Connectivity. “Our new USB 3.0 docking stations take the Surface to the next level. They offer a quick and easy way to transfer files, access a wired network and connect to an HDMI monitor.”
