Bangalore, July 23 2018: Like the motto of The Three Musketeers, " One for all, all for one", the new docking station from Targus, to link your laptop or PC to virtually any peripheral -- keyboard, mouse, broadband internet, projector, card reader, TV or display, external speakers or hard disk.
It does this by provided a variety of ports: VGA display, HDMI and HDMI mini, Type C USB, Type 2 USB 3.0 and gigabit ethernet. It also enables "power pass through", which means the USB connection can pass data even as it carries power. It needs installation with either Windows or MacOS and its own input cable sits nicely in a recessed slot for transport. Just one catch -- it connects with a Type C USB cable only. So if your laptop is an older model, you need to get an adapter. I wish they had thrown one in, free!
The Targus Type C Universal Docking station costs Rs 9999 -- a life saver if you are a professional who travels and needs to make presentations on multiple screens. ANAND PARTHASARATHY
