Toshiba launches affordable universal laptop docking station

Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today expanded its line of the dynadock™ Universal USB Docking Stations to include the dynadock V. Compatible with all Windows® based PCs with a USB 2.0 connection, the dynadock V offers the universal compatibility of its popular predecessor, the dynadock U, in a smaller package perfect for everyday home, school or business use.

The affordable dynadock V offers consumers a clutter-free way to conveniently stay connected and productive while multi-tasking at their home or office. At just half the size and one-third thinner than the dynadock U, the space saving dynadock V acts as a conduit for add-on peripherals — expanding a laptop workspace into a dynamic PC system.

Key product features include:

* True Desktop Environment: The dynadock V acts as an enabler for add-on peripherals like external monitor, keyboard & mouse, printer, router, headset and other accessories with only one single USB cable plugged into your PC.
* Enhanced Productivity: Four USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet LAN connectivity and 3.5mm audio in and out for headphones and microphone, the dynadock V optimizes a home or office workstation. The dynadock V also includes an easy access Sleep-and-Charge USB port that supplies power to a cell phone, MP3 player or other device even when the PC is turned off or disconnected from the dynadock completely.
* High Resolution: A built-in HD video card allows one to connect an extra VGA or DVI monitor with up to 1920 x 1080 resolution, thus enabling users to connect their small portable laptop to a large HD monitor to surf the web while checking email, watching YouTube, working on a report, etc.
* Easy Software Installation: Toshiba dynadock utility software is included for all video and audio drivers customized for the dynadock V experience. Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers are also included.

“Toshiba’s first universal docking station, dynadock U, has proven to be popular with business professionals and consumers looking for a more versatile workstation. We recognized that we needed to deliver a solution using the same innovative dynadock technology at a more aggressive price point,” said Michael Cassidy, Director, Marketing Accessory, HDD and Services, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “The dynadock V is small on size, but not small on power making it perfect for home or school environments.”

Price and Availability

The dynadock V will be available in February at a variety of major consumer electronics and computer stores nationwide or directly at for $119.991 MSRP.
