"Very prompt delivery and excellent product."

Overview

If home is where the heart is, your laptop's home is where this Belkin docking station is, allowing you a single ExpressCard connection for plugging your laptop into your monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, and ethernet.

Do you get home or work and wish you could easily plug your laptop into your existing desktop setup without having to plug everything in individually? This docking station lets you plug in a single expresscard to connect all of your desktop appliances at once. Since your laptop's expresscard can handle the bandwidth, it makes sense that you would use that port on your laptop to dock it.

Pros: Looks good. Saves having to plug in 5 or 6 different cables for 'docking' my laptop at work.

Cons: Plugging/unplugging while Windows is running can cause the computer to freeze up.

I'm thinking about purchasing this awesome dockstation but I'm wondering what is the compatibility with linux distributions. Will it work under linux?


Answer:

Unfortunately Belkin has only released Windows drivers for this product. Belkin does not list any compatibility with Linux at all.

Question:

I have a sony vaio laptop with GeForce Go 7600, but I do not have a DVI or any digital output, only a VGA and S-Video. Would this item allow me to connect to my HDTV? playing movies on it? or is there any other alternatives? Sony actually sells a dock station for my laptop, and it connects to the bottom of the laptop so im assuming since it is not USB connection, then it would be connected directly to the motherboard, and it provides DVI-D output, USb blah blah, I can even connect a 2.5" HDD to it, but it stated clearly that I cannot use the default Intel display card, but I chose Geforce go 7600 when I bought this, so I am guessing my card is actually capable to output digital signal? or else how could the dock simply adding a DVI-D output allows me to output digital?


Answer:

This belkin dock runs completely independently from your internal video card. The dock is it's own video card. It supports up to 1600x1200 resolution so it would not be able to run a 1080p signal, but would do 720p. Since the video card is not dependent on your built in video card this unit can output a digital signal regardless of what your other video card is capable of.

Question:

I have a Dell XPS M2010 laptop running Windows Vista. I already have one extra DVI output built in. My monitor resolution is 1600 x 1050. The external monitor I currently have hooked up is also 1600 x 1050. With this product, would I be able to plug i


Answer:

You certainly can. I'm actually doing something very similar right now.
The docking station also includes ethernet, audio, and extra USB ports, too. If you need just the display,I would actually recommend considering another product. The USB to DVI external video card is about $70 cheaper and will drive up to a 1680x1050 display via USB. The performance is comparable if not better than the Belkin.
