GadgetGuy’s take – take the Kensington SD1600P USB-C Dock on the road
Its designed for the road warrior to have some convenient expansion when travelling. The VGA port is a streak of inspiration as it gives access to data projectors and more that need this connection.
It is not a powered desktop dock. If your needs are mobility and to add a single monitor and gain some USB ports, then it is ideal.
- Small and light
- Kensington quality
- Driverless (macOS and Windows 7 need a one-time driver downloaded on connection)
- Simple to use with USB-C or Thunderbolt
- 60W will power most MacBook 13 or similar Windows tablets and hybrids
- Only one monitor at a time – HDMI or VGA
Rated as a small, pass-through power, mobile dock. It does not perform the same tasks as powered desktop Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C docks.
- Overall: 4.4 – higher if you can bag a bargain
- Features: 4 out of 5 – it does what it advertises
- Value for Money: 4 out of 5 – a tad expensive – shop around
- Performance: 4 out of 5 – the limitations of 5Gb/s and passthrough power are evident under full load.
- Ease of Use: 5 out of 5 – easy to install and use
- Design: 5 out of 5 – small, utilitarian and love the inbuilt cable
