With a docking station, you can turn your workplace into a work station. You can connect all your accessories like a keyboard and mouse to your laptop, if it has too few ports. You can also use an extra monitor via a dock. This way, you work more efficiently with a second and sometimes third screen, because you can open more tabs side by side. In addition, there are docks with connections for memory cards. You can transfer your photos from the camera to the computer faster or you can empty the memory card of your phone. So think carefully about what the dock should be able to do and then base your choice on what the dock can do.
