Connect up to 10 accessories to your Windows PC through a single SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port with the Plugable UD-3000, a universal docking station for Windows-based computers that offers the speed, performance, and reliability found in proprietary docking stations for specific laptop PC brands. With graphics, networking, and hub chipsets that have been selected and tested together to ensure maximum quality, the UD-3000 provides:


  • A DVI port for an external monitor and supports resolutions up to 2048×1152 (DVI-to-VGA adapter also included)

  • An RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet network port (also supports 10/100 Ethernet)

  • External speaker output jack and a microphone line in

  • Two USB 3.0 ports for accessories (such as an external hard drive or another graphics port)

  • Four USB 2.0 ports (great for a keyboard and mouse with two ports to spare)

Speed and Power

Performance is best when hooking up the UD-3000 docking station to a USB 3.0 port on a PC, allowing SuperSpeed data-transfer rates of up to five gigabits per second between the computer and the dock’s USB 3.0 components and ports. Play full-motion video in 1080p on the monitor attached to the dock’s video port. Access your Gigabit Ethernet network through the dock’s network adapter without bottlenecks. Open files in lightning-fast time on external drives connected to the docking station’s USB 3.0 ports. The UD-3000 also can be connected to a computer’s USB 2.0 port, though communications between the computer and the docking station will be no faster than the USB 2.0 maximum of 480 megabits per second.

The UD-3000's four-amp power supply provides current for attaching bus-powered devices to the spare USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, like flash drives or additional USB graphics adapters. However, the unit is not a charging hub. It has no functionality for recharging iPads, iPods, other tablets, or smartphones via its USB ports.

The dock will wake along with your PC from suspend and hibernation modes.

Integrated Chipsets

The heart of the docking station is its DisplayLink DL-3700 chipset, which manages graphics and audio output and Gigabit Ethernet functions. The integration of these functions on a single chipset means fewer internal components need to be bolted together, leading to increased comptibility and reliability overall. Drivers are installed automatically from Windows Update if an Internet connection is present when the docking station is first connected (a drivers CD also comes in the box).

The internal USB 3.0 components and two extra ports are managed by a VIA VL811 chipset, while the USB 2.0 controller chipset for the
