Aerb 3in1 Smart Multimedia Dock for Galaxy Devices Review

Recently I got my hands on the Aerb 3in1 Smart Multimedia Dock and usually I am kind of skeptical about using off brand docks that claim to have a lot of functionality.  Usually you have to jump through hoops to get a device to work, but yet the Aerb Dock is as easy as they come.  I plugged in my peripherals (mouse and keyboard, HDTV, and micro usb charger) and your device becomes alive on your screen to do whatever you want.  My wife thought this was the greatest way to play Candy Crush, but hey whatever floats your boat.  Alright, lets break this thing down.

What we got:  Aerb Smart Multimedia Dock

The Good: 

  • 2 x USB 2.0 (keyboard/mouse, external storage)
  • 1 HDMI Out (TV/Monitor)
  • 1 micro-usb (for charging and data transfer if plugged into computer)
  • 4 built in rubber feet to hold the dock in place

The Bad: 

  • Won’t work with a thick case, but a very very thin case would
  • Charges slow, but that’s not the real reason we are using it
  • No audio out for speakers, but can use your TV’s HDMI to push through your system

Judgement: 

I ended up plugging mine into my TV at home and connected with a wireless keyboard and mouse. This allowed me to have one extra USB, so I slapped on an external hard drive and everything worked as it should. I played movies from the external hard drive and they were crisp and clear running at 1080p.

It is useful to download “Rotation Locker”, which is free, to put your screen into landscape mode and keep it there. That way your entire screen is used by the TV and not just the middle of it.

The device is nice to have when you have friends or family over. Instead of them huddling around to see a new app or pictures, you can display it on the big screen, with great picture quality.

Reigning in at just under 25 bucks, this is a dock that holds its own and gives the factory Samsung Smart dock a run for its money. If I had to choose between the two I would go with the Aerb hands down. You’re getting the same functionality but minus the extra USB port and audio out, but for 50 bucks more it’s not worth it to me.

Check it out on Amazon or head over to Aerb’s official website for more details!
