Thoughts and Conclusion
The SD1700P USB-C Dual 4K Portable Mobile Dock is a great accessory for those of us who live and work in hybrid environments. If your day requires that you largely work from a laptop but need the flexibility of using external monitors, printers, or other devices, you’ll appreciate what is on offer here.
Small and light, this one goes in the bag easily and travels well. The 11-inch braided cord won’t tangle, plus it magnetically attaches, too.
As someone who splits time between home, office, and remote locations, I like that I can quickly plug in accessories and monitors in different locations. Plus, when I’m working from a coffee shop I can also charge my phone and laptop through the same device.
Given that most of today’s laptops are small and thin, USB and HDMI ports are not all that common; however, almost everything comes with a USB Type-C port. This device is perfect for adding a number of ports to your mobile workstation without adding bulk or heft.
