With today’s technology comes portability. Laptops, tablets, and Ultrabooks are awesome tools for busy people on-the-go. But wouldn’t it be great if these devices had a full array of connectivity capability?

Tablets and Ultrabooks are limited in screen size and are often lacking in ports. Imagine using them more effectively by connecting them to other monitors, speakers, printers, external disk drives, and all of your other desktop USB peripherals. The Diamond DS6950 Ultra Dock allows you to do just that.Diamond Multimedia Ultra Dock 5K Dual Video USB-C/Ultra-HD 5K Docking Station (DS6950)
