Plugable Thunderbolt and USB-C Docking Station review

REVIEW – Docking stations are one of those gadgets that you don’t know you need, until you’ve used one.  Being able to plug in a single cable when you come and go from your desk is delightful.  I’ve also had some experiences with poor docks where drivers caused problems or video wouldn’t work correctly.  The …

Aukey CB-C70 4-in-1 Wireless Charging USB-C Hub review

REVIEW – I really like connecting to external monitors when jumping into a project or researching anything that requires multiple windows being open. I don’t like connecting multiple cables to make that happen, so a good hub, dock or adapter is required for USB-C laptops. Aukey has a newer hub aimed at that exact problem …

LandingZone 12-inch MacBook docking station review

I’m not a stranger to LandingZone docking stations. I had their 15-inch MacBook Pro docking station on my Julie’s Favorite Gear page for 3 years. But then I downsized from the 15-inch MacBook Pro to a 12-inch MacBook and could no longer use it. To make matters worse, a docking station is a must-have accessory …
