Plugable USB-C Mini Docking Station attaches to VESA, provides 85W power, Ethernet, USB-A to MacBook, MacBook Pro
A new USB-C dock from Plugable returns legacy ports to users including Ethernet and USB type A, in an enclosure that can be easily attached to the VESA mount on the back of a display.
The new UD-CAM USB-C dock from Plugable provides a single HDMI 1.4 port for 4K resolution at 30Hz, or lower resolutions at 60Hz. Additionally, it has one USB 3.0 type A port on the front, and three on the back, plus Gigabit Ethernet on the back, and a headphone jack on the front.
Connectivity from the host system is provided by a full 10 Gbps connection from the host system when available. The dock is incompatible with Apple's USB Superdrive, as are most docks, but third-party optical drives function fine.
Included in the package are the dock, the VESA mount to attach the dock to a display, a 100W power supply, and a 1 meter USB-C to USB-C cable.
The Plugable UD-CAM dock is compatible with the 12-inch MacBook, and the 2016 and newer 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro running macOS 10.12.6 or newer. It retails for $119, and is available now.
