great product… can’t say much bad about it… useful linkage w/ CSE links… they’re usually reasonably useful…what were they thinking when they invented this thing?..
ok, i’m a little bit negative these days.
the device is really nice, especially for the price.
however, it seems like i don’t need it. good deal for who’d use it though…
tempting, add a NIC to old computers, or a serial port to new ones
14.1" laptop: great for portability and web browsing, not so great for term papers or gaming. connecting a full size keyboard and mouse as well as a printer and monitor: great for tons of stuff
In for one. If it will allow an in-law to still use their old printer it will be worth the price.
anyone know how this connects to a laptop?
It connects via your computer’s USB port.
Sellout.Woot doesn’t take PayPal? First time I ordered from SW, but it didn’t give me a PP payment option.
Woot creeps me out. I just received a programming contract that requires me to program to a serial device. My laptop doesn’t have a serial port, so I thought to myself, “I wish I had one of those handy docking stations!”
Basically, it’s a 2-port USB2 powered hub (includes the AC adapter), plus it has parallel, serial, PS/2 and Ethernet ports built in. Think of it as a Leatherman of USB-connected external ports.
paypal having issues, they will be back up tomorrow per woot staff.
I connects using a USB 2.0 port.
Note that it DOESN’T do video as one of the previous posts incorrectly states.
pricing for future reference
product(s): 1 Targus PA095UZ Mobile Docking Station w/Ethernet
$14.99 + $5 shipping
Will this connect a monitor?
Seems like a good deal but I am not sure how I would use it. I have a laptop but not sure how this would improve it. What am I missing?
my google skills have failed me.
anyone know if the ethernet port works ‘live cd’ with ubuntu or knoppix?
not this model.
Targus also has a video, and an audio version… but this ain’t it baby.
Well for a minute or two, I was trying to see what I could use this for, then after reading a little more about this item… I got it!
I always have to check older keyboards, and mice, so I was planing on putting a computer in the garage just to do this, but why do that when I got my laptop and now I have this! So hopefully it will solve all my issues.
pretty much… check out the description.
(2) PS/2 ports
(2) USB 2.0
As far as I can tell the main reason to use this is if you have a few devices that you have to hook up all the time at home and at work. This makes it so that all you have to hook up is one USB.
