Looking for Docking Station


New Member
I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive docking station for my dell 1420 laptop and didn't have a clue where to start. Well, I did start looking but everything I found was well over $100 dollars so I chose to ask the forums where everyone knows about computers.

I want it to be able to hook me into my 17in lcd, printer, mouse, keyboard, ethernet (internet), and power.

Thanks! I look forward to your suggestions.

Hi Hangman

Unless someone here has actually "Shopped for and purchased" one of these items, basically anyone else will have to Google search it and compare prices for you, and really...the shopping is your responsibility. We help you when it has technical issues but we can't find, comparison shop, and have it shipped for you.
We don't know where you live, Tim-Buck-2 or Hawaii so it's even hard to point you to a certain store because it may not be anywhere in your hemisphere...so now you know that it's not because we're ignoring you or anything, it's just that nobody has purchased one of these and basically are at the same starting point you are right now.

Here's the only advice I can give you. Google the product and find a few models that are available, then Google some model numbers with the word "reviews" in the search terms and find if anyone has reviewed them. Then when you have it narrowed to a couple of models, you can use Shopbot.com (or .ca) to do some comparisons.

Good Luck
