Battlestation alert! This Targus USB-C dock connects four monitors

You'll pay a pretty penny for the privilege though, unless Targus honors the price we were quoted.

If you own a notebook equipped with a USB-C port, you’ll want a USB-C hub to enable legacy connectivity with ethernet or an external HDMI monitor. One external monitor. Wait, you want four? Well, Targus has you covered.

At CES 2019, Targus showed off the DOCK520USZ, also known as the USB-C Universal QUAD HD (QVHD) Docking Station. There’s a slew of regular ports, including four USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port with power, gigabit ethernet, a 3.5mm audio jack, and so on. What’s unique about this dock, however, is the four 1080p HDMI outputs, which essentially can be used to create a multi-monitor battlestation as the video shows. Because who doesn’t want to plug into four monitors for work and play?

Though we were quoted $129 for the dock, that apparently was either a mistake or some sort of CES-specific promotional price—even though the dock is available for sale, it’s listed on Amazon at $275. That’s a lot of dough to pay for a dock, even though it enables such marvelous capabilities. Maybe Targus will honor that $129 price...and maybe not. You might want to check Amazon (and the Targus product page) to be sure.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
