Undoubtedly, M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are amazing laptops but unfortunately, they have two flaws. These two flaws are as follows limited I/O (only two ports on either model), or native ability. The native ability allows driving just one monitor.
Ugreen, the accessory brand has recently introduced a 12-in-1 MacBook docking station that provides support for around three external displays at 4K 60Hz.
The docking station by Ugreen is expected to resolve the flaws of the M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. In addition to offering expansion for connecting external hardware devices, the Ugreen dock enables users to mirror up to three 4K 60HZ displays at the same time respectively. The docking accessory by Ugreen allows for connecting external hard drives, charging devices, and connecting printers. Moreover, the docking accessory by Ugreen is also available for Windows. Windows users can gain 8k 30Hz capability of the docking station. It could be easily connected to one of the supported HDMI ports on the backside.
A few things are important to note here:
- External monitors require the installation of Displaylink software to ensure the precise pairing of ports and displays.
- The dock is not suitable for M2 Apple products.
