Connect up to two external monitors to your Surface Pro 3
The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station on Friday became available for purchase both online and offline in Canada and the United States. By far the most expensive accessory for the 12-inch tablet at $199, the Docking Station promises to transform your Surface Pro 3 device into a full-fledged desktop workstation.
The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station has: three USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini DisplayPort video output, 3.5mm audio input/output connection, security lock slot, and power supply input.
Combine the Docking Station’s Mini DisplayPort with the one already present on the tablet and you get the ability to connect up to two external displays. Alternately, you could use either one of those ports to connect a 4k display just as Microsoft Surface senior product manager Suneel Goud likes to do.
“I personally use it at work to connect to my 4K external monitor, ergonomic keyboard and mouse, printer, external hard-drive, and multimedia speakers. And I still have open ports for additional accessories,” Goud wrote in a post on the Surface Blog Friday.
