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

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 StationRemove non-product link.

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 £275Remove non-product link. 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.
