Targus is a well-known manufacturer of all things laptop and with their distribution network covering 145 countries you've most likely heard of them. The brand is probably best known for their laptop bags, but the product range also covers mice, external drives and other peripherals. We haven't reviewed any of their products before, but now they've come up with a new docking station that caught our attention.

Targus USB2.0 Docking Station with Video - Add more connectors to your laptop easily

The docking station we received is the model ACP51USZ, and it arrived to our test packed in a white cardboard box, so instead of having a look at the box lets have a look at what's inside instead. In the middle there's the black dock itself, and on the left side of it are the power supply with two different AC-plugs, an USB-cable and a driver CD. On the right side there are two extra rubber pads, a manual and some warranty information.

The specifications cover all the connections we have got used to seeing in laptop docks. There's the network connectivity, a graphic card and four powered USB-connections (two of which are special high power connections). The clever thing here is that as the dock is connected via USB, instead of proprietary docking connection, all of these features are fully independent and don't disable anything on the laptop itself. This is particularly important with the graphic card, you really do get an extra connector.
