Ugreen 9-in-1 Docking Station: Build & Handling

The build quality of this docking station is top draw. The metal frame gives it both a high end feel and considerable protection for the contents. The bottom of the unit has two rubber strips which grip the surface of your desk and provide a comfortable connection between the dock and desk. It is fairly weighty which means it stays firmly wherever you place it but that might put users off who want something more portable.

Ugreen 9-in-1 Docking Station: Performance

In terms of speed, it is quick, seriously quick. Through USB A&C, 10GB files are transferred in only 16.5 seconds. It’s not just uploads that are quick though, the ethernet port boasts 1000Mbps to keep downloads flowing. The high-speed charging capabilities means that you’ll never be left without charge for long.

Ugreen 9-in-1 Docking Station: Verdict

This docking station boasts an impressive set of specs and is guaranteed to speed up your workflow. Those needing 8K video output will need an alternative hub but most users will be happy with the 4K capabilities of the dock in question. There are more affordable options available but if speed and reliability is of the essence then there’s not much that compares.
