Docking Stations vs. Port Replicators May 14, 2014

Posted by laptoppartsexpert in Docking Station, Port Replicator.

I noticed after my post about Docking Stations and Port Replicators that some people are searching for the difference between the two. It used to be that a Docking Station was a device that you put your laptop inside and it had a stand for a monitor above the dock.


Technically, you might say that a Docking Station uses your laptop while the screen is closed showing the display on an external monitor while a Port Replicator uses your laptop with the screen open. These days they are all really Port Replicators so the terms are used interchangeably. I hope this explanation helps solve the issue.


If you have any other questions about docks or replicators, feel free to write me at info@laptoppartsexpert.com. You can also find some available at our website www.laptoppartsexpert.com.
