ViewSonic Expands Docking Station Series of Monitors with 2K and 4K Models

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of display solutions, launches the VG2756-2K and VG2756-4K 27-inch docking monitors. Developed to be a workstation command center, both the VG2756-2K and VG2756-4K are designed with built-in Ethernet and USB Type-C ports and integrated vDisplay software for quick access to on-screen display settings, giving users more control of their work environment.

The ViewSonic VG2756-2K and VG2756-4K docking monitors deliver fast data, audio, video and charging power over a single USB-C cable, enabling users to quickly and easily create a more streamlined and efficient workspace. Built-in RJ45 Ethernet lets users connect to their wired network and transmit data directly to their computer or laptop via only a single USB-C cable - no docking station needed. One USB-C cable eliminates the need for HDMI, DisplayPort and other cables, wires and adapters. An integrated USB-A hub also allows users to connect to peripherals like a keyboard and mouse. The vDisplay Manager software delivers easy access to OSD settings to control brightness, volume, and more, as well as customized screen templates for multi-tasking.
"These additions to the VG56 docking monitor line offer our customers larger screen sizes at higher resolutions to create a bigger command center solution," said Phong Phanel, product marketing manager for professional displays at ViewSonic. "Designed for busy workspaces and environments, the ViewSonic VG2756-2K and VG2756-4K can help boost output, maximize productivity, and eliminate clutter. Features such as the USB hub and OSD software function, can help to reduce installation time and business costs. We also ship these docking monitors in eco-friendly, biodegradable packaging to assist in minimizing recycling fees."

I guess the ethernet is cool but surely the point of a docking station is something to plug your webcam, headset, keyboard, mouse, phone-charger, card reader, into?

It needs tons of front-facing ports in the base, not hidden awkwardly up in the underside around the back of the screen.

More front-side USB ports for flash drives and other travel devices would be ideal, but those rear ports should already have the other stationary devices (webcam, keyboard, mouse, etc) plugged in.

From what I've seen connecting a laptop via USB-C to a monitor (which contains a basic hub, with built-in network connectivity, USB connectivity for peripherals, plus the daisy-chain ability to link to an additional monitor) is both convenient (most people don't move their monitors, kb etc.) and logical. Many people would find this to be all they need.
If you need extra USB connectivity you can always hang an additional hub off the back of the monitor.
The biggest point here is the fact that jacking in when you get back to your home or work area is a breeze (connecting 1 cable), and there's no extra clutter on your desktop.

If you need card reader functionality beyond what's already built in to your laptop, then you may need to add an external reader either to one of the USB connections on the monitor, or directly off the laptop to use on the road.

As someone who routinely sets up workstations and docks for our users I would welcome utilizing this type of setup where applicable.

I've been using a USB-C dock since last year, it's great, now we need TVs, monitors and desktop PCs to embrace it propperly and get everything standardised around USB-Type-C.

Ban the use of USB-A ports on new devices!

Want to use your new keyboard with a Type A? Extra £5 for the adapter.
