We continue to follow CES 2023 live news with Kensington. The Californian company took advantage of the event to introduce several products that will catch the attention of people working from home. In the list we discover the new docking stations, trackballs, silent mechanical keyboard, Bluetooth headset and security cable. We reveal all the details.
Four universal docking stations
Let’s go first with Portable docking station MD120U4 USB4. It includes the latest USB4 technology making it compatible with a wide range of products. We’re talking USB4, USB-C 3.2, Thunderbolt 4, and Thunderbolt 3 ports for Windows, macOS, iPadOS, or Samsung DeX devices. There are also two HDMI 2.1 ports that provide up to 8K at 60Hz for one display and up to 4K at 120Hz for two displays. With a USB-C power adapter (at least 80W), you can charge your computer while using other connected devices.
Still at the top of the range, Kensington also introduced the SD5780T Thunderbolt 4 Dual 4K/6K docking station. It has a video output that can go up to 8K at 60Hz or 4K at 120Hz if you have a compatible device. However, it’s the 11 total connectivity ports that are most impressive, including 4 USB-A 3.2 ports and an SD card reader.
For more portability, SD1700P USB-C Dual 4K Station with Qi Charging (see photo above) you. In addition to being compact and simple, it can be used to charge your phone without the need for a cord. That’s why we’ve added two HDMI ports, a USB-C port, an Ethernet port, and two USB-A 3.2 ports.
Kensington will also have a fourth global terminal which will be available in the second quarter of 2023 which promises several interesting innovations. This device will blend the concept of a station and a laptop stand which is a perfect combination for those who want to maximize their ergonomics.
For those shopping for a quality helmet, H3000 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones is a good solution. The latter is equipped with the latest Bluetooth 5.2 technology and allows up to 60 hours of music autonomy and more than 40 hours of calls. It also makes use of passive noise cancellation technology to avoid distractions. Finally, for comfort, it features an over-ear design, an adjustable headband, gel-infused ear cups, and a rotating microphone and ear cups.
Kensington introduces silent mechanical keyboard
As a gamer, I always feel a little awkward using my mechanical keyboard for work because it makes a lot of noise. This type of keyboard is great for gamers because it reduces response time, but is less practical in everyday life. Now, here’s Kensington coming up with the perfect solution for me with a keyboard that beeps under 55dB. In addition, the company promises us comfort and durability with this. It’s a lovely product that I will definitely go for and get myself soon.
Three track balls, two of which are for beginners
Since I got my hands on a Kensington trackball, I don’t want to put it down. On the other hand, I have to admit that adoption can seem daunting at first glance. With the Pro Fit Ergo TB450 and TB550 models, Kensington offers two affordable, easy-to-use trackballs. In fact, both require only the use of your thumb and are equipped with a design that is more akin to a regular mouse.
For the most insiders, Kensington has just unveiled its Slimblade Pro TB B2B Trackball. It takes advantage of all the company’s expertise in this field by offering a product that is more accurate and comfortable than ever before. Also available now at Kensington partner retailers.
Kensington is also innovating with security cables
Finally, the Californian company also had an innovation for its flagship product: security cables. The Nano range is so thin and light that it is 70% smaller than other cables. In addition to being durable, it is thin and designed to allow even the thinnest computers to rest on surfaces. for more details, from here.
