Ugreen Revodok Pro 209 9-in-1 Docking Station review: More screens

Ugreen Revodok Pro 9-in-1 Docking Station

The Ugreen Revodok Pro 209 9-in-1 is a pretty great way to increase the number of screens you can use without having to deal with multiple cables plugged into your laptop. It also powers your notebook, has a 1Gbps Ethernet port, and all you need is to plug in just one USB-C cable to your computer.

Quick specs

  • Supports 100W PD charging
  • 10Gbps transfer speed
  • Dual 4K at 60Hz, Gigabit RJ45
  • Works for both Windows and macOS

You can have up to two additional monitors running at 4K at 60Hz, plugged into either the DisplayPort or the HDMI port on the dock. The Revodok Pro 209 has two of each type of port in a pair. Each pair allows you to connect to one external monitor, but you can only choose either the HDMI or the DisplayPort.

Do note that for the external display to run, you will need to install the DisplayLink drivers. Thankfully, this is pretty easy to do for Windows or macOS. When connected, the Revodok Pro will show a disk drive with links to download the driver. When installed, your monitors should start showing up. I've tested the Revodok Pro with a 14-inch M2 MacBook Pro, but it will use about 30% CPU performance when playing video on the external monitor. If the video is playing on your laptop's screen, the CPU utilisation will be low. You can also do multi-stream transport (daisy-chaining) if your monitors support it.

Besides being able to increase the number of monitors you can use, this dock also comes with two USB-A ports, and one USB-C. There's also a 1Gbps Ethernet port. It all runs through the single USB-cable that connects to your laptop (and powers it with 100W of power). This docking station doesn't come with a charger, but you can pick up Ugreen's 140W charger or Belkin's version. I've not noticed any overheating with this dock yet, as it has dual vents, and uses aluminium to direct away heat.

The Ugreen Revodok Pro 209 9-in-1 docking station usually retails at S$240. But I got it for S$160 during a Black Friday sale last year on Amazon SG. It's more expensive on Shopee or Lazada, so feel free to grab it from Amazon SG instead.
