Ugreen Steam Deck Dock 6-in-1 review: Handheld buddy

Ugreen Steam Deck 6-in-1 Dock

If you're planning to get your hands on the upcoming Asus ROG Ally, then consider also getting the Ugreen Steam Deck Dock 6-in-1. While the name mentions the harder-to-get Steam Deck, this dock works perfectly fine for the Ally as well.

Quick specs

  • Supports 100W charging (with compatible charger)
  • 1x USB-C, 2x USB-A, 1x HDMI, Ethernet, 5Gbps data transfer speed
  • Supports up to 4K@60Hz

The dock allows you to expand the single USB-C port of your handheld PC gaming machine into one with two USB-A ports, one USB-C, LAN, and HDMI. This means you can connect it to a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers/headset. I tested this with a 144Hz full-HD monitor. Depending on your game, you may not even be able to hit that. The amount of ports on the dock is just nice, in my opinion.

Technically speaking you can also use this dock with your laptop or an iPad to expand the amount of ports. I do want to point out that your tablet won't be able to sit comfortably on the dock though, unless it's a smaller one such as the iPad mini. It will fall over unless you have something to prop it up. Our ROG Ally sat fine in the dock, which was surprising. I expected the dock to either be too tight or too loose.

One thing this dock can't do though, is to replace your Nintendo Switch's dock. The Switch plugs in from the bottom, while this is designed for Steam Deck (and similar devices) where the USB-C port is on top. Lastly, the design somewhat blocks the Steam Deck's rear fan vent, but isn't an issue with the ROG Ally. That's because the Ally has higher-placed fan vents. This dock also supports 100W charging, though note that the Steam Deck only charges at 45W max.

At S$61, the Ugreen Steam Deck 6-in-1 Dock is honestly an easy buy to complement your Steam Deck or ROG Ally. It expands your connectivity options, and is portable enough you can take it along on your vacation so you can play games on your hotel TV. Get it from Shopee, or Amazon.
