Organizing your desk can be one of the most stressful tasks of your life, especially when you have a mix of analog and digital tools that you need to get things done. Aside from keeping everything in place, cable management can become a necessity if you don’t want your desk to look like a jungle. This doesn’t even take ergonomics into account, especially when it comes to finding the right monitor height to relieve your neck eyes. With so many factors to consider, it might come as a surprise that there could be a product that addresses all three at once, but that’s exactly what Anker is proposing with its upcoming docking station, which will allow you to get work done without getting unnecessary stuff out of the way.
There are many monitor stands on the market today that are designed to raise computer screens to a more ergonomic height. Most of them do that and only that, which might be fine if you just need something to prop your monitor up a little higher. But the new Anker 675 USB-C docking station offers a lot more, helping to get most of those pesky cables out of sight and out of mind, so you can only use the cables you really need.
As the name suggests, this Anker docking station really is a hub of ports, and there are definitely a lot of them. You won’t be short of USB-A and USB-C ports, but there’s also an HDMI port for your computer display. There’s even a data card reader, so you don’t need to connect a separate peripheral for those one-off SD or microSD cards from cameras and devices. The most commonly used ports are on the left side of the dock for quick access, while others are hidden beneath the surface to keep your hands from tripping over them. And as a bonus, there’s a wireless charging pad on the right that supports most modern phones.
Unlike typical computer docks, the Anker 675 is a stylish accessory that won’t look out of place on your minimalist desk design. The surface is made of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and can support a wide range of monitor sizes. The curved edges and corners give it an aesthetically pleasing shape that’s just the break your eyes and mind need when dealing with the pressures and stresses of work life. In addition, the empty space below is a perfect storage space for documents or even other devices that you want to keep within reach even if they are not needed immediately.
Keeping your desk tidy doesn’t always have to be a hassle, even with all those cables running back and forth between devices. The Anker 675 USB-C Docking Station Monitor Stand offers just the right amount of cable management to get those cables out of your hair while leaving some breathing room for the rest of your tools on your desk. Anker’s new product launches on January 30 for $250.
