Toshiba Advanced Port Replicator III

 

Toshiba's Advanced Port Replicator III is compact and offers more ports than any other setup, but it's not easy to attach.

Unparalleled number of port types, including FireWire ; Works with a great variety of Toshiba notebooks, old and new ; Includes AC adapter

Hard to dock ; Cannot accommodate modular bay or hard drive ; Not height adjustable

It's not easy to hook up a notebook to the Advanced Port Replicator III; you need to make a couple of fairly precise adjustments, and it's particularly frustrating because while the dock itself has alignment markings, the notebooks do not. Once your...

We have over a dozen of these. The intent was to have monitors, keyboards, mice, power supply and network cable attached to port replicator, so user could just take laptop.

Ease of network attachment and power supply

Has every port you will ever need, e.g., parallel port, serial, 4 USB, Firewire, etc

Difficult to align laptop to dock and just as difficult to disconnect. Toshiba recommends that you should not use any ports on the laptop when the port replicator is attached. I have use the serial port on the dock but so far have not been able to get a r

We have several port rep III's for the several Tecra M4's at our location. There is definitely a learning curve for users getting used to the docking procedure. I am wondering if anyone has damaged any part of the dock or the PC's dock port while...

Many models of PC can use the same dock

Bigtime learning curve getting used to docking

Works great for the M4

 

Another reviewer stated that you must use notebook mode when the M4 is docked. That isn't true; you can swivel and snap down the screen while docked and use the M4 in tablet mode.

Works as expected. Hot undock button works perfectly for my M4

The PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports don't function if the notebook itself doesn't have them. This wasn't explained in the specs and caused a call to Toshiba support

TOSHIBA PA3314U-1PRP Advanced Port Replicator III

 

All in all I amvery satisfied with the product. I am sure it will last as long as the laptop and will even help to extend the life of said laptop by protecting the external connections. If you have a laptop that fits this, you need this.

Very nice port replicator, has 4 USB ports and jacks for modem and ethernet. Specs are correct. I am using this with the Tecra S2 and it charges the battery well. The laptop docks and undocks well

The volume control on the front of the laptop does not control the volume of speakers that you have plugged into the port replicator. The speaker and mic ports on the replicator are not color coded so you have to have good light to see to plug them in

Will not recognize external Keyboard. Tried both PS/2 and USB. Mouse works fine, keyboard doesn't

Product Specifications

The Toshiba Advanced Port Replicator III is an adjustable port replicator designed to work with a variety of notebook PC form factors and port configurations. While providing fast access to your desktop environment, it eliminates the hassle of connecting multiple cables time after time. This saves wear-and-tear both on notebook ports, as well as, the cable plugs themselves. Ever have a network plug disconnect because the end was worn? Since the Toshiba Advanced Port Replicator III comes with its own 75W AC adapter, it will also save you the expense of purchasing a second AC adapter for home!
