Package Content & Design
CHOETECH M20 comes well-protected. Once taken out the docking station, there is user guide in multiple languages and warranty info card. Be sure to go through it especially on the display output part.
Outstanding build quality thanks to solid aerospace aluminum shell. In addition, it also helps with heat dissipation and provides safer use. It’s a long one. Slightly shorter than laptop width. As you can see, there are 2 anti-skid bars on the top.
Another 3 anti-skid bars at the bottom. They will provide stability on both docking station and notebook. You can’t miss the long USB-C cable as well.
Yup, have a closer look on the USB-C plug and anti-skid bar. And the slot for cable keeping.
Alright, there are the ports. Start from 2 in 1 audio/mic port, Gigabit Ethernet, SD & TF slots, USB-C port (data only), 3 USB-A ports, HDMI output, VGA port, USB-C port for PD pass-through and white LED light indicator.
CHOETECH 11 in 1 USB-C Docking Station supports both Mac, Windows, iOS and even Android. As long as your devices have full-featured USB-C port, you can use it then. For example, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 (14″ model with AMD Ryzen 7 4700U) as below. By the way, your laptop needs to have USB-C port on the left. Else M20 cable won’t be long enough to reach the right side on docking mode.
Besides provide better stability and increase height, M20 helps to improve air circulation that further cool down your device with heat output at the bottom like mine. Better typing experience too.
Let’s have a look at the technical data now. Below are the benchmarks from Yoga Slim 7 that powered by AMD Ryzen 7 4700U. Below is the USB 3.0 port performance by using 960GB Transcend ESD250C Portable SSD on CrystalDiskMark Benchmark. Rest assures that you can enjoy fast transfer rate on those ports.
As for micro SD slot, it is working perfectly well. Below is the result from 512GB Kingston Canvas Select Plus microSD.
Same apply to SD slot with UHS-I support. Excellent result too with 64GB Transcend 700S SD card.
How about LAN performance? It is getting 944 Mbits/s based on iPerf3 tests. Ultra-fast no doubt. A must-have feature as most of the ultrabook does not have Ethernet port loaded nowadays. Perfect for streaming movies and online gaming.
Don’t forget the useful HDMI output too. Yes, it does support 4K @ 30Hz indeed. Just add another portable monitor, you can enjoy dual monitor at any time, anywhere from now on. Enjoy crystal clear picture quality and vibrant multi-channel digital surround sound through it. 3.5mm audio port is working properly too. Great for those who don’t want to use HDMI as audio output. Or need microphone input.
Overall, CHOETECH M20 is a wonderful USB-C docking station for Macbook and ultrabook. Plug and play supported. No additional driver installation is needed. Yes, Samsung DeX is supported on Galaxy S and Note Series as well. As long as your devices have full-featured USB-C port, you are good to go.
