    At this price, you might want to consider buying a Skull n Co Switch dock, which triples as a Dex Hub, a Switch Dock/charger (safe), and a laptop hub?

    At least then you'll get more utility out of it. It's in USD btw.
    Source: bought one from them.

        Interesting been looking for a replacement Dock. Do you need to buy the ac adapter as well or can you just use the standard one that comes with switch?

    •  

      is dex just MHL for most smartphones?

    •  

      Aren’t third party Switch docks dangerous though because no one can decode the actual PD method the dock uses for the Switch? Considering the 5.0 update fried/bricked a bunch of Switches.
      I figure it’s a lot safer to just pull apart your own dock and put it in a smaller housing, albeit more expensive if you’re wanting an extra dock, until Nintendo releases an update that fixes the PD errors that are thrown with other docks.

      Looks sick, thanks

    Possibly nationwide ?

    I spotted them on sale at WarnersBay NSW at same price and didn't think anything of it.

  •  

    shame they didn't put them on the web might have grabbed one. Might go check out city store on Monday but guessing from cdaddy's post they prob doesn't have stock.

    I have one.

    For simple use (web browsing, email, word), it does the job well. Excel is a bit annoying as you need to press enter on a box, before you can input numbers.

    But no lag, no over heating.

    Wish there was another usb port (it has 2), so you can use external storage.

    These days you don't need a dex station to support dex mode, just a generic USB c to hdmi cable is sufficient. So don't buy a dex station just because it looks cool, cos most of us really don't need it.

    I can see the benefit of having a dex station, when you don't have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It also allows you to charge when you use dex vs a separate dongle.

      I know that's the case on my note 9, but I'm not sure if previous phones support that properly. I use my wireless charger along with a cheap hdmi to c cable, works well.

      •  

        After the previous android update it my note8 doesn't need a dex station, which is what this dex station was made for, for dex mode too.

    •  

      Not all generic usb-c to HDMI adapters work.

      I have x4 and only x2 worked but not at 2560x1440 with an S10.

      With a Tab s5e, x1 worked at 2560x1440! Yay.

      No need to buy the official Dex Pad or Dex Station.

    I love Samsung Dex .. perfect as my everyday computer.

    Don't need this though .. just buy a generic product.

    Any in Stock in Brisbane cdaddy?

    under wat catalog

  •  

    Is this compatible with the s10 series?

  •  

    Apparently with this official Samsung Dex you can open multiple apps in desktop mode but with non-branded Usb-c hub you limited to 5 apps at a time

    •  

      can confirm 5 apps max with non-branded USB-C to HDMI hub (Dodocool brand).

      when you open a sixth app, then the first app that you opened is closed.

      anyway ..
      opera app for broweser (allows to force desktop mode)
      google play music app
      file commander app
      gmail app
      vlc app

      that's enough for me

    According to cdaddy there were 28 nationwide. Probably sold out now or should be merged with Insufficient Quantity Deals thread?

    Price is good, just be aware the ports are USB 2.0 and 100MBps LAN

  •  

    any stock in SA?

  •  

    PSA - I'm driving to Ballarat to buy on Sunday, if anyone wants one let me know. Cash on pickup please in MEL CBD next week.

    DM me direct.

  •  

    Just returned one of them to the Bourke Street OW if anyone wants to pick it up.

    Tried it once - not that great

        Apps like teams still have a mobile experience. Everything opens in the browser.
        Chrome is locked to the one account, can't switch between people

          What about email and word doc typing, I'm buying a Bluetooth keyboard to use with mine

          •  

            @db2k: Outlook was actually okay.
            Word documents i didnt try as all my docs are in Teams which opened in the browser. Which was already a turn off

            •  

              @rakkihizoku: I am assuming you already instaLLed the Teams app from Workspace? When I open docs in teams, I have the option of viewing inside teams - or if I click on the Word icon, I can then open up the word doc in Word - and the formatting and presentation is ALOT better and readable …

              •  

                @db2k: Yeah that my teams experience on Windows. On dex it has to either opens the word doc in browser or I open SP then I have the option to open in Word app

          •  

            @db2k: Logitech K780 is amazing … also the similar version without the keypad are great too.
