Find the new official Steam Deck Docking Station too expensive? Perhaps you might like to take another look at JSAUX, as they've announced another upgraded Docking Station.

Blimey, they need to slow down a bit. I already have their previous normal Docking Stations, which I reviewed and found to be excellent. Plus, I have the Docking Station with an M.2 SSD slot here ready to review (delayed due to sickness on my end).

Now they've launched the Docking Station "HB0702", which brings with it DisplayPort 1.2 so it can more directly compete with Valve.

  • 7-in-1 Docking Station for Steam Deck. Equipped with an HDMI 4K@60Hz output, a Gigabit LAN Ethernet input, a USB-C port for charging, three USB-A 3.1 ports, and a DP port, letting you explore a new way to play with Steam Deck.
  • It comes with a 4K@60Hz / 2K@120Hz HDMI 2.0 output When it's connected to an external 4K monitor, it provides a sharper and smoother visual experience, so you can enjoy the visual feast on your games.
  • Full charging speed for your Steam Deck. The JSAUX Steam Deck docking station supports 100W max. power delivery, which is enough power to charge your Steam Deck at full speed (45W) when paired with the original charger.
  • The JSAUX all-in-1 Steam Deck docking station blends hub and stands together perfectly, so you can keep your desktop neat and organized.
  • Support DP1.2, simultaneous connection of HDMI and DP port, two monitors can output 4K@60Hz at the same time, expand the screen and enjoy the ultimate gaming experience.

The main difference here is the DisplayPort 1.2 addition and an extra $10 to the order price making it $59.99 (no charger included). You can order it direct but they also told me to expect it on Amazon in early to mid November like their previous dock.

I've been told one is being sent over to GOL for me to take a look.

90 bucks really isnt a lot for a good dock, this whole thing is kinda showing who has and hasnt bought a laptop dock before. but thats not what this topic is about. all in all the jsaux docs aint bad, i have their cheapest one and it works well enough. I HATE how I have to use windows to update their docks firmware when they are selling a linux product, that alone put me off of buying from them again until they fix that.

that aside, this product doesnt look bad if you can get past it needing windows to be the best linux peripheral it can be, but DP 1.2 eh its hard to get excited about that when the steam dock has 1.4 which is way better. Plus the longer shipping time. I ordered my valve dock the day it launched and it'll be here tomorrow. so yeah if i ordered this jsaux dock today it would be longer shipping too. :/

FWIW, Got my tracking number for the Valve Steam Dock today! They're moving people!

I am thinking about what a dock is and thinking "Why does it even need firmware?"
Zer0Cool Oct 10, 2022
got my shipping number today, should be here the day after tomorrow!

docks get firmware updates all the time. heck even the jsaux dock has gotten at least one(which you NEED to use windows to install) to make it work with lg tvs. my dell dock at work has had some to resolve usb 3.2x2 issues.

Quoting: Zer0Cooldocks get firmware updates all the time.
I don't doubt it. I just feel like when not just the computers, not just the screens and other peripherals, but the wires connecting them need firmware updates, it gives me doubts about the direction our technology is going, you know?

yeah i feel ya there, it would be nice if we had gone a different route, but the world has long since made its choice :(
