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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] / [email protected] 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 [email protected] 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.

It's only cheaper if you don't have to buy a legitimate Windows licence to upgrade the firmware :D

Frankly, you don't *need* to buy a 'legimate' Windows license to install that operating system. It runs okay without a license and it seems Microsoft is okay letting you use it 'trial-like' until you get around to purchasing your license. They're probably happy enough collecting and selling your telemetry data than not having you using their OS at all.

And there is hell no info about location of this store or from where they sell all parts.
So how i will know about my taxes? I do not want to make account just to find out these.
Personally I went for the official one, simply because it's nice to have the Valve logo on it which matches my deck.

In addition, I feel Valve have done a lot for the Linux community overall, so I'd rather give my money to them as opposed to a company I haven't heard of before who is most likely just aiming to make a quick buck off of Valves success.

I'm aware this opinion might spark outrage in some people, but it's just my opinion

What I don't like about JSAUX's solution is that it partially covers the vents.

Why does the USB-C port say "USB-C DP"? DP would imply DisplayPort-out over the USB-C, which I doubt this does. Did they typo "USB-C PD" (Power Delivery)?

It's a joke. Even the idea to have to use another OS to upgrade an accessory is absurd.
