Product Description

Enables turning one PC into many with Windows Multipoint Server 2012 or Fedora 18.

For WMS 2012, OS and CAL license is not included, but a licensed driver for the hardware is. For Fedora 18, works out of the box without any additional licenses or software. Also works with WMS 2011, Fedora 17, and Userful Multiseat Linux 2011.

Functionality

Many users can simultaneously share a single machine. After setup, plugging in a DC-125 zero client automatically pops up a new, independent login screen. Any user can sit down any any of the connected zero clients, and then log in as if it was their own computer.

Connectivity and Technology

A single USB 2.0 cable between the server and each Zero Client carries all data and power. All Zero Clients on share a common 480 Mbps USB 2.0 bus per host controller. Recommended for web and application use only. Not suitable for motion video or gaming. Standard female VGA/D-Sub port to monitor drives modes up to 1280x1024 / 1440x900, using internal DisplayLink DL-125 chipset. Standard 3.5mm audio in and out for stereo speakers and microphone.

Compatibility

Dual Core or 2Ghz CPU or better recommended. Search "DC-125" on plugable.com for detailed hardware and software compatibility information.

Power

No AC adapter needed. The DC-125's two free USB 2.0 ports have sufficient power for connecting a USB keyboard and USB mouse (higher power peripherals like USB flash drives not supported).

Included in Box

USB 2.0 Docking Client, 5-meter USB 2.0 A to B cable, 75/100mm VESA monitor mount, desktop standing mount, quick start guide. Drivers available via download.

First, I must make it clear that I have taken the DC-125 'off piste' so my experiences, while largely positive, don't reflect what you will see using the product in a more official capacity.
I'm using the DC-125 to provide a second seat on a computer running openSUSE 11.4; that means I have a separate keyboard, mouse, monitor and sound running down a single USB cable from my main computer. It's pretty impressive from a large-matchbox-sized box fixed to the back of the monitor! (as well as the stand pictured they also supply a VESA mounting that screws to the back of the monitor so keeping everything very neat).

This setup is not supported (yet) by Plugable but they have been enthusiastic in their encouragement and say they are looking to get things working 'plug-and-play' with popular Linux distros soon. However, at the moment some knowledge of configuring X and your display manager is necessary if you stray outside the supported setups. Nevertheless, it can be made to work very well in a short time, and now provides a good, sharp, responsive display and no noticable lag with keyboard or mouse.
Most programs work fine on this so long as they don't require 3D or compositing (eg flash desktop effects and many games). There is the odd desktop program that crashes but the developers of Okular, at least, appear to have this in hand.
All in all this has saved me the cost of another computer, and I could add further seats for the cost of another DC-125 and monitor should I need to.
All in all, very impressive.

I bought a Belkin port replicator and it didn't work even after downloading extra drivers. This box, however, worked straight out of the box. It automatically installed all the drivers it needed and works perfectly. This is the best deal port replicator on the market.

I was looking to buy a port replicator or docking station at three times the price, so I had a little hunt around here and saw the ad for Plugable DC-125 and I hummed and arhed for a bit but picked this up for a very tidy sum from Amazon I was a little hesitant at first. Item was dispatched quickly set it up and the device was really compact. I fitted it at the back of the monitor the software drivers needed a update and a little tweaking in Windows 7 ... and now it works like a charm. I have had the mouse freeze a couple of times but i just unplugged the USB connection and it re-set itself and i did not have to power off anything got it working with 3 monitors at the moment and it is great for the price I would recommend. I will keep an eye on the mouse freezing but I would buy another one for the other office.

I bought this as something that could just be plugged in and would work. When plugged in I lose all sound from my lap top and only get a part image on the second screen.

It turned out to be my lack of knowladge. Roze from Plugable tech support was extreamly helpful and told me which sttings needed changing. Once the settings were changed everything worked fine.

Just received this magic little box.
Researched thin client options online and couldn't believe his cheap little gizmo could do all that was proposed on Plugable web site.
Ordered Friday afternoon and arrived today. Plugged into a Toshiba NB305 and now using a Samsung 20" screen, Microsoft laser mouse, Logitech keyboard, Creative 2.1 speakers all through this box within 15 minutes of plugin.
Display drivers and input device drivers all automatically downloaded from Win update whilst I watched patiently.

Absolutely fab bit of kit for half the price of other similar devices.
Would have given 6 stars if I could and it had it's own power as I think it may drain netbook battery power, but doesn't seem to be as yet.
