The biggest difference between these two types of docking stations is the difference in the transmission protocol, and the difference in the protocol version will lead to different charging power and transmission speed.
1. If you are using a Type-C docking station, and the C port also includes USB3.2 and USB4.0 protocols, then the transmission speed and power supply will be much better than the USB docking station.
2. The playability of the C-port docking station is also higher. It can expand HMI, Gigabit Ethernet port, PD port, etc. at the same time, and there will be other points that can be used in the future.
3. USB2.0, 3.0, etc., these are all data transmission protocols, and the Type-C interface belongs to the appearance of the PC version port, and the data can be transmitted because of the use of the USB protocol, so whether it is a C port or USB docking stations, their principles are the same.
Which is better, the typec docking station or the usb docking station?
If the C port of the notebook supports USB3.2 or USB4 protocol, then use the Type-C docking station. The docking station of the USB-A port is only 3.0 at the highest, so even if the notebook has USB3.2, it will be limited by the docking station.
