It's a Dell brand docking station.
Tech Support Specialist: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

The serial isn't showing anything unfortunately. Do you want to use the dock or do you just want to be able to use dual monitors?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Dual monitors.
Tech Support Specialist: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

And are the monitors HDMI, VGA, DVI, or Displayport?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
