Dell Eport can be bought on Amazon for $50 without power supply for $70 or less with it new. Used with powersupply is ~$50. Does not make sense to pay full price to Dell. Here is one on Amazon reviews

This review is from: Genuine Original DELL Precision Latitude NEW E-Port Port Replicator with NEW PA-4E AC Adapter - DELL Accessories CP103 (Personal Computers)

One of the key attraction of Dell laptops, especially enterprise-oriented series like Latitude, is that they support usage of docking station. That makes usage of laptop much more productive both in home and office setting as you can connect instantly dock laptop connecting keyboard, mouse and two monitors (DVI and VGA). Kind of desktop on steroids :-)

This docking station is well though out and is pretty small and light. Much smaller then one for D620 that I used before.

This docking station (or port replicator to be exact) works very well with Latitude E5320 model. I experienced zero problems after a year of daily usage. Never froze laptop or did anything bad.

Additional power adapter is big, but can be used with laptop too as it has the same plug. I once misplaced a regular one and took this for the trip. So its existence saved my day.

Provides five USB 2.0 connectors. It also has one self-powered eSATA connector.
