However, the MSI StarDock just edges ahead for general purposes. For just £9, the StarDock gets you four USB ports, two PS/2 ports and three mini-jack ports. The USB ports are only powered via the USB input rather than externally, but as we’ve mentioned, that shouldn’t be a problem. The PS/2 ports are handy for freeing mouse and keyboard cables if you’re using wired versions, while having a headphone port close to hand is convenient. You can only use the headphone output if you have a spare rear audio output, but the only major caveat is that Morgan Computers – the only supplier stocking the item at time of press – is charging an extortionate £10 for delivery (despite this, the price still compares favourably to the rest). If you can find it cheaper elsewhere, it’s even more of a steal.
