    Hello and thank you for your time.

    I'm a gamer and a student...I've recently got the Razer Blade 14.

    I know I cannot use Thunderbolt.

    I need to connect a keyboard, mouse and ethernet to my Blade.

    I have a BenQ XL2411 that ony has HDMI and DVI.

    I could replace the monitor but mine is fine for my needs at the moment.

    Could someone suggest a docking station or USB-C hub that I can leave at home so I don't have to connect all those devices all the time.

    I read that docking stations have their own display adapters and are not good for gaming.

    If that's the case could I still use a dock or hub and only connect two cables?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Check Dell D3100 port replicator - USB-A but have bunch of ports included with Ethernet and up to 3 monitor setup (1xDP, 2x HDMI) - never had problem with them, they're expensive, but sometimes you can buy cheap used one.

    There's also Tripplite USB-C dock (dual display), but never had this for tests.

    Yes save your money and don’t get TB3 docking since it can’t detect (at least on my case) Razer Core for docking use case. I use this from my old blade 14 2017 use. It has anything you need and I don’t see unstable performance, it even increased the performance compared to internal monitor since it’s bypassing optimus (all ports on blade 14 is directly connected to nvidia gpu).
