The HomeSpot Ethernet Media Docking Station for Nintendo Switch is incredibly compact and has a ton of features. You get four USB-A ports, an Ethernet port, USB-C power input port, HDMI out, and a 3.5mm AUX audio port.
In the box, you get the dock and instructions. You’ll need to use your current Switch AC adapter or get a good USB-C power adapter to make use of the dock. There’s actually an additional port and depression on the dock for the HomeSpot NSwitch Bluetooth Adapter – an adapter I have and actually like quite a bit – but with the recent Switch firmware update you no longer need a dongle to use accessories like wireless Bluetooth headphones (I use Apple AirPods).
The nice thing with this dock is that it’s very easy to insert the Switch, with zero chance at scratches, unlike Nintendo’s own dock. The dock keeps the Switch stable and leaves the screen fully visible for desktop play. Switches on the front let you go between portable and TV modes, as well as output sound to an external device using the 3.5mm AUX audio port.
This dock is fantastic. Other than not including a USB-C power adapter, this dock has all of the features you could possibly want. You get a bunch of extra USB ports, and, with the built-in Ethernet port, don’t even need a USB-to-Ethernet adapter to hardwire your network.
