I'm looking to hook up dual monitors to a Surface Pro 3 and need to purchase a display hub as both monitors must be run of the single mini display port out on the surface. I've rung around wellington (DSE, PB tech, Jaycar), no luck. Anyone know where I might source one in Wellington? If not, I'd really appreciate a URL link to a (reputable) internet supplier? thanks in advance

that one doesn't support mDP1.2 so you won't want that

This is one that I use and it works well

I assume you don't have DP1.2 daisy chain-able monitors?

and you don't want to use 1 DP out of the dock, and another out of the side of the device?

Thanks, 1 DP out of dock and one out surface works well.
