Docking Station or USB hub for Y720. Which is better?

I thinking of to buy docking station if this available for Lenovo Y720 to get more usb's. I researched out of hell and not found compatible docking station for Y720.

 

Other option is the usb hub. I found one TP-link UH700 with 7 usb ports with external adapter. I found lot of positive feedbacks about this product. 

Here is the link: http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-5688_UH700.html

 

USB hub is cheaper I know: Approx: $29.99 ~ 9000 - 10000 HUF.

 

What do you think, which is better?

I'd also suggest looking into a USB C dock if you're also looking for display transfer as well. If all you're looking for is USB port expansion, that TP-Link one should be good.

Re: Docking Station or USB hub for Y720. Which is better?

I checked your advice. I didn't hear before about the USB C dock. This is new for me.
I'll check which will be better for me.
Do you have any idea which USB C dock is good for this laptop?
As I see only No name stuffs found on the net. For example: "OWC USB-C dock".
I don't trust these no name stuffs.
I'll check on the ebay, or aliexpress, maybe find something.

Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/HooToo-Adapter-Charger-Charging-Output/dp/B019R9ILTG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1...

 

Also, Lenovo has a dock: http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/docking/universal-cable-docks-usb/Thinkpad-USB-C-Dock/p/40A...

There are a bunch of other options; USB C dock is what you should be looking for.
