FAQ & Answers
Which Nitro 5 do you have? There have been a bunch of them over the years... It looks like that HP device requires a special port on the side of the laptop in order to work, so it wouldn't be compatible with any Acer product.
I have the Nitro 5 An515-54.
No then, the HP dock will not work.
Okay, so what Dock station will work for at least 2 monitors? I have mever used this before.
OK, your Nitro AN515-54 has two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB-C gen 1 port without DP Alt mode. Any of the USB 3.0 docks that support two displays will work, and some of the USB-C docks will as well, though the cheaper of those all require DP Alt Mode. The one I'm using on my laptop right now is https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08Q3JLB94, but that might be a bit much for your needs. This one https://smile.amazon.com/Monitor-Universal-Splitter-Compatible-Chromebook/dp/B08PV132WJ seems to give the same video specs or close to it for a fair amount less. I can't say that that second choice is a best choice because I haven't tried it myself...
