This product is simple and it works.
WLB
The product is not the issue, it's the reseller and their lack of customer service that I have an issue with.
rosenc
The unit is made of fairly cheap plastic which if you are just looking at it, you really don't notice it.

I couldn't be happier with this product. I own two other docking products for my Windows laptops, so I can't help comparing them to this one. I have a 4-way KVM switch controlling the Mac, the two windows laptops and a desktop, which I switch a lot. It is important to consider why you want a dock. For me, it is so I can easily connect the common monitor, keyboard, and mouse to my Mac. I want to do it easily and safely. The Henge Dock does that. I've heard some argue that it is not as rugged as most PC docking stations. True, but who cares? You don't need to toss it around and be rough with it.

Now that I have used both for a while, I'm absolutely convinced that the PC docks are overkill, and you pay for it. If you need a dock that lets you install full-size cards (video cards for example) maybe it is worth the extra money. But if all you want to do is hook your Mac to your monitor, keyboard, and mouse, this is the way to go. The design is genius: simple holder and slots to insert the cables into your Mac (all included, except for the power supply). Yes, it takes a few minutes to insert them and fasten them down the first time, but after that it works like a champ.

An added benefit is that the vertical positioning helps air flow. While my PC docks hold the laptop up a bit, you never get the full airflow like with the Henge Dock. I keep my laptops running in the docks for days at a time. I've had to replace one fan after it burned out. If I had airflow like with the Henge Dock I suspect it would have lasted longer. (No, Henge Docks has said they have no plans for a PC laptop version. Too many variations in where the connections are located.)

I couldn't be happier!

I'm so glad that someone finally came out with a docking station like this. There are two major benefits to its vertical design. First, it saves tons of space. Second, it keeps you from having to worry about wires shifting around -- gravity saves the day. This is especially the case for me, since my macbook sustained and water accident and will not work unless plugged in. I constantly had problems with the power cord being accidentally pulled, which has not happened at all since I've been using this product.

Just some FYIs.

The product comes with every cord you would need to utilize all your mac inputs. If you are using a non-mac monitor, however, you will still have to purchase the converter.

Also, there seems to be a general concern about ventilation. My vent is in the screen hinge, but there's enough of a gap that the fan is able to exhaust normally. I haven't had a problem with it and my computer is rarely turned off (and used at least 8 hours a day).

Verified Purchase
I bought this dock and was unimpressed when I took it out of the box--it's plastic and, while heavy, kind of cheap looking. but once I got it connected, I didn't mind it so much. The problem is in the connection to the monitor. It worked fine for the first month or so--although I had to wiggle my mac to get the monitor to kick-on. After a few weeks though, no amount of tightening or loosening the connections could give me a decent monitor connection. It would blink out unexpectedly, or, just before I threw it out, not connect for more than a second or two. it's a good concept, just bad execution. Don't waste your money.

Verified Purchase
A decent dock with one flaw, when you get all the wires and plugs secure and lined up there is nothing to keep the cables above the bottom of the dock. The issue is when you do pull you mac out of the dock you always lift the dock and the wires need to be re-positioned. Not a huge deal but it really makes it a pain for me.

Thanks

Update (20150223) - The doc works great for the most part. Every once in awhile the connections seam to flake out and if you undock, open the laptop, login and close/redock, it seems to be fine. Its not often that it happens.

The biggest issue I have found is the thunderbolt extenders are not actually thunderbolt but only mini-display. This means you cannot use one for monitor and one for network. You can only use it for two monitors (one per). Per Tech Support (i have not verified) its buried in the manual that this is the case.

The cables are two thunderbolt (display only), USB, Audio jack.
You have to provide your own power cable (this is very clear in the description).

Would I buy this again? In a heartbeat.

What would I do differently?
A) get a large USB hub (that way, keyboard, audio headsets, mouse AND a USB to Ethernet, etc. are on this hub. This hub does not require you to eject any of these components.
B) get a small USB hub (that you can plug into the larger one) that has a on/off switch that you can plug external drives into. When you need the drives, enable it, then eject it and turn off the hub). Prevents you from having to eject the drives every time you undock if you did not need the drive (which I dont most of the time).

Original Review:
I got this unit as I was frustrated with manually plugging in all of the cables every time I wanted to sit at my desk.

Every time I was getting ready to leave my desk, the following thought would hit me: "Is it worth the effort to take my laptop if I am going to have to manually unplug and plug everything back in?". This was decreasing my productivity and the entire point of moving to a Mac (from Windows at work) was to increase my productivity.
