As many people I'm coming from a long history with Lenovo and their awesome standard docks they've had forever. I was not a big fan of the USB 2 dock but we have a few in my office and they haven't caused me any headaches as an IT guy. This one however..

Pros:
Once you get the drivers and firmware worked out this thing is pretty nice. I'm an IT guy, so this hasn't been too problematic. Worst install was on an X1 Carbon that I'd put back on Win 7 myself from a Win 8 Factory install and had issues with the USB 3 port. I found that this device actually works over the USB port too, just at a reduced performance. This helped me update the firmware and other things before realizing that the Intel software for USB 3 on the X1 is problematic. Can't fault the dock for this one.
Sleek and sexy.
So much USB 3
All the ports you need really unless you need dual DP or HDMI. Dual DVI is fine for my business needs

Cons:
Had one bad from the factory out of 5 so far.
Have to update drivers and firmware for it to really work.
With a lot of cables plugged into the back, it starts tipping. They did a nice job of side to side stability, but no front to back stability. It doesn't fall over but it definitely tips backwards.
If I had to get one for home and wanted surround sound I'd go with the Dynadock. Also, due to the problems I've had in house with this one I'm going to get a Dynadock U3.0 to see if it works any better.
Not user friendly. This is a freaking dock. It NEEDS to be user friendly. If I get frustrated at times after doing IT work for 13 years then I feel really sorry for home users who get a bad one or are having driver issues.

You'll probably be fine with this dock. Just remember a few things, at least with Win 7.

I bought this with the knowledge that other people have had some issues getting it to work, but it is working great for me. My basic steps were:

1. Plug everything in
2. Install Lenovo's driver on my X1 (worked at this point, but with some lag)
3. Install the 0A33970 firmware update (fixed most lag)
4. Install Lenovo's USB 3.0 Host driver (no lag at all from this point on)
5. Install DisplayLink's driver over the Lenovo driver

And then for the Surface Pro

6. Install DisplayLink's driver on the Surface Pro
7. Unplug my X1 Carbon and plug in my Surface Pro

And everything just worked. There is a little bit of lag with the Surface Pro, but after using it for a couple hours, it is barely noticeable.

Right now, I have two 24" 1080p DVI monitors, USB keyboard, USB mouse, USB VoIP phone, Ethernet, and speakers plugged into the dock and everything fits together perfectly. I can move between the two computers with no issue, and the swap only takes about 10 seconds to finish.

For those who have tried this combo and had issues, you may want to redownload all the new drivers and firmware and give it another shot.

**Update**

Been using this daily for a couple months now and I have to say that I am still quite happy with how well this works. I work the kind of job where I switch between the dock at my desk and just the laptop at meetings at least 5 times a day, and the whole setup swaps solidly every time.

My new X1 Carbon works fine...until connected to this dock. Numerous network connection issues, mouse delays, monitors are fuzzy and have delays. Very disappointing. Did not buy from Amazon but regardless of seller, this dock is not something you want.Hope Lenovo comes up with a different solution.

This is an amazing product and I give Lenovo and Display Link 5 Stars for their part, but before I start with the review I just don't understand why this product does not have more that 1 to 2 stars on it, I mean this is not a bad product and is actually better than my Targus Docking Station. First of this Thinkpad Dock has 7 USB 3.0 Ports and one is dedicated to charging a USB device (ex. iPad, iPod, iPhone, etc,), it also features 2 DVI ports (note, that one of the DVI ports is DVI-D, meaning, its DVI Digital and can not be used with a DVI to VGA converter as the other DVI port can), also it features a Gigabit Ethernet Port (thanks to USB 3.0 now internet speeds are faster than before), and finally there is a Headphone/Microphone jack in the front for audio purposes. For my testing I wanted to try to put the USB 3.0 to its limits (since my USB 2.0 to VGA connector was the worst product ever) so I ran 2 HD YouTube videos, while transferring a 8.25 GB Torrent, and the dock ran fine with no lag, crash, or errors. So far so good! Furthermore, I wanted to put this dock to its limits (as a test run) so I ran Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Mutiplayer and Combat Arms, and surprisingly it ran with not lag or problems! (Do note, that this is a business dock and this is not really designed for gaming so if you want to buy this for gaming purposes use this money to buy a video card.) Overall, this is a really nice dock and I would give it 3 extra stars if I could for: having a dedicated charging port (in this case for my iPod 4G), a dedicated on and off switch on the top for power saving and turning on the computer from sleep mode, and how the video (that is ran by Display Link) is superb, with no problems or BSOD (as one other reviewer stated). So get this product if you want a nice USB 3.0 Docking Station solution for your laptop! (Note my tests were done using a Lenovo Ideapad S405 laptop with an A6 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 500 GB HDD)
