- The Surface Dock 2 worked great out of the box on a Surface Book 2 and Book 3. Packaging is the same as the older dock. The new dock is similar in shape and size but 10mm deeper. Like the old Dock, the power supply is the same size as the Dock itself - MS should really include photos of the power supply in the detail page so customers can understand just how large it is.
- The new dock uses the same 40-pin SurfLink connector as the previous Dock that passes along power, DisplayPort, and USB signaling (no PCIE here). The dimensions of the connector are exactly the same but the cable is ~80cm long (~12cm longer than the old dock). The AC/Mains IEC7 power cable is also longer at 1 meter - twice as long as on the old dock which should help with cable routing and positioning the huge 199W power brick (15.35V @ 12.96 amps!)
== Displays ==
[IMPORTANT NOTE]: 2x 4K60 monitors are only supported on Pro 7, Pro X, Laptop 3, and Book 3. Older models will only be able to do 1x 4K60 + 1x 4K30 or 2x 1440p at best. Microsoft's website notes this, but for some reason this info is not on the Amazon detail page.]
[NOTE #2]: For non USB-C monitors, you will need to get name-brand USB-C->DP1.4 or USB-C->HDMI 2.0b adapters/cables. Search for "active usb-c hdmi2 dp1.4 adapters dancharblog"
- Only tested 4K @ 30Hz and 1440p@ 60Hz so far and they worked fine.
- Based on the Synaptics VMM5220 DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC 1.2 which is the same chipset used in many competing USB-C/Thunderbolt-3 based docks.
- My only gripe here is the lack of built-in DisplayPort and HDMI receptacles. If you don't have a USB-C monitor, you can get USB-C -> DP 1.4 or USB-C -> HDMI 2.0b adapters but you'll need to factor those into your budget. Best to stay away from the off-brand adapters and stick with name-brand DP 1.4 enabled adapters/cables certified for HBR3 bandwidth. At the list price, it seems MS should have included at least one USB-C -> HDMI/DisplayPort adapter in the box.
== Power ==
- It does not appear to provide more than ~95 watts to the Surface Book 2 15" so some battery drain may still happen when playing certain games on that particular device. BUT this is so much more than the 60W that the old dock delivered so should be fine for 99% of users. It does provide ~120 watts to the Surface Book 3 15" model.
- With 79 watts reserved for power delivery to USB-C, USB-A, and various internal components, I don't think there will be any power issues
- Did I mention how large the power supply is? Its the same size as the Dock itself.
== Book 1, Pro 4, Pro 3 ==
- Although not officially supported by Microsoft, it seems to work OK with the Book 1 and Pro 4
- A Pro 3 did not work at all (battery failed to charge and there were Code 43 errors in device manager)
== Ports ==
- USB @ 5Gb/s worked OK. Did not test Gen 2 10Gb/s yet
- The USB hub is based on the Genesys DL3590 chipset
- I do miss having front-facing USB-A for thumb drives . Hopefully USB-C based thumb drives will become more widespread. Still, MS should has left one USB-A on the front so you don't need an adapter.
- It would have been nice to have a UHS-II/UHS-III SD card reader built-in - something that seems standard from competing USB-C/Thunderbolt-3 docks at this price point
== Audio ==
- Based on Realtek ALC4106 - nothing to get excited about
- A front-facing audio jack would have been nice
== Ethernet ==
- Based on Realtek RTL8153 1Gig
- Would have been nice to include RTL8156 2.5Gig Ethernet at this price point

Will update with additional test results across more devices...
This works for MS Surface Go, gen 1! USB C to HDMI seems to work with generic and quality USB c to HDMI devices.
Everything seems to work as expected. Plug in, let it install the drivers, then go!...restart may be necessary.
The dock itself has soft rubber(?) lining on the bottom to reduce sliding around.
The dock connects to your surface with the proprietary magnetic plug that's around 32 inches so your laptop or tablet doesn't have to be stuck near the dock.
Ethernet port works as expected.
Audio port is both speaker + mic ports in one (similar to your cell phone).
Two USB c video ports in the back so you add two monitors!
I would recommend if you need more than a tablet or laptop.
Detailed review -
I wasn't sure if this would work well for my Surface Go but I took the chance. I also was concerned about the USB c to HDMI adapter because i'm not as familiar with the USB c protocols and devices. Both turned out to work fine together. I have my Surface Go 1 docked now, with both my HDMI monitor and HDMI TV connected to this dock.
Setup was very easy. I just plugged everything in and let it set itself up. I did have to let it finish setting up and then disconnect and reconnect the connector. I suspect this necessity is a Windows thing, maybe a surface thing, because I had to do it with my generic hub as well. Reconnect it and it should work.
The HDMI adapter that I bought worked easily out of the box. An interesting thing that I found was that my generic USB c hub (5 in 1 or 7 in 1 type) has an HDMI out and that worked too! This USB c display protocol that this dock has may already be in our USB c devices that have HDMI ports. I checked my device manager and display adapter settings and it appears that the HDMI connections are working off the surface's graphics cards and not the external video card types.
The second biggest reason I wanted to get this dock was the Ethernet port that this dock has. My surface doesn't have an Ethernet port and I'm read that normal 7 in 1 hubs that have HDMI and Ethernet ports usually can't handle the data so I didn't want to spend the $ to find out later that I'm not getting the expected performance. I don't know how to tell how fast the Ethernet is working but I can watch a video over remote desktop with only a slight bit of lag on one of my HDMI connected monitors.
The audio port with both mic and headphones is important nowadays because of the video conferencing that I've been doing and this port works as expected. One thing that was interesting was that windows identified the device as USB Audio or Headphones (USB) but this is not a problem.
Final words, this is a dock, not a hub. Meaning, don't expect this to be portable. This is not a portable device, I think of this as a portability facilitator. It lets you be portable by putting all your device connections in one place AND adds more connectors and expands on what you can connect as well. It also has a power brick that is literally the same size as the dock.
If you want portable, then you need something more like a hub, but those hubs are not a great solution for permanent setups either because you might need to power it with a USB c port AND your surface will still need its power supply if you don't want to just run on batteries. Then you might also need your audio connection... This is really how my setup was before this dock. My hub connected to my Surface's USB c. it needed power so it was plugged into a USB power adapter. This hub also didn't work every time and I constantly had to unplug it or its power until things connected. My Surface's power connector was also plugged into my Surface and I had an audio connection for my speakers.
