The key benefit to this docking station is that it uses the new USB 3.0 "SuperSpeed" standard. This is the new USB port that is backward compatible with regular old USB 2.0 ports but also allows for MUCH faster data transfers (which is where the "SuperSpeed" label comes from). Old USB 2.0 docking stations are horribly slow because a single USB 2.0 port isn't very fast and it gets slower if you use that single USB 2.0 port for multiple USB devices, an external display, Ethernet, and external speakers. All those devices communicate with your laptop via a single USB port and the old USB 2.0 standard is just too slow. USB 3.0 resolves that ... assuming you're using a newer laptop with a USB 3.0 port.
If your laptop only has USB 2.0 then this docking station acts like a typical S ... L ... O ...W ... USB 2.0 dock. So, only buy this docking station if your laptop has a USB 3.0 port.
In addition, you should only buy this docking station if your laptop has integrated Intel graphics and NOT dedicated/discrete graphics from Nvidia or AMD.Read more ›
It is still an unstable product, even with the current (Jan., 2013) firmware and drivers. The audio out dropped more than once a day, so I eventually stopped trying to use it and now plug the speakers into the machine (a Surface Pro) when the dock is being used, ignoring the on-dock audio completely.
And then, about once a day, the dock just "checks out". The hardware is still there, but it's nonresponsive - any peripherals attached aren't really available. The more common case of this is the monitors connected (I'm using both ports) just get frozen with whatever they had, the USB devices slowly drop out (e. g. mouse and keyboard work, but then at some point stop), etc. To fix this you have to unplug the dock from the computer, unplug the power (which at the dock is annoying, because the plug has a sliding, locking connector), plug the power back in, and connect to the computer. Then you're good for another... day if you're lucky.
I am very close to returning this unit and trying a different manufacturer's one at this point. The only thing stopping me right now is the fear that since all of these dual-display docks are basically the same guts (DisplayLink), that I'd be swapping one broken unit for another.
UPDATE IN APRIL, 2013: The very recent April driver update (7.1) has made a substantial difference. I've now gone nearly a week without the sound dropping or the Ethernet dropping.Read more ›
For starters, I have been in the I.T. field for the past 20 years and have done more than my fair share of desktop support, so I fancy myself quite technically proficient and can solve most PC problems.
I give that prerequisite because this dock was a bit tricky to configure. It requires drivers and software to work correctly. Having used this model dock at work before, I knew that the CD that came with it had outdated drivers, so I went to the DisplayLink website to download the latest drivers from there. I ran the installation, and that went fine. However, Windows 7 SP1 64-bit still would not recognize the unit. I'd unplug the USB cable, wait, plug it back in, and I'd get the familiar Windows sound to let me know I've connected a USB device, but nothing happened. My external devices didn't work, but I didn't get any error messages or anything. Finally, after several different attempts (reboot machine, unplug USB cable, un-power and re-power the dock, plug back in to machine), I was FINALLY able to get it to recognize the dock. Just as an educated guess, I believe that the updated software I downloaded from DisplayLink required a firmware update on the dock and that is why it probably had to be power-cycled. Again, this is just my educated guess.
Now, once you get your system to recognize the dock, the rest is butter. The external monitors work fine, the network port works fine (at 1Gbps!), and anything else I plug in to the unit works as expected.Read more ›

My admin got me this station for my new laptop. I probably would not have purchased, per customer reviews. This thing is pretty much useless. Read morePublished 7 days ago by K. Grant
