This thing was pretty much plug 'n play. The only issue I had was I was using a bad ATX PSU that was causing my graphics card to crash randomly. A new PSU fixed it right up. The instructions are good but the translation is mediocre. It also seems to perform quite well, although it did bottleneck my RX 580 by about 30% (likely the limitation of the ExpressCard only having like 1x pcie 2.0). I chose to double-sided tape everything to a board to make it more portable, I'll post pictures eventually.
I would recommend to use an x230 it sims more compatible.
This solution is ideal to game on vacation, with that setup I can play on 3 screen without problems.
You have to have your power supply be on and have the atx setting on the dock be on(The atx switch is inside the dock, use a sewing needle to break the protective-ish layer and reach inside to turn on the atx setting). Turn on your laptop and insert the express card right as the dell or hp logo appears. (At this time if you are using an external monitor hooked up to your graphics card on the dock it wont show up) now go to device manager on your laptop if you see basic display adapter with a warning triangle you are almost done. Go and download the drivers for your card, once installed just restart your laptop and do the insert express card as soon as you see the hp/dell logo thing again and you should be able to right click on your windows wallpaper and see nvidia controll panel om your laptop/monitor. If you have an external monitor you may have to click on your wallpaper,display options, multiple displays, show only on display 2.
Now let me get to the troublesome bit, so they are very VERY sensitive to any sort of electrical interference so make sure you use it on a plug on its own cause in my case my electrical fridge would cause it to crash since I have the EC (expresscard) version I can hotplug it out and plug it back in but basically its unstable on Gen2. Gen1 works fine but it makes my 900p ultra settings of overwatch drop to 720p at lowest settings with still not a steady fps so Gen2 is what you want.
To minimize interference I've noticed several things. Make sure the eGPU is the only thing on the wall sockets helps ALOT and understand the limits of the bandwidth. Obviously my 1060 can handle overwatch at 1080p but the bandwidth limit of sending information from the same cable into the gpu and back to your computer will limit you to 900p on all games generally you might be able to get 1080p at 45fps-50fps but the low fps is from the bandwidth limit doing so just increases the likeliness of it crashing. The final thing I've noticed is that the 10 Series is unsupported on eGPU so you have to use old drivers which increases the instability 372 drivers or lower are your safe bet in the PCI-e configuration (375.65 on ExpressCard) and there are no plans of it being fixed so live with it. 900 series is unaffected by this which is why its much more stable and all future updates should continue to work.
The reason I bring up the stableness is because I have 3 gpus my 1050ti is more stable than the 1060 and I'm guessing cause it only needs the PCI-E power and no additional. After months and I MEAN MONTHS of issues I pass on my solutions to you.
Yes it does support it but drivers must be old and even possibly unsupported drivers from 372.50 and lower (375.65 on ExpressCard). 10 series is more unstable and cards that require more power will increase the instability on Gen 2 performance.
Understand the bandwidth limit and don't push the card if you notice FPS drop. Make sure the eGPU is the only thing on the wall socket no other things or it will be more unstable.
Reddit's eGPU subreddit will help a lot and the egpu.io forums are your friends. Good Luck.
I am using Acer Aspire V3-571g laptop running i7 processor. I am able to install Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750ti 4GB DDR5 graphics card.
I am now playing GTA V without any issue.

Remember your eGPU will only work under operating system. Outside operating system, say BIOS or any OS installation time, you need to use laptop integrated display.

Ps. This is an express card version review. There are I believe 3 other ways to connect this expgpu setup. I just find the express card one to be the easiest.
***Look for the ATX power switch slot*** Mine had the plastic still over it and was in the off position. used a screw driver to break/pry the plastic out and used a paper clip to flip the switch to on.
Connected power to 24pin, 6 pin, 8 pin to GPU. Plugged cable into dock and laptops express card slot, turn on PSU switch, turn on laptop, windows booted, installed drivers and done. Completely plug and play.
Silky smooth RE7,REmake2 on high @ 1080p, kingdom come 30+fps, (3520m I7,8gb ram,SSD laptop) PCIEx16 2.0 mode
27.5+mhs eth mining
Still testing things but it works very well.
*CHECK YOUR LAPTOPS COMPATIBILITY*
Notes on product craftsmanship, it's honestly a bit over priced considering some of the ports aren't even soldered on straight. Could have better quality control, but if it's at the expense of the customer it probably isn't worth it.
