Took less than 10 mins to install and be working with the new attached monitor.
Top international reviews
This lets me do that, i run two 24 inch monitors plus the Laptop screen, keyboard, mouse, network and audio cables all through this dock. It swaps between my personal MacBook and my work Surface Pro. So i don't have to have one specific piece of kit for either setup its just power for the device and a USB cable. What more could you want in a dock!!! Also has the added extra of me being able to add another monitor should i want to appear more NASA like lol
This dock is multi-platform and works with Mac, Linux and PC and for £130 quid its a bargain.
Installation was the typical Windows experience, plug and play. It grabbed the drivers online and worked without a hitch. I use this on Windows 10 in case anyone is interested.
User experience is very good too, so far I haven't experienced any sort of lag or any issues for that matter.
The entire base of the unit is rubberised so it should grip to most desk surfaces quite well - however due to it's light weight any trailing cables at the rear of the unit can displace it if you're not careful. I would recommend using some sort of cable management to tie the cables to the desk to prevent this from happening. This is only a very minor gripe though.
My only disappointment was that I missed the fact that it can't support two 4K monitors at the same time, only a 4K on one port and lower resolutions on the others. I had looked at several and by the time I found "Ultra HD Triple Video" thought it supported up to three 4K monitors. Well, it does, but not with them actually at 4K.
It's true that had I downloaded the spec first or read all the questions the information was there but I think the description is misleading.
As far as its specification goes, it works well, I use the USB 2 and 3 ports and the Displayport to a 4K monitor running at 3480x2161 plus an HDMI port to another 4K monitor running at 2560x1440.
I gave 4 stars based on the 5 for quality and working smoothly but 3 for description.
EDIT 02/06/2020 - I wrote the above review back on Nov 2017. The docking station is still going strong, and has proven invaluable now I work and study at home constantly during the COVD-19 pandemic. Switching between the work and home laptops is simple with just switching over the USB cable from one to the other.
If you have a Macbook Pro 2013 and up, this is the docking solution for you!
I am used to multi screen environment and at home I use three extra monitors for my laptop.
I have been using my dock for 12 months and it simply works all the time. I have never experienced connection issues, flickering monitors, unstable network etc.
If I would be buying one now I would go for the Dell D6000
However at home I run Linux (Fedora 28/29) and I've had pretty bad issues with the DisplayLink drivers. From what I understand on Linux the DisplayLink drivers recruit the CPU to aid in graphical operations which leads to MONSTROUS CPU usage from DisplayLink. On my laptop (Dell XPS13 2015) I see CPU usage regularly sitting at 70-90%. This drops to 10% if there's no action on the screen but even the movement of a cursor causes it to jump to those high ranges.
This bit of kit works great and does its job well when supported by the correct software - but buyer beware if you try getting this working with Linux. Your mileage may vary. This isn't really an issue with the product itself, so I'm giving the product 5 stars because it's otherwise great.
I Can't really say the same about windows/Dell drivers - , big drivers download needed - sometimes forgets the dock drivers exist, when hotpluging after meetings - but quite stable in normal use.
But at the end of the day, its a smart little box if you want a usb3 multi monitor setup, and at decent price from the seller.
Then, it stopped working. Every time I plug it, Windows 10 shows "USB device not recognized" message. I have tried everything I can, including reinstalling/updating drivers, changing the USB port; however I could not make it work again. I am suspecting hardware failure.
I contacted the seller, explained the problem in detail; however they haven't bothered to reply yet. I am not sure what I need to do to prevent my £125 from going into the bin.
From the start, it’s worked great, and is a nicely compact bit of kit that isn’t taking up desk space. Just needed one AI ole driver download at the beginning which was no issue.
Personally, I’m running 2 HDMI monitors out the back which have both worked perfectly from the word go, whilst in the front 3 USB ports I’ve got plugged in a mouse, keyboard and headset. Everything plug & played without issue. And with this setup all running off the Dell D3100 I’ve got everything I need to run my home office. No complaints.
Here’s to lots more working from home when the lockdown is over 👍🏻
