To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's really nice HP have a proper dock for their business notebooks. We have about 25 notebooks which are a mix of Elitebook's and ProBook's (depending on power user or standard user) and the really nice thing is this dock is universal which means hot-desking is no problem and everyone has standard kit and we have no day to day problems. Most of our docks drive 2x monitors and work perfectly. The only thing to watch for is that the laptop has HDMI output and the dock has 2x DisplayPort (AND 1x VGA) so ensure you have the right cables for it!
The notebook locates easily onto this dock compared to some horrible Dell ones we used to have and it works well. No complaints. A TIP is that there is a firmware update available for this dock which HP hide well so ensure you update this. I cannot link to this on the review but the HP SoftPaq number for this is sp100099 so please search for: SoftPaq sp100099 and you should find this firmware update yourself which is latest to date :) I hope that is useful for some people!!
After initially giving this a 5 star review I have had to edit after 4 months use. First one of the locking pins broke so I had to tip the docking station upside down so that the pin dropped and I could lock my laptop into it. Then all the ports seem to have stopped working, it doesn't recognise my monitors, mouse or keyboard anymore so completely useless. Such a shame as initially was really good and suited my needs
Bought this to use in home office during current working from home situation. Bear in mind there are several variations and it's important to source teh correct type. This item is solid, functional and arrived very quickly.
This fits perfectly and does the job very well. You plug everything in the rear and then just place your laptop in and lock it, really easy to take your laptop out just click the lever to unlock and then there you are on your way again.
The dock works perfectly fine. Only dropped a star because condition was described as 'used - like new' and it had sticker glue all over the visible part, which needed some work to clean up. That's the only thing that didn't meet my expectation. Otherwise, seems to be a very good deal.
