5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy this docking station 17 Jun 2013
Size Name:USB 3.0 One Extra Display|Verified Purchase
We were using an older version of these docking stations at work so I was aware that these are handy. I also found out that all these things are more or less generic. There is a Displaylink chipset in them that does the magic and all the rest is like cosmetics. Given the same chipset, a Lenovo, Dell, HP or this Plugable are the same thing and in that comparison this one is rather well priced!

So what does it do? I have one office like desk with a huge monitor (1920*1200 resolution), keyboard, mouse, speakers, laser printer etc.. Put one USB3 cable in the Windows 7 Dell from work or the Windows 8 MSI for fun and games or the Dell Windows 8 tablet and it all works. Brilliant and it does not really get more easy and unlike old fashioned docking stations, these will work with loads of different computers.

A point to mention, this dock will also work on a USB 2 port but not to its full potential (this is mainly graphics related), standard office stuff works fine.....

Now when I got this dock a couple of months ago, the Windows 8 drivers (from Displaylink) were not mature... specifically the tablet would not even install and more demanding games on the MSI tended to give a jitter in the display. By now and this means 2 driver updates later, it all works fine.

For just the few that jumped the bandwagon, a window 8 tablet combined with this dock is interesting! The tablet gets reduced to a rather large and expensive mouse / track pad with a display that is operated by your hand and that is actually a great way of working with Windows 8.

So any complaints? Nah, this is a great piece of kit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple to set up 6 Sep 2013
Size Name:USB 3.0 One Extra Display|Verified Purchase
I bought this so I could link my new Lenovo laptop to my old DELL PC 27 inch wide screen Monitor.
I found the set up very easy & simple, the only problem I had was setting up the monitor screen to it as there were so many adaptors included, it took me a while to find the right combination.
When I did get the monitor up & running, I was worried at first as my monitor would flicker sometimes (only when playing games though).
I guessed that this might be down to the drivers & sure enough, after downloading the latest ones, everything is now fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable! Perfect for surface 7 May 2014
Size Name:USB 3.0 Dual Display|Verified Purchase
I've bought it as docking station for surface, the dual video ouput is very good, I've used two monitors via HDMI and DVI at 1920x1200, and it was as it was connected directly.

The same for the usb connection, both usb3.0 and usb2 ports are very fast, like the integrated port of surface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a reliable DisplayLink device 27 Feb 2014
By NHUK
Size Name:USB 3.0 Dual Display|Verified Purchase
Have tried a number of these DL chip based devices in the past, and with plenty of disappointment and problems. However, they seem to have got either the chipset, or the driver set, or both, just right in this unit. Reliable, fast speeds on the usb3 ports, solid display with no flicker and hardly noticeable frame rate delays when pushing 3d to an external monitor (dropped one FPS according to fraps on average) Very pleased, at last - makes a surface pro 2 into a desktopcomputer when you need it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for any laptop 11 Mar 2013
Size Name:USB 2.0 One Extra Display|Verified Purchase
I bought this as my laptop doesn't have a bespoke docking station. It works a treat. It gives me access to the network a separate monitor, keyboard and mouse. You don't even have to install anything as Win 7 discovers it and does it all for you.
