5.0 out of 5 stars For the price, absolutely brilliant, 29 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro 13 inch Docking Station (Aluminium Unibody Mid 2009 Onwards) by Henge Docks (Accessory)
At home I use an external monitor, keyboard and also plug in ethernet as well as various peripheral devices and was fed up of attaching a multitude of cables so decided to look for a docking station. Not wanting to spend much having just purchased a mbp (2010 model), an external monitor and set up a media network, henge dock seemed the only feasible product.

My only advanced reservation was whether I would have any problems getting the cable ends to insert into their ports. Thankfully the dock is well designed and the cables are securely fixed in place meaning I have to apply very little pressure to dock my mac. This is an important consideration with docking as I have had experience of ports being damaged by a poor docking unit. I do not forsee any such problems here.

The henge dock is a little fiddly to set up but is a very slick and robust piece of kit and makes my office look less cluttered. After just a few weeks of usage I would be lost without it. I strongly recommend it.

Warning: Cables are permamently attached. The package includes 2 usd cables, a cat6 ethernet port and an audio jack but you will have to purchase an Apple mini display port adaptor (not the generic ones as these do not fit) as well as a spare power cable (the old shape one - these are available on Amazon). Although I could knock 1/2 a star off the rating for the dock not being able to use the new mag-safe power cable I will not as I am overwise very very impressed.

Oh forgot to mention, the packaging is up to the Apple standard which is always a joy.
