Unreliable

 

With plenty of other USB3 dock options out there, I suggest you try something other than this one.

Works as expected for a while

We purchased 4 of these for our employees (myself included), and after right around 13 months, 3 of them have partially failed (the fourth is showing signs of dying now) ; The units become very unreliable, requiring you power cycle them in order for...

Great to use with Surface Pro

 

it includes dvi to hdmi adapter even if you want to make a dual screen setup

I wanted to make my surface pro my desktop pc, so i bought this docking station, so far works great, has plenty of usb 2.0 and 3.0 slots for your needs, also has hdmi output, dvi and ethernet, works great on my surface pro, everything works as should

Sometimes there is a little ghosting and/or low framerate on the output via hdmi but is not big deal also requires to be plugged to a wall charger to be working so is not that portable, otherwise, works great

Spotty Performance

 

Switched to a Kensington sd3500v and it uses the same displaylink drivers. No problems in over 24 hours. I would say spend a little more and get the one that won't hang up on you.

Plugs and plays nicely on Windows 8 Acer w700. Downloaded drivers from Targus and it was working in under 10 minutes

Spotty performance. Cursor would freeze, network would hang. Programs would lock up

1.) Nice feel/shape

It's very light. Most people like this, but I don't - Explanation below.
