This Item: HP UltraSlim Docking Station 2013 - docking station - VGA, 2 x DP


Total Price:
HP UltraSlim Docking Station 2013 - VGA, 2 x DP is rated 3.48 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hardware We use many of these for our work at a large medical center. The dock works well and it is easy for the users to dock and undock the laptops. I do agree that the ports do need to be brought up to more current configuration as many monitors are HDMI (digital) and it would be great to add a USB-C or two to the dock. I would say that if you are purchasing a new laptop, it is time to sunset the VGA port, as this is old technology. As far as the other reviews that give this dock a 1 star, I would not agree with, as the laptop/dock should not be moved and not sure what is sharp on the dock as it is plastic and really easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elitebook 840 G5 & G6 works perfect with this Ultra Slim Docks This Dock compared to the G2 version is a more robust connection and less moving parts. I like it because it's not driven by USB driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read This - Pros and Cons w/ HP EliteBook 840 G3 I can only speak to my specific model laptop. My employer provided the docking station with the laptop as a remote workstation solution. After two months of use, here is my take on the pros and cons. Pros: Slim, Minimal footprint, Display Ports work perfect with my dual screen setup, External displays work, Audio out works, USB works, Boot time not impacted Cons: Does not support mic input, required display driver update to resolve external displays recognition issue - laptop display had to be opened and closed to send the video output to the external displays, does not use the same power supply (PS) adapter as the laptop. Overall, I like all the USB and Display Ports. Perfect for my workstation. It's easy to lock and unlock the laptop from the docking station. If anything changes, I'll revise my rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive die off around 2 years This product is great when it works, but after 2 years of using these for our entire office (i.e. ~45 units), we are experiencing massive and wide-spread die off of the ports, meaning the connection to the monitors stops working completely. None of the firmware updates do anything, and after speaking to HP support we are left to conclude that these simply aren't built to last longer than a year or two. Given the high price point compared to universal docks, these are hardly worth it and should be a hard pass unless you like spending $160 on cheap plastic you'll throw out in a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works OK I bought 5 of these for my office last month. They work well enough and are certainly lightweight, unfortunately, with the HP's I purchased (at the same time from the HP direct sales rep), the HDMI port is covered by the docking station, and the docking station does not have an HDMI port. This requires a monitor to be connected by the more bulky blue VGA connector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for initial use just a few weeks old I haven't had my personal one for very long but it was seamless to use going from the one I have at work to this one at home. The one drawback is it covers one of the USB ports on the side of my HP Probook laptop. So much for seamless design from the maker of both products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from design did not work with all models cannot understand how does HP design team could manage to release a product that actually blocks the side ports (including one of the USB two ports) of the laptop, cuasing me that I must disconnect and re plug the device that I had on that port. If you are the one who runs to a couple of meetings in a sigle day, this feature may cause a little bit of frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do NOT purchase I have had three of these docking stations and they have all had the same issue that I see other users have experienced. If I take my laptop off the docking station, on return one or both monitors will be blank or blink or fuzz causing immense frustration. After spending expensive hours with IT trying to work out what the issue is we finally work out it's the docking station...but it's gone past 1 year so on the support center there is no help available. soooooooooooooooo frustrating

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual DP ports are a ruse I bought this particular dock because it had Dual DP Display ports,plus a VGA port, making it appear that I could run 2 remote monitors plus use a DP-HDMI cord to also feed a HiDef TV as an addition video display for a total of 3 remote displays. Well, this is just NOT possible with this dock. it will let you use the VGA plus DP-HDMI, but the 2nd DP port can't bu used at all if any other monitor is connected. I tried every imaginable setup possible, DP-VGA adapter, DP-DVI-D adapter, but there is no apparent way to feed more than 2 remote displays with this dock. I'm not sure why they even have the 2nd DP port, since it does not appear to work at all. Perhaps if you have 2 newer style monitors with DP in ports, it might work, but I can't even find monitors with DP ports. Maybe this is coming down the road, but this Dock misleads you to think it can do more than it actually can. I also can't imagine why it doesn't have an HDMI port so you don't have to buy a new cord or adapter to feed HDMI sources. I am using the Dock with a brand new ZBook 15u. Disappointed. My 8 year old HP with an old USB-3.0 dock had more remote display capability than this does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from @ display nightmares Don't event think about using two displays with this dock. Multiple different configurations fail to work with any reliability. Second display port is window dressing and is completely non-functional. It is unbelievable to me it is still on sale 3 years after introduced without addressing the display problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice docking station, some issues The slim design of this unit is nice on a cluttered desk and allows you to maximize the depth of your workspace. I encountered an issue with my external monitors which requires a firmware patch to resolve. I also found it difficult to find out how to lock the laptop to the docking station. Apparently you need to have a specific locking cable and pry the plastic cover off the right side if you want to lock BOTH the docking station and the laptop with a single security cable. That's inconvenient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended but design flaws The product has all necessary ports including 4 USB3, RJ45, display ports, 3.5 mm jacks and VGA but.... 1. blocks one of the 2 usb ports in my EliteBook G3 820, so essentially you get 3 additional USB not 4. 2. blocks air/reduces ventilation because the laptop sits on the big flat docking station with very less air gap leading to accumulation of the heat. The laptop runs much cooler without the docking station.

Sometimes after that has happened all applications running gets moved to the primary monitors. Do not plug in headphones to the docking station, sound will then become terrible. I have four colleges with the same problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy this. This is the worst docking station I have ever owned. There are no guide pins so you have to work and work at it to get it in place. My old docking station was under a shelf, so I just eased my laptop in the small space to the line up pins and done. This docking station I have to remove the shelf EVERYTIME in order to line up and dock this laptop. it also does not connect or wake up well with the remote monitor. often I have to remove my shelf, open the lid to the laptop to get it to wake up. I absolutely hate this docking station, but I'm stuck with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product makes your desk work area manageable I work from home and use a laptop for work. This docking station allows me to work in a less cluttered area since all my cables are now located in the back of the laptop. The HP docking station is thin and does not take up much room either! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blocks USB-C The huge slab of plastic with power button and eject slider blocks the USB-C port on the laptop, and the dock itself does not have a USB-C port. Plus; the eject slider has some nasty sharp edges that will hurt your fingers if you are not careful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dock, great features, super slim This is an excellent dock. The USB features are numerous and the displays work well. I use the laptop for one screen and then plug in two others. The dock is super slim and light, I love that. It's exactly what I wanted. I bought a quad-monitor stand from Bargain Hunt for $22! Now I am set. My speakers and my peripherals all plug in and I didn't run out of ports. The design is very elegant and streamlined. I am getting another one for downstairs now that I know this one works so well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issues with Displayports We have hundreds of these docking stations at our office. The work well as long as you don´t try to connect a 4K display to it using Display port. The 4K diplay either does not get any signal at all or the display just "flickers" There is another version of this docking station with product number B9C87AA that has only one display port connector instead of two. That one works with the 4K display without any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs some updating As previously reviewed dock is not able to work with remote displays very well but is possible. It does have 2 ports and a vga which lead to thing it should run 3+ monitors with no issues. Not the case. we have found we must use 1 display port, 1 vga, and buy a HP graphics hub adapter vga to usb to get all 3 to work. We have HP monitors all able to accept USB A/B, Video, VGA & DVI but this is the only way we have made it work. wish I could add more than the 3 I have to this but would require more graphics adapters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up thumbs down these docking stations are great when they are working. They do not have a long life. Our company has 16 and I would say we have had to replace half. Being used every day their life is roughly 18 months- and HP does not offer any kind of support after that period of time. HP has the Worst customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slick and Quick Connectivity This docking station makes connecting simple and easy. My Elite Book sets right in place, a simple slide of the lock and push on the power button and I'm up and running. The port connections across the back make desktop arrangement simple too. And disconnecting is one slide and lift and I'm on the go. Love it!

I am using 1 HP 1080P DP display, 1 Asus HDMI 1080P display (DP to HDMI converter in use), and 1 HP VGA 1080P display. This thing is awesome for my workstation needs (I wish I could afford 3 identical monitors but hey).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features but treat them gently. I have approximately 30 of these deployed for about 1.5 years now and they have been great for the users. No issues with multiple displays as most users have 2, one VGA the other DP and they work great...until now. After about 1.5 years and passed the 1yr warranty, the users with the most dock/undock usage have issues docking their unit. It seems the construction of the screws that hold in place the plastic tab that supports the little "L" shaped tabs that lock the laptop in place break off from their base preventing the "L" tabs from rising far enough. A little super glue/CAA can repair most. Remind your users to dock/undock carefully and not forcefully to save wear and tear on an insufficiently designed stress point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poorly designed We have had many issues with these. Poorly designed hardware. While laptop is on docking station, any slight movement of the laptop will cause mis-connection issues. i.e. display flickering, power not charging, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No HDMI, no standard lock cable I have two screens with HDMI. I cannot connect any of them because the docking station has only 2xDP ports. I cannot use my old lock cable, because if I introduce it in the small hole that look is to be used for locking the station+the laptop...the laptop can simply be removed as it's not locked. Is this hole of the docking station designed to lock only the docking station itself? I need to buy another cable to lock both laptop and docking station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HDMI port is blocked What genius at HP designed a docking station that blocks the side ports on the laptop ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limited Monitors I just received this docking station. Previously I had one that plugged into my USB C and that allowed 2 monitors. THen I plugged in a wall monitor to the HDMI. This station only has 2 DP and on VGA port and when the laptop is docked you cannot access the HDMI or any other ports for that matter. SO when docked you have not access to USB C ports on the laptop OR the dock. Pretty disappointed for this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs to retire This very aging dock is okay if you have a low resolution monitor under 32 inches as it does not allow for larger higher resolutions. I learned this when taking the dock home during quarantine. It would not allow my 4k monitor to go above stanard resolutions. Leave this one and buy the newer USB-C/Thunderbult dock, they are much smaller, sleeker, and can push full resolution & power through a single cable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP UltraSlim Docking Station 2013 Good dock, easy to use and user friendly. Compatible with majority of HP EliteBook. The docking post are made of plastic and can break off easy if you're not careful. One was shipped with a broken post and we had another one that broke within 3 months. 3 out of 50 or so that we purchase is not bad but I really think they could have reinforce the docking post with a better material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP Docking Station Overall the docking station works well with very little issues. The design works with The G1 all the way to the newer G4 laptops. The only qualms with this piece of hardware is the fact that it blocks one of the USB ports on the right side of the laptop. Other than that, it has served our employees well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great docking station What can I say it is a docking station and everything works. I like the slimness of it as well. I have 3 of these and they all work flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lacks Quality Unfortunately we are stuck using this model for our ZBook's and they have been riddled with issues since the beginning. Video flickering, ports going bad, and general lack of quality have made me a sceptic on the value of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dock It has a great design and is light weight. It is just under 2 pounds. I is light enough to throw in your carry-on bag if you travel frequently. When docking and un-docking all the monitors and other attached items work the first time every time. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's an average dock It's the only option for HP elitebook series and it's... OK. I run an office of +100 and have seen many of these docks stop working or ports go bad on them. 2 DP ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports are nice but the VGA port is useless and should be replaced with HDMI support. The power cable not matching between the dock and their elitebook line is just plain silly. But, alas, it's still better than Dell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldnt update firmware, can't use two external monitors hours and hours on the phone with HP support and a CDW support call. Have a docking station now that doesn't work at all, and another that works but can't have two external monitors on. Brand new Elitebook850 G3, new dock, new HP monitors...couldn't get it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from too many problems Look it up before you buy. Even once i got it working unit failed in less than one month. HP is sending new one, but these things have firmware and DP compatibility problems. Beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half in, half out on the worthiness of the product I've seen a lot of reviews stating that the life of the dock is short, and I've not had that problem and I've had it for over a year. I had one at a previous company and had no issues with it. I'm able to utilize a 3 monitor setup on this, 2 DisplayPort and 1 VGA. I've used two different KVM setups as well, and the dock has performed decently on both, when paired with my zBook 15u G3, but not without issues. However, I'm still not able to determine whether the issue lies with the laptop or the dock. The audio port on the back of the dock generates a heck of a buzzing noise when speakers, headphones, or earbuds are plugged into it. I've tried everything, up to and including placing a power conditioner before the UPS, installing a ferrite ring over the power to both the speakers and the docking station, changing UPSes, and still no joy. I've ordered another for my house, so I'm going to see if maybe it's the same issue at home, but the jury is still out. I've also had issues with the monitors acting up when going from docked to undocked and vice versa, but I've heard that has a lot to do with the AMD/Intel video combo in the laptop, so I've just accepted that as a laptop issue. All in all, I've not had one fail, but I also wouldn't call it a rock solid docking station either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP Ultraslim... I chose HP laptops over Dell due to the fact that Dell's docking solution was just a USB attached box versus the platform you click in and go that HP offered. However, over the course of the year there have been issues with the hardware becoming unrecognized by the PC, turning off monitors keyboard and mouse. Once a unit exhibits this behavior it repeats every 2 days where users are typing away and everything goes dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No HDMI The docking station covers up the HDMI port on the EliteBook 1040 M G3 laptop and there is no HDMI port on the docking station. Terribly designed. I would only buy this if there is no other alternative. In our case I will be returning and not using a docking station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staffs favorite dock I've used HP's previous dock designs, several USB docks, and several from Dell. This is the best design available. I have purchased several dozen for staff, and only had one issue. HP replaced that dock after a firmware update did not resolve the issue. I have had no issues with the sliding mechanism by any staff, ever. If you don't abuse your stuff, this should last the life of the laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Just Break I manage an enterprise with over seven thousand employees. I go through many of these. I have found the failure rate to be at about %40 of docking stations. Which is to say that if I buy ten I can expect at least four to malfunction with in 3 months of purchase. I have found the sliding lock mechanism to be quite gimmicky and unnecessary. This is the part that will usually go bad causing the slide lock to not push into the laptop connector correctly. Typical users will attempt to force it and it breaks. I still buy these cause I have no other choice but a heads up, they are not reliable docking stations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Have found what other user has posted where failure rates seem high, however I'm not as luck when they fail as seem just outside the 1yr warranty. The slide lock seems to be the biggest issue as we had several failures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly connects I'm very happy with my docking station and the versatility it gives me, to have a second monitor, mouse, and keyboard - everything remains plugged in when I have to take my laptop offsite. Quickly sets everything back up when I return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but not great I bought the HP slimline docking station, it’s a bit of a challenge to dock it correctly in terms of lining it up with the connection on the laptop. I do like the weight and ease to move if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Docking Station This docking station works great for connecting two monitors to the laptop. Removal of the laptop from the station is quick and easy for when you have to move around or travel with the laptop. DisplayPorts are a little modern for our office but adapters work well with this product. I will say this though, the description needs to be updated to include compatible models such as : HP Elitebook 735 G5, G6, Elitebook 745 G5, G6, EliteBook 755 G5, Elitebook 830 G5, G6, EliteBook 840 G3, G5, G6, Elitebook 850 G5, G6 are all compatible with the UltraSlim docking station. Had to do a chat to get that information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blocks Desired Ports Who in there right mind designs a docking station where half of the ports are blocked on one side? That wouldn't be a big deal if it provided a USB-C port for the one it blocks. I mean seriously, either put the USB-C port on the opposite side, provide one on the dock, or dont block half of the ports on the one side with the docking station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Reliable, Highly Expandable Docking Station! I have used three of these for over 5-years (one at office, one at home office, one in briefcase for travel/long meetings/training). I have never had a single problem. Very easy to setup, dock/undock. I run three monitors, USB wireless keyboard/mouse, B/T (USB dongle) headset, HD video camera/speaker, external speakers, and external hard drive on both my office and home office desks. I have 2 ea. 6’ DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter and 1 ea. DisplayPort to VGA adapter cables; and every available connection on these two docking stations used and, as mentioned, have never had the slightest issue. I use the traveler to hookup a full size Bluetooth keyboard/mouse, a traveler B/T headset (USB dongle) for my soft-phone, and carry several DisplayPort to HDMI/digitalVGA/DisplayPort cables to connect the docking station to whatever displays/projector/etc. I need to use, or can find. I highly recommend this excellent tool if you have a lot of accessories and displays, move around between offices and long meetings like planning events, etc., and your electronic presence is one of the most important tools in you have, and you push it to its limits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hassel-free docking solution. I bought this docking station to avoid the hassles of plugging in the basic adaptor. Although it does not attach to an earlier model laptop stand that I want to continue using, it does sit on it firmly enough and functions well.
