Product Reviews
Lenovo ThinkPad Basic USB 3.0 Dock - docking station is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with Windows 10, no so much with Windows 7 My Lenovo X1 Carbon (3rd Gen) had Windows 7 when I first got this dock. It loaded the drivers and started working right away when I plugged it in. Configured a new network connection over wired ethernet, and set up my monitor all on its own. Great! Then I connected/disconnected a few times... when that happened my Audio service stopped working. I put in some workarounds, but those interfered with the hotkeys (no idea why)My employer (who manages my laptop) had a Windows 10 upgrade available. Once I updated all the problems went away. I now have a fully seamless experience using the dock. Only gripe is that it's a little too light, so it gets bumped around on my desk a little bit by other cables. That's a super-minor gripe, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install It was plug in and go. No issues and has been working well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it is made for... As I see the reviews I think people have too much expectation from this unit. It is a huge benefit that it can handle 2 monitors while you have also your laptop screen available, so basically you have 3 desktops to merge as one large extended workspace. I found it very useful for my graphics work, and it came handy especially when my micro HDMI port died on my Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop and could not attach external monitor anymore. I do not know who was that idiot who designed a micro HDMI onto this otherwise perfect laptop... It also has a speaker out port in the front, so you can plug your headphones in it and that will mute down the outside speakers (if you have) immediately. I thought that higher resolutions will be available like true 4K but it goes only until 2560x1440... that I think a bit limited but overall I really happy with it. Frankly, I would never spend $200 for it, but I got a used one for $60 + spent $25 dollar on new cables and power adapter, because that was missing from the seller's pack (normally it is the part of the original package)... I am overall very happy with the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not charge laptop Bought this dock for use with my X1 Yoga (2nd gen). The dock doesn't charge the laptop! Lenovo needs to be MUCH more forthcoming about that little detail. I read through the description before purchasing, but I guess I missed that point. It didn't even occur to me that someone would make a dock that doesn't charge the laptop. (That's the #1 feature I'd expect from a dock.) Other than that, the dock seems to work fine. But I wouldn't really recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not specified docking station does not charge New thinkpads are charged through a port that is at least physically the same as an USB C. I was unpleasantly surprised the thinkpad is connected through a USB B. Also, in general one expects that a docking station also charges the notebook. If at least it was clearly stated the docking station does not charge, it would have been better. Indeed the docking station does what it is supposed to do, which is very little.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It helps, but could be better. I didn't read the discription clearly or I would have realized that it does NOT have an HDMI port. Very suprising. There is only a single DVI out. If you are used to running multiple displays you will sitll need to run a separate cable to your labtop, and you will need a $6 DVI to HDMI cord. Otherwise it works as you would expect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, But not as good as it could be This docking station was everything that I was looking for, but with one BIG exception. It will not charge my laptop! Why make a docking station that doesn't do one of the most important details that most people want in a docking station? Because I knew in advance that it would not charge my laptop, I'm happy with the purchase, but I still wish that the charging solution was available.
