    "I needed a few extra options for my D3100 last winter and I bought this after seeing some reviews. I was not disappointed. The dock allowed me to connect to a lot of different displays when I was traveling and doing presentations."

    "The best docking station I've used, and it uses USB 3.0 which is so much faster than my previous rechargers. Best thing is I can take it with me on business trips and it's durable enough to withstand the occasional fall to the floor. I couldn't live without it!"

    "This is a very basic docking station for a laptop, it helps that it has a DVI port which the laptop does not have. It's a bit bulky though so it might not be great for traveling."

    "It was very easy to install the drivers and it runs everything well. I run it from a USB 3 port on my laptop. In the station I have an 8 port USB hub plugged in (with 4 peripherals in that: Keyboard, wireless mouse, etc), and an external monitor and speaker set. All works well through this station and, when it's time to disconnect my laptop for use elsewhere, I just unplug the one USB (and laptop power) and I'm off. I don't recall if it is supposed to be "plug and play" but it is. When you need to add a peripheral for just a while, the 2 USB 3 ports in the front are very convenient."

    "Doesn't work with my LG Laptop. I bought this back in 2017 and I'm still having problems with the display. Every time I plug in my laptop the port is detected by my operating system but not the display. I've tried contacting customer service. "

    "I needed a dock for my laptop, so I decided to check this one out, the reviews looked good enough. It's kind of flimsily constructed, to be honest. The connectors feel a bit loose when you plug stuff into them, and I worry about the long term durability."
