Rated 2 out of 5 by VT IT Guy from Works ok if you dont want to bring the laptop home It is a good dock if you want multiple monitors. Although, I am not impressed that it does not charge the laptop. The problem is that users take the laptop home, so they need a cord at home. Yes they can crawl around the ground and unplug the power cord and bring it home everyday, but not a fan-favorite with attorneys. You other docking station does charge the laptop, but it stinks with multiple monitors. It would be nice if you combined their capabilities and have a single dock that is good with multiple external monitors and charges the laptop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by evansgastro from Does NOT charge my laptop I recently purchased an X1 Yoga. I am extremely happy with the laptop. As part of the purchase, I added this docking station. I am a physician--I take the X1 into the exam room with me to get the history. When I return to my desk, I wanted to be able to plug in one cord to access a second monitor, a mouse, and to charge the laptop. This dock does NOT charge the laptop. I have to also plug in the charger, which is a simple process, but repeated many times each day, becomes frustrating. The additional cord sitting on my desk is also annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Toyz from Expensive hub Bought 3 weeks ago only to find out there's no product support... lame. Typed in my serial number and identified the product as "unknown" and no support options. Does not have the capability to do power saving features such as turning off the monitor after x minutes, does not activate screen saver and put my screen on lock etc etc even when i have the settings checked on the windows 10 control panel. Very poor. How does one go about returning the product when theres no support option to select? What a shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob Pinker from Meets Expectation I connected the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock - US to my Yoga 3 Pro. I plugged in a wireless mouse & keyboard, ethernet network and monitors and waited for about a minute and MAGIC. It all works flawlessly with no effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BakersfieldBobB from Great product with BAD documentation I purchased two of these units to use with our new ThinkPads we got for Christmas. Fortunately, installation was a snap. Plug in the power, plug in the laptop and other devices, and everything just worked! So...what's the problem? Documentation is almost non-existent, other than the large multi-language installation sheet. Many questions were left unanswered by the documentation and by the Lenovo website. For example, what kind of video ports does it have? One appears to be HDMI in the website photos, but what about the second one? It's a DisplayPort, by the way. When I asked on the site, one rep told me it was a DVI port, so apparently they don't know either. Another question - will it work plugged into a USB 2 port? I don't know the answer to that one. The documentation DOES give you a link to a Lenovo support site. www.lenovo.com/support/docks but that link is unavailable. The regular Lenovo support site knows nothing about the unit. The docs say you need the site to download the necessary drivers bu Windows 10 found them without it. I hope I never have a problem!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Tried 2, just doesn't work. Have now tried 2 of these. Haven't been able to load either onto my T450 with 64bit windows. USB hubs work fine, but no display capability. Also tried downloading the driver from manufacturer and it crashed windows when I attempted to install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sandspeck from Why??? I don't understand why this doesn't charge my ThinkPad... For 200 bucks why can't you include a cable to this. I thought for sure I misplaced the power cable. Every other dock I have owned has charged the laptop. I am COMPLETELY dissatisfied.
