      I have been using this with my X1 Carbon for about 6 months now. I could not be more happy. I am running 2 1080p DVI monitors, USB powered speakers, keyboard, 1TB USB WD drive and wireless track pad without issue. I highly recommend purchasing an additional power supply for your laptop to pair with this device to make your life easier. I regularly unplug/plug back in my laptop while it is on or waking up from sleeping with no issue. For those having issues, follow these steps to enjoy the product as it was meant to run: 1. Plug everything in to your laptop 2. Install Lenovo's driver for the 3.0 Dock 3. Install the 0A33970 firmware update 4. Install Lenovo's USB 3.0 host driver 5. Install DisplayLink's driver over Lenovo For those having issues after following the above steps, you may try updating the following few things on your laptop. 1. Update your video driver. 2. Check for a BIOS update. 3. Make sure you don't have legacy port replicator software still installed.

      I have this docking station since 3/4 year...it started out okay...takes long time to connect (2-3 minutes) and you cannot work immediately...than it all got worse...now it takes half a day to connect...some driver issue...I have a new hobby searching for drivers & installing & unistalling them...If you want a thing that just does what it is expected to do and you don't want to look after this tís the wrong thing...If it works it's just great 2 displays extra...you can have the display from the laptop, the display from the mini-display port and aditionally these two displays from the dock...awesome...if it would work without any driver issues....

      Not worth the time

      By West5757

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Lenovo® ThinkPad Essential Basic USB 3.0 Docking Station:

      I ordered this when I bought my computer and after I set it up I was highly dissapointed. It is called a docking station without the ability to power the computer. I wanted a docking station so I could hook up in the office without connecting wires and then take the computer away when I needed to leave. My external keyboard does not work when plugged into the back of the station and the ethernet is horrible. I had to hook it straight into the computer. It is basically being used as a USB Hub.

      Caused Boot Errors with Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

      By TampaBusy

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Lenovo® ThinkPad Essential Basic USB 3.0 Docking Station:

      Lenovo recommended this dock as compatible with the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, but after two days of getting boot errors, I sent it back. Had to unplug the hub every time I wanted to close or power down my pc or else I got a usb boot error. It also didn't recognize my hdmi visio monitor with vga or dvi even with the driver. No hdmi ports available. Performance was slow and I only had a wifi keyboard mouse, 1 monitor, and Ethernet plugged into the hub.

      ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock

      By Gary

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Lenovo® ThinkPad Essential Basic USB 3.0 Docking Station:

      I can see from reading through the list that some have had problems. I'm not sure why. After I removed it from the box, I followed the instructions and downloaded the latest drive and firmware for the device and plugged it in. I'm using it with a Yoga 2 Pro at work and the Ethernet, VGA, and USB ports all work fine. The only thing I've noticed is that my Microsoft Natural 7000 keyboard does not like to have it's USB plugged into the device. So that gets plugged into the USB 2.0 port on the Yoga. Everything else I have used, thumb drives, hdd, backup, etc works normally. The system does a nice job of supporting the monitor too. No complaints on my end it much nicer working with all my normal desk components.

      It's not a dock!

      By Byclue

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Lenovo® ThinkPad Essential Basic USB 3.0 Docking Station:

      I'm not sure why Lenovo is calling this a dock. It's a port replicator and not a very good one at that.. This "dock" does not supply power to your laptop. No hdmi or mini display port? If all you need to is mouse keyboard and DVI monitor then get other brand that are better value.
