5 out of 5 eggsDisplayLink works great

Pros: I use this with 4 Asus PA248Q's and a Lenovo Thinkpad Twist with Windows 8.1 Pro. Two monitors are connected to the DisplayPort and HDMI connectors on the laptop. The other two are connected to this device. It works are intended. Indistinguishable from the real thing as far as still images go, but unsuitable for video. This product uses a DisplayLink chip. I have used DisplayLink products for years and they work great. The only thing to know is to get the driver directly from DisplayLink's web page and don't bother with the Lenovo CD that comes in the box. Either keep that as a souvenir or throw it away. Just do yourself a favor and don't install it.

Cons: 2 DVI ports instead of 2 DisplayPort or HDMI ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Dock

Pros: This is my 5th or 6th unit I purchased. We use it in an office environment with different laptops. It's as easy as plug and play. Works with Win 7 and Win8/8.1 just fine. All the setups have dual monitors. We even have a Fujitsu Scanner plugged in to the doc with external HDD's and it picks them up super fast.

Cons: Display link software is sometimes sketchy.

Other Thoughts: Great product. Would recommend it to any one that is trying to run dual monitors from their laptop.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a great experience

Pros: Port replicator as opposed to just a USB hub. Great for hooking up everything BUT dual displays using DVI

Cons: CRAZY lag when using it to project onto 2 1080p displays using DVI. I'm using a Lenovo Yoga i7-3537U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and before using this port replicator I had only one external monitor hooked up (so laptop display plus 1080p external monitor using HDMI) and it was as fast as fast can be. The downside of this setup was too much desk clutter due to the fact that I was having to use a USB hub for pretty much everything else (wired ethernet, wireless headset, wireless keyboard/mouse, jump drive). I really wanted this to work so that I could have two full size displays and eliminate the mess.

Other Thoughts: Installation was easy, and it DOES work, just with some caveats.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with X1

Pros: Dual DVI monitor, plus gigabit LAN through single USB 3 port.

Cons: occasional lag on mouse

Other Thoughts: I had a Lenovo USB 2 port replicator with a single video out. I upgraded to this model to get dual DVI. I use this with my Lenovo X1 (pre-carbon) to connect to dual HANNS-G 27 inch 1920x1200 monitors, gigabit LAN, keyboard/mouse, scanner, printer, and plotter at my office. Amazingly everything runs through a single USB-3 connection to the X1. Video quality is excellent with no noticeable lag. Occasionally something gets out of sync. Turning the port replicator off and on again, or unplugging and replugging the USB-3 connection solves the problem. I like this so much that I bought a second one to dock the X1 at home.

2 out of 5 eggsslow

Pros: single USB 3.0 connection to laptop; no issues when connecting & disconnecting with laptop running. nice to have digital monitor connection, headphone jack, etc.

Cons: very slow. copying files from USB3.0 to USB3.0 external drives, both connected to the front of the port replicator shows 22MB/s transfer rate. that is beyond HORRIBLE.

5 out of 5 eggsThinkPad USB 3 Port Replicator

Pros: USB 3.0 and 2 monitor support. It was very easy to setup. Just download the latest software, install, and your done. There is no lag or graininess at all on the 2 monitors. This works great with Windows 8.1. I am using an HP Split X2 and am very happy with the ability to develop on a total of 3 screens. Even handles hi def video very well.

Cons: None so far. This really isn't a con but keep in mind this is for usb 3 capable machines. Performance may decrease if running from a USB 2 connection.

1 out of 5 eggsHigh Hopes, Endless Frustration

Pros: A good idea, if only it worked.

Cons: My experience using the USB 3.0 dock with a Thinkpad T430 has been very frustrating and my advice is to avoid it. My experience with Lenovo customer service has been even more frustrating.
The dock requires installing proprietary software that seems to be at least part of the problem. My dock would fail to properly recognize my external Asus monitor and my Sony TV - The Thinkpad had no problem seeing and identifying them without the dock. The dock was rarely able to see 2 devices at the same time, lost the connection randomly and seemed to contribute to other blue screen episodes. Attached USB devices experienced delays and occasion detachment.Disconnecting the dock cured nearly everything.
For some odd reason, Windows Media Center (I’m running Win 7 Pro) would only run in a window and not in full screen through the dock. Even then it would lag and freeze. I record and watch TV shows, so this alone is a deal killer. Using the Thinkpad’s Displayport or VGA outputs works fine. No amount of updating firmware or software was any help.
The dock itself is very small and turns into an unwieldy octopus with cables attached. The ports are oddly placed and pretty crowded. The power supply is bulky. It also runs pretty hot.
I think the problems are partly related to some of the teething pains USB 3.0 ports and drivers experience. Add some flaky firmware in the dock to the even flakier software from Displaylink, and the results are pretty uneven and disappointing. My Thinkpad has the optional Nvidia graphics card, and I think that the card and the Nvidia drivers add to the issues. Maybe someday all this will get sorted out, but I will be avoiding Displaylink related devices for now.
I didn’t get any sort of useful tech support from Lenovo. No one could address any of the specific issues, or seemed to have any knowledge of the dock. It took nearly a year of frustrating phone calls and emails to Lenovo to finally get them to replace the dock (twice), which was only a marginal improvement. I’m returning the dock and replacing it with a conventional Thinkpad dock.

Other Thoughts: This device may work better on other systems, especially ones without the optional video card and using only a single display. I did try it briefly on an older Toshiba notebook with only USB 2 and only one external monitor and there seemed to be fewer problems.
It seems like a rather expensive crapshoot.
