5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well with HP Pavillion 17".
Makes a less cluttered desktop with more USB connections. Really like the wireless keyboard and mouse. Haven't installed a hard drive yet.

Cons: No phone jack so have to keep plugging in phone line.

Lip in front requires handling laptop to open and close the cover.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat else could you want?

Pros: It turns a laptop into a desktop within a second (depending on how long it takes you to connect the expansion port cable) :)
A lot of USB ports. It is very convenient that it comes with a keyboard and a mouse - although not the best models but they do the job and are nice and solid. Great invention, especially for the price .

Cons: No DVI port, but the VGA works excellent on my 21.6" Samsung

Other Thoughts: When I connected it to the monitor, some noise interferrence appeared on the display. After connecting the monitor directly to the laptop, picture was nice and clear. I knew that cable and monitor were fine. Geek Squad told me that it had to be the VGA output on the expansion base for sure. Out of curiosity I connected the AC adapter to a different power outlet and the problem is gone!!!

4 out of 5 eggsStudents

Pros: Good Height, 1 Connection, Nice Speakers, Simple, Keeps unit a little cooler by impruving airflow

Cons: Cheap Keyboard, Buy a Saitek and a Logitech MX Revolution, keep the saitek at the dock and use the mouse allways.

Other Thoughts: It is cheaper if you are a student from the HP website. Otherwise buy here, newegg is the best.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: First off I bought this to use with my Hp dv9260nr laptop, which is a desktop replacement for me. You can use your laptop power cord to connect to the expansion base and once the cable is connected to the laptop , it keeps battery charged, extra usb ports builtin Altec Lansing Speakers, and it sounds excellent, plenty of extra ports usb, rca rgb, s-video and vga, ethernet and connection for the optional external hard drive.

Cons: No firewire, or media card slots but my laptop does.

Other Thoughts: Touch controls with nice blue lights for volume. headphone mute speaker, headphones and the power button.
Adjustable height and angle, makes this a great addition to the hp laptop
