Pros: Adds the following ports with any compatible laptop:
4x USB 3.0
1x RJ45 Port
1x locking port
1x Headhone jack
Thunderbolt and power connector
Cons: Oh where do we begin. How about:
-The "dock" gets insanely hot.
-During undocking and redocking any connect DP monitors will flicker (only remedy is to unplug each of them and plug back in)
-Network signal dies intermittennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnlyhroughout the day.
-Wireless keyboards and USB sticks get "stuck" (see above's typo).
-Charging of iOS or Android devices are extremely slow.
-Despite USB ports being USB 3.0 compatible, their transfer speeds to USB 3.0 devices are that of 2.0.
-You need not one, not 2, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut 5 drivers to get the "dock" to work.
As for the support side:
Well that is pretty simple, there is no support from HP, other than download the HP Softpaq Manager and update the drivers - which mind you are mostly out of date, as the vendors likely have more up to date drivers.
Prime example of how bad their doccccccccccccccccck really is.
Don't waste your money on this garbage.
Other Thoughts: - I would not recommend this product to other people.
- I would not purchase it again.
- If one thing would change, it would be to have HP make a working dock.
This review is from: Kids Light Weight Shock Proof Handle Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
Pros: Its got a really "foamy" like feel to the case. Easily shock proof with a couple exceptions. (See cons)
Handle is nice and can accommodate even the largest of hands.
Cons: Its made in China... and you can tell. The hole line up is actually off by an inch on the sides.
Very! bulky. I get we are aiming to protect the device from those nasty tumbles and drops but it almost requires you to hold the handle to even use the device.
The exception with the shock proof is the flat back and front. If the device would ever fall like a slice of toast butter side down, it would surely crack or break something.
Other Thoughts: Its cheap. It works for now and we already have plans on replacing it with something else, that is made by a more reputable manufacturer.
Overall, it just works if you want to go cheap.. Its foamy and soft to the touch. Be aware that the button holes might not line up and if you have a complex about these things, I would pass.
I can confidently say I would only recommend this to someone that is looking for something cheap.
Pros: *Closed case.
*Comes with extra plugs for the head phones.
*Comes with neck and wrist lanyard.
*Wide range of colour choices.
Cons: *Adds more bulk to the phone.
*Buttons are awkward at best and you really have to push hard for the power and capacitive buttons.
*For some reason has speaker holes in the back of the cover, when the speak for the Note 3 is on the bottom of the phone.
*Screen plastic doesn't fully seal so it gets bubbly near the edges.
*Extremely hard to pull from notification bar since the case rides the edges of the screen.
Other Thoughts: So here is the thing. Its not a LifeProof Case but is a nice runner up. Its very square so it can be a pain to hold sometimes but other times its not so bad. The fact it comes with and has a hole for lanyards is really nice. I find it really funny there are holes in the back of the case for a speaker, yet the Note 3 doesn't have a speaker there, its on the bottom of the device. The textured back is really nice (I am a fan of the faux leather feel, not so much the look). It comes with extra goodies that mikes life better and I really like the screw in headphone jack. It has a hole near the end to hold the plug so when you take it out, you didn't lose the plug for the head phone jack area of the case.
The one thing I really hate is the buttons. I am not a fragile guy and I have to push on the power button to make my phone sleep, really hard. Most times I have to dig my nail into it. The capacitive buttons are kind hit or miss, while the home button works flawlessly.
Getting to the charging port are is really nice and there is plenty of room so you don't have to worry about lining up the plug with the device perfectly.
Overall, not a bad case. The manufacturer could slim down the case a bit more and change a couple things and they would be in the running for a legit LifeProof competitor.
I also want to point out that Otter Box makes the Note 3 bulky as hell. This doesn't do that so much, which makes it a winner in my book.
