Note: I bought a Dell Inspiron 7590 2in1 laptop that converts to a tablet. I bought this doc as it was recommended by the Amazon sales algorithm of "Frequently Bought Together."This docking station is in fact compatible with my Dell laptop and does work as designed, but it does not offer the features I thought it did. The two features I thought it had was the ability's to power my laptop and pass data back and forth to my laptop all with one cable. This dock does not do that. The docking station that does this connects to the laptop through a USB-C cable, not a USB-3 cable. Also, the second feature that I thought I was buying was that the docking station is only a 60 Wat AC adapter. I thought that could power my laptop at my desk, and then I would be able to use the AC adapter that came with the laptop as a "travel adapter." Unfortunately, this is wrong on two points: First, the dock does not power my laptop directly through the data cable, and Secondly, the laptop I bought requires a 90 Wat AC adapter. This means the AC adapter that came with the dock, only powers the dock, and the AC adapter that powers my laptop must be used at my desk and on the road. Further, this means crawling under my desk to plug and unplug the AC adapter every time I need to take the laptop with me. That is a hassle I would like to have been able to avoid. (Many a time I have left the house only to have found I forgot to bring my AC adapter. It is better to have an extra one that always lives in the laptop bag.) As a final note, I am not returning the dock just yet. Before you can use this dock it requires a driver download before first use. On the download page, it asks what OS you are using? Windows, macOS, Android, Chrome OS, or Ubuntu. As I said earlier, it does function as designed. I likely will be able to use this on a different device. Hope this helps.



I initially purchased this unit in December, 2018, for use with a Dell G7 7588 Computer, running X-Plane 11. It worked fine for several months, and then one day after not having used it for a week, it stopped working. No amount of playing with it could restore operation. Although it was past the return date, Amazon sent me a new one. 8 months later the second one also quit, and Amazon offered to have them both returned for a full refund. Meanwhile I ordered a Baseus Triple Monitor Docking station. While waiting for the Baseus, I did some research online, and someone suggested unplugging everything from the Dell, and then just plugging in the computer cable, followed by the monitor cables. Lo and behold the Dell started working again. I tried the same procedure with the first unit, and it worked fine as well. What I did find, however, is that with two monitors hooked up to the HDMI outputs, and the third monitor hooked up to the 20 pin DisplayPort output, the frame rate was only about 14-15 fps. If the third monitor is attached directly to the HDMI output on the laptop, the frame rate jumps to 30 fps.So the takeway is twofold:1) If the unit stops working, turn everything off, unplug all the cables, then turn on the computer and the docking station, plug the docking station into the computer, and then plug in all the monitors.2) For gaming, plug the third monitor into the laptop directly, so the docking station acts as a "dual" rather than a "triple." For regular computer use, plugging all three monitors into the docking station is just fine.By the way, Amazon said to just keep both working docking stations, and not to bother sending one back. Gotta love their customer service!



This does not provide any charging power to your laptop. You have to have your laptop charger plugged into the wall separately.

I bought this to ease connecting my Thinkpad with my peripherals. I did have an issue when I tried to connect my 2 Lenovo P24h-20 monitors. Using the docking station I could not get both monitors to display the proper resolution. After a couple of frustrating hours using different cords I finally got what I wanted by connecting one of the monitors directly to my laptop. Other than that this docking station works fine.



The Lenovo Thinkpad dock works great. I bought one to use for work at home during the pandemic. Everything has worked great with it for more than a year. There are good only two caveats I’ve noticed. One is that if there is a Lenovo software or firmware update for the laptop, be sure to check for firmware updates for the dock too. The second minor note is that the unit is very light and heavy cables can tend to pull it toward the back of the shelf occasionally. Good value for the money. I recommend it.



This product is great! It works with Linux Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, and allows me to plug just a single cable to get:1. Power2. Ethernet3. USB cam4. External HDMI 4K monitor5. AudioIn addition to a bunch of USB-A ports and one USB-C port. No drivers are required! Just plug and play!

This is one of those reviews that isn’t too sexy but is exactly what you need it to be. Works perfectly. Have not thought about it since installation. That’s all you need :-)



First day review of WD 19 dock with XPS 13 9380. I have had nothing but dock issues following the latest 9380 BIOS update. Problems include intermittent connection to monitor, failure to work properly with a simple USB switching hub, and computer shutting down repeatedly requiring force restart. I followed all instructions when connecting this new dock and had the same issues. Then I came across this article:Dell USB-C and Thunderbolt Docks (WD15, TB16, TB18DC, WD19, WD19TB, WD19DC, D6000) - BIOS Settings and Driver Installation for TroubleshootingThis article will guide you through the installation and basic troubleshooting process for Dell USB-C and Thunderbolt Docking Stations WD15, TB16, TB18DC, WD19, WD19TB, WD19DC, and D6000.Last Modified:13 Mar, 2020Article ID:SLN308303I followed the instructions to update the BIOS settings, and the dock now works properly. Be advised that NOT all of the options mentioned are available in the 9380 BIOS including “enable USB power share” and “allow USB-C dock support”. For now, the dock is working. I did need to plug the USB switching hub into the front USB port on the dock. I hope this helps and good luck. DELL could be a bit more clear about these issues.



I bought this because it is an exact model of the one I have in my office. The one in my office works perfectly with my new Dell laptop, both supplied to me by my employer. When I bought this additional WD19 for the home, it has resulted in 4 for 12 in terms of the laptop booting normally vs. not booting normally.Everything from Windows 10 crashing on boot, to the Dell laptop reporting no bootable option, to no video, to no keyboard and mouse detected (although wired to the WD19), etc. It has been a long and very frustrating day trying to get this WD19 to work. Without it, laptop works just fine. I will go into the office and perform a series of power ups and downs to see what the office unit (employer provided) reliability is.If the unit in the office works, I'll return this at home unit.

Out of the box, this is really simple to connect and power on. The labels are clear and easy to read.I use it with a ThinkPad T470, and it sees everything I connected just fine.One thing to be aware of is this device appears as a USB hub in Windows 10, so some device drivers have to be modified.Audio is one example, meaning you'll find yourself adjusting the Lenovo USB Audio if you plug USB audio into it.Monitors, the same thing sort of. You'll need to use the provided software driver for your video card as some of the Windows settings no longer work. Not a big deal to many people, but I wanted to mention it.Right away there was a firmware update for this dock and some driver updates I had to install before it recognized everything I plugged in to it.The USB hub thing is important since if you connect a USB hub to this dock, Windows may push back on you and tell you there isn't enough power or resources to power a hub from a hub.Once all updated and configured, it works perfectly. It took me about 25-30 minutes to get it all done.I paid $250, which I think is too high. But there is nothing else like this out there, so I had to get this one to cut down on the cords and cables all over my desk.Overall, I am glad I bought it and it's an essential part of my desk now.



I'm using this at home at a shared workspace that my wife and I utilize when we work from home. I have a Lenovo X1 Yoga gen 2, she uses a Surface pro 4. We purchased this since it offers connectivity via USB-C for my Yoga, and USB-A for the Surface pro.It works fairly well for both laptops, though a bit disappointed that DisplayLink is used when connected via USB-C. My Yoga is still powered via USB-C through the dock, which is nice, just no straight through video.I was expecting DisplayLink for USB-A. But can understand the technical limitation using a single connection for both USB-C and A. It would have been nice to have a dedicated USB-C port to take full advantage of capabilities. And a separate USB port for legacy devices.In all DisplayLink performs pretty well, but I do notice some lag from time to time.



It does everything it is supposed to do. It was all pug and play. My E15 Lenovo is hooked up via the USB-C and that powers everything from the dock. Very cool technology this USB-C thing. I have two 4K monitors plugged in and they work perfectly. Very pleased.

I have purchased several of these new Gen2 USB-C docks and I really like the features, but the reliability just isn't there. A couple of them have had issues with the Ethernet connection to the network (not related to IP pass-through), and another with the monitors coming back on after going to sleep. I have updated both the drivers and the firmware of the docks but this doesn't seem to help. I wish these were more reliable because I do prefer them over the old style mechanical docks, but am hesitant to purchase again.



With running multiple screens and having a lot of accessories it is nice to have a hub that can do it all. I do with that it could handle all of it's display ports being used while the HDMI port is being used too.



When I had to start working from home and only had a small screen laptop, this fit the bill for me. The only drawback is I wish it has a few more USB ports. I was able to turn my little laptop into something that is productive for work as well.

WD19 docks work well. Traditionally use it with Dell business class 12" to 15" laptops. USB-c from dock to laptop charges laptop and connects monitors, usb devices (web cameras, keyboard/mouse/speakers, etc. I've had some issue with laptop not supporting 2 very large (24") high resolution monitors simultaneously - both connected via DP. Connecting 1 monitor directly to laptop via HDMI resolved issue for me, but won't be available for laptops with only usb-c ports. There are technical articles at Dell's website explaining the issue (related to not using DisplayLink technology).



Doing IT support I worked with these in a business environment, liked the build and sturdiness, wanted to use my laptop's GPU so I bought one for home use.I have a Dell Latitude 7480 and for years I've used a Dell D6000 dock. The D6000 is truly universal working with USB 2/3 and USB-C, charges a Dell laptop up to 65 watts, but uses a Displaylink video chipset, requiring the laptop's CPU to work harder to render video, leaving the system's GPU useless. It's pretty much rock solid but that CPU load is a huge trade-off if you don't have to.I really want to like this dock and I'm rating it three stars because I'm holding out hope. But it seems like all I do is fight with it. First, it is limited by USB-C's shortcomings, which even now as a "standard" is lacking. If the computer doesn't support video over USB-C (Alternate Mode), it can't be used. There is no video chipset in this dock - video is just passed through from the PC. And of course, if you don't have a USB-C port, and some systems do don't even support charging over USB-C, it's kind of pointless - the D6000 is more appropriate over standard USB, and far cheaper.Second, I had problems right off with my Viewsonic monitor on USB-C not waking up. I updated the dock's firmware and that seems to have been solved. But hot plugging the dock to the laptop doesn't always work out. Only a cold start properly initializes everything.Now (and it might be because of the recent Dell update to my laptop BIOS), the dock doesn't wake up when plugged into my laptop while it is turned off. The light on the USB-C connector does not turn on and the dock's power button doesn't work. I have to open the laptop and use that power button, then the dock wakes up. After that, upon system shut down, the dock can be used to turn on and off the laptop repeatedly. Everything works as intended - until you disconnect it to carry the laptop away. This weirdness just started gradually.I like that I can use my 38" QUHD monitor, I can get full use of USB-C's bandwidth, and I really like the build quality of this dock, the power supply and most importantly the cable. The upgradability to TB is intriguing. Charging always works great, it is aesthetically nice on your desk - doesn't look cheesy, the power button, when it works, saves wear and tear on the laptop's hinges, Dell provides firmware updates, and the power supply is more than ample.But the entire system, much like USB-C itself, seems far from prime time. Just when I think I've accepted the quirks and created my own work-arounds, these "features" change.I am hoping that future firmware updates, as well as improvements in USB-C will make this into a great product. I will also hold off on the Thunderbolt 3 upgrade now that Thunderbolt 4 is emerging. It'll be interesting to see how Dell handles that. The integration with Dell's product line makes it promising.



Dell WD19 180W Docking Station delivers enough power for my Dell laptop. Installation/set-up was easy. I would have liked to have a VGA output and a few more USB outlets.

While this docking station is functional, it's awkward to use … getting the laptop seated at just the right spot to activate the lock and connect it to the network and peripheries.



I had to get a new laptop so I figured I'd get one of these too and I was excited to get this dock since it had USB-C support. I love the idea of just setting it on the dock and sliding the port home and boom you're good to go!When I first got the laptop and docking station I'd had an old 24" monitor that didn't have USB-C so I didn't pay close attention to those ports. However, when I got a new Dell UBU3818W ultrawide that did I was seriously disappointed to find out that the two USB-C ports on the back didn't support video, just charging! I know I know tsk tsk to me for not reading the tech specs closely enough. What the heck Lenovo??? Now I'm looking for a new dock that WILL support USB-C video.That said, I've not had issues as some have written with it lining up or being sensitive with clicking into the USB-C port on the laptop. Worked well for me so far and have had it for almost two years.



I got this for work a few months ago. I have a p52s that could not handle more than 1 monitor no matter what adapters. Lenovo tech recommended this docking station and I have not had any issue with my triple monitor set up.

The hub itself works great. Its nice to have everything going through 1 single cable.My office setup is made of 2 monitor and 2 computer hooked by a Display Port dual-monitor KVM switch. When using this hub, my KVM doesn't recognize the EDID information and the monitors disconnect each time i'm switching from one computer to the other. My setup is working fine with my original "HP 2013 UltraSlim Docking Station". I returned the device.



Works well with HP Dragonfly. It’s expensive though, and other docks work as well.



Satisfactory product.Pros:It has all the necessary ports required for office/home desk.Cons:I cutdown one start only because length of usb c connector cable. It could have been little bit longer.

I love this thing so far. The two cable dream is finally a reality! What's always connected: Keyboard, mouse, ethernet, 4K DisplayPort monitor. Not that demanding, really, but it works fantastically for all of those things. Periodically there will also be a 6 TB external hard drive, headphones, and an SD card plugged into the front and everything continues to work perfectly. So far it hasn't gotten too hot (except when I had the laptop sitting between the eGPU and this dock. The cooling situation was definitely not ideal, but even then it only got warm to the touch.)I haven't plugged anything USB-C into it, so I can't speak to that functionality. All of the other ports have operated at the speeds that I expected.The construction is nice and solid. The enclosure acts as a heatsink, so it can get kind of warm to the touch, but I haven't burst into flames from touching it. No burns or even 'Ow!'s. (Not owls.)The only minor, basically insignificant complaint I have is that it can get a little back heavy with all the cables pulling on it, which makes it lift a little into the air in the front.Oh, and the space gray is a pretty good match. You can almost tell from the terribly lit picture I've attached. (The space gray matches all my dust, anyway.)EDIT: Still love this thing, but I have a couple of more points to mention. First, the volume from the headphone port is significantly higher than from the Macbook Pro's built-in audio jack. It also won't automatically switch to the TS3 Plus input when you plug headphones in. It has to be done manually from the sound preferences.I also found that the charging support driver on their website doesn't seem to be compatible with macOS Mojave. When I install it and reboot, I still don't get fast charging to my iPhone. Upon further investigation, it looks like the kext it installs doesn't even get loaded. When manually loading the kext, the functionality still doesn't work. Hopefully an update addresses this, but I don't find it worth dropping a star.EDIT (2021-05-05): All good things must come to an end, I guess! I've had this for around two years now. It's become extremely unreliable. Oftentimes it will start to connect and disconnect at random. Sometimes you can fix this by pulling the power cable and waiting a minute, but other times it continues its disconnect dance.I also question the USB ports. Recently, when I try to update an older iPad through the Finder, I get an update failed message that forces me to factory restore. I tried a few different cables but it still failed. But when I plugged it directly into my Mac Mini, it worked flawlessly the first try.I've updated to firmware 44.1. Running macOS 11.3.1. I don't know if it's software related or what but it's definitely no longer trustworthy, so I'm reducing my stars to 3.



This dock has been issue free for a month. I arrive at work plug in a single Thunderbolt cable into my MacBook Pro on a VESA floating arm and all of my peripherals including my 24" 4K display come to life. I have Ethernet from my work network, USB, Headphones, display, power and even an SD slot all coming to life without any hiccups. When its' time to go to a meeting, I can unplug and 3-5 seconds later the MacBook Pro is ready to sit in a meeting with me for a few hours for note-taking. I've never had to power-cycle this dock or re-seat connections. It just works every single day for 8+ hours a day without fail. Of course, I wish it was smaller to come with me on trips but this will live-on at my desk and I hope for many years of benefits from this dock.



When I got the docking station, set it up, and got it plugged in to my wife's PC laptop, a ThinkPad, hardly anything was working. Only the display worked. The network, USB ports, and audio (speakers) were not working at all. So called CalDigit support, and they told me that I needed to get the Thunderbolt support software going on the laptop. I was a little disappointed in them ringing off after that, since I'm a fan of the school of support where you stay with your customer until they get things working if you can.Okay, so I went to Lenovo support, and downloaded new Thunderbolt software and firmware and installed them. Still nothing, all it said was that the "Thunderbolt software can be uninstalled". Okay, well that wasn't too useful. So I decided to try Lenovo "Vantage", as a stab in the dark. Installed that, and it installed new Thunderbolt firmware, software, and a new BIOS. Took some time, but when the computer rebooted after all that, and I plugged in the Thunderbolt docking station cable, I finally got a window where I could "approve" the docking station and all of its devices. Once I did that, then the devices connected to the docking station started working.While all the devices connected to the docking station are now working, there are still some problems. Like a couple of the USB ports don't seem to work, but that may be the device that I was trying to plug in, not the port itself. I do like the vertical form factor as opposed to the horizontal docking station that I'm replacing where the audio (speakers) device stopped working.At this point, I can recommend this docking station. Seems to be working well, much better than the one that it replaced.
