I was able to set this up on an XP machine without issue. However, the video driver would not load. Contacted Targus and was told they were going to "try" to put out Vista drivers for this dock. Don't buy if you plan on using Windows Vista

I would not recommend this product to anyone running Vista! I don't know how it would operate with any of the other MS operating systems because we haven't tried. If Targus could correct the software or find a DETAILED fix for MS Vista then maybe they would get better reviews. Until then I wouldn't recommend this product.

My Targus Express Dock Experience

by danh@msicems.com on 7/2/2007

I bought this product with the intention of finding a non-proprietary solution for docking stations. I tested this docking station with a fairly high end HP logo'd Compaq nc6320 utilizing XP Pro for an operating system. You must load the software driver package that is furnished with the Targus docking station onto the machines you will be docking with. Once this driver installation was performed, all devices attached to the docking station were identified and we have had no hardware issues to date. The Targus station is what seems to be basically a glorified USB hub. We had an external USB hard drive, a pair of low cost Harmon speakers, a USB optical mouse, USB keyboard, and a 19" flat panel display attached and our laptops found these devices efficiently through the docking station. The adapter for the pcmcia port was a little difficult to insert into the HP laptop but eventually, without force, I was able to fully insert and seat the adapter. Read More
