Dell Laptop Docking station6/12/2012
Dell XPS laptop doesn't use a conventional docking station. It hooks up to the Targus with a cable. I'm having a few problems: when I close the lid, system shuts down, even though hooked to the docking station; difficulty with video - display shows up on external monitor, pop-ups show up on laptop screen; not enough ports on the docking station.
Product does not work well with new Macbook Pro, but i have other uses for the product.
Great Value and Product4/1/2012
This is the exact same docking station I had seen advertised elsewhere from $89 - $129...for less than $50.00. Great bargain. However, a bargain is not a great deal if the product does not meet your expectations. This item not only met, but exceeded my expectations. It was simple to install and the entire process took less than 5 minutes. Regarding the other reviews comment about the sound issue; I too had no sound. That was easily fixed after calling the 800#. I merely had to go to "Control Panel", "Sounds" and select the laptops speakers....since I did not have speakers connected to the docking station.
NOT as good as the laptop...8/2/2011
I bought one of these via Sony just 3 weeks ago to go with my new 3d 'F' laptop and all of a sudden I got no sound throughput. I checked all settings, even reinstalled the software and nothing. Just to be sure, I orded one through buy.com, it came in only a very few days, and I simply swapped out the 'old' one and I have sound again. For a +$100 dock, this one bites.
