Rated 5 out of5 by fromSolid build. Delivers exactly what you wantI've been using this every since I received my Surface Pro 3, and it's ideal for home base. I'm running multiple monitors on it, and it really makes the SP3 a perfect desktop, which just happens to fold up and detach in a couple of seconds when I want to roam around as a tablet or laptop.One thing I didn't like was that the power supply cable ONLY works with the dock and will not play double duty as an extra power supply cable to the SP3 directly.I don't even know how they would do that, so it's a very small negative to an overall resoundingly successful addition to the SP3.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromTRANSFORMS INTO A REAL DESKTOPThis is probably thee 1 most important accessories I have for my Surface Pro 3. I am a developer and I spend a lot of time writing code, testing in virtual environments and make big use of VMWARE. I have been able to attach a monitor, which works extremely well, and most importantly, I am able to connect my external hard drives as an extension of the unit and use it as a true desktop. I have only one gripe and that's with the way the seating works with the tablet when it's attached to the key cover. Other than that it is a must have for those that really need a full featured desktop. Simply open the 2 side piece, seat the tablet in the grove then close the 2 sides and then off you are.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromPORTRAIT MODEIt does not work in portrait mode !The beauty of a tablet form of a laptop is lost if you only compare its use to a laptop that is only used to type.A good example is reading a book or even better a a4 series of Word documents.How is a landscape only dock useful fot that. That also goes for a landscape only kick stand !! You can't think in old ways to avoid these questions.The accessories after market has many swivel covers for apple and android tablets that are not that good. A major innovation would have been to invent a dual portrait / landscape kickstand and dock. This is what stops the very good SP3 being a world beater. Think about it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMust have accessorySuper simple to use and connects/disconnects easier than any full size laptop docking station than I've had to work with at the office. If you want to use your SP3 as a desktop, and why wouldn't you after spending the dough on something with this much horsepower and versatility, the docking station is a must have. Very well deigned, nice compliment of expansion ports, holds the device at just the right angle, works like it should.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromNot a tablet anymore on the Dock!Great device! I admit It has completely replaced my desktop. 2 external USB drives, 2 daisy chain monitors, Ethernet cable, mouse, keyboard,..... I love it! Same set up at home and in the office. Not very convenient, but it will do. Only one big Problem? Once it is on the dock your surface is not a tablet anymore! Try to use the pen to take handwritten notes using Onenote or Evernote when the surface is on the dock? Try Drawing??? or even highlighting a text you read. The position makes It very awkward! The surface screen is not very useful when you have external monitors, but would have been nice to be able to lay it flat on the desk with little tilt for handwriting. I know I could connect devices without docking station, but here we are talking about Docking station. It would be a world class device if you could tilt the screen and dock it like most laptops with a snap and then release it with push of a button!

Rated 1 out of5 by fromThis Dock Will Make you Suffer - very buggyRead the blogs and you will see lots and lots of Microsoft customers having problems with this dock particularly with video outputs. In summary the dock has a lot of problems driving monitors. There are also a lot of hangs of USB devices plugged into dock. Simply put it does not work. Very poorly engineered. Rumors of firmware updates to dock fixing things but that is not true. Instead of this dock, you are better off getting a decent powered USB 3.0 hub and a spare power supply for your desk, and plugging the three things (USB, mini-DisplayPort, and power) directly to the Surface.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromExcellent Dock, needs a few tweaksThere is no more stylish desktop dock on the market. It works so well, and the snap in/snap out feature is very useful and smart.There was a problem, where speaker sound would not work when my SP3 was in the dock (minus 1 star). I had to manually switch the playback default to the SP3 to get sound. A recent update claims to have resolved that. . .Also, the left side has a strong magnet to hold the pen/stylus. a very nice feature.Overall, fewer exposed wires and very easy snap-in, snap-out usage. Quite nice.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromYou have been warnedI have the Surface Pro 3 and it is phenomenal. I just love it. This docking station, on the other hand, is junk. Simply junk. The mini-DP doesn't work, not a single USB device (1.1, 2.0, 3) will enumerate on any of the ports. It does, however, charge the device - most of the time. Basically, a $200 iffy charger. Never even tried the Ethernet because I returned it so fast. Look online, not many people happy with theirs. It appears that this just isn't cooked enough. My advice, buy it locally because you are more than likely going to need to replace it.
