Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat performance, though not cheapWith only one usb connection, and several usb devices, I needed some sort of dock/hub. My previous hub connected via usb, so would have 'dangled' from the usb port half way up the Surface screen. This device allows for a much tidier setup, and the cables are nice and long to position it away from my immediate work area. However, if you do purchase one, be prepared to update the drivers for it first. I had intermittent connection problems with my usb devices at first. To update you must connect the dock to the Surface, and then get the updates. After I updated, all worked perfectly. Very solid piece of kit.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromTerribleI bought the dock, hoping it would power a 4k monitor at 60hz. It does not, in fact it is even worse then the 4k support on the surface pro 3. Microsoft advertise that the surface pro 3 will drive a monitor at 4K at 60 HZ. It does not, neither does the previous dock, and neither does this one. The output even at 30hz was appalling the screen was flickering and poppingalso be aware that the display port on the dock is actually splitting one Mini display port, so even on a Surface Pro 4, which is supposed to be able to drive 2 4K monitors at 60hz will not drive them with the dock, you need to plug one into the surface and one into the dock. Pretty pointless.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromNot as specified when released...This dock was "announced" to the world as able to support two mini DP screens at full 4K. It does not do that, it is equipped in reality with a DP 1.2a splitter chip that only allows the max resolution of one standard 1.2a mini DP interface divided across two physical ports. In fact the surface connector is nothing more than a USB extender, mini DP extender, audio chip and power back to the surface device. Very dissapointing and no real improcement over the earlier dock. Please also the "magnetic" connector is weak and if moved sometimes disconnects. If you buy one be sure to load updates to it while connected to the surface as "out of the box" it has all sorts of issues!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromThree Screens on my Surface Pro 4I bought this with my Surface Pro 4 i7 fully expecting to have problems with connecting multiple monitors after reading the reviews. First I ran windows update with the dock attached and then I plugged in my mini DP to HDMI cable to the monitor and.............................nothing :-(I then plugged in an ACTIVE mini DP to HDMI adaptor and................................Perfect!Plugged in another ACTIVE mini DP to HDMI adaptor and the second external screen was connected. So I have the Surface screen and 2 HD monitors up and running and just one neat cable running to my Surface. :-)I have some mini DP to full size DP cables on order and when they turn up I will try them on my other monitors to see if they work without active adaptors but in the mean time it looks like that to use the dock you need ACTIVE adaptors.Going to get another dock now I know they are good for my office.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromI'm returning mineIt could be that the problem is with the drivers, but for my SP4 this wasn't fit for purpose. Problems:i. Couldn't wake from sleep without crashing while plugged in to the dock - got caught in an endless loop of flickering or just crashed completely, could only wake by unplugging from the dock, waking, then plugging back in.ii. Couldn't charge my phone from the USB port reliably (Nexus 6P).iii. Skype calls through a headset on the dock would sometimes 'lose' the headset and start playing through the Surface speaker instead.I wasn't even trying to drive multiple high-resolution monitors, this was an incredibly simple use-case, and the dock wasn't up to it.Maybe in the future the drivers will be fixed and this will be usable, but right now I would avoid - unfortunately.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromSuits my use-case really wellUsing this at work where my SP4 is constantly coming with me to meeting rooms, I have the dock on my desk for when sitting in one place. I don't use a separate keyboard and just make use of the type cover but have an external wireless mouse plugged in via the dock all the time.It's outputting over a cheap Mini DPI to HDMI cable I bought on Amazon for a few quid. Admittedly, I don't need uber high resolution for anything, plain old 1080p is fine for me!No real issues with performance save for the occasional slight glitch when unplugging / plugging in the Surface. It's only really a problem when I've been running in tablet mode and then plug straight into the dock; even then it's not every time.Would definitely recommend and want to get a second for using at home.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromDoesn't work - according to microsoft!I wanted a dock for for surface and I thought I would go for the expensive Microsoft option in order to only have one connection to the surface and provide power. On paper it seems like a great solution.However when you connect the dock with a monitor via displayport to the surface pro 4, the wifi interface stops working! This is a show stopper for me as I don't have an LAN ethernet cable available. I've tried two docks and two different displayport adaptors and it just doesn't work. Surface support eventually just told me to get my money back and buy a third party dock...

Rated 2 out of5 by fromReturned within 24 hoursWouldn't run my monitor at the correct resolution. On my previous Surface Pro 2 I connected the monitor via a display port adapter and it worked great. The same monitor worked great plugged in to the side of my newly acquired Surface Pro 4.I thought the dock would make a neater desk. Unfortunately no matter what I tried without and without Microsft support the dock wouldn't recognise the correct resolution. Can't understand why the socket on side of the SP4 works but the dock doesn't
