    I've got the D6000 it's pretty good, though I use the the non-usbC docking station usually.
    There's a limit on the refresh rate of monitors via this, not great for 3D visualisation. I don't use 4K monitors but have a reasonably specced up dell laptop that does 3D stereo visualisation and the guys at work who do use that function need to direct connect to those screens to get the right refresh rates.

    The other minor hassle is the power limits on USBC, 65 watts, which isn't enough to charge my laptop which needs 75 so I need to lug an additional power brick around.

    Anyway, stuff I wish I'd known before I got one. But its still pretty good and does what I need it to.

    • Thanks for the review. Appreciated before I threw my money at it.

    • I bought the same one.

      It will still charge even if it's below minimum charging requirements. My XPS 15 needs 130W, this is exactly half, but it still charges. As long as you're not doing anything crazy on it, 65W is enough to charge it and battery % goes up while using it.

      It's particularly great because I can charge via USB C instead of barrel charger.

      • I've got a dell precision 7520 and it won't boot with this docking station connected unless there's a power supply directly connected to the laptop, I just get a "not enough power from this dock" type of message.
        I can boot the laptop on battery and then connect the dock and it'll work but there's no indication to me that it's charging when I do this.

        • Well I dunno. I'm guessing yours is an older laptop and maybe it's pickier with power requirements where newer ones are not. Mine requires more power than yours and it still charges.

          Windows should tell you on the bottom right of the screen if it's charging or not. If there's no indication, it's not charging.

        • I had the same thing with my XPS 15 when I first started it up, but there is a BIOS setting to allow it to charge from the Dock regardless. Once that is on it works perfectly (charges from the dock via USB-C).

    • Do you have any suggestions for an alternate to the D6000 which will handle 75W?

      • The WD15 and TB16 can do 180W I believe. Both should be on sale at the same seller.

  • I must resist the temptation…

  • Good deal OP . Got one thx.

  • I was just about to purchase the D3100… you can't output 4k over HDMI… only over DisplayPort

  • Noob question: With the D3100 (or other usb3.0 docks), can you connect using usb2.0 with laptop that doesn't have usb3.0 as the input device?

    • Might work but video is gonna be unusable.

    • I don't recommend the D3100.

      All of the dock's ports (USB, ethernet, video out) are going to be sharing one USB 3.0 5Gbps connection to your laptop. That thing is going to be saturated.

      No, usb 2 does not have enough bandwidth for any dock in the world

  • Thanks OP. Been after the D6000 and this is a great price so got one.

  • Is it worth the extra $100 for the TB16 over the D600?

    • If you want TB3 (better than DisplayLink) and to charge devices with more power, yes.

      Its drawback is that the computer you connect it to must support TB3. The D3100 uses USB A or C. So you can hook it up to older devices that don't have USB C or TB.

    • Yes. It can support 5K display. TB3 has 4X bandwidth over USB 3.1 gen 1. If you have a MBP, TB3 makes more sense (pricey though). Do bear in mind that if you do use 5K, bandwidth remaining on the USB ports on the dock will reduce.

      People are reporting reliability issues though. Iffy quality of USC-C / Thunderbolt plug.

      • I've been using the TB16 for over a year, it is definitely worth it if you need the extra features.
        It's a Thunderbolt port vs USB-C and comes with a 180W power adapter.
        though i have realized overtime, that it was probably overkill for me, I could've saved a few $$ with going with a USB dock.

        having said that, from what i read on the Dell and mac forums, it doesn't play well with MBPs (i believe you have to disable some security setting and run a script provided but a netizen to get it to work).

  • DO NOT BUY. I contract for Dell and fix at least 10 laptops a week that either the cable on the dock or type c port has failed. The type c ports they use dont seem to be very durable. I wouldnt recommend this product until they start using better connectors.

    • I can confirm that the type c cable on the dock end has design problem, the TB15 has the same problem. It's so cheap for a reason, especially whey you buy from graysonline/catchoftheday, I learnt from the hard way these two seller are the handler to clear out big brand's junks.

    • Just as a vote on the other side of the coin. My work has 40 laptops with D6000 docks and have only had one issue in the past year.

      Also I'm not saying problems don't exist or discounting the poster above. Just wanted to offer a different view.

      Also thanks op. I'll share this at work, as a few people have wanted docks for home.

  • Would the d6000 work well with a macbook pro?

    • Yes, it has USB-C pass through support with PD though the actual data bandwidth is still limited to USB 3.0/3.1 gen 1.

      But, you do need the bulky power adapter to take advantage of the USB-PD (charging). Specs says up to 65W, so not great for 15 inch MBP (will still charge).

  • Buy a USC-C monitor and you might not need to buy this.

    • How much power does a monitor deliver?

      I don't even use the video out. I use it as a USB hub with ethernet and charging. It connects to Android devices also with some limitations.

  • Noob question: Will this work with Lenovo laptops or only Dell?

    • Work with other laptops fine but the D3100 can only output 4K @ 30Hz.

    • I have the d6000, been using it with my x1 carbon which was purchased last year. It's been great. Charges it fine too.

      I have an external 27" 1440p monitor connected and a 24" 1080p monitor + the laptop so 3 screens all up. My work is just emails, office apps etc though

  • Can D6000 be used with a laptop via USB 3.0 which doesn't have USB-c?
    Thanks

    • Yes, the product includes USB-A adapter. This youtube video shows the adapter at 0:40. Looking at the video, I agree with Sean8802 that the connector does not look very durable.

      • I don't like the design of the adapter. If they did a removable clip on adapter it would have been better.

  • Pardon my ignorance, but how do they display 4k if the video card in the lappie is FHD? Does the dock interpolate pixels?

    • Think of it as USB external display. 4K is limited to 30Hz, not 60Hz.

      If your lappie only comes with FHD graphics chip, then you are limited to USB-A so the Thunderbolt one is not applicable.

      Do check your lappie has at least 1 USB 3.0 port otherwise you will be wasting your money.

    use both at work. d3100 should be thrown away and sent to hell. d6000 is great and highly recommended.

    • I have the D3100 and everything is very laggy with my 25" monitors. As soon as I plug the dock in, theres a windows process that hogs about 50% of the CPU (I forget what it is called).

  • Sounds like a great alternative to Microsoft Surface dock for Surface Pro and laptop

  • If you are after just a USB hub, then these are not good - because they are too bulky and they require the use of the included proprietary power adapter.

    They are designed for multiple monitors via USB-A/C. For office or home office. There is a catch though. If one of your monitors is 2K or higher, you will be limited to just 1 display from the hub. 4K is 30hz max with no HDR.

    The Thunderbolt one has more bandwidth so it can drive multiple monitors at higher resolution. The other two are mainly for 2 full HD monitors type setup.

  • Anyone knows if it works with Nintendo Switch? I lost my switch dock while I was travelling.

    • If all you need is charging, I don't see why it wouldn't.

      Not so confident about the other features. If you want it to connect to your TV, I actually think it won't. DisplayLink requires drivers, which you won't find for the Switch. It supports Windows and Android. Switch uses neither.

      The TB16 does not use DisplayLink but uses TB3 I don't think the Switch uses TB3 though I could be wrong.

  • So D6000 vs D3100, is it only better 4K support and USB-C?
    Can D3100 charge my laptop?
    I need to run 2 HD monitors, my laptops don't have USB-C, is it worth getting D6000 or shall I just go with the cheaper model?

    • D3100 cannot charge your laptop. As a general rule, USB A does not receive charge, it only outputs charge.

      The D6000 will be a bit more future proof, so there's that to consider. It can be used with other devices you might have, that support C. You can charge a non-Apple smartphone with it. And the USB hub will work.

  • Big warning here- if you're trying to run a 4K monitor, I'm pretty sure no dongle will run at 60hz. They run at 30Hz which is horrible to use.

    To get 4k @ 60hz you need a dedicated USB-C cable (not a dongle)

  • Bought one D3100.
    Thanks.

  • So how does it work with DisplayPort to HDMI adapters, are the cheapies under 10 bucks only good for 1080p or 4K too? 30fps or 60fps? Thanks in advance.
