Customer Reviews:

  • Dynadock U
    I've been using the Dynadock for approximately 2 months now. I am quite impressed with it's functionality. If you want the freedom of owning a laptop but also want the ability to connect instantly to peripherals such as a monitor, keyboard and a mouse at home this is the item for you. ...more info

    Great Product. Very simple to set-up and use. Takes up minimal space on my desk and can be used with any PC via USB....more info
  • A worthwhile docking station for your laptop
    I am using this docking station to connect my Dell laptop (XP Home) to an Acer 22" widescreen LCD monitor via a DVI cable. I have also connected my keyboard, mouse, printer, backup drive, and speakers to this device. They are all working well though there are some issues.

    First the pros:
    1) I am able to get higher resolutions (up to 1680 by 1050) though for personal preference I have set it to 1440 by 900.
    2) I am able to view DVDs in full screen and also video chat using Skype without any problems.
    3) For graphics/videos it is using drivers from DisplayLink, which has good support. They seem to be actively working to resolve any lingering issues and you can always download the latest drivers directly from the DisplayLink web site. I upgraded mine to the latest from their site.

    Issues:
    1) The installation wasn't painless. For some reason the audio didn't work at first and I had to re-install the audio drivers from the CD separately to resolve that issue.
    2) I am unable to view videos from hulu.com and YouTube in full-screen mode. I am hoping DisplayLink will fix this in a future update.

    Other thoughts:
    DisplayLink website also provides the beta drivers for Windows 7 Beta. I installed that too (on Windows 7 Beta) and it was able to detect my monitor and set higher resolutions. However, the mouse movements, animations, and video are still somewhat slow and choppy on Windows 7 Beta. On XP, I didn't have any of these issues....more info
  • Works When Other Didn't
    The DynaDock worked right out of the box, when other manufacturers' products caused my Sony VGN-TXN17P to crash or lock up. I recommend using it for all "travelling type" notebook computers....more info
  • Simple and powerful
    I had been looking at various docking stations and port replicators for my new laptop, and kept coming back to the Dynadock U. Easy to set up, and nice to have everything plugged into one place. And I appreciate the small footprint. I've already recommended this to quite a few of my coworkers....more info
  • No surprise
    The Toshiba Dynadock U does what it says.
    There was one minor problem after installation, the audio icon on the task bar was missing.
    The problem was solved by re installing the software....more info
  • Dynadock
    Works as advertised but not smoothly. For example I have tried to set up the software to always use my external 19 inch monitor as the primary monitor and not use the laptops. It can do this but it has to be set up every time you restart the computer. If you don't mind mirroring the laptop it will keep those settings. ...more info
