Rated 1 out of 5 by UltraNo from One issue after another In addition to the monitor issues described by other reviewers I have found that certain USB hardware (usually printers, Keyboard and even a Webcam) plugged into the the USB3.0 ports on the Ultradock are causing several X240 Thinkpads to automatically boot up immediately after a controlled shutdown. As soon as the USB devices are moved to any of the 3 other USB2.0 ports the laptop will shut down successfully. The 3 Ultradocks in question have received the newest Firmware updates. The Performance and Features are good as long as you do not need to rely on those 3 extra USB3.0 ports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works Great! After reading other reviews on this site I was nervous to purchase this docking station. However, there were no really other good options. After having successfully used this dock for a while now, I felt compelled to write this review. Perhaps the negative reviews lowered my expectations. It has been working perfectly for me. I have had no problems at all. It has a nice small profile, and adds more ports than one could ever use. It seems well made, pretty rugged. I do think it is a little overpriced for what it does though. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from totally marginal product displays flickering, marginal connections to Ethernet, USB lock ups. Firmware updates from Lenovo do not solve problem. IBM tech support is oblivious to problem or basically has no solution. Rumors that voodoo of using a higher wattage power supply helps ameliorate the issues. Consistent with my conclusion that the problem is marginal timing or voltage in the chip in this thing. Wastes a half hour of my day every day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Charging station is a better name I have tried two different ThinkPad Ultra Dock stations among 4 monitors and 7 cables. All external monitors flicker when connected using DP, HDMI. HDMI finally went out completely so I downgraded to VGA connection and it has been stable so far for a week. I'm hoping the DVI port will not start flickering or die like DP and HDMI ports have. Only some USB ports are functional. The "features" are great, except the part about them not being functional. The only thing this junk actually does with any degree of reliability is charge the laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tony from Great addition to T440s I purchased the Ultra Dock for the sole purpose of connecting my ThinkPad T440s to two external monitor. The docks has performed amazingly well. I am able to connected two 1920x1080 monitor to the dock using DisplayPort and continue to use the T440s monitor all at the same time. The three (3) USB 3.0 ports are great and the charging port is great for my cellphone. The dock can support up to three (3) external monitor simultaneously but one has to be VGA or it can support two (2) external and the built in display.
