Microsoft Surface Dock (pd9 00003) 2491

Review for surface

Price was $134.99. This worked perfectly for my surface pro 4. While i enjoyed the dock for the surface pro 3, this utilized less space on my desk at home, which is what i required. The only thing i wished was different is the surface pro 4 will not utilize dual monitors like a desktop will. I connected a usb hub to this to expand the usb-3 ports. I also utilize a mini usb bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse and the connection to the external keyboard and mouse is available immediately on my surface pro 4 when i boot up. I love the mini display port connections as those are my preferred method of connecting monitors.

Foreword : Microsoft Surface Dock pd9 00003

I really love the concept of the microsoft surface dock. I use it every day and it has transformed my work. I connect i up to 2 hard drives, my touchscreen 27 inch acer and a flash drive with it. . As helpful as this product is, in my opinion it could've been much better. I would have loved to have seen regular hdmi plugs instead of the mini plugs on it. Or at least one of each type of hdmi plug. For my needs i would have preferred 8 usb plugs to 4. It then would have become a truly professional machine, which would have eliminated the need for me to disconnect one device to use another. . I purchased the surface 4 is a backup computer, and it has become my main computer due to the surface dock. If i had to have done it again, i would have purchased the i7 surface 4 instead of the i5. The surface dock is what allowed the surface 4 to become my main computer. I am an artist and i use photoshop and dragon which are both intensive programs which the surface is able to handle. #Microsoft Surface Book Intel Best surface | Microsoft-Computer Add On Review ( Sep 2019 ) Value Microsoft Surface Dock Compatible with surface pro 3, surface pro 4, surface book, surface pro, and surface laptop. 2x mini display ports, 1x gigabit ethernet port. 4 usb 3. 0 ports, 1x audio out port.

Microsoft surface dock Review (pd9 00003)

I use this dock with both my surface pro 4 and the new 2017 surface pro. Both work beautifully! it is so convenient and now makes it so i don't have a desktop and my surface. In fact, docking my pro has proven to be much faster and more effective that the desktop was. I am glad to only have one computer to worry about, that i can take anywhere i go. This was very easy to set up, and i have not had any issues with connectivity. I have 2 x 27 inch screens attached, plus 2 x scanner and an external hard drive. They all fit easily, and i still have some ports left. I am so glad i got this. -P. Donna

Microsoft Pd9 00003 Surface Dock Personal Computer

PROS
  • Fully updated sp4 w/ fully updated dock. Using two active adapters ( no monitor problems at all with displays. The only issue i have with the dock is that for some reason it doesn't want to shutdown or restart. Goes black and just doesn't do anything. Have to do a hard power button restart. But. If i 'log off' first, then shutdown or restart, works fine. Only had things for a week, but generally happy with it. . Pros outweigh cons. Would buy again at this point.
  • I'm using the surface dock with a 4k monitor and a full hd monitor, as well as the internal monitor (3 screens) and . It works great! i wouldn't play games across all 3 screens, but for regular apps, i don't have any real problems. (one of my video chat apps doesn't seem to scale it's video well, but forcing it to the bigger graphics card helps. ). . Every once in a while, when windows resumes it'll have trouble turning on both monitors. All i do is pull the dock, wait for windows to settle after resuming, then plug it back in. This has occurred maybe 2-3 times, total. . I have all four usb sockets in use, including one going to a high-power (for charging while connected) usb hub. The ethernet port is in use. Both video ports. About the only thing i don't use is the audio port because audio is carried over the video to one of my monitors that has built-in speakers. . It's a good setup; only downside would be lack of usb-c - but the surface book doesn't have that, either, so that's not a new issue.
  • Microsoft Wireless Media Keyboard N9z
CONS
  • I am conflicted on how to rate this purchase. I bought it to replace one i had for a couple years that bricked itself when i tried to update the firmware. This one worked fine except the ethernet connection on it. It would reset itself every 3 to 9 minutes, making it impossible to keep my work vpn connection up. I decided to buy a new one directly from microsoft and it works perfectly, no ethernet issue and then i returned this unit to online store. Now i am afraid to update the firmware since the last time i did that my dock was bricked. Since it is working fine i won't. If you need a dock for your surface (mine is a surface book) then this will work, but seems to have some issues. As a fallback i have a dynadock i bought on online store before i had my surface book (plugable usb 3. 0 universal laptop docking station for windows (dual video hdmi & dvi / vga, gigabit ethernet, audio, 6 usb ports) and it works perfectly on the surface book and i never had a problem. The only reasons i went to the ms dock was that using the dynadock means i have two cables to plug in when i set up at work (my usb and power) vs one for the microsoft dock (which is a snap to slap in place) and the microsoft dock allows me to use far higher resolution monitors (3840 x 2160 and 1280 x 1024) and with the dynadock i could only use the 1280x1024 and 1920 x 1080). So if you are like me and want 3 displays (the surface display plus 2 monitors) and one to be super high resolution, then the microsoft dock may be your only choice. Just be aware of issues it has.
  • Its a shame you have to spend this much money to dock a surface. Unfortunately, the dock is the only way i could get external monitors to synch up. Correctly. Typical microsoft proprietary engineering, forcing you to buy their products. .
  • This dock does not work as advertised, nothing in my power has been able to get it to work so i'm forced into returning it. I got this for my surface book, and now that laptop is pretty excellent. It's a shame that its official dock can't even perform simple functions such as feed a single external monitor. I've been trying, very patiently, to get the display ports on this thing to feed a single 4k monitor, the samsung u28e590d. This model is clearly listed on microsoft's page as a confirmed supported monitor. I also got the microsoft recommended cables. This monitor works beautifully when plugged into the surface book's displayport out directly, it doesn't work at all when connected to the dock. It either can't turn the monitor on (display settings control panel gives an error that it can't save the configuration when i try to enable the monitor), or if the monitor does by chance turn on it ends up causing both itself and the surface book's display to turn on and off, on and off in a never ending loop. . I've done everything on microsoft's support page, from running their registry file to clear the display cache, ensuring the dock's firmware is up to date using the dock updater, and also tried out another surface dock all together. I can't get this thing to use my single samsung monitor, and since i can't plug in the monitor to the surface book's displayport while the dock is connected i can't even use it as a usb hub. I really would like this thing to work, but that doesn't seem possible short of microsoft applying firmware fixes for said dock. . I see no reason why the displayports on this dock can't work the same as the port on the laptop itself, but they do and that is a shame.

surfaceMicrosoft Surface Dock (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

I picked up this dock when my desktop pc had an issue and i needed to use my i7 surface pro 4 as my main computer. Out of the box it allowed me to use my 1080p touch screen monitor (using an active dp - hdmi adapter. I was also able to connect all my peripherals (photo scanner, wireless keyboard and mouse, external hd) to usb without issue. I use a lot of usb devices, though, and wish it had a couple more ports. The ethernet connection works well, i haven't experienced any issues. Recently, i set it up in a dual external monitor configuration and it is working without issue. It seems that the latest (march 22, 2016) firmware update may have relieved the requirement for active adapters - i am currently running an online store basics dp - hdmi adapter and a victsing dp - vga adapter without issue, and from what i've read neither of those is active. The sound is decent, it works well with my off-brand 2. 1 speakers and i also have a logitech usb headset set up as my default communication device. It really has allowed me to use the surface as a desktop replacement. . The form factor works well for my desk, but the placement of the power brick can be tricky depending on the desk setup. The wire between the power and the actual dock is long enough to allow some flexibility, but it isn't as nice as it could be if the ac adapter was included in the dock. . Pros:. Small dock form factor. 2 display port connections. Video works well with current firmware. Decent sound. . Cons:. Additional power brick. Could use a couple more usb ports. List price is expensive. Firmware update process is hidden from the user so hard to tell when an update hits

Microsoft Surface Dock
Click to see NoticeMicrosoft Surface Dock (pd9 00003)"This is a awesome dock that should probably come with some of the higher-spec surface pros. Since the surface only has on usb slot, if you intend to do anything more than surf the web or do some document editing, you're going to need a few more usb ports and probably an ethernet connection. This is a must-have for professionals who use the surface as their primary system! this dock makes the surface pro significantly more useful and keeps the wires to the absolute minimum!"

(0) Question: New to windows machines. will this work with a surface book to run dual monitors effortlessly?


(1) Question: Is it compatible with 110 or 220 power?


(2) Question: Has anyone managed to get this dock to drive two 4k monitors? if so what make monitors?

F.A.Q. for microsoft surface dock

I love my dock, i want to share some info i found. I had an old mini-display port to dvi cable originally purchased for a mac. The company mac was upgraded to air version that no longer had this port. So the cable sat in a drawer. . I was able to use it fine with the port on the surface pro 4, but it would not work on the dock. Then one day it did. Similar to problems others had. . Then i figured it out. If you dock and it does not come up, power cycle the dock power. Seems like when the dock powers up it then correctly sees the cable. This might be the solution to those with adaptors that work sometimes and not other times. . I have only had to do that about 3 times in 50 dockings. . Thanks

A number of questions have been asked here.

I must admit that i was leery at first reading all the of the negative reviews, but i really needed the option of a dock and i couldn't help but think that microsoft, while not infallible, wouldn't put out a product so inferior as described by others. Once again, let me state that i know microsoft puts out software with issues, etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, i chose to have a little faith in them. Well, it is my opinion that the majority of the negative reviews are user error. After i read some of the success reviews, i pretty much confirmed my suspicions in that most were doing it wrong. You must use an "active" mini display port adaptor if you have older monitors. Following the suggestions of others i used the adapters and works like a charm. I now have 3 monitors (the surface screen and two external monitors. I just simply connected them, went to my display settings and arranged them in the order i wanted them and that was that. The scaling is perfect, it simply just works. Again, i suspect that those with issues are using "passive" mini display adapters. Passive don't have the electronics built into the cord and the signal gets lost and compromised creating a failure. . 2/5/2016: update- still performing flawlessly.

Best microsoft surface dock (pd9 00003) in review

Was reluctant to buy this because i had the original surface dock and it started having issues supporting more than one external display (i have two). Finally after all of that frustration i broke down and purchased this new version. It works great. I have had no issues with screens disconnecting, it's fast, has plenty of usb ports, and the two minidisplay ports are great. I preferred the way the old dock snapped around the surface pro better than this one plugging in but once you get used to it it isn't so bad, especially because you can use it if you have a case on your surface pro without having to remove it (i don't but can see the benefit there).

The new surface dock is a great add on. It's incredibly easy to setup and doesn't require any special knowledge, truly plug and play. It's perfect for charging the surface pro, connecting to ethernet at gigabit speeds, displayport monitor and peripherals. I did test the displayport connection to make sure it works (no glitches like others have experienced thankfully), but i don't plan to use it on a daily basis. On my desk the cable that connects is plenty long, but i can see how some would prefer a longer cable to help hide the dock itself. All in all, this is a very good addition to the surface accessory lineup - i deducted 1 star due to the price, in my mind this should cost no more than $130.

This year we replaced a bunch of the laptops & laptops around the office with microsoft surface pro tablets. This is really a nice way to convert the tablet into more of a desktop replacement. . The only issue i've had with it personally, and the reason for knocking off one star, is that it crashes when i/o is heavy. I run some backup software that periodically verifies large files ( 200gb) and then copies them off to a usb drive for offsite storage. When i had the usb drive plugged into the docking station it would periodically "overload" and crash everything. Network connectivity lost, usb drive offline, and backup software crash. I since started plugging the usb drive directly into the tablet and have not had any problems. . Microsoft does have a "microsoft surface dock updater" available for download, which appears to update the firmware on the device. The most recent firmware update did improve the situation but i still had crashes until i moved the usb drive off to the port on the tablet. . This device seems to run well for everyone else & for me now that i moved the usb drive. As other users have pointed out, make sure you get the "active" display cable & you should be ok. I'm running two viewsonic vp2365 leds on the docking station with no trouble at all. . This item is definitely worth the purchase price, and i imagine it will get better with time as more updates become available.

M. Cathy, Manitoba says

I would give this five stars, however, there is one very irritating flaw. When you reconnect the dock after you lock the screen or it locks on its own, the monitors have to re-initialize 10% of the time. When you have many open windows on 4 monitors, it is very frustrating and time consuming to wait for windows to organize all of the monitors, place your backgrounds and move your icons/taskbar where they should be. Sometimes even this process fails and just duplicates your primary monitor on half of the other monitors. It's a crap shoot. The good thing is that you can simply unplug the dock from the surface and plug it back in. All will be right in a few seconds except for moving your windows back where they were. . If it wasn't for this annoying flaw, which is probably more of an issue with windows 10 and drivers than it is the device, it would get top marks. Since i am on the latest updates and drivers as of this review, you should expect the same with additional monitors. If you never lock your desktop or put anything to sleep, fire away!

E. Theola, Colorado

The dock does everything it suppose to do for my surface book 2. But that took more effort then it should of. Out of the box i connected 2 monitors, speakers, wireless mouse/keyboard, and a external hard drive. Everything ran great for an hour and then one of my monitors went black. It took time, but i got that monitor working, only to have the other one go black. I then looked into this issue. It is a very common issue, apparently. I then had to install software onto the surface, so i can upload a firmware update to the dock. That still didn't fix the problem. I then had to find a new directory to upload onto the dock. That finally did work. When the dock works, it works great and like it should. I'm just aggrevated that this was designed for the surfaces and it has multiple issues out of the box and no instructions explaining this stuff to you. If you are good with computers, you'll figure it out, if you are not, you'll most likely think it's junk and try to return it

T. Matherly, Illinois says

I've had many a dock in the past. Huge, heavy ugly beasts that are awkward and frustrating to connect with a laptop. . Not this one. This is the first painless dock i've owned. It's connected to my surface pro 4. . It has 4 usb3s, a couple mini display ports, ethernet, and a connection to the surface pro. All of this in a small unobtrusive black brick. . When i'm hooked up, i get a separate keyboard, mouse and a large 2nd monitor. . Best of all, the tablet connection is the same magnetic connection used for charging the tablet. Done and undone in 5 seconds, one snap!

*updated 8/15/2017* please see updated review notes at the bottom of this review. . The surface dock is really the only quality option for docking your surface. Microsoft discontinued the surface pro 3 docks that locked in on the sides, so this is our only choice for a dock that charges the surface and outputs to multiple displays, etc. Here is my pros and cons:. . Pros:. - with the right mini display adapters it works great. Tested many adapters and only fosmon brand worked every time (vga - fosmon hd1826 mini displayport (thunderbolt) to vga male to female adapter, white, or dvi - i have no ties to the company, but i have used a ton of adapters and these just work with everything. - dock should be future-proof for surface pro 5, 6, etc. As long as they keep the main charging port the same, even if it's a larger surface. - nice having two mini-display ports in the dock over one from the previous generation dock. - smaller foot print than previous dock. - charges surface while docked (same as previous gen). - no mouse lag at all (if you have ever tried a dock that connects through usb and noticed the mouse-lag, you know how annoying that can be)! . . Cons:. - scaling is still whonky, but this is more of a surface thing than a dock thing. If you dock/undock a lot, be prepared to reboot or sign-out a lot. Like every time, unless you don't mind your resolution being all messed up. Microsoft really needs to figure that out. - very picky about mini-display adapters. I tried half a dozen and only fosmon brand would work. With the right ones it does work great, but still it can be a pain figuring out what works. - screen occasionally will flicker very briefly if you unplug and replug from usb ports. . My setup is: 2x 1080p screens with the surface on as a 3rd monitor. I've not tried higher resolution monitors. Overall, i like the dock. The cons can be a little frustrating, but the pros out weigh them in my opinion. It's possible the issues will get fixed down the road as microsoft does release firmware updates through windows 10 for the dock. I will update my review if/when that happens. . *updated 8/17/2017*. The scaling issue is not a surface or dock related issue. This is a windows issue that will be greatly fixed in the fall creators update (free update) coming soon. I'm on the insider preview edition that is testing the new scaling features and it works fantastic! it's about time!

K. Diana, Berlin says

Works well provided that you update the firmware first. I'd give it two stars as-is because all audio sent through the dock crackled and was choppy. Even when audio wasn't playing i'd hear annoying clicks and pops. So now that the firmware is updated it works as expected.

I. Kimberly, Lambeth

Was a bit worried when i saw some of the negative reviews, but this worked like a charm out of the box. . I used a couple of allreli mini-dp to hdmi cables and had no problem at all having the dock detect them ( . Having the dual monitors and extra usb ports for when i'm at my home office is great. Also glad they used the power supply connector for data so i didn't have to use the usb or other port. Very forward thinking of microsoft for a change.

R. Patricia, York says

The docking station is a need for those who are using a surface book or a sp4! the item is small but sturdy and heavy enough to not move around when in use. I really enjoy the ability to open up more usb ports for connectivity along with more screen real estate for my browsing/working needs on the surface! the only gripe i have is when using the mini displayports, make sure to buy cables/adapters with skinny heads as thicker/wider ones will be cause for issues in getting 2 cables side by side. Otherwise, great use for multiple monitors!

S. Jessica, Warwickshire

We have used this dock for about 1. 5 years. I was growing increasingly frustrated because the inputs would stop working one by one and we would accommodate by not using the external keyboard or the iphone charger, etc. Then the monitor stopped connecting and i was about to write a one-star review when i read another online store review mentioning firmware updates. I didn't think this simple device needed firmware updates. I'm sure you can guess the end of the story. Works perfectly. What a dolt i am.

Q. Eleanor, Merton says

You want this dock if you have a surface 3/4 with an external monitor. . I had thought i would be satisfied with plugging in the mini display port adapter every day when i get to work. That has 2 problems:. 1. Its a hassle. 2. The mini display port starts to flake. *especially* if you have an external 4k monitor. Breathing on the display port connector makes it flake. Just existing makes it flake. Eventually it fails entirely. . Solution: get this dock. It has:. 1. A *better* mini display port adapter, which importantly does not move around just because you touched your computer. 2. A better connector to the surface. All power, network, and display port stuff comes through the microsoft magnetic connector. . Now my external monitor works perfectly every time, i can slide my computer around without crashing the video driver, and it is so much faster and more pleasant to connect each morning, and after every meeting.

L. Alexia, Vermont says

Great product. Has all the ports i need to connect my surface pro 4 at work to an additional set of older dell monitors, keyboard, wired network, and accessories like speakers and a dvd r/w. The unit is small and connects to the surface with a cord (about 2 ft long) at the power port. It also chages the surface while docked. Between the hours at work docked, and the undocked when needed or after work, i never have to charge the battery on my surface! . . The station is small (about 6"x2"x1") and with the longer cord is easy to push under a monitor or to the side of the desk not taking up any space, . Note to buyers: if you want to connect any monitors or tv's with vga, dvi, or hdmi cables, you must buy an "active" mini-dp adapter. There are many cheaper adapters that are not "active", and although they may work, you will at some point or another have problems with the monitor not coming back on or turning off during your work.

H. Wade, Haringey

I had a docking station for my surface pro 3 and wondered how easy to use this dock would be. The cable to the dock inserts into the magnetic power port, which has all the necessary data connections through the same port. Therefore, this doesn't work for any other kinds of laptops or tablets other than the surface pro and surface book lines. . A usb connector to the pc, or a usb adapter that would make this dock useful for my other laptops would be nice for cross-compatibility/ however, this is a lot easier to connect and disconnect than a usb port, so i'm not worried at all about torqueing the port like i would be for a usb dock. It would be nice to have a couple more usb ports, so all my peripherals could stay connected all the time.

W. Newell, Knowsley says

I've got it set up with large dual monitors, speakers, keyboard and mouse, so after docking my laptops work like desktops and it works well. I like that it works on all my surface devices, as i have a surfacebook work device and surface pro 3 personal device. . Giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because of a few issues that required work-arounds before i could get things working as expected:. * it didn't work well out of the box. But after updating the firmware in both the dock and my surfaces things started working better. * it didn't work with an older monitor i had, but works great with newer (and bigger) monitors i bought for it. * the resolution gets funky if i try to overlap displays (e. G, keep laptop closed and just use two monitors); in that case it will display the overlapped monitor in the laptops resolution and there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this, so i just keep it as three screens (keep laptop open) and just don't use the laptop screen. * early on it wouldn't always connect to the monitors and i had to jiggle things after docking to get monitors to connect, but this issue has mostly gone away (so assuming some recent firmware updates have helped mitigate this).

I liked that it worked with my microsoft surface pro 4. I was also able to plug in an additional j5 create (multi usb ports) into one surface dock usb port yielding eleven usb 3. 0 ports. I have not tried to load all of them up with devices but i have had two 138 gig thumb nail size storage drives attached with no issues operationally. I did notice what i would consider excessive heat when i tested coping approx 100 gig of data from one drive to another as a back-up. Also: i do not yet know if the surface dock will allow my surface pro 4 to drive two high definition (hd) screens without any issues. What i did not like about this product is microsofts inferior documentation and clumsy manner of providing access to information about people's attempts to iron out issues with their products. This is fairly true of all support from microsoft on their products.

F. Janice, Barking and Dagenham says

I use this, and a plugable usb docking station with my sp4, and all work fine together. I have two monitors connected through the surface dock. Two points about the surface dock. First, the cable from the dock with the surface connector is too short. I like to take the sp4 off my desk, use it in portrait mode, while connected to the dock, to annotate pdfs. Another 12 inches of cable would be helpful. Second, because this dock connects to a surface by a surface connector, it can be used with the tablet portion of the surface book, giving the tablet power and connectivity, should you wish to use that in portrait orientation.

Z. Brendon, North Yorkshire

I love this dock and have been using it every day for over a year. It has plenty of ports which really let me make the most of my surface book and the additional video ports mean that i can connect two displays to my device. I'm taking half a point because sometimes my displays aren't detected, even though everything is properly connected (sometimes i'll switch the cables and the same output will work on the other monitor)other times it will detect them and connect but displays at extremely low res, i'm also taking another half star because the connector is so large that it blocks another port on my surface book making it impossible to connect a third external display without additional devices. Outside of those two issues i have no complaints. If you intend to use this with only one additional monitor, or two at the most it will be great, when it properly detects and connects to them. Outside of the surface pen this is probably the most essential surface accessory.

U. Joanne, Hounslow says

I did not know the power connector for the surface was also a communications port. I had previously used the usb3 to a docking /expansion box, but it became intermittent over time. This plugs in very easily to the power port and charges the surface while enabling additional ports (video & usb). Very well built, solid and a bit heavy. After using for a month, very reliable. Now i do not have to keep moving my original power cord to connect into my docking station, everything connects via the power connector of this docking station. Only thing i do not know is what type of communications connector the power port is. I have not had time to research that.

N. Smith, Wyoming

I have been using this product for about 10 hours a day for 2 days with no problem at all. Below is my configuration:. 1) one logitech receiver extender cable plugged into a dock usb port. 2) one logitech wireless keyboard model mk550 and logitech mouse model m705 communicating with receiver extender cable plugged into dock port. 3) two monitors (one viewsonic vp2770-led 27" ips 2k 1440p monitor (orientation is landscape at 2560x1440 resolution) and one dell ultrasharp u2415 24. 0-inch screen led monitor (orientation is portrait at 1200x1920 resolution)) both monitors connect using cable matters gold plated mini display port to hdmi 6ft cables plugged into the dock mini display ports. 4) one netgear ac1200 wi-fi usb adapter high gain dual band usb 3. 0 model a6210 plugged into dock port. 5) one linksys wrt ac1900 dual-band+ wi-fi wireless router model wrt1900acs v2. This is what the netgear adapter i have plugged into the dock port communicates with for internet and local network access. . I have had no problems losing network connectivity. Both of my displays have also sustained solid performance with no problems losing displayed content. Removing my surface book from the dock and re-docking several times a day has not cause any problems such as having to reboot to make things work. Performance has been solid.

C. Gladys, Medway says

Microsoft surface dockonline storebasics mini displayport to hdmi cable - 6 feet. . Years of working in offices but required to travel, most docking stations have been large, bulky, fixed to the desk with a spiderweb of cords, etc. I really like the microsoft approach with this docking station. . It's small, minimal, and easy to plug/unplug. This one is actually my second one and used for my home pc. I wanted to also be able to easily plug into my monitors on my home desktop pc and have a fixed docking station there. But also not take up any additional space. It only req'd me to get this station and also 2 short mini-display ports to hdmi cables ( which work very well! now i can have a solid docking station at work, also same setup at home with minimal impact and ability to easily use my larger monitors. . It has:. 2x mini display ports. 1x gigabit ethernet port. 4 usb 3. 0 ports (2 front / 2 rear side). 1x audio output jack. . I have both the surface pro 3 and surface pro 4 and this docking station works for both these tablets.

V. Mable, Warrington

Ok. So i read most reviews and did not know what to think when i purchased this. I recently bought 2 asus vn279ql 27" monitors. Nothing special about these monitors, but they are led 1080p (highest these monitors can go. ) i choose these monitors because they were cheap and it had a "display port" input. I did not want to mess around with adapters, even though a lot say to use active adapters if you do, i did not want to mess with it. I got a monitor with a display port and i got a mini displayport to displayport cord. I hooked it all up and got no picture, but the devise manager showed "generic pnp" for each monitor, so i knew it was at least recognizing the monitors. Wtf right? i eventually updated the docking station (should have done that first. ), but that did not work. Eventually, i went into the setting for each monitor via the "display setting" page, clicked on the monitors that would not display on the top (usually the external monitors will be 2, 3, or 2/3), then i clicked "advance display settings" at the bottom, then "display adapter properties. " i then changed the monitors "hz" to 60. For some reason it was defaulted to 59hz. After i did that, my monitors started to work. All is good in the world. However, when i repositions the screens in the display settings screen to represent how my screens are laid out, i had to do it again because it changed back to 59hz. I have since shut everything down surface pro 4 and monitors, disconnected my surface pro 4 and hooked it back up and all is still good without having to do any of that stuff i talked about. No issues. Will update if something changes.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

R. Allen, Prince Edward Island says

Says it's supposed to work with surface book 2 but lots of issues. Main one was working with secondary display. Power goes in and out. Tried changing the refresh rate and many other fixes like drivers, etc. - no dice. Avoid.

C. Carrie, Hackney

I've had this for a couple weeks. Main use was as usb hub for hard drives. Worked great, at first. Now does not allow the hard drive to work. Hard drives work fine when plugged into to surface pro's one usb port! but i bought this brick to overcome the one usb port problem! now it is a 5 pound charger!

B. Benton, South Carolina says

This is a product review not related to the seller. This dock is a pain. Often drops the usb attached restart almost each time. And my last one failed. Microsoft does not repair. I'd buy something else but my desk is already set up. It's a work thing. My choice would be not to buy this unless you need the video components

T. Ruff, Sandwell

The product itself works as advertised. I've had one at work that i've used for months with my sp4 on a dual-monitor setup and it makes my life incredibly easy when i get into the office every day. If you have any surface product and want to use it in a desktop environment this is a great option. . However. Mine came today and it looked like it's been used for months then thrown into a random box and sent to me. It's not advertised as refurbished or used so i have no idea why mine came covered in dust, dirt and scratches. I'd put a picture up but i don't even really want to touch it again until i make sure i'm up to date on my vaccines.

N. Olga, Basse-Normandie says

Another microsoft "good enough for who it's for" product. It could be great, but fails most of the time. Don't expect it to work out of the box, but with software updates it sort of does what it is supposed to. You should expect to do a lot of rebooting etc. I still haven't got it to handle more than one external monitor even though its main purpose is to run several.

O. Patricia, Waltham Forest

Nice concept. Nice design. I like that the usb 3 ports seem to work plus the charger all goes through 1 connection to the surface. . But the dual monitor function doesn"t work. I have bought all the fancy cables, supported by microsoft. I have 2 monitors supported by microsoft. I have a surface pro 3. But the main reason i bought this was for the dual monitors. I'm so tired of dealing with support. And tired of leaving feedback on microsoft forums that gets ignored by ms. . Why would you put this on the market if it isn't going to work with surfaces? how would you not have tested this.

X. Guest, Auvergne says

When everything is in working order, this is a great product. The problem is that not everything jives all the time. . First of all, if you are getting a converter from minidp to hdmi or dvi, be sure to get an active adapter. If you don't you'll have problems with your connection, if it works at all. I did a lot of reading about this before getting one, and got active adapters, haven't had signal problems at all. Worth the extra cost. . Setup is easy, just plug everything in to their respective ports, then plug the one cord into your machine (mine is a surface book). . It took some tinkering, but eventually i got it set up to output to my two 1080p monitors (one through a dvi adapter, one through an hdmi adapter). The problems arise when undocking and re-docking. Your mileage may vary, but i eventually figured out the pattern to keep the setup working. . When plugging in, i need to have the laptop open, plug in, then close the lid. When unplugging, i do the opposite: open the lid, unplug. Unplugging from the dock has its own set of issues, going from a 1080p resolution to the 200% zoom setting on the high res screen of the sb makes windows wonky shapes, moves my desktop icons around, and leaves some ui elements over or under scaled. Its clear that microsoft only has basic support for this functionality, but it is there. . I would not recommend this to someone who doesn't like to troubleshoot. You will have some issues, but it will work.

S. Imelda, Bedfordshire

Great value for $105 with shipping (refurbished). I'm not entirely sure the product was ever worth the $200 sticker price. But i'm happy - no more fussing with three cables when docking my surface. Works as advertised - no flaws or defects. . Note for a mini displayport to hdmi connection from the dock to your monitor, you need a cable labeled "active" or it won't work. For minidp to displayport, you can use any cable. . *update*. It's been a few months and what started with a random displayport lost signal once in a while is now a daily occurrence. If i don't plug my monitor directly into my surface pro 2017, but instead use the dock as it's designed, the display signal fails several times a day, and there's no quick fix - i have to shut down power to the dock and the monitors and restart the surface to guarantee that the displays will start working again. This was a bad refurb.

. Watson, Ohio says

Bought it for a surface pro 3, windows 10, fully updated. Won't run an asus mb168b+, wouldn't run a new dell display port monitor (direct connection, no adapters). That was the reason i bought it. Plus, you get two bricks, not one, and the main one is as heavy as a brick! . When is does work, every so often all your monitors go dark. Have to unplug and re-plug. Didn't like my stock usb mouse either. This device may work well for some, but i sent it back. I tried hard to make it work, but the display port issue was the last straw. Turned me sour on my surface in the process, since now it looks like it's back in icu. But i can run three monitors again, no problem.

Z. Hurst, New Mexico

Bought this dock to go along with my new surface book that recently came out. I will mention that as of this past weekend i have returned the surface book and got a yoga 900 instead but i will comment on the dock while i was using it with the surfacebook. . Setup. Very easy, unboxed, plugged into the laptop and it just worked. . Reliability. This could have been an issue with the computer (because microsoft has came out and said many times they are sorry the surface book and pro4 have so many issues) but sometimes it was hard to wake up the computer while docked without turning it off and back on. Other times when i would undock from it, the icons would stay very very small until i rebooted. Basically the computer would think it was still connected to the dock. . Size. Coming from a surface3 dock this is a huge step up as it does not take up a lot of space on my desk. . Overall. It worked well but there were just too many issues to keep the laptop with the graphics, how hot it was, and just overall reliability. I am sure microsoft will fix the software issues soon i just did not want to wait as my return window was almost up.

M. Pearson, Champagne-Ardenne says

Online store has been kind enough to deliver a replacement of this in an unsuccessful attempt to get it to work. Neither the first nor the second ms surface pro docking station ("brick") would work reliably with my dell p2715q monitor. The monitor works fine at 3840x2160 30 hz when plugged directly into the surface pro 3's mini-dp port with an hdmi to mini-dp cable, but not when plugged similarly into the docking station. I also noticed some lesser issues with reliability of the usb ports on the docking station. Ms lists the dell p2715q monitor as compatible with the docking station (i checked before purchasing). I followed the online ms surface pro docking station trouble shooting guidelines, to include working with the ms help desk. I also posted a request for assistance on the ms community with no helpful feedback. Issues encountered included screen going black when using windows snap to move app windows, screen going black when app windows are moved with mouse, screen suddenly starting to flash for no apparent reason, screen failing to work upon awakening from sleep, screen failing to work upon start up, and screen displaying message that the resolution and frequency need to be set to the exact settings that are being used.

W. Jarvis, Virginia

Update to my previous review. I just hooked this up in my office with multiple monitors and had the same issue as everyone else. The mini display ports are not powerful enough to connect 2 dvi monitors using the mini dp to dvi cable. Using one monitor works fine and i can hook the other up to my surface pro 3 directly, but that defeats the purpose of this dock. If you couldn't power 2 monitors natively, it shouldn't be a docking station. The work around is to either use the mini display port on the surface, or get an active mini dp to dvi or vga adapter. You would think for a $160 brick, they would include those as that seems to be the case.

Q. Fabian, Wisconsin says

Proprietary dock that works only with surface device. Does not provide enough power to prevent surface book 2 15 inch from draining while under load. Hopefully microsoft releases a version with more power.

G. Franklin, Michigan

I received the device and connected it as instructed to my pro 3. The external display connections work, but the usb, ethernet, and audio ports don't. When i ran the firmware updater to try to fix this, it completely disabled my surface's built-in usb port, as well. I tried contacting microsoft support. After the tech remote-accessed my computer and asked me to log in to my online store and gmail accounts for him so he could view a proof of purchase, he said it would be at least 2-3 days before he could help me troubleshoot because they needed to verify the purchase. I went to the microsoft store. They brought out another dock and tried to get it to connect but weren't able to. We did a full wipe and reinstall of windows with no luck. The tech thinks the dock may somehow have burnt out my usb port, but he said there's nothing they can do about it. So now my surface has no functional usb ports, and microsoft refuses to help fix my computer or resolve the dock issues because i bought it from online store.

H. Bertie, Thueringen says

Not very impressed. This is supposed to be a premium dock to work with a premium device. Issues with display port outputs and poorly documented limitations with various functions. . That said, my user can dock her surface tablet and have wired access to the lan. Considering the terrible wifi in the building (not our building) it is a plus.

E. Susana, Sachsen-Anhalt

The upside - i was wary when i plugged in my monitor through the dock, using an existing mini displayport to hmdi cable that i had (as a result of reading all the negative reviews). I was pleasantly surprised to see that the monitor was displaying the extended screen just fine. Having said that, considering how much the dock costs, you shouldn't have to be concerned with whether it would work or not. So basically, it seems to be working fine for now, but i will be testing this with my monitor, mouse and keyboard set-up in the office and that would be the true test for whether the dock really works or not for me. . Update: the downside - i've probably spent an extra $40 just trying to find the "right" cable/adaptor to plug in my monitor. Somewhat ironic, but i have since found that the existing cables i had (a mini displayport to hdmi cable, and a "standard" mini displayport to vga adaptor, both aren't labeled "active") actually works perfectly fine, compared to the weird screen flickering that happens with the recommended "active mini dp to dvi adaptor". So yes, this works and its perfect for what i want it to do, but far too much trouble for something that costs as much as it does.

F. Anderson, Bromley says

Item arrived opened by another user. It had a hand written sticker saying that the item was missing parts. . This wasn't a brand new!

U. Guest, Kansas

I have both a surface book with the discrete graphics and a surface pro 3. Bought the dock so i can hook up to my home office monitors and keyboards to go to town on work. It has a couple of extra usb and 2 mini-dp ports for video. Great. . But a couple of things really need to be re-engineered for such an expensive product. - the "two brick" setup is a bit unwieldy. I get it that you might have to separate a large power supply from the electronics, but the interface from the usb/dp ports is pretty short, so if you wanted to hide the ports away from your device or declutter your immediate desktop. Well, it is more of a challenge. - the power/data interface is a hair longer than the standard charging port. The uptick here is you can't use the existing mini-dp connection on the surface book. Why is this important? see point 3. - the mini-dp ports on the dock don't seem to have enough signal strength to handle adapter cables. I have had problems getting the dock to work with multiple monitors, especially with display port and hdmi interfaces. I got my dell 28in monitor to work with display port by using a single cable rather than a mini/dp adapter to a dp/dp cable. Also, if i hooked up my second monitor (mini/hdmi to hdmi/hdmi), the surface goes crazy and i lose the external monitors. I don't have a mini/hdmi cable to see if a direct cable helps, but i suspect it will. If i were to hang it off the mini-dp on my surface book, i'm sure it would work, but per point 2 i can't. My guess is that the surface dock isn't able to provide a strong enough signal for adapters/longer cables. The internets says something about "passive/active" video adapters, but still a $200 dock should be able to handle all this. . I'm keeping because there isn't anything else really that will work with the surface to expand the ports (and keep the video performance) and i'll eventually get a mini-dp/hdmi cable. But dual head (tri-head if you count the surface itself) external connections seems to be out or very finicky right now.

L. Gladys, Barking and Dagenham says

Using this with a surface pro 4. This dock does mostly what it says:. - my display is beautiful through mdp to dvi - read other comments and l am not using a 4k nor do i need more than one display so cannot comment more here. - the ethernet port is working as advertised. - the usb ports however are under-powered. When plugging in a garmin navigator v for map updates, the dock immediately complained of a surge on the port and the port was disabled. I verified this behavior on all the ports. It's unfortunate for an expensive usb hub. The same happened on the single usb port on the surface pro 4 while plugged into ac. When plugging in a very inexpensive externally powered usb hub to one of the dock's usb ports (or to the usb port on the surface), the garmin was properly recognized but this shouldn't be necessarily with an externally powered dock. Hope microsoft will improve this dock going forward.

Y. Anonymous, Iowa

I've had nothing but trouble with this device. I got it primarily to attach usb devices and external monitors, and it has trouble with both functions. . If windows times out the monitor and blanks it, my surface book no longer sees the monitor at all. Since some surface 4 users have reported the same problem, i presume it's the dock's fault. It's necessary to disconnect and reconnect the dock (or power cycle it, or restart the surface) to get the monitors to come back up. They flash for fifteen or twenty seconds, and sometimes come back at 640x480 resolution, and i have to try again. . I've followed microsoft's guidelines, and use a direct displayport cable to my monitors. . Even when the displays are working, they flash every once in a while - six or eight times a day, for a fraction of a second up to two seconds. Very annoying. . When i got it, usb devices would continuously disconnect and reconnect. I found a partial solution, which is to turn off power management for the usb hub (in device manager). But i still can't leave my main backup external 4tb usb drive connected, because it will constantly rev up the disk and then rev it back down. None of these problems ever came up with my previous dock (for a lenovo w530). . I've updated to latest dock firmware. No difference i can see. . Maybe i just have a bad unit. You can decide for yourself whether to take that chance.

K. Colleen, Merton says

Update after using for one week:. If computer goes to sleep mode after being idle for a few minutes, it won't wake up with the dock and displays connected, mouse cursor won't move and the only way to make it work will be to force restart the system, it doesn't only kills time but i also lose my unsaved work. This is the exact same problem that many people here complained about. . Initial review:. Bought this dock last week. I read many reviews here on online store, microsoft website, best buy website and youtube prior to purchasing this dock, many people had complained about this dock not being able to support two displays at the same time. Since i wasn't able to find a third party dock to match my criteria, i took the risk and bought this, thinking that i can always return it if it didn't work for me. Fortunately i found it the best dock. It works flawlessly. No issues so far. Just so you know: i have a microsoft surface laptop and two external hp 22er monitors (displays). I purchased two mini displayport to hdmi cables (labeled: online store basics) and directly connected the monitors using the mini displayport to hdmi cables to the dock. That being said, i ignored microsoft's recommendation of using a converter and an hdmi cable, because in that case i would have spent more and i also didn't like so many cables and converters.

. Brendon, Haute-Normandie

I bought this dock to use with a surface laptop and samsung hd monitor (u28e590d) and have experienced some challenging issues that microsoft has yet to fix. The first one that can be addressed is only certain cables will allow you to achieve the hd resolution. There is a recommended list on microsoft's site. Second, the dock interferes with the laptop's wireless internet connection. It works fine on the laptop when used on a standalone basis and then as soon as you plug it into the dock the signal is either very weak or you cannot connect at all. The third is that the dock is incompatible with a large list of monitors, including mine. The way this made its appearance for me was that the monitor would never sleep when the computer slept, it just kept flashing on and off. This issue did not happen when plugging the monitor directly into the laptop, bypassing the dock. Microsoft tried to troubleshoot the dock to no avail and replaced it, but the replacement had the same issues. Microsoft has some work to do to make the dock a viable product.

. Josephine, Knowsley says

Pretty awful. I have this set up to run with 2 monitors and most days i spend 15-30 minutes rebooting, unplugging, switching cords and switching settings to try and get viewing on both screens. Between this and the surface pro these will be the first and last microsoft devices i will purchase. They just need to stick to software.

P. Audrey, Colorado

I bought this when my company issued me a surface pro 4. I work from home and require multiple monitors. Before you buy this item, try to determine if your existing monitors will work using the mini display port and the docking station. There are numerous complaints online about incompatibilities, and they're right. I could not enable the monitors i own, although each worked when connected directly to the laptop's on-board, mini display port. I kept the docking station and am using external video cards (usb) to use the same monitors. I prefer wired ethernet, (the surface tends to drop wireless connections), and i don't want to hassle testing another docking station that may or may not work with the laptop. If your main reason to buy the product is multiple monitors, here's your heads-up.

A. Emily, Camden says

Works as expected. Slightly heavy for its size, but still about 1000 times smaller than all other docs i've seen. I paired this with an active hdmi converter to make sure it recognizes the monitor correctly. Still not 100% good on docking and undocking and keeping my apps working well (i. E. Photoshop/autocad have super small menus and ribbons on the surface, but normal on the screen, it takes several settings in each apps menus to fix this, so its a pain that the software doesn't do this for me). Overall, i think the dock works fine, maybe just some software updates are needed on the surface

V. Sandra, New Hampshire

Docking station is okay. It works well for my external hd (for the most part) speakers, and ancillary devices. My issue is the monitor adapters which don't work and apparently have been giving people issues for the past couple of years. I'm able to hook my external monitors directly to the surface pro 4 which works, however it doesn't work for the actual dock itself. It's worked sporadically in the past and now doesn't at all. I know the issue isn't my adapters or the monitors which leaves the dock. This is frustrating since microsoft doesn't seem to care enough to fix this issue. And from what i've read it's one many people have and is not new by any means. I'd recommend this product but have limited expectations. Especially if you're like me and prefer to use two external monitors. This dock is not reliable.
