    I bought a Toshiba laptop and the Dynadock station together -- I hope seeing a consolidate review will help you understand capabilities of a complete package. Installing the Dynadock did take a little bit of time and I had to play around with making the connections work reliably. I would buy a Dynadock again; it's worth working through the installation issues and defining a connection procedure that works consistently. The T135-S1310 is excellent for travelling and use as a general purpose computer for business users, students or home users. It has good computing performance, features and a reasonable size and weight. I use a Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station when working at my home office. By plugging in one USB cable, I have access to a DVD/CD drive - not included with the T135, a full size keyboard, a SINGLE large HD monitor, good speakers, additional USB ports and a hard-wired internet connection. Although not perfect, I am very satisfied with the overall value & cost of this configuration. Up-side: 1. The screen is larger than a netbook, but small enough that I can work on an airplane - in the middle seat in the coach section. 2. The keyboard is OK - it took a couple of hours to get use to the touch and size - no complaints. 3. The overall size and weight are excellent - a netbook is too small for me, and other notebooks are too big and heavy for in-city commuting and long-distant travel. 4. The built-in Bluetooth capabilities allow me to use a larger mouse without sticking another external device into USB ports. - skip the Best Buy model since it lacks this feature and the extra price for a Bluetooth mouse is worth it. 5. This machine is exceptionally fast for most applications; the memory is more than adequate 6. Windows 7 seems to work OK even with the usual Microsoft bugs and time spent and pain suffered mind-melding with their creative-idiosyncrasies. People, it's an operating system! 7. The battery life is fantastic, and even better if I turn down the brightness level on the monitor! 8. The monitor is excellent, and even when dimmed to the max, it is good and much easier on my eyes. Down-side: 1. Finger prints on the shiny surfaces look disgusting! People, what are you thinking! 2. The buttons on the touchpad are way too hard to click and disappointing ---- usable, but OUCH! I prefer to use the mouse whenever possible. I've tried more than 15 laptops in stores before making purchases. 3. Do not expect to watch videos on an external HD monitor when plugged into the Toshiba Docking Station - not a huge problem for a work computer. Videos displayed on the laptop monitor really are excellent! Reliability Note: My first Toshiba is a different model that is less expensive, and too large and heavy for me. It is in the shop being serviced after about 9 months of use. I am very pleased with the responsiveness and efficiency of Toshiba's call-in technicians and procedure for sending the machine to the service center. To be realistic, I've never expected to get more than one year of useful life from laptops. I'm waiting to see how well the service center handles the repair. As with any laptop, make sure you backup critical files onto a thumb drive daily, and know how to reinstall applications such as MS-Office. Overall: I am thrilled with BOTH Toshiba computers, the Dynadock -- and the price point. I am extremely disappointed that consumers are buying shiny surfaces - hopefully this fad will end soon. The fingerprints I am looking at on this machine and my iPod are foul and disgusting. I AM a real guy and ABSOLUTELY NOT neat or clean! That is all! ;)

    In short, it works as stated. My System: Dell XPS15, DellU2311 Monitor, various USB peripherals. Some unrealistic expectations I see criticized: 1 - can't be expected to charge the laptop, that's unrealistic - most (maybe all) laptops cannot be charged via there USB ports. 2 - can't be expected to show the boot sequence of the system since the display drivers are not loaded - the laptop BIOS would have to support USB video and there are no computers that I know of that do that. As soon as the drivers load, you get the Windows Logon Screen. Driver: Toshiba needs to update their installer for Win7. I used the latest download from their site and the DisplayLink Drivers are no good. I found drivers that actually work on the DisplayLink.com site - INSTALL those First before trying to use the Dock. After I did that, it worked fine. With the correct drivers, I can use both displays (laptop and external - cloned only as stated) or one or the other each at full 1920x1080 resolution. Cons: 1- Graphics HDMI at 1920x1080 is draggy and not as responsive as native, but it works. I'll probably use the laptop mini-display-port; not much more trouble to plug that in and I don't dock/undock that often 2 - LAN at 10/100 is so last century - even the Laptop Wireless N is better than that. 3- USB 2.0; USB 3.0 would be a nice update - that might solve the laggy graphics and accommodate a faster NIC. Those unspectacular features diminish the value as compared to a USB hub which comes close to the same functions in practice if you don't use the graphics or LAN. Audio is fine, USB is fine. Thus 3 stars and I' recommend but with reservations...

    Works as advertised

    By Jana

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I purchased this so I could have remote access to my laptop without having to have it right in front of me all the time, so I purchased the dynadock and a wireless mouse and keyboard and it works fine for my needs. I hooked up an external monitor with built in speakers and hooked that up to the dynadock as well and the graphics and sound work just find being plugged into the dynadock (I have the U 3.0 dyna). The only improvements I could see that the unit needs is for it to power the laptop so you don't have to have an external power cord seperate from the dynadock to be able to charge the laptop. Also, it would be nice to be able to power on the laptop from the docking station, right now you have to lft the lid, let it power up, login, let it catch the external display and then shut the laptop lid, etc.. etc... but for me this takes <5 min so overall all even without the remote power-on or laptop charge capability it is still worth it to me. Personal choice/perference possibly. I did purchase this unit from a supplier other than toshiba and got it for substantially less money, although I did have to wait a few weeks since it was on back order, fyi.... Also, I've been in the tech field since '99 and have seen a lot of tech products come and go and this one works well for what it is advertised to do.

    Great product - forget the whiners

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I bought this dock in June 2009. No, I didn't pay the high end price listed on Toshiba Direct. Other retailers have it substantially cheaper. I was using it with a Dell laptop, now a high-end Lenovo. It works just fine. I'm driving a third WUXGA 1920x1200 monitor (two directly attached) from it with no problems. There is a little video lag, but this is a USB 2.0 version after all. I can watch full screen video with it, no problem. I use the USB ports extensively, but the network port rarely. Yes, I am anxious to get the USB 3.0 version. In short, this device has been a boon; reliable and useful. I don't know why some folks are maligning it. Perhaps they have a defective unit, or they are clueless. Go figure.

    Does the job

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    Overall, this is a decent product. It takes a while to install the software, but once that done it is easy to use. Improvements would be 1) power the laptop (not the end of the word) 2) support multiple monitors. I like this USB docking station because it is USB. I have 2 laptops (personal, and 1 for work) and one imac desktop on my desk. I rearely have a need for both my personal and work latptops at the same time. I have the lids closed, and the laptops stacked. WHen I need to switch, al I need to do is move the USB connection from one laptop to the other. A few people complained that 1) cannot get resolution higher than that of the monitor - my response to that is DUH! This is simply not possible. 2) machines shut off when you close the lid - another DUH! Check the power management setting on your machine - this has nothing to do with the docking station. sheesh!

    I decided to consolidate all my computing on my Toshiba Portege R700, which is a great machine. I wanted a desktop setup while in the office and decided to try a dynadock-U. I began setting up and connecting it 2 days ago and now have keyboard, mouse and 19 monitor connected. It's working flawlessly.

    1. Setup Easy and Quick -- less than 10 mins. 2. Setup and direction match, follow step by step. 3. Disappointments: . Dock does not power pc . While instructions tell you screen will blink, I feel good developers can fix this problem.

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    No idea what people have issues with, maybe it depends on the PC hardware, drivers, OS or version of hardware of the Dynadock, but it works pretty flawless for me. I am using every connector on it: All 6 USB ports are busy, I use networking, audio, display (1280x1024) and it works liek a charm, every day. it's connected to a modern samsung laptop with Windows 7 Home premium. I did not install a single driver, just connected it to the laptop and everything worked right out of the box, even displaylink (maybe installed by samsung, no idea if it comes with win7). I consider this an absolutly great product. While it's not exactly a dock in what business laptop users are used to, I consider it even better ... idependent of laptops, cheaper and just as nice. The only hiccup you get is if you fully load networking ... the mouse might jump then. Apart from that I have a reaosnably fast, clear and crisp display in everyday business use. I can't wait for the USB 3.0 DynaDock myself. (And no, I am in no way affiliated to Toshiba in any way, I just really consider this a fantastic product and have never seen any of the problems stated in the other posts here).

    This dockingstation was exactly what I was looking for. Enough USB-Ports und VGA. But it defenitly needs USB 3.00 for more Power! Hope that they're selling it soon!!!

    Look for a better Docking Station

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    1)This is not a docking station, but an external port replicator. 2) it does not handle more than 1 external monitor 3) after doing installation instructions, i continued to get a blue screen of death 4) had a technician figure out how to get past the blue screen, then sometimes it seems to just kick off on what appears to be random times and the only way i have figured out how to get it connected again (plugging it out and back in again doesn't work) is to restart my computer with it plugged in. Try a better system if you don't want these headaches.

    Worked on HP Failed on Toshiba

    By Paul

    from Pomona, CA

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I first installed the dyna dock II on my HP (Intel Quad and Windows 7) and that set-up was fine. When I installed it on my Toshiba (the manufacturer of computer and docking station) I was blue screened every time I turned on the computer with either the dyna dock II connected or later attached to USB 2.0 port...a total of 8 or 9 times. When I unplugged the dynadock II from the computer, the computer worked perfectly. I looked online and no solution or help from Toshiba was found. Finally, I ran across version 2.1.4.4 and downloaded that and still a blue screen. I finally uninstalled the video driver for the dynadock II and then the computer worked with no Blue Screen. However, the computer then reinstalled the dyna core drivers (by itself) on boot up. I then set the computer to no external monitor and increased the screen to 1900x1200 (my preference). So far, no problems. I am amazed that Toshiba cannot check these items with their own machines. I have a Satellite P755 Quad core and I am amazed that HP has better compatability than Toshiba. My HP is also a Quad core with Windows 7. If I had know the problems I would have, I would have bought from another manufacturer (found out it is overall cheaper and has a 500gb hard drive back-up and DVDRW). I am truly disappointed with Toshiba's lack of quality control.
