    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...

    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.

    DO NOT BUY IT !!!

    By Mike

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I agree with all other reviews. The external monitor is lagging, which defeats one of the main purposes of the docking station. But I have another problem, which I contribute to the Dynadock, since everything was fine before installing it. The power monitor icon disappeared/was turned off by Dynadock software and COULD NOT be turned back on by any means suggested by the Microsoft and blogs. Microsoft techs worked remotely on my computer for several days and could not do it either. I had to re-install the Windows 7 (received directly from Microsoft because Toshiba does not provide the Windows CD) from scratch, and consequently, reinstall all other programs. Luckely, I had the data backup. The simple powered USB multiplexer will do the same, but better, and will not mess up the OS.

    very poor video performance

    By Francisco

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    The Dynadock has turned my first Toshiba experience into a nightmare. It boils down to the Dynadock's handling of my video monitor: there is a lag, the mouse drags and every now and then it blocks my computer forcing me to do a manual shutdown. Do not buy this product!

    I'm very disappointed

    By Ron

    from Calabasas, CA

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I looked forward to getting my Dynadock U and using it with my Qosmio 500 series notebook. Unfortunately, my experience has left me looking for a new solution. The Dynadock U will not let me shut down my computer. Before I stopped using it, I had to do a hard powerdown whenever I wanted to stop using my computer. Even when it tried to go into sleep mode, the Dynadock prevented it from coming back up. I'm running Windows 7 with a pretty plain vanilla set up. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement.

    Poor quality docking station

    By mrohio

    from buffalo, ny

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    This docking station is simply for a USB hub, no power to the notebook and poor video connection. For example, movie files can not run on the secondary monitor. Power point slide show doesn't work on both monitor at all. LAN connection through another network MAC address (I had to register the docking station's MAC address to my institute's networking office). Once I used a Dell's docking station, which provided all such functions. But this DyanaDock U failed. I don't recommend this docking station.

    WORKS BETTER THAN I THOUGHT

    By Jim

    from NC

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    I bought this dock to go along with my new P500. I do a lot of video astronomy and have a extra monitor and telescope control software running along with other items. It worked right out of the box saw each connection and has been flawless. Thought maybe I would have a few conflicts , but didn't have any. Also thought I would have some delays with speed, but that also is not the case. Very happy with the dynadock.

    Lots of capability

    By healthylaff

    from PNW

    Comments about Toshiba Dynadock USB Docking Station:

    Docking is so superior to plain old USB hubs or port replicators. This supplies input for and connection of: -my network cat-5 cable -all my peripherals like mouse and keyboard -my magicJack -flash drives -a beautiful LG 1920x1200 ext. monitor, that's 16:10 aspect ratio! Plus, when I need it, I unplug my new Win7 laptop, so I can use it and its own keyboard, touchpad, networking, monitor, etc. and plug my old WinXP desktop into the dock and everything's already connected--all by unplugging and re-plugging one USB cable!! Highly recommended.
