Customer ratings and reviews for Targus USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Dual Video Docking Station With Power

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good hub Overall this is a very good and stable hub. No disconnections, flickers, no hiccups. If you are going to use this with a Windows 8 PC, please do NOT install the drivers that came in the box. Go to their website, find it by model # (look in the box) and then get the software from there. If you get the latest drivers, everything works. Only one complaint. I use 2 extra monitors, DVI and USB, every now and then in the extra monitors there is a small problem with the mouse cursor where it jumps. I don't know if this is a Windows 8 problem or a problem with the HUB. For me it is not a big issue because the extra monitors are just to keep other windows that I don't use that often for reference. Overall for me it works, allows me to just plug in one USB cable to my notebook and looks cleaner. February 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 It Works for Me! With some trepidation, I ordered this docking station to use with my new HP Envy m6-1125dx 64-bit Windows 8 laptop. After using business laptops with custom-made docking stations for years, I hadn't thought too much about the process of finding a docking station for this consumer laptop. As it turned out, it took a bit of a search. I learned about the latest generation of "universal" docking stations which are made possible by USB 3.0, as I understand it. Two reps at HP's Boise Sales Office (who were great, by the way) told me that the Targus ACP71USZ would work with my laptop (which has a USB 3.0 port), in spite of a review to the contrary on the HP website page describing the unit. In fact, they said, the Targus unit was connected to the same laptop in the "playpen" in their office, and they could vouch for the fact that it worked. So, I ordered it from Amazon. When it arrived, I followed advice others had offered in other reviews: (1) update your USB 3.0 host controller driver (mine was current); (2) download the latest drivers from Targus or Displaylink (ignore the CD that comes with the unit). Turns out DisplayLink had a newer version than Targus itself did, so I downloaded and installed it before connecting the unit to my laptop. Contrary to other reviews, the docking station DID have a power tip to fit my laptop, which was a relief, so the laptop charges when it's connected to the dock. Everything else (wireless keyboard and mouse, audio, printer) is powered through the USB 3.0 cable which connects to the dock. Once connected, the laptop recognized the dock, and everything worked just as I hoped, with no noticeable loss in performance! I like the fact that the docking station will accommodate any laptop for which there is a power tip, so this should be the last docking station I need to buy. The unit itself is very well made, and reflects a nice design. It even fits nicely within my monitor stand! Finding the power tips is a bit tricky (the HP reps were helpful here too); you flip up a door on top of the unit to reveal a compartment with 8 different tips. All in all, armed with the advice from previous reviewers and the HP reps, it was a piece of cake, proving it pays to do your research, I guess. Judging from the reviews, I guess the ACP71USZ will work with some laptops and not others, and in the final analysis there is really only one way to find out: order it from a store with a reasonable return policy and try it out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Power connection and instructions Connection to computer is through USB cord - not explained in documentation. The power connector for the HP Envy does not engage well and also does not stay in. Apple magnetic system is much better. November 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A REAL person answered the phone. After opening the product and downloading the disc nothing happen, and no further instructions were given. Dreading 'the call' I almost fell out of the chair when a real person answered the phone. She walked me through the set-up which included downloading and installing newer drivers, and attaching each device one at a time to the docking station. The docking station preforms flawlessly, Ican hook it up to my larger monitor and old keyboard, or move into the living room and play games on the HDTV. Both product and service are EXCELLENT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works like it should A lot of rumblings about this dock. I too had some issues upon first starting, but they were quickly resolved. Instructions said for Win 7 to just plug it in. Well, nothing happened until I used the available installation CD. From there, everything went as it should. The available assortment of power adapters are a nice touch as this should work with most laptops out there. I used the inclosed DVI to VGA adapter so that it's a simple process to go from my desktop to laptop using the 23 inch LG monitor. One thing I've read it should be worth noting is that I checked my USB 3 Host Controller Driver to make sure I had the latest. My laptop came with the latest driver so nothing required from me there but I'd certainly make sure before plugging everything in. It's always nice when things work like they should, and so far, I highly recommend this dock. November 1, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by The product did not work with my HP2540P Terrible docking station. You have to to use several adapters, the power supply did not match HP2540P power supply. Had to open up the PC to turn on PC, then change monitor settings, before I could use the monitor. I could not turn on my PC from the docking station?? Returned immediately for refund and ordered the HP prooduct through my business. August 31, 2012
