" ...  I've been using several Plugable docking stations in the office with PCs, so I knew beforehand what to expect in terms of quality.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I ran Speedtest and my Internet connection was just as fast as the laptop connected directly. ... I have three screens running (two 27" HDMI plus the laptop) all at their recommend resolutions.  ...  "

" ...  I use it to drive 2 25" HDMI screens, wireless keyboard and mouse plus 2 large external hard drives.  ...  "

" ...  I was slightly concerned, as my laptop is about 15 years old, but everything connected seamlessly, and the dual-monitor setup worked immediately.  ...  "

" ...  A dual monitor dock for $150 is high, but this one does work well and seems to be solid.  ...  "

" ...  I know it was the KVM because my primary PC which does not use a docking port also had occasional issues recognizing both monitors.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have a dual monitor setup with a new Dell XPS 15" laptop with a 4k built-in display. ... I was concerned that it might not push the signal at 4k to both monitors, but it worked perfectly - both of the external monitors have 4k resolution and there were none of the mirroring issues I've run into with other docks that will only mirror the displays - if you've run into this limitation, you know what I'm talking about and how infuriating it can be. ... Ethernet and usb and everything else I've tried so far works great too.  ...  "
