The 230W Advanced Docking Station from HP quickly provides desktop convenience with port replication and charging capabilities for select HP notebooks. This docking system offers an integrated SATA-based upgrade bay that can house a hard drive or an optical drive and comes with a variety of interfaces, which deliver full port replication. The dock has four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, allowing you to connect printers and external storage drives as well as charge battery-powered devices. For video and sound needs, it sports two DisplayPorts, one VGA port, two DVI-D ports, and two 3.5mm audio jacks. To support legacy devices, serial, parallel, eSATA, and two PS/2 ports are on board. There's also an Ethernet port for accessing the network.

HP has equipped this dock with a security design that helps prevent theft of the dock and your HP notebook when utilizing an optional cable lock. This design delivers two options to lock the docking station only or both devices. Included along with the docking station is a 230W AC power adapter that charges your HP notebook and USB devices.

The integrated upgrade bay lets you use a hard drive or optical drive for additional storage while docked.
Supports the optional HP Docking Station Cable Lock, which gives you two security options: lock the docking station only (which also prevents access to the Advanced Docking Station drive bay); or lock both the docking station and your notebook for additional security. Also supports an industry standard notebook lock.

    230W Advanced Docking Station is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, get it. So much better than plugging in all my cables, and it let me use an additional monitor with a digital connection and finally have an eSATA port (which is oddly not on the ZBook 17 for such a high-end workstation laptop). Also there is a bay for adding an optical drive, which you can convert to another hard drive with a little $ adapter. My only reason for not having 5 stars is that they could've put in some more features like a couple more hard drive bays, another Thunderbolt port (laptop only has one compared to two on a Mac Book Pro), and/or a digital audio output. Any of those would've really enhanced the value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Office to Home I dock a ZBook 15 now. I have two of these docking stations, one at the office and the other at home. It helps me have the same computing experience at both places. I have 3 displays in the office and two at home. The only thing that I wish HP would add is a 3rd set of Display Ports to the docking station so that I would not have to use the VGA port at the office for my 3rd display. I would have just used the Display Port on the side of the ZBook for the 3rd display but it is disabled when docked unlike my EliteBook 8460p.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money for the performance As I had to replace my desktop with a temporary laptop/docking station arrangement, this turned out to be a great choice. With two DVI ports, this station supports both of my monitors. Although it also supports HDMI, I am not using that function yet. It also has 4 USB ports on the right side, however, I highly recommend using a USB hub if you can (I'd suggest that no matter what system you have). I was surprised to find an expansion slot for a SATA removable drive. If I were to permanently replace my desktop with a laptop, this would be the docking station to make it happen. The bonus - which is why I chose this docking station and laptop in the first place - is that I can now use my work-issued laptop as I would my home laptop - multiple screens, webcam, theater sound and all. Downside - it does use a lot of power (230W). But that's true with any high performance device.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The docking station works perfectly. The docking station is simple to set up and use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from UGLY AND FRICKING HUGH COLOSSAL, BIG, immense, massive,vast, bulky, gigantic humongous with the LARGEST FOOT PRINT I have ever seen. When used with a Z-BOOK 17 Laptop, it takes up a 3' x 2.5' area. That is 7 1/2+ square area on the counter or desk. Using a normal desk, half the desk is not usable because of this Advanced Docking Station. I was replacing a dv9000 17, this item is as bad as the Z-Book I reviewed. Not a good design by HP. Even the box is a whopping volumous size. Wiring is coming out of 3 sides, the 4 is used by the Z-BK. If I used the vernacular I like, this would not be printable and I'm already considering selling both items. Add the two 24 monitors, keyboard and mouse. Space is at a premium on my desk and it is 7' long and 3' width. And the power supply, another item larger than a red brick. Disappointed, YES! NO RECOMMENDATION TO A FRIEND, ENEMY, OK. Photo's/Video's not wasting anymore of my time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really bad product!!! I purchased one of this docking stations for my hp elite 8540p. Guess what? it doesn't freaking work!!! my God man! It does not power the laptop despite several technical maneuvers. I don't recommended at all. HP makes really computers and servers, but they really ruined here with this dock station.
