    ZBook 150W Thunderbolt 3 Dock is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design Issues I really wanted to give this docking station more stars because it has all the ports I need and it is compact and easy to travel with, but the design leaves much to be desired. The cable connecting the docking station to the laptop is extremely stiff and offset by 180 degrees between the docking station and the laptop. So if you place the laptop and docking station on flat horizontal surfaces, you HAVE to twist the short stiff cable 180 degrees. My desk space is somewhat small, so I have to keep the docking station very close to the laptop which puts even more stress on the stiff cable and makes it look very awkward.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Always has issues This product sucks . I was provided this product by my work and I have already gone through two because I've had so many issues with it. I use it hook my HP Z book to two external monitors, mouse, keyboard, and ethernet cord. However, lately I've given up on the mouse and keyboard because they frequently disconnect for a second and this is very frustrating while typing reports. I also had multiple days where I can't get it work at all (like today) even after updating the latest firmware and restarting my laptop. Moral of the story is this product does not work consistently and only cause headaches. If my laptop had two ports for my monitors I would get rid of it all together.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as traditional HP docks It's unfortunate that HP did not design the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to provide the same feature set as traditional docks. This dock lacks any pre-boot operability, which means no support for Wake on LAN or keyboard and mouse before the OS has booted. This may be acceptable for a consumer grade product, but certainly not for a flagship enterprise product. No more managing end-user devices remotely with the direction HP has taken with this product. Further, the docks have been unreliable to this point. A search of the support forums will show several months worth of customers trying to get this product working properly in their environments.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ZBook 150W Thunderbolt Dock washed out to sea Granted... I have lots of issues with the "docking" of the Zbook G3 I have, but as for this docking bar I find it hard to decide where to begin Docking Cable... 0.5m cable = WAY too short (could use about 50% more length). I don't have a clue what twisted thought process of put the port for the cable on the left end of the back side (assuming you'd want the power button facing the front) when the patching port for the cable appears on the right side of the notebook... which brings me immediately to... Why on EARTH would you put the port for the stiff Thunderbolt 3 + power cable on the OUTSIDE of the power port adapter... and then ship the blasted device with a 90° power cord?!?!? This means the power cord either has to pass under or over the Thunderbolt 3 + power cable or over the top... because otherwise the power cable interferes with the other thunderbolt port on the dock. Speaking of "what possessed you to..." Why would you put two DisplayPort ports and a VGA on the Dock... but the Zbook comes with HDMI and VGA. Thank heavens I still have a DisplayPort cable for my monitor... but imagine my surprise when I unplugged my HDMI cable from the Zbook and realized... wait... this has no HDMI ports on it! I also found it a little odd to find both VGA and the CAT5 ports on the opposite end of the Dock than where they appear on the Zbook. From a functional and Engineering design I would give this a resounding D- (for that matter this would have thrown the curve so far that even Peppermint Patty from "Peanuts" would have gotten a D or maybe even a C) Shipping it with a right-angle power cord... just daft... and then putting the power cord inside other ports just defies logic. If you want somewhere to use a right-angle, put it on one end of the blasted cable for connecting the notebook so that the cable doesn't have to bend 180° to get to the Dock or at the very least... the port on the Dock should go on the complete opposite end. Since my parents raised me with that "if you can't say anything nice..." matra... I feel compelled to find SOMETHING positive to say "Think. Think. Think." - Winnie the Pooh Did it work when I plugged everything in? Yes After plugging it all in could I turn on the notebook without lifting the lid? Yes Did my two monitors work (using a VGA and a DisplayPort cable)? Yes Do I now have some free USB ports on my notebook? Yes

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buggy and Unreliable Our HP laptops at work use these new Thunderbolt docks, and they have been nothing but trouble. Docking and undocking rarely works correctly, and sometimes devices plugged into the dock just disappear for no reason. And this is *after* installing all of the various BIOS, firmware, and driver updates that HP has published. HP needs to stop shipping half baked hardware, and instead focus on making sure stuff works reliably BEFORE they ship it. I used to be a big fan of HP hardware, but I simply cannot recommend it anymore. Caveat emptor.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't quite meet expectations Most of the ports on my Thunderbolt 3 work fine, however, I have not been able to get any of the display ports to work with either of the two monitors in my house (though those monitors work fine with both Mac's and PC's and even with my new HP laptop when plugged in directly to the laptop). I'm on my 2nd Thunderbolt 3 and have spent many hours trouble shooting the problem but to no avail. Also, the cable that is supplied with the unit is too short, it needs to be lengthened by at least 6-12 inches or more.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Except for the Cable - not recommended I purchased this dock for the zBook G3 I got last month. A key reason for getting the dock was to eliminate the cable that protrudes from the right side of the latop - the HDMI display cable that goes to my 4K monitor. The cable sticks out and gets in the way of where I use an external mouse. In the original picture for the dock, which was shown when I purchased it, the cable that goes from the zBook to the dock has a right-angle connection, just like the power cord the zBookcomes with. This would be perfect and what I expected - a nice right-angle connection to keep the cable out of the way from the use of my mouse. Unfortunately, the cable I received with the dock does not have a right-angle connection and sticks out in the way of where I want to use the mouse. That right-angle cable connection was the key reason I purchased the dock. Consequently, I'm disappointed. I noticed the picture for this product has been updated and no longer shows the right-angle cable -- too bad. The dock itself is working fine - just doesn't solve my core reason for wanting to buy it. It does consolidate other cables that now go to the dock and not the laptop.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable, sensitive, and spatially challenged "Touchy" is the right word for it. I think it depends heavily on what type, brand, and quantity of 'stuff' you're hooking up to it. If you're like me, and you want a dock/port redirector like this to turn your laptop into a full-blown desktop experience...maybe a little 'buyer beware' here then. I'm in IT - and I work from home. I have this hooked up to my Zbook 15 G3. The peripherals involved aren't crazy - 3 Asus 23" LED monitors (new but not bleeding edge) - two on HDMI/DisplayPort, 1 on VGA, a popular Logitech cordless mouse, the Microsoft Natural keyboard 4000 (USB not wireless), I'm using the NIC (RJ45) on the dock, and the extra USB port to charge an external device...oh and some Bose speakers. I'll say this - everything works...now...mostly. I still deal with the whole computer freezing on me until I disconnect the Zbook - after which I can reconnect it and it seems fine but that's irritating. And today it started not charging my laptop's battery when plugged in too. So it can work, but not without monkeying with it. The support forums all say that there are a number of different combinations of drivers, firmware, and support software (and multiple versions of each) provided by HP and you have to hit the right combo of all of them to get it to work. For me (Windows 10) I did have to load the Asmedia USB Host Controller Driver with the Conexant HP Dock Audio, and the Thunderbolt software. I think I needed to do a firmware update too. So if you're willing to monkey with it - you can make it work. Find a stable place to set the laptop and the dock because once it's connected, if you touch the cable at all, the screens will blip. And everytime Windows updates roll through I hold my breath. So...it's sort of like a Chevy. If you like working on it and aren't thrown off by the occasional maintenance, dive in. If you're one of those "I just want it to work" types - swim at your own risk. And I have to echo all the same sentiments about the awkwardness of the cable - no 90 degree angle, & way too short. This is easily fixed HP. Let me buy a better version of the cable - one that is longer PLEASE.
