    Lenovo 40A50230US reviews

    ThinkPad Workstation Dock is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very convenient I recently replaced a Lenovo W530 laptop and similar dock with the P50 and this dock. The dock has enough ports for what I need and makes my desktop much less cluttered. My only complaint is that this system (not sure if it's the dock or laptop) does not boot correctly about 1/3 of the time when in the dock. It either hangs on a 'Lenovo' screen that can only be seen by opening the laptop, or boots with the desktop duplicated at incorrect resolution across all monitors (I use 3 currently). Simply rebooting fixes these issues 100% of the time so far, so it's mostly just an inconvenience. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The workstation dock 230w does not perform well I recently purchased a Lenovo Workstation Dock 230W for my new Thinkpad P71 (OS Win 10). I tried to hook up two monitors to it and it did not perform as expected. Major problem: After waking up the laptop, the monitors stay black indicating no signal. I had to undock the laptop, liftup the lid, log on, and re-dock it. The monitors light up with low resolutions (600 x 800), and I had to reboot the laptop to gain correct resolutions. I updated the firmware to version 2.33.000 per instructions online. Not helpful! The both monitors work perfect with my old thinkpad laptop (Win 7) and its dock. The new dock wasted me whole day and it is very frustrating. Suggest not to buy this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No working external monitors on Linux I'm using the dockstation with Ubuntu 16.04 (kernel 4.7.3) but I cannot get multiple external monitors working if they are attached to the dock station. They work fine and as expected if they are attached directly to the laptop via available ports. Sorry, but that's an indecency.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lot of problems with USB connections My workstation dock has a lot of problems with the USB- connectors sometimes working fine, sometimes without any function (Not able to connect a even computer mouse). Firmware is already updated to 2.30...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with P51 and Ubuntu 18.04 (dev beta) I have been using this docking station with my P51 running Ubuntu 18.04 (dev beta) successfully for a couple of months now. I have an external ultra-wide monitor, keyboard, and mouse connected to the dock. Using the default configuration it works as long as I plug the laptop in when it is powered off and power off the laptop to remove it from the dock. I have not tried using sound through the dock. All the little problems I have run into are caused by Lenovo not publishing drivers for Ubuntu, not the dock itself.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't support multiple monitors We've spent hours trying to get this dock to work with external monitors. The Firmware Update utility fails to work, so even with a monitor plugged in we can't get it to update. In the end all I'm using it for now is power, I have to manually plugin my monitors each time I plug in my PC. While I really like my P71 laptop, I can't say I'd go with Lenovo again due to this useless non-functioning device. For the next 2-3 years I'm going to need to plug and unplug my monitor cables ever time I move my laptop. Don't make the same mistake, don't buy this dock.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from P50 Great, Docking Station not so I love the P50 but was very disappointed that the dual external monitors were not supported for Ubuntu. Relegated to using Ubuntu in a Windows virtual machine. Fortunately, the P50 has plenty of memory.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and use your laptop with this dock. Just got this dock for my son in college. It's so much easier on the laptop ports than plugging and unplugging monitors, mice, laptops, etc. after class each day. Pricy but very useful.
