    Difficult to plug the USGBC port and not particularly user friendly. For my HP laptop I wish I had put in a little more money to buy an hp docking station.

    Closest thing to a “real” docking station that I have seen.* Everything hanging from my laptop, including dual monitors, is plugged into this device and when I need to, I just unplug two wires - the power and the USB-C connector to the dock. You can also buy it without the power option. A very good purchase. Would do it again and do recommend it. *I don’t mean this as a disparaging remark, but I think back to my days when I had a docking station for my IBM laptop. Put the laptop on the dock, click, and you’re done.

    It’s an okay dock if you’re on a budget. The colors were a little off on 1 monitor. Don’t have this issue with my lenovo dock. Returned.

      Hello Rodger,
      We appreciate you taking your time to post a review on the triple display docking station. The abnormal colors may have been the result of a bad video cable or possibly some settings with the monitor. In the future if you encounter anything like this feel free to contact the j5create customer support team. Our customer support team can be reached by phone, email, or live chat. You could find our contact information on the product packaging and on the j5create website under the support dropdown.
      Thank you,

    With usb-c connector, it works with both Mac and windows. No drivers needed and with adapter, it powers the laptop as well The output resolution is good enough and if external monitors have speakers, this docking station supports sound transfer as well The design is sleek and has a cable management which is only for usb-c cable It’s worth the cost and supports 3 monitors

      Hello,
      Thank you for choosing a J5Create docking station. This docking station works great with Windows and Mac OS. It provides extra USB ports and outputs for up to 3 additional monitors, plus much more. The dock can work without the drivers, but to get the full functionality out of the dock drivers are needed. It is really great to hear that you are enjoying the device.
      Thank you,

    I am using this product with my Dell 2 in 1 laptop and 2 desktop monitors. While I was unable to hookup to the USB-C on the laptop, I used a USB-A adapter and it works great. I use the monitors and wired peripherals and it resides under the laptop instead of on my already cluttered desk. Perfect for me.

    I bought this because it has 2 HDMI ports only one port works. Unfortunately, their tech support is only open from 8 am to6 although their website claims to have a live chat but apparently only during those hours. Both my HDMI cords work as I have unplugged and plugged them into the device alternating the monitors. I downloaded their driver. I am forced to return this back to the store due to the lack of documentation or support for this device.

      The JCD543 being compatible with both Mac and Windows OS' makes it an excellent choice since it wouldn't require two separate devices for use with each computer. One of the many reasons why the Docking Station is in high demand. Thanks for the excellent review!

    The dock it self seems fine, but if you are using a Mac beware that this only works if you install their proprietary driver. I found that driver had stability issues with the Mac, and they still don't have a driver for Big Sur available so I couldn't run it on my second Mac which is one of the new M1 Macbooks. I returned it in favor of a standard hub that did not require special drivers. May be fine for Windows users.

(NOTE: This driver is NOT compatible with M1 Chip mac books & macOS 11.2 Big Sur BETA we advise to disable automatic updates and do NOT update to Big Sur 11.2 at this time).

    Connection, Use with laptop

    I bought this USB-C Dock to support an additional display and multiple connections. I didn't like the way all the cables were connecting into my laptop from a cable management standpoint and a wear and tear of those ports were a concern as I was continually plugging and unplugging cables when I wanted to be mobile with my laptop. This dock works great, no issues what-so-ever.

      Hello,
      Having a docking station that connects with a single cable is a great way to add functionality to your laptop while still having it easy to pick up and go. Great to hear that there have been no issues.

    Use with laptop

    Overall I liked this dock. It has got the 90W USB Type-C power supply. This delivers the power when the laptop is connected which I like. I have a personal and work laptop, an android phone. This one charger is handy when travel. I was able to access all my peripherals when connected. Only issue was with my HP laptop, sometimes when the PC is locked, the external hard drive was not recognized and I have to unplug and connect the main power supply again. This is even after the recommended drivers. I have not experience this issue with my Dell work laptop so far. Overall this product is okay, ideally should be sold for about $100.

    Pros mentioned:
    Compact

    This docking station has provided much needed additional display capability. It is compact, yet offers several ports in USB, USB-C and HDMI. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Cons mentioned:
    Connection

    I had purchased two of these units (JCD543P), one for a Lenovo P73 and another for a Lenovo C940. The external monitors worked correctly on all ports and with two monitors connected, the external wireless mouse transceivers over all USB3 A ports worked correctly, however external hard drives over USB3 A ports did not work well. With PC plugged into external power, the issues were: without the dock power adapter plugged into the dock, when a single external hard drive was plugged in, the drive was momentarily seen, but inaccessible, then after a couple minutes was not recognized; with the dock power adapter plugged in, the drive was seen after a couple of minutes, clicked on the drive, sub-folders were seen, but could not drill down further as the drive was not fully accessible. Then after a couple of more minutes, the drive was not recognized. Two of these units were purchased, each one used on each of the above PCs, same issue on both systems with each dock, and the latest J5Create drivers were used. Both units were returned and I purchased the J5Create JCD381. When the JCD381 drivers were loaded, the installation recognized the latest J5Create drivers were already installed. When the JCD381 was plugged in, the same externals as before were tested, each drive was readily accessible, and both the HDMI ports were hooked up to externals, all without additional power connected to the adapter. This unit worked better than the JCD543P units.
