  • The Lenovo ThinkPad OneLink Dock is truly a garbage product. There is NO WAY you will ever get multiple monitors working properly with this dock. Lenovo's help desk is useless, and even the manufacturer does not know how many monitors and of what resolution can you connect to this damn piece of crap. Also, the connector is super flimsy, and a mere touch will disconnect the dock, causing all kinds of issues, such as losing your multi-monitor setup that you have managed to get working after literally months of trial-and-error, registry editing, and what not. After over two years of purchase, the constant screen flickering problem seems to have gotten much better, but I would never recommend this POS to anyone. Currently, I can get just ONE display with W550 and the dock: either the laptop's own screen, OR 1900x1200 ANALOG output from the laptop's VGA port. The dock's DP port at 2560x1440 stopped working when I touched the dock-to-laptop connector. Since other vendors' (much cheaper) USB-to-DVI gear won't (for no obvious reason, besides greed) work with this DisplayLink BS, I recently bought two of Lenovo's AN9017D1 USB-to-DVI adapters, but they work only barely and require you to turn off all HW video acceleration. In addition, the DisplayLink SW takes a large portion of the CPU power, and the adapters can only do 1900x1200 - anything above that would cost a sh*t ton of money.

  • Andy, can I ask, how did you hook up your second monitor to the one link pro dock? I have the x1 Carbon laptop and the one link pro. I've hooked one to the DP port and the other to the DVI-I via DVI-I to HDMI adapter and then connected it to my monitors HDMI port. My monitors only have HDMI, DP and mDP ports, no DVI or VGA ports. Do you think I will lose screen resolution quality going from DVI-I to HDMI adapter? Also, how did you get the monitor on your laptop to work while using the two external monitors. My two external monitors will only work if I have my laptop closed.

  • Any of you have tried this with ThinkPad S1 Yoga? Thanks

  • Guys I understand that there are individual item idiosyncracies & lemons, but I just love this onelink pro dock - and this is not a paid commercial ! I have 2 identical workstation setups as home & at work. 1 x Yoga 2 which runs with the lid open and 2 x 24" Samsung monitors running 1920x1200 resolution ie 3 monitors simultaneously. I also have an external keyboard & mouse, as well as my mobile phone plugged in. I work reasonably long days at one or the other station (at least 12 hours) without missing a beat. I'm demanding on my workstations & this setup works very well for me. And I live & work in darkest Africa.

  • Worst Laptop Dock I have ever purchased/used.  It took me 3 Docks + a firmware update + a month of time to actually get the Dock to recognize my external monitors....and now that they do connect I have ongoing issues with screens flickering and pixels freezing. Additionally, the Ethernet and sound ports on the dock are inferior to those on the laptop.   Apart from providing additional USB ports, the OneLink Pro Doc fails to deliver on the main functionality I require from a laptop dock (multiple monitors and ease of coming/going from my desk with my laptop).

  • It sucks. The dual screen functionality is broken. Just google OneLink Pro dual screen. There is all kinds of problems that still need to be sorted out with it.

  • If you work with the lid down, meaning only two external monitors and not using the laptop monitor. Then it's awesome!

  • Don't buy this dock. First read the problems related to it and how lenovo treat the fixes. I didn't expect lenovo to behave like this. Problems with sound, ethernet, always on power usb... (tested with yoga)

  • "zero hassle" would be true if you happen to get one that works as advertised...the original, and first replacements have resulted in a LOT of hassle here (the external display port does not work correctly - power management issues - first wouldn't stay OUT of power-save mode, the second won't stay in (result is a continuously flashing external display)

  • Will this thing work for powering up two Full HD 24" Screens with the new X1 Carbon?

  • It's too bad this dock doesn't work with the Thinkpad Yoga.  The ethernet will go in and out all day.  Some other users are reporting more significant problems as well:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Options-Accessories/Re-OneLink-network-port-flapping/td-p/1358947

  • driver-free dual vide? Now tell me Lenovo, why doesn't Dell Display Manager work anymore? Doesn't seem to be that "native."

  • So far, it's only available in Australia.

  • Is this available for purchase? I can't find it online

  • Good. However, in everyday use, if I have had two 22 and over inch monitors at my desk, I would not use the laptop display at all and also its keyboard. So, basically, I would use the computing power of laptop to display information on the large screens and use large keyboard for input. The dock in this case, would have to hold the whole laptop closed (vertically to save desk space).
