The size: It's quite small and extremely light, making for easy transportation
Sturdy design: It feels well-made, I wouldn't expect a few drops or knocks to worry it at all.
Short connection cable: Unless your notebook USB ports are located exactly where is most practical for you, the short included USB connection cable may see this device (and the three cables coming out of it) in your way.
Lack of features: With only one USB output and one monitor port being available at any time, the capabilities of this product are limited for some applications.
Coming in at $81.99, this portable docking station is a handy tool if you're travelling with an ultra-thin device like a Zenbook or Apple MacBook and wish to easily enable monitor and LAN support without using various adaptors.
At first installing the drivers is quite daunting and seemingly difficult, however, you'll find that this product is very easy to use in the long-run.
It would be great to see multi-monitor display set-ups be available in the future, alongside more USB ports and a longer connection cable. However, if you're looking for something that is small, light and better priced than most, HIS has a good option for you here to consider if it matches your setup requirements.
