Use with X1 Carbon

Date:July 26, 2014
"I boughht this for use with my new X1 Carbon (v2). I dont know why some people says it doesnt power their laptop etc. It does. It has plenty of ports, charges my cellphone, has HDMI, and DVI outputs for monitor etc. The onlelink connector is pretty chunky and you have to remove the sealed plugs on the side of the X1 carbon, but that's OK.
The biggest drawback is the ethernet is super flaky. My X1 randomly says the ethernet cable is not connected. It has got so bad I have simply stopped using the ethernet port and just use wifi, which is slower and sort of defeats the purpose of the "docking" process.
Also support for the dock, any firmware upgrades?? is frankly rubbish!"

Random failures on Carbon X1

Date:July 21, 2014
"Using on Carbon X1
DVI monitor occasionally flickers / restarts.
Ethernet port randomly drops / stops working (reports Ethernet cable unplugged but it isn't)
3/10 times the computer will not wake
2/10 times the computer will freeze at "Lenovo" screen.
1/10 times the computer will start with "Starting Recovery..) and doesn't..
so half the time it doesn't allow a boot. I have to unplug the dock, boot then replug.
Device manager reports a USB error (Bad Set Address)

Very nice dock but on the fritz at 3 months

Date:July 18, 2014
"I really enjoyed using this with my X1 carbon gen2 but when I went to use it today the dock won't turn on at all. The red status light above the "i" in the ThinkPad logo (this is on the DOCK) doesn't light up anymore and although the power pass through still works, the USB ports, DVI out, etc etc are dead as a doorknob.
A little disappointed I am already returning this for a replacement but customer support was helpful so I have my fingers crossed. It's a really nice dock."

Bad Reviews are bogus

Date:July 8, 2014
"The X1 and TP Yoga both work great with this dock. There is a little plug next to the power plug you need to pull out. Well, if you keep it on Win8.1, can't speak for Linux or anything else you want to install.
Unless there is some old version of the carbon that doesn't have the plug (since they have been out for a while), but I know on the new ones we have yet to have an issue.
Now if Lenovo could only get the price down a bit..."

X1 Carbon

Date:April 16, 2014
"This does work with the X1 Carbon. You have to remove the rubber plug next to the power port on the X1, then this plug fits. All those reviews saying the X1 doesn't have this plug are wrong, they just didn't remove the rubber cap."

Best Dock for X1 Carbon (Gen 2)

Date:April 9, 2014
"This dock will charge the computer and let you wake it up without opening the lid, all with only one connection to the computer.
Note that this only works with the 2nd generation X1 Carbon laptops...people did not do their research correctly and are giving this dock bad reviews that it does not deserve.
You can identify 2nd generation X1 Carbon laptops by checking the type label on the bottom...if it starts with 20A7 or 20A8, it is a 2nd generation and will work with this dock."
