This Item: HP USB-C Dock G5 Docking Station - USB-C - HDMI - 2 x DP - GigE


Total Price:
HP SB USB-C Dock G5 - U.S. is rated 3.80 out of 5 by 162.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comprehensive hub, but has some issues with USB-A Works great as a hub for my peripherals, but does not always connect the USB-A devices (keyboard and mouse). For reference, I use this to switch between my laptop and desktop. It seems to work fine with the desktop, so there's a chance the USB-A issue is with my HP laptop rather than the hub itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All good so far! I had a Targus docking station and it began to give me a little issue so I investigated options. Since I'm an HP laptop owner I gravitated to an HP product this time and so far I am very pleased with my choice. Worked flawlessly and immediately from the get go. Just what I needed and is nice and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Features Did Not Work The dock was purchased so that my personal HP Laptop would have an easier connection to two external HP Monitors, & HP Printer. I learned that my personal HP Laptop does not support external monitors or charging through the USB-C connection. The solution is to have 4 connections into my laptop instead of one. The reason I was told is that my laptop is for consumer use, and the Dock is for commercial applications.

I worked for a day before the battery on their computer died an forced us to buy a new computer, the other worked for 2 weeks before causing the same issue with the 2nd computer. I was told I can’t return them because it’s over 30 days even though we didn’t take them out of the box for 2 weeks. All in all we are out 400 for the docks and 1800 for new computers that are not compatible with them now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice compact dock with a lot of port options Very Good Dock, and relatively compact. I am using it with a 2020 15 inch Spectra 360x. I purchased the dock from HP and it worked perfectly. I tried to purchase from Amazon, but it did not work, so buy direct from HP. An unexpected benefit is that the USB ports are powered even if my laptop is not attached, so I can use them to charge my iPhone and iPad at any time. I do wish you could decide the angle the USB-C cable comes out at. It limits placement options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this to use with my new laptop. It arrived before the laptop and after talking with a couple of computer nerds and reading the reviews I wasn't sure I would keep it. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and set up with the addition of a desktop monitor. This makes up for the lack of ports on the laptop allowing me to plug in what I need to plug in and making use of the HDMI port for my monitor without plugging and unplugging things Now I can keep the portable usb I have for use when traveling. For me it was worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOESNT CHARGE-NOT DOCK So i wouldnt call any of these 'docks' coming from the old one that charge and connect all peripherals. Just because your laptop shows up on their list of compatible devices DOES NOT mean its all you need. My desire was to have a HP ZBook 17 G6 Mobile Workstation hooked up at work and home for a user. And the ONLY thing needed was the laptop in both places. The user could use the charger that came with the laptop and laptop itself at home.. and at work they only needed to plug 1 wire (usb c) into the laptop. This is not how it works (as it did with the old 2013 slimdocks) With these you will need to buy ANOTHER charger that plugs into the laptop AND the usb for all the peripherals. This 'dock' and others come with a 120W charger standard and give no option for another, also this fact that they are 120w is NOWHERE on this site. One would think in the general page or the SPECS it would be. My laptops are all 200w. So obviously it wont charge while docked. If I could rate lower for the customer service i would. a few emails and many calls of simply being bounced back and forth from HP tech support to HP Store Sales because no one would accept the task of assisting me to get the required wattage or explain why its considered 'compatible' on the list if no power supply choices are given for higher 'compatible' systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Birthday Present for Me This dock was a birthday gift to myself, and boy was it worth it! It came in great packaging that kept it safe during its long journey, and when hooked up to my ProBook 450 G6 and my peripherals I can turn everything on with the push of a button. And when using Windows 10's display settings I can use both screens to expand my workspace. My take on it is that I can have a video on my monitor and my work, such as Email, on the laptop. All in all, it's a great way to do things! That's a fact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great docking station—minor issues Overall works very well. I have noticed that, when my laptop is connected to the docking station, the internal laptop microphone will not be recognized. For some reason the docking station wants to control the audio, so when there is no mic plugged into the docking station, the computer will register that the mic is “unplugged” and the audio input won’t work. Maybe a software issue that should be addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not compatible with my HP notebook Before buying this dock, I asked HP for confirmation that it would work with the USB-C port on my HP notebook. HP said that it would. They were wrong. Apparently my notebook uses USB-C only as an alternate power source and is not set up to pass audio/video signals via USB-C. To make matters worse, when I tried to return it, HP's website told me it was ineligible for return and refused to give me a return authorization. Moral of the story: Before buying this dock, check your computer's compatibility carefully. My rating is a composite: I give it five stars for features and zero for usefulness to me - at least until I buy a new notebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not compatible with HP Spectre or Pavilion laptop Some time ago my two external monitors just stopped working. I was using a StarTech docking station. I was told by HP that the StarTech was not compatible so I had to buy an HP docking station. The G5 was one of their recommendations. Did not work. Spent an hour with tech support today updating drivers and it still doesn't work. HP tech said it's a known issue that recent windows updates suddenly make docking stations stop working, but there is no resolution. He suggested I take the laptop to Best Buy and test it on docking stations. What a joke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice dock but failed Purchased this for my Spectre x360 about a month ago. Delivered quickly but had to wait for the Spectre to arrive (approx. 1 month). Plugged into USB-C on Spectre and my new LG UHD 4K monitor using the DisplayPort. Worked great for 3 days and for no apparent reason the DisplayPorts and HDMI just quit working :-(. Ethernet and USB ports continued to function. Updated firmware to no avail. Called support - they suggested an exchange. RMA in process and waiting for new dock to arrive. Hoping the replacement will last.

Problem is, that graphics where not compatible with my laptop so I had to cancel the replacement and return the deffective all together. The station does look great and seems to do the job just fine, but sadly I couldn't actually test it since it wasn't compatible. Make sure you check if your computer displays through C dock before you buy!

I have used this kind of product before, but cannot connect Macbook pro and ASUS laptop with Windows version, but I need to switch between two laptops. When I used this HP G5 dock, it can help connect my two monitors and accessories, such as my cell phone charger and apple watch, and even I have conference video call, and it still works perfect. I do not need to interrupt any services when switching different services, and also my laptop run very fast. This is very important for my job. I really enjoy this HP G5 with USB C/Thunderbolt ports, and the installation is also super easy, and I put on top of my stand, and it looks elegant. I am ready to purchase another one to replace my old doc at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dock! I bought this to use with my HP Elitebook x360 and 2 - HP Elitedisplay E223s (DisplayPort). I really like the fact that this dock charges my computer while connected. I initially experienced some difficulty with my monitors not automatically detecting a video signal upon connecting, which was easily solved by updating to the latest Intel HD 620 display driver (via HP Support - Drivers & Software, as my IT department doesn’t deploy the latest drivers as released). Works perfectly! No flickering or disconnection that I had previously experienced with other docking solutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not purchase for dual external monitors! I bought this docking station to connect my hp elitebook laptop to two hp external monitors. Works great for one monitor, but when I connect the second hp monitor, I get a limited resolution of 1280x1024 resulting in a blurry image on the second monitor. HP tried to send me a replacement dock, but had the same results. Only fix I can find that works it to connect the second monitor directly to my laptop, which defeats the purpose of having a docking station but I'm not sure what else to do otherwise my second monitor is worthless. I've wasted several hours waiting on hold with customer service and researching online how to resolve this issue. Hope my post saves you the buyer's remorse and/or your own frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Elegant, but... I bought the HP USB-C Dock G5, because the slim HP docking station I borrowed from work didn't work with my new HP Pavilion 27 QD monitor (my work-provided laptop is an HP Elitebook 830 G5). Since I bought a new docking unit, I went ahead and purchased another monitor just like my first one. But guess what? The HP USB-C Dock G5 can only support one of my new monitors at maximum resolution; the other monitor could only work at a lower resolution--which was practically useless to work with. Anyhow, I guess it's my fault for not reading the fine print of the specs, if it was spelled out in the document (but I don't remember seeing anything about its limitation when I read about it on HP's online store; otherwise I would have not purchased it at all. HP has a documentation on how to fix the problem, which I followed, but it didn't solve the problem because the requirement involved changing something in my laptop's BIOS that didn't even exist in my laptop to begin with. I plan to keep the unit nonetheless and I plan to give it to a needy relative, who probably don't mind working with inferior/dull monitors.

Being an IT professional I have multiple devices that I need to be able to hook up to dual displays and also have access to multiple accessories. I have used 2 other similar docks and had trouble switching between my MacBook Pro and Dell Windows 10 base laptop. Often various external devices would not connect correctly interrupting my conference calls etc. I am happy to say I have had ZERO issues when docking both of my devices with this HP G5 dock! It quickly powers on and just flat out works every time. This is a huge win for my daily hectic schedules which makes me an absolutely happy and satisfied customer! I will also be swapping out the 2 docks I have in place at my office with just 1 new HP G5 dock. If you are in the market for a USB-C dock I strongly suggest you give this device a try. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Just received this dock and am blown away by how well and simple it works. It is exactly what my desk needed to help organize all my cables, monitors, etc. I work in software and spend 10+ hours a day at my desk so having a tool like this to help consolidate all my displays as well as charge my laptop? That is freaking awesome. No more bringing my charger or adapters to work everyday to then unpack every night. Cosmetically, it also looks great on my desk under my monitor. Has a very low profile light that illuminates when plugged in to a device. USBC is 1m in length and seems to be very sturdy of a cable. Can't wait to get some more gadgets and maximize it to the fullest potential. Thanks HP! Side note: I primarily use a MacBook and it works great with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Display output not working The hub won’t allow me to broadcast to multiple monitors thru the USB-C port. Tried everything—drivers, updates, adapters, etc, even had tech support to no avail. Wish it had worked out. I like the compact nature of the device. Need to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. I use this with a ZBook G6 and it is convenient to only have to plug in the thunderbolt cable to connect keyboard, mouse, network, two monitors, headset, and power. The driver could use some improvement since the screens flash three times when waking up from sleep and sometimes only one wakes up. Generally though, it works well enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece Looking for a dock that would work with both our recent MacBooks and HP EliteBooks with USB-C. Worked very well with HP driving 2 external displays from either 2 displayport or 1 displayport & 1 HDMI. MacBook was able to drive both displays (extended) only when one was connected via DisplayPort and the other was connected using a USB-C to HDMI adapter. Dock was able to charge both laptops from single Thunderbolt connector. Exceptional quality. Five stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Connectivity Hub I got this product because my new HP computer only came with a few I/O ports and I needed to connect multiple monitors as well as a few accessory devices to get my work station up and going. I like the size of the hub at 5"x5" but the issue comes with hiding the power cable and block. Not too much of a big deal but it's kinda in the way and makes the back of my desk messy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Awesome Dock! I received this HP USB-C Dock G5 and was finally able to try it out for a week. My thoughts are simple: this product works as intended, the product has a durable feel, and all the necessary components and wires were included. I've always wanted a USB-C laptop dock but just couldn't justify getting from an unknown brand. However, that all changed with the HP branded dock. I really love the lightweight feel and thought that the dock was the appropriate size considering all the different attachments that you can add. Usually, docks are bulkier and contain more components that may be connected to but the price is unnecessarily huge. Anyhow, I feel that this is a good dock that I will use for a long while yet because it has all the connections that I need. No unnecessary fluff. I definitely enjoyed using the dock and my wife loves it as well. I think what could be improved upon this dock is probably a power brick that is built into the unit itself or improving the power output. Another thing is probably more colors to choose from. I am a huge fan of customization so the limited colors available might be a problem. I didn't take any stars off for it though because I understand that colors may not be the most important for a simple USB-C dock. I love using this dock and you will enjoy it too! Again, this product works as designed and I can't really find any faults besides what I have already mentioned. So overall, I would like to thank the manufacturer for providing such an amazing dock and I hope to get more HP products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer I work from home and I get entangled in wires and cords. What’s really nice about this dock is it is a built-in, all in one connection for my MacBook, USB, ports, HDMI cable, Ethernet, etc. If I need to be away from my charger, it has enough power to keep my laptop powered. You can plug in your second monitor or monitors for a professional setup at home. It’s all in one for all your electronic needs (phone, mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped for and more This thing is awesome. I needed a way to connect my HP work laptop to my two home monitors, but most docking stations/drivers I found online required installing software, which I am not allowed to do on my work computer. I bought this because it's also an HP product, hoping no installations would be necessary, and I was right. I just plugged it in and it just worked immediately! Plenty of space on the dock to plug in both monitors, a mouse, keyboard, and my headset. It also charges my laptop, meaning I can leave my charger at the office. I love this thing!

This has been perfect with no latency issues for video output. I even now run a ethernet connection to the doc so my system isn't completely reliant on the wifi signal. Also, I travel frequently for work; this doc is amazingly portable and I can bring it with me and plug it in no matter where I am on the go. Highly recommend this doc for anyone who works from home or travels frequently yet still needs plenty of connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dock with plenty of ports I've gone through a bunch of unpowered USB-C adaptors, but the trouble is that it ends up being yet another device with a tonne more cables attached to it. What I love with this USB-C Dock is that you can get rid of many of those cables, adaptors, and plugs. At 100W it can power your laptop meaning you can leave your laptop charger at home (or at work.) The cube is slightly bigger than I expected - it's about twice as tall and a little larger than a Macbook Pro charger, and quite a bit heavier so it's not going to be something I carry around, but rather leave plugged in at my workstation so I DON'T my charger around.) That said it's still relatively compact compared to other models. I plugged in my mouse, keyboard and monitor, everything worked seamlessly. I didn't have a second monitor in my home setup but you can actually power up to 3 screens with this unit (there are two DisplayPort connectors and one HDMI port.) I love that there are four USB 3.0 connectors) two on the side, two on the back. I'm sure as is the case with most of us, in addition to a mouse and keyboard we usually have a bunch of phones and devices to charge as well. I like this enough I plan to get another one so I can leave one at home and one at work! While there are cheaper models out there they usually have less ports and plugs and lower power to the system, so it's worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, functional work station! I have used the actual "dock in" docking stations for about a decade. Using best practices, I was always making sure my laptop was logged off so I didn't "hot dock" which was either a thing or it wasn't, depending on which IT professional I was speaking to. This thing is SO much simpler. It takes up about as much room as a CD case, and it was seriously plug & play right out of the box. I didn't have to download any drivers, and I had all the cords I needed. I do wonder why HP chooses to use the display port connectors, since they can be hard to find especially since many monitors have HDMI ports only. That would mean you have to buy an HDMI to DisplayPort cable, but I had them anyway so it's fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Docking Station Display Port support 4K at 30 Hz I have a HP zBook BANG & OLUFSEN laptop and recently hooked up a HP G5 Thunderbolt docking station #5TW10UT#ABA. All is well except the 2 Display Ports support 4K at 30 Hz NOT 60 Hz. This kinda sucks. My previous 6.5 year old docking station and laptop supported 4K at 60 Hz. It also doesn't charge the laptop very fast, since its driving power through the USB type-C connector. Other than these two items, the docking station is great. The LAN, two USB, work well. Size and form factor are nice. I like the USB type-C connector rather than the convention hard dock I had previously. I guess I wish the USB type-C cable was longer so I could place the docking station further away, and hide it and the cables from sight.

I also homeschool my children so it is imperative to maintain a clean and accessible environment for both my career and my children’s’ education. The HP USB-C dock is a lifesaver! I am able to add our accessories and equipment without making the desktop appear cluttered. I also utilize two displays so I can work and follow through with their progress online. The dock conveniently has display ports as well as HDMI 2.0 as well as multiple USB 3.0 slots (I can charge my phone!) I love that I can plug my workstation directly into this dock and not have to use my regular charging cable thus cutting down on the mess of wires. It is compact and very sleek. I am enjoying this dock thus far and will be sure to update again in the near future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some very good features, but poor documentation A good assortment of essential ports, and it works well when it is finally set up. But the design of the connection to the adapter and the lack of documentation cost me many hours, since it was impossible to find where to plug it in without the documentation that tech support had, but the product team did not see fit to provide to the customer. It's such a strange design (the adapter port is hidden in a T-shaped configuration on the bottom) that the first support person told me the adapter was for a different computer and to just not use it (huh? no power!). I was ready to return the dock as useless until the second support call was handled by a representative who was able to figure out that there MUST be a way to get power to the device. She finally consulted the documentation she had, found the port, and saved the day. So the lack of documentation for this product was a major problem. If I had it, I wouldn't have spent hours trying to figure it out before I spent several more hours on the phone. I had a similar problem with the Active Pen, which I have been unable to use. I opened a support case that is still unresolved. So I can't say I'm thrilled with my experience with HP accessories, but now that I have it set up, the dock does work well. My Dragonfly is an outstanding computer, and so far the documentation for that computer has been excellent. But the lack of useful information about the accessories really lets the designers of my wonderful new HP computer down. Please try to do better.

Also because I can turn on and turn off the laptop from the docking station. I keep my laptop lid closed and it is connected to a double screen monitors. So it is worth a price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Reliable Dock This dock is reliable, easy to install, has many ports to connect up to 3 monitors and a great deal of USB ports, including a USB-C port. I like that it is small which makes it ideal to transport between home and office. There is only one little option I wish we had on the dock, an extra HDMI port as it only has one HDMI port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will not support three monitors plus laptop All other plug in ports work fine, just will not support the proper resolution for all available video ports Recommend product with caveat or if you don't need three monitors you'll be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreliable We have around 24 of these in the office and they all exhibit the same issues. 1) The LAN port will randomly stop sending or receiving packets during use. 2) Monitors connected to the display ports will randomly not wake from sleep. The issues appear to be related to the dock's power management.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Travel Friendly The size is very compact is great for travelers, and comes with enough I/O ports for monitors, ethernet, headset, and other USB peripherals. The cable connection to the laptop is very sturdy, but it is not removeable for travel, and the straight usb male plug forces the cord to make a long loop or bend to the docking station (more of a design element). The computer connection cable is long which makes it well suited for larger desks where it can be placed farther away and out of sight, but for a smaller desk like mine, I have it next to my laptop, and therefore can see all the cables connected to it, compared to my old docking station where the cables stretched behind my laptop monitor. There are advantages I enjoyed with the earlier docking station design that made it more comfortable to use in the office, as it took less desk space since the laptop sat on top of most of it. Both designs work well in different ways, and hp design is clean and sleek.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple Monitors is a fiddle My work provided the dock. I use 3 DELL monitors (1x HDMI, 1x VGA, 1 x Displayport each) connected to my Dell Latitude 5400 laptop. I have noted (and experienced) the limited resolution when using the docks HDMI port, and wish it had 3 x HDMI. My solution was to get IT to provide 2 x DP to HDMI cables and unfortunately live with the minor inconvenience of the using laptop HDMI port for the 3rd monitor. (when using the G5 dock HDMI and 2 x DP's the HDMI resolution is restricted). We also tried 2 x Display port to display port cables and the HDMI to HDMI (the way the dock is designed so you would think it would work) but the HDMI resolution is still limited. This has to ba a consequence of the laptop video card not being able to drive 3 monitors or a limitation of the dock to pass through 3 display signals. I suspect the latter because the the laptop IS driving 3 displays when connected as I describe. It is a little inconvenient in not beibng able to use the dock in the manner it was designed with 3 display outputs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The G5 dock was purchased to allow me to connect multiple monitors. The dock has multiple ports which can be used to connect different items making my work space much cleaner. It was super easy to set up just unbox and plug everything in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works With Dell XPS 13 Bought the G5 to marry with HP Envy 13 two years ago. Recently acquired a Dell XPS 13 9310., with Thunderbolt 4. The G5 fired right up. Drives an HDMI connected 24" monitor, several hard drives, and powers the XPS all via one cable. Happy camper here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dock for a "work from home" office This dock delivers. One USB-C Thunderbolt cable to the HP laptop is all that is needed to drive 2 27 inch monitors, wireless mouse & keyboard, webcam, and a USB thumb drive. The cable also maintains a charge on the laptop and all that is needed is a single touch to the power button on the dock to wake the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Power No Display. We purchased two new HP Laptops with two USB-C Docks from HP. We've purchased a number of HP products over the years without any real issues. It appeared from the description we would be able to solve a couple of problems. We wanted to turn the laptops power on with their lid closed using the Docks power switch. We also wanted to be rid of the power cord charging the laptop while in use. The Laptops USB-C input isn't taking any input power from the Dock & there's no switching the laptop power on using the Dock. In addition, the Dock is not providing any video to the external display. Most everything else works, but we're still messing with plugging in the display & power cord in addition to the USB-C on the Laptop. We haven't had a response to Case#5074073132 yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific little docking station I've used docking stations from several different manufacturers, and my favorites have all been HP docks. They are easily the most consistently reliable docks. Docks from other manufacturers may be less expensive, but in my experience you do get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple multi-monitor setup While the device is not thunderbolt certified ( 4 stars not 5), it definitely pushes the bits through from my laptop. It drives two external monitors. My laptop is thunderbolt, but I guess that probably saved me some licencing fee money in the purchase price with dock not being certified. No hiccups. Just always works! And it stays cool to the touch, not a coffee warmer like my previous dock :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, Compact, and Works Great Ordered this docking station, came in the next day. It's small, and plugs into the computer/laptop via USB-C Cable, which is nice because it allows me to put my laptop in a more convenient area, and of course takes up less space. Works great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect if it was a universal dock For something that costs $229, it should be a universal dock but it's not. It works with newer HP laptops that have USB-C ports that are capable of Power Distribution (PD), so it's convenient that the dock can provide pass-through power to a new HP laptop. Unfortunately, the HDMI and Display Ports to connect external monitors don't work with non-HP laptop brands. So, I had to return the dock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Very stable and work great with HP laptops. I've tried 7 other USB C hubs and the newer G8 laptops seem to have more issues with those (shouldn't but do). Once I got these docks the issues went away. Fair amount of connections and I like that it has 2 options for monitors. You get what you pay for and these are buy and forget because you shouldn't have any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap Junk This product is out of stock on HP, so maybe they are discontinuing it. I received this from my employer and the station does not even power up. I checked the power cord to make sure it was functioning. The station itself is dead on arrival. What a waste of time setting up my desk then finding out the station is non-functioning. I miss my 4 year old Dell equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable failed after a couple of years of extremely light use Just like many others out there, my dock stopped charging my laptop. Replacing the stupid 1m cable attached internally fixed it. For something that's so expensive, I would expect the most-used part of it to be reliable.
