I have a Toshiba Dynadock DVI, for office work, document editing etc. it is good, you won`t feel any laggyness, however for video viewing it is very bad, but mine works with USB 2.0 so it doesn`t have the necessary bandwidth to handle videos.

Since this one is USB 3.0 compatible I think it removes most of the bandwith issues, but it`s only my guess.

video playback would be my minimum level of performance, but fair enough on USB 2.0


the big thing i see, is that people buy these as a dock to use an external screen or projector - and if its too slow for video playback, a lot of uses suddenly get thrown out.
