Dell D3100 Docking Station works great with Mac Laptop

One problem...... the two attached displays seem to blink off once and while.  This problem appears to be associated with power supplied to peripherals attached to the Dell unit.
I would recommend powered USB hubs.

Using very successfully  ..........   I love this device.

MacIntosh MacPro Laptop with USB3.0 port as link to the D3100
                  I am using OS X 10.10.5
Two HDMI displays
Ethernet cable
USB 2.0 hub   ( for isolation and to reduce connector wear )
USB mouse
USB drawing pad
Powered external speakers

I used HDMI to DVI adapter since my monitors did not accept HDMI cables.
   The adapters were $3 each from eBay.

For the Mac I had to download a driver.

If this link quits working... contact me at and I will try to help.

I bought this Dell unit used for $80.
I have no connection with Dell.
