Flex 5 dock/port replicator

Can anyone suggest a dock/port replicator for a Flex 5.

I'm looking for:

Video

Ethernet

2-3 USB ports

 

Thanks!

Re: Flex 5 dock/port replicator

So far I can only tell you what *won't* work:

The Juiced BizHub - https://www.amazon.com/Juiced-BizHUB-Multiport-Ethernet-Delivery/dp/B01JD9GN6I

I plugged it into USB-C and it complains about MHL support and the video out does not work. The hub works on other laptops fine.

Still looking at other options, but I just got confirmation from Lenovo tech chat that the USB-C port on the Flex 5 will not work with any video output dock, so you're going to have to try something over USB 3.0, like a Pluggable brand or similar.

Re: Flex 5 dock/port replicator

Just to expand on the list of usb docks that won't work on this laptop - the Dell-3100 USB 3 dock wouldn't detect an external monitor. The USB on it worked, and the dock works fine on a Dell laptop, but not this Flex-5.

 

The search continues, but I'm running out of time, as the return window rapidly closes.
