Hi,

 

What portreplicator/docking station with support of atleast 2 monitors works with the new Yoga 3 Pro?

Hi clashelaeander, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

A general-purpose dock like the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock will do that. I'm not aware of a replicator/dock made specifically for the Yoga 3 Pro. 

 

Hope this helps!

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

I'm using the  USB 3.0 Dock, part number 0A33970 (US) / 0A33972 (UK) with the YP3, works a treat.

Supports two HDMI monitors. I use DVI to HDMI cables (£1.84 on Amazon) for connection.

I also have a mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter and had the YP3 running 3 monitors when I connected the 3rd directly to the YP3.

 

The Ethernet on the 0A33972 is also great as I now get 1Gbps to my LAN.

No, I have a ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock, the USB part works but not the display or ethernet. I called Lenovo and they said it was not compatabile.

I am using the plugable UD 3900. Had to download the driver from their website -- the automatically installed one that Windows found and installled worked for the mouse, keyboard and speakers, but not the monitor. Downloaded the new driver and rebooted the computer and it works like a charm.

Will any of these solutions also power the device?   Trying to avoid connecting a separate cord and buying a 2nd charger to run behind my office desk.

unlikely.  THe Yoga 3 has a pre-USB type C special port that works like USB 3 for devices but has an special pin and special cable for charging  (as best I can figure out).  And of course the cable is unavailable almost everywhere.
