YOGA 920/C930/C740 Docking Station/Hub

2019-10-30, 17:33 PM

 Greeting All:

 

My organization utilizes varying YOGA convertibles as our company standard. We currently have Yoga 920s & C930s in circulation, with a shipment of C740s coming soon. 

 

We've had an absolute heck of a time trying to find a robust usb-c docking station/port hub. For our light users, it seems any of the dongles on Amazon that support a single HDMI, USB-A, and power passthrough (~$25-$35) work fine. However we've gone through several port heavy setups that keep failing. Sometimes it's an inability to detect several monitors, other times it's the power cutting out. Generally, we're looking for:

  • 2 USB-A 
  • USB-C Power Passthrough
  • 2 display outputs. HDMI/DP/Mini-DP are all fine, VGA not preferable. 4k support not necessary. 

And that's really about it. We don't have much use for ethernet ports, sd readers, or other such. We've been trying docks in the ~$90-$150 pricepoint to not much success. Are we just asking for too much output from a single Usb-C?

 

Has anyone had success in a hub for Lenovo Yoga docking stations that fit our parameters? I know there is a first party box Lenovo offers, however at $270 it is a bit steep.

 

Thanks!

I went through 3 hubs before I found one that would actualy support the basic requirements I needed (2 external HDMI monitors in triple display, ethernet and PD power passthrough).  This is the hub I'm currently using:

It's actually working for all of the above - so far.  I haven't tried the displayport or SD card ports yet, but everything else is working great.

Hi WamDev! Welcome to our forums community. You can check the list of Lenovo docking stations here: https://accessorysmartfind.lenovo.com. You can find the list of compatible devices on each of the docking stations. You may also check it from other forums members who tried not recommended docking stations but it worked for them.

We are having exact same problem.  We have 730s and 930s and looking at 740s now.  We found a solution for the 930 we like, but none of the docks we purchased for the 730s charge or power on with the power button like we'd like. 

 

Did you try the hub recommended by Treaty?  I checked it out at Amazon and looks like everything but the ability to power on the laptop without opening it is the only issue that remains unresolved with that one.  Thanks!

Re:YOGA 920/C930/C740 Docking Station/Hub

Having problems with blinking screens and unprompted pop ups and clicks when I am connected to a Totu hub for dual monitor use.  I do not see a recommended hub for dual monitor connection listed under the accessories on the Smart Find Lenovo site.  I am past the return window for where I purchased the laptop, but I have no interest in using it only as a single screen laptop.  I need to be able to connect to two monitors for my home office.  I already uninstalled and reinstalled display settings, and did what the GeekSquad told me to do to erase and reset the laptop and install updates.  It did not solve the problem.  Help!!
