Docking Station Compatibility W550s, T450 and T520

I use a Thinkpad W550s for work.  I am looking at purchasing a T450 (or T570) and T520 for home.  I enjoy the docking capability from the W550s at work and I trying to determine if there is a single dock available for all of these models.

Hi Highgrader,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

Well looks like ThinkPad USB 3.0 Pro Dock & ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock are the only USB Docks / Cable Docks compatible with all the three W550s, T450 and T520 models. 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Thank you for your reply.  The dock I use at work is not the USB version.  Do you know if the Lenovo Thinkpad Basic or pro Dock - 90W function for the laptops?  When working at home with the W550s, I would require more then one monitor and I don't think the USB allows for this.

Lenovo Thinkpad Basic or Pro Dock will work with both ThinkPad W550s and T450 but not with T520 as it uses ThinkPad Port Replicator Series 3 docks. Also ThinkPad USB Docks does supports more than one display.

Re: Docking Station Compatibility W550s, T450 and T520

I have a quick question, would really appreciate the help.

I am about to receive the T450 as my work laptop. I already have a Plugable USB 3.0 docking station at home. Will it be possible to use this particular docking station with the laptop through the USB 3.0 port?

I do have the proper stationat work. Trying to prevent from having to drag that home for use.

Here is the docking station available at home currently.

Thank you in advance.
