    The ACP51USZ got our attention for being an innovative new product, and in use it also proved to be easy to use and do what it says in the tin. Being a mobile device sets some challenges to the design, it needs to be light weight and durable, and the dock also scores well on these areas. The flat black design feels sturdy and looks stylish. Setting the dock up is a breeze, just install the drivers and it integrated very nicely with Windows 7. Managing the extra connections is very easy as it happens using the familiar Windows-settings.

    Really the only serious downside is the rather obvious limitations set by the single USB-connection. The USB2.0 bandwidth just isn't enough for all this connectivity. It is enough for showing somewhat static pictures on the screen or even looking at some low-resolution video, but if you try to use the network, graphic card and USB-hub all at the same time, the limitations will become very obvious. Despite the limitations, this is still a great product for people wanting that extra screen or network connection.
