First day review of WD 19 dock with XPS 13 9380. I have had nothing but dock issues following the latest 9380 BIOS update. Problems include intermittent connection to monitor, failure to work properly with a simple USB switching hub, and computer shutting down repeatedly requiring force restart. I followed all instructions when connecting this new dock and had the same issues. Then I came across this article:

I followed the instructions to update the BIOS settings, and the dock now works properly. Be advised that NOT all of the options mentioned are available in the 9380 BIOS including ??enable USB power share?? and ??allow USB-C dock support??. For now, the dock is working. I did need to plug the USB switching hub into the front USB port on the dock. I hope this helps and good luck. DELL could be a bit more clear about these issues.

I swear thunderbolt 3 is a scam. 2 displays at 4k 60hz my ass. Even HDMI doesn’t work.
I used this dock with a Dell 7480 laptop with 6th gen i7, intel hd 520, 16 GB ram and thunderbolt 3 port (Not usb c only) and this laptop was on the list of recommended laptops from dell for this specific dock. I wanted to connect both my 4k 60hz screens via display port to this dock and plug this dock into the TB3 port on my dell 7480 laptop.

All the other ports work but to get video to output is like pulling teeth. So many issues getting multiple displays to work. When plugged in displays show up in the configuration menu but you can’t enable or set resolution for them. Unplug one screen, and then video outputs at 1080p 30hz, plug in the other display and both go out. I plugged my TB3 macbook pro in just make sure it’s not the dell laptop but the mac was having the same issue the dell laptop was facing.

I asked one of the IT guys who works with a lot of dell laptops at the company I work at and he says that they never found a TB3 dock that can output to multiple displays reliably. TB3 is just not ready.

DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOUR INTENT IS TO OUTPUT TO MULTIPLE DISPLAYS OVER TB3

Best way to output video from laptop to multiple displays is each displays connect to a display output port on laptop. 1 display per port. TB3 is a scam.

It only gets 2 stars because it looks nice and everything else works.

Customer Questions & Answers

Would that docking station work with a non dell laptop? (for example an hp pavilion). ..thanks
Answer: Dell recommends that this only be used with their laptops.

I am assuming the standard dell power adapter plugs into the docking station and then powers the laptop through the usb c cable? correct?
Answer: Since this docking station supports more peripherals, you would use the 130w or 180w variant. This would then plug into the laptop using the USB-C cable

What is the warranty on these?
Answer: Guaranteed to work (30 Days)

Is this compatible with a Dell Inspiron 3583?
Answer: It should work with any usb c port. If Inspiron 3583 has it, the dock will work
