The news is out and reviews are in for the latest addition to the Henge Docks lineup - the Vertical Docking Station for MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a hit! We’re very excited that these news docks have had such a successful release, and are receiving such great press! Editors Choice, 10 out of 10, thumbs up, simply awesome... These are just a few of the many accolades bestowed upon the Vertical Retina Dock so far.
Apple Insider was the first to review the new dock, giving it a 4.5 out of 5 stars! It's "one of the best laptop docking solutions" they've ever seen. "Henge Docks is flexing its design muscle with the Retina MacBook Pro Vertical Docking Station. The new metal body is more sturdy than previous models, while the seemingly minor additions of a screw cover and cable organizer simply add to perceived build quality." Our product designers definitely enjoyed that compliment!
Editor’s Choice came from Geek Beat TV. Ben Roethig said, "If you use an Apple Thunderbolt display or other large screen display (or TV) with your MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the Henge Docks Metal Edition Vertical Dock is something you definitely want to get. You’ll save a bunch of desktop space, cool your MacBook, and the cable management makes your desk a lot cleaner. This is a great product that looks fantastic and is virtually indestructible." Ben also said, "Cons: Apple has not bought Henge Docks and included one with every MacBook sold. This is as close to a perfect companion as you can get,” which is certainly our favorite line of all the reviews!
Apple Daily Report continued the high praise, rating the dock a perfect 10 out of 10! "The advantage of this sort of set-up is that you can have all the advantages of a desktop arrangement (bigger screen, better speakers, etc.), but can disconnect your MacBook Pro and take it with it whether you’re hitting the road or simply want to work from your living room or bed,” said reviewer Dennis Sellers.
Daniel Cohen’s review title in Gear Diary summed it up perfectly: “MacBook Pro + iMac + Henge Docks Vertical Docking Station = Awesome.” He elaborated, "The Henge Docks Vertical Docking Station is as refined a dock as you are going to find. It saves space, keeps your laptop safe, controls cables so you desk isn’t a mess and simply delivers on its promise of a superb dock that looks great and functions even better. This is a computer accessory I can recommend without hesitation! If your MacBook Pro doubles as your desktop stop reading this review and go buy it. Seriously, it is that impressive.” We thank Daniel for his glowing recommendation!
The dock received a thumbs up from Julie Strietelmeier at The Gadgeteer. Julie says, "This is a very well made docking station that helps you unclutter your desk and organize cables. The dock provides an easy way to connect all your peripherals to your laptop while maintaining portability." She also put up some excellent photos of the dock, including a before and after of her desk with the new dock. It looks great!
The most recent review came from David Temple at Appletell - with a 4 out of 5 rating! He states, "The Henge Docks vertical laptop dock is a stylish piece of engineering, and it does its job very well." Once again, a great compliment for our product designers, of whom we are very proud for their dedication to ensuring this dock is of the highest standards.
The Henge Docks team is very proud of the enthusiasm for and success surrounding the Vertical Docking Station for MacBook Pro with Retina Display. These great reviews and high demand for an Apple docking station led us to record sales and a sold out situation that is just ending now.
All of these reviews, and all of our interactions with our customers further motivate us in our drive to design and produce the best docking stations and accessories on the market. We thank you all very much for your interest and support for our company and our products!
