    So I'm a huge docking and multi-monitor fan - hence my user name and various surface hacking projects I've posted on here over the last year or two. I wanted to understand how folks use docking stations at their desk with the Surface Pro 3 vs Pro 4 and Surface Book and what issues they are having to try to improve the experience. If you want to help me improve docking, please fill out this quick survey:

    Forgive me if the questions seem odd; I'm an engineer with rather quirky methods.

    I have a non-MS dock but I want to replace it with the MS brick dock.

    Bought the new "brick" and love it. Worth the price. The clamp style is more elegant, but the brick offers more in terms of ports and such. Highly recommended.

    Will keep the old MS dock since it still works at this point. I had a new dock for a few weeks while I tried out the SB, and the new dock was nice too. Didn't try running 2 4k monitors from it, though, since a number of people have found out you can't.
