Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very useful when moving the laptop between home and work. Built in network switch is useful at times.
Bad points:
Cost!!! It's only justified by the fact that a charger by itself costs about two thirds of the price...

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It allows you to quickly connect your laptop to a power supply, your network, external monitors and peripherals, saving you time and your precious Vaio from port wear and tear. It comes with its own power supply allowing you to keep the charger that came with your laptop in your travel bag ready to go.
Bad points:
The USB ports are 2.0 ports (not USB 3.0). There are not enough USB ports only 4No. These days most periphals are USB. The product could be improved by doubling the number of ports.
The product could be improved by incorporating a chipset to output to multiple monitors - currently I used a Matrox Dual Head2Go to output to another 2No 24" Full HD monitors - why don't they incorporate this technology into the port replicator?

Good points:
The docking station offers 4 more USB ports and a DVI port on top of the VGA which is helpful for the monitor. This is working well and i have had no problems with it.

Good points:
in view of the comments below, I do not have any comments for good points.
Bad points:
I had used my new SONY Vaio 9my 7th) for less than two weeks when the F7 key 'stuck' and then fell off. The Company claimed this was not covered by the warranty; the repair shop (which SONY had given to us) said it required a new keyboard and if they replaced it, the whole warranty would be void. Eventually Sony collected the new computer. We were not able to speak to anyone about the quality of the machine or the service. I have written to the chairman, but have not received a reply. SONY's reputation for unusually poor customer service and defective machines has been underpinned by this experience.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
At least this docking station comes bundled with a power supply, which many previous Sony's didn't. Reasonable but not comprehensive range of ports - power, network, 4 USB, VGA and DVI. It's solidly-built, as you would expect from Sony.
Bad points:
Missing ports - HDMI, speakers/microphone.
It is of course only compatible with the Z-series laptop.
The design is possibly the worst I've ever come across for a docking station. As an IT professional I've had experience of many different makes and models of laptop and docking station to know a good design from a bad one. There is no positive method for correctly aligning the laptop to drop it onto the docking connector, and once on it is not properly held in place - you can twist the laptop on the connector to an appreciable degree, so that some or all services do not work. I am in constant fear of one of my users misaligning, pressing or twisting too hard and breaking the connector or the motherboard itself (I've worked in IT for many years and seen this happen enough times).
For an expensive accessory for Sony's top-of-the-range executive laptop this is just not good enough. This view is held by myself and by the two staff who are using these laptops with this docking station. MUST DO BETTER, SONY!
