I had bought the related DisplayLink docking station. I pluged it into the wall to get power and connected it to my Windows 10 computer. After all the correct drivers applied in the system, it take control of two monitors well. I teseted it on my Surface Pro 4 without big issues. For real drawback, sometimes it is a bit sluggish with mouse movement on the docked monitor.
