Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Docking Station £39.97 at PC World

LocalFound 30th Dec 2015
Snagged a cheap Surface Pro 3 Recently?
Well if you now have a Surface Pro 3 and want to use it as a full Desktop then you need a Docking Station.
EDIT - NOW £39.97
These are over £160 rrp and you can pick one up from Currys or Pc World for less than £50
It's £49.97 which makes it cheap enough to have even if you don't use it much.
The Surface Pro 3 is a power house of a Pc and the Docking Station makes it a little more versatile.
In stores only, I picked one up today but it scanned through till as lower price.
You can use the Dock on the Surface Pro 4 - requires adapter available through Microsoft

Instore deal only.

Sku - 115768

Why is this being voted cold? This is nearly £100 elsewhere.

More USB ports, another DisplayPort and Ethernet - Solid dock, our office is fitted out with em.
Ooh and it makes a satisfying noise when snapping your Surface in and out!

Probably voted cold from people who haven't bagged a cheap Surface Pro 3 from the currys, pc world ex demos sale.
Fact is, it's over half the price of everywhere else.
I thought this was a deal website.
Turns out it's obviously not.
Do you have the sku number for the docking station please

mmmm - just check receipt.
Sku - 115768
Price is not showing a markdown either - just £49.97
I got mine from Pc World, Kingston Park but I am sure I saw them in Newcastle store on Northumberland street yesterday and sure stock is a little more plentiful so you could try Silverlink as I know its near you.
Saw you bagged a ex demo from Silverlink in the other thread.
Oh, typing this on my new Surface Pro 3 myself. lol

​Maybe stick a half eaten Apple on the back lol.

Hot from me.

Heat from me, a very handy addition
Hot! Great price. Also works with the Surface Pro 4, even though it's slightly thinner (there is an adapter you can get for free from Microsoft, although it fits fine without it: winsupersite.com/sur…ion ).

I would argue this is better than the new Surface Pro dock which has serious Displayport compatibility issues.

that's a good price, might have a look tomorrow at my local
Shame they are not online - currently torn between pro 3 and 4 as my next "laptop" so this would cover both

Stock in the north east at least seems easy to get.
Not many buy it as they don't see the purpose.
All the better for bagging a bargain.
great price and a very helpful device if you own a surface pro 3.
Did you go looking after I mentioned it in the Surface Pro 3 deal?!
Original Poster
Kind of.
Someone mentioned Gumtree, so searched and bagged a Surface Pro 3 I5 128gb with Type cover for £300 - still in shock about that, then remembered you mentioned £49.97 so thought I would pop in as I remembered seeing one in my local.
Decided to post the deal as its a great price and worth sharing.
Cheers for the heads up. :P
I have one of these and they are great, but please be aware they are specific to the Surface 3 and are now eol.

There is a new model but that's not a proper docking station - more like a port replicator.
Original Poster
No this is specific to the Surface PRO 3
The Surface 3 one is different and about £90 at the moment in PC world/Currys
You are right about the new Port replicator which looks like a power block.

I love this quote! Sums up a lot of deals on HUKD nicely Not sure I'd agree that £50 is cheap though...

lol
I know just what you mean.
Will I use the dock a lot? no but for £50 it is worth having for when I do need it as I am never going to get it cheaper.
So what cable what you need to connect to monitor display port ? And again a wireless or wired keyboard too . How easy is it too undock . I have a surface pro 4
I'd be tempted by the dock if I didn't already have a 5 year old main computer haha. The surface pro 3 was just an upgrade for me for the tab s 10.5 I had (returned to amazon for price I paid). Probably work out around £200 more for the SP3.
Original Poster
You need a free adapter for use with Surface Pro 4 - Contact Microsoft for that as the Pro 4 is slimmer.
Super easy to undock - just slide sides of dock off the Surface.
Ports included -
Security lock
Power
Mini Display Port - a cable to covert to HDMI costs about a fiver on ebay.
2 x USB 2.0
2 x USB 3.0 on rear 1x USB 3.0 on side
Gigabit Ethernet
Audio headphone jack

So add a USB mouse/keyboard combo and a Tv (display port adapter) and you are good to go.
Could come in useful to have near TV in living room or a Tv in a spare room to utilise as a desktop.

If you consider it comes with an additional charger it's a decent deal.
It's really an amazing deal, now the question is, how can I check the stock? Please.
Thanks.

Go to local store with the Sku number listed in first post and ask.
If they have it, great. If not they can check local stores.
I have been in four stores over last few days and all had stock on shelf in north east.

Cheers. Fingers crossed. Another deal hunting day tomorrow!

This should be toasty under £50 for a genuine MS dock for the Pro 4!

Good hunting.

I've called 0344 currys headquarter line and was suggested there is one in stock in Crystal Peak near Sheffield area.
And I GOT IT.
for 39.97! What a steal!
Many thanks!

I will update to £39.97
Feel a little ripped off now. Lol
As for which stores - use those things below your waist and go to a store and ask!
Or ring customer services with the Sku.
I know you like deals fed to you but seriously!
Called customer service to check but they didn't seem too helpful and quickly said they're out of stock. I'll go check a shop..
No stock left anywhere in North East. Guy also said system is showing remaining ones in UK at £79.99.

Thanks Bassher--wouldn't have got this deal without your post--good job!

Now to do something like this with it

Not available in either of the leeds stores. Still around £90 ... thanks anyway
Original Poster
The £90 ones are the Surface 3 docks not the Pro ones.
You asked a staff member without the sku and they searched for surface dock.
I am sure some stock in North East on the right sku, but I could be wrong.
