1 Display Output is not great especially at this price. You can get the Dell or Lenovo Thunderbolt docks for about the same price and they have 2 or 3 video outputs.

The good docks are expensive... a lot of the cheap ones on amazon don't give anywhere near the amount of throughput as they should in terms of file transfer rates and such. Check out this video to get an idea

Best deal I've seen on a quality Thunderbolt 3 dock so far. Wirecutter [thewirecutter.com] only knocked the Kensington due to the higher price than the competition. The VESA mounting ability is only a bonus.

Apparently Intel is loosening the licensing on Thunderbolt 3 in 2018. I assume that could lead to more affordable docks?

My concern is that almost non of these will handle 4K/60hz output for video. Until they do I'll have to pass. This seems like a decent price for one that will charge the 15" 2016/2017 Macbook though.. outputting 85w is quite a beast!

It does 60Hz. You can't find one that does AND delivers over 60w for less than this.

Read the reviews on Amazon.. it is capable but not reliable with the DP port. You must buy a DP to USB-C cable.. and use one of your USB-C ports to get the monitor to work consistently at 4K/60. I agree you wont find the capability cheaper than $250.

I'll wait until these start shipping with a true HDMI 2.0 port. I dont want to use my precious TB3 ports to connect a monitor. Its a waste of the port IMO.

True, but that's one review and I would assume it depends on the particular monitor as well. Some of these docks are incompatible with some 4K monitors. Might have to take advantage of the 30 day return policy.
