This is normally $199, and the seller is CalDigit.

The is one of the few (only?) docks that uses Intel's Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 controller. That means, it has full functionality as both a USB-C dock and a Thunderbolt 3 dock. Helpful if you want to use it with a variety of computers/laptops/tablets that have one or the other connector.

Note that 85W of power delivery will not allow a Macbook 16" to power on at 0% battery. Firefox prevented my Macbook from sleeping the last week, and I had to wait a ridiculous amount of time for this dock to allow my computer to turn on. Same situation happened again, but I had my 96W Apple charger, and that was able to power the laptop at 0% power.

I've since purchased the HP Thunderbolt docks, which do provide roughly the same power delivery as the stock 96W Macbook charger. They're also much cheaper than this dock on ebay or Amazon, while offering similar ports, minus the SD card reader.

You would think that there would be better options for docks for the MBP 16".

Very tempting. It is disappointing to see how few true Thunderport docs/hubs exist. At the other extreme are USB-C options for around $20 but they compromise 4k @30HZ or USB speed 5GB/s.

I'm throwing this out there but this option from Anker is very tempting to me since it appears to be the cheapest name brand USB-C option with both USB 10 GB/s and 4K @ 60HZ for $59.

Thoughts on this item? Alternatives? Must include SD card slot and ethernet is a bonus.

Try the Caldigit TS3 Plus. Has everything you need and it's the highest rated thunderbolt dock out there. Wait for the Fourth of July sale on their website as they do a 15 percent discount and they don't charge tax outside of California.

Is it really worth it to spend 250 dollars on that instead of just using one of those 40 dollar anker hubs?

Yes, I'm using the G2 dock. I have not had any problems with it. The only issue I can see someone running into is you can't have two separate monitors on the display ports. It just mirrors both display port outputs since MacOS doesn't support MST for dual display outs on hubs, you can only have one, separate external display with display port. You can get around this issue by using the USB-C (thunderbolt) port on the dock with a USB-C to display port cable adapter for a second external monitor.

Did you update the firmware in yours? I have the latest firmware in mine.

This is the dock, although I recommend searching ebay, since a lot of companies bought these docks for workstations, then never used them or had employee downsizing.

I purchased mine on ebay for about $60.

I got mine for 45 maybe it was a lemon. Worked initially where the drivers were updated then stopped working the next day. Still charges. But none of the ports work. Trying to use it on a dell latitude or precision and a mbp 2016 tb

I like the looks of that one. I have a 16" mpb on the way and need a hub for at my desk and then another dongle for mobile use.

But for the desktop I'd like the pass through charging, be able to hookup to my 38" ultra wide and some other ports. Ethernet is a bonus. Having SD is nice. So this might solve all of that. This would be fine for mobile too but would prefer to leave this with everything connected when not there. Connect one cord and go. Also who am I kidding. I work out of my basement now and I don't go anywhere.

Maybe the cable failed? I've heard thunderbolt 3 cables are quite picky. I believe you can replace the cable by opening the dock up.
