Looking at their website and Amazon store, almost all of their docks are out of stock.

Can you provide more context? Damning statement with no support isn't helpful.

The CalDigit's TS3 Plus is still the best Thunderbolt 3 dock available for the Mac, but the Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock isn't that far off. CalDigit offers better overall build quality thanks to all-aluminum silver and space gray color options, while Elgato offers an outer aluminum space gray shell that sandwiches a dark gray plastic interior.

The CalDigit dock is thicker than the Elgato dock, but also features a smaller desktop footprint. The TS3 Plus can be oriented vertically along with horizontally on a desktop surface, which lends added flexibility to a setup.

CalDigit's Dock offers more ports — 15, versus 12 on the Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock. CalDigit offers a digital optical audio port, along with three additional 5 Gbps USB-A ports. The CalDigit TS3 Plus has a total of 5 USB-A ports, which will be handy for those with lots of legacy peripherals.

One advantage that Elgato enjoys over the CalDigit unit is that it comes with two USB 3.1 Gen 2 USB-C ports capable of 10 Gbps connectivity, while CalDigit offers USB 3.1 Gen 2 on only one of its two dedicated USB-C ports. The Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock also includes a microSD UHS-II reader, which the TS3 Plus outright lacks.

It's worth noting that both docks support up to 5K (5120×2880) at 60 Hz when connecting directly to a Thunderbolt 3 display, such as the LG UltraFine 5K Display. Both docks also support dual 4K60 setups, although you'll need to employ the use of an active HDMI adapter to make that happen.

I know others have had problems with them, but I have two OWC 13-port thunderbolt 3 docks that have been great. I'm a sucker for FireWire and these seemed like the last docks that would offer the port without a thunderbolt dongle.

On one of them I run a 37" LG Thunderbolt 2 monitor and the other is running a dell 1920x1200.

I've been using one of the docks since 2017 and the other is maybe a year newer.

Thanks OP! In for one. Been looking for a decently priced (under $200) thunderbolt 3 dock for months.

You're comparing a product that is twice the price of the Elgato. It's not exactly apples to apples here.

So, my use case is that I want to connect my Macbook air to an external monitor for extended display (DP to HDMI) with USB mouse and keyboard. Do I need a Caldigit or this should suffice?
