A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

The OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is perfect for giving you just about every piece of connectivity you are likely to need. There are USB 3.1 and 3.2 (USB Type C) ports, there’s an SD card slot, a microSD card slot, audio port, digital audio port, Gigabit Ethernet port, Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The dock is compatible with both Mac (macOS 10.12 or later) and Windows 10 so whatever you are using this dock is easily the one for you!

Four of the USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports are also capable of providing 1.5A of power so that you can charge devices.

Some devices need an additional driver in order to function correction (such as the Apple SuperDrive) but OWC have provided the driver online so if you have one of those devices then you just need to download and install the driver. There is also a compatibility list online too just so you can check.

Setting up the dock is simple – place it on a desk (or wherever you want to use it), plug in the power supply, connect the dock to your laptop using the supplied cable, and that’s it! Now you can use any of the ports on the dock.

For me personally, I have an Apple MacBook Pro which means I am limited in what ports my laptop has available – there is no Ethernet port or SD card slot for example, something I personally use a lot, so the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a lifesaver! Not only can I now use all those things I need without looking for extra connectors and unplugging whatever I already have connected, I can use other devices at the same time and even charge my phone and iPad too! And it looks good on the desk too!

The dock also comes with a 2 year warranty so if anything goes wrong you are covered.

The OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is available now priced $279 and is available in either Silver or Space Grey and is a must have addition to your desktop – get one today!
