USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C Desktop Dock is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE If you are wanting to support a 4K monitor at 60Hz; BEWARE. I purchased this for my 2016 MacBook Pro based on the claims on the CalDigit website -- indicating that it could support a 4K monitor at 60Hz. When I received it, I learned that I would have to email their support department in order to get the firmware update to enable 60Hz. No response after 24 hours, so I called. The gentleman informed me he would email it immediately -- when it didn't arrive after an hour, I had to call in a second time to get the email (why the heck can't this be a downloadable link on their website?). Once I read the email. I learned that one must install the update from a WINDOWS machine, even if you want to use the dock on a Mac. Really? So, I then tried to install it using my work Windows laptop, but it failed...it would not install the firmware. I am so frustrated and angry that I have spent $$ and so much time on this dock and it still will not do what it is advertised to do. Unbelievable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good USB-C dock with a few minor complaints I have been using the CalDigit USB-C Dock for about two weeks with great success. I selected this dock over several other candidates because it has a DisplayPort output - most USB-C docks only have an HDMI output. This dock has been used with a 2016 Apple 12 Retina MacBook, a 27 2560x1440 display connected via DisplayPort, and wired gigabit Ethernet. Pros: -DisplayPort *and* HDMI monitor outputs -USB 3 port on the front for connecting flash drives or other temporary use accessories -Gigabit Ethernet -USB Type-C port on the back for future USB-C accessories -Separate headphone/microphone jacks on the front. -Supports USB-C Power Delivery, so it will charge your MacBook (might charge the new MacBook Pros slowly however). -CalDigit offers a free Mac utility for ejecting all USB-connected drives at once, making it easier to disconnect your MacBook at the end of the day. Cons: -Only three USB-A jacks (one on front, two on back); more (four or five) would be nice. That said, I have an older USB 2.0 hub connected to one of them, and the connection has been rock-solid and stable. -Uses a Cypress Semiconductor USB 3.0-gigabit Ethernet chipset, which requires installation of an additional driver - other USB-Ethernet adaptor chips from Realtek work with device class drivers and do not require additional software. -Built-in Ethernet doesn't always make a connection when the dock is plugged in - just acts like the Ethernet cable is disconnected, even though it's connected. This can be cured by disconnecting and reconnecting the dock. Uncertain if it's a dock issue or a macOS issue, as I have had this problem with other USB-Ethernet adapters on other Mac laptops. Ethernet connection is stable and fast once in place. Other notes: -macOS doesn't support DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport, so for us Mac users, we effectively can only use one external display (yes, I know, the same signals get sent to both the HDMI and DisplayPort outputs). Windows does support MST.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid USB-C dock for Macbook Pro (with Touchbar) I was searching for a USB-C dock for a new Macbook Pro (you know, the one with the new USB-C ports). While many devices are really just little hubs that allow you to plug in a monitor and maybe a couple USB devices, this was the only one I could find that would pass through the right amount of power to properly power/charge the Macbook Pro (most hubs only pass through 60w, which is great if you have a little Macbook). As an added bonus, this one was also verified to work with a Superdrive. Design-wise, I like this one because it sends the mess of cables out the back, where they can be easily tucked out of sight. There are a couple ports on the front for easy access, like plugging in a USB flash drive. What would make this better? A couple more USB ports.
