Expand the connectivity of your laptop with the Kensington SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station.

With dual Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports, the SD5000T can support up to 40 Gb/s of data, which is 8 times the speed of USB 3.0. It also supports dual 4K video. You can also connect via the DisplayPort. The SD5000T can also charge your laptop, providing up to 85W of charging power.

There are also dual USB 3.0 Type-A ports for compatibility with older devices. Many modern laptops now lack a wired Ethernet connection so the SD5000T provides a Gigabit Ethernet jack.

The SD5000T also features Zero Footprint Mounting, which means it can be mounted to the back of a 75mm or 100mm VESA-compatible external monitor (mounting plate sold separately). There is also a Kensington lock slot, as well, for security purposes.


Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
The SD5000T supports 4K on two displays. It also supports 4096 x 2160 30 bpp @ 60 Hz via the DisplayPort.
The 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks provide quick access to audio devices.
The 85W Power Delivery can charge the host device (Host device must be designed to support Power Delivery for dock to provide charging).
There are dual USB 3.0 ports, one of which is a 2.1A charging port to power a tablet or smartphone.
The Zero Footprint Mounting provides the option to attach the dock to the back of any VESA-compatible monitor.
Daisy chaining allows for up to 5 additional Thunderbolt-enabled devices to be connected from a single port.
The Gigabit Ethernet port provides a reliable 1 Gb/s wired Internet connection.

    SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! This unit is being paired with a 15 2016 (2.7/1TB/455) MBP using the supplied TB3 cable. Pros: It powers the 15 MBP @ 85w. It is connected to a Dell P2415q 4k screen via the dock's display port. Gigabit ethernet working perfectly and with manually assigned VLANs too. USB upstreamed to the 3.0 hub in the back of the Dell Screen and multiple devices connected. 2nd TB3 port linked via an Apple TB2 adaptor to an external TB hdd. Front USB-C port connected to my iOS devices via an Apple USB-C to lightning cable. Cons: None Summary: It works perfectly, there have been no weird quirks, disconnects, or anything wacky.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good dock, need to change one setting on Mac Book Pro I've been using this dock for over a month now with 15 2017 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. I connect to external 28 4K monitor, and initially I was sometimes having problems with unresponsive external monitor after my MacBook went into sleep mode. The monitor wouldn't wake up after the Mac woke up. I was having to unplug the monitor each time to get it working again with the dock. Sometimes, my MacBook wouldn't wake up either, or was painfully slow to wake up. I finally found a solution with a simple configuration change on my MacBook (with High Sierra OS). Just go to System Preferences and then select Energy Saver. In the Energy Saver window, make sure the Power Adapter tab is selected. Then check the box Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off. You'll get a brief warning that this setting will use a bit more electricity. That's it. After making this easy change, everything is working well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with new 2017 MacBook Pro 15 I just hooked this up to new 2017 MacBook Pro 15, and all the ports I've tried are working fine. I plugged in a MonoPrice 28 4k monitor, and it eventually recognized it (when you first plug something in, it may take several seconds to recognized it.). I also tried fast data port (usb-c thunderbolt 3.1), usb 3, and the ethernet port--they all worked fine. It also keeps MacBook fully charged delivering 85W. After you've plugged in the power supply, all you have to do to connect dock to your MacBook is to simply plug in the included usb-c cable to your MacBook. Happy so far--looks like a great docking solution.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plagued by technical issues The docking station connects to my new Dell U2415 display. Flickers when connected some of the time - other times, the docking station won't even recognise the monitor without unplugging and plugging it in. Monitor works fine with other computers, so it must be the docking station!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product Solid product, does what it says, got it on sale so great price too. RRP is a little expensive. Im running a 2017 MacBook Pro 15 with this, got a 32inch 4K display, hard drives, audio interface, multiple midi controllers (needed an addition USB hub connected to the hub for all my extra devices but any cheap one will suffice.) So nice to walk into my studio, connect one cable and be connected to my whole workstation including full power. Its perfect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as designed. That's the problem... I wonder how many customers had subconsciously realized this docking station has less USB 3.0 legacy ports that most USB-C hubs costing approx. 1/10th of the cost....I didn't and the joke is on me. Here is what my docking station looks like (photo below). You get no HDMI port (why?), nor any SDHC or microSD ports (did Kensington somehow ran out of room?), while the tiny hubs manage to include these. Again, we are talking about docking station here, after all. If I have to buy a bunch of external hubs, what's the point??? And it's not like you get plenty of USB-C (3.1) ports to play with either...exactly two, not counting the one reserved the MBP (these are now occupied by the USB-C hubs. On the upside, as others have noted, you have plug'n'play installation with the build quality expected from Kensington. You also get an enormously ugly brick that can nevertheless drive your 15.4 MBP with ease. Docking station this thing is not. With goodwill, perhaps you can call it a powered port-extender.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fantastic dock for a 15 MacBook Pro with Touchbar After exploring a handful of competing USB-C docks, all promising only 60W of charging power, I've been daily driving this model (with 85W), and it does exactly what it claims, and feels like a quality product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for the MacBook Pro 15 If you are looking for a TB dock for MBPro15 which requires 87w power supply. This is your bet. It charges the Mac and can hook it up to two monitors and a time machine among other devices. The only glitch I have noticed is the drop off in the TPE connection which disrupted upon disconnection and I had to physically take out the cable and put it back in for it to get back on to the network. It's a great buy and I would recommend it.
