CalDigit TS3 Plus+ overview

  • 1Description

Connect a variety of Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Type-C, USB 3.0 Type-C, USB 3.0 Type-A, DisplayPort 1.2, Gigabit Ethernet, S/PDIF audio, 3.5mm audio, and SDXC UHS-II peripherals to your compatible system using the TS3 Plus 15-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock from CalDigit. This dock contains two bi-directional 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, each of which utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector and also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2, allowing you to connect up to two 4K/60 Hz displays simultaneously, or one 5K Thunderbolt 3 display. Additionally, you can daisy-chain up to six total devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port. As one Thunderbolt 3 port is used to interface with your host system, the other is used for daisy chaining.

In addition to its Thunderbolt 3 ports, this dock also has one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C port, which is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2, as well as one 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-C port, which is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1. To maintain compatibility with legacy devices, this dock also has five 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports. The DisplayPort allows for a 4K or 5K monitor to be connected, while the 3.5mm audio ports allow external speakers, mics, and other audio equipment to be connected. Pro-grade digital audio output for a lossless signal transfer is accomplished using the S/PDIF output, network connectivity is achieved using the Gigabit Ethernet port, and the integrated SDXC UHS-II card reader lets you download photos and videos from your digital camera or other device. Additionally, a power cable and a 1.6' Thunderbolt 3 cable are included.

    CalDigit TS3 Plus+ reviews

    TS3 Plus 15-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This is my first Thunderbolt 3 dock. I was deciding between this product and a couple alternative products. I chose this one as it wasn't released at the time and it provides a lot of connections! My settings is� - MacBook Pro 13" 2016 (No Touch) - Dell P2715Q (Yes!! it works) - Apple wired keyboard - Logitech mouse - WD Passport 4TB It was very easy to set up the dock. I connect the dock and monitor with DP to mDP cable that comes with the monitor. It works very well. I can either use Dell as an extension or use Dell as a primary monitor. Once plugging the Thunderbolt 3 to the sleep MBP, the monitor will not be awaken. But either pressing keyboard, clicking mouse or opening the MBP lid, the monitor would be ready.� SD Card, external drive and audio out work fine as expected. Since I have wired keyboard and wired mouse, I was trying to connect both of them to the two top ports. This would result that the Dell monitor work incorrectly. I then changed one of them to the middle port and it works fine. I glad that I purchased this item, but if I could change anything, I would prefer buying the 1m Thunderbolt cable option instead of 0.5m option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Thunderbolt 3 Dock/Adapter to buy seriously!! Fantastic!! I purchased this Dock after researching hundreds of cheap USB C and Thunderbolt 3 docks. And I'll be honest, the rest really suck compared to this dock, In my opinion it is the only Dock any professional or everyday user should use. I've looked at the Satechi USB C Adapters and similar Chinese knockoffs only to read reviews of hard drives corrupting or the Display constantly dropping out, even Apple's own HDMI adapter has heaps of problems. I'm not paid to say this, I'm a filmmaker in Australia that just wanted to make my MacBook Pro 13" useful in a professional environment and BOY DOES IT DO THAT! As soon as I opened the box I plugged it straight into power and then plugged the thunderbolt cable straight into the MacBook Pro and it worked right there and then. It then charged my MacBook from 70% to 100% in 20 mins and I plugged in an Ultrawide 34" 4K display via the display port and it worked flawlessly, I also plugged in an SSD, USB Keyboard as well as my own SD Card Reader in addition to the built in UHS II reader! I was able to use my MacBook Pro finally as a real computer and transferred all of the days rushes without any hitches at maximum speed. I'm am very very happy with this purchase and I only wish Apple would just package these with each new MacBook Pro purchased as I can turn into a fully fledged Desktop computer and charge it! with 1 single Thunderbolt 3 cable! I couldn't recommend highly enough!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost great Has the potential to be perfect but unfortunately I can only review it based on its current performance. Had to deduct 2 stars for the following reasons: 1) The 10Gbps USB-C port appears to recognise 10Gbps-capable devices as only 5Gbps, effectively limiting the port speed by up to 50%. The same devices run at full speed when connected directly to my Mac, but not when connected to the dock. 2) Multi-channel audio output does not appear to be possible via the optical port regardless of output format or software used. The Caldigit website specifically mentions surround sound support via S/PDIF. I have contacted Caldigit and their support has been fast and helpful but am currently awaiting further info, hopefully both issues are resolved soon. Would give it 5 stars if these issues are corrected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This TB Hub Had a previous device from another supplier.� This is so much better.� My likes (1) Have my external drive enclosure daisy chained.� Starts up from suspend (opening lid to start Mac Laptop) without any problems; (2) Provides plenty of charging power for my MacBook Pro 2017; (3) Unit is compact in size; and (4) Like the way the SD card slot is spring loaded to eject.� Don't have anything bad to say.� Unit is working great so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo of features & price I've bought a few other Thunderbolt 3 docks through my office, and when I saw this unit announced i ordered one immediately. The price is the best (at the moment) for the number of usable ports. The one gotcha' I had was knowing I had to use an ACTIVE DisplayPort cable/adaptor. It's right there in the manual, so RTFM applies here. Once I had the right cable it was perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what the doctor ordered. :) It's a great device! I've clamshelled my MacBook Pro and have a nice 4K monitor.� When I hit the road in the morning, I just unplug and go! ONE PLUG!� Also, I've now added my "original" Apple power supply to my "go bag."� Feels well made and is very stable and, best of all, it becomes one of those "invisible" fixtures on my desk! Kudos to CalDigit!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and a good compliment for the MBP I used this to replace my makeshift TB3-PCI-E USB dock with a smaller device like this. The only issue I noticed was Logitech wireless dongles have input lag issues, but I switched my mouse over to wired and all ports work just fine.
