CalDigit TS3 Plus Reviews

Hard to find .. for a reason

Using this with 2020 m1 MacBook Pro. Gives me More ports than I need. I like that it gives me a couple usb-c back, because i am giving up one already. This is charging my MacBook with no issues. I'm using with an MSI ultra wide 34" monitor. Runs very cool. This thing is much smaller than it looks in the pictures, which I like. It's all metal too, where it looks plastic in the pictures.

Great product service

This was my second CalDigit TS3 and it works great. Service was great too - timely communication and fast shipping. Would happily use B&H again and recommend to friends and family.

I read many reviews and watched hours of YouTube videos trying to decided on a dock for my new Mac mini that would have thunderbolt, SD card reader and plenty of places to plug in my external SSD drives for my Lightroom workflow and a bunch of other peripherals. I finally decided to spend the extra money on the Caldigit TS3 Plus 15 port dock. The size is perfect and so far everything is running smoothly so enough said I don't want to jinx it.

The best USB-C hub on the planet

I've tried em all, and this sucker is the best. I really like that it has its own power brick...and that you don't have to eat up a precious USB-C port for that. However, for the high price of $300, this thing ought to have an HDMI port and perhaps an ethernet port that's faster than one gigabit per second.

Nice, but lacks 2 video ports

Excellent design, compact on the desk too. My quibble is that there is only one Display Port, and no HDMI port. Two 4K monitor ports are a must for a dock like this so you can have two 27 monitors connected.

Does what it's supposed to

I bought this recently, and it's working great. I am a work-from-home software developer and have been on a mission to improve my work setup. My main work machine is a 2018, 15-inch MacBook Pro. I recently added a third monitor, which along with the charging cable, occupied all the ports on the Mac. My wife also works from home now, so we upgraded our home network to include ethernet, a higher bandwidth Internet connection, which I could not take full advantage of with all my ports in use. Enter the dock... At present, I am driving two 1920x1200 WUXGA (i.e. not 4k) displays. One is on the DisplayPort and the other on Thunderbolt. This freed up two ports on the Mac, and a little desk space. Plus I can be on ethernet. As best as I can tell, the charging speed is exactly the same since my model Mac requires an 87-watt charger. I have also used the front USB-A to hook up external HDs all without issue. I have not yet used the front audio, SD, or USB-C port, nor have I used the remaining ports on the back. I'll update if I have issues. Despite the generally good reviews, I hesitated a little at first to buy this dock because I find it a little ugly in the pictures. Now that it's on my desk I do not find it all that bad. :-)

The best Thunderbolt 3 hub there is

This thing has a ton of ports, comes with its own power brick, and delivers crazy high wattage to my MacBook Pro for fast charging. The only negative aspects are its high price, the lack of an HDMI port, and the fact that the TS4 just came out, which I'll have to buy when I upgrade to the latest miniLED MacBook Pro in a year or two.

So far so great

Can you use this dock with a longer Thunderbolt 3, like this: BH #CA500648 cable or only the one provided?
Asked by: Samuel
Anything that's rated "Thunderbolt 3" will meet certain minimum Thunderbolt 3 standards. Worth keeping this in mind: "Are all Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cables created equal? No, in fact, there are two types of Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cables, passive and active. Passive cables cost less and can reach up to 40 Gb/s data transfer if the length is 0.5m or less and 20 Gb/s if over 0.5m. Active cables can reach up to 40 Gb/s data transfer with a length of up to 2m." https://www.lacie.com/support/kb/frequently-asked-questions-about-thunderbolt-3-007771en/
