  • Hey, Ive got a iMac (24-inch, Early 2009) running version 10.11.6 Im trying to use it as a second monitor for my macbook pro (15 inch 2016 with touch bar). I have a mini display port cable to mini display port cable from iMac to my OWC 3 dock and can’t seem to get it working.. any ideas?

    • I would love to see what the solution was to this issue. Currently working in an office of 5 and EVERYONE is having the same issue. Great reviews for this product then boatloads of issues.

  • When using your Thunderbolt 3 Dock DP++ with a display port cable to my Samsung 28″ 4K monitor, only right half of screen displays after sleep. Left half is BLACK. HDMI works correctly from the DP++ with macOS Sierra BUT when upgrading to macOS High Sierra, 75% of the time waking from sleep goes to a BLUE screen.
