Reviewer: Macaholic Location: Fort Worth, Texas Age: Over 65 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Works Like a Champ September 6, 2017 I have a 13" MacBook Pro that I use as my desktop machine at home. I place the MBP in a TwelveSouth Bookarc stand and a single Thunderbolt 3/USB C cable connected to OWC's 13 port Thunderbolt 3 dock not only provides power to the MacBook Pro and connects it to a 27" Apple Thunderbolt Display, Fujitsu ix500 scanner, NewerTech Ministack MAX enclosure, OWC Thunderbay RAID 5 array, Dymo postal scale, a sound system, as well as an ever changing array of HDs and SSDs in OWC Express and On The Go enclosures. Disconnect the single connection to the TB3 Dock, drop the MBP into a carrying envelope and I am out the door. I couldn't ask for more convenience or functionality. I heartily recommend OWC's 13 Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock to anyone with a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or MacBook who wants both a desktop and laptop in a single convenient package.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from (*) OWC 13-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock with Cable - Space Gray *Model with FireWire 800 Port*. Customer Videos:

Rating: 5/5 second one works well August 18, 2017 I ordered these when almost first offered. Waited several months and when it dame it would not charge computer. Returned without problems and second one works as it should. I personally can not tell the the USB 3.1 is faster than the previous thunderbolt was.
