    Greetings MacRumors, been nearly 10 years since I've posted here...My signature was pretty out of date...

    My 2014 15" MBP bit the dust last week (dead keyboard and trackpad). I replaced it with a 2018 15" MBP. I am looking into some Thunderbolt 3 docks to expand the IO when I am using it on my desk, and a portable solution to put in my bag on the go.

    Any brands to avoid?

    thanks for your help.

    CalDigit TS3+ or the new Elgato Pro Thunderbolt 3 dock. The CalDigit is easily the favorite on the site, people love them. These are also among the few that will do 85W charging (compared to 60-65W in others).

    I have the first generation Elgato (also recommended) and it’s flawless. I absolutely love it. The new Pro version looks like a solid upgrade.
