I am a looking at a fairly straightforward configuration: 2 TB3 4K monitors - either 27" or 32" - daisy chained via Thunderbolt connection.

There aren't too many options at the moment.

Any recommendations?

Thanks - I like Dell U3219Q monitor but it's only USB C; not TB3.

BenQ PD 3220OU has a lingering flash to black issue. Very unfortunate as this monitor offers great specifications.

Users of LG 32UL950-W 32" reported a bleed problem. LG service is also subpar.

I hope Dell will offer in the near future UltraFine series monitor with TB3.

Are you willing to consider a setup without TB3 or are you definitely intent on TB3? While I certainly understand if you are, I ask because two USB-C 4K displays and a TB3 hub (so you still have a single cable to the Mac, which I assume is what you prefer) may be less-expensive and open more options...including Dell's 32-inch and 27-inch 4K Ultrasharp displays. I just purchased several U2720Qs and these are stellar displays (from the cable management perspective, it's a shame macOS doesn't support MST :( )

I am actually trying to avoid investing in TB3 dock or USB C dock capable of handling 2 4K monitors @ 60 Hz. Even today, TB3 docks are not yet perfect. I spent hours researching popular products from Caldigit, OWC, Belkin, and others. That's why I am looking for 2 monitors daisy chained via TB3.

Plugable is expected to launch TBT3-UDZ TB3 dock soon. It uses Titan Ridge chipset. I will consider this dock when it becomes available.

I understand that completely. That dock looks absolutely awesome...I might buy one for myself, actually.
