    Anyone using the CalDigit or OWC USB-C docks? Any issue? Does it give you 60W of charging power?

    Issue with these docks is that they revert USB-A ports to 2.0 speeds when powering a hi-res screen. We need a USB 3.0 gen 2 device or TB3.

    I'm using the Dell WD15 dock perfectly fine with my Dell U2715H via HDMI. Charges the Macbook, Extends the display, has 4 usb ports and either dock audio or you can pass through your monitor audio. Best value IMO and looks the best.

    Do you have a 13 or 15 MBP?

    The OWC dock isn't compatible with the 15". Nothing whatsoever worked. Sent it back today.

    Why does everyone keep leaving out the Kensington? :( It's basically the same as those two. I researched a lot over the last few months. Bandwidth issues only come up if you drive 4k.
