USB-C laptop docks


(Richard Cunningham) #1

I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but there are whole load of USB-C laptop docks you can now buy - a lot more than there were for thunderbolt. I’m wondering if anyone has had good experiences on these particularly on MacBook Pros (we’ve bought a few of those recently at work).

I tried two with my MacBook Adorable when I got it last year. An Anker one and something else. Neither worked as it should. Mainly display issues. In the end I got the Apple one which works great hooking up my DVI Cinema Display.
I think they’ve gotten better since then tho. Seen plenty of youtubers rate the Lention one https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XXBNY7X/ref=cm_sw_r_oth_api_6ss0zbBQAWKTJ?tag=dombarcom-21

It’s a pity the Apple ones don’t have more USB ports, overall it feels a bit messy if you attach a hub and a wired ethernet to it.
