OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock Has 13 Blissful Ports for Amazing Connectivity

My new MacBook Pro is thin and light and, with just two USB-C ports, is lacking in ports. My iMac does better but still lacks the degree of port-related connectivity I used to have. That’s why the $299 OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a perfect fit; it offers a ton of ports and speeds that were unimaginable a few years ago.

I’ve had docks for my laptop and desktop before. In the past, however, they were all about convenience. As computers ship with fewer and fewer ports, however, docks become a thing of necessity rather than convenience. The OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock reverses the “few-ports” issue and does so in a refined, fast manner. As OWC puts it, the dock offers “13 ports and endless possibilities.”

The dock is a solid rectangle of metal and plastic. It measures 1.0 x 9.1 x 3.5″ and weighs just 1.2 lb. It looks simple but packs a huge amount of technology inside, and it offers a wide range of connectivity options.

Inside the box you will find:

  • The OWC 13 Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock in Space Gray
  • A 1.6′ / 0.5m Thunderbolt 3 Cable
  • An external power supply
  • A power cable
  • A limited 2-year warranty

I love that the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock ships with an included Thunderbolt 3 cable. I love that it has a solid look and feel. I love that it has ports to spare. And I love that the setup process could not be easier.

With the 13 ports you need, OWC’s new Thunderbolt 3 Dock brings unbelievable connectivity to your laptop through an included Thunderbolt 3 cable, and, delivers charging power to your laptop and other devices, all at the fastest speeds possible.
