After doing more than 40 hours of research and hands-on testing of 10 Thunderbolt 3 docks with more than $7,000 worth of high-end gear, we’ve determined that the best Thunderbolt 3 dock for Mac or PC owners who are looking to expand their Thunderbolt-equipped computer’s array of inputs and outputs—or just to make plugging in and unplugging more convenient—is Plugable’s Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station (officially named the TBT3-UDV). Most docks have a similar array of ports that perform identically, but our pick has five USB-A ports, more than any other dock except for our runner-up (which also has five), and a small footprint if you stand it vertically; it can charge a 13-inch MacBook Pro at full speed and is the most affordable full-featured dock you can buy.
