Reviews
OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock (Space Gray) - 13 Ports, 2x Thunderbolt 3, 5x USB 3.1, Mini DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product OK, one OWC support agent rude and dismissive First up, while this is an expensive dock, it does provide a serious amount of extra connectivity for Thunderbolt 3 based Macs. Having spent near £300 on it I had high, but reasonable expectations of its performance. The first unit I got repeatedly stopped charging my laptop even with nothing else plugged into the dock (for background, the dock is specced to deliver 60 watts back over the Thunderbolt connection to charge your laptop - my MacBook Pro draws 60 watts maximum, but again even when it was sleeping, the dock sometimes stopped charging it, when there's no way it could be pulling anything like 60 watts.) Scan Computers, who I bought the unit from, were nothing short of brilliant, but OWC themselves were a different story. The first person to reply to my e-mail advised me to open a return with Scan Computers, which I did. While I was waiting for the RMA to complete, another of OWC's support team replied to my original e-mail, apparently unaware that it had already been addressed. She told me that I was expecting too much of the dock and that it wouldn't charge my laptop while having other things plugged in (at this point the most I'd had plugged into it were an ethernet cable and a USB flash drive, hardly power-hungry, but I'd also tried it with nothing plugged in and seen the power delivery fail). When I asked how it made any sense that the product would behave like that, making it nothing more than a faulty £300 laptop charger, she doubled down on it and sent several stroppy e-mails, the last one suggesting I perform basic troubleshooting steps that (a) were unreasonable based on what the dock is supposed to do, and (b) I had already done (and said so) nonetheless to cover all bases. So, product? OK, if you get one that works. My replacement still seems a bit quirky when reconnecting - it takes 20-30 seconds to properly detect my external display, for instance. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you really need the number of USB ports - there are other options from Belkin, etc. Scan Computers? Excellent and highly recommended. OWC? Will be avoiding like the plague and suggest others do the same. £300 is a lot of money to spend only to be told you're an idiot for expecting the product to do what was promised.
