  • Overview

    An all-in-one solution, the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD lets you power your Mac, drive two 4K displays simultaneously*, and get up to 40 Gbps of super-fast data transfer with just a single cable.

    In total, the dock supports one 5K display or two 4K displays. And with two built-in Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can connect your Thunderbolt 3–enabled Mac and daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt devices at the same time.

    For the first time, Thunderbolt 3 technology supports dual 4k displays*, letting you connect to both the DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 3 ports included on the dock. (Compatible with other USB-C video adapters such as HDMI and VGA sold separately.)

    Thunderbolt 3

    Thunderbolt 3 is a truly universal port, combining the versatility of USB-C with data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps. It supports charging, high-speed PCIe data transfer, DisplayPort, VGA and HDMI (via supported adapters) — all from a single port. And it’s completely reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always the right way up.

    Offering double the speed of the previous generation, Thunderbolt 3 supercharges data transfer between peripherals, leaving you with plenty of bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without a hub or switch.

      Will NOT work with the Apple USB SuperDrive

      The Apple USB SuperDrive is a principal accessory that should be compatible with all docks, USB hubs, etc that are marketed as accessories for Apple laptops but The Apple USB SuperDrive is a principal accessory that should be compatible with all docks, USB hubs, etc that are marketed as accessories for Apple laptops but unfortunately that is not the case. This product is another example that is not compatible. The SuperDrive is not mentioned on the product page at all and I had to discover it's compatibility after purchasing. There are other alternatives that are compatible but Apple will block this review if I list them. I can only suggest you look elsewhere.

      Careful with 4K MST Displays like Sharp PN-K321 ASUS PQ321Q

This means that the Belkin dock can only suppo The 15" Macbook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 supports only two video streams out each side of the machine for 4 total. This means that the Belkin dock can only support two monitors. More importantly, an MST (multi-stream-transport) display counts as TWO streams because of, well, the multi-stream-transport. This means that if you connect one of these listed monitors to the Belkin dock via a Macbook Pro, it will be the only monitor that works. Or, if you connect some other monitor first, then the MST monitor will not run. I am particularly disappointed to not have this clear from the start, as these two 4K monitors were the first recommended by Apple, and the Sharp version was available in the Apple Store for quite some time and implicitly recommended for operation with Macs. This behavior seems obvious to me now, but I wish it were more obvious before I invested the time. Best of luck for your configuration.

      DisplayPort to DisplayPort on Dell P2715Q Not Functioning

      Everything about this dock works great, except the video. I have used multiple cables that work on other devices so it's not a cable issue or monitor issue.

I'll update the review if this gets resolved. I'm using the latest MBP15 that was released Spring 2017.

      Does not work with Apple products

      Let's be clear on this, Apple sells it in their store, does not work with MacBook Pro 2016 or 17 very well at all. If you can get USB-C to USB-C to even recogni Let's be clear on this, Apple sells it in their store, does not work with MacBook Pro 2016 or 17 very well at all. If you can get USB-C to USB-C to even recognise the dock, then you may get it working for a while. Try adding a 4k or 5k display, no chance, it just does not work at all. Who is at fault? Quite clearly Apple. They no longer put in quality control when updating their OS to ensure it works with products they sell in their stores. Apple rode the Steve Jobs train for a good while, now though we are seeing what this company looks like without a strong man at the top. For me it is no longer buy buy, it is bye bye Apple, you lost a customer!

      Functional, and does what expected, but it has some kinks to work out

      I was on the fence as to whether to give this product a 3 or 4 star rating. It does work with my 2016 Touchbar MacBook Pro. I have a 4K monitor connected via I was on the fence as to whether to give this product a 3 or 4 star rating. It does work with my 2016 Touchbar MacBook Pro. I have a 4K monitor connected via DisplayPort, a USB keyboard, and an external Thunderbolt 2 drive (connected via a Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 cable) call connected to it. It mostly does the job just fine. I would be happier if there were more ports. What it does do really well is charge my MacBook and allow me to connect only one cable for charging the MacBook and connecting my monitor and all of my other devices. Previously I had to plug-in or un-plug several cables whenever moving my MacBook to/from my desk. That being said, it's not perfect. I have my 4K monitor set to scale to 2650x1440 and sometimes when waking up from sleep, it comes back as a pixel-doubled 1920x1080 retina resolution. This may be a problem with OS X and not with the dock, as I hadn't experienced it before, and started noticing it a few weeks ago after installing some OS X updates. Another odd thing about it is that, when the computer is sleeping, the monitor keeps powering on and off throughout the night. Before having the dock, I connected the monitor directly with a USB-C to DisplayPort cable and didn't have this problem. Now I have to power off the monitor each day. Overall I'd say there is a lot of work to do on the Thunderbolt 3/MacBook integration, although I think Apple shares some responsibility in this as I've had other Thunderbolt 3/USB-C issues unrelated to this dock. I used an Apple Thunderbolt (2) Monitor with my older MacBook for a few years and it always worked perfectly. So it's a little frustrating that I have to deal with these kind of issues now. But I hope that as Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C become more mature, some of these issues will go away. I almost gave this Belkin dock a 4 star rating because, in spite of it's problems, it seems to be the best available right now to use with the latest MacBook models. I'm not aware of a better dock (although welcome the opportunity of being corrected), so I'd still recommend buying it if you use a later model MacBook and need a desk/large monitor setup. But just be aware, it's far from perfect.

      Worked great until all of a sudden it didn't

It worked great for 6 months, no connection issues, and then all of a sudden in the last month when I plug my computer in I keep getting an error message saying that this accessory is not compatible with Apple products. I have to plug and unplug the cable into my computer about a dozen times/ day to get it to work, which makes me nervous about wearing out the receiving end on my computer. After a cursory search to try to find a fix there's nothing obvious on the Apple forums. Either way, I shouldn't have to waste my work hours searching for a fix to equipment that costs a combined $5,000+. Really disappointed with the user experience on this one.
