  • Overview

    Transform your workspace with the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD, the single-cable docking solution. At 40 Gbps, it offers twice the bandwidth of its predecessor. And — thanks to the versatility of Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) — it supports power to your Mac, video and data transfer, all over an included Thunderbolt 3 cable, for seamless connectivity at your desktop.

    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 added connectivity, the dock includes three USB 3 (5 Gbps) ports, Gigabit Ethernet, audio in, audio out, DisplayPort and DC power (adapter included). HDMI and other video protocols are also supported via compatible adapters (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'l 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 Mac Airbook that has single USB C port!!!! Don't bother!

      The docking station is a great idea if you have the Pro with a Thunderbolt 3 USB C secondary port. If you have the MACbook Air with only one USB C port then yo The docking station is a great idea if you have the Pro with a Thunderbolt 3 USB C secondary port. If you have the MACbook Air with only one USB C port then you are out of luck, this docking station will NOT, I repeat NOT work. It is NOT compatible because the USB C port is just that, a USB-C port it is NOT a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port. I am going this a 2 star because the store should probably know that it is not compatible. I had no idea there was a difference between a USB-C and a USB-C thunderbolt, I don't think most people would. It is getting a bad rating because they should probably state on the box somewhere the MODEL of computers it is compatible with or at least a statement saying it is NOT compatible with MAC Airbook with only one USB-C. Try the OWC USB-C Dock, it has 2 USB C ports, 4 USB ports, Headphone jack, SD Card slot, HDMI and a Cat5. Has a few minor irritating issues like when my computer goes into sleep mode it looses connection and often has to be turned off and back on. Other than that it works well with my external drive, my trackball mouse, usb flash drives, etc...

      MacBook Pro 15-inch, Late 2016

      I've been using this with my Late 2016 MacBook Pro for several months both at home and at work. The dock connects to a single LG 38UC99-W 38-Inch 21:9 Curved U I've been using this with my Late 2016 MacBook Pro for several months both at home and at work. The dock connects to a single LG 38UC99-W 38-Inch 21:9 Curved UltraWide QHD+ IPS Monitor; Wired Ethernet as well as a few USB devices. The problem is the display is normally not recognized when initially connecting up my MacBook to the dock. Removing the power from the dock and replacing will often resolve the issue but sometimes that doesn't even work. I'm not sure if the problem is with the dock or the MacBook but it is a problem. Spending this much for a dock and a MacBook this should work without any issues whatsoever. Once connected, the dock does what it is supposed to do. With my old MacBook (which I miss) I used a CalDigit dock with no problems.

      Not So Convenient

      I bought this dock from the online store more than month ago, I faced a lot of issues in the beginning, monitor is not working, monitor black outs, flashes, etc I bought this dock from the online store more than month ago, I faced a lot of issues in the beginning, monitor is not working, monitor black outs, flashes, etc... (this is with one ultra wide monitor only - not two 4K monitors!!!!) Before this dock the monitor was working perfectly through its display port cable and a thunderbolt 3 to display port adapter connected directly to the MacBook. I contacted Belkin support, then I figured out a work around myself, but not a convenient one, every time the monitor start flickering or goes into black outs you have to restart your MacBook (could be multiple times) until the MacBook and the dock detect the monitor and other connected devices correctly, which is a real pain to do daily, or 2 to 3 times per day. I'm sure there is an issue with the firmware they are using, it needs to be updated to sort out all the connectivity issues and display issue, especially with this high price. I really wish belkin will revert back with a solution / firmware update, or I may take it back to the Apple Store for a return.
