  • 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 it in, it’s always right side 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.

      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.

      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.

      Awesome, most of the the time

      My entire office has 1080p monitors, Thunderbolt 3 enabled Macbook Pros and use several chained dongles to get their items to work. I have dual 4k monitors con My entire office has 1080p monitors, Thunderbolt 3 enabled Macbook Pros and use several chained dongles to get their items to work. I have dual 4k monitors connected to this dock and 90% of the time it works great. Though, when coming back my computer sleeping, a majority of the time, one of the two monitors wont turn back on and it's showing it's still connected. Completely random. It's pretty good, I can't tell if its the macbook pro, or this dock. But something is funky. I should have gone with the generation before touchbar, they were solid as a rock.

      Seems solid, want to rate higher

      Downsized from a 1st gen USB-C MacBook and CMP to a 2016 15" MacBook Pro. Wanted to save space and be able to run in clamshell and drive 2x 4k monitors. While Downsized from a 1st gen USB-C MacBook and CMP to a 2016 15" MacBook Pro. Wanted to save space and be able to run in clamshell and drive 2x 4k monitors. While a bit more than expensive other offerings, this TB3 expander from Belkin is solid. It is well designed and I've had no issues with my displays or external devices when plugged into it and actively using it throughout the day. So why don't I give it better than 3-stars? Blame Apple, IMO. I come down to my desk in the morning and almost daily it has crashed or restarted when plugged into the Dock. If I've been mobile and plug it into the Dock on return, OSX crashes and restarts. Plugging this device into a TB3 port on the MacBook Pro should not do this nor should simply leaving it connected! Apple no longer "just works." And as a result this Dock doesn't either.

      The Dock has Video problems

      The specifications say 1- 5K or 2- 4K monitors, but mine can only manage one HDMI 1080p, and barely at that. Like another reviewer, I also tried different monit The specifications say 1- 5K or 2- 4K monitors, but mine can only manage one HDMI 1080p, and barely at that. Like another reviewer, I also tried different monitors, cables, and adapters, with better and worse results. Without good video support, it's just a very expensive USB dock. I am also running a 2017 Macbook Pro with Radeo Pro 560 Graphics. I bought the computer and dock at the same time, though, so will update this if I find out it's a problem with the MB instead of the Express Dock HD.
