    Worked for a few months

    • Written by Orlando B from Pasadena

    Was running dock with two Dell P2417 monitors and USB keyboard/mouse. Very standard. After a few months, the random freezing started happening, then one display wouldn't connect. Then eventually the dock was replaced. This time after a month the dock failed. Tried all the usual fixes, updating to latest OS, reseating cables, using different cables to no avail. Give us a better solution Apple.

    Horrible product - NIC rarely works

    • Written by David G from Mission Viejo

    This is an expensive product at $349 but pretty much the only option offered. The NIC is totally unreliable. The vast majority of the time, my MBP says the NIC port is disconnected. Belkin just replaced it via warranty and the replacement is no better.

    Note: I gave it a single star only because there is no option for a ZERO star rating.

    Not compatible with 4k 60Hz Monitor and MacBook Pro 2018

    • Written by Andreas W from Barcelona

    I already had TWO Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express HD Hubs. I returned the first one after experiencing constant flickering and 4k monitor only running on 30Hz instead of 60Hz.
    Before exchanging the Hub for a new one I tried different cables which did not fix the issue. Same cables work perfectly fine when using them on my PC with a GeForce 1080ti. So cables are not the issue, neither the monitor.

    When I got the new Hub I got at least the 4k Monitor running on 60Hz but the flicker issue is not resolved.

    The product is absolutely unstable. When flickering appears disconnecting the Hub or restart the monitor sometimes helps but is not a longterm solution.

    Belkin TB3 keeps on crashing My Macbook

    Simply not compatible with MacBooks, my MacBook keeps on cashing ( three to five times a day ) when connecting it to the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD!!

    It works great for me

    • Written by David M from Bothell

    I've no idea what all the negative reviews are about but this product works great with my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018). Its running two Asus VS278Q 27in monitors at 1920x1080 as well as the native display. One external monitor is connected to the Doc DisplayPort to DisplayPort and the other vis the Docs Thunderbolt port with a Thunderbold to DisplayPort cable. Also connected is an external USP mouse and USB hard drive

    Working great, stable, does exactly what I expected. Its a tad expensive but I'll take "just works" over futzing forever with magic settings, etc.

    Lousy product and extremely overpriced

    • Written by Menno van B from Woerden

    It cannot run 2 external monitors via this dock. Only the first time I have gotten an image on the second screen, after that I had to connect one screen to this dock and the other directly to my MacBook Pro.
    The power supply is insufficient to power the mac and a poe-device at the same time...... so I have to connect my apple dvd-player directly to my mbp as well!
    My advice: don't buy this product and accept that you have to use all four of the mbp's usb-c slots and have a lot of cables on your desktop. This product is a waste of money

    JUNK!

    • Written by Brad R from Scottsdale

    I buy these for my employees that have Mac devices ONLY because the latest Operating System killed all of our "plugable" brand usb hubs. We love the Pliugable brand devices and have had exceptional luck with them. Almost all of the Belkin hubs we have purchased have failed within a few months. Also, they only allow one Monitor, so not even as good as the $100 Plugable that allows for 2 additional monitors. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Many and constant error messages

    • Written by Klaus R from Fort Lauderdale

    Purchased the product together with my Macbook Pro 2018. I have constantly error messages popping up.
    For example:
    "Disconnect USB devices, power consumption too high" I have 3 USB devices connected; Belkin iPhone charger, Apple Watch Charger, and a External HD with own Power connection. I'm using the Belkin Hub to charge my MAcBook.
    "unsafe USB device disconnect..." Seems that the hub disconnects USB devices intermittently und this causes the error.
    Since one of the devices is a external HD, I'm afraid it might causes damage.
    I think I have to return the product.

    I am experiencing the common problem that doesn’t have a solution. Screen goes black intermittently and I have to wait about 5 seconds for the picture to reappear on the monitor. I expect more for $350

    Very sensitive to USB & Thunderbolt issues

    • Written by Emily S from Wien

    Nice looking dock with a good collection of ports and 85W charging over USB C but after all the problems I've had getting it to work, I'm not impressed. Months of crashes came down to problems with the USB C cable delivered with the device, which went away when changing to a higher spec cable. However, the device will still not run two Apple Thunderbolt Displays on a Thunderbolt daisy chain. If they could make this thing stable, it would be a great product. As it is, I cannot recommend it!

    Same old garbage

    • Written by Timothy P from Annandale

    Ten years on and we still have to put up with this nonsense. Not enough connectivity on Mac laptops and all we have for bridges are these oversized Belkin monstrosities. I don't care about how many monitors it will support. I just need a reasonably sized and priced device that accommodates multiple USBs, thunderbolt and firewire for backwards compatibility for legacy audio gear.

    Come on Apple get your act together and give us a decent accessory. Perhaps even different options for different user needs.

    Useless with Pro Tools

    • Written by Andre N from Dubai

    Introduces a high-frequency noise into my signal chain the culprit is clearly the expensive Belkin Thunderbolt 3 hub. Only bought the hub because Apple refuses to put HDMI and/or USB ports alongside their T/B 3 ports. The Belkin is in the bin.

    Product is unstable. Would be very satisfied if it worked.

    • Written by Jing Z from Seattle

    The concept is really good, I liked the port combination and the looks.

    However for me with my MacbookPro2018 it didn't work. At first the external display attached would flicker/flash every few 10 seconds and when using the dock in clamshell mode, and the flicker would go away if I opened the Macbook display. After few days of use the flicker would persist whether I close the macbook screen or not. The flicker had a chance to go away if I reconnect thunderbolt cable, and the screen flickering would 100% come back if I restart my Macbook. The flicker is completely annoying and random.
    I don't like the idea of having to plug and unplug my thunderbolt dock multiple times every time I want to dock my Macbook, for such a premium priced product.

    Livid with Apple for Selling this!

    • Written by Matthew C from Calgary

    Thanks Apple for neglecting to prominently display which of your computers this is compatible with. I bought this at the same time as my new 2018 MacBook and when I tried to connect the two, I got an error. Upon searching the internet for help I found, as many on this site have noted, that the Express Dock is not compatible with the 12' MacBook. Apple, I'm not impressed!

    Sometimes works - sometimes doesnt

    • Written by Jeckle C from 深圳

    I bought this about a year ago. Plugged in everything at the beginning but started having problems thereafter. Started unplugging each accessory until now I’m pretty much just using it for power only. VERY expensive power supply. Wish they had a firmware update or something that would fix it.

    Belkin did no QA on this product

    • Written by Tom R from Philadelphia

    This product is great... in theory. I have 2 4k displays plugged in to this at my desk, and was looking forward to only plugging a single cable into my macbook to dock it. This product not only does not work, but it doesn't even "not work" consistently. Sometimes no displays will work, sometimes on the USBC display will work, other times only the DP display will work. Maybe 1 out of 100 times, both displays will come on and function properly. This is usually after 15-20 minutes of plugging and unplugging the dock every morning. Belkin support does not help. Garbage product.

    Don't attempt to use an external screen with hdmi cable

    • Written by Raphael N from Opio

    If I use the dock to connect a 32 inch screen in hdmi, every time I plug the dock to the macbook pro it simply freezes the mac. If you plug the hdmi cable directly to the mac, there is no issue. I though that paying such a price for a usb hub would assure me a certain level of quality, this is obviously not the case. Belkin support page for this product has no useful information, the product is old and should have been patched, but no effort is done on this side as well. Take the money and go skiing, it's a better investment.

    Ethernet Port BUGGY!

    • Written by Marc F from New York City

    At startup or reboot the ETHERNET PORT ON THE DOCK DOESN'T ACTIVATE. Reconnecting the plug to the dock doesn't work either - the only solution is to replug it on a switch or router in order to make it work.

    BELKIN should get its work done and deliver a firmware update as the ethernet port remains unusable at this point!

    These are issues on a CURRENT TOP-OF-THE-LINE 15" MACBOOK PRO and up-to-date High Sierra, and equally occuring on Sierra, as well !

    Compatibility issues

    • Written by Alex L from Winterthur

    As others have stated before me, this product is NOT compatible with a 12" MacBook (2017). Had I known before I would've saved myself a lot of money. It's absolutely ridiculous that this isn't stated anywhere!

    I am not having any issues in the other reviews. It is working great.

    • Written by Darryl B from Chicago

    I am writing this after reviewing a number of negative reviews. I checked with the company's desk top support team and they have not had any of those issues either. We have ~50 of these deployed I believe.

    I have been using the dock at work daily without any of the issues others have run into. I have a dual Dell monitor setup and use the built in monitor. I have one monitor connected by the HDMI slot and the second in a USB-C to DVI adapter. I also use the ethernet and both back USB 3 connections. Add using the second USB-C slot to connect to to the MacBook Pro and I have all the back connectors full. I have used the front connector to hook up a non-apple USB 3 DVD drive. I also use the head phone or speaker jack on the front.

    The only problem I have had is it stopped charging the Mac at one point. I power cycled the Belkin Dock and everything was back to normal.
