    Useful but needed a little bit more forethought

    The unit feels study and well made. It looks good next to other silver Apple accessories such as the Apple Keyboard and Magic Track Pad 2.

    Functionally the product works well. When Docking an MacBook Pro (with ThunderBolt 3) machine to it, it is able to charge the MacBook it via the Thunderbolt 3 port, so there is no need to get out the MacBook's Charger.

    However, I feel that the product does not have enough USB-C/ThunderBolt 3 ports. After connecting it to the computer thus using one of the two USB Type-C/Thunderbolt ports you are only left with one free USB Type-C/Thunder port. Although there are another three USB 3.1 ports and an ethernet port, I was still wanting for more. The Display port for instance should have really been a HDMI port.

    I bought this for home use as I have many accessories, but suspect this will end up at work where I have fewer accessories. Saving me a few seconds in the morning as it will bundle the display cable, ethernet cable and power cable into one Thunderbolt cable for me to connect to my MacBook Pro (with Thunderbolt 3).

    The product comes with a regular 85w laptop charger to power the dock and the region's local power cable. But you should be able use this anywhere in the world if you get the right power cable for the charger. It is also supplied with a Thunderbolt 3 cable (approx 1m in length).
