OWC's 14 Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock Now Available for Purchase

OWC's latest dock, which offers a total of 14 ports and works with Thunderbolt 3-enabled Macs and PCs, is now available for purchase.

The dock, which we reviewed back in October, is one of the best Thunderbolt 3 docks available on the market thanks to its price point, wide port availability, and the fact that it supports up to 85W, which is enough juice to power the 15-inch MacBook Pro.


There are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, five 5Gb/s USB-A ports, an 8Gb/s USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port, a microSD card slot, an SD card slot, a digital audio output port, a Mini DisplayPort Port, S/PDIF output and combo 3.5 mm audio ports, and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

It is OWC's most powerful dock with the highest number of available ports for attaching everything from 4K and 5K displays to your Mac to SSDs, cameras, mice, keyboards, and other accessories. It can also charge your iPhones, iPads, and other devices.

You can buy OWC's 14 port Thunderbolt 3 dock from the MacSales website for $299.

Why not contact them directly? Do you think vendors really visit forums to seek out feedback?

What makes these so expensive? I’m just curious but it seems that anything TB3 has something a bit like “Apple Tax” applied. I get that it’s very fast, but damn: 10x the price fast?


Licensing fees to Intel, likely per port x 10 ports. Some of the other connections likely require licensing fees to other parties, and there are probably patent licensing fees for internals.

Where's eSATA?

Where's 10GbE?


eSATA, like FireWire is old news.

10GbE, however, would be useful for those who really need it.

It’s actually an Intel tax.

8Gb/s USB C? I thought Gen 2 was 10Gb/s

So far the Henge Docks Stone looks like the best all around dock. Only downside is it only supports a single external screen.


Well, that's not a Thunderbolt 3 dock, but rather a USB-C dock. You'll get 10Gbps throughput instead of 40Gbps.

At $199, it is one heck of an expensive USB-C dock, when they mostly go for $100 on the high end and a lot less depending on how many ports you need.

It is, but the front panel USB-C port on this dock has a max speed of 8 Gbps per OWC website.


Looks great. I could use a TB3 dock. Too bad no HDMI, though.

Wish they offered a dual port gigabit or 10Gb network port on this.
