Plugable today announced the upcoming launch of the Plugable TBT3-UDZ, a Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C Docking Station that offers 100W power delivery, making it suitable for Apple's most powerful notebooks like the new 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The Plugable TBT3-UDZ allows for two additional 4K displays to be connected to a Mac using HDMI or DisplayPort without the need for an external adapter, and there are a total of 14 ports.

Plugable's docking station will be priced at $299 when it launches in the spring of 2020.

I’d be willing to pay a little more if they could include an ethernet port. Am I the only one that finds it odd that it’s missing?

in a business setting, we need ethernet. it's just faster and more secure than wifi.

update - it looks like it has rj45...gigabit too.

I just want 4 USB-C ports. That’s ALL I need. If you have to have the other stuff on there, fine, just give me more than 1 or 2 USB-C.

All the USB ports (back and front) are USB-A. Yuck, why?

Same here. We're nearly at USB 4 and we still don't have just a plain USB hub for this form factor yet.

Bring more Thunderbolt 3 ports. And more USB Type-C 10 Gbps or better as well.
