If your thinking of the 18 port one / consider using more than 1 monitor not in duplicate mode - get a Thunderbolt 3 hub for 50$ more like CalDigit Ts3+
Don't waste your time on USB-C or display link hubs.

One of those looks suspiciously similar to an iPhone…

Note that this is not a thunderbolt dock. It is basically a very overpriced USB hub that happens to also provide some extra ports for ethernet and limited video out functionality. And VGA out? It's like they added garbage ports just to say they have "18" ports :rolleyes:

It almost makes me smile to see anything in 2020 still support the VGA port

Big flaw here being it’s USB-C not thunderbolt so with Apple still not allowing MST you can only get mirrored external displays if you use multiple monitors.

The fact you need to pay extra for specific thunderbolt docks to be able to use multiple monitors even on “pro” devices is absurd.
