MacRumors Giveaway: Win a USB-C HDMI Dock With 94W Charging From CalDigit

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with CalDigit to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a USB-C HDMI Dock that's compatible with Apple's USB-C Macs and iPads.

Unlike most Thunderbolt docks on the market, CalDigit's USB-C HDMI Dock provides up to 94W for charging a MacBook, which means that it has enough power to facilitate charging even the 16-inch MacBook Pro at full speeds. Most other docks top out at 87W.

Priced at $219.99, the USB-C HDMI Dock offers a total of 10 ports, including a Thunderbolt 3 port, two HDMI 2.0b ports, one 10Gb/s USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, three USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports that support transfer speeds up to 5Gb/s, an SD Card Reader, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and an Audio In/Out Combo Jack.


CalDigit's USB-C HDMI Dock is compatible with all Thunderbolt and USB-C laptops, so it will work with all of Apple's modern computers. It is also compatible with the USB-C iPad Pro models and the fourth-generation iPad Air, which is equipped with USB-C.

As a universal dock option, when paired with a Thunderbolt 3 laptop, the HDMI USB-C Dock offers a full 40Gb/s performance, and when connected to a USB-C laptop, it offers 10Gb/s performance. It is also compatible with machines that have Thunderbolt 4 ports.

With a Thunderbolt connection, the dock supports two 4K 60Hz displays through the HDMI 2.0 ports, while USB-C users can connect dual 2K 30Hz monitors or a single 4K 30Hz monitor. M1 Mac users can connect a single external monitor up to 4K 60Hz.

The HDMI USB-C Dock offers a few other bells and whistles. With CalDigit's software, all external drives connected to the dock can be ejected with a click, and it supports standalone charging so you can charge accessories like the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch at up to 7.5W with no laptop connected.

This looks really nice. A port combo I would use.

It always bugs me that Apple requires us to buy docks or adapters to duplicate functionality that was previously built into laptops. It’s not like they’re cheaper than 10 years ago even factoring inflation. But that’s a rant against Apple, not this.

Also, thank you MR. The product looks really nice.

How much of my information is sold off by entering into something like this? What's the catch?
You need to provide your name and an e-mail address to enter. Then you can get bonus entries for performing certain actions:


* Sign up for the MacRumors newsletter - they get your e-mail address again to create the subscription
* Follow MacRumors on Twitter. In order to get this entry, you need to have a Twitter account and give MacRumors your Twitter handle so they can confirm that you're following them. So I can't enter this one (I have no Twitter account and I don't want one).
* Be a MacRumors Forum user. You already are (since you're posting here), but you need to provide your forum user name.
* Visit MacRumors on Facebook. You don't give them your Facebook ID and you don't have to do anything when you're there. Just visit the page via the link.
* Visit MacRumors on Instagram. Again, you don't give them an Instagram ID or anything. Just visit the site via the link.
* Visit MacRumors on YouTube. Again, just visit the site via the link.


All information collected (Name, e-mail address, Twitter handle, MacRumors forum username, and maybe cookie data from the Facebook, Instagram and YouTube click-through) goes to MacRumors and (probably) to Gleam - who I believe supplies the software used to run the giveaway.

In general, aside from the Twitter handle, it looks like no more information than MacRumors already has if you have a Forum account.

I bought one and returned it. Using with two 4k monitors over HDMI it would cause my 16" MacBook Pro to double the GPU power draw (10w->20w) causing the fans to run all the time. My understanding is HDMI is the culprit, causes the Radeon GPU to go into higher power mode constantly.

Replaced with Kensington SD5700T since my monitors also have USB-C anyway. USB-C is display port and power consumption went back down and fans are quiet. SD5700T is a real Thunderbolt hub as well and does 90w charging, so slightly less but plenty for my use.

This is a good dock. Used it before I sold my 16" MPB.

But placing the power port is in the back, dead center, is questionable.
