Eats up one thunderbolt port and only gives you 2 HDMI ports and 1Gbps Ethernet in exchange…. That’s a hard pass.

I was recently doing research on TB4 docks to power two 4k monitors, one at 144hz/HDR, the other at 60hz, and being able to plug in all my downstream accessories on one cord.

Belkin had TERRIBLE reviews. See here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09MG5GJQL/#customerReviews

I'd stay away from this one.

Reputable options include Caldigit, Anker, Razer, Plugable, OWC and more. I went with Razer. The Belkin was the ONLY TB4 product that looked like a total miss.

edit: Actually Lenovo has a thunderbolt 4 dock that looks like crap too, so it's not JUST Belkin.

And a note about going with Razer - I actually avoided even checking out their product for the longest time because I didn't trust that a gaming company would be producing the product I was looking for, but their price was competitive and it actually has all the features I want.

I'm no technical expert - but why has this thing got USB 2.0 ports?? Shouldn't all the USB A's be at least 3.1?
