    "I really wanted this product to be great. I love the idea of having every connection I could ever want all in one place. Unfortunately, it was only a month or so before I lost the thunderbolt port. It seemed to loosen and then the cord just wouldn't stay in the port any longer. I'm going to start looking for a higher quality dock."

    "If you need a port for your computer and have run out, you need this dock. Completely USB compatible and allows you to hook up another two, yes two, displays. This has doubled my displays so I can follow all the things I want to watch at the same time. I have 4 giant screen constantly running the game, or checking on my investments, or whatever you need to do. This thing is amazing."

    "I had so much clutter behind my PC and was looking for a way to dock my electronics in one place. This docking station more than fit the bill. It is very sleek and priced very well for how much it does. I do a lot of video editing and this allows me to have my USB headphones, microphone, camera, router, iPhone, iPad and more all connected at the same time. This docking station is one of the most useful pieces of computer equipment I own. Clutter makes me crazy and this docking stations keeps me sane! Buy it to keep your computer area neat!"

    "I love my laptop but it so often runs out of power at the inopportune time. Trying to play some games while waiting for a flight? Well, my laptop is not the answer for that. It will say that you have 30 minutes left while lightly dimming the screen. This recommendation of the Thunderbolt 3 and 2 docks is a great answer for my needs. "

    "Ok techies, this one is NOT just for you. My simple non-technical self has one of these too. I love it because it has the adapt for a small SD card as well, like the one in my phone which I need to empty a lot to get more room on my phone. This adapter is perfect to do that really fast onto my MacBook. Must-Have!!! I don't like how it's not flush with the top of the computer, so I didn't give the full 5 star rating."
