    "This all in one docking station is a perfect fit for any mac book station. With 2 analog audio jacks, one for audio and one for a microphone, the charging port is extremely fast, the HDMI port can output to 4k resolution, a display port, 2 USB 3.0 ports with blazing fast read and write speeds, and a gigabit ethernet port for networking and transferring larger files in no time at all."

    "I would agree thatt this is the best solution. At first i want sure if it would work for thunderbolt but it does say its universal so it very well should. This product is reasonably priced and has good reviews so i would say it is your best option."

    "Works great providing you pay attention to your power needs and do not overtax the system. Should be more than adequate for most."

    "Failed the very first time I used it. When I had both of my 4k monitors, a tablet, my computer connected, I tried to plug in headphones and it caused my monitors both to flicker. When it does work, the video quality was pretty poor. If you need a Thunderbolt 3 dock, look elsewhere and avoid this."

    "It was easy to dock, had lots of outputs, and charged quickly. But I found comparable ones for cheaper right after I bought it. Even though it's partially my fault for not looking I am giving it a 3 for being a moderate value. "

    "This docking station is pretty terrible. I keep having connection issues that never seem to go away fully. Sometimes the ports just don't seem to grab the cables they way they need to. It looks nice, and it's pretty expensive, but the quality just isn't there."
