Amazon is now offering the OWC 14-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock for $259.99 shipped after you clip the on-page coupon. This model fetches $319 at B&H and sold for between $329 and $349 all of last year at Amazon. While you will find it down at $280 right now directly from OWC, today’s deal delivers an additional $20 in savings for the lowest we can find and the first sizable price drop since last summer at Amazon. The Space Gray aluminum build houses 14 ports of connectivity including USB 3.1 Gen 2/Gen 1, Thunderbolt 3, a micro/SD reader, mini DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, S/PDIF, and combo audio I/O. That includes dual 4K or single 5K display action via the DisplayPort or Thunderbolt 3, up to 85W of power passthrough, and the unit ships with an 18-inch Thunderbolt 3 cable, an external power supply, and the power cable. More details below.
A more affordable way to introduce a Thunderbolt dock into your setup is with this Belkin model. This one features dual HDMI video options, 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 3, 5Gb/s USB 3.0, and 2Gb/s Ethernet at $140 shipped. So it’s not quite as extensive in the I/O department, nor does it include a card reader, but it does deliver some HDMI options and comes in at a far lower price point.
