CalDigit TS4 Thunderbolt Dock

Michael Potuck:

CalDigit has unveiled the latest iteration of its popular Thunderbolt Station series and it’s really gone all out. The TS4 Thunderbolt dock comes with an impressive array of 18 ports for Mac (and PC) to offer what the company calls “extreme connectivity.”

You get 3 Thunderbolt 4 ports (a gain of one), 3 USB-C, 5 USB-A, DisplayPort, SD, microSD, Ethernet, and various audio jacks. I’d still like to see one of these with more USB-A ports to avoid needing a hub, too.

Love this. An important thing to highlight is that the ethernet port is now 2.5GbE, which is a first and a welcome addition (not counting the much older TB3 dock from OWC that includes 10GbE but only has 60w charging.)

Would be curious to see how much the collective performance of these ports suffers when every port on the dock is populated and "busy".

$360 and the audio jacks don’t do Toslink optical? That’s disappointing.
