Review: CalDigit USB-C Dock – an okay solution for MacBook Pro owners, if you're willing to make compromises [Video]
The Late 2016 MacBook Pro lacks many of the convenient ports that we've seen on previous MacBook releases. But if there's a silver lining to be found, it's that the USB-C ports featured on the new machines are super-versatile.With a single USB-C cable, for instance, you can tap into CalDigit's USB-C Dock, which gains you instant access to multiple legacy USB-A ports, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, an extra USB-C port, and an additional 3.5mm headphone jack along with a microphone jack.In addition, the unit is able to charge a MacBook up to 60W. That means that the dock should do fine charging the smaller 13″ MacBook Pro at full speed, but will take a bit longer charging the 15″ MacBook Pro that ships with a larger power adapter.CalDigit's USB-C Dock isn't a perfect device, but it does a pretty good job of turning the new MacBook Pro into a desktop-worthy machine, if you can put up with the compromises you'll have to make in order to use it. Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough for the details.
