Thunderbolt 3 docks may have been slow to roll out but the market is picking up pace now, with Targus throwing their hat in the ring with a new offering aimed at multi-platform users.




The DOCK220USZ packs more ports than letters in its model number. Twin USB-C outlets are paired with a full-sized DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 type A ports, audio in and out, and one Gigabit Ethernet port.

Targus's new dock is capable of driving two 4K monitors at 60Hz, with one monitor on DisplayPort, and the other with a USB-C to DisplayPort cable plugged into the downstream Thunderbolt 3 port.




Targus says the dock can also provide up to 85W of power to connected devices, suitable for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

The dock is available in Space Gray and the dock itself has a small footprint measuring just 5 inches wide and 3.2 inches deep. Interested buyers can pick up the dock, with model number DOCK220USZ, now for $349.99.

    It looks pretty nice, but what the hell happened to the arrangement of ports on the back side. I know you usually dont see that, but the misalignment and seemingly random position of the ports is unbearable.

    That, is without doubt, the worst looking piece of technology that i've ever seen. Can it hang from under your desk, so you don't have to look at it?

    $350? Seems a bit high for a Targus product (not that visually appealing either). I'm surprised by the high dollar amount for these docks.

    Only two USB-A ports, an no card reader... for $350. OWC's dock is a better deal.
