Enjoy and get the most out of your laptop, ultrabook, Chromebook, Android phone or tablet, MacBook, Apple iPhone or iPad, and more with this incredibly compact and featureful docking station. Everything is connected through a 10 Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2x1) USB-C upstream host port designed for modern machines. Downstream it has two 10 Gbps USB-C ports, two 5 Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 1x1) USB-A ports, and two 480 Mbps (USB 2.0) USB-A ports. The first four can deliver 5 V/1.5 A; the latter two are great for keyboards and mice.

This dock has it all, including dual video output via two pairs of HDMI 2.0 and DP ports with the optional use of a single USB-C port for display. Simultaneous output up to 4K@60 Hz is possible with DSC. Forget unreliable Wi-Fi. Connect to your network and Internet at up to 1000 Mbps with wired Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE). You can also easily access your content with the built-in dual microSD/SD card reader with UHS-I (104MBps) support. On top of that, there are three 3.5 mm ports for audio out, a microphone, and one for audio in/out. We've included a USB-C to USB-C cable and an external power adapter to power everything with the device charging up to 80 W. The docking station has a cradle for your device of choice with front-facing LEDs for extra clarity.

Note: Display output requires DisplayLink drivers available for Microsoft Windows 7+, macOS 10.6+, Android 5.0+, ChromeOS R51+, and Ubuntu 14.04. Other Linux-based systems may also work.

Display Your Way: Enhance and expand your screen real estate. This docking station has dual HDMI 2.0 and dual DisplayPort 1.4 ports for DP/DP, DP/HDMI, HDMI/DP, and HDMI/HDMI dual output at up to 4K@60 Hz each. The rear USB-C port can also output in tandem with the rightmost DP/HDMI pair for extra flexibility.

10Gbps USB input will severly bottleneck the dock. Hard pass.
Agreed, should've been TB3/4 for sure....

Maybe that's why they're calling it a "Dual Monitor" dock, yet the pics show 4x video ports ? wtf

Also probably the reason it's only $114 instead of the $200+ for the better spec'd docks out there already

Beat me to it. I don't understand most of these docks as they connect via a usb-c 3.1. What's the use of having a gazillion ports when bandwidth is shared from weak pipe.

You'd want 100Gb/s pipe minimum for this level of connectivity.
