Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a nice price on CalDigit’s TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock, which is currently down to $210 at Amazon and B&H. While the dock’s street price has steadily fallen from its original $310 over the past year, we still typically see it hover in the $240-$250 range online. We saw it briefly drop to $200 at B&H back in March, but this deal brings it to its lowest price since and represents the cheapest it has been on Amazon to date.
The TS3 Plus is the top pick in our guide to the best Thunderbolt 3 docks. It’s certainly pricey, even with this deal, but for power users who want to add (or condense) a desktop’s worth of accessories through a single port, it’s a good buy. It packs 15 ports into its handsome industrial design, including two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports, five USB-A 3.1 ports, USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, an SD card reader, analog audio connectors, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and an uncommon S/PDIF digital optical audio port. It can drive two 4K displays at a 60Hz refresh rate (albeit with the appropriate adapter) and supply up to 87W of power to charge high-power laptops like the 16-inch MacBook Pro at close to full speed. And though it wasn’t always the absolute fastest dock we tested in terms of data transfer or read/write speeds, it was consistently a top performer.If you don’t need that many connections at your desk, though, we also have deals on more casual USB-C hubs, Amazon Fire HD tablets, SSDs, gaming headsets, PS4 games, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
