Thanks to USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 technology, docking stations are easy to connect and can support multiple peripherals, including more than a single display. There are plenty of docking stations on the market, but they're not all made to the same standard.

Windows Central forum member actionresult recently created a thread asking for Thunderbolt 3 docking station recommendations.

I'm looking for a dock that will reliably work with my laptop and support at least two 1080p monitors (any combination of VGA/HDMI ports). I have read about many of them working unreliably so I'm asking if anyone has a personal experience of a good one. My PC is HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-ac0XX and it seems that currently the best one to suit my needs is the Plugable UD-ULTCDL. If anyone...


Actionresult needs a good docking station that can support at least two external 1080p monitors for their HP Spectre x360. The current best docking station that actionresult has come across is Plugable's triple USB-C docking station (opens in new tab), which is indeed a great product.

Do you have a recommendation? Visit the thread, read the other answers, and deliver some knowledge!
