Multimedia Pro Dock

If you have a Mac with M1 or M2, it can only connect to one external display. This means you can use one monitor to extend your display and another to mirror it. Note that you can’t connect multiple external monitors to extend your display. However, if you use other Mac models or Windows 11, you can connect Thunderbolt 4 docks to expand your workspace and increase your productivity.

We should also note that Satechi warns the Mac supports Single Stream Transport (SST) rather than Multi-Stream Transport (MST). So Mac users will get a different display effect compared with Windows. Anyway, the dock can stream video to two displays in extended mode while mirroring the other two when you connect four external displays.

What about the rivals?

The Thunderbolt 4 Multimedia Pro Dock is now available for $349.99 in the US and the European Union. But the company said it will go on sale in the UK and Australia soon.

At first sight, this is the best Thunderbolt 4 hub on the market. Maybe it’s so. But other brands are offering similar products. For instance, the Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub is available for $200. The latter offers a more compact shape with five ports, dual 4K display output, and 60W of charging pass-through. The CalDigit TS3 Plus is another rival sold for as little as $220. With an extensive feature set and all-metal construction, this dock offers significant savings. However, one thing is clear – when it comes to the ratio of the number of ports and price, the Satechi hub stands out.
