Our best choice is back to around $230 from about $250 if you are looking for a new Thunderbolt 3 dock. The CalDigit TS3 Plus offers a compact and versatile USB-C port, SD card slot, and over-the-competition USB-A ports. This is not the lowest we have seen the TS3 and since we were last posted on our TS3 we still have a good opportunity to save our recommended pick. But discounts on this model are related to rare. 4.2/5 star ratings.
