Can anyone recommend a decent USB-C dock for home use? My girlfriend's old dock has finally gone to the graveyard.
Not really majorly bothered on features but it having an SD Card reader would be nice (Though not a deal-breaker)
Preferably one that will last us both quite some time
UGreen and Anker both make some great docks, although given the current issues around Anker you might want to stick with UGreen.
At work though we use Lenovo docks (because we use Lenovo Laptops).
I would recommend that you avoid https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/acc500106-thinkpad-usb-c-dock-gen-2-overview-and-service-parts at all costs. We've had a shit ton of issues with firmware issues and connectivity problems since the day we purchased them. So much so that the Lenovo update tool sometimes can't even figure out which firmware version they have installed.
We've had extremely good luck with the "Hybrid" line of docks like https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-ThinkPad-Hybrid-USB-C-USB/dp/B079N9BJY7/ though. They seem to be super solid, and we've had zero complaints from any of our employees about them.
tankerkiller125 This is great, thanks mate.
Agreed - I generally tend to avoid Anker (excluding what I already have).
The Lenovo docks I actually hadn't even considered! (Whoops...!) - I will be sure to give them a check. Thanks for the heads up
