My experience with this specific dock has not been great:

* The micro SD slot broke after the 3rd use. I mean, mechanically: the slot is electrically working – the spring keeping the card in place is broken so it's unusable anymore. Now I use an adapter through the regular SD slot on its right. And no, I didn't use a hammer to push the micro SD card in the slot...
* The headphone audio output is noisy: a ticking background sound is present. Not a big deal for me since I don't use it. Still, annoying.
* The optical audio output never worked. I casually discovered it during a test I intended to do leveraging the Toslink output. Again, not a big deal for me. Still, bummer.
* The USB bus is "noisy" too: there's a ground issue or something similar. I discovered it by attaching a USB DAC. It introduced a "cyclical loop" in my Hi-Fi rig hearable through headphones. I went crazy to spot the culprit (I have 5 components in my Hi-Fi chain). Connecting the DAC directly to the Mac solved the issue. Granted, it's clearly an audio specific issue. The USB data transfers aren't affected. Still, disappointing.

For the record, I own other OWC devices and I'm mostly satisfied with them. I'm not bashing the whole company. This dock has been disappointing, though. I keep it because the remaining ports works and it's still useful/convenient.

Was seriously considering the 14 port dock until reading the comments here… Moving on!

I bought this during the previous sale. I was a bit surprised at the lack of a HDMI port. I tried a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and had distorted colors. A USB-C to HDMI cable worked for me though.

My unit came with a 100 watt rated thunderbolt 4 cable rather than the expected thunderbolt 3 cable.

I never bought from OWC since the experience I had with their SSDs many many years ago. They might be much better now, but its just hard after certain experiences.

I've used this dock for a few years and can't comment on the audio issues or SD card as I don't use those ports. I run two external monitors through the back of the dock and my biggest complaint is when waking my macbook pro from sleep the 2nd monitor often doesn't turn on and I have to manually unplug it twice from the back of the dock before my computer recognizes it. OWC said this is an apple problem and not their problem. I will be looking at other brands when I go to upgrade my dock.
