    Excellent product overall
    I bought it for my HP spectre (top 2017, 4k display), works out of the box for Fedora Linux (I have double OS Windows/Linux setup but did not have a chance to test it under Windows). The Thunderbolt device is recognized and authorized by the Linux kernel automatically.

    The bigger DP works bringing HDMI audio to my Dell 27″ Ultrasharp monitor (bought more than 5 years ago). The other video outputs were not tested but should not have troubles too. I have not tested the double monitor set-up yet.

    The second Thunderboilt USB-C port was tested with the ICY BOX 2.5 RAID enclosure (I have 3 of them for my huge photos collection), the speed is amazing. The 3.0 ports are connected to other devices, they are working flawlessly.

    The Gigabit LAN was never tested, but it is recognized by the system.

    The CONEXANT audio behind the audio port has analogue and digital codecs and works flawlessly.

    The card reader is just fine (why not having a dedicated micro SD too…).

    The two side USB-C ports have troubles recognizing external USB drives if more drives are connected to USB 3.0 ports, but this is may be due to Linux kernel not yet fully supporting newer devices (which normally improves with time).

    In my opinion, it is a little overpriced, I’d love to see several more good quality cables in the box for the same money. However, it does look and feel like a great, non-cheap product. Taking into account all strong and weak things, it is a very impressive product.

    IMHO, I would love to see some on/off switches in the next version of the product hot- or cold- enabling features.

    Work as described. So far, I’ve tested the USB 3.0, Mini DP, and USB-C connection. All works with no issue, exactly what I needed for my office.
