Can you purchase Plugable’s TBT3-UDV Thunderbolt 3 dock with a longer Thunderbolt 3 cable? I’d rather pay slight more for the dock with the longer 2m cable and not waste the 0.5m cables. I understand the limitations of the longer cables (20gbps vs 40gbps) but for my application 20gbps of bandwidth is sufficent. If not, no big deal I can purchase the cables and docks separately. I just want to make sure I’m not missing something.
Thanks for posting!
To your question, no, you are not missing something. The TBT3-UDV dock is only available with the 0.5m 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 cable in the box. If you wish to use a longer 20Gbps Thunderbolt 3 cable it must be purchased separately. We offer 20Gbps cables in 1 meter -> https://plugable.com/products/tbt3-20g1mand 2 meter lengths -> https://plugable.com/products/tbt3-20g2m
An important note (and as you mention), the longer cables offer 20Gbps of bandwidth as opposed to the 40Gbps the 0.5m cable offers. In addition, a 40Gbps connection is required if two displays are to be connected to the dock.
