Finally i decided to write something about the performance with macOS.
Well, everyone knows this is a pretty tb3 dock, and i use it with my DELL 5290 2-in-1 (2* tb3 ports), everything works fine, power delivery, DP output 4K@60zh, HDMI output 4K@60hz, ethernet, extra tb3 port, all checked, it is a perfect dock if you want to a reliable TB3 connection.
However, in my scenario i also want to use it with my macbook pro, 2017, 15inch. the fact is, i can't get the 4k@60hz from its own DP/HDMI ports, i have to use USB-C to DP/HDMI cable to connect it through the tb3 port at front panel, otherwise i have to run at 4k@30hz@HIDPI OR (QHD@60hz but without HIDPI). i have tried to intall the latest firmware through its website but no luck, it's really bad but we cant blame lenovo. anyway they designed it to support its own laptops (windows), the macOS support will never on its roadmap. but still a bit shame.
Nov 2019, yesterday I updated the dock firmware to the latest 3164 version by a windows laptop, then switch back to macbook pro with macOS Catalina10.15.1, now I can get the 4k 60hz from the dock's dp. great work. the problem is, it looks the power supply of the dock are not sufficient for the macbook pro anymore. the battery of the macbook pro drained quickly after i connected the display to the dock's dp port. not sure if its firmware issue or i have too many payloads here. then i have to use the original power supply of the mbp to charge it. after did some research, i connected a secondary power adapter to its 230w port, now the dock is chargd by two power bricks and then it can charge the mbp again. all done now.
Bought it at used price but essentially a brand new product, also very well packed, thank you! Already have another model (40AC0135US) which works well. The difference is this one has 2 Display Ports and the other has 1 Display and 1 VGA ports, among several other ports for both models. With a DP-VGA adapter, this Dock can work with VGA as well. Due care must be exercised as the Thunderbolt port and USB C port are identical and incorrect placement of Thunderbolt cable into the USB C port will not work for multi-monitors. Thunderbolt port is the correct choice. And be sure to select the proper power supply port as there are two power ports.
I got this today and I'm in love. Everything is working seamlesly. I knew this was not listed to be fully compatible with my Lenovo Yoga C930, but I took the shot anyway since another reviewer mentioned the things that worked that did and didn't On my end, the only thing that I'm noticing that's not working is the power button. It has an amber light and doesn't do anything. However, I'm guessing this is due to the compatibility issue and there's not much that I can do about it. To be honest though? I couldn't care less about it. It finally allowed me to have everything connected in one place and only have one connection towards the laptop, so that I can easily move without issues. Moreover, I was having issues with the usb 2.0 in my laptop, and when I tried to connect my wireless mouse and keyboard to the cheaper USB C hubs I had there was too much lag. This dock solved the issue. The ethernet works perfectly, and so does everything else so far. So I would definitely recommend.
Using this with a Lenovo ThinkPad with the Thunderbolt connection. Everything works. Connected are 2monitors with HDMI, wireless keyboard, ethernet, and camera. I would never know that I was working on a laptop.
