Digital Camera World Verdict

The Belkin USB-C Dual Display Dock is designed for users who have two HD displays that they want to connect to their laptop. This is achieved through two HDMI ports but is unfortunately limited to HD rather than 4K. USB-A ports are 3.1 Gen 1 so data transfer speeds are up to 5Gbps. With emerging Thunderbolt and even USB 3.2 Gen 2 x 2 technology, these speeds fall woefully short of what many will now expect. The case is made of plastic so doesn't feel particularly premium but benefits from a nice compact design.
