Plugable USB-C Triple 4K Display Docking Station specs: Ports: USB-C (1), SD card reader (1), 3.5 microphone jack (1), 3.5 headphone jack, HDMI/DisplayPort - DisplayLink (2), HDMI/DisplayPort - Alt Mode (2), USB-A 3.0 (4), Gigabit Ethernet (1), USB-C with 100W Power Delivery (1) | Display: up to three simultaneous 4K resolution @ 60Hz displays
The Plugable USB-C Triple 4K Display Docking Station has a lot of similarities to UGREEN's Revodok 12-in-1. It supports a triple 4K monitor setup through its three DisplayPort outputs or three HDMI ports — your choice. Additionally, it can power your laptop up to 100W thanks to its DisplayLink connection.
Of course, we can't ignore the 13 ports present on the front and back of the docking station. It has four USB-A 3.0 ports much like the previous entry. Although, you could argue there are actually 16 ports if you count the headphone jack and the microphone input on the front as well as the rear power delivery output on the back.

What makes Plugable's docking station stand above UGREEN's model is its versatility. Not only can this device connect to macOS and Windows 11, but it also works with ChromeOS plus older versions of Windows like Windows 7. I tried it out myself very recently and was pleased to see that I was able to switch between the two systems with ease. If I ever decide to commit to one system (say, ChromeOS), I won't have to purchase another station. I keep this one and still enjoy the same performance.
Now there are caveats, like the fact it doesn't support 8K resolution and it is pretty pricey. In fact, it's the second most expensive entry on this list. Although I would argue it's worth the price tag considering what you're getting for a very reliable computer accessory.
