I know this isn't about Photoshop per se, but it does relate to the hardware for running Photoshop, Premier and all the external USB 3 Gen 2 and thunderbolt 3 devices we all use.

Like many of us, I'm running off a MacBook Pro, in my case a 2019 16". 4 Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C inputs and I have more devices than that to connect. Even where I can daisy chain Thundebolt 3, I just don't have enough inputs for the Thunderbolt devices I have nor the USB A or C, not to mention ethernet and external monitor, and I'm getting tired of buying hubs just to have them overheat, fail or just not provide the inputs I need and instead have lots of bloat ports such as SD ports. 

Does anyone have recommendations for a hub that will either give me at minimum 100W power through (MBP's require 100W) and ideally at least one additional Thunderbolt port, plus at least 2 USB A, 2-3 USB-C (3.2 Gen 2) and ideally Ethernet and either Mini Display or HDMI for an external monitor.

 

Many thanks!
