    A warm welcome to Mac-Forums.

    As you're using a Mac from the 22nd century, we're unlikely to find anything suitable

    On a serious note: depends on your budget, obviously.

    I have a Thunderbolt 2 Dock from OWC.

    Probably still available, but the latest version is a 14 Port OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock - details here:

    But a quick scan through Amazon or OWC (MacSales) websites bring up a lot of options.

    I would just add that you get what you pay for and that you will want an independently powered Dock.

    When you are connecting your Mac to most Monitors, it is by the method shown on their website to which I linked you. That is, via Thunderbolt 2 or 3.

    As far as I can see, this applies to most Docks available for the Mac. I don't personally need another monitor, having a 27 inch iMac; but many of our members are using one or more monitors in the way I mentioned.

    Just for interest, I came across this review of Docks for the Mac: https://www.imore.com/best-docking-stations-macbook-pro

    I still think the OWC is one of the best, but there are others.

    My experience with OWC is if they tell you it will work with your Mac you can pretty much take it to the bank. Been buying from them for a long time and they have not led me wrong yet. Go on their website and chat with the sales department and you will get the scoop from the horses mouth.
