    No, it's because the only docking station ever produced that is worse is the TB15. Endless problems. Google it if you don't believe me.

    Best is too look up that info from Dell. If I recall correctly, the TB16 might have better multi monitor support, at least in theory. This of course depends on resolution as well and connection type.

    It does depend on your TB16 though. Mine has been perfect since I got it (~2 years ago). Only issue I had was a monitor validation issue in Windows that caused refresh rates higher than 120Hz to flicker incessantly. After cleaning my registry, the issue went away and it's been smooth sailing since with the TB16. Since I'm selling my XPS soonish though, I'll have to sell it as well. Don't pay a lot for one, and get one with a warranty so you can get replacements from Dell as needed.

    Well, I'd rather say the configuration decides how well it works. In a multi monitor configuration combined with frequent "hotplugs" it has been a nightmare, all which is gone with the new docking station. And if you Google it, you will see that I am far from the only one to have come to that conclusion. As an added bonus, you don't have to live with what might be the most irritating fan in computing history (and that's coming from someone who owns a laptop with a built in 1080 GPU and an overclocked CPU).

    I used to have two TB16s, now I have only one after having smashed one of them to pieces. Perhaps not my proudest moment in life but I would lie if I said I regretted it. And I am usually not someone who smashes things on purpose.

    Just ordered an XPS 15 7590 with i9 processor
    Will need to undervolt it but what is the best program/method lately? I've read there were some issues with sleep mode etc?
    Anyone can link me a good beginner guide please? Thx in advance!
    Would it be a good idea to reinstall W10 also . I will upgrade the ssd to an 2TB EVO 970 Plus and maybe I can copy the partition with True Image or is this not a good idea?

    What is the consensus/recommendation regarding graphics drivers for the XPS 7590 - stick with official Dell-approved drivers or use the latest reference drivers from Intel and Nvidia?
