We are not on a “simple” USB Hub here, but this (dear) Elgato Thunderbolt Pro Dock is worth mentioning. My choice after buying a MacBook Pro to connect my beloved Dell 3 monitors.

It does not reach the quality level of the models presented below (you can also see it in the photo) but it represents an attractive solution for those who have little space and need both
