Reader Comment: Thunderbolt 3 Crash with High Sierra

Mac wish listall 15" Apple MacBook Pro 2017 modelsMPG gets credit if you buy through those links.
MPG tested a fully-loaded 2017 MacBook Pro with 1TB SSD.
Suggested accessories include the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock, the 1TB Envoy Pro EX.

I’m a long time reader of your site and have found your blog and ordering links quite helpful over the years.

Just curious if any of your other readers have been having a lot of stability problems with OSX 10.13 and 10.13.1 with there Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro.

Any time I have one of my Thunderbolt 3 raids connected I get a full system crash.

MPG: MPG has not heard of this one, but it does not sound surprising. Could be the specific unit involved perhaps.

For the first time ever, I have upgraded none of my machines to the current macOS, since they all must function properly with new bugs and crashes.

As discussed, MPG strongly advises to not upgrade to High Sierra until at least 3 months pass from its release, preferably 6 months. Apple has been shoveling out whatever manure is ready when the scheduled date arrives—it’s all driven by calendar dates, not not by quality metrics.

See also the following. Certain things might now be fixed, the point is the negligence of macOS releases foisted on the public by ship dates of the iPhone:
