This TS3 Plus is pretty slick. My office computer at work is inside the side of my desk, to keep desktop clutter down, but then it needs to have 6-8 cables coming out of the back of the desk. One of these could reduce it to 1 or 2 and have the dock on the desk to break everything out. I'd need a 2M cable, but it sounds like you've been using one yourself. According to CalDigit, it just needs to be 40Gb/s and 100w, which looks to cost about $60-65. Not exactly cheap, but an elegant option.
John, I am coming back to talk to you about cables. You mentioned specific cables and what they would cost to drive both those displays with a single connection.
What do you think of these?

And if I need to go with something longer in length this is not much more expensive
