Just what I needed
This review is from: Matrox DS1/HDMI Thunderbolt Docking Station for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air
Pros: Everything I needed, perfect for my setup.
Cons: Should've put the thunderbolt and USB3 port on the back instead of the front. A bit too expensive for the features, especially compared to the Belkin dock.
Other Thoughts: This dock was exactly what I needed. I got rid of my iMac and upgraded the heck out of my Macbook Pro to compensate. I had two USB2 HDDs, one USB3 HDD, and a 23" HDMI display that I needed to connect to my 15" Early 2011 Macbook Pro. Everything works just fine. Plug in the single Thunderbolt cable and all the drives mount and the external display turns on without issue. Closing the laptop with everything powered on puts the Macbook into "Clamshell" mode without issue. The USB2 ports are powered so it will power and USB powered drives. I don't really need the ethernet or audio ports as I use WiFi for networking and an Apogee Duet 2 for audio.
