F4U055WW Thunderbolt Express Dock
Introducing Thunderbolt™ Express Dock
Always coming and going with your laptop? Now one cable connection does everything you need!
Easy is Beautiful
With Thunderbolt™ Express Dock, all your drives, networking, and input and output devices connect to the eight ports on the back. It in turn connects to your laptop through one Thunderbolt™ port. In short, eight cables become one.
So take your laptop when you go, and bring it home when you return - and deal with only a single cable. It's the kind of convenience that connects you to a whole new world indeed.
Fast is Beautiful
Thunderbolt™ is a quantum leap forward. Suddenly everything is faster, easier, better. Thunderbolt™ moves data on two bidirectional 10Gbps channels. That's 20 times faster than USB 2.0, 12 times faster than FireWire 800. And it means an entire HD movie transfers in 30 seconds. A whole year of continuous music? 10 minutes! And thanks to the Belkin Thunderbolt™ Express Dock, life on your laptop is about to be very different. In a very good way.
Beautiful is Beautiful
We thought that a technology as brilliant and beautiful as Thunderbolt™ deserved a dock that not only performs at the highest level, but looks the part as well. So we designed the Thunderbolt™ Express Dock with an elegant, low profile. Simple is beautiful, and Thunderbolt™ Express Dock is a shining example.
Plug into Fast
Connect Thunderbolt™ devices and experience blazing fast data transfer speeds. The Belkin Thunderbolt™ Cable (not included) allows you to connect all your Thunderbolt™ peripherals and utilize the daisy chaining capabilities the technology affords.
The Belkin Thunderbolt™ Express Dock is an easy, powerful way to take advantage of Thunderbolt™ technology. The Thunderbolt™ Express Dock lets you use a single connection to create high-speed, reliable transfers between your laptop and up to eight other devices, including FireWire, Ethernet, USB and daisy chaining multiple Thunderbolt™ devices.
The Belkin Thunderbolt™ Cable is not included with the Belkin Thunderbolt™ Express Dock.
Plug into Beautiful
From computer screen to big screen, the Belkin Mini DisplayPort™ to HDMI adapter allows you to stream all of your favorite audio and video content from your laptop to your HDTV in FullHD. Connect your Belkin Thunderbolt™ Express Dock to your HDTV using this Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and a separate HDMI cable. (We can replace with any other adapter; choose one.)
NOTE: The Thunderbolt™ and Mini DisplayPort™ connectors look identical, but there is a difference. Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect your laptop to a monitor with Mini DisplayPort, but does not transfer data. Thunderbolt™ is backwards compatible with MiniDisplayPort, but adds blazingfast 10Gbps speeds, for connecting additional devices, such as hard drives, and another monitor or HDTV.
Belkin offers a variety of Mini ports
DisplayPort/Thunderbolt™ Adapters:
1. Mini DisplayPort™ to HDMI Cable
2. Mini DisplayPort™ to HDMI Adapter with HDMI Cable
3. Mini-DisplayPort™ to HDMI Adapter

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on a PC

Pros: Windows 8.1 can see the ports with no problem.
USB3 and Firewire work great

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Using with an Asus Motherboard and ThunderboltEx II card. I needed the firewire port, and decided to try this instead of a firewire PCIE card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for Macbook Air

Pros: Works flawlessly with my Mid 2013 Macbook Air and Mac OS 10.9.4

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Has a good Ethernet port and USB Hub.

Cons: Very disappointed that there isn't a MDP hub. While my monitor and external HD both accept MDP/Thunderbolt, they don't chain. I was looking for this device to allow me to connect both via MDP/Thunderbolt. With one goesinta and only one goesouta port, that ain't happening.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat addition for 2011 MacBook Pro 15"

Pros: This adds three USB 3.0 ports to 2011 MacBook Pro that otherwise only has USB 2.

Lots of connections, including 1 functional Thunderbolt (see cons), 3 USB 3.0, 1 Firewire 800, audio out, audio in, and gigabit ethernet. I use all but the ethernet and audio in.

At my office I keep my MacBook Pro 15" in a desk drawer and run it with the lid closed, connecting power, monitor, FireWire 800, 2 x USB2, and speaker cables. This Dock reduced my cable connections from 6 down to 2 making it very nice when I need to take the MBP on the go -- now I only have two cables to mess with instead of six. This is a huge pro for me and the main reason I bought the dock.

Cons: - Primary Con: This should have had 3-4 Thunderbolt ports instead of only two. The dock must connect via Thunderbolt leaving only one available TB port. Besides a display, I have two portable Thunderbolt drives that I would like to also connect, but with the external monitor connected I cannot connect any other Thunderbolt devices -- dumb!

- overprice at full retail; 50% off is where this thing should have started

Other Thoughts: Overall, great dock and worth the current price of 50% off retail. No way I would have paid $300 for this.

I bought this at a little higher, and then the price dropped even more. Newegg initially failed to honor their "iron egg guarantee" the first time I requested citing my match price to the jungle retailer was "lower than their cost." Low and behold 6 days later newegg is selling it for the same price and then decided they could price match when i had them over a barrel. Questionable ethics...

2 out of 5 eggsHot, inefficient

Pros: Provides USB 3.0 ports.
Video daisy chaining of thunderbolt.

Cons: Case runs hot when doing nothing but serving as a passthrough for video. Runs just as hot, continuously, as the Mac Mini it is attached to.

Will not allow monitor to sleep, even when computer is in power saving mode. This is while using an displayport-HDMI connector. Plugged into the Mac Mini, the display switches to power-saving mode normally.

Video can be glitchy when running 3D apps or full screen video, can get into a state where it flashes random color noise for 1-2 seconds at 10-20 second intervals. This is only at 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz on a Dell monitor, so not what may be considered very hard driving. Have tightened connections, etc, with no luck so far.

This is my experience so far.

Other Thoughts: After months of waiting between the product introduction and release, it is disappointing to have to deal with several video issues. I would not recommend this product unless you really need USB 3.0

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for any portable Mac!

Pros: Sexy design
2 Thunderbolt ports
3 Full power USB 3.0

Cons: No video out. I would have loved to have a fixes video out so I could use the thunderbolt daisy chain for my thunderbolt hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently using every port on this dock, allowing me to plug in a single thunderbolt cable at my desk, and keeping things nice and tidy. It has also added USB 3 to my 2011 MacBook, which is a huge plus for file transfers. I strongly recommend this quality product to any portable Mac owner, or any Mac owner that wants to add USB 3 to their available ports
