I did a lot of research recently on thunderbolt docks and since I had just recently bought an ASUS PB278Q to hook my rMBP up to at home, I was tired of plugging in all the cables. I was really disappointed with all of the drawbacks from the other manufactures docks. There wasn't a single dock that I saw that was a perfect fit for what I was looking for...until I saw this gem hidden down the list on Amazon. (I am baffled as to why this is not showing up further up the list)
I had purchased some products in the past from Elgato and was happy with the quality and design. I had no clue that they recently released a thunderbolt dock, so initially I was skeptical and figured they would have the same drawbacks as the other manufactures. This was completed wrong. The dock is easily the best one on the market currently.
Things I LOVE: 1. The dock is extremely small and light and had a great sleek aluminum outer shell. It blends in with my desk and hides nicely...
The price of this unit is exorbitantly high, but if you have a laptop with a thunderbolt cable this is invaluable. All Thunderbolt docks cost roughly the same amount.
I originally purchased it to use USB 3.0 on my MacBook Pro that only has USB 2.0 ports. However, I didn't realize how convenient it would be to connect my external monitor, hard disks, ethernet connection and headphones - all with only one cord. Compared to other docks the front facing USB port was the selling point for me.
There are a few issues/concerns: 1) Ports do not provide high power. You cannot charge an iPad with the USB. 2) Thunderbolt is an old standard. Thunderbolt 2 already exists, although I could not find any Thunderbolt 2 docks. The Sonnet Echo, which was supposed to come out this summer, is supposed to be a Thunderbolt 2 dock, but it seems like it will never come out. 3) USB 3.1 Type C connectors should be coming soon. This connector will essentially replace...
This is the fourth Elgato T'bolt Dock I've bought for office MacBook Air users. Pros: - Comes with T'bolt cable. - Good looking and well made. Cons: - At only 12" the T'bolt cable is too short to be useful. - Ungainly PC laptop-style power brick. - Pricey, but no more than other Thunderbolt products of its kind. Summary: Provides all the connectivity you need in one handy package.
