Belkin has announced the availability of the Thunderbolt Express Dock, a sleek, compact, cable-clutter-free dock for Mac computers with Thunderbolt ports. Belkin’s Thunderbolt Express Dock is the only device on the market that is equipped with two Thunderbolt ports, allowing users to daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt high-speed devices while maintaining maximum throughput and granting instant access to multiple desktop devices with one cable.
Priced at $299, the Belkin Thunderbolt Express is a powerful tool for Mac aficionados who want to increase productivity. Thunderbolt technology runs 20 times faster than current USB 2.0. By connecting a single Thunderbolt cable from your Mac to the dock, the Thunderbolt Express Dock allows you to connect a multitude of peripherals via the dock’s three USB 3.0 ports and one FireWire 800 port. There is also a single Gigabit Ethernet port, as well as audio in and out ports. The dock’s second Thunderbolt port gives you the ability to add up to five more Thunderbolt devices to the dock by daisy chaining them together.
The Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock is compatible with all recent Macs equipped with Thunderbolt ports, including the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
