    About Thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch. Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

    When I purchased this dock, there was only one review that gave it five stars. I saw that other products had problems with power When I purchased this dock, there was only one review that gave it five stars. I saw that other products had problems with power to USBs, and this unit had high power ports. Also, other products complained about having to eject before shutdown, and the reviews on this product mentioned none of that. I went ahead and purchased the product and it solves all the problems that were mentioned about other products. You have powered USBs (can charge iPad, wireless headphones, etc. from port), you can hook up your wired ethernet no problem (despite a review to the contrary - I am getting a very strong signal through the wire). I am also able to use my headphones through the jack on the front. The solution to one of the reviews is that you to into system preferences and change the sound settings to use the dock for output/sound effects. Works perfectly. I am listening to headphones as I write.

    In summary, everything works as it is supposed to. The only complaint that I have is that it should have a firewire 800 input on the back. I still have firewire drives, as that was the best thing going before Thunderbolt and USB 3. I am not getting rid of my drives. The solution is that I have to plug two thunderbolt ports into my computer instead of one. That is also because I am using an older monitor that uses the mini port that's the same size as the Thunderbolt input. Overall, I am very happy, and I give this product 5 stars!!! Hopefully, those other users with problems will read this review and take the time to reconsider their ratings.

    Fired up both my Apple Cinema Display and my QNIX displays I use at work with no problems. Worked perfectly with the ioSafe drive Fired up both my Apple Cinema Display and my QNIX displays I use at work with no problems. Worked perfectly with the ioSafe drive I have attached for TimeMachine backups as well. No issues! Probably going to buy one for the home too. The finish matches my Mac perfectly. Didn't try the HDMI port yet.

    I just purchased this dock from a nearby Apple Store. When I plug speakers into the headphone port on the front -- which I normall I just purchased this dock from a nearby Apple Store. When I plug speakers into the headphone port on the front -- which I normally plug into my MacBook Pro's headphone jack -- I get no audio. I plan to contact the company to see what the issue might be. If I can't solve it, I will be returning the dock.
