Belkin Express Dock

Belkin has finally announced the release of its Thunderbolt Express Dock. Originally set for release in July 2012, Belkin's Thunderbolt Express Dock has seen multiple delays, but is now available to order beginning today. To refresh your memory, the Dock allows you to connect multiple peripheral to it, and then connect one Thunderbolt cable from the Dock to your Mac, giving you access to all of the devices connected to the dock. Here a list of all the ports that the Thunderbolt Dock sports:

  • 2 Thunderbolt ports (1 upstream, 1 downstream for daisy-chaining up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices)
  • 3 USB 3.0 ports (Belkin added USB 3.0 ports back in June 2012)
  • 1 FireWire 800 port
  • 1 Gigabit Ethernet port
  • 1 3.5mm audio-out port
  • 1 3.5mm audio-in port

In total, you get access to 8 different devices on your Mac by simple connecting on cable to a fully-stocked Thunderbolt Dock. Not bad at all. You can pick up the Thunderbolt Express Dock now for $299.99 by using the link below.

If you thought the Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock looked good before, wait until you hear about the pre-launch upgrades it's just picked up. It still packs in the dual Thunderbolt ports, FireWire 800, Gigabit Ethernet, and audio in and out. Now, though, it will also include an eSATA port, as well as three USB 3.0 ports as well. That new goodness comes with a higher price tag though, as the dock wil now cost $399 (rather than the previously-announced $299) at launch. It'll be available next month directly from Belkin.
