Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter video review

In this episode I give you a look at the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

As Apple has started making its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines thinner, there's no longer room in the bezel for an Ethernet port. The solution? The Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter. This allows you to take advantage of the much smaller Thunderbolt port, and use it to connect directly to a wired Ethernet network. I show you how it works.

You can pick up the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter now.

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.
