The TBDOCKHDPBC Thunderbolt Docking Station lets you add HD video outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 3.0 hub and audio connections to your Thunderbolt-equipped laptop (e.g. MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or Ultrabook). Leave your entire set of home office peripherals connected, and be up and running within seconds through a single Thunderbolt connection. For better overall system performance, the Thunderbolt dock employs a dedicated controller for onboard I/O handling, which frees up your system resources for other tasks. With data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps (twice the speed of USB 3.0), Thunderbolt technology simultaneously supports a high-resolution display and high-performance data devices through a single interface. Thunderbolt also allows you to daisy-chain up to 6 additional devices for maximum connectivity. Unlike some models available on the market, the StarTech.com docking station includes a high-quality 1m Thunderbolt cable, for a complete solution that saves you time and money. The integrated external monitor outputs provide several options to add large HD display support (HDMI, Thunderbolt / Mini DisplayPort), turning your laptop into a powerful home / office workstation. When connected to a Thunderbolt display, the HDMI port can be used simultaneously to add dual display capabilities through the dock. Support for HD resolutions up to 1920x1080 (HDMI) and 2560x1440 (Thunderbolt) helps you greatly increase your screen real estate for increased productivity. A small footprint and the included optional stand enables you to place the docking station either horizontally or vertically, depending on what best suits your workspace. Get connected to all of your USB peripherals with a built-in USB 3.0 controller, adding 3 extra USB 3.0 ports to your MacBook or Ultrabook. External USB 3.0 hard drives and SSD drives benefit from the smooth response and faster data transfer rates provided by UASP. Older USB peripherals aren't a problem either, with backward-compatibility for USB 2.0/1.1 devices.
