Works well But it can only drive one monitor at a time unless one is a Apple Thunderbolt Display.
If you have an older Cinema Display with mini Displayport it will work but the HDMI will not work or if you plug the HDMI cable in first the mini Displayport wont work. so first come is only one served.
CalDigit Support suggested I buy a second Thunderbolt station and plug the HDMI in one and the Thunderbolt/Mini Displayport on the other.
I actually got a USB3 to HDMI converter and plugged that into the Caldigit unit instead of using the built in port, that worked.

This dock was bought primarily to add gigabit ethernet and USB 3.0 support to a MacBook Air and, based on those requirements, it works like a charm. It's great to have a host of USB-connected peripherals, an external monitor and ethernet hooked up to my Air with a single Thunderbolt cable.

No additional drivers are needed for OS X 10.9 or later unless you need to rapid charge an iOS device or use a USB SuperDrive. USB 3.0 performance is excellent - it supports UASP and I've achieved over 250MB/s copying between the Air's internal SSD and an external one in a FirmTek enclosure. The HDMI and Thunderbolt outputs work fine, although I've only hooked them up to a 20" monitor. I've not tried the audio ports yet.

My only complaint is the same as that mentioned by a few others - the high pitched whine when the dock is in standby mode. I've gotten used to it now, but those with more sensitive ears may not be so forgiving. It's only because of the whine that I've knocked off a star - otherwise, it's a great product and highly recommended.

Reduced clutter from my Macbook Pro down to just one cable (and the charger). Works very well in both Mac and Windows. Only downsides which have been mentioned before is a whine coming from the unit when not in use and the lack of a Displayport 1.2 compatible thunderbolt connecter (although apparently this is a limitation of thunderbolt 1 which this uses) This means that unless your MacBook or other laptop/computer has a second thunderbolt 2 port it will limit you to maximum 4K at 30Hz (from my testing anyway).

Unit itself is very well built using what I assume to be aluminium and should look in place next to MacBooks and iMacs.

It would also be nice if this could be made a little cheaper. It feels a bit expensive for what it is with its older thunderbolt 1 technology but it seems all thunderbolt devices have a price premium right now.

This works but does not provide the completely stable platform I was hoping for. Sometimes USB devices plugged into it are seen by my MBP but don't fully function (i.e. TomTom starts to charge but won't be seen by the TomTom software, same with cameras and Kindles). I've not really worked out the link between those that don't work but I suspect it's where they pretend to be network devices over the USB to connect to their software agents.

I have a macbook pro with a thunderbolt port but no usb 3. I bought this with a view to using usb3 drives. It works a treat. Its quick and effective. There are enough ports including HDMI enabling me to just attach it and power to my macbook so I can work on a 24in display on the desk.

does exactly what the description says it does. No issue at all. The power adaptor is a bit big, but apart from that perfect.

Seems to work ok. I tend to grade these things by how much I *don't* think about them. If I can ignore it then it's probably working.
Don't get any high pitched noise as other reviewers.
