If you have two displays that use any kind of mini-displayport adapter,or are HDMI or DVI or VGA, one of the two will not work and you must connect it directly to your Macbook (if you have an additional free thunderbolt connector). This partially defeats the purpose of this unit in such situations since you cannot do everything using one cable.
This needs to be made clearer and highlighted on the product description to avoid buying it by mistake like it happened to me.
Another important thing: also docks from the competitors suffer from this problem, so there is no solution yet if you want to connect two non-thunderbolt monitors to any dock.
Superb addition to my iMac set-up. Sure, when I upgrade the iMac, it will become pretty redundant - although perhaps not. It's still a useful hub, that via one TB cable from the computer can act take the wires away from the back of the iMac and distribute them from another part of the desk. That in itself is pretty handy.
Well, Thunderbolt has a few tricks up its fibre-optic sleeves, but you should also expect some compromises too.
Referring to the latter, I need not mention that a Thunderbolt cable isn't included with this Belkin Express Dock, meaning that if you want to get up and running out of the box, you will need to invest in the (pricey) cable just to connect the dock to your Mac. Although this is well advertised, it comes as something as a disappointment when you've already paid so much for this product; but there are genuine reasons with regards to licensing.
The dock itself is a beautiful piece of hardware, and is designed to look sleek next to any of the current generation Apple Mac's. Belkin are also self-congratulatory, reminding us that the dock was 'Designed in California... Assembled in China', a lá Apple's own backslapping. The aluminium casing is cool to touch and provides incredible durability to the device. It's also a lot smaller than the pictures suggest, so footspace is not a problem.
What you may be asking then is why you would purchase a dock, given that the Mac Mini, iMac and the upcoming Mac Pro all have a great selection of I/O built in. This is where Thunderbolt comes into its own, as you can 'daisy chain' devices onto each other all from the same specification. This allows the user to plug a wide range of peripherals into one seamless chain of Thunderbolt devices. Think of a line of people, all linking hands.Read more ›
I didn't need Thunderbolt 2, but the difference in cost between the two docks was made up by the Thunderbolt cable included in the Thunderbolt 2 dock.
It was less plug-and-play than I expected: The speaker connector needs to be selected in settings; The ethernet was fiddly, and needed another Location defined so as not to interfere with the settings for the internal port (I have wifi to the internet, with ethernet to internal network for NAS etc).
The monitor worked straight away, except when the mbp puts it into power saving. When I wiggle the mouse, the internal screen wakes up, but the external one doesn't. The internal flashes every few seconds, as if it can tell the external is there, but it doesn't wake the external screen. If I put the mbp to sleep and then wake it up, it goes back to the external screen ... most times.
The USB3 worked straight away, and connected an external disk.
When it all wakes up in the morning, it doesn't recognise the ethernet is connected, I need to unplug/plug the ethernet jack before it's recognised.
This morning, after it working fine for a week, it's stopped recognising my USB connections. I unplugged/plugged them a couple of times, but it didn't recover. I moved the plugs to the sockets on the mbp, and they work straight away.
All together it's just too much of a pain.
