4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but not great VFM...., 16 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
VALUE FOR MONEY - That clearly isn't your main concern if you're buying this beauty.

This item does what it says it does, and if you are in need of all those extra Thunderbolt slots it will perform brilliantly. Compared to my old USB 2.0 PC, the transfer speeds I get from this dock to my Mac is a revelation. It's basically 100mbps broadband compared to 56k dial-up. You'll never want to go back, and if you move multi-GB files around a lot, this will make your life soooo much easier.

However, first you need to get past that frankly EPIC price-tag. Then, you need to go get yourself a spare Thunderbolt cable as the greedy sods at Belkin didn't think to include one. These can be picked up relatively cheaply now (though still pricey compared to other computer cables), so the decision to not include one in the box is frankly baffling.

It doesn't actually give you any more thunderbolt ports, just gives you fire wire, ethernet audio and 3 USB ports.
