OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock: You Really Need This for your MacBook Pro


owc thunderbolt 2 dockDo you use your MacBook Pro all the time? Then I’m sure you’ve sometimes wished it had more ports available. How are you supposed to connect your external monitor, backup hard drives, cell phone and all the other devices you’ve got? Having to plug and unplug everything in turns can be quite frustrating.

That’s why you need to get yourself an OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock with 1M Thunderbolt Cable, 4K Support, Dual Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, HDMI, FW800, Ethernet. This docking station connects to your computer through the Thunderbolt port, which is Apple’s highest bandwidth port. Once plugged in, you’ll have access now to a FireWire800 port, a 4K-capable HDMI port, a mic jack, an additional Thunderbolt port, a Full-speed Gigabit Ethernet port, and five USB 3.0 ports.

That means that now you have access to ports that your Mac didn’t even have before, like the Ethernet and the FireWire ones! Thanks to Applès new design, where they tried to make their devices thinner, some useful ports had to be taken out, but now you can have them back with this dock.

Yes, having so many ports available might sound like if you would never use them all, but believe me, you will. Once you plug in your backup HD, external monitor, webcam, flash drive, USB speakers, iPhone and your iPad, you’ll quickly start to use them up.

There is no interference between the devices, so don’t worry, you won’t be getting any spots on your webcam transmission or any blurry lines on your monitor while you are using your external Hard Drive.

The Thunderbolt is simple as can be, all it needs is its power cable and Thunderbolt cable, which measures 1m and is included in your purchase. Since it is quite lightweight -13.6 ounces-  you can carry it around in your bag and use it in your office and at home.
