    Belkin today announced the availability of the Thunderbolt Express Dock, a sleek, compact, cable-clutter-free dock for Mac computers with Thunderbolt ports. Belkin's Thunderbolt Express Dock is the only solution that is equipped with two Thunderbolt ports, allowing users to daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt high-speed devices while maintaining maximum throughput and granting instant access to multiple desktop devices with one cable. It maintains the portability of your laptop by eliminating the constant need to plug and unplug numerous desktop peripherals.

    Designed to be an easy and powerful way to increase productivity and take advantage of Thunderbolt technology, Belkin's Thunderbolt Express Dock allows creative professionals the ability to edit films in full HD 1080p, and transfer volumes of data in seconds at bidirectional 10Gbps channels. That is up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800.


    The Thunderbolt Express Dock uses a single high-speed connection to create ultrafast data transfers between your laptop and up to eight other devices, including FireWire, Ethernet, and USB, and enables users to daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt devices. The Dock provides a much-needed solution that creates a cleaner, faster, more productive workspace and reliable connectivity to desktop devices and the Internet.

    Belkin's Thunderbolt Express Dock is available now at belkin.com and will be available at select retailers nationwide at the end of the month.
