When it comes to accessorizing your MacBook Pro or iMac, there are plenty of accessories out there in the market for you to choose from. However, it is all too easy to be spoilt for choice, so if you are working with a limited budget, it would be far wiser to choose your battle, so to speak. Belkin has long been a trusted name when it comes to rolling out accessories for the computing workspace, and this time around it is no different, either, with the availability of the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD.
The Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD is best described to be a single cable all-in-one docking solution, where it claims to offer 40 Gbps data transfer rates, dual 4K video support and 85 Watts of power delivery. In other words, this is the total single-cable docking solution that one would ever need, at least for the moment, in order to enjoy connectivity as well as power to the updated MacBook Pro or iMac. Just what kind of features does the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD come ith?
For starters, you will be able to daisy-chain up to five Thunderbolt devices from the dock, now how about that? In terms of Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, there will be two of those, which will certainly come in handy. If you have plenty of USB 3.0 devices and accessories, the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD is able to welcome three of those thanks to a trio of USB-A 3.0 ports that also offer 1.5A charging each. To round it all off, the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD will also carry a single DisplayPort, one Audio In/Out port, one Audio Out port, and one Gigabit Ethernet port. It will be accompanied by a 170W power adapter that delivers enough power to support attached peripherals, all the while channeling 85W of power to your computer via included Thunderbolt 3 cable.
It might be rather pricey at first glance, but the Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD’s $349 price tag will certainly pay dividends many times over.
