    Comments about Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock B&H Kit with Thunderbolt Cable (Black, 3'):

    This cable is essential to connect the Express Dock with my computer. The iMac is a nice machine, but there are not as many ports as I could use. This cable allows me to use the dock, which allows me to hook up three USB 3 drives and also daisy chain the Thunderbolt to another device, so I did not have to sacrifice a port to gain the speed.
    Very nice.

    Comments about Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock B&H Kit with Thunderbolt Cable (Black, 3'):

    I use this Belkin dock with a 2011 Mac mini. Since the mini doesn't have USB 3.0, this is a reasonable solution for providing it as well as Firewire 800 which future Macs are unlikely to include. I'm finding the USB 3.0 ports on the dock to be about twice as fast as Firewire 800. I haven't tested the audio or ethernet ports since I have no use for them.

    The dock gets pretty hot when transferring lots of data but no hotter than the Mac itself. Be aware that the Mac mini WILL NOT boot from USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 drives attached to the dock. It WILL boot from attached Firewire or Thunderbolt drives. This is using OS X 10.9.4. I don't know if the USB booting problem is with the OS or with the dock itself.

    All in all, I'm satisfied with the purchase but glad I didn't pay the full suggested retail. For me the dock is only useful to boost the speed of attached USB 3.0 drives since my computer only has USB 2. Down the road I'm unlikely to need this device at all. So it was a bit pricey, considering. Others with MacBooks on the go might find it much more useful. I got the kit with included Thunderbolt cable for a reasonable deal.
