The Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 with DVD+RW drive from Sonnet enables you to connect any computer with a Thunderbolt port to your peripherals through an optional Thunderbolt cable. Simply plug in your printer, keyboard, mouse, cable modem, cell phone, headphones, speakers, microphone, and other devices to the Echo dock with your cables and connect your computer to the dock with the Thunderbolt cable. When it's time to disconnect your computer, just unplug the Thunderbolt cable.
The dock gives you plenty of interfaces to choose from including USB 3.0, SATA and eSATA, FireWire 800, Gigabit Ethernet, 3.5 mm audio input, 3.5 mm audio output, and Thunderbolt. For your convenience, USB 3.0, audio input, and audio output ports are placed on both the front and back of the enclosure so you can leave frequently used devices connected to the back and devices you may need to disconnect more often to the front.
The Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock includes an 8x DVD±RW drive to load software, import CDs, burn CDs and DVD-ROMs, and play DVDs. You can also install your old hard drive or SSD right in the dock. Sonnet designed the Echo 15 Thunderbolt with a DVD drive as well as extra space, mounting hardware, and connectors for you to install a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA HDD (hard disk drive) or SSD (solid state drive).

It provides multiple interfaces like Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, SATA, eSATA, FireWire 800, and Gigabit Ethernet
It supports Internal Hard Drive or SSD Installation so you can install a 2.5" or 3.5" 6 Gb/s SATA drive inside the dock
