Connect a variety of Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, FireWire 800, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, and 3.5mm audio peripherals to your Mac system using the 12 Port Thunderbolt 2 Dock from OWC / Other World Computing. This dock contains 2 x Thunderbolt 2 (20 Gb/s) ports, 5 x USB 3.0 (5 Gb/s) ports, 1 x FireWire 800 (800 Mb/s) ports, 1 x HDMI 1.4b port, 1 x 3.5mm mic/line in port, and 1 x 3.5mm audio/line out port.
In addition to allowing device connectivity to be expanded beyond the limits of your system, this 12-port dock performs several other functions. For example, two of its USB 3.0 ports are equipped as high-power charging ports for devices such as smartphones, tablets, and virtually any device that may be charged via USB. The Thunderbolt 2 ports will allow up to five Thunderbolt devices to be daisy-chained together, plus a display. The FireWire 800 port will allow up to 63 devices to be daisy-chained together, while the Gigabit Ethernet port will provide a wired network connection to systems that lack an Ethernet port, such as a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro with Retina display. Additionally, the HDMI 1.4b port supports resolutions up to 4K/30 Hz, and there is DisplayPort 1.2 support for resolutions up to 4K/60 Hz. Lastly, the mic/line in and audio/line out ports will allow items such as microphones, headphones, speakers, and other 3.5mm-compatible accessories to be connected to your system.
The 12 Port Thunderbolt 2 Dock is compatible with any Thunderbolt-equipped Mac running OS X 10.9.5 or later. It operates using an included universal auto-switching 100-240 VAC power supply and also includes a 3.3' / 1.0m Thunderbolt cable.
