Sonnet Echo 15 overview

  • 1Description

The Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 with Blu-ray Player 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 a Blu-ray BD-ROM/8x DVD±RW drive to load software, import CDs, burn CDs and DVD-ROMs, and play DVD and Blu-ray movies. The Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock with Blu-ray Drive even includes software that enables Blu-ray movie playback on your Mac computer or attached display. You can also install your old hard drive or SSD right in the dock. Sonnet designed the Echo 15 Thunderbolt with a Blu-ray 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).

    Sonnet Echo 15 reviews

    Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 with Blu-ray Player is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product Seems solidly built but a little old school clunky mechanically. Seems to be dozens of little screws with 4 or 5 different sizes that need to be removed just to install an internal drive. It is not hard to do, but could have been easier. Its nice that a T8 torx wrench for the front panel screws is provided. It has a fan that is temperature controlled but runs constantly. It is noisier than I'd like. I may have to replace it with something quieter. SSDs seem to perform a little better installed in the Sonnet than a recent OWC mini Thunderbay enclosure. Black Magic is showing 361MB/s writes to a 1TB Samsung 840 pro vs 334 MB/s in the OWC enclosure, reads are about the same. Sleep/wake and shutdown seem to be seamless. For those that want to unplug and go, an applet provides a one touch eject all drives attached to the box, including those within a downstream TB enclosure. It charges iOS devices (including iPads) when the mac is sleeping or disconnected but, of course, the Mac wakes up when you unplug or plug in the iOS USB cable. Firewire works fine The BR/DVD drive is much speedier than the USB drives I've used. I have a data application that accesses the drive often, and the responsiveness is a welcome improvement. Also flipping through movie DVD menus is much quicker as well as FF actions. The audio does not pop on sleep or shutdown like some well known docks do. Plugging a audio device (analog or optical) into the front shuts off the rear audio output. If you are starting from scratch and need a TB dock with a wide variety of interfaces and a two bay drive enclosure, the Echo package may save you a few $$.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Jury is Out I got my first one 6 months ago, the one with the plain optical drive. Aside from the time-consuming installation process for the hard drive, it has been functional and I was fairly happy with it. I get many USB Devices Disabled messages with it, but I learned to live with that. The drive eventually started acting up and I'm still not sure it was the drive or the dock, but I unhooked it and planned to use it for another setup, then I ordered another dock, this time with the read-only blu-ray optical drive. When I got it, one of the screws in the top was stripped - not the top of the screw, but the threads. I was unable to get it out in order to install the hard drive. After spending a good deal of time, I contacted Sonnet and they were not really helpful, telling me to return it to B&H. I went back to work wth a tweezers and finally got it out, again installed a hard drive, which again took a good deal of time. All seemed well. Until today. Today, for the first time, I went to put a CD in the drive. It did not mount. This CD mounts in every other machine I own. I then went to put a DVD into it. After I re-started the computer, it finally mounted, but only that one time. I tried calling Sonnet, but they sent me to voicemail after putting me on hold for a long time. They were too busy. I then wrote them an email and will see what they say, which is why I say the jury is out. I have already spent way too much time on this product. I have generally been satisfied with their other products, and I have owned more than a few, but this one is trying my patience. I don't think I would buy one of these again.
