Elgato Thunderbolt Dock plugs everything into your Mac with one wire
There's a growing selection of Thunderbolt docks on the market, and now you can add Elgato to the mix. The aptly-named Elgato Thunderbolt Dock serves to connect more of your things quickly and easily. The dock has two Thunderbolt ports (one for connecting to your computer and another for whatever other Thunderbolt device you'd like to connect and then daisy chain), three USB 3.0 ports, and one each HDMI, ethernet RJ45, 3.5mm microphone input, and 3.5mm audio output — all so you can connect displays, hard drives, input devices, and more all with one plug.
At $229.95 the Elgato Thunderbolt Dock isn't cheap, but then again we've yet to see a Thunderbolt dock that would fall easily into the range of "affordable". This offering from Elgato is comparable feature-wise to the Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock and the CalDigital Thunderbolt Station (though Elgato's has one more USB port), but it also costs more than both.
And it's worth noting that the Elgato Thunderbolt Dock is using the first-generation 10Gbps Thunderbolt, not the second-generation 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2. That's disappointing, considering that Thunderbolt 2 was announced back in June 2013 and devices have been shipping on Macs since October.
