Review: StarTech Thunderbolt Docking Station

updated 03:42 pm EST, Thu February 27, 2014

Device brings three USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, more to Thunderbolt

Like USB before it, Thunderbolt is taking a path to ubiquity. Originally included on Apple's MacBook Pro series, the new interface technology is starting to show up on Windows computers, and even enthusiast motherboards. The only problem with a new common interface is the displacement of older ones. To fill this gap, many manufacturers are developing interface breakout boxes, including a variety of ports that a Thunderbolt-equipped computer may or may not have. StarTech has a one such entry, a docking station that includes three USB 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI, and audio in and out ports to Thunderbolt-equipped computers. Is StarTech's offering ideal? Check out our review to find out.
