I purchased one of these Docks some time ago must my equipment has grown and I needed a second Dock. This is it. It has helped cutdown on the interconnect wiring. The first Dock was cheap to buy. The second was a bargain too.

Rating: 5/5 Does what I need it to do September 21, 2018 I have an iMac and a Thunderbolt display that are about a dozen feet apart (sit-down desk and standing desk). I use this only to connect the two devices because Thunderbolt spec cables are too short to reach between the two. I bought one of this same dock a bit over a year ago but it didn't survive when my previous 2011 iMac's logic board/video began to fail.

Rating: 5/5 Back up to speed! June 25, 2018 I have to admit I put off buying this dock due to the price. But I love my mid-2011 iMac, and have done everything else I could to keep it's performance up to my demands. With external peripheral drives for backup and storage, the USB 2 speeds on my iMac were just not cutting it. I now have much better speeds for backups and file saving, as well as enough extra ports for everything I will need for the remaining life of my iMac. I feel though, that it should have come with the cord needed to connect it to the computer.

Rating: 5/5 The speed is brilliant June 10, 2018 My original intention was to find a more efficient way to organize my hard drives. I connected 5 (five) external hard drives, for a total of 16 (sixteen) TB, to my 2012 non-retina MBP using the thunderbolt 2 dock.

WOW. It's like upgrading my MBP to a brand new machine with USB 3.1. It's a noticeable improvement, even with the max RAM (16GB) and a 500GB SSD.

I highly recommend this dock. I have no idea what the Thunderbolt 3 dock is like, but the Thunderbolt 2 dock is very impressive.

Rating: 5/5 Yes, a winner! May 14, 2018 I had my eye on the Dock for some time now. When my iMac 12,2 fried the logic board the capabilities of the Dock became very important. I have many devices on Firewire 800 and want to continue using these until such time as they fail. The Dock was a no brainer on setup and if I wasn't looking at it would not believe how integrated into my system it became. That HDMA port may be used next, I find even an iMac 27 I can use more real estate. I have nothing to say against the Dock and am overjoyed I finally am using one.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect "All-In-One" solution March 27, 2018 I recently had the need to assemble some components together and was short one Thunderbolt 2 port. Not only did this device afford me the much needed second TBolt port, but now I could plug my Firewire 800 and Samsung TV/monitor (HDMI) directly without the need for more adapters. I haven't yet taken advantage of the other ports, but I know I will. I'm VERY happy with this product.

Rating: 5/5 Unbox. Plug in. Forget. March 5, 2018 This is the sort of device I judge by how infrequently I have to think about it or do anything. The OWC 12 Port Thunderbolt 2 Dock passes the test with flying colors. My review summary pretty much says it all. I unboxed it. I plugged everything in. I got back to work. That's MY kind of tech solution.

Reviewer: MJCiNE Location: Los Angeles Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Something I should have gotten long ago March 5, 2018 Great expansion / hub for Thunderbolt2. The addition of a second port for chaining additional thunderbolt devices is invaluable. The hub really boosts my productivity and eliminates clutter. It also allows me to stop using Apple's clunky, dongle-like, FW800 to TB2 adapters. The housing is solidly constructed and not too big. I only wish I would have gotten one of these a while a ago. I feel like the price should be about 50% the current sale price, considering the pending obsolescence of the Thunderbolt 2 interface in favor of TB3 / USB C. Similar TB Hubs have consistently hovered in the $200-300 range they first became available 5-6 years ago. That said - it works great with my 2013 MBP. Recommend for any legacy TB2 Mac!

Rating: 5/5 The product is very wonderful February 18, 2018 This item is now to have two items. One is for Mac Pro, late 2013 and the other is for Mac Book Pro. The product is very wonderful. It has nothing to do with performance, I think that there is no need to stick a seal of caution to the product. This seal "Please remove plastic film" has a hard time to remove. I hope to show it in the instruction manual.

Rating: 5/5 Needed a larger, external monitor February 12, 2018 Editing audio on my MacBook Pro was getting hard on my eyes during extended sessions. With only one Thunderbolt port available, this dock was the ticket. The HDMI output on the dock feeds my 27” monitor, while the Thunderbolt port connects to my audio interface and the USB 3.0 ports connect to my control surface and midi controller. Works flawlessly, couldn’t be happier.

Rating: 5/5 Great Product January 4, 2018 My 2012 Retina MacBook Pro would drive my 4k tv but the refresh rate was very slow.

I would have purchased this earlier, but the price point was not good enough. But I needed it.

Rating: 5/5 Works well with 2017 iMac December 31, 2017 I bought the dock several years ago to use with my mdi-2011 iMac. I recently purchased a 2017 iMac and bought 2 Apple USB-C to thunderbolt 2 adapters to use with my existing thunderbolt 2 devices. I've got one hooked to a Seagate thunderbolt goflex adapter with a SSD installed. I boot from it. The other adapter goes to the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. From the dock I'm using 2 more Seagate goflex adapters (STAE129), one with another SSD installed and the other with a 2.5 inch hard drive, and a Buffalo ministation thunderbolt enclosure (HD-PATU3) with the hard drive removed and an SSD installed. These 3 thunderbolt 2 devices are daisy-chained from the one thunderbolt 2 dock connector. Out of the dock I also have 2 OWC firewire 800 enclosures connected. One with a Bluray drive installed and the other with a removable hard drive. The dock is also providing video to a 20 inch Samsung monitor connected via a HDMI to DVI adapter. The usb ports out of the doc are providing support to numerous usb devices. So far I've had no problems with this setup.

Rating: 5/5 Making life a little simpler & cleaner. November 1, 2017 I feel like I am going to hold on to my mid 2012 non retina until the day I die. I've hit the upper ceiling with internal HDD storage (2TB for my video library in the OPTIBAY). I knew I was going to need to go external soon since 4TB SSDs are still prohibitively expensive. I needed a way to hook up a solid external HDD while having an HDMI output and being able to hook up my Pioneer DDJ-SX controller for use with Serato DJ and Mix Emergency.

It was getting very crowded on the left side of my MacBook Pro and I started worrying about stuff getting tugged on or pulling out. The dock has remedied that and now I can just keep an eye on the single Thunderbolt connection running under my laptop stand.

So far no latency issues with my controller and the DJ software, video output has been great and I will be testing an external TB drive of 4TB or larger around the holidays this year (2017) as the sales pop up!
