Size: HDMI/Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPortColor: Black & silver Verified Purchase
So I purchased this dock last week after the recent purchase of a new 13" Macbook Pro Retina. It's really nice to be able to hook up the one (included) Thunderbolt cable and get sound, wired internet, looped TB output to a monitor, and two of my USB devices all hooked up in that one shot.

With that noted, it drives me crazy that the dock doesn't fully work when my laptop comes out of sleep mode. I do get video output through the TB output of it, but no wired ethernet or sound from the headphone jack *unless* I unplug the Thunderbolt cable from the laptop and plug it back in, then everything works again.

If this issue got fixed, I would give this 5 stars in a heart beat

Had planned on using this for dual monitors, one from thunderbolt, one from HDMI. When I attempted to use it this way, the HDMI did not allow the thunderbolt port to accept DVI or VGA adapters. Called Startech and they confirmed. Was disappointed because if there are limits on use of a port that should be noted. Otherwise the station was easy to use and seemed to work well.

I've been waiting for the CalDigit version of a thunderbolt hub since 2013 CES (for over a year) so I opted for this one from Startech since the reviews were primarily good.

Right out of the box I plugged it in, connected the cables and then connected it to my Macbook Pro and it started working.
No issues at all.
I recommend that users of Apple products get to this point and stop, let it "just work".
I'm in the IT business but do not work professionally with Apple products. But I decided I should check if there were a newer driver or some type of software update for this device. There was one on the startech.com website for Windows and for Mac. So I downloaded it, and installed it. WARNING!!!! From the moment the software was installed I could no longer connect to any Network port, not the one in the startech unit, not the one built into the Macbook Pro, not the wifi. Nothing.
Recovery: The only way I could recover was to hold down Cmd+R while powering up and boot into Recovery mode. Then I pulled down the operating system from the Internet--while in this mode, the computer does not use the installed network drivers so the internet connection was live for recovery mode. It too about an hour but when I re-booted, it came right up and the StarTech unit works again. I will continue to use it as is, and not upgrade its software.
WHY DID I TRY TO UPGRADE? I updated the software because the Thunderbolt port is being used to connect to the StarTech and then to an external disk drive. I use HDMI for my display. The Drive's access speed while connected through the StarTech is horribly SLOW. So much so that I thought something was wrong with it, so I updated the its software and, well, you know that story.

I've got a 2011 MacBook Pro and for years I've wanted to add reliable USB 3.0 to it so I could use the wealth of current generation storage devices. Each device I tried (using the ExpressCard slot) was unreliable and you had to do backflips to find a driver on Chinese web sites and hope that they would work... only to find them either corrupt your data or stop working entirely when a new OSX update rolled out.

This device uses the same chipset that is inside the current generation Macs, so if you use the latest OSX, it does not require any drivers.

Two more advantages:

1. Thunderbolt pass-through... For me this is HUGE deal, because my MacBook only has one Thunderbolt port, and no HDMI port, so my monitor is in the Thunderbolt port and it needs to be at the end of the chain... plus I have some Thunderbolt drives that do not have pass-through... essentially preventing me from using the drives and my monitor at the same time.

2. HDMI... Some Thunderbolt docks don't have HDMI ports, so even though they have pass-through, you still lose the port if you are using it for a monitor.

3. This device has 3 USB 3.0 ports. Some docks only have one.

4. Gigabit Ethernet port. For laptop users, this is a big deal. It lets you plug your LAN directly to the dock so you don't have to keep it tethered to the MacBook. This not only saves wear and tear on the plug, but it essentially lets you have just one cable coming from the dock to the MacBook. As a bonus, you can address the Ethernet port as a second port if you want to connect to more than one network.

5. The Thunderbolt cable is INCLUDED. This may not sound like a big deal, but Thunderbolt cables are expensive. I was happily surprised to see that they included one in the box.

I use this dock with a Mac rMBP, OS 10.9.4, LaCie Big 5, and a LG display port monitor. Performance is impressive, matches or exceeds the rMBP USB3 port. The dock gets warm near the top, but not hot. I have it mounted on the end similar to the photo, and the base provided is nicely weighted.

When this dock is first in the TB chain, followed by the LaCie disk enclosure, followed by the display port monitor everything seems to work fine. Mix things up and there are sleep issues. Documentation and on line info clearly identify monitor support, where before it may have not been obvious to the casual user. It will support two monitors but only if one is a thunderbolt monitor and the other HDMI.

I need more than 3 USB ports, so I plugged my old pluggable brand 7 port USB 3 hub into one of the Startech ports and everything seems to work fine. I have a USB3 disk enclosure on both the Startech and one of the Hub and disk benchmarks are near the same as before (USB Hub connected to rMBP USB port). I have a portable USB3 SSD connected to the third Startech port and the dock powers it nicely. My other drives are self powered.

Typically a USB3 chipset will have 4 ports and so does the one Startech uses, but one of the ports is used for audio. To the rMBP it looks like a USB audio device. I'd rather have another USB port, but then is is nice to be able to control volume from the keyboard.

It has a quality look an fell, and comes with a TB cable as well as three different AC power cables. The TB cable is a little short but the power cables are much longer than the usual. Makes no sound. When waking or powering up, there is a little pop from the audio amp I have plugged in. A pop is to be expected expected, but its much smaller than others.. not obtrusive. The power supply brick is almost as large as the dock and stays relatively cool.

Hopefully this will be a durable product, so far so good.
