    As someone who used the Thunderbolt 1 dock, I cannot recommend this.

    We have had 11/17 units fail due to various reasons. (failed usb, failed ethernet, failed thunderbolt ports).

    We’ve since switched to the belkin thunderbolt 2 docks and they are much higher quality as well as have given no issues.

      How has the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 dock been working?

    • http://www.elgato.com/ Adam Steinberg

      I’m the VP of Marketing at Elgato and I’m sorry to hear about your
      unusual, bad experience. I checked with our technical support team and
      they are not aware of any customer with the cluster of issues you
      describe. In any case, the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock full warranty
      covers a fast replacement. Please contact me at adam (at) elgato (dot)
      com and I’ll walk you through the exchange process.

        Good job, Adam! I love seeing a vendor tackle customer satisfaction issues directly and transparently, as you have done. El Gato is definitely going on my list of companies I want to do business with.

    I looked into one of these a few weeks ago. The mono microphone input killed it for me. I’m not sure what they were thinking when they went mono mic instead of stereo line in for audio input. I guess it might be helpful for podcasters.

    I have an Elgato Thunderbolt 2, for a little over a month and it’s been working great. The only port I slightly miss are my old Firewire ports.
