If one were to go off of Amazon reviews alone, it would be pretty easy to see that Belkin’s pricey Thunderbolt Express Dock is a dud. A very expensive $300 dud. Out of the box, the Thunderbolt Express Dock seems to not work at all, with more than one person reporting that some ports don’t work at all while others don’t quite have full functionality (iTunes doesn’t recognize iPhones through this device).

On top of that, this looks like a terrible way to connect powered drives as the dock seems to cut transfers mid-way.

I was thinking about trying this out, but now I’m pretty sure I won’t.
