Sonnet's Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock with DVD Drive enables you to connect any computer with a Thunderbolt port to your peripherals through a single Thunderbolt cable. Simply plug in your printer, keyboard, mouse, cable modem, cell phone, headphones, speakers, microphone, and other devices to the Echo dock with their supplied cables, and connect your computer to the dock with a Thunderbolt cable. When it's time to disconnect your computer, just unplug the Thunderbolt cable! The Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock with DVD Drive gives you plenty of interfaces to choose from, including USB 3.0, SATA and eSATA, FireWire 800, Gigabit Ethernet, 3.5 mm audio input, 3.5 mm audio output, and Thunderbolt. For your convenience, USB 3.0, audio input, and audio output ports are placed on both the front and back of the enclosure, so you can leave frequently used devices connected to the back, and devices you may need to disconnect more often, to the front.
If you've purchased a new computer lately, you may have noticed something's missing - an optical drive. Not to worry, the Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock with Blu-ray Drive has you covered - it includes a Blu-ray BD-ROM/8x DVDÂ±RW drive to load software, import CDs, burn CDs and DVD-ROMs, and play DVDs. The Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock with Blu-ray Drive even includes software that enables Blu-ray movie playback on your Mac computer or attached display. Do you need more storage capacity for use as your Mac computer's Time Machine drive, to back up your Mac's drive, or to store your media library? Install your own hard drive or SSD right in the dock! Sonnet designed the Echo 15 Thunderbolt with Blu-ray Drive dock with extra space, mounting hardware, and connectors for you to install a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA HDD (hard disk drive) or SSD (solid state drive).
