    Thunderbolt 2

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to 4K display. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

      Gigabit Ethernet Intermittent

      The big selling point for this item is that you only have to connect one cable to "dock". However, the gigabit ethernet port would very rarely re-connect. Somet The big selling point for this item is that you only have to connect one cable to "dock". However, the gigabit ethernet port would very rarely re-connect. Sometimes "re-docking" would work, other times I would have to fumble round the back of the dock and remove & reconnect the ethernet cable. Although a nice little package, the poor functionality from the Gigabit Ethernet port is a let down.

      Intermitent external monitor use

      When i connect Elgato with an external monitor on my MacBook Air, the screen flickers between internal screen only and internal screen + external monitor, BUT d When i connect Elgato with an external monitor on my MacBook Air, the screen flickers between internal screen only and internal screen + external monitor, BUT doesn't activate the external monitor, repeating the process. The only way to connect it is with luck, and praying (and some reboots in between). This problem looks to be driven by the fact that Elgato is "declaring" the monitor present, even it it is turned off, confusing Apple drivers and making the external screen activation very tricky.
