  • Mini DisplayPort or HDMI video output
  • Dual monitor support when using HDMI + Thunderbolt Display
  • Gigabit Ethernet, Audio, 3x USB 3.0 ports with UASP, includes 1m Thunderbolt cable

The TBDOCKHDPBC Thunderbolt™ Docking Station gives you a single connection point to your home / office workstation, for a flexible setup with formidable speed. Adding Thunderbolt and HDMI video outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 3.0 hub and 3.5mm audio ports to your Thunderbolt-equipped laptop has never been easier.

Single Connection

Start working faster! The Thunderbolt dock reduces the hassle of connecting a typical laptop workstation by leaving your entire peripheral set connected to the dock. Through a single connection to your laptop (e.g. MacBook Pro®, MacBook Air® or Ultrabook™), you can be up-and-running in seconds.

Get connected right away with the included high-quality 1m Thunderbolt cable, saving you time and money.

Flexible Setup

Experience a tidy and customizable workspace with a small footprint and included optional stand, so you can place the Thunderbolt dock either horizontally or vertically.

Connect more of your USB peripherals through the integrated 3-port USB 3.0 controller. External USB 3.0 hard drives benefit from the smooth response and faster data transfer rates provided by UASP. Older USB peripherals aren't a problem either, with USB 2.0/1.1 backward-compatibility.

Formidable Speed

Increase your overall system performance with a dedicated controller for onboard I/O handling, freeing up system resources. With data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps, Thunderbolt technology simultaneously supports a high-resolution display and high-performance data devices through a single interface, plus you can daisy-chain up to 6 devices (Thunderbolt 1 and 2 compatible) for maximum connectivity.

Expand your screen real estate and increase productivity, using the integrated monitor outputs. With support for resolutions up to 1920x1080 (HDMI) and 2560x1440 (Thunderbolt / Mini DisplayPort), the dock provides several options to add external HD displays.

Backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Note: When using a single display, the dock lets you connect one HDMI, DisplayPort or Thunderbolt monitor. The Thunderbolt™ interface on the dock is backward compatible with Mini DisplayPort and when connected to a DisplayPort monitor, only a single display can be added as HDMI will be disabled. For dual display configurations, you can connect one HDMI monitor and one Thunderbolt monitor simultaneously.

Troubleshooting

Sometimes an on-board network interface card (NIC) conflicts with a new NIC.  In these cases it is best to disable the on-board NIC.

The best way to disable your on-board NIC is to go into your BIOS and disable it there if possible.  To do this, consult your motherboard manual.

You can also disable any NIC in Windows.  Here is how you do this:

First click Start, or, in Windows 10 and 8, hold down the Windows key and press X.  Then click Control Panel.

Windows 10

  1. Click Network and Internet.
  2. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  3. On the left, click Change adapter settings.
  4. Right-click the NIC that you would like to disable and select Disable.

Windows 8

  1. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  2. On the left, click Change adapter settings.
  3. Right-click the NIC that you would like to disable and select Disable.

Windows 7

  1. Click Network and Internet.
  2. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  3. On the left, click Change adapter settings.
  4. Right-click the NIC that you would like to disable and select Disable.

Windows Vista

  1. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  2. On the left, click Manage network connections.
  3. Right-click the NIC that you would like to disable and select Disable.

Windows XP

  1. Click Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the NIC that you would like to disable and select Disable.

How To

To confirm that Windows detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Press the Windows key+R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter.
  2. In Device Manager, under the appropriate heading, confirm that your expansion card is listed and that there isn't an exclamation mark next to it.  For example, a USB controller card would be under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Click the Apple icon.
  2. Click About This Mac.
  3. Click More Info or System Report.
  4. Under the appropriate heading, confirm that your USB device is listed and that there isn't an error. For example, a network card would be under Ethernet Cards.

You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device.  To do so, press Command R with the System Information page open.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.
