    Are there hubs that let me connect multiple Thunderbolt devices at once?
    I want to be able to connect an external hard drive and two monitors at once to my 15 inch retina MBP. It has two thunderbolt ports. Are there thunderbolt hubs that let me plug multiple thunderbolt devices into the same hub to connect them all to the MBP?

    I've not seen a hub - doesn't mean there isn't one.

    Don't the monitors have a TB out port to daisy chain?

    I have the CalDigit dock and it seems to work well, but I am only running one Monitor off of it at the moment.

    I'm considering buying one of these. Is it worth it? Does it make a squealing noise like some of the reviewers have pointed out?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I haven't had any problems or noise out of mine . . . so far works as advertised without any unpleasant surprises.

    Hmmmm.... might have to pick one of these up.

    I am working from home full time now. And I'm thinking about doing a setup with dual 23" monitors. Plus having the USB3 would be sweet as my MBP was the last generation model that didn't have them.

    Haven't used it to drive a 2nd Monitor yet, but I have two USB3 HDs permanently hooked to it, one for Media File Storage and the other for Backing Up.

    FWIW takes 1 1/2 hrs to clone 340GB to a USB3 HD.
