All computers have a limited number of ports, but sometimes this depends on the motherboard you’ve chosen, with some offering more ports than others. It can also depend on the computer manufacturer, like Apple where they pretty much removed all ports except for USB-C/Thunderbolt on their previous generation MacBooks.
If you own a Mac and want the flexibility of having more ports to connect your devices and peripherals, then you might be interested in checking out Belkin’s new Connect Pro Thunderbolt 4 Dock.
As the name suggests, this is a dock that connects to your computer’s Thunderbolt port. While Thunderbolt and USB-C share the same connector design, one of Thunderbolt’s advantages is that it offers faster transfer speeds. So if you work with many external drives and deal with large files, it might be a better choice compared to regular docks/hubs.
The Belkin Connect Pro Thunderbolt 4 Dock can support connections such as monitors, where it can support single displays with resolutions up to 8K or dual 4K displays. It also comes with 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports (1x upstream, 1x downstream), 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, one USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port, 2x USB-A 3.1 ports, 2x USB-A 2.0 ports, 1x SD Card 4.0 reader, 1x Gigabit Ethernet port, 1x 3.5mm audio combo port, a PD 3.0 port for up to 90W charging and even a Thunderbolt 4 cable.
However, Belkin’s Dock won’t come cheap as is priced at $400so it’s clearly aimed at professionals who may need the speeds and ports it offers.
