Sonnet Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock: Poetry in Practicality

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 4, 2013


So you bought a new Mac or Ultrabook in the last couple of years, but you’ve yet to plug anything into its Thunderbolt port. A company called Sonnet shows you what that little hole can do for you. Its Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock is essentially half of a computer, adding a plethora of ports and hardware through just a single cable.

The Echo 15 has four USB 3.0 ports, a FireWire 800 port, an Ethernet port, two sets of audio in and out ports, two eSata ports and two more Thunderbolt ports. Additionally, it comes with either a DVD drive or – wait for it Mac owners – a Blu-ray drive. Finally, it also has a drive bay that can fit a 2.5″ or 3.5″ HDD or SSD. You can supply your own or pay a premium to have Sonnet include a 2TB HDD with the Echo 15.

As you can see, it’s a good way of expanding your computer and with many Mac owners, even adding functionality in the form of the Blu-ray optical drive. Sonnet is already taking pre-orders for the Echo 15, with prices ranging from $400 to $550 (USD).
