Default Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock

Anybody had success with this dock? I'm running 12.5 on mid-2012 RetinaMBP i7 10.10.5(successfully for now). Searched forum and found some info on OWC and Belkin.

No I didn't. In the end I went with a Caldigit TS2 and have had no problems. I would of gone with OWC but there had been reports of connectivity issues at the time but this has since been addressed by OWC and fixed from what I know. The OWC seems to be the front runner once again and I'd buy that if I was looking at TB2 docks today.

I have two OWC Thunderbolt 2 docks and I bought the wife an OWC Thunderbolt 3 dock for her new iMac. They work flawlessly and the quality is undeniable. I hope yours works equally well!!

Now, if I could only talk her into my need for the new iMac Pro when they are released.

OWC Dock Owners: Insure you remove the protective plastic on the top and bottom! Doh!!!
An understand spouse, some mics, tube guitar amps, gray foam stuff stuck to the walls, a drum kit, a Mac or two, and an interface. A really understanding spouse!
