Finally, a Thunderbolt Dock Done Right
The OWC Thunderbolt Dock was designed to meet the fast–paced, critical needs of today’s filmmakers and content producer. It’s flexible to use, offers plenty of connectivity options and has the performance that keeps your workflow on–time, on–budget.
Nothing else even comes close. Even the price is right.
The unit’s elegant design just looks like it belongs with your production/post production system. The lightning–fast Thunderbolt Dock supports up to five Thunderbolt devices and a display. There’s no need to constantly connect and disconnect cables (which is really tough on the connectors) because OWC designed in the ports you’ll need for your workload – two Thunderbolt 2, 3 or C; five USB 3.0, one FireWire 800, one Gigabit Ethernet, one HDMI 1.5b with 4K display support, one 3.5mm audio input/mic and one 3.5mm audio output/headphone.
That’s right, a single Thunderbolt cable will let you connect all of those devices and still charge and sync your iPhone, iPad or other bus–supported devices.
It’s just the kind of content creation tool you’d expect from OWC and it’s backed by world class service and support.

Upgrade, Don’t Replace Your System
Your computer – notebook, ultrabook, desktop – is only a couple of years old; it works great but acts like its 100. Ask a retail clerk or friend who just stepped up to the latest and greatest and they’ll tell you it’s time to replace the old girl. But you have a limited budget and a big wishlist. The good news is it really doesn’t take much time or money to get the system back in shape.
You’d be surprised the difference adding RAM (Random Access Memory) will make. Then upgrade the spinning disk to SSD and hang onto your seat.
Yes, most manufacturers have those neat little warnings that say – “You replace the hard drive or do anything ‘under the hood’ and you have committed a warranty violation.” But if you look in the support area, they tell you exactly how to do it and consumer–protection laws supersede their warranty.
That’s right, you won’t void the warranty even though a year–old computer doesn’t really have a warranty. Because most people are afraid of opening their system to see the mass of technology inside, OWC has been taking the fear out of working on computers and other devices for more than 25 years.
Today, they offer a library of over 100 easy–to–follow how–to videos covering almost any subject, including swapping out the slow, noisy hard drive for super fast, super reliable SSD (Solid State Drive). An SSD is up to 92X times faster than a HD, provides up to 100X more data protection, significantly reduces the weight of your on–the–go computer, runs cooler and uses less power so you don’t have to constantly plug it in and charge it.
And, if you run into an issue/question while fixing/upgrading your Mac or PC, OWC customer support people are just a call or text away. They’ll give you all the time and assistance you need to get your system running even better, faster than new with some great savings.

All the Tools You Need
Just when you’re ready to work on your computer – Mac or PC, desktop or notebook – or actually, any of your devices; you have to run around collecting all of the tools you need or you “make do” with those you have.
What a waste of time and temper!
OWC knows you have the expertise to do the task yourself as long as you have the right tools, so the company developed a low–cost kit that makes the job easy, almost fun. It features a well– thought–out 14–piece portable tool kit with everything you need in one convenient nylon case that keeps everything in its place until you’re ready to go to work.
Yes, a place for everything and everything in its place including a pair of non–marring destructible nylon pry tools––spudgers, (and you’ll probably want extras) and a black nylon probe/stick for opening iDevices and other equipment that’s difficult to open but easy to scratch. It also includes tweezers, screwdrivers, torq tools … just about everything you need to tackle the job quickly and easily.
And, if you bump into a question mid–way through the project, don’t worry there are hundreds of how–to videos available on the OWC site that cover all of your questions. Or, if you need a friendly voice to guide you through the process, chat with one of the experts in our U.S.–based service/support team. They know, because they’ve been there … done that.
