Belkin announced Tuesday it's started shipping its Thunderbolt breakout box. The Thunderbolt Express Dock connects up to 8 external devices to your Mac via a Thunderbolt cable. This can be ideal for portable computers to quickly dock to multiple devices on your desk. Also pretty handy now that Apple's computers seem to be trending to fewer ports and drives.
The Thunderbolt Express Dock is equipped with two Thunderbolt ports which supports daisy chaining up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices. Also 3 USB 3.0 ports, a FireWire 800, Gb Ethernet and an audio I/O.
The Express Dock should make it's way to retailers within a month and sells for $299.99
