OWC Extends Warranty to 2 Years for Thunderbolt 2 Dock Owners
MPG received this today in email.
Classic win/win: customers get a longer warranty, OWC gets credit for going above and beyond. MPG sure wishes that Canon and Nikon and Sony would do the same for cameras and lenses!
See the MPG review of the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. It’s all but a must-have for MacBook Pro and iMac users, and excellent for Mac Pro too. The dock even passes through the video signal so a display can hang off it.
For the new 2015 Apple MacBook with USB-C, OWC is accepting pre-orders for the OWC USB-C Dock. Apple will likely switch all Macs to USB-C next year, along with a common connector that incorporates USB + Thunderbolt into one cable standard compatible with both.
The USB-C changeover will entail some hassles (adapter plugs), but simple things like charging a laptop via the cable will sidestep the anti-customer patented MagSafe connector headache (Apple produces no useful MagSafe functionality for on the road or battery use, nor does Apple alllow them to be made and sold, at best tolerating products that adapt to MagSafe).
