More thunderbolt ports!

PostSat Sep 08, 2012 12:33 am

Why do you keep shipping thunderbolt based products with only one port? It's a major pain in the ass.
I'm sure I'm not the only person who has had to connect and capture to FW800 based drives only because our MacMini;s sole thunderbolt port is gobbled up by our Ultrastudio 3D.
I do remember seeing an early version of the Ulstrastudio had 2 TB ports but ended up shipping with a single one - much to my disappointment. Please consider making it a priority to allow for daisy chaining of you TB based products.

Totally agree. I was exited when I started reading the announcement on the new UltraStudio 4k but then got a little disappointed when I looked at the picture of the rear connectors and saw only one Thunderbolt port. So far the only io box with two Thunderbolt ports is the AJA IO XT.

Yes I have one of those on my desk - so I guess the question is if Lacie can include 2 ports on a $150 eSata adaptor why can't Blackmagic do the same on a $995 Ultrastudio 3D?
