Back in February, Belkin finally started accepting preorders for its much anticipated Thunderbolt Express Dock that was originally supposed to ship last September. Reports earlier this month noted that further delays meant the device would miss its new Q1 2013 launch date, but today Belkin has finally made things official announcing availability of the Thunderbolt Express Dock and posting the video above to its YouTube channel.

Belkin does have some competition now that it has waited to launch, including the popular Matrox Thunderbolt Docking station that we’ve been recommending and the new Sonnet Echo 15 Thunderbolt Dock. 

Belkin is selling the slightly reconfigured Thunderbolt Express Dock for $299.99 through Belkin.com. Retailers are expected to have stock by the end of April.
