    Default Diamond DS3900 Ultra Dock review

    Are you tired of continuously reconnecting cables to your laptop, but don't want to buy the specific docking station for your laptop? Or, perhaps you have multiple systems that you use daily. Personally, I run multiple systems from home and constantly switch between systems that require more then a remote desktop connection. Diamond Media has a solution for these scenarios. Introducing the DS3900 Docking station! Cconnected via a USB, the DS3900 allows you to keep your primary peripherals connected to the dock and switch over with a single cable swap.

    I could actually use this dock. Would make things easier on me.

    Good review Joe. To me this actually looks more as one multipurpose hub instead of universal laptop docking station (there is no place to actually dock your laptop), but in any way it's an very, very useful device.
    Always look beyond the limits...

    Thanks Smiki007,
    I had the same thoughts while they advertise it as a docking station, I seen it being more accurately advertised as a KVM hub, Can't really call it a switch but with the same characteristics and functionality. I do believe they got it right though as a universal docking station though, as laptop specific docking stations are only designed to allow certain laptops to connect while this one connects to any USB port.
