I was very excited when the Diamond Multimedia DS3900 was delivered because I had been anticipating the arrival since I requested the unit for review. Why? Well, I was looking to end the tangle of wires on my desk and easing the transition from mobile to static computing. What I was really looking forward was being able to attach one cable and then being connected to everything I require.
I have been using a docking station at work for many years, so this was not new to me. All my previous experience was with proprietary docking stations that had cost quite a lot to procure and were tied to a single product. Until now I had not been able to find a docking station for my personal computer that has a reasonable price, simple connectivity, and the promise to increase the effectiveness of my computer. And so that is why I was so excited to receive and be able to test the Diamond DS3900 docking station for Benchmark Reviews.
I would just like to add a word about Diamond Multimedia, which has been around since the 1980s. It is an American company that has a long history in specializing in producing multimedia technology. They have produced graphics cards, motherboards, modems, sound cards, MP3 players and docking stations. The Diamond DS3900 is the latest device offering a multitude of functionality for the laptop user. With history such as this it is a name you can put some trust into.
In this article Benchmark Reviews has made every effort to test each of the functions, singly and as a whole. To ensure that the Diamond Multimedia DS3900 is tested thoroughly it has have been used for work and while gaming and even let my children have a go at it. If you are looking at expanding the functionality of your laptop, please read on.
