Closer Look: Diamond DS3900 Docking Station
The Diamond DS3900 has so many different features, I think the best way to introduce it is to use a picture. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words:
As you can see above the Diamond Multimedia DS3900 provides a bucket load of connectivity. With a single USB 3.0 connection you are able to connect instantly to 4 x USB ports, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, Digital and HDMI monitors (DVI to VAG connector is included), an audio device, and you can even upgrade to gigabit Ethernet. I love my laptop, but it is so very nice to not have to have to go through the hassle of connecting cable after cable, and then leaving a mess behind when you leave.
As stated above the main connection to your laptop is through a USB 3.0 super speed connection. A USB 3.0 cable is included with the Diamond DS3900, but you will have to ensure that you have a compliant USB port on your machine for the maximum operating efficiency. Even if you do not have USB 3.0, your USB 2.0 port will work with full functionality just at a little slower pace.
When the DS3900 arrived I was impressed with size. As you can see it is about twice the height of a CD, which given the number of connections is about as small as Diamond Multimedia could have made it. The DS3900 is well made, with clean edges and is subtle enough to be overlooked, but has the good looks to attract attention when noticed.
