Diamond DS3900 Detailed Features
Let’s have a closer look at the Diamond Multimedia DS 3900. Below you can see one side of the docking station. The layout, from top to bottom are:
4 x USB 2.0 ports
- 2 x USB 3.0 ports
gigabit Ethernet port
USB 3.0 input port,
Power port, and
Locking Device port
It is worth noting that the Diamond DS3900 supports, IEEE 802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab, IPv4/IPv6 and full duplex operation with IEEE 802.3x flow control.
On the reverse side of the DS3900 you will find the USB 3.0 input ports. I like the idea of having the USB 3.0 ports separated from the USB 2.0. First it makes it easier to identify the 3.0 ports, and second it reduces the line clutter by splitting them up. Just above the USB 3.0 ports is the Audio output.
Of course the best feature of all is with one connection, like this…
…You can have this kind of connectivity. I will be providing more detail on how well the DS3900 performed, but in general the unit was easy to use and performed very well.
