I found the Diamond DS3900 Ultra Dock to have an excellent but sleek design with a great build quality. With a durable housing, the unit as a whole was built to last and did not feel cheap at all. While this docking station isn’t meant to elevate the laptop to help with cooling and air intake, it really performed better then my docking station designed specifically for my laptop.
While the Ultra Dock does require drivers to be installed, it’s well worth considering and can also be used as a pseudo-KVM with a simple cable swap from one system to another. This product isn’t the newest technology (nor is it a new product), so I found the Diamond DS3900 Ultra Dock for $97.43 at provantage.com. It comes with a manufacturers warranty of one (1) year. Considering that it’s more than just a docking station and isn’t model specific this is a great buy. We present the Diamond DS3900 Ultra Dock with the PureOverclock Great Hardware award.
