USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Docking Station Testimonial
is a great device for extending my PC's peripheral
use and because it's portable, my laptop has
also been extended. I was able to take the
USB 2.0 Docking Station with me to my clients
and use the devices that I otherwise couldn't
have without it. Once the drivers were installed,
it was as though I was running directly from
my PC when using my printer, PDA, or camera.
Although this was not shown I also used the
parallel, serial and LAN ports during my testing
of the docking station. It's quick and painless
during install and connection of my peripherals.
If you need to upload some digital pictures
and print them for your client on their machines,
or your stuck using
a 56K modem with no hi-speed cable modem yet,
this is the device to solve your expanding
get you out of a jam.
I highly recommend the USB 2.0 Docking Station
for the novice or professional with both portable
and expanding needs for the use of more peripheral
