Adding a Monitor Using the Diamond DS3900V2 – Docking Station

This week we’ll be looking at a cool and easy way to have instant access to not only external devices and peripherals, but the all-important extra dual-video monitor. Why not use a docking station such as the Diamond DS3900V2? It’s your desk – simplified.

With the use of a single USB cable hooked up to your main PC, laptop or tablet, you can have everything set up just the way you like it and working or surfing the internet becomes a breeze.

Ultimately, your goal is to have a desktop that practically takes care of itself. That means making your life easier. The Diamond DS3900V2 Docking Station lets you keep everything on your desk untouched by simply leaving them plugged in – and that includes extra monitors.

You can enjoy Dual-Video by connecting extra monitors via the ports that come on the DS3900V2, such as HDMI, DVI and VGA, all in 1080P resolution.

Again, the DS3900V2 Docking Station can be used for all sorts of peripherals, including printers, camcorders, external disc drives, speakers, microphones, headphones, keyboards and mice. There’s even an Ethernet port for your network connection.

When you come into your office with your laptop and you do not have a docking station, you have to plug in your mouse, external keyboard, speakers and all of your other peripherals individually, every single time. What a hassle. If you don’t remember which device was plugged into your laptop there is a good chance drivers will be installed each time. Using your laptop at home you’ll encounter the same problem. You have to reconnect your printer, mouse, keyboard, etc and again if you don’t plug them into the same port each time you will have the problem with drivers reinstalling. With the dock there are no problems. You simply plug the dock into the same port and no drivers will be installed.

The DS3900V2 also prolongs the life of your PC’s USB ports. Rather than using all of your computer’s USB ports you only have to use one.

So if you’re looking for a way to keep all your stuff, including that extra monitor, permanently hooked up to your PC, take a look at the DS3900V2 by Diamond Multimedia. I think you’ll be amazed at how many things can be connected.

Diamond’s BVU Multi Display Adapters – A Buying Guide

Whether I’m working at the office or just surfing the web at home, a multi-display adapter can be an integral part of everyday life, so I need something that won’t get too much in the way of all my other desktop peripherals.

It’s important for me to find a solid, reliable, high-quality adapter. At the same time it needs to be small, compact and easy-to-use, as I need it to be mobile. But most of all, it needs to be reasonably priced and come from a reputable company.

My choice would be the Diamond line of BVU Multi-Display Adapters which come in five different models, all with different connection capabilities. Let’s take a look at each one:

If you want something you won’t have to upgrade for awhile, the BVU5500 is the best choice. The Diamond BVU5500 is designed to work with 4K monitors, so if you want your displays at the absolute, highest resolution, you most certainly want the BVU5500.

The maximum resolution capability is a staggering 3840 x 2160 pixels. The BVU5500 model supports HDMI audio and comes with an onboard Display Port. It can also support HDMI, DVI and VGA connections using an adapter.

The next level of Multi-Display Adapters from Diamond are the BVU3500 and the BVU3500H with the latter being native HDMI.

These adapters offer a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1152 – so still a very high amount of pixels indeed. The BVU3500 offers VGA support, however the BVU3500H does not – whereas the BVU3500H supports HDMI audio and the BVU3500 does not. Both support HDMI and DVI.

The next model is the BVU195. The BVU195 offers the same resolution capability as the BVU3500s at 2048 x 1152, but uses a USB 2.0 port instead of a USB 3.0. Also something else to consider is the fact that it has no HDMI audio support.

The last model is the BVU165, which offers a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 or 1600 x 1200 and shares the same connectivity capabilities as the BVU195 including DVI and VGA.

All Diamond BVU Adapters feature DisplayLink’s Plug and Display Technology and come with a full one year warranty. Check them out here.
