MUKii TransImp TIP-D180U3 USB 3.0 Hard Drive Dock - The MUKii TransImp Hard Drive Dock

Desktop docks are very useful if you have a few spare drives sitting around. Today we look at the new kid on the block.

The MUKii TransImp Hard Drive Dock

The MUKii TransImp Hard Drive Dock isn't just a plain desktop docking station like we are used to seeing. The shiny area at the top left is a secret window that illuminates when the drive is reading and writing. The front also has a thin brushed aluminum strip that wraps around to the side.

Looking at the dock from the top we see the door system that allows 2.5" drives to stay in place. The door opens when you insert a 3.5" desktop drive. My favorite feature is the power button that is conveniently placed at the top of the dock. A small storage slot is located on the side of the dock as well. This slot is large enough to hold another 2.5" drive.

The back of the dock is fairly straight forward; you have a USB port and power plug.

On the side we see how the brushed aluminum wraps around one side.

MUKii includes a nice accessory kit with the unit. There is a quick install guide, the software disc, power plug and a USB 3.0 cable that is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. The only real issue that I see so far is in the length of the USB 3.0 cable; it should be longer for users who don't want to mount their dock on the edge of the desk.
