It's not very often I give out an Editor's Choice Award, but as I write this I am considering it. The TransImp HDD Dock USB 3.0 has a lot going for it when it comes to the design. The power button location was the obvious one and it stuck out as soon as I opened the box. The next thing that caught my eye was the attractive design; you will want to display this unit on your desk. Then again, there are also two issues I found and really don't like.
The first has to do with the price compared to some of the other docking stations that are on the market, mainly the ineo Technology unit we tested just last month. The ineo Tech unit was by far the lowest priced desktop docking station that we could find in the US, but nonetheless it is what it is, a very low cost unit and that throws a wrench in the MUKii scoring. The second thing I didn't like was the length of the USB cable that came with the Dock. I really would like to have another foot or two so I can pull my PC out from under the table and not have to worry about pulling a bare hard drive off my desk if I forget to unplug the unit.
When it comes to the performance, the MUKii USB 3.0 Dock is able to take advantage of every last drop available from our GIGABYTE X58A-UD7's USB 3.0 port. That is obviously a very strong point, but one that has been equally matched by several USB 3.0 devices to date.
The only real question left is if the MUKii TransImp HHD Dock is the best USB 3.0 desktop docking station on the market right now. To be honest, I really can't answer that question right now since we have only tested two to date. Since I have some down time from SSD reviews until January, this may just become a project to get into; finding the absolute best desktop docking station made. As it sits right now, though, the MUKii TransImp is a strong contender for the title.
