The Kingwin Dock Master has a very simple and solid design. The dock is made of a very high quality plastic, and feels like a quality piece of equipment in your hand. The exterior design of the device is very simple and will look good on your desk. Across the front you have the Dock Master logo. Just below is the Kingwin logo which is lit by an LED that acts as the power and activity light. Around the top is the hard drive slot and the Superspeed USB Certified logo. Since the dock supports both 2.5” and 3.5” hard drives the slot cover has a double-tier design allowing you to insert a 2.5” drive while keeping the top of the dock flush. The back is also kept plain and clear; you have your power button, DC in and USB 3.0 Connector.
Docking a hard drive is just as easy as you can imagine; you simply slide it in. Though the drive doesn’t click in or have any major tactile feedback, you can feel that the drive sits securely in the dock. When docked the drive will stand straight out of the dock and does not wobble at all. There is no active cooling for the hard drive so that is left up to the ambient air.
Now on to the installation.
