I’ve never felt the need for a dock for my computer, after all I’m usually sitting at my desktop, but the new Aegis NetDock is one that I would get if I were to need one for sure. The NetDock is a 3-in-1 USB docking station for netbooks and laptops, it incorporates a 500gb HDD, a dual layer-DVD burner and a 4-port USB hub in one small unit. You can get it with or without the hard drive, $89 without and $189 with.
With an eye-catching, candy-red enclosure, this slick-looking device is no wallflower. Allowing you to connect to up to four USB devices and featuring a built-in hard drive, the Aegis NetDock enables you to store your media collection in one location. The included synchronizing software is perfect for keeping users’ data up-to-date between their netbook and NetDock.
The NetDock’s optical drive is perfect for installing the latest software, playing games or watching a DVD. With its Dual Layer recording engine users can record up to 8.5GB of data per DVD, virtually doubling data storage capacity on a DVD recordable disc from the single layer recording capacity of 4.7 GBs.
Ideal for students working in cramped dorm rooms, the space-saving vertical stand gives the NetDock a tiny footprint, and acts as the perfect companion not only for a netbook, but also as a powered dock for any other USB devices. Included in the 4-port USB Hub are two ALWAYS ON USB ports, which are ideal for charging mobile phones and MP3 players.
The Aegis NetDock is available with or without a hard drive. The easy open enclosure enables users to add or change out the hard drive in a snap. The enclosure fits any 2.5", 9.5mm SATA hard drive. Included for use with the DVD burner are two leading CD/DVD software programs for burning and playing DVDs, synchronization software for keeping users’ data up-to-date between the NetDock and their computer, a USB cable, AC Adapter and Quick Start Guide.
