The Kingwin PD-2537U3 Power Dock arrives in a white and blue cardboard box, with a very nice image of the docking station on the front.
Kingwin listed out the Power Dock’s specifications on the right side panel of the box. This is fairly typical though, and what I find more interesting is the use of a QR code to promote the company’s Facebook page. This marketing method should be utilized by more manufactures.
The left side of the box is graced with a ¾ profile shot of the Power Dock with its key highlights listed to the left.
With the box opened up we can see that Kingston has included a mini-dvd that includes the company’s one touch backup software. I actually would like to see driver and software CDs like this removed from the industry as a whole, as they are a major waste of resources, and not needed with modern broadband speeds. Besides, who has a CD or DVD drive in their PCs these days? I haven’t had one for over three years now.
Included in the box is the Power Dock, a power supply, a short (3-foot) usb cable, driver CD, user manual, and warranty card.
You will note that Kingwin wrapped the Ultrabox in a protective plastic bag to preserve the docking station’s sleek satin finish. Now that we have the unboxing covered, let’s dig deeper and take a closer look at the Power Dock by Kingwin.
