Review of the Dexim MHub Dock Station

The Dexim DWP005 MHub Dock Station is a very inexpensive solution for reducing clutter if you have an iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry phone, or digital camera.

First Impressions

The DWP005 Dock Station came with a dual USB adapter, a micro USB cable, a 3.5 DC USB cable, two mini USB cords and a travel bag. The aluminum case looks attractive and durable. Any iPhone and most iPods with 30-pin connectors can be placed on the dock's connector. Other devices can be connected via the USB cables provided with the dock station. I have tried the Dexim MHub Dock Station with my iPhone 4, iPod, HTC phone and BlackBerry and did not have any issues.

Not the Most Intuitive Design.

The port placement of this device is not ideal. Although the A/C adapter input port is on the back, where it should be, the mini USB port should have been placed on the back too. Instead, it is located on the front of the dock's left, while the SD card reader is on its rear left side. This might not seem like a big deal, but consider the following scenario. I powered the dock through the A/C adapter and placed my iPhone 4 on the dock. I used the mini USB port to charge my Canon digital camera. Now the dock had two cables sticking out of the back and the left side of the Dexim DWP005, making the whole setup look a bit cluttered. Now, if you have an SD card in the card reader, then you will have to go over the mini USB cable to reach it. You might not have such a configuration, but if you do you may find it irritating.

The SD card reader allows your computer to access it. However, you have no way to store photos or music from your iPhone to the card without using your computer. If there were an iPhone application for this, then the SD card reader would be much more useful.
