Recently we reviewed the latest HLDS external optical storage solution and we also compared it with various other competitors. HLDS as a company keeps innovating and adjust their product line to today’s needs. While optical storage may not be at its top popularity, other storage mediums are, like USB and generally flash storage. External HUBs are a necessity with today’s slim Laptops that don’t have many USB-A/C ports to cover most users’ needs. HLDS continues to innovate and today introduces the Universal Data Station (UDS). So what is an UDS drive? And what it can offer to users?
Universal Data (UD) Station aims to "make data management in daily life easier" by diversifying the methods of recording, storing, sharing, and playing back data. That means easier data management using laptops and tablets while working from home or attending distance education. You can connect to various storage devices such as CD/DVD, SD card, USB memory, and external HDD. In addition to Windows and Mac OS compatibility, UD Link app enables connectivity with Android OS. Lastly provides convenience in transferring personal data stored in multiple cloud storages onto DVD and SD card.
UD (Universal Data Station) is a USB Type C External ODD drive with two USB Type an input ports & micro SD card reader. Universal Data Station connects laptop with Type-C USB cable and provides additional Type-A USB ports. It is a perfect choice to newly released laptops with less / without Type-A USB Port since users do not need to purchase additional multi-USB hub. Universal Data Station contains four ports that can be linked to multiple PC accessories. Users can connect all the devices to UD Station at once.
The first UDS drive from HLDS comes with the UD10NS20 codename. Users can use this device not only to burn/read CD/DVD media but also transfer media and view the content to an HDMI device with the integrated HDMI hub (more on this later on).
Apart from the hardware part, the UDS comes with a new powerful and redesigned app that supports watching DVDs on Android-based TV, tablets, and Smartphones, backup from your files to external media and much more. This product can play DVD on Android-based TVs such as Sony, Sharp, or Panasonic by connecting the USB cable (Type-C) included.
