Let me start out by talking about the pros of this case: it is well-built and compliments my Macbook Pro nicely. But there are a few things that are missing.
The dock is very lightweight, so you'll have to hold the dock while unplugging. I duct taped the dock to my desk so I could unplug with one hand.
Also, there is a very good chance your case will not fit with this dock; mine didn't. Any case that covers the bottom of the phone (and I mean any plastic whatsoever on the bottom of the case--even a little bit) the case will not go on. I have a Belkin View case for my iPhone 5 and it did not fit because the case covered the bottom (it had openings for the headphone jack/mic, lightning port, and speaker). I cut the bottom of the case and made the 3 openings into one large one and now the phone docks normally. This case is made for people who like no cases or people with snap-on cases. Normal and protective case people, steer clear.
It does what is advertised though, and it is one of the best docks out there.
The best iPhone 5 dock i've seen, but it could be so much better

The look and feel of the dock is great, it's at a great angle, and is designed to fit most cases. You could probably even stick an ipad mini on it.
The only bug-bears that i have, is that it's a fused plug!? If the USB connection dies on me (Which it eventually will) I'll have to replace the entire thing, not just the cable. The lightning connection is also quite stiff, so you have to hold the dock with one hand, and the phone with the other to get it off the dock.
