    not so good

    • Written by from Loma Linda

    do not bye if you have a smartcover or any other protection for your iPad. i never used it because then i would have to remove my covers and that made it completely useless.

    Useless

    • Written by from Enschede

    If you use a back cover for your Ipad, like I do, it's almost useless. You need to remove the cover every time. So I almost don't use it.
    But it looks very professional ^^.

    It's a dock, and it works.... perfectly...Part II.

    • Written by from Marmora

    I love the dock. It's simple, solidly built and holds the iPad securely. Since the iPad syncs with iTunes wirelessly and backs up to my iCloud account, the dock sits at my bedside full time. I had considered buying two docks, one for my pc and one for the bedroom but I found this to be unnecessary.

    I don't see how anyone could have an issue with this product IF they read the product description and looked at the pictures. Nowhere does it say anything about being compatible with any iPad covers nor do any of the illustrations show an iPad with a cover. As for the orientation, the description clearly states "Your iPad sits upright in the dock." Having said that, if you pull the smart cover back an inch or so, you can dock your iPad and then close the cover. C’mon people, it’s $29.

    It does its job

    • Written by from Rexburg

    To be honest, those who are giving this product negative reviews don't seem to have given their purchase much thought. So far as I can see, those griping about it are saying that it doesn't work with cases and such. Knowing Apple, though, it makes sense that it wouldn't. They like to streamline their products. It wouldn't look quite so attractive sitting on your desk if it was covered up with a chunky case. It's just Apple. That being said, the dock does what it's meant to do. It makes typing with the Apple bluetooth keyboard much nicer, and it just looks great sitting on my nightstand. I've had no issues with charging. As far as a docking station goes in terms of its uses, it's a great product.

    Difficult to use

    • Written by from edgewood

    I would not recommend. It is very difficult to place iPad on the dock, with or without using a cover. To manipulate the iPad to engage the dock scratched the iPad.

    Perfect

    • Written by from Eden Prairie

    What's to complain about? It's sturdy, simple, and parks my beautiful iPad like a boss..... I love that I can also flip the iPad landscape and it holds just fine. I'm actually happy it doesn't allow me to plug in my iPhone in to it, this way it has the perfect fit just for the iPad rather than fatter iPhones and others... It's nice and snug instead. So what else do you want? It also plugs in headphones. It's 5 stars for me...

    IPAD dock

    IPAD 3 doesn't connect with cover in place and is difficult for me to connect without cover

    Meh

    • Written by from Manassas Park

    Can't fit the iPad in the dock with the smart cover on. That's a pretty glaring flaw.
    The iPad doesn't connect easily, it's a bit awkward to get it snapped in.
    Doesn't support landscape mode.

    Not that Dynamic

    • Written by from Alameda

    It's not bad if all you need is to have it sit upright, power up, and/or plug into your stereo; it fits nice 'n' snug and feels secure like what's expected from Apple...

    It DOES NOT have IR sensor like the iPhone/iPad docks do so you CAN NOT use the Apple remote with it.

    It also DOES NOT accommodate landscape mode.

    I Do Not Recommend This

    • Written by from Menlo Park

    You can only dock your iPad in one direction (portrait). I should've read the product description and / or reviews more carefully. I would return this but I already threw away the box.

    Stand Works Well

    • Written by from Black Hawk

    Interesting complaints from the lazy. The stand works well WITH the polyurethane magnetic covers, and charges the iPad. Probably wouldn't suggest using it around small children and idiots.

    Great for Nightstand

    • Written by from Folsom

    Perfect if you use your iPad for listening to books, or use it for an alarm/clock. You can connect speakers to the stand. For what it does, the price is fair in my opinion.

    Limited utility

    • Written by from APTOS

    Dock did not come with a cable, so it is useless as an extra charging station. Second it is shaped in a way that will not permit the charging of an iPhone. All in all, a real disappointment.

    extra power cord not included

    • Written by from San Diego

    In the grand tradition of Apple nickel-and-diming you to death, the dock does not include a separate power cord. You have to use the one that came with your iPad2, which means if you want to leave a permanent charging, music station at home and have a portable charger (e.g. for work), you will have to buy another one. Good product, but SO annoying.

    Love it

    • Written by from Lewisville

    Do not be dissuaded by the negative reviews of this iPad 2 charging dock. It works and functions perfectly for me. I could not ask for anything more. It makes my iPad 2 even more valued that it already was.
    And I use my Apple Smartcover always. There are 3 ways you can do that.
    1. Leave the Smart cover on your iPad. Open the cover, place the iPad into the dock. Then close the cover. Not difficult, folks.
    2. Leave the Smart cover on your iPad. Simply fold the cover into a triangle on that side of the iPad and leave it attached to the iPad. Place the iPad into the dock. Duh.
    3. Gently pull the cover off. Fold it into a triangle and set it behind the dock. Place the iPad into the dock. Easy. And no, the smart cover has NEVER scratched my iPad.

    Design was meant to be clean and free from accessories

    • Written by from Cranston

    I actually knew what I was getting into when purchasing this doc. I actually wanted it to be simple and not bulky. Pro's, its cheap plus you can connect external speakers or Have the HDMI kit hooked up with your iPad. I managed to get my SmartCover to snap on and close...so I really don't know why the bash? You have to first place iPad with out the cover the snap on the cover and let it rest over the dock seems to work fine for me.

    If there was a con it would probably be that you can't do Landscape, if so it would have been five stars.
