    I love it. That's all I can say about it. It's sturdy, charges pretty fast and you can sit it on your nightstand for convienence.

    Tired of hearing you can't use smart cover with this product! YOU CAN!!

    • Written by from catasauqua

    You CAN use the smart cover with this product so stop saying you can't. Just put the iPad 2 in the dock with the smart cover OPEN then after the i pad 2 is in the dock simply close the cover. When your ready to use the iPad 2 simply pull it off like usual. When your finished repeat the process. i can't believe you all complain, when all that needs to be done is something simple... Americans are getting lazier and lazier.

    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.

    Simple.

    • Written by from Trussville

    I don't get it? Why is everyone complaining about this. All it does is hold and charge your iPad 2. That's what it was made for.

    For everyone's information, you are supposed to take the smart cover off before putting it on the dock haha

    Much Improved over the original, Great Quality

    • Written by from Westville

    This Dock is about twice the size. It weighs a lot more than the original one so there is no dock coming up with the iPad; when I'm ready to use it. It has a groove that lines up the iPad when you are setting it into place and a grove in the front to keep it stable and the keep the iPad from bouncing back and forth if you choose to tap on it while it's in the stand and it keeps the iPad at the optimum angle for viewing(much improved over the original).

    If you line up the bottom button on the iPad with the bottom silver colored connector on the dock.....the device will always land perfectly in place......Clever!!!!!( and what I've come to appreciate about apple products....even a monkey can do it)

    I'm impressed with this product....

    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.

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

    • Written by from Bothell

    After reading a few of these reviews, I'm left wondering if "reading" is hard. It's not difficult to slide in and out of the docking station. It fits perfectly. Let me say it again, it fits perfectly.

    And, no, it does not "rotate" for landscape viewing..... good grief. How could anyone conceive that this dock would allow for viewing in landscape mode? Seriously.

    I'd rate it 7 stars, but the dock does not open my garage, pay my bills, or *gasp* allow landscape viewing.

    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.

    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.

    Super useful

    • Written by from brooklyn

    I was hesitant to get this $29 dock, but decided to just get it. It was the best decision I made. It makes life SO MUCH easier when you want to charge the iPad, or just have it there on your nightside table or desk. Its small but has weight to it, which is a good thing so the iPad does not come up with it when you take it out (I read that was a big issue with the original iPad and its dock). Yes, its true, the smart cover does not stay on if you would like to dock it, but people, all you have to do is fold it over to the back. No big deal and definitely not a reason to not get this dock. If your'e not sure whether or not to get it, just go for it. You'll realize how convenient it is to charge it like that instead of laying it down. And I know it may seem like a luxury non-essential item but come on, you already bought the non-essential iPad, don't worry about the dock for it.

    My ONLY con is that it does not have a sensor on the front to use the Apple remote with. That would made this thing perfect.

    Pros- Heavy weight (as I explained, this is a pro), nice angle, convenience, space saver/ makes you look more organized.

    Im really enjoying my iPad dock and realizing what a good decision it was to get it.

    Way better than expected!!!

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I don't normally make it a point of reviewing most Apple products, but I gotta add my 2 cents on this one: The iPad 2 dock is way better than expected, especially since the dock for the first iPad was pretty flimsy and not all that secure. This dock holds the iPad 2 in place securely, without a lot of effort to guide it in. It is also bigger than the original dock which makes it more stable, and the viewing angle is perfect. While the original iPad dock will work with the iPad 2, this dock is a far better option for daily use.

    No, it doesn't include a cable or charging brick, but those come with every iPad!

    If you have an iPad 2 but a dock for the original iPad, this is totally worth the $29 investment. After all, you spent $500 to $829 on the iPad 2, am I right? What's the difference for another $29 product that makes the experience all that better?

    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...

    I bought iPad 2 with it's dock, camera connector, 2 smart covers!
    I frankly love the iPad 2 Dock as I keep it in my office connected with nice speakers for charging and background music! No issues of alignment I just had to hold the Dock when I want to disconnect my iPad.
    Overall i am very pleased with it!
