    Very Disappointed & it's Useless

    • Written by from Blackburn

    I have to say this should be taken down from apples products & Redesigned Totally.

    This is a waste of time getting if you would like landscape mode as you can ONLY use this in Portrait ONLY & like many apple user's out there a lot of us mostly use this in landscape mode.

    Also the smart cover behind when you dock the Ipad does not fit right. It's Very untidy & I would of expected much more from apple.

    Be warned if your buying this. Make sure you know it's Pros & Cons people OK.
    Right now Last time i laid my eyes on this in the house it was at the bottom of our Kids Toy box.

    NOTE TO APPLE!!
    Who ever designed this needs a chance to redesign it & Fast..

    Love it but please please make a new one to work with the Smart Cover

    • Written by from Newbury Park

    I love it but I have Smart Cover problems. I'm totally not going to rate it one star because that's overdoing it. It's not that big of a deal. But to others, it is, and that's why those idiots rate it one star. Moving on, the iPad fits perfectly and is easy to put on the dock and take it off. I didn't realize that this had a speaker output so you can plug in speakers to the dock and listen to music. Now I'm going to buy speakers for this.

    Just got my Ipad2 and the dock is a real necessity. Small, sleek and hopefully does the job.

    I love this dock!!!

    • Written by from Fountain Hills

    I just bought this dock yesterday at Best Buy and I love it! It's an awesome product- it has a sleek finish and looks great anywhere in my house! I use it for my iPad 2. I saw some of the reviews saying it is loose but it's definitely not. Just make sure you get the dock that is compatible with your generation iPad!!!!! Another great thing about this is because the iPod (4th gen) is shaped similar, I can charge it in the dock too!!! I definitely encourage anyone to buy this product!!!!

    Disfuctional

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I would give it no stars if I had the option. 90% of the time when I dock my iPad2 into the docking station it does not charge. The sync functions work fine, but I have to plug it into a direct connection to a wall plug to charge it. Apple needs to look at their accesories a little better.

    Unjust criticism

    • Written by from Ruthin

    Don't normally bother reviewing stuff but got this iPad dock, and none of the criticism posted here is justified. You don't have to remove the smart case, just fold it into a triangle behind it as you would if you were using it as a stand, and the iPad fits perfectly in the dock.

    People complain it doesn't work in landscape mode - of course it doesn't, it doesn't claim too! It clearly shows and describes the iPad docked in portrait mode, the charger goes in at the bottom so how anyone could expect it to work in landscape mode, I don't know.

    This is an excellent dock, keeps my iPad charged in the right postion for reading documents, which is what I use it for primarily - replacing paper.

    OK but could do with ext mic input and remote

    • Written by from Alton

    The design is good but I wish they'd have included an external mic input along side the line out and a remote control for music and video navigation would have been nice. in short it's too basic and has missed a trick

    Very bad

    • Written by from VERO BEACH

    I don't know who designed the iPad Dock but it just doesn't fit with the smart cover.It really bothers me as usually all Apple products fit perfectly, but this time they screwed up as it is even nowhere mentioned that you can't use it with the smartcover.

    Apple please change that immediatly!

    Buyer Beware

    • Written by from South Yarra

    I find it incredulous that Apple sell this item.!!
    It is totally useless unless you are prepared to take your iPad out of your Apple Smart Case every time you want to use it.
    For our own reasons we choose to buy pay for Apple products over much cheaper android generic products
    Just thankful I didn't buy the double dock for iPhone iPad

    GREAT Product!!!

    • Written by from Tuluá

    Don't listen to the low raters.

    This product is just great. The ipad fits in pretty straight and firm. It's very solid and useful.

    There's NO real risk for the ipad of falling or something. Plugging it is very easy. I Love it and use it while I write for my blog with a Bluetooth keyboard.

    Really recommended.

    terrible design

    • Written by from CLAYVILLE

    Why on earth would apple make a stand that doesn't fit if you use the case they make? It won't even work with the smart cover they make and sell! Ridiculous. I'm returning it, terrible design, terrible product, very disappointed Apple would make something this poor.

    Works, but poor design

    • Written by from Colleyville

    Once you get your iPad onto the dock, it works fine. The base of the dock is weighted so that your iPad does not fall over easily. With a charger connected, it charges your iPad. With an audio cable, you can play music and podcasts to your radio or other powered speaker. Both nice features.

    The problem is that getting your iPad to fit onto the dock is problematic. You have to line it up just right to work. Otherwise it slides off the dock all too easily. What this means in practice is that you can't just plop your iPad on the dock in a casual, one-handed manner and expect it to work. You have hold the iPad with two hands, take the time to line it up with the dock adapter, then insert it slowly. Not good if you are the impatient type - like me!

    I love this docking station. I use it almost daily and it holds the iPad well. It holds the iPad at a great angle to see photos or movies, while charging the iPad. A great purchase. Highly recommend it!

    It's nicely weighty, has great minimalist design ... and it's a dock for an iPad.

    Should fit with Apple Brand iPad cases

    • Written by from Chaska

    The Smart Case interferes and doesn't allow iPad to plug into this Dock connector. Shouldn't have to pull the iPad out of the case just to use this - sort of defeats the purpose of a case, doesn't it Apple?
