    This is just what I have been wanting for my desk. I can leave the Nexus 7
    on all day for when I need to use it. The 3.5 mm stereo mini plug is very nice for my powered speakers. It looks very good. I have a Blue Tooth Keyboard under it to pull it forward or back out of the way; my iPad hardly misses it at all. A little Velcro and I don't have to worry about it falling back when I touch the screen to hard. Make sure you have the sound settings set for using the dock. All in all I am happy with the purchase.

    Love the concept of this, but the charging is unreliable at best. I keep an eye to make sure the icon displays it is charging, and even then, over night, with it still showing as charging in the morning, my battery is at 14% sometimes (sometimes it is fully charged). It's very finicky. Someone (a normal person, not an elephant or a 'heavy walker') walking in the room can be enough to get break the connection for charging. So, as unreliable as it is, I have switched to propping my nexus in the docking station, but charging with the USB cable. I lose easy the drop in and take out appeal, but my nexus actually charges reliably.

          Dock makes it super simple to charge...only drawback is that you'll need to Bring Your Own Charger and USB cable.

              Works perfectly. Connects with Nexus7 pins and tablet recognizes it's on a dock. Negative is it decreases wireless reception so I have to rotate tablet to increase wireless throughput. But then it's not charging.

                Had to purchase this to alleviate a problem with the USB port becoming loose resulting in the Nexus no longer charging. The dock works perfectly and is better than just using the USB cable to charge it alone. Being able to just place the Nexus on the dock to charge is great. the Nexus stays charged more frequently as I'll place it on the dock when not in use rather than leaving it on a table.

                          This product is both functional and convenient. It can be used as a stand since it has some weight which makes it stable. It also opens up the micro USB port for other purposes such as attaching external wireless mouse and/or keyboard. The stand also has external audio out for connecting to speakers of your choice. All in all, a well thought out product albeit a bit pricey.

                          The simple fact that I can charge my Nexus without wearing out the somewhat fragile IO port is enough to justify this purchase. I have fixed several Nexus 7's for other people who have broken theirs during normal use, and that part (also includes the headphone jack) usually runs $40 for used or $60 for new.

                          The dock is weighted perfectly, and the Nexus fits snugly into place.

                          My only complaint, if I must come up with one, would be that the 3.5mm headphone jack on the back IS NOT POWERED. So, if you plug headphones directly into it you will not have much volume. This is a non-issue if you use a powered set of speakers or some other device. This fact is noted in the specs, so it doesn't deserve a reduced rating.

                          If you have a Nexus 7, you really should have this one accessory.

                                  I've decided that my Nexus 7 is too small for regular use, I have a 10" tablet that I prefer to use. The Nex-7 has been relegated to use on the bedside table, basically as a very high tech clock radio. Alarms, displays the time dimmed at night and streaming internet radio or playing music via the Google Play Music app. This stand is perfect for that use.

                                  As others have pointed out though, the connection to the POGO pins is not great. You have to rock it back and forth a little until you see the battery indicator on the screen change to the "charging" indicator. If you just stick it in the cradle, or nudge it a little there's a good chance that it is not charging and you'll find the battery dead.

                                  Other than that design flaw, it's built solidly, good weight, etc. Great price here at B&H.

                                    I like how compact this unit is. It takes up very little table/counter space. No need to plug in your nexus, just drop on top. Perfect if you do not use a case.

                                          Product was affordable, well packaged, and on time. Dock makes recharging less of a chore.

                                              Takes very little space on the desk; the docked tablet fits easily under the bezel of a 24" monitor, allowing easy access to music, calendar without disrupting main work. Bought a second dock for the nightstand to use tablet as an alarm clock. Can sort of hold the tablet vertically, but without power/audio connection and feels unstable. Docking will place tablet into "Daydream" mode which offers a few specialized screen-saver-like applications. Front-mounted buttons for power/volume would be nice as it's a bit hard to find the ones on top when docked. Cannot use with any sort of case.

                                              (The options/features listed below make it look like powerReview thinks this is the tablet itself; this review is for the dock specifically.)

                                              I use this all over the home. In the living room, kitchen, bathroom, on the porch, I can use it while connected with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse as well. I also use it in my car with my car stereo. I really like the build quality. Asus added weight to the bottom of the base which gives it a nice quality solid feel. The N7 sits into the dock very easily. It would be great to see a usb port designed into the dock as well to just add more productivity and options to work with.

                                                    Great product that works fine. It is more heavy than i expected, but i got why after setting the tablet in it.
