I've yet to use the product however I've read great things about it.
My main frustration is no where does it give you any info as to what type of hdmi cable is needed for this device. Even after I received it there was nothing on the packaging, the manual inside, or the product itself stating that the hdmi port on product is a the type D Micro hdmi cable.
Of course the only info that was available was in the manufacturer's description which simple included (in a font size 4 sizes smaller I should add)

After a few weeks of use I have to stick with a 1/5 star rating of this item.
When using as a dock on a nightstand
1) Be prepared to remove any case you have in order for your phone to fit into the docking station
2) Make sure you visually lineup the phones connectors with the docking station's connectors (if you sit in the the dock and slide it towards the connectors 80% of the time they don't line up correctly. Also when you do have the connectors lined up, you have to apply some force for the phone to accept both the power connector & the micro hdmi connector
3) Make sure you have downloaded custom dock profiles from the phone's app store. Once in dock mode you lose easy access to about 98& of your phone's programs.
When using as a dock to display hdmi content to a TV/Receiver etc
1)There is a 4-6 second delay between when any program on the phone is opened / closed and when the video/audio is fed through the hdmi cable
2) Without using the dock for the HDMI connection you have the option in the phone to edit how the hdmi size & aspect ratio looks on your TV. When you use the dock, the dock has its own settings (that you can't customize) which make the picture on your tv (at best) using about 70% of the tv's screen size.
If you plan on using the phone to display hdmi video/audio content on a TV the nifty price tag doesn't justify buying this product for its simple "docking" feature.
Shell out the extra $3-$5 for a wire organizer and you will have the same thing.
Or better yet. For less $$$ get yourself a combo of something that includes similar items
GTMax Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard + 15FT Micro HDMI Cable + 3x Stylus with Flat Tip (Black/ Red/ Blue) for HTC Evo 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Acer Iconia A500 , BlackBerry PlayBook, Motorola XOOM (Package include a Mini Cleaning Brush)
Is just one random example.
Basically only get the dock if you have no need to hook it up to a tv; you can't find a cheaper stand to lay the phone on its side; and you want to pay over $25 for the included charger which you can find for $3.
