    I was searching eBay, hoping to find a cheap Universal iPod dock, which is normally $39.99+Tax from apple, and I found this!! This same seller is selling a few of these, buy it now $4.99?? and Shipping to where I live will only be $6.99!!
    Please tell me if this is the same universal dock that apple sells, and that it will work with my 30gb iPod

    It's clearly a cheap knock off. The word accessories (accessAries?) is spelled wrong on the box. It may very well work with the actual ipod charger as specified, but it is def a cheap knock-off.

    yeah, I just noticed that as well, lol...

    it has a 3 month seller warranty, so if I get it and it doesn't work with my iPod, I get a refund :p

    It, like all the other cheap / fake iPod accessories, will work perfectly and be just as dependable as the "real deal". Hell, they're probably made in the same factory that Apple uses. Go for it.

    Unless you have personal experience with this particular product, it you would in the best interest of everyone for you to not spout of speculation and supposition as fact. Confusing other posters into believing such a ridiculous claim as "its a cheap and fake accessory, therefore it must work!" doesn't help anyone.
