    No hidden costs. I bought couple of stuff from it before. Pretty good, shipping is little slow because all from HK. Quality is decent, you get what you paid for. No complaints. :)

    Wouldn't really call it counterfeit since it looks nothing like the official iPad dock, but this is going to be one of thousands of accessories that pop up in the next couple of months.

    Let us know if it works! I have ordered from Dealextreme plenty but try to keep it to items that are $5 or less. That way if it fails, i don't care that much ;-).

    Well, if they write "genuine" in the description when it isn't, i'd mark them as counterfeits :p

    But you're right. A lot of accesoires there as I see in another forum, humongous amount of cheap covers and sleeves :eek::eek: :

    Totally forgot about this topic.

    But I've received the ipad dock ages ago. And it's quite well built, support the ipad very well. It syncs, it charges. What do you need more?

    Well maybe it could be a bit more heavy, because when pulling out the ipad, the dock will be lifted too :p

    Actually it boils down to semantics. By saying genuine, they could merely be saying that is genuinely for the Apple iPad and not necessarily an official apple product.

    It's vague yes, but counterfit - perhaps not.

    You sure it charge ? because their review say that it doesn't ?

    But that one, white, cost less (16.50) and it supposed to charge well AND it does have an line out :
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.39661

    But it look like an iphone charger...There is no review yet :(

    I found a similar one for 2$ less at Focalprice with free shipping too : http://www.focalprice.com/ID031W/Universal_Dock_Charger_Stand_Holder_for_Apple_iPad_White.html, no review there either...

    Found another one for less than 7$, like your Black one but this one is white: http://www.focalprice.com/ID047W/Charger_Cradle_Dock_Stand_Station_for_iPad_White.html

    Oh, it charges, really slowly on USB when the ipad-screen is off, just like the normal 30-pins cable.
    But I have it connected to the iPad charger directly if I want it to charge and act as a photoframe :)
