    I realize the engineering that went into the doc, but $49 is a way better price point for these.

    Isn't it a given that less cost is always prefer to the buyer?

    I dont think that that is always true. If these were $14.99 people would begin to think that they are junk, etc.

    If it were $14.99, it'd be junk I'd be willing to try out. But then again, that's cause I'm cheap.

    Any idea if the Sector 5 with Attack™ Back Plate - Carbon Fiber will fit in this dock?

    True, but they include their lightning adapter (to be used with your own Apple lightning connector) so that if you want, you can swap out their 30-pin connector to use the dock with your iPhone 5. :)

    Does this work with a case on the 4/4s or the 5?

    Yep. It's about $40 off, and you still get the 30pin parts so you can use it with an older phone. The elevation dock is supposed to have a low friction 30pin connector. From the reviews I've read it will fit most cases.

    Considering people have been buying them at full price for a while, I think it's a pretty good deal, except the approximately $10 shipping kinda kills it for me. Still pondering getting one, but I already have one of the element case docks.

    This is a neat dock! I really wonder how heavy it is though.

    That's true of ALL lightning docks at this point. The connector just has a lot of resistance. To date, nobody has come out with a dock that doesn't suffer from this "connection gate" problem. Some of us with docks have modified the connector to fix this, but there are no commercial solutions to allow frictionless undocking. They're pretty upfront on the site that the dock uses the apple cable and will not be frictionless like it was for the iphone4
