A friend of mine has one. After seeing it in person, I wouldn't pay more than $25.
It does the job, but that's about it. Definitely doesn't have the look/feel justifying the premium price tag.
I had the henge dock for my 13MBP, the single biggest issue I had was that the power cable had to be held in place with a Grub screw, this means its a PITA to take the power supply with you if you go out for the day.
i ended up buying a second power supply to overcome the problem
i am looking at this henge dock http://www.amazon.com/Docking-Station-15-inch-MacBook-ProCurrent/dp/B004FJJ01W/ref=pd_sim_pc_4 for my MBP 13". any thoughts? it seems like a really good dock and all.
Be interested to hear...I was also looking at the Henge dock
I am going to set it up tomorrow. i am also looking into getting a webcam and speakers so i dont need to worry about that. my planned set will be a usb hub so i can still use flash drives, one for webcam, and speakers. i need to figure out cables/wires since there will be alot. maybe tie them together to make it look neater.

I started using one yesterday after waiting for their pathetically slow order processing and shipping (UGH). It does work, but take care in how you set it up. Go to their site and watch the quick setup video instead of following the printed instructions that come with the unit. This is key.
The printed instructions have you work a few cables all the way through the unit, connect them to the laptop, and then push everything back through the top side of the dock while connected. This doesn't work all that well, specially with things like mini-DP/Thunderbolt connectors.
Instead, follow the video. Hold the laptop in your lap, ports facing up. Drop the dock down in top of it, and from there start connecting everything up. Push all of the cables into place, all the way down and into the laptop. Then tighten the set screws in.
I'd recommend connecting all of the Henge-provided cables, even if you don't intend to use them initially. Having things like the USB cables already connected and in the dock makes it easier to add devices later.
Just a FYI - They will replace your unit for free (once) if you crack one of the ports. Most common is the Thunderbolt port. Do not overtighten. And if you can, use an Apple Thunderbolt adapter. That's what the dock was designed to be used with. There will be times when the MBP doesn't want to sit properly and you'll have to readjust the cables. It can be aggravating.
