This dock only works with the 2012 Nexus 7.
Charles Moore
The micro usb port at the bottom of the Nexus 7 is very flimsy and this allows me to charge the tablet with the side pins.
Clayton
This dock allows me to use my Nexus 7 as a alarm clock perfectly.

I had a hard time justifying the $50 price for such a simple dock with no extras but I haven't yet found a case or stand that had the aesthetics that I'm looking for. Most add-ons I've come across look cheap, ugly, or don't do anything to improve wire management.

The selling point for this dock is how sleek and clean the tablet looks when docked. The simplicity of the stand along with the matching finish look great! Add to this a USB connection in the back and the result is unquestionably appealing dock for the Nexus 7. It definitely has enough weight to keep from being knocked over and the rubberized material on the bottom works very well to keep the dock from sliding around.

Unfortunately for this product, form is better than function.

The problem with this dock is the pins. For some reason the spring-loaded pogo connectors are just a bit too strong. When I drop the tablet into the dock, it doesn't weigh enough to cancel out the strength of the pins. The connection is often not made or broken as soon as I let go of the tablet. I've gotten into the habit of using both hands when docking - basically putting a bit more downward force on the right side to make sure the pins are pushed down all the way and won't push the tablet back up after release. This is especially irritating when I wake up the next morning to a low or dead battery because I was too sleepy to make sure it connected properly the night before.

The other problem I believe is a software issue so might be fixed in a future OS update. When docking, if I accidentally touch the screen before Daydream takes over (2s to 3s after docking), the tablet will stop charging regardless of the connection and I'll need to reconnect.

So far I have had the official dock for about 24 hours. As far as the basics it works great for charging and audio out. I like the convienence of not dealing with cables for charging and audio. While docked the usb does still work on the bottom with the OTG connected. However, when using OTG with a keyboard or a usb stick and nexus media importer the dock does not seem to charge. If it is charging it's losing the battle. Another con is no data transfer through the dock so unable to connect peripherals directly to the dock.

For what it costs, I was expecting it to include a charger and cable. It doesn't. I also expected the charging pins to work much better than they do--every time I touch the screen, it stops charging and I have to push down on the tablet to re-seat the connector. Also, the volume control doesn't work with the output jack, so I have to plug my headphones into the tablet every time I dock it.

I'd be fine with all this if it was a $10 Chinese knockoff, but for an expensive OEM unit, it's kind of a joke. I don't recommend it.

For one, I didn't know Amazon was selling these (the official ones). I've been staring at a "sold out" page on the Google Play store for months just to find out I could have it in 2 days with no tax...

Anyways, the unit is pretty nice. It comes in a nice Nexus style box and seems relatively well built. It's got a pretty decent bit of heft to it as well so you don't have to worry about it tipping and what not.

Also, just to make a point. This uses the pogo pins on the side of the Nexus 7. Just like the Galaxy Nexus these are meant for one purpose...audio media and charging. There is no HDMI, you will not be able to transfer USB data, etc. This is simply a well built glorified charger that lets you see the screen (and if you want, hook to a home stereo I guess...).

Personally, I use it to take advantage of the Daydream feature. It has come to replace my ancient iHome alarm clock but I seem to prefer to use it as a digital picture frame (on steroids). You can pick your Picasa album (or local photos) and just have it cycle through them.

So lets break it down. You can get a Nexus 7 for sub-$200 now. The dock will probably bring you up to $200. That's on par with the WiFi digital picture frames you can buy here on Amazon. So for maybe like $20 more you get...better resolution, a full tablet, every storage service you might need, and whatever else you can find an App for. The only real downside is you'll need to keep it plugged in.

Pros:
- Heavy
- Rubber gripped bottom.
- Nice construction. Matches the whole Nexus design.

Cons:
- No HDMI.
* The USB port on the N7 supports MHL so Google could have done something with it. Would have probably made it a nice addition to home theaters for some.

The charging port on my Nexus 7 went bad and drained a battery and I had to get a replacement and pop it in. I was able to get a charge by stacking a weight on the cable and applying pressure with it bent for hours. That was not a workable solution. I saw the dock and thought I'd try it. It charges using the pogo pins on the side. Nothing to plug in to the device ever. When I want to sync something, though, I still have to try to finagle the USB cord in the busted charging port. It met a need without having to replace the whole device.
