So having read the reviews I can lump the bad reviews into two basic groups. A few people who might have actually gotten a slightly defective product, and most of the people who failed to read an important note in the description of this product..

NOTE: Apple iPad need a 2A input charging current, and the USB ports of a usual computer just support about 500mA to 700mA.So it is impossible to charge your iPad via your computer USB ports.

This means that if you plug the thing into your computer it WILL NOT charge.
If you plug it into a wall it WILL NOT sync.
These are two separate and distinct functions that it appears to preform flawlessly for the people (like me) who read the note accompanying the description of the product here on Amazon.

Plug it into my stupid windows computer and transfer some files, yay! Perfection.
Plug it into a wall outlet and charge it, yay! Perfection again!

Not what one might be led to believe if they read only the bad reviews. This simply reaffirms my belief that as a general rule people only read what they want to read and assume that everything works exactly the way they think it should regardless of facts, or technical requirements.

This little iPad dock works great! I have no idea what the other review is about, but this works well. It allows you to charge your iPad standing up, so it's not laying all over the counter, taking up space and possibly getting bumped. Mine has no problem making contact with my iPad at all. You just have to make sure both ends of your cord are plugged in securely. The iPad docks securely, so it doesn't wobble at all.

I have to tilt my ipod and ipad forward in order for it to connect and charge. I also have to remove my protective cases (which are thin) in order to even get a tilted connection. It does work with some tweeking but I would not suggest buying this product.

I've had this for a couple weeks and I use it all the time. It's been working great for me! My only hang up is that because its not very big, it doesn't hold my iPad in place very well. This is something I should have thought of when purchasing it but I didn't. It just makes it hard to use when docked because it tends to come off the dock easily. Otherwise, great purchase!

I have the first gen iPad, and use the apple case. It charges the iPad well, you need to remove the case. Not a deal breaker for me, since I only do so once a week. I'd consider another dock if I see one for this price

This product was potentially exactly what I was looking for. However, even though it syncs to the computer, it does not charge the iPad. Reading other reviews it appears others have similar problems and satisfaction is a hit or miss thing. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND even though the $7 price sucked me right into the purchase (the shipping was more than the product). Keep looking.

I purchased this for my Ipad2, but it is difficult to make the connection because the connector on the charging station wobbles too much and is difficult to line up with my ipad.

Neither of the iPad docks worked. They were poor imitations. The cost and hassle of retturning them not worth it.Beware of this company,s products! Bonnie

I read all the reviews about how this device doesn't work. I knew since there were no official logos, copyright symbols, etc., that this was probably not an original apple product, or even an OEM. I was pretty sure it would be a 3rd party reproduction. I'm not sure what the problem is that the previous reviewers had, as I don't have any complaints about the functionality of this product. I received it in a sealed package, that was in a box. It was a little dirty, there's a couple little rubber smudges on it. Not sure what it is, but I was able to wipe them off.

The 30 pin connection for charging works fine, I have it plugged into a syncing/charging cable (a 6ft. 3rd party cable no less) then into a USB adapter and plugged into a regular 110V outlet and it charges fine, slowly (because the 3rd Party cable is not 2.1 rated). I have not tried syncing it though. I just wanted it to use as an iPad stand, and to plug into my external speakers for audio as I sync it with my home PC. Audio, brings me to my next point in regards to the previous reviewer complaints. I used a 3.5 mm audio cable Male to Male, and plugged it into the auxiliary input on my 2.1 speakers, and it works just fine, regardless of the app or audio source used. It works with the iPod app, my SiriusXM app (requires subscription of course), and Pandora. If the reviewer before was trying to plug it into a PC, I can see why that wouldn't work, as the Audio input on most computers, isn't an input, but an output, and many PCs have outputs or microphone inputs that are 3.5 mm jacks, but they are not audio inputs. The PC is generally not used as a passive audio device...I hope that makes sense. The only audio qualm I have is that there's no volume control on the iPad 2 itself, when it's in the dock. HOWEVER, this is not the docking stations fault, it is just the way it is when you use any docking station with audio features, the volume must be controlled by the speaker system device regardless of what the iPad 2 is docked in.

Design wise, it is obvious it's not an original Apple product because it doesn't quite fit the iPad 2 exactly. There's a little wiggle room and the 30 pin connector could be a little tighter fit.

Overall, it does what I need and wanted it to do. I will update the functionality of the syncing if I ever decide to use it that way.

1. "Be advised" that this item is not manufactured by Apple.
2. It is only a charging stand.
3. You will "NOT" have any audio once your iPad is docked in this charging stand.
4. "ONCE AGAIN" this is ONLY a charging stand.
5. If you expect to listen to Pandora or iTunes, FORGET IT! It's not going to happen.
6. After purchasing the first one thinking that it was defective, they sent me another one and it didn't work either.
7. Since this is only a charging stand, it should be noted in the description of the item.
