Setup: Very easy, just un-box it, plug it in and you're ready to go.
Pros: It feels sturdy and holds the Xoom well, you can easily type on the Xoom and the viewing angle is very natural. It has an hdmi output, power connector on the back, on the front there's a cut out so you can still speak and the Xoom's mic will pick up on your voice.
Cons: No USB out, no included HDMI cable.
It's not a bad dock if you want to put it next to a TV and use the HDMI feature, or maybe on a coffee table or in the kitchen to use the built in speakers to play out some Pandora or other music.
It did take me a couple attempts to learn how to place the Xoom on the dock. I can see how it could damage the dock if you have it at the wrong angle and press down too hard. Once you learn the correct angle to use, it slides onto the dock very easily.
I was a little disappointed to see that the HDMI output on the back of the dock is not a fullsize HDMI slot. It is the same mini HDMI as on the Xoom itself, meaning you will still need to have a cable that goes from the smaller form factor the the normal. It seems to me like it would have been easy enough for the dock to include a regular size HDMI output. A USB output would have also been nice.
The speaker is decent sound quality. It's not great but it's better than the built in Xoom speakers. A headphone jack on the front of the dock would have been nice too.
What I do like about the dock, is that it holds the Xoom at a good angle, and charges the unit while you're using it. It pairs well with the bluetooth keyboard. I'm using both right now as I write this review.
The three biggest let down and hence the 2 stars rating is that:
a) as a sound "HD" accessory,.. the sounds component is awful! very tin-ny with the low frequency (bass) being a real let down. Even with the 'bass boost' which is just a hole cut out on the back does not help. I wasn't expecting anything like the Bose Sounddock that you can get for the ipad/pods, but come-on Motorola, this is a disgrace after doing such a wonderful job on the Xoom. For the amount of money i paid for this, i expected something that's much better sounding.
b) docking the Xoom is very difficult. There are two sockets plus sprung loaded pins that protrude making it really hard to locate and mate properly. There is the dot on the front bottom center of the Xoom and docking station, but all it does is it gets you roughly in the right place. You still have to wiggle the Xoom around a bit until it falls in. I'm very afraid that if you are too rough, you will eventually damage the fragile feeling sockets on the Xoom. Just looking closely at the Xoom sockets, I can see that it's worn away alot only after about 1 months' use.
c) the power supply buzzes... i use the Xoom as an alarm clock and so it's on my beside table docked. Once i turn the lights out and your hearing becomes more sensitive, you can hear the power supply's high pitch buzzing which can be very irritating if you are trying to fall asleep. It's got to a stage where I disconnect the power supply at night.Read more ›
To answer the complaints about damaging your Xoom, I'll admit this isn't as easy as an iPod dock. But the instructions are clear. Align dots. A child could dock and undock this if only they read the instructions.
I'm sure the failure rate isn't 50%, but it might well not be 0 - people complaining that their docks don't fit might actually have faulty docks, or devices made out-of-tolerance.

This was a purchase to solve an issue I was having with my XOOM tablet's tiny charging port. This HD speaker dock is AWESOME and it sounds really great too with plenty of bass and... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Matt S
These are great for Motorola Xoom tablets. Charging ports are poorly designed and this docking station allows you to bypass the charging port and charge it without the hassle.Published 3 months ago by FFR Tech Services LLC
Only reason it got 4 stars is its a little hard to get to put in cradle if you have a cover on your Xoom. Other than that you won't be disappointed!Published 4 months ago by Scott Foster
