This is for the 1st Generation Nexus. The Official Nexus 7 Dock is designed with a rubberized bottom and weighted down to provide the best docking performance. Pogo-pins charges the Nexus 7 and provides sound to the audio jack which is ideal for powered speaker systems. With the official ASUS Nexus 7 Dock, there is no need to physically connect to the Nexus 7's USB port because pogo-pins do all the work, allowing rapid docking and undocking.

It uses the perhaps not-well-known electrodes on the side of the tablet for charging the battery.
The tablet fits in it well and stably, and the dock also includes a 2.5mm / 1/8 inch headphone jack.
I paid $5 less than retail, whatever the retail price was. Although the product works very well, I feel like Asus is doing an "Apple" and soaking people for this product, when it is known the USB/charging cable is not very robust and has had issues.
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.
- Rubber gripped bottom.
- Nice construction. Matches the whole Nexus design.
- 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.
- I see $30 as perfectly reasonable. Remember, this isn't plastic and doesn't require anything plugged in. It uses the pogo pins.
- No charger. Could be a bit of a pain if you're using the provided N7 chord (it's kind of short).
I really like the look and feel of the station. It's very formal, well-built, and looks and feels nice.
The package appeared as though it had been opened when it arrived. Perhaps this was used? If so, the product should be labeled as such.
What I like most about it is that it's trivial to remove and re-insert the N7 into the dock. My OG Nexus7 developed a crack in the screen and it was too distracting to read books or surf the web on it.
But it makes an *outstanding* Media Center remote control!
The problem I had was that having the N7 plugged into the charger cable made it a nuisance to use as a TV-Satellite-DVR-GoogleTV remote. All that wearisome plugging and unplugging. Who needs all that? (That's a first-world problem, for sure!)
This dock solves that problem. Just snatch the N7 up and channel-surf to one's heart's content.
As a bonus, the N7 now also serves as a spiffy desk-clock while not being used as the media center remote. (Shout-out to Timely!)
I wish I could find an equivalent for the N7 FHD; I'd replace my bedside alarm clock / radio with the Nexus.
This is highly recommended!

A bit of a hassle to return. This is not convenient.
