4.0 out of 5 stars
Useful accessory, 26 April 2011
I bought my Galacy Tab mainly for travelling. The desk dock is robust and provides a convenient and secure way to hold the tablet on a bedside table; so I can use and control the tablet easily as an internet radio, music player, alarm, etc. I can connect the audio output to travel speakers for improved sound. This convenience, as well as preventing the tablet from sliding off a small bedside table and for overnight charging, is worth the cost for me.
Tested the HDMI output and it worked fine with my Sony TV; but video only and a "Samsung Movie" would not display. I have not yet had time to work out if these are problems with my set up or another movie industry restriction that frustrates the honest user. Poor show if Samsung provided the hardware but not the rights to show its movies on a larger screen - particularly if this feature contributed to the relatively high cost. Make sure you buy an HDMI lead with a mini connector (type C) to connect to the tablet.
Would have given it five stars if it was cheaper or cables were included. (It is this clear from the Amazon product page that they are NOT included.)
