Good item which does the job it promises to do.
UPDATE JULY 2012
This product is still performing 100% well. The connection it makes with the Playbook is still completely positive and dependable. I have no gripes at all.
Still highly recommended
UPDATE MAY 2013
And nearly 2 years on, this simple and effective charger is still used daily, and still works as well as it did on day 1.
Can't beat Blackberry manufacturing quality.
UPDATE MARCH 2015
Approching four years on and working as well and looking as good as it did when I first got it. In fact I bought two more, one for my other half and one for the bedroom. They are all in daily use and doing fine. Very sold but of kit.
Offically the best Dad in the world!
Being OEM it is well made though I've withheld one star as it can be easy to not sit the Playbook correctly for charging / dislodge the Playbook from the charging pins as the Playbook simply rests on the stand.
Another thing for prospective purchasers to note is that you cannot use this item at the same time as the 'OEM BlackBerry PlayBook Faux Leather Convertible Case' as whilst the latter provides access to the ports on the bottom of the Playbook it is too thick for it to go in the stand.
As for people saying this holds it at the perfect angle... That's impossible at all times. If you're sitting on a low desk with a high chair, it's not going to be 'perfect', and likewise with other various positions. However, I've no complaints about this, as it's never really a big problem.
Another advantage is it's magnetic connection with the Playbook, which gives less wear and tear to the USB socket (although the socket should take around 10,000 connections, it's always nice to know).
As for peoples complaints about it only being available in horizontal mode... You don't say so? Also, inaccessibility to other adapters is pretty obvious to pick up before you buy it.
All in all, a pretty good buy.
I read somewhere online about someone suggesting the rapid charger. I saw it on Amazon for about £12 and thought, 'what the heck, otherwise the playbook might as well go in the bin'. It works great, charges the battery quickly and is a useful stand for setting it in the kitchen on the work top. I would recommend it.
I wonder how many products get a 5-STAR Review after 3 years constant usage!
If you "still" have a Blackberry Playbook, which I do and again that works brilliantly after 3 years, then this is the PERFECT Charger base for it.
You will at some time will need a charger base for the Playbook as if you haven't already found the USB Charger port is one of the first things to Fail on the Playbook. Which is one reason why a lot of people stop using the playbook.
But, get yourself a Blackberry Charger, and your Playbook will spring back to LIFE!!!
I have now used 5 different Tablet devices, but I still keep on using the Playbook, as in my mind its has one of the BEST operating systems for using a tablet - Android is now far too messy to use, whereas QNX OS is so simple.
