Any one receive one from Bens Outlet? They're down to $89.99, still free shipping. I couldn't resist and ordered one.
Ordered one on 4/8 from Ben's Outlet and received it on 4/21. Been messing with it for the past few days. In fact typing this post with it now. Takes some getting used to but seems like a pretty nice device.

I just got mine from Ben's Outlet. This thing looks pretty cool but is there a way to get it to work using safestrap and rooted phone or is onlt the bionic bootstrap that allows the phone to work correstly in the lapdock?

one thing i would stay away from... based on experience but i'm not 100% sure about
i broke my first two lapdocks within a month with heavy use and i think this was the situation
your Bionic battery is half dead.... your lapdock battery is also low... so you pop your Bionic into the lapdock and it's charging off the dock... and you plug in the dock so it's charging off the wall charger... then you proceed to do your thing with the dock... browsing, texting, streaming youtube videos or whatever... reach around the back of the screen where the usb ports are and feel how hot it's getting after 15 minutes or so... i feel like that was the thing this dock can't handle... it gets roasting hot trying to handle all the power requirements... i mean REALLY hot... like the dashboard of your car on a hot summer day...
so anyway i've stopped doing that with this last lapdock i got around thanksgiving time and it's been goin like a champ since then... i try to make sure the lapdock is charged at night so when i use it during the day it doesn't have to be plugged in and that seems to keep the heat down... it still gets pretty warm trying to charge the bionic battery but nothing like how it will if the dock is plugged in trying to charge both batteries at the same time
I got mine for $80. So far I love it. People complain about the keyboard size but they fail to realize that the phone's on screen keyboard is way smaller.
I do have one issue. When I quote on forums it will turn the quote number into a telephone number with a link. Weird.
