    Anyone know what the price of these are going for now? I would like to get one to play with and use for school but I can't justify anything over 150$.

    Jeez you just missed the $79 sale on march 30th... but i'm sure if you search around and give it some effort you can find a new one for under $129

    How can you tell for sure what the one on Ben's Outlet is? The only model number they give maps to a radar detector when you google it.

    The model name confirms... bionic lapdock... if it was another it would say motorola lapdock 500 or 100 and i'm sure they would market it that way as they could sell more units... also the set of photos match the one i have... i don't think there is any confusion that this is the right model... but i dunno where they got that model number unless it's their own stock number

    EDIT: I just read my user guide and the model is Motorola lapdockâ„¢ for droid bionic... i don't think the Ben's model number means anything

    Does the Bionic fit into the lapdock with the extended battery and case, or do they have to be removed first?

    It fits with the OEM extended battery and cover... actually fits a lot better... more solid because of the contact... not so wobbly

    Yes, I got mine Friday 4/20, ordered 4/10. Looks good, I haven't had a chance to play with it much yet, but seems to work well.

    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.
