    Got new Asus Dock, may have gotten used one instead...

    I bought the dock off Amazon a few days ago for $125. It was direct from Amazon and not from any of the reseller so I expected a brand new one. I got it in today, one of the 2 security sticker was off the box and inside the box there was a keyboard, manual, and tray. Nothing else, was there supposed to be anything? The dock had nearly full charge and a PNY class 10 32GB SD card inserted. There seems to be nothing wrong with the dock so it may have been a return that got passed off as new by mistake.

    The dock does not have battery drain issue, it doesn't wake from keyboard. So anything to be watchful? Or do I keep my mouth shut and keep a free $50 memory card?

    If it's working fine then I would keep it and chalk the SD card up as a bonus. Try this, not sure it will work. Go to ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- and try to register the KB. See if it comes up as already regestered.

    The last time I complained to Amazon that they sent me a used item when I bought it new, they offered me 10% back. That was more than 6 years ago. I don't know what is their policy now - they may ask you to send it back and send you a new one (possibly to avoid having people fraudulently report that they received a used item).

    You're not missing anything from the box. I'd keep the dock and memory card. But I recommend formatting it first, then running h2testw on it to verify that it is good.

    I would keep the 32GB card, call and tell them that the security seals on the box were broken and see if they can do anything for you, such as giving you a discount, or sending a new one.

    I would consider it a good day and skip the return. Too much hassle even if they do take it back. Unless it has a problem!

    h2testw didn't find any issue so it's probably a moron who bought it (maybe with tablet too), then decided he didn't like it and returned them but forgot to check the SD slot.

    maybe someone testing that dock and left his/her sd i noticed that the s/n of the tf and dock are just cheap stickers that's easy to tamper with. ugh. are the s/n stickers on the dock intact? you may have a problem with warranty if it's not there.
