    I bought the dock when I bought the Prime, but I could have saved some money by using the very good, foldable, 5-row bluetooth keyboard that I already own. I very much like the dock keyboard, much more for its SD and USB slots than for its puny battery, but it _is_ quite costly and I can understand why someone would go for a BT keyboard if all they want is a keyboard. Particularly if they have one already..

    Well a BT keyboard does work... I read an article last year quoting an Asus executive who stated 80% of Transformer owners also bought the keyboard dock - which took them by surprise. It really is a popular "accessory".

    Them's fightin' words....(Just kidding ) my dock battery lasts about 6 hours -- don't know what qualifies as puny. Care to elaborate good sir??
    With tablet and dock combo 14-15 hours is the norm. [No not Norm from Cheers..)

    Thanks all for your comments. I do not disagree with those who said the whole reason for getting the TFC00T was the dock; however, I got mine as a gift .......and since I'm on social security the cost of the dock is a hardship for me, even at Amazon's current price of $102. Also, there is no screen protector that will work with the dock, so when not using the dock I'm back to extreme finger prints and reflection. Also, I've read many of the posts where people with the dock have ended up with a cracked screen (which I also cannot afford to deal with); although some say they may have contributed to the problem in their insertion of the dock. I also understand that the dock does not sit level on a flat surface which is another issue for me. Related to increased battery life, I don't much care since I'm almost always in a situation where I can plug in the charger when necessary (and I have a very long cable). I usually plug it in if I'm doing anything which may require significant time (watching long movies, etc.) As I said, thanks again.

    The One Top Cat-

    Makes absolute sense.

    Different folks have different needs. I travel a fair amount, and having a keyboard, extra battery, SD slot and USB all in one easy to carry bundle that slips as one piece into my smallish leather bag is a huge plus. Your requirements are different, and that's what matters.

    It's best to march to the beat of your own drum.

    Before I received my dock for Christmas this year, I had purchased a bluetooth keyboard and an adjustable case (one with the ridges so you can adjust the tilt of the screen). I used velcro on the 4 corners of the keyboard to make my own "keyboard" case since there wasn't one available for my tablet. I also put little gel dots on the corners of the keyboard to keep it from scratching the screen of the tablet. This worked very well and even though I now have the docking station and a case which supports both tablet and dock, I still find that when I'm just going to the local coffee house or something like that where I will have a WiFi connection and may just want to do a quick search of something, that the bluetooth is still the one I choose simply because it is less bulky.
