I finally broke down and bought the dock stand that Acer puts out for the Iconia tablets. Amazon lowered it to $49 with free shipping so I ordered it. I am glad I did. The dock is very well built and has some weight to it. I would guess that is to keep it steady. And the remote is very responsive. I was surprised how well it works. The best part about it for me is the charging without having to fiddle with that tiny plug. You just sit it on the dock and leave it there. And while docked it can pan through your photos as a picture frame. Then there is the audio out function where you can leave it connected to your sound system for playing you music with remote access. So, if you want a nice way to display your Acer while it charges then this is a great device. I love it.
