    Figured people would want to see the ports on these things:

    Home dock:

    usb and hdmi connector, makes it a little trick to get it in, but it'll probably be easier over time.

    Back of the home dock, with HDMI out.

    Back of the car mount... only has the microusb connector. Pretty slick that you can put power into it though!

    Thanks for the pic! Did the desktop dock come with that wall charger?!? I ask because that one doesn't look like the one that came with the phone.

    Also I just bought a dock myself and I'm waiting on it.

    I wanted to like the desk dock but it's kind of a nuisance. You can't easily dock and undock your phone with one hand. I think I'm going to return it. It looks so pretty though...

    It's loosened over a few docks/undocks.

    The charger comes with the desktop dock!

    Because it would add $30 retail dollars to the "kit"? :D

    I still haven't had time to hook up the nav mount in the car... maybe tonight.

    The carmount feels a bit cheap, but it definitely has some great functionality...

    Really bummed the car mount doesn't have an aux jack but I still may pic one up. Either that or I'll just buy some magnets and stick it on my universal dock. :p

    I got both too. Still waiting the 24hrs for the cardock glue to dry. I like the way the car dock has an insert that you simply remove if you have a case on your phone. The multimedia dock however doesn't! I not taking my case of every night and theres no way this phone is going naked. It's really too bad that they didn't make this option. It's going back. Any other docks out there that'll fit a cased X?

    So I just got my Droid X and home dock today. How hard is it for you to put the phone in the dock. I find it very difficult like the connectors on the phone do not line up quite right with the connectors on the dock.

    With my wifes Droid and her dock you just place the phone in the dock and the weight of the phone is enough to make the phone attach to the dock.

    I am not sure if I have a defective dock or not.

    Mine is the same way... I"m thinking about returning... also like others have mentioned, would need to pull from case every time to dock...not something I"m excited about.

    I'm not going to take the phone out of the case every night to put it in the dock, that's for sure. So I guess the case and dock will be going back, and I'll be on the lookout for something that was designed with a bit of forethought.

    In the past day, putting the phone in the home dock has gotten easier. No where near as nice as the original droid and dock, but I assume that is because of the HDMI port.

    I am going to give it a week or so but I am leaning toward's keeping the dock.

    Just got the dock myself. I really like the look of it. Putting the phone in position takes a little bit of effort than say my old storm/dock. You also need both hands to take it off. Probably with practice, I'll be able to remove it with just one hand.

    The only thing that is really strange is the fact that since the farther right has the connectors, the further left part of the phone isn't connected to anything. If you budge it just a little bit, the left side moves easily. I'd get nervous if it ever gets knocked over and takes the connectors with it.

    Dock is not defective - The designers are. I take some liberty is assuming that you might have had or, have a BB dock, where you basically drop the phone into it and the two contacts on the back of the phone line up with the two contacts on the charger dock and wha-la? Connection.??

    This dock is is a two Handed BJ and a wrestling match to get it IN and OUT! IT SUCKS! - Droid should have had looked at the BB to steal an elegant design.
