    I got the cheap one (Like the bacon-eating, atheist Jew I am) :D

    I don't think it looks bad at all!

    It feels solid, has nice shiny sides and works fine.

    The Samsung one looks to me a bit over-complex... But I guess that is down to personal preference...

    My one is only

    Is it sufficiently stable?

    It looks like a slight wobble of the desk would see it flat on its back.

    I've got the cheaper one too (and no I'm not a cheapskate lol)

    IMO it is fine.. though being a bit paranoid about my lovely phone I dont use the dock as I think it could be heavier in an ideal world. Not to say it would fall over though it feels like it should have more weight lower down.

    I have the cheaper one to. I think its fine, seems heavy enough to me. Would need a good push to knock it over anyway.

    I'm not given to being careless so I think I shall try the cheaper eBay one and see how it goes.

    BTW I saw the Samsung one on eBay for

    You would think they would make the official Dock compatible with the official case wouldn't you.

    Don't see the point if you have to take the case off to use it.

    I'd wait few months until the SGS2 is available worldwide. Surely There will be more choices then and it will be cheaper. Remember its not released in US yet.
