Well the other thing is I don't think it's the dock that's the actual problem anyway. I actually think it is the connector on the tablet. Early on a lot of us figured that out by plugging in our usb cable to the computer (into the tablet directly without the dock attached) and tapped on the connector plugged into the tablet. It was very sensitive and disconnected on the slightest touch. That's why you see a bunch of people saying they tried 4 or 7 different docks and complain that all docks are bad. it's not the docks, it's the connector on the tablet and people are assuming it's the dock.
Anyway, I do have disconnects when moving my tablet around while attached to the dock, but my point was that in practice, it doesn't really effect my daily work because when I'm doing work (even in bed), you usually open up the tablet and start typing, you're really not swinging it around while docked or typing while walking or constantly adjusting screen position.
So I also agree that there's lots of happy customers that don't notice the disconnects because of the "In practice" it's not really noticeable thing. It happens, it's just not interfering with Dock work. But People who notice tend to be the most vocal.
I love mine disconnects and all
