This is a good price if you're in the market for a second dock, i.e., you have 2 TVs that you want to move between without hassle, like living room and bedroom.

Personally I backed the covert dock on Kickstarter, which is more geared at being small and easy to transport, and then set up quickly at a new temporary location.
Wish it was a little cheaper.

^^ Insignia dock user here. Its been great and is perfect for travel since it is under half the size of the original dock.

Highly recommend the Insignia dock.
I have one of these as well, and it is currently my main dock. It works great.

I did the same thing. Seems like they did their homework on designing it - check out the Kickstarter page for more info

Here's the link to the pre-order page for those interested:

I lug my switch around to get together soon alot and being able to fit everything into my Mumba case is what I've been hoping for

I, myself, would never trust a third party dock after those Switch frying incidents, that can be Googled, a while back (this is just my comment, not up for debate with whoever pops in and is satisfied with their third party dock, to each their own).

I would get the Official dock at the Target clearance price, if possible, and this $14 case https://www.amazon.com/BASSTOP-Po...B071YVC3NJ to shrink it down, if I was interested in it being a smaller size.
What a ludicrous comment that misinforms. If you or anyone actually googled the issue, you'd understand this issue existed very early on and the docks that fried Switches are long gone at this point (or reviewed so badly you'd be a fool to purchase).

If you are seriously worried about frying your switch just get a third party dock that requires the nintendo ac adapter. I don't know how passthrough power could fry it, I am assuming those early ones that sent too much power to the unit were using their own power cord.

You could be 99% correct on that. But once the idea has tarnished consumers from trying others, it's hard to turn it around. Whether it's Nintendo or the 3rd party's fault. Just like Seagate hard drives. I've only owned 2 and both failed within 2 years. On the flip side, 23 WDs and all still working. Oldest one is from 2005. So you can't be mad at people like me staying away from Seagate with my data. Or in this case, a $300 Switch with all their saved progress.

I mean this is a deal site on the internet so your comment is absolutely going to be up to debate regardless of your disclaimer. Especially if it misleads others into thinking all third party docks will fry their switch.

But I do agree with you, Google and you will get the right information on which docks to avoid.
Mentioning an issue that happened is NOT misleading, especially when saying it was a while back and suggesting Google. And, yes, no, my comment is NOT up for debate because I, personally, don't and won't trust third party docks for that reason.

The only thing ludicrous is your lack of reading comprehension. I, clearly, mentioned the issue that happened *A WHILE BACK*!!!!!!!! is the reason I won't touch a third party dock.

Any that wants to take their chances should do their research, which is why I mention Google.

Omg, yes!

So many gamers have lost hundreds or thousands of hours of Splatoon 2 for different reasons. Whether it's sending it in for repair or otherwise. Pokémon Sw/Sh and Animal Crossing are going to get interesting. Glad I'm modded, so I can back up ALL of my saves, lol....

That's fair. It may interest you to know that the cause of the Switch frying incidents (not fully implementing the spec to save on parts) has been diagnosed and specifically accounted for in the design of the covert dock. It was the first question I had as I was looking at it, and I'm satisfied enough that they know what they're doing.
I don't think you're right. There issue is that Nintendo didn't follow the spec themselves. Docks that followed the spec faired no better than the docks that didn't follow it

You saying your comment is not up for debate is like a child covering their ears because they don't want to hear a response. You chose to come on this public forum and spread your misguided fear and misinform people by only giving them part of the story. Yes you said it could be googled and it should be, but that doesn't mean your misguided conclusion of not trusting 3rd party docks isn't terrible.

Totally understand why you don't trust Seagate, but there are far more examples of Seagate HD's crashing and that's one particular brand. Others coming in to say ALL 3rd party docks are a risk is just uninformed and irresponsible.

"BrickSeek is a third party application. Retail stores will not honor inventory or pricing discrepancies between their store and BrickSeek." I've never used Brickseek so this might be a dumb question but how do you get the deal if stores don't honor the deal? lol

Fair enough. Yeah, I wouldn't discourage people from trying other docks. Especially when it's 50% cheaper than the official. But you can't say the fear isn't there with some.
