Rated 5 out of 5 by jollyhipolito Great purchase!
I've had a few Sony phones now, and always wanted a charging dock. Finally got this for my Sony Xperia Z1. It works great, just like any other charger, and convenient such that you don't have to open the protective water resistant flaps (not much of a hassle in the first place in my opinion).
The magnet is strong enough to keep the phone locked in place. At first I had an issue because when I did dock the phone, it attached but didn't charge. I figured out that it wasn't docked on properly (had to shift it to one side or the other so that it's correctly in place).
Length of the charging cable is long enough for my desk setup.
Pros: Stated above
Cons: wish it was heavier or gave a more sturdy feeling. The lightweight and plastic build gives it a cheap quality item. Ships in as a USB connector, you need the phone charger (purchased separately) to plug this in. The instructions say not to plug it in laptops to charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by null Great product for a great phone
I've had every flagship sony phone since the Ion, and every dock for those phones as well. The Ion, TL, Z, and now the Z1. I would say that this dock is not only stylish but necessary for ease of use. It's very sturdy and well built. However, the cord included is only a couple feet long so I had to reconfigure my setup. Also, the bottom of the dock is not as sticky as i would like and I had to tape it to my desk actually to prevent it from moving around. All in all, this dock is a great add-on to a perfect phone.

Now my phone charges faster and with great ease. This will save a lot of wear and tear on the phone flaps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoubleA Best Budget BT Headphone
Best value for money you're going to get here. Even though the driver is only 30mm, you won't miss any beat. I'm pairing it with tablet Z and it has so far exceeded all my expectations. Fantastic sound quality, the battery charge goes on for days and days and days.
The only thing that you'll notice is that being on-the-ear type, these tend to cause a little discomfort when used for a longer duration but this can be overlooked for the quality and features you're getting for around a 100 bucks.
There's no doubt that MDR-1RBT will beat this by a mile in both comfort and sound quality but then it comes with a hefty price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TennisChick Easy peasy!
The charging dock eliminates the need to open and close the flap door each night. Plus it's also really quick and easy to just slide the phone right in. Sometimes, it's the little things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDCrzr Another amazing product from Sony. Super easy to use and you don't have to mess with the flap for the usb. It also charges quicker than the usb, taking about 3-3.5 hours to charge from <10% to 100%. It's steep, but well worth the price. It also works for the Xperia Z1s from tmobile.
