Actually not bad.
And Doc, if you mean it is a simple dock without speakers, you can for example choose almost any on dealextreme.com
For example, I use this, no problem never arose.

Better than the native dock from the original iPhone (the first, which is still 2G) I have not seen. It's easy go all models (up to 4s, inclusive, tested), beautiful, heavy, with rubber backing. On eBay took home another$12.

I have this here and charging, and hub, and card reader. I have a iPod Classic 60GB in the wife, iPod Nano 5th, on the farm iPhone 4 and 3GS, and all easy to sit.
