    Just got my 950XL on the $200 off sale at the MS store.
    Wasn't able to get the display dock because they were out of stock.
    Looking for the following accessories:
    -Rugged/Heavy Duty Case, preferably with a kick stand
    -Cheaper alternative to the display dock (USB-C hub with USB, HDMI and Ethernet)
    -small Bluetooth keyboard
    -affordable Bluetooth mouse
    -USB-C desk dock
    -wireless charging pad or stand
    -car mount (with or without NFC and/or Qi charging)

    Also first hand experiences with the MOZO back covers would be appreciated as well!
    Thanks in Advance!!!

    In the same boat as you with the display dock. I ended up getting mine from AT&T. They currently are selling it for $60

    https://www.att.com/accessories/spec...lumia-950.html

    Well...$59.50. I guess this only helps if you're in the US.

    I can't really help with much else. The Mozo covers are nice, but in one of the stickies here I saw people mentioning that they don't really hold up after a while and the leather starts peeling and cracking. For the price of their covers, that was kind of a showstopper for me. I went with a this one:

    I've always used Otterboxes on my phones. Since they don't make one for the 950XL this was kind of a no-brainer. I guess I'll find out in a couple days if it's going to work out.

    I have two different Mozo charging backs, the brown leather and the Zebra wood ones. I've had the leather one for nearly a year or so and the zebra wood one for a few months. No issues with either. If you want a case for your 950xl don't get a Mozo. The Mozo is not the same size as the stock back so your case may not fit over it. And why get a Mozo if you're just going to cover it?

    Advice against tempered glass screen protectors. Picked up a few.none adhere to the corners of the screen. Turns out lots of reviews online say the same thing. It has to do with the shape of the screen at the corners.

    Congrats!

    These are the stuff I got for mine

    -Dock : Microsoft Display Dock. If you really want Ethernet, then get the j5create usb type c dock with*gigabit Ethernet. Not sure*ho well it works. Let us know if you do get one.

    -Case: rugged with kickstand

    -Storage: 128GB*micro xd

    -Keyboard: two of them. one with*built in touchpad, other is foldable. both are backlit and sturdy
    https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Illuminated-Living-Room-Internet-Connected-Bluetooth/dp/B00ZOPVSKW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1482622261&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+k830

    https://www.amazon.com/iClever-Backlight-Aluminum-Bluetooth-Smartphone/dp/B018K5EJCQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1482622344&sr=8-2&keywords=iclever+foldable+keyboard

    - Mouse: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Master-Wireless-Mouse-Computer/dp/B00TZR3WRM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1482622399&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+mx+master

    -Charger: I use hard wired charger. There are a lot*of them to choose from.*But I opted for*longer cords to allow me mobility and*more freedom. I do not like wireless charging because*you can't use the phone and charge at the same time. I tried wireless charging, but when the phone battery is low, it has to sit on the dock and I can hover over it while using it, or get a long cord and use it freely while charging. And with the case with kickstand, you can prop it up while using Continuum. Up to you friend.

    -Car*mount: Again I use just a mount without wireless charging. I got a 12volt USB*5-port hub for wired charging, and got*long charging cords for various*types of connector*f iPhone/iPad, Android, USB-C, etc. Here's a similar to what I got for my car. Charging is considerably faster*(by 5 times) via wired compared to Qi wireless charging.*Because of the quick charge feature. Something to think about.

    -Screen Protector: This is a sore subject as it's always hit or miss. There really is no consensus on which brand has no lifting corners issue. Or, you can always NOT USE ONE. More responsive touch without a*screen protector.

    -Battery*Bank: 30,000mAh by Aukey with USB-C and quickcharge feature. There are better ones now with an AC outlet too, but pretty spendy if you wanna also*charge*up, say, a*laptop.

    https://www.amazon.com/30000mAh-Portable-Charger-Outputs-Micro-USB/dp/B01F8IRIN0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1482623361&sr=8-1&keywords=aukey+30000mah

    -Audio gear: I love me some good sound. I picked up a*very good*pair of headphones. Audeze LCD-XC , and a DAC/AMP*Centrance HiFi M8 with XLR balanced audio to eliminate distortion and*noise at higher volume. FLAC audio never sounded so good. The DAC/AMP is portable! and acts as an emergency battery bank too!.

    -Monitor: any 1080P monitor will do really. I*got the LG 4K to share with my desktop for gaming and stuff.

    As always do your due diligence and research these products before you plunk down your hard earned cash. I can vouch*for these as I own them and use them daily. Your tastes will vary, so these are good starting points.*

    GL!
