1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, February 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The silicone material is very different from the fluoroelastomer material that genuine Apple Watch bands are made of. It picks up lint and dust very easily and is much stretchier. The connection with the watch was decent, but the band was slightly too wide at this point and it stuck out from both sides. All in all, not worth the money. Even if I received one for free I wouldn't use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for a good keyboard case, February 15, 2016
Disclosure: I received the item at a reduced price in return for a fair and reliable review based on my user experience.

Overall, the case did exactly what I expected it to. Here is my feedback organized by feature and function.

Keyboard:
*The dedicated iOS keys go a long way to making it more useful than a regular Bluetooth keyboard.
*The keypress feel is adequate but for longer typing sessions, it would need to be improved. When touch-typing, there is occasionally uncertainty if a key press registered. Better tactile feedback would be appreciated.
*Battery life appears to be great. A battery meter would be appreciated to know when to charge it.
*The Bluetooth connection was always reliable.

Case:
*Provides good protection for the iPad. Other cases are more protective but I don't think that's necessary for this one. I didn't ever drop the iPad while in the case but I believe it would be safe from most small drops.
*The fit and finish of the case and keyboard is quite nice, the iPad feels securely attached to it.
*The aesthetics are nice. The case looks right at home in a professional setting.
*The case is somewhat heavier than expected. With an iPad 3, it's only a few ounces lighter than a 13" MacBook Air. A weight reduction in future versions would be welcome.
*Using the iPad without the keyboard is somewhat compromised because it doesn't lay flat when opened and is not secured in any way. The iPad can rotate slightly when being used like this, which can be annoying. I would recommend taking the iPad out of the case if the keyboard isn't being used regularly.
*The hinge mechanism sticks out, adding extra thickness to the case. In practice, this wasn't a problem, but if you have a tight fit in a bag, this could be annoying.

iPad Stand:
*The variety of viewing angles and the ease of adjustment are terrific. I was always able to find a comfortable setting within seconds.
*The ability to use the iPad in landscape and portrait mode is great. It was surprisingly useful to use the keyboard with the iPad in portrait mode.
*The hinge and swivel connection appear to be extremely durable and work very smoothly.

Overall Impressions:
I gave it a ranking of 5 but realistically, it's a 4.5. The areas I noted above are not significant problems but are the difference between a good product and a great one. For the price, I think it would be very hard to find a better option. This is a very good keyboard case, and an excellent value. I could see this case being useful to students and professionals that would like to use their iPad as a laptop replacement. The keyboard with the dedicated iOS keys changes the way you interact with an iPad and make this a possibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best universal car mount available right now, July 22, 2013
Like many great inventions, the Airframe is seemingly simple. So much so that when you see it, you think "I could have come up with that". The only problem is, nobody did come up with it until Kenu invented it.

I've had it a short while but have already tried it in several different situations, including multiple rental cars, and it has always fit well. The small size and easy mount make it perfect for when you want to get your GPS app running and figure out how to get from the lot to your destination.

It's also very unobtrusive when the phone is not mounted and the workmanship and design help it to blend in to any modern vehicle.

I've tried a variety of different phone mounts, both universal and custom-fit and none have come close to the versatility, good looks and overall functionality of the Airframe. Yes, it's not inexpensive but that means it's not cheap either. This is a high-quality accessory and worth paying for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average headphones but water resistance is nice, April 29, 2013
These headphones do sound reasonably good although the bass is nearly nonexistent. Considering that you can buy Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones for less than $20 with amazing sound quality, it can be difficult to justify paying $80 for the PX 685i.

On the positive side, these are more durable, water resistant and have the sound/volume control with a microphone for use with your iPhone.

Be aware that comfort can be tricky. They don't go in your ear canal but they do apply pressure to your ears to hold them in place. I found them uncomfortable but that's more subjective and not considered in my rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect replacement for MacBook, June 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It was difficult to determine which replacement LCD to buy but I found a webpage that explained how to determine what model LCD is currently installed. In a terminal window run the following command:

ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

It will return something like this:

LP133WX1-TLA1
Color LCD

If it does, then this screen is an exact replacement. I installed mine last night and it is working great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap imitation of a quality watch tool, March 16, 2011
This review is from: SE Spring Bar Tool, 5in.
First things first:

Do not buy this tool.

It's poorly made and will break. For me, it happened the first time I tried to use it. The small fork tip is made of low-quality metal and the tip just snapped when I was trying to remove a spring bar. I'm very fortunate to have not scratched my watch. Learn from my mistake and do not be tempted by the low price.

It's important to note that this is a copy of a high-quality spring bar tool that is Swiss made. Bergeon sells a version with their name on it as the model 6111 even though they don't manufacture it, that's how good it is. If you can get your hands on one of those, you have what most consider to be the finest spring bar tool available. Of course, the $30-40 price tag is a bit of a pill to swallow but it sure beats scratching a watch that worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars. A small price to pay, as I now know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not needed often but sometimes nothing else will do, June 30, 2010
If all of your blades are in reasonable shape with no dings and you are planning to keep the same bevel on them, this stone doesn't really offer you much. For most of us with a DMT Aligner, this is probably not the case so stop reading and buy this stone.

If you're bad at following directions and are still reading, I'll elaborate.

Any type of ding at the edge of blade is going to require a pretty decent amount of steel removal. While you could do this with the coarse stone that comes with the Aligner it will take you an extremely long time and your hands will be sore afterwards. Ask me how I know.

The added coarseness of this stone makes that process significantly shorter. It still can take a while to grind past a large chip in the edge but what was a job to dread with the coarse stone is now merely a longer sharpening process vs. an undamaged blade.

This stone is also great for setting a new bevel. Sometimes we think (or is it know?) we're smarter than the knife manufacturers and want to set our own bevel. With the extra-coarse stone, that is amazingly quick and the results are outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to Aligner system, June 30, 2010
If you own a DMT Aligner, get this whetstone. You already know how well the Aligner works with the other stones and this extra-extra fine stone is no exception. Make sure you use it a lot to break it in. It works well out of the box but you won't really get the best performance until you break it in, just like with their other diamond stones.
