5.0 out of 5 stars This truly is the best battery case for the iPhone 5/S, June 29, 2014
This is an incredible battery pack. When you need extra power, this is my go to case. A number of reasons make this totally worth it. Overall it is far ahead of any other battery case on the market today. My top reasons for recommending this case:

1. Charges an iphone 5S over 125% (basically you get more than double battery life).
2. Case is as slim as the competition but with longer batter life
3. The best fit and finish bar none
4. Design enhances the sound from speaker
5. both straight and curved headphone jacks fit. In my case I use Denon music maniac headset as my default. Also have a Bose Quiet Comfort for travel and that too fits.
6. Very comfortable to hold and type - even better than a naked iPhone 5S.

3.0 out of 5 stars Everything that is wrong with HP, May 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Beautiful design and easy on the eye. Looks like home electronics should. The front display is very low quality. Will fail in a few months. Mine failed 3 times in a year! I just gave up.

Had great potential. But falls short in build quality in a big way.

Perfect for the desk to place your iPhone. It works as a practical and discreet stand. It is what it is. Good quality. Looks nice next to a MacBook or iMac.

Careful! This will leave a coating on the screen. If you put this on a big screen TV you have a long night ahead getting this off!!

Great for converting old iPhone/iPad docks into Bluetooth receivers. However, build quality on this is terrible. Mine came apart in a couple of months.

The lightening connector plug is too big and won't fit an iPhone with a case. Works with an iPad case though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solved my problem., May 31, 2014

Apple TV to Bose Wave Radio in my bedroom. Before this I had to go from Apple TV to TV (hdmi) and then headphone (TV) to Bose. The volume the old way was very low and I had to crank the Bose to close to max volume. This alleviates that problem to a great extent.

This set up now allows me to stream audio from my iPhone to the Bose using AirPlay and have my TV on as well. That is probably the biggest advantage. This DAC can make ANY mini stereo or even powered speaker system into an AirPlay receiver with the addition of an Apple TV.

Cheaper than what the dealer wanted. Hit a pot hole, bent rims, during the repair I lost a cap....these were cheaper for the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent remote, but has a hard time justifying cost at even $150., May 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall a very good product for a home theatre in a condo. My current set up includes a TV, a media center (Mac Mini), a Blu Ray disk player an Apple TV with a Bose Lifestyle system providing the audio. The Harmony 1100 works well - even with all my components hidden (I use an RF extender).

The set up did take me 3-4 tune ups to get it right. In that sense, the auto set up is a little more complicated than it is made out to be. In terms of overall functionality this is a solid universal remote. It is also well designed and built.

I upgraded from a Harmony 1000 that I have been using for 4-5 years. The Harmony 1000 had several glitches (well known) that could really throw off someone who is just used to working with electronics that 'just works'. However, with the price coming down for the 1100 so much I decided to give the 1100 a shot only because I like the form factor.

At $150-$165 this remote can be a decent value (although if you have an old iPad 2 you could install an app and add on hardware and it would be just as good if not better). That is the problem here. The Harmony is nowhere as responsive or has the ability to enter text to search (very common in today's video on demand systems like Apple TV or Media Center). An iPad or similar device is a 'true' one stop shop for a remote/key board/mouse. I have to use this + logitech mini dinovo keyboard. The listed price for both com nine is well north of $600! So value is a problem in my opinion.

The touch screen implementation isn't capacitive and scrolling through multiple screens can be slow. The UI is not modern at all. On the flip side my Harmony 1000 was going strong 5 years later!

Mouse works very well with a macbook Air. The pairing is easy, the connection is seamless. I really like this mouse.
