Manvex Leather Case for the Microsoft Surface Pro 1 and 2 - Red/Black
Manvex Leather Case for the Microsoft Surface Pro 1 and 2 - Red/Black
Offered by Cosmo Gadgets
Price: $31.95

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite cases for a Surface Pro 2, June 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First off, if I could give this case a 10 Star rating, or a 20/10 rating, other than drop durability(Otterbox cases or Ballistic will always do a better job), I would do it in a second for this case. It's the PERFECT folio case for a Surface.

While the Surface Pro 2 Type/Touch Covers, or the Type Covers from the original Surface Pro/Surface/Surface 2, do an amazing job covering the front, this is a folio case that does a great job protecting the entire device and also giving a little bump protection from drops(Not that you would want to drop a $2,000 device)

The Type Cover snaps into the bottom, but you have to put the tablet in first. The great thing is the bottom of the case has a velcro, to firmly keep the device closed, even if you grab the Surface by the keyboard. The stand works very well that is built into the case, not requiring you to use the stand the Surface Pro 2 provides.

This case has access to all of the ports, the only time you will ever need to take the Surface out of the case, is if you use the Docking Station, which does NOT work with this case(But, why do you need a case while it's docked?)

Screen protectors, are no issue as well. There are circular holes on the top, that allow air to circulate. The Charging port and Mini Display port on the right are still accessible, and you can still use various 4 in 1, 2 USB adapters without issue, none of the ports are blocked. Access to the Micro SD card slot is unblocked.

Another awesome feature, there is a little flap that can also keep the Surface firmly closed, and unable to be opened. Slap your Arc Touch Mouse underneath, and you never have to worry about misplacing it.

If you are looking for a great folio case that gets the job done, and secures the Surface Pro 2, much like the Adesso Folio cases for the iPad, I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 128GB card works in quite a few newer devices. A great value at $119.99, March 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased 2 128GB SD cards, one for my Nokia Lumia 1520, and another for my Surface Pro 2, both devices took the card without any issues.

As for read/Write speeds, I am sure there are better options, but this is the only 128GB Micro SD card available right now, and Sandisk did an amazing job with the product.

And currently at $119.99(For how long, I am not sure), it's a great deal, considering a lot of the good SD cards are in the $140 range still.

No issues with either card unmounting itself, put them in, transfer files, and you're good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great easy to use device, December 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Comcast wifi is known to have some issues with the Wii U Wi-Fi, this device clears it up nicely. The signal booster works great and even wired you can have two devices anywhere in the house, wired instead of just one. Setup is painless and it even comes with a stylus for the touch screen.

I took a chance on this product as I was hoping to fix the wireless issues in my house, and even with a router in my room, it's still useful if you have a device struggling with Wii U wifi, setup is as stated in the description of the item.

The only thing I would kill for, is more ethernet ports, but if you are only connecting a TV and a computer, or a laptop/desktop, this is plenty.

2.0 out of 5 stars This game is worth $20 tops, December 2, 2013
First off, the game does look like a lot of fun and 4 player local play looks like an amazing party feature, the problem is, I received the game FREE on my iOS devices on the game of the week earlier this year, other than 20 levels and co-op multiplayer, this game isn't worth $49.99 at the time of this review. You can get this on PC for $7.99 and 3DS for $19.99, a much more reasonable price, and $29.99 on the Vita. Are we going to have to wait until Black Friday 2014 for the game to be offered at the price it deserves to be, like Angry Birds on the Wii for 15 bucks at Walmart?

Stop ripping customers off, ROVIO would not do this, Activision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for broadcasting on Twitch, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PlayStation 4 Camera (Accessory)
For those of you that remember the Playstation Eye, this is a major improvement, and now it can be used for more than Playstation Move games, now you can use the camera for Live Streaming on Twitch, video Chat, and the microphone is much better as well.

The additional bonus is that unlike Kinect, it is NOT required to use the game console.

There are voice commands you can use with the Playstation 4 as well.


WWE 2K14: The Phenom Edition

3.0 out of 5 stars A minor improvement over WWE 13, but the Phenom Edition is overpriced $20, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I give the game 4 stars, however shame on WWE2k for ripping customers off with the Phenom Edition extras, which makes the value of this lose a star.

WWE 2K14 is NOT going to dazzle players it's basically the same as WWE 13 as far as gameplay goes, a big negative is they took out Create an Entrance. A big positive is the fact that a lot of the unlockable wrestlers are well received and haven't been in WWE video games in a while, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Razor Ramon/Scott Hall, Yokozuna. The thing about Wrestling is a lot of us have been fans for 20-30 years, so it's great to see Attitude Era, New Generation superstars being used.

The extras are worth about $20, not 40, you get a metal coffin which is kinda cool, you get a random Undertaker's Deadliest Matches Blu Ray disc in a sleeve(That you more than likely already own), a signed card by the Undertaker, and a controller Decal plus a download for the American Badass Undertaker. Like Stone Cold's alternate attire, entrance, it's very good, however, the value of this should be $79.99 tops. At least when THQ put Collectors Editions of WWE 12 and 13 out, they only charged $10 more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit pricey, the Camera has no flash so it needs a lot of light, but the usual extras are good and the Camera case is well made, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For what you get, the item is worth about $150, not $200.

While the case that comes with the camera is well built, the camera has to be held at a certain angle, there is nothing to view your image(so you have to play with this a little bit), and you have to put the micro SD card in upside down(Label facing down), you can use up to 32GB Micro SD cards in here

On a positive note, the camera does come with some attachments so you can use the camera in different situations(On a helmet, on a bike, and even in the shower)

Like always, I have appreciated the Steelbook and the Soundtrack offerings from Call of Duty, and like Infinity Ward did with Modern Warfare 3, Hardened and Prestige Editions come with a Season Pass($50)

Stars:
1 for the Steelbook/Soundtrack
3 Stars for the game, it's not as good as Modern Warfare, 2, 3, or Black Ops II
0 for the Camera, while it is a decent camera, you do need a lot of light and it can be difficult for newbies to use.
-1 for the price, the actual value is about $150

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny and built well also., November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The surge protector is well built, without a home line I could care less about the telephone connectors. I especially love the fact that they made the surge protector with 6 annoying outlets, and 6 basic ones when they don't use bricks in devices power supply outlet.

The build is very good, and you can't beat the price, just over 16 bucks I paid

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Playstation 4, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this for my Playstation 4, to convert a signal from HDMI to Component, so I can use Elgato GameCapture AV with it, and it works perfectly. Those of you who are Youtube partners, or do videos, until they remove the HDCP restrictions, get this.

Mediabridge Component Video Cables with Audio (6 Feet) - Gold Plated RCA to RCA - Supports 1080i
Offered by Mediabridge Products, LLC
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable and excellent cables, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Build quality is much higher than I expected, cables are much thicker and durable than the picture presents, and works perfectly with Kanex Pro to convert my Playstation 4 signal into Component so I can do game recording. If I ever go to a friend's house and they don't have an HDMI connection, these are top notch, highly recommended. As much as I love Amazon products, I always buy Mediabridge when possible as you cannot beat their build quality.
