4.0 out of 5 stars the Keyboard is excellent, I had zero problems setting up, June 13, 2015
For general use, the Keyboard is excellent, I had zero problems setting up, pairing to the tablet, and using it. Standing up felt a bit more secure than the Logitech case.

The ONLY gripe I have is a minor one, and that's the fact that the case only goes in one way. That's right, if you want to use this keyboard case with the tablet screen facing away from you, it will fall out instantly. Clipping into the case with the screen in the case does work as planned, and I guess they figure that people don't need a case when the Tablet is in use.

The only reason I stuck with the Logitech case is because you can use the tablet while in the case, although adding quite a bit of weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars The phone is an amazing piece of tech, if you can afford it you won't regret it, January 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am known as the tech whore at my work, I seem to be the first to the dance with every new shiny device that actually means something. People were amazed at the size of my Nokia Lumia 1520 when I got it in February, I'm the only one who comes to work with a Surface Pro 3(Previously a 2) or an iPad, why? So I can do work while at work, or play games to work on my Youtube channel.

I got my phone on Friday, bought the Samsung Galaxy Gear S to go along with it. Needless to say, EVERYONE I showed both devices to, were majorly impressed, from iPhone users, to Galaxy Note 3 and S5 users, to people with low-mid range smartphones.

I am not going to pay into the stupid leasing options for a phone, and a 2 year contract raises my bill by $25, meaning I have to buy a phone at full price, the most efficient option. Now, on the watch, I paid $199 with a 2 year contract, that doesn't affect my 30GB Mobile Share plan from AT&T.

The phone is beautiful, that sidebar is a great invention. You can customize it(Think windows taskbar, to about 7 items on screen, with more you can drag down, you can also put folders on that sidebar)

Other sidebar features(You can put 7 on at a time)
Yahoo Sports(Very useful, you'll get a scrolling marquee of your favorite teams
Phone/Contacts/Messaging/Internet/Camera(All of your favorite highly used apps, customizable)
Temperature/Missed Calls/Emails
Step Tracker(If you don't have an SHealth Widget active)
A panel showing all of your active applications(Downloaded, EdgeTaskMaster)
A panel that has all of your web bookmarks
Yahoo Finance
Yahoo News
Memory Match(Think Simon kinda, with images you have to remember in a pattern)
Ram usage
Data usage
CNN Breaking News(Downloaded)

Tiny Word
Bended LOL(Edge)
Tiny Burger

Please look forward to official store opening soon

Now, the Samsung Galaxy Gear S watch, this is a piece of tech that is designed to make wearable bands obselete, why? YOU CAN TEXT AND MAKE CALLS FROM THE DEVICE, WITHOUT A PHONE! There are several apps that are optimized for the phone, you can transfer music from your Galaxy Note 4/Edge devices to the watch, there is an Opera Mini Browser, so you can browse the web on your watch. Step tracker, customizable wallpapers, and other neat features. I called my boss at work from my watch! How many managers have told you to get off your phone? Now, they will be telling you to stop playing with your watch. Find a watch that can make calls.

It all depends on your budget, if you have between$650(Contract), or $1,150(Phone full price, watch contract or up front) to spend, you're going to get two pieces of tech you will love for years.

I've only had both devices for two days, and I regret nothing. A lot of people will be turned away by the price, and that's understandable. It feels good in your hand, and not too bad typing with one hand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smart As, New Little King's Story, October 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PlayStation TV (Video Game)
So for anyone who owns or is on the fence about a Playstation TV, getting mine earlier tonight, I wanted to share a list of compatible features at launch.

You CAN use Music Unlimited, Crunchyroll, Crackle and LiveTweet
YOU CANNOT go on Facebook, Youtube, Skype, niconico, Netflix, NHL GameCenter, Redbox Instant, or Hulu Plus at launch, big fail.
You cannot use Treasure Park, Wake-Up Club, Colors!, Paint Park Plus, iFruit, Tunein Radio, Paint Park

Games that ARE compatible that I own at launch:
Dragon's Crown, The Walking Dead Season 1, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time(With a Patch), Rayman Origins, Tales of Innocence R(Japanese Import), Persona 4 Golden, Valhalla Knights 3, Ragnarok Odyssey and ACE, Muramasa Rebirth, Dead or Alive 5+, Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Demon Gaze, MLB 14 The Show, Final Fantasy X/X2 HD, Rainbow Moon, Dragon Fantasy Book 1 and 2, God of War Collection, Killzone Mercenary(With a Patch), Zombie Tycoon II, Plants vs Zombies, Pure Chess, Germinator, Foosball 2012, Earth Defense 2017 Portable, Dead Nation, Knytt Underground, The Pinball Arcade, Zen Pinball 2, Retro City Rampage, Titan Attacks!, PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD, Treasures of Montezuma Arena

Games that are NOT compatible that I own at launch:
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Unit 13, Jak and Daxster Collection, Lumines Electronic Symphony, Resistance Burning Skies, Wipeout 2048, MLB 12 The Show, Spy Hunter, Y's Memory of Celceta, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus 2, Dynasty Warriors Next, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Assassin's Creed Liberation, LittleBigPlanet PSVita, ModNation Racers, Dungeon Hunter Alliance, Little Deviants, Disgaea 3 Absence of Detention, Silent Hill Book of Memories, Soul Sacrifice, Hot Shots Golf World Invitational, Mortal Kombat, Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, Reality Fighters, Street Fighter X Tekken, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, Real Boxing, Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified, Borderlands 2, Smart As, New Little King's Story, Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, Fruit Ninja, Ecolibrium, Hustle Kings, Motorstorm RC, Tales From Space Mutant Blobs Attack, Uncharted Fight For Fortune, Playstation Home Arcade, Super Stardust Delta, StarDrone Extreme

Also, there are three resolution models, 480p, 720p, and 1080p. Games DO look much better on the Playstation TV than on the Vita. The Vita also handles remote play at 30FPS, there is NO PS3 Remote Play, even though that was pretty much non-existant.

You can use both Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 Controllers, a huge plus if you don't own a PS4 yet, but want to try out some PSVita games.

Finally, you CANNOT hook Elgato up to the Playstation Vita TV, even though it has an HDMI port, I have not tested a Component splitter, but I know that Elgato is not usable on the Vita, more than likely to prevent copying movies. So, Katsukity's Capture Card service is still a viable choice to be able to record game footage from your Vita

That being said, is the Playstation TV a good buy? If your main TV is constantly tied up, and you want to hook this up to another TV to play PS4 games, then absolutely. If you own a Vita and hate sharing your system, this is a no brainer. If you want to play Vita games with friends, stay away. If you are big on apps, stay away, there are almost none unless you are addicted to Crunchyroll. Granted the device is new, and like the Playstation Vita when it was first released, expect both games and apps to be patched to work. Check the store weekly for updates.

It is up to the developers to enable support for the Playstation TV, having three good fighting games(Mortal Kombat, Injustice Gods Among Us, and Street Fighter X Tekken) currently unusable, hurts when the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet supports all three assuming your PC can run Gamestream.

Consider the Playstation TV, Remote Play 2.0, with big screen TV support. Because aside from about 40% of the Vita's game catalogue, currently, this is where you are going to get the most use from this. And that's if you can stomach playing games at 30FPS.

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 (Video Game)
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.

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)

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
