Trident Case AEGIS for Samsung Galaxy S II (SGH-T989) - Retail Packaging - Green
Trident Case AEGIS for Samsung Galaxy S II (SGH-T989) - Retail Packaging - Green

5.0 out of 5 stars Military grade feel, December 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This case, first of all, is massive. it makes the phone twice as big and heavy. Even with the extra weight and size, the case is very comfortable to hold. The extra mass makes the phone feel more heavy duty, and the extra size makes it feel much easier to fit on the shoulder.

The edges have a little contour to them, and the rubbery sides and middle make it hard to slip off your shoulder / hand / dashboard / desk.

The very large cutout for the camera provides great protection, while not visibly shadowing or altering the quality of the photos taken. It also almost guarantees that you can set it down on it's back without scratching the lens.

The shape of the speaker cutout makes it into a small "boom box" by enveloping the speaker area with gel, and then setting the grille above that. It makes a small sound chamber (kinda like how Bose speakers work). The effect is a slight magnification of the sound produced, while at the same time making it slightly tinnier. Works well on speaker phone that way. And due to the shape, setting the phone on a flat surface will not block the port. I do not think this was intentional, but present none the less.

The sides of the case are good at enveloping the screen area. I do not feel bothered placing the phone face down on my desk to silence it.

The port covers seem to work well at keeping dust out, but I will not go so far as to say that I believe that they could stop any moisture.

As a final note, the color is very vibrant and nice. IT'S GREEN!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic survival kit, December 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although I am fairly displeased with Samsung for making a phone this day in age that requires a special charger, I was satisfied with the quality and price of this kit. All pieces are included for all your charging and data needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable, very clear, December 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered these screen protectors based on the reviews of the previous customers. I was not let down. As long as the screen is PERFECTLY CLEAN, they go down the first time, easy as pie.

I ruined the first one by attempting to remove and replace the protector. Be aware that when they are placed, they are relatively one use. If you do not get it straight and clean the first go, the protector will most likely not be usable. I used a little glass cleaner, a lint free cloth, and a credit card to get it on.

The screen protector is adhesive on one side for ease of placement, and is very clear and non-distracting. It covers the screen well, and goes almost to the edges. There is no rainbow hazing on the screen as a result of the protector being in place.

5.0 out of 5 stars My bird loves this toy, March 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this item online for my bird as a last minute addition to my cart. It just looked neat. After introducing it to my bird, I found that he was curious about it right away. I only had to hang it outside his cage for 5 minutes before he was hanging outside twirling the little mirrors around and ringing the bell. I went ahead and put it in and he was eagerly awaiting, not scared at all. This toy is now his second favorite, and seems to be made well. It has held up to abuse and daily play for over a month now, and no signs of stopping!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really neat device, August 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This device does what it advertises, and does a good job too. Will not support resolutions above 1024x768. The picture quality is clear and crisp. No jaggies, tearing, or artifacts. The sound syncs well and carries signal clearly. The device can be tricky to hook up if you aren't used to computer connections, but it is easy to figure out if you are patient, or know how to hook up a computer by heart. Comes with good instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great budget speakers, August 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered these speakers so I could have some basic sound for my movies. I was really surprised when I unpackaged these speakers, at how attractive and well made they appear. After installing and testing, I have found that these speakers are really good for their price. After some fine EQ tuning, I can get very loud, clear theater quality sound in 2.1. They really bring my movies and music alive, and perform like more expensive speakers. After six months of use, the speakers have broke in well and are even better sounding than when purchased. No wear at all detectable.

Pro's :

Excellent, clear sound from high to mid
Good, clear bass
sound "spreads" well, good sound locus
Seems not to carry next door well enough to tick the neighbors off.

Cons :

Bass distorts sometimes at heavy volume / dramatic movie sequences
No bass "feel" (all audio, no rumbly vibration sensations)


No Title Available

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough little pocket light, August 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I carry this flash light in my pocket at all times. It comes in handy that often. It is a well built, durable light with many useful features. The case is hard aluminum, with a recessed plastic lens. I have had the light in heavy service for about eight months, and in that time I have noticed that the light is getting dimmer and yellowish. It is possible that the LED is starting to burn out from heavy use.

Pros :

Batteries last a good while
glow button
multiple settings
Magnetic base is real useful
Rechargeable batteries are dirt cheap and available everywhere for this light
After eight months of use, the waterproofing seals and button cap are still fully intact
Takes regular abuse well

Cons :

Tactical face is good for cutting yourself and ripping clothes, not much else
After about eight months of use, light is getting dimmer, discolored

5.0 out of 5 stars Very complete package, January 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I received this cage for my little parakeet. The cage is fairly large and comfortable for 1 or 2 small birds. My bird got used to the new home right away, and seems to like the variety of entertainment provided.

Pros :

the bird likes it
light
easy to mount to wall or swag chain
complete package
good variety
quality seems good

Cons :

The calcium block secures with twist ties. They are in the back, but watch them carefully for wear, or signs of the birds trying to play with the ties.
the door is of the guillotine type, which can fall on the bird and hurt him. However, it fits tight and doesn't move on it's own, and it can be secured with a clip, if you have one.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice, simple keyboard, November 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This keyboard is a good purchase for the money, has good key response, layout and size, and thats about it.

Pro's
good "footprint" on desk
well spaced, well sized keys with good response and feedback
inexpensive
PNP install.

Con's
slightly cheap / flimsy feeling plastic
the "legs" on the bottom are cheesy and easy to accidentally collapse or break off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little bag, September 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this bag the same day that I got the EEE that it was designed for. I must say, with as much as I cram in this bag, beat it around, take in the rain, and scuff it about, I expected it to look, well,... worn. It still looks like brand new. It also fits the notebook perfectly, appears adequately rain resistant, and is easy to clean. It seems to offer good padding for the laptop, and takes up the absolute minimum space that it needs to, making it easy to cram into a backpack.

and if you can pack neatly, in the front pocket, I have: a power adapter and cord for the laptop, a 6' USB mini cord, A PSP charge/data cable, an Sandisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 player, Jbud3 earphones in their case, 2 flash drives, 2 spare SD cards, and a 3" mini data cable for my phone. It still hasn't worn the zippers out!
