5.0 out of 5 stars Good screen protector, pen still works properly after application, April 29, 2015
The Bluboon SP3 Screen Protector is a Tempered Glass Screen protector. Because it's tempered glass, you can actually BREAK the protector, so be careful when applying it to your SP3.

The other fantastic part is that the pen still functions normally with this, unlike some of the other non-glass solutions available to protect your SP3 screen.

The protector is easy to apply, it works, and the cut outs for the camera and speakers are properly cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and bright, but be aware they use watch type batteries and a set lasts only 24 hours of use or so, April 27, 2015
These lights are decently designed, and they work. The only down side is they use Lithium CR2302 batteries, so you'll want to have some on hand for if/when the batteries die. They are set to only run for up to 24 hours total, which really isn't a lengthy amount of time.

Of course, chances are low you will have them die in a day, but using a few times a week you'll likely need to replace the batteries in a month or 2.

The lights are bright, and the wires are simple and easy to wrap around things, so you can place them and forget them.

I just wish the batteries would last longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, and it provides good quality audio, April 27, 2015
If you want to provide wireless output capability to a device, such as an older iPod, that doesn't have BT capability, the GadgetZone DBPower BT transmitter gives you what you need.

It only offers up to BT 2.1 capability, so if you are looking for something that does apt-X, you will want to look elsewhere. If you just want something that offers the capability to throw your audio around, and it has a 3.5mm output (headphone jack), then this will work well.

Setup is simple. Power it on and hold the power button down for about 5-6 seconds. Enable BT on your phone or other device, connect it, and you are ready to go.

It works well enough, it's simple to setup, and sound quality is good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality is meh, fit in the ear is not that great (for me, may be OK for you), April 27, 2015
Out of the box, these headphones are a little light on bass, and when pushed to max volume, the high end sounds overly harsh. The mids remain mostly clean, and sound quality there isn't bad.

The other problem with these headphones is that they are similar to the Apple design. If they don't fit in your ears, they don't fit. And when earbuds don't fit, the issue is the sound quality suffers. These headphones, and any in ear design, hinge on you getting the right fit to get the right sound, and unfortunately, for me, these don't fit in my ears.

Sound quality, when properly fit, is just OK. I like they are BT capable, but the fit means they aren't really sport ready.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely built, offers plenty of power, April 27, 2015
The Antemall 5.1 A car charger is a nice, small sized car charger that offers a lot of output from such a small package.

It offers 3 outputs, one is 2.4 A, one 1.5 A, and the other is 1.2 A. The ports are smart ports, so if you plug something in that can only take 1A, that is all it will accept.

The charger is nicely built, feels solid, and works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice device, be sure to purchase a memory card when you buy, April 27, 2015
For those of us who need more storage on our i-Devices, and/or want more storage to store music and videos but don't need it ON the phone, the EliveBuy offers a pretty simple solution that works, and while it will add to the overall length and weight of your phone, it's fairly light and... it works.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you use a phone protector that covers the Lightning connection (maybe the old 40 pin, though I don't have one to test) you may need to remove the protector to get the device to sit properly.

When you buy, be sure to also purchase either a MicroSD or SD card or you will be a little annoyed to have to wait for it to show up.

When you plug the device in, it prompts you to download the app to your phone. Let it download and now you have the ability copy files to the device and play them as if they were sitting on your phone. It's quite a cool device and works well.

There is a MicroUSB connector, along with a 40 pin connector, but I don't really have devices to try this on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, sounds good. I wouldn't recommend for Xbox One, April 27, 2015
Length:: 6:53 Mins

The HW-398 connects to your chosen gaming console via optical, and will offer wireless STEREO sound that sounds pretty good at this price point.

Supported systems are 360, XBox One, PS3, PS4, and PC. I have tried it on 360, Xbox One, and the PS3. I haven't saved enough to get the PS4 yet, so I cannot comment on that one, though everything I've been reading says connection would be about the same as it is on the PS3.

Before buying, be aware of what you are buying. This is NOT a surround sound headset. This will only accept Stereo input. If you have your chosen system set to surround output via DolbyDigital, DTS, or other multichannel output, you won't get any sound from it at all. You MUST output sound in stereo with this for it to work properly.

On the 360, chat is wired only. The cable is included for this, and chat works fine with it plugged in. If you are looking for completely wireless gaming audio for 360, you will want to look for a more expensive option from Turtle Beach, SteelSeries, or whomever else sells them. Chat quality is good. I can heard my chat partners, and be heard.

The chat audio is mixed in with the gaming audio, and there is no real way to increase or decrease chat volume. There are also no options to dynamically increase chat or decrease game audio like you get with the fancier TurtleBeach, SteelSeries, etc headsets.

On the Xbox One, things are a little disappointing. To chat with friends, you need a Kinect. If you don't have a Kinect, you'll need the Xbox One chat adapter for third party headsets. For me, this is less than ideal as I have had limited success in getting that adapter to work reliably, and I would instead very highly recommend you purchase an Xbox One specific headset if that is why you are buying this headset. It works with the adapter, but you often get double talk because the transmitter is outputting the chat input, as is the Xbox One. You can turn chat volume down on the adapter, which works, but all of this effort just doesn't feel worth it to me.

The PS3 connection is pretty simple, and both audio and voice are completely wireless to the headset. Just ensure you set the output to stereo only output.

Sound quality, overall, was a lot more impressive than I expected given this is a no-name brand. Compared to the audio from the Xbox One MS headset, this one blows that away. Compared to the Titanfall TB headset I have, I think the sound is more impressive from this one as well. Compared to the XP7 TBs though, there is no comparison and the HUHD is blown out of the water. That's kind of to be expected given the price difference though. Compared to the PX51 headset, I give sound quality to the PX51 as well. Of course, that headset also costs more than this one, so maybe this is again to be expected.

The build quality of this is completely plastic. The padded headband is nice, but overall it just feels a little cheap.

I also don't like that the mic is on the right hand side of the headset, no matter what. This is kind of normal to have the headset not be "reversible" on a lot of these headsets, but I'm so used to the headset being on the left that a right hand side mic distracts me a little. I got used to it, but it's still something to be aware of.

Overall, it's an OK headset offering pretty good sound quality, but only in stereo output. And you will potentially be disappointed with it on the Xbox One if you want it for anything other than game audio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great steamer, works well, plenty of attachments, April 27, 2015
The DB Tech steamer is a pretty nice steamer, with plenty of attachments to do just about any type of steamer work you might have waiting for you.

The way it works is you open the top, dump in up to 6 oz of water (the instructions tell you how to ensure you don't fill it with too much water), plug it in, wait 3-5 minutes and you are ready to steam. One slightly confusing thing is that the light comes on when it is heating up, and goes out when it is ready. I had hoped the light would change color when it was ready, but that is not the case.

The main attachment I use is the one in the photo. It gives a nice directional blast of steam. I've used it to steam the fridge, the counter tops, and more.

The cord is 9 feet long, and it allows for a lot of leeway to clean what you need to.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works, wish build quality were better, but saves me from horrible florescent lighting, April 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These over the glasses... glasses, look, in a single word, dorky. Yes. I said it.

But here's the thing. I can't currently afford to do prescription glasses with this effect, and having used these over my current glasses, I don't want to sit at work without them. I just don't like how they look.

What do they do for me? To be clear, I do NOT suffer migraines from florescent lighting. What I do suffer from is eye strain as, for some reason, the people at work have decided that our lightning MUST be "brighter than the sun and as obnoxiously unnatural as possible in every way possible). I have gotten minor headaches from the florescent lighting, and I have actually gotten sick to the stomach under the lighting. Wearing these glasses I can sit at my computer at work, under the Brighter Than the Sun florescent lights and not want to vomit. Well, not because of the lights anyway.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you work in color critical activities, like printing or similar, you obviously won't be able to use these for that purpose. You get an orange-ish tint to everything. It's obvious, but figured I should at least mention it.

Build quality is OK, but maybe not as nice as I would like for $100.

If you want something to mitigate the effects of horrible florescent lighting, these are great. I can't comment on migraines or other light sensitivity issues personally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works, is long, if you abuse cables this may not hold up, April 27, 2015
This cable is extra long (10 ft / 3 M), and it works. You can charge, you can sync. And you can do it from 10 feet away.

The cable is not braided, it is more like the standard Apple cable. One thing I am not overly fond of is the connection points. Since many companies that send free items want reviews up quickly, I usually try to do some rather abusive things to the items I receive like this. Especially when these cables tend to take a beating. My testing in this case was to bend the cable right at the point where the cable enters the plastic sheath. It has a heck of a pinch point there, and I can tell that if you really abuse this cable it may not hold up very long. If you plug it in behind the couch or nightstand and just unplug and plug back in, it should have no problem lasting for a while.

The color is a nice baby blue. The connectors are MFI certified, so they work as expected on your supported i- devices.

Recommended.
