Pros: cheap. pretty color. Includes 2 charger adapters which should be able to be used for other cables. Works for charging but only in a limited sense.
Cons: When plugged into an iPad mini the mini gives the error message that this cable is not Apple certified and may not work properly, and it doesn't. When used with the wall adapter, the cable will not charge the ipad mini. When the cable is plugged into a USB hub, it also will not charge the ipad mini. When I plug the cable directly to a Mac desktop USB port, then it is able to charge the ipad mini. So 1 out of 3.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fosmon DURA X Series TPU Case for Apple iPad Mini (Pink)
Pros: inexpensive. will do the job designed for which is to prevent scratches and minor dents
Cons: took ~ 3 weeks to arrive, which is longer than expected. I was hoping for a red cover, and the photo in the on-line site showed something that looked red, but upon arrival it was a dark pink. Going back I see that I did order a pink one, so I shall go with that. The on-line color can be deceptive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DIAMOND VC500MAC USB 2.0 Video Capture Device For MAC
Pros: Plugged it into my macbook pro with an older, tape-based (analog) cam-corder at the other end. It takes a couple minutes for the software to recognize the signal coming from the cam-corder. Initially with software version 1.4.9 it did not recognize the video but got the audio. After going to the manufacturer's web site and downloading the latest software (v1.5.1) the video worked well also. The laptop screen shows some streak artifacts both on the original video play and in the recorded version, but overall the video quality was decent. I used an S-video connection.
Cons: not 100% artifact free in the video, but pretty good. You'll need your own connecting cable. The device has all female ends, as does my cam-corder output, so it is designed to take an extension/connection cable.
Other Thoughts: Eliminates the need for a video capture card on a PC, or similar device. I got it on sale (for $33) and with a ($18) rebate from the manufacturer, so this is a much cheaper alternativeREAD FULL REVIEW
