This review is from: TekNmotion Black Real Glass Screen Shield for iPhone 5 / 5S TM-GSP5B
Pros: Keeps your beloved iPhone screen from getting scratch damage. Very thin, you can hardly notice it is there. VERY inexpensive when i purchased. The clarity of the glass is astounding, as is the smoothness. I can not stress that enough. This glass is of otherworldly superior quality. No interference with the touchscreen capabilities, no problems caused with the brightness or proximity sensors.
Cons: A little pricey if you do not get it on sale. Instruction in the packaging is sketchy at best. Whats the blank rectangular hologram foil/sticker for? The rear facing plastic protector is garbage. It is of the worst quality, simply discard it rather than trying to use it. Does not handle flexion from the side AT ALL. Thats what broke mine, trying to put a loose case over the whole deal. The cover got on fine, the bottom part (incase cover) broke the film.
Other Thoughts: I love this product and intend to buy another as soon as i get sick of waiting for it to go on 75% discount.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LACIE 1TB USB 3.0 Porsche Design Mobile Drive for Mac Model LAC9000293
Pros: Decent speeds from a USB3 connection.
Stylish aluminum case (if you care about such things).
Bright indicator light.
Convenient length cable about 2.5 feet, good quality one at that.
Fairly priced at the time.
Idiot-proof works out of the box.
Can be used in self defense if mugged outside library, workplace, etc… (its edges are that sharp and the case is that strong).
Cons: A little pricey based on the designer's name, this cost a premium of maybe 5-7% because of the brand.
The 996 inspired blah silver case could bore some.
Other Thoughts: Other than the extra cost due to the Lacie / Porsche name i can not think of anything to complain about with this drive (which i actually do own).
It is very small, the case is VERY tough (most people couldn't break it with repeated attempts), and it is certainly attractive in that uninspired Porsche industrial look.
I could complain that the literature tells nothing about what brand disc and controller are inside, but either you trust Lacie or you don't. The included cable is not a cheap piece of junk, nor are any of the other visible pieces, so one hopes that is true of the internals (which are the only parts that matter, LoL )!! While i am not certain, i think the disk brand is of the Sea, but i have no clue as to the controller.
I would not hesitate to buy another of these if the price was competitive. I would only get the unpainted silver ones, i think the white ones are ugly. If ever they make it in thunderbolt it would probably be a formidable drive.
This review is from: LaCie 1TB Porsche Design External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model LAC302000 Gray
Pros: Fast read and write at USB 3.
Needs no power adapter.
Good size drive at 1 Tb.
Included software is actually decent, if you feel you need to use it.
Feels solid and well built.
No problems with my Macbook Pro.
The data light is visible, but not obnoxious like some i have seen.
Cons: A little on the expensive side.
The design is cool, but its nothing more than a piece of milled aluminum with a plastic drive enclosure tucked into the milled out bit.
Some people may complain the cable is too short at about 18 inches. Its not for me though.
VERY sharp corners, this could conceivably hurt someone somehow.
Other Thoughts: I like this little drive a lot.
I always buy 2.5 inch drives to spare myself the adapter issues, even though they cost more. So i know i am paying a premium for these drives, and therefore can not complain about the pricing.
The drive is very fast, and i am just using it on USB 2 at the moment. It is quite a bit faster than my USB 2.0 drives.
It has the bland design by Porsche, if that interests people. It looks nice enough i suppose, and it really does feel quite solid and well built in the hand.
The LED it uses for access indication is just the right brightness in my opinion.
I would, and probably will, buy another of these drives.
