Pros: *Sturdy plastic two-piece cover
*Rubber sleeve which goes around the plastic cover
The screen protector is a little tricky to find (I almost didn't see it), but it's the bit with two colored tapes on one end with "Step 1" and "Step 2" written on them. The process of fitting the screen protector on was relatively painless, since a plastic element is included to help you press and slide any air bubbles which may have migrate their way under the protector.
I have not actually dropped the iPod I own, but the person who's going to receive it is thought that it made the iPod easier to hold and use, as well as mitigating some concerns about damage to the item. Overall, I think this is a solid product at a remarkably low price.
Cons: The only issue is the rubber sleeve seems to be of somewhat low-grade quality in how it was molded. I.e., there are two covers/flaps on the bottom of it which cover the USB connector plug and the Headphone plug - the cover of the headphone plug should probably be cut off as it looks rather ugly when the item is in use.
But this is extreme nitpicking. The cover will gather hair or particulate stuff in your jeans pockets, but that's nothing that can't be resolved with a little paper towel and water.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this item for what it does.
I had a different iPod case before, which cost me nearly double the amount for this, and it was constructed such that it had two pieces which fitted around the iPod - from the bottom half and the top half - which is different from this one which fits around the iPod in two pieces which snap together - front and back. The old case I had would always come apart in my hand whenever I was holding the iPod and using it, which was remarkably frustrating. This one, on the other hand, has no such problem, and makes the iPod easier to use.
Pros: After initially putting these into my Maximus V Gene and set to the XMP profile, this kit worked, somewhat to my surprise. You see, I have the i5-3570k (Costa Rica) for the CPU, which really shouldn't work at 2.4GHz this RAM is clocked at. However, after some time, the integrated memory controller finally gave out after a couple days, with the usual spate of BSOD's and errors as registered on MemTest (OS level). After the usual finessing, I set got things working again at the following settings:
9-11-11-(29), 2200MHz, 1.625V
The voltage may be somewhat generous, but I have a 1.5GB RAMDisk set up, and don't want minor errors creeping into it at any time.
So, given what I have, I'd say the higher clock gives one some room to work with in lowering timings and voltages however one sees fit. That's G.Skill for you.
It's an affordable price for high-quality DDR3!
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that a i5-3570k's integrated MC isn't really capable at running these at their stated speed (XMP). You might even get lucky enough that they'll boot, but the strain on the iMC will catch up with you eventually. I anticipated this, so do not find it much of a problem.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red
Pros: What can I say that hasn't already been said? It's a great DualShock 3 controller with a nicely distinctive red color. The buttons function well, the quality of the build is high, and the rubber knobs have a better resistance compared to PS2 models or even the Sixaxis. You won't regret the purchase. It's sunny Sony quality!
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
