5.0 out of 5 stars iOttie "MiGo Selfie Stick"-- A Critical Review., Feb. 7 2016
Length:: 2:17 Mins

This is one of the finest and well-built selfie sticks I have ever had in my hands.

***

The manufacturer contacted me to see if I'd be interested in reviewing their selfie stick and another item. I told the rep that I had seen both of these items x10 over the last four or five years and I was especially not interested in reviewing a Selfie Stick.

At the last minute, I decided after hearing about all of the improvements and the design, I relented and accepted the offer just for the selfie stick.

This "Selfie Stick" or monopod is uncharacteristically perfect in all ways.

First, the handle is very durable but not excessively heavy. And, by this I mean, you can use this for hours without feeling arm strain.
The Bluetooth transmitter easily connected to one of my Note 4's and I had no problem taking pictures.
The phone holder, itself, is strong enough to carry a phablet type phone, as you can see in the accompanying video.

The stick contracts and is neatly compact. You can store this almost anywhere and it's no bigger than a small umbrella and about the same weight.

Excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adata “HD710” 500GB Ext. HDD: A Critical Review,, Nov. 29 2015
I have several external harddrives in addition to refurbished harddrives that I've put into enclosure cases and use as backup drives/ “scratch drives” for video files.

This Adata is a great addition to my collection. In fact, it has a noticeably fast install speed, I saved two movie files both about 1.2 GB each and this “710” saved both at under 1 minute.

The HDD features are:

Certified IP68 military-grade rubber casing
High speed, USB 3.0 transfer rate
Driver-free for Windows 7- 10; Mac OSX and Linux 2.6-
3-year limited warranty

This rugged case came in handy when one of ADATA's reseller in Mexico unfortunately lost his house to fire about a year ago. He found the HD710 with its casing burned and torn but when he plugged it in just for the sake of it and amazingly found it worked with all his data intact!

The set comes with:

The HD710, 500GB HDD
USB 3.0 to USB male plug
instruction booklet

The HDD itself measures:
5.25” x 3.75” x .75”

This is a solid, solid HDD and a great investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Higher End Tablets., Nov. 29 2015
When I bought my Galaxy Note Pro-- imported vers.-- about a year ago, I had nothing but annoying problems with both the Samsung EVO 64 GB micro SD as well as a SanDisk 64 GB with transfer files.

Sometimes, files would would upload to the card from my main computer others won't.

There was also the issue of video files randomly stalling.

Everything changed when I bought this card in late October. Now, all the files that I transfer to the card move very fast and completed. Playback of video files are uninterrupted.

This is a great card.

When I bought this card on Oct. 22, it was selling here on Amazon of $59.99, now it's "Black Friday" and it's selling for $39.99-- at either price, it's definitely worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good And Comfortable General Headset for Gaming., Nov. 29 2015
The "GX-H3" is a soft and fairly lightweight gaming headset that will satisfy most casual gamers.

First, the set is essentially a single-piece headset with a rotating mic.

This is an analog headset, there is no bluetooth radio installed. But, if you're into gaming seriously, the absence of a wireless connection won't bother you.

Aesthetically, the headset is a simple and minimalist in design.

The sound is good for general game play. Good but not great. Considering this is for budget-minded consumers.

Headset was provided by the seller for an objective review.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Fits The Bill., Nov. 16 2015
Length:: 0:23 Mins

The "X5" is first a foremost a device that you'd like because of the multiple features that it offers and NOT because there's any one standout feature.

This is a wood speaker, I'd venture to guess plywood, that's both light weight and soft to the feel. And, I'll add handsome to look at as well.

It features a big LED display
Wood casing
Soft, touch key
Built in microphone for hands free calling
Clock and Alarm
5 W.

All of the features works but the one thing that really didn't impress me was the sound reproduction. The sound was somewhat flat and lacked real bass.

But, for what it's intended purpose is, this definitely fits the bill

4.0 out of 5 stars The G1S-- A Noticeable Improvement of the G1, but... A Critical Review, Oct. 12 2015
Length:: 3:30 Mins

The “G1S” is, like it predecessor the “G1” a portable, mobile internet receiver.

It works like the popular “MiFi” that connects to any of the main US-based carriers by picking up and internet signal and offering either a secured line or it can be shared amongst upto five devices.

What makes this different from the MiFi devices is that GlocalMe has its own dedicated towers and it has built an international spectrum that each GlocalMe will connect to provided that the individual has enough credit for connection.

So, a G1S for instance is good for an internet connection in most countries around the world without having to look for a local phone company to provide a connection.

The rates for local GlocalMe connection is destination specific.

*** G1 vs. G1S ***

Earlier this year, I tested out the the G1 and found that under specific scenarios the G1 was a good buy despite the higher than average cost. This reasoning was based on traveling and convenience although the signal strength was below what you'd get even with smaller phone companies like Boost, Virgin or Simple.

The G1S, I'm happy to report, offers significantly higher dowload and upload speeds than the original G1. This despite the fact that it's only operating on a 3G spectrum.

As you can see in the video, I did several tests with the G1S and SpeedTest.net and the improved reception was good enough for me to receive a signal inside a building that the G1 couldn't. Also the the signal was strong enough to app updates and emails.

The elephant in the room is will this stream video. The answer is yes and no.

This is strong enough to stream bandwith-friendly YouTube and Yahoo news, but it won't stream Netflix without pausing or giving you an error message.

It used to be that this wouldn't be a big deal but streaming video such as Netflix or Hulu or HBO Now is one of the main features of any mobile or hybrid device.

There's a new G2 coming which supports the 4G spectrum, hopefully this will be the answer to my prayers.

Overall, the G1S is definitely a step in the right direction and is significantly better than the G1 and if the G2 is not available, this is a great option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Syllable "A6" Neckphones: A Critical Review,, Oct. 11 2015
I have LOVED all of Syllables headphones that have come out.

They are handsome, well built and the sound reproduction is quite good for a consumer grade/ budget headphone.

These "A6" continues the streak for me with one minor issue.

These are the first neckphones that I've gotten from Syllable. The design is ingenious because they literally clasp around your neck by two magnets on either side and these headphones have few buttons.

The issue that I have with these headphones is that it's not that loud. I love the fact that the sound reproduction is accurate. I also love that it's easy to wear and very practical but I would have love that they put in bigger drivers because shoving the earpieces in the ear canal doesn't stay.

So, they'd ether have to re-design the earpiece or install a bigger driver.

But, this is actually more comfortable than the recently released Samsung "Level"

On the whole, these are a very good headset and is recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Watch With One Slight Issue, Oct. 10 2015
While I prefer the Shark "SH203" to this one, this watch the "SH343" is still a good choice if you prefer the classic look with the retractable metal band.

One this is perfectly clear, Shark makes BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL watches. This one is no different.

What distinguishes the three different models is not function it is design. I tend not to like the metal bands on watches from years ago. When I tried this one, my opinion hasn't changed. Nevertheless, there are people who like this kind.

This is a mult-functional watch that has a LED display that you can depress and show the time as well as an analog/ mechanical hands.

I took this and Shark's "SH203" which differs only in the band. I liked the SH343 a bit less because I find that kind of band to be uncomfortable for hours on in and those bands tend to pull the hair off of your arm. Ouch!

Also, I'd like to point out that the weight of this watch is well-balanced. It's neither top-heavy nor the strap flimsy.

This is just a well made, handsome and beautiful watch.

Here are the manufacturer's spec:
- Flag of finish line, as the background Sporty appeal, Fashion and cool design
- Honorable, crossing the finish line after a grueling race brings about a combination of feelings that weave together into one beautiful moment.

I've included a few pictures to show how it fits and works but aside from the features, there are TWO big pluses to this.
1-- It is more striking to look at in person than the pictures upload on Amazon.
2- Well made and well balanced

5.0 out of 5 stars Immaculate and An Outstanding Value for the Price., Oct. 10 2015
This is a great all-around watch that can double as a dress or sports watch.

***
The "SH203" by Shark is immaculate to look at. I can vouch for the band's material but I think it's leather, it certainly feels that way.

This is a mult-functional watch that has a LED display that you can depress and show the time as well as an analog/ mechanical hands.

I took this and Sharks "SH343" which differs only in the band which is that expandable metal clip. I liked the SH343 a bit less because I find that kind of band to be uncomfortable for hours on in and those bands tend to pull the hair off of your arm. Ouch!

Also, I'd like to point out that the weight of this watch is well-balanced. It's neither top-heavy nor the strap flimsy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and Very Well Made., Sept. 20 2015
This bag is exceptional.

This can be a unisex bag. It has a nice main/center pocket along with two front pouches for smaller items.

Although it is a polyurethane material, this polyester looks and feels like real leather. I am, however, not fazed by the material as long as I can determine its quality-- and this is a VERY nice leatherish bag.
