BlueAnt Q2 Bluetooth Headset

I have to say that I've had the chance to test out a few good popular Bluetooth headsets from Jawbone and others, so when BlueAnt introduced their newest Bluetooth headset called the Q2 which we have here for review, I thought it would be just another ordinary and modest headset but after using it for a while I quickly found out that it actually is the best Bluetooth headset I've ever tried hands down. The Q2 by far has the best sound and build quality both while calling and even when listening to music! Yes, with the Q2 you are able to listen to your music should you want to, and let me tell you that music sounds pretty damn good for a Bluetooth headset. More after the break!

Review & Comparison: Case-Mate Hula & Apple Bumper Case for iPhone 4

Case-mate has released tons of great cases and I have used quite a few of their products in the past. The Hula case is one of them. The Hula case is a bumper style case which is definitely influenced by the Apple Bumper case. Even though it is much like the bumper case, it has it own uniquenesses. Some of those are the cutouts, clear body, rubber quality, and the button covers. The case features a clear body all the way around the case, unlike the bumper case which is not. Also, some of the cut outs are different as well. The headphones cut out has more space then the bumper case, and the vibrate switch has a larger cut out. I feel like you will have more different types of headphones fit into the iPhone 4 with the Hula case on. Also, the vibrate switch is easier to access then the bumper case. Now the rubber material is definitely different as well. Apple Bumper case rubber feels a lot smoother and better.

Case-Mate Hula iPhone 4 Case

Case-Mate constantly puts out great cases out to the case market for Apple devices, and the Hula case for the iPhone 4 is yet another great case. If you're a fan of bumper style cases for the iPhone 4 then you will love the Hula case. It offers protection only around the metal band, very similar to an Apple Bumper but with one big difference in that the Hula shows off the iPhone 4's metal band thru the clear TPR plastic. The Hula incorporate a middle clear TRP plastic material with very grippy rubber outline edge. The design is very sleek looking with the colored outlines that look really nice. The rubber edging provides the slightest lip over the front and back for a very minimal lay-on-the-table design, nothing like the Apple Bumper but still sufficient. 

The Hula's port cutouts are perfectly cut and centered with covered volume and sleep/wake buttons that are very responsive and easy to push. I love how the Hula's buttons are raised up which makes finding your buttons and pushing on them easy. Getting to your silent switch is easy as well and you don't need to dig your finger nail inside. While the Hula is compatible and won't lift up any of your front and back shields, it will if you do not have them installed correctly and centered. The back of my iPhone 4 has a matte PhantomSkinz skin on that I did not center correctly and the Hula lift it up a bit at the top right corner.

Power Support Protective Films for iPad Review

If you’ve ever purchased a protective film for an Apple device, chances are you’ve heard of Power Support. The United States based company has well respected screen protector products available for iPhones and iPods, and they’ve transferred all the awesomeness of their previous products into their protective films for the iPad. Like past products, there are two types available, the clear ‘Crystal Film’ and the Anti-Glare Film. For the majority of iPad owners, the anti-glare should be the more appealing option, as anti-glare protective films have certain qualities that are superior to clear films. Both films have the same properties as films of the same type from other companies, but it’s the quality of each property that is most important in choosing a protective film.

For those who aren’t familiar with anti-glare films, their main appeal lies in the reduction of glare, reduction of fingerprints, protection from scratches and dust, and the matte finish of the surface. So how does the Power Support film perform? First off, let me tell you that I had one of the easiest installations in a long time with this film. It only took a couple of minutes, and the result was absolutely no dust or air bubbles underneath the screen, and pretty much perfectly lined up. The film went on easily, bubbles were easily eliminated, and the single dust speck that stayed under was swiftly and easily removed using the cello tape method described by Power Support. The film is precision cut, and I found it to be a very appropriate size, not too big so that it leaves absolutely no room for error, but not too small that it compromises in protection.

OCZ Vertex 2 SSD Review

One of the major ways to increase your computers speed and effectiveness is by upgrading your regular hard drive to an SSD (Solid State Drive). With increased speeds, some other major differences in upgrading to an SSD drive are the fact the an SSD drive is completely silent where as a regular hard drive has moving parts in it which cause all those annoying noises and clicking sounds you most definitely hear when you are working with a laptop computer. The OCZ Vertex 2 SSD is a fantastic upgrade drive that comes in a 2.5" form factor for laptop computers as well as a 3.5" adapter bay for non-laptop computers. Catch the full review after the jump.

PADACS Ergonomic iPad Stand

PADACS Ergonomic iPad stand is great iPad stand that is not only made out of quality materials such as aluminum, it is extremely functional as well. As soon as you open the box you can see that as it comes folded flat in a neoprene carrying case which makes it very easy to carry around next to your iPad in a bag or briefcase because of the extra protection of the neoprene case.

The stand is very easy to assemble, even though it does have many stages. The grey bits at the side pull out to support the iPad when it is in landscape mode, and pulls in when the iPad is in the portrait orientation. The stand has 6 angles of elevation enabling you to see the iPad from any angle. And the iPad feels extremely stable in all positions, landscape or portrait. The stand places the iPad on a foldout rubberized ledge to stop it moving around and keeping the iPad stable and secure. One thing that is really nice, is that the ipad is not clipped in so it is easy to remove unlike some other iPad stands.

Padacs iPhone 4 Case Lineup

 

We have reviewed several outstanding products by Padacs, a company that brings consumers low cost, quality accessories for Apple products, and today we take a look at some of Padacs’ iPhone 4 case lineup. There are three cases here, the Storm, the Plexus and iPhone 4 Bumpers. Each are very dfferent from each other, with the Storm being a play-through case, the Plexus being a snap on shell, and the latter being simple rubber bumpers.

The Storm case for iPhone that I received was the clear version, although Padacs also offers a blue version. It is a semi hard silicon case similar to the feel of the Belkin Grip Vue, and the back has a wavy designs of dots. When put on the iPhone, the design was more prominent, and contrasted the iPhone’s glass back quite nicely. The case has a slight lip over the front sides, although not quite as much as many cases. Functionality wise, the case has integrated button covers, which do line up well and are fairly easy to press. It’s got a decent sized opening for both the headphone jack and the cable connection, while the mute switch is also easily accessible. The hole for the camera and flash is also nicely shaped, and should not interfere with any photography. The only downside I saw with this case was that in my hand, it just felt a tad bit like cheaper quality silicon. Most people probably won’t notice it, but perhaps it is just because I’ve become accustomed to the glossy Grip Vue case. However, at a price of $9.95, it’s hard not to consider this as a case for you.
