    I’m not at all as knowledgeable about this stuff as most of the people that write the reviews so this should may good for people who are clueless about this type of stuff. I had read the reviews before buying this and wasn’t sure if I should spend the extra $ on Monster cables or not so I bought Monster cables and this at the same time. I was hooking up to Direct TV and a Panasonic Blu-ray to my HP 1080i HD 47″ Flat LCT TV so I needed two anyway. When I switch these with the Monster I can’t notice any difference in quality. A friend of mine works for Tweeter and helped me with my TV installation so I asked him about it and he said that there’s very little difference and he wouldn’t spend the $ to upgrade. I spent $15 on these instead $40-$50 on Monster (which would have been $200+ at the store that I bought the TV at) and got the same picture as far as I could tell.

    These cables were shipped fast and work just great! I’ve compared to other “high-priced” brands and performance-wise, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL. This is what you would expect from a cable carrying a DIGITAL signal… it either gets from one end to the other, or it doesn’t. Digital does not have the nuances of analog, so spending a zillion bucks on fancy cables is just a waste of money.

    Highly recommended!

    I am NOT electronically savvy, but: I bought these 15′ HDMI cables on the cheap because I couldn’t see popping $80-$100 for a set. Many many online reviewers have stated that price doesn’t make that much differance in HDMI cables, so I thought I’d ‘waste’ $5 and try them, rather than ‘waste’ $100 on a quality that I didn’t need. Did that make any sense?

    These work great! My upconverter upconverts just fine, Everything looks HD to me! If you don’t have the extra loot to throw at HDMI cables, buy these. You’ll be happy. To quote Ned Flanders, they work just Diddly-Darn-Fine.

    This review is from: USB Travel Kit with Car Charger, Travel Adapter & Cable for Apple iPod (Electronics)

    The USB cable looks and feels very similar to the apple one, but the chargers have a somewhat cheesy feel. Then again, that’s totally to be expected when you buy a whole set for less than half the price of a cable or either charger alone from Apple or one of the name brand companies.

    I also should note that the AC adapter is 100-240v compatible, so it can work worldwide. I was wondering about that when I bought it because none of the tech info mentioned it. In fact, the casing itself was designed to be used with the EU style plugs, and that’s why it protrudes from the body of the case.

    Also, the items I received look like the submitted picture, and not the MFG’s picture, for what it’s worth… Doesn’t matter much because in any case the items aren’t very aesthetically pleasing anyways.

    Bottom line, from reading the other reviews it looks like they have QC issues, but I wound up with a perfectly functional set at a great price.

    This review is from: USB Travel Kit with Car Charger, Travel Adapter & Cable for Apple iPod (Electronics)

    Guys,
    Do NOT EVER buy this product. I lost my Ipod Nano(8gb) because of this cheap nonsense. As soon as I plugged in the charger into the wall outlet, and connected it to the nano, the charger blew a fuse, and had smoke coming out of it. My nano didn’t start after that. No matter what I tried. I took it to apple store, and they couldn’t start it either. My warranty was void.

    Go for real apple products, not for these cheap chargers. I’m not sure if this company BargainCell is selling authentic products, or just cheap makeovers without ever having tested them out.

    Again, do not buy it, unless you want to risk losing your ipod.

    Product is pretty decent, so far so good, just as advertised. Works like a charm with ipod, infect the car charger can also be used for charging my blackberry / rarz phone, since it is USB enabled.

    This review is from: Leather Carrying Case Cover/Folio With Built-in Stand for Apple iPad 3G tablet / Wifi model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB (BLACK) (Electronics)

    “I recently put a $9 dent in my wallet..”ouch” to buy what I thought would be the the best Ipad case in the world”
    Well if you said something of that sort when purchasing this item, you will be rather upset with the outcome due to your ridiculous standards, although If you are like the rest of the world and can afford to lose some quality for a great price then this is the case for you.
    Lets break this down…

    Pros-
    1) Case fits Ipad ..nice start!
    2) Case protects Ipad
    3) Case performs well as stand..(as long as you live a consistent landscape lifestyle you will be happy.)
    4) Crazy cheap! I am pretty sure I bought this with money I got from returning the beer cans from my “I can’t believe I got an Ipad” party.

    Cons-
    1) Cost was cheap, so obviously the materials that go into it are…you guessed it, cheap. Fake leather (I guess the price of raising, killing, skinning, and tanning animals isn’t what it used to be), stitching is pulling out already (two days owned, but they never said you can’t chew on it in the fine print!!).
    2) Cutout for screen is off by a smidge, probably one of those measure once, cut twice deals, just needs to be a bit bigger next time.
    3) Pockets? It seems the pockets on the inner cover are for some sort of memory card…can someone tell me where to buy an Ipad with expandable memory so that I can fill these pockets? Although there is a pocket for my credit card which I always seem to need when I am in the app store so good call on that one. Next time give me a stylus and screen wipe pocket.

    Final thoughts- Buy it! If you just need a case to keep your Ipad in one piece then this is right for you. If you stand 10 feet from people at all times you may even be able to make them believe your case cost as much as $12.

    For starters, this case cost $15 so set your expectations accordingly.

    If you have an iPad realize that the screen is like the iPhone and very sensitive to external light from the sun, windows, or light bulbs. Adjusting the angle slightly takes care of the problem, but the iPad surface is metal that is virtually frictionless (i.e. it slides all over the place if you try to prop it up for better viewing). In my opinion you want a case that allows you to use the device while still in the case.

    If you are going to use this in an airplane, breakfast table, etc. you need a cover that allows you to adjust the viewing angle. This case allows you to stand the device upright vertically and horizontally. The fit of the case is OK, but not quite snug enough. The edges of the case are a little too big and cover a VERY small part of the screen. All the buttons/charging port are available when in the case.

    I didn’t notice any strange smells as mentioned by other reviewers.

    The case looks nice, but it’s the thinnest leather (or faux leather) you have ever seen in your life. However, I didn’t spend $50 so I am satisfied.

    If you plan to watch a lot of video, this is a good case for the $.

    If you are fine spending $50 for a case then buy something that is better quality and fit.

    The case is not leather, it obscures the display and light sensor, magnets interfere with compass and iPad can slip out, May 3, 2010

    This review is from: Leather Carrying Case Cover/Folio With Built-in Stand for Apple iPad 3G tablet / Wifi model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB (BLACK) (Electronics)

    This folio style carrying case obscures a significant portion of the iPad’s display around all four edges of the screen (except directly above the primary button). We tried to trim the case material back so that the full display could be properly accessed, but the results were completely unsatisfactory. The case material is not leather; the part covering the iPad’s bezel is a semi-rigid, plastic film sandwiched between two, thin outer layers of synthetic fabric that resembles the cheap vinyl found in inexpensive beach toys. Attempting to trim the case back to properly expose the iPad’s screen reveals this three-ply synthetic construction in a very unsightly manner. The thin, leather grained, synthetic fabric composes the covering for the entire case.

    Additionally, the case blocks the iPad’s ambient light sensor located in the center bezel above the iPad’s display (the sensor is on top when the primary iPad button is on bottom). Consequently, the iPad’s display will be perpetually dim despite external lighting conditions. Cutting a hole in the case to expose the light sensor will result in another unsightly modification.

    Despite reviews for this case claiming otherwise, there is no snap to secure the iPad within the case when the folio is open. Consequently, the iPad easily slips out of the case in this condition if care is not exercised. Even when the folio is closed, the iPad will slip out of the case if the snap strap is not secured well, so do not forget to refasten it every time you close the folio. Oddly, the case has a magnetic clasp to hold the folio shut, so the snap strap would have been put to better use holding the iPad in place rather than holding the folio closed.

    Speaking of magnets, the case has at least two: one to hold the folio shut and another to hold the stand in the closed position. These magnets interfere with the iPad’s digital compass when the iPad is in the case. For instance, our tests show that simply opening and closing the stand will change the direction of the iPad’s internal compass.

    If these design errors are corrected, the case would be a good, relatively inexpensive, protective solution for the iPad. The adjustable stand works as advertised and the case is padded well and looks pretty good. However, the case material used is not leather, but a cheap, synthetic substitute that almost certainly will not hold up well over time, so even if the case design is corrected it should sell for significantly less than the current price.

    As it is now, the case is very disappointing and a waste of money. It is made of cheap synthetic materials — not leather as is claimed in the numerous Amazon product descriptions for it. Because of its cheap construction, the wholesale cost is probably around $5, so the current Amazon selling prices of around $20 (including shipping) are very high. The case fits the iPad poorly and obscures a significant portion of the display. The iPad’s ambient light sensor is completely covered by this case resulting in a perpetually dim display. Case modifications are out of the question due to the cheap, three-ply synthetic construction: mods are very unsightly and will invalidate the buyer’s option of seeking a refund. The iPad’s internal compass is thrown off by the case’s magnets. And perhaps worst, the iPad will easily slip out of the case unless the folio is closed and the strap is snapped securely.

    EDIT: I have uploaded photographs showing the synthetic construction of the case.
