chrissped - PERFECT! But not for everyone.
The audio that comes through this cable is clearer than angel phlegm. I mean, we're talking about distortion measured in nano-decibels, far beyond the human ear's ability to discern. I have a Denon Ultra-Brute AVRX 92080 Self-refracting Hyper-cooled Receiver and its perfectly matched twin blu-ray player (BR 92080), and other cables (gold, salmon-skin, Tanadium, etc.) just weren't doing it. To be honest, the stereo-cilia in my ears are almost twice as long as normal, and so I hear things others cannot, and am very sensitive to the slightest imbalance or distortion. The vast majority of you should save your money, as you will not be able to discern the excellence of these cables, but to me, it's been eye (and ear) opening! These are the only cables made that can accurately reproduce the Wilhelm Scream just as it was originally recorded, to chilling effect I might add. I now know what the Electric Light Orchestra is actually saying after the line, "Don't bring me down....". As for the video, these cables provide a window into the actors's souls; something no ordinary cable can do. I now realize that Mel Gibson isn't really a bad guy, just crazy and demented. By filming my female friends and watching the video through these cables, my success-rate at scoring with them has gone through the roof! One does NOT need twice-normal-length stereo-cilia in order to appreciate THAT!
Mamma bear - In love with this case!
This case is beautiful, functional and durable. It matches the color of my iPad perfectly. It almost looks like a miniature version of my macbook, but in pink. The iPad snaps securely into the case with ease. My only complaint is that it is a little tough to get it out, but that is not a deal breaker by any means. It is a little small, so it takes some getting used to typing on it. Typing on this small keyboard is a lot like typing on a netbook. I love that the keys light up, just like my macbook. The only difference is you can make the keys light up in different colors. There are 7 different light color options. The case charges up fairly quickly. Once you turn it on, it automatically turns off when you close it, and turns on when you open it. Not only that but the iPad itself goes into sleep mode when you close the case, and wakes up when you open it. The case is a sturdy aluminum, which is great protection for the iPad. I had a different iPad bluetooth keyboard once that only had a little thing that stuck out in the back to prop it up. I could only use it on a flat surface, and only at one angle. That is another reason that I really love this case. It is hinged like a laptop. You can use it in your lap with the screen at any angle you want without it falling. It stays put very nicely. As far as the charge goes, It takes a few hours to charge, but it keeps a charge for a very long time. I have only charged it once in about a week and a half.
