You can by the seals separately but this pack gets you three of them and also a replacement filter which is pretty good value and more so if you have a Prime account.

This case is the colour you expect it to be which isn't quite what you get with cheaper options. Fits the phone fine without any hassles.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy way to connect cables, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
IF you need to connect cables together then these are an easy way to do it. Useful for making connections in a car without having to cut a cable and try to join them using connectors or insulating tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice product but sizes appear to be slightly off, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a present for my wife and ordered the right size but on arrival it proved to be on the small size. Even the medium size was a comfortable size for a small person. The actual product is fine though.

For the money this cover is pretty good. Protects the iPad and also functions as a stand too. Adds a little to the size of the iPad but isn't that heavy. Has the magnets to auto switch on the iPad too. Worth a try at this price.

Does what you expect but is longer and has a better quality finish than many other products. Fits in well with power supply cables.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than having twin or triple monitors, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had been considering a dual or triple monitor set-up for gaming but started looking at ultra wide displays as an alternative.

Overall I really like the monitor, once you get used to it! After using a widescreen 23" it does initially feel like a really weird shape but you do get used to it pretty quick. The stand is easy to attach with two screws and you get tilt adjustment. You also get a power brick and loads of cables for connecting devices to the monitor - that in itself could save you a few quid. Connectivity is pretty good, apart from a DVI input you can also have 2 HDMI inputs, a USB lead for the built in hub that has sockets for three devices which is handy. There is also an input for the built in speakers and headphone and mike. The on-board speakers are functional but not stunning.

Playing games like Battlefield 3 on the monitor does make it more involving and more fun. Using programs like Word and Excel you get a lot more room for more pages side by side or columns across the screen. The only program I appear to have an issue with is Lightroom 5. It works fine on my old monitor but I get grey boxes instead of images on the LG widescreen. I've not found a solution for this yet (tried different resolutions and options within LR5 but no joy yet). Adobe Photoshop works fine and the screen makes editing panoramas a lot easier.

Update: The problem appears to be the app provided by LG for splitting the screen in to windows for different apps or programs. When playing PF3 it would rapidly switch between the game and the Battlelog web page. Uninstalling the LG app resolved this problem and also appears to have cured the Lightroom problem above.

Not really mentioned the screen quality yet. Well it is pretty good straight out of the box. After plugging it in and using it for a day or so I then calibrated it and the difference between out of the box and being calibrated was minimal. Photos and text are pleasing to look at.

One point to note if you are planning to wall mount the monitor, all input connections go straight in to the back of the monitor rather than into sockets vertically. This does mean it will not mount close to the wall - you will need to allow 3.5 to 4 inches behind it for cables to plug in.

To sum up, consider this monitor if your are thinking of going multi-screen.
