4.0 out of 5 stars Completed Repair but quite difficult, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have completed the repair and I'm happy with the result. A few things that I was not aware of. One you need a hair dryer to carefully melt the glue for the touch button ribbon and the front facing camera ribbon. Second, the clear plastic round disc which locates the front camera is adhered into the case with glue. Its super tricky to get it out and swop it over to the new screen. Also the broken glass is very difficult to suction to. You'll need vinyl masking tape or similar to adhere to the broken glass so you can use the suction cup, even then it still takes a while to get off.

Overall, I would only advise to conduct this repair if you have the patients, the time and a reasonably good technical understanding. It took me about an hour to do. I was very conscious of not damaging the ribbons and components.

The quality of the screen is exactly the same and everything works well.

Great bit of kit, but at the end of the day its a moulded piece of plastic and a couple magnets. I put this on my Salomon S-Lab 12 set as the tube was getting in the way. Works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly the best iphone 5 case!, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really don't understand the negative reviews for this product. This has got to be one of the best cases for the iphone 5. I was after a simple clip on case which fits well and provides good access to all the peripheraries (headphone jack, volume & silent buttons, charge jack, camera). The case is very robust, fits very snug. Most importantly the case is sits slight raised from the screen so when resting screen down it will limit its chances of being scratched. The case is also smooth plastic which slides in and out of a mans pocket and looks slick in black.
There are so many rubbish cases out there that look tacky and cheap. This Tech21 case looks the part and even offers a good amount of protection for when you drop it and I have dropped mine my fair share.
All this talk about it won't fit and can't be removed. All I can say is these people must be rough. Its designed to fit snug so sure you have to be careful snapping the case on and removing it. But its designed to stay on, why try remove it all the time?!
I'm a design engineer, to be honest I can't really fault this product. 5 stars from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most robust & practical USB Pen I've owned., 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent way to long researching a good USB pen for my key chain. I wanted something robust and metal that could fit on my key chain, it was going to be subjected to a bit of abuse. I looked at the following:

Kingston Technology 64GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler SE9 DTSE9H/64GB with Metal CasingVerbatim 97763 32GB Micro Plus USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Black
Verbatim 44050 16GB Micro USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Black
Verbatim 97763 32GB Micro Plus USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Black
Transcend 16GB JetFlash T3S Ultra Slim Metallic USB Drive
LaCie PetiteKey 9000348 32GB USB 2.0 USB Flash Drive

Basically the Kingston won hands down after a thorough analysis. The LaCie was my second favourite but pricey and had two small metal tabs sticking up near the contacts which i assume protect it but the ultimately snagging agent! Verbatim was close behind, both very small and light but plastic and small key chain hole.

The Kingston feels very solid. It is an all metal casing, has a decent loop for your key chain and looks sharp. Its also tiny, much smaller than i expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works but poor design, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used this to mount to my ski pole. The product works but the design is poor. Instead of gripping when the hand bolts are tightened the plastic flexes indicating a weak design. The plastic should have been thicker or designed with more ribs to prevent this happening. Also it requires a piece of rubber (such as a bicycle inner tube) to line the inside of the contact points.

Unless you have a 'lil know how' I would not recommend this product to someone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does it have a purpose other than aesthetics?!, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only reason i purchased this was because it was on sale now that the gopro 3 has come out. Its a bit fiddly to put on, but once you've done it a few times its not a problem. It does give the gopro a bit more protection, not that it really needs it. I have a white ski helmet and have the gopro mounted on the side. Because the gopro is now white it does seem to blend in a bit more, not that it matters. The other factor, hard to measure though, is that it gives it a bit of insulation from the snow and cold which may prolong the battery life?!
