Casio SGW-300H-1AVER Unboxing

Casio SGW-300H-1Aver

G-Shocks are my thing, they are indestructible, well almost, and I like things like that, just look at my choices of phone cases, iPad covers and so on, however I seen this little Casio (non G) on a forum, brand new as an unwanted gift, and at a great price, pretty much half the RRP. It was too good to let go, especially as it had the Altimeter / Barometer/ Thermometer sensor as featured on the G-Shock I currently have my eye on. I saw this as a good opportunity to evaluate this feature at a fraction of the price. If it is good, G-Shock gets bought, if not at least I know and my eye can wander at another!

The first thing I noticed is how so different this watch feels from my G’s. It feels light and flimsy, the strap feels as if it may actually break, it has a big face (50mm) but it feels light. The clasp looks small, the buckle is small and looks weak. Then I realised it’s not going to break, it is not delicate, it is just not a G. This is what normal watches feel like. I’m jsut used to wearing a tank commanders watch on my arm.

iFace 2 iPhone Case – Thoughts and Photos…

iFace2 Cover

As quickly as you have read and learn about the iFace cover for the iPhone, here now is the iFace 2. This allegedly has been produced to eradicate the problems of the iFace cover which unfortunately plagued the original case ( )

You will quickly see from the photos below that a lot has changed, the sleek contoured curves are gone, the little Apple logo is gone, and it has now went from being sexy hour glass shaped to a bit of a fat boy! The nice right colours are still present and the big fix is meant to be the camera doesn’t wash out when the flash is used, well guess what mine does, now depending on what case I choose I can have a yellow or red wash out.

iFace iPhone 4 / 4s Case : Thoughts and Photos…

iFace iPhone Cover

The iFace cases are currently found all over eBay and YouTube at the moment, they are hugely popular and also due to this popularity they range massively in price. Expect to pay around £5GBP to have one delivered in the UK, NOT the £20 – £30 some eBay sellers seem to have them for sale at!

I’m not going to write too much about this case or its predecessor, the iFace 2 case, coming next, as it is simply a bright, cheap and cheerful case.

It is surprisingly well made, and with little details like the cut out Apple logo on the bottom all adding to the overall quality of the case.

When it is on it actually looks really nice, and due to the contoured shape of it, it is a pleasure to hold. As far as protection goes I’d be off the opinion that in an emergency it will help in the event of a small knock, however it is certainly not an impact case.

Griffin Survivor iPhone 4/4s Case Thoughts and Photos…

Griffin Survivor

Having been an admirer of the Griffin Survivor Case for quite some time I purchased one around a year ago. It took me so long as this is an expensive case, at the time I bought it it had just went sub £30GBP, I think now though you can pick one of these bad boys up for around half that! That my friends is a brilliant investment!

I purchased this one pretty much immediately after the Ballistic HC (previous post – ) and when it arrived I was immediately impressed! This case is not for the weak of heart, it is huge, it is heavy and if you like the look of your iPhone naked, you will probably hate this. However if you want to protect you phone this thing is just the ticket.

It claims the following rather impressive stats (and also has under its belt that it is approved to military standards) :

Ballistic HC iPhone 4 / 4s Case – Thoughts and Photos…

The Ballisitc HC is one of the range of cases in the Ballistic range, in this instance the ‘HC’ meaning ‘Hard Core!‘  The others in the range are :

LS – Life Style & Life Style Smooth
SG – Shell Gel & Shell Gel MAXX

There is also a full range for all other popular makes of phones and tablets, which you can check out here :

This is my second Ballisitic HC case, the first I had was with my iPhone 4, and was black, all black.  Then when I updated by phone to the 4s I was so convinced on this particular case, I purchased the white one, to go with the new phone.

It lasted 2 days!

California Scents Air Fresheners – A little smell of sweetness!

I had read a lot about good air fresheners, something a little more special than your usual ‘Magic Tree’ (which to be fair I also like).  So after a little research and a great deal on eBay I decided on the ‘Shasta Strawberry’ by California Scents.

I won’t labour on about why this is a good air freshener, it should be enough to say that this smells awesome, if you like the smell of strawberries you are in for a treat!

I will add though that I have this is my sports car, which is tucked away in my garage, for about a month now.  The air freshener hides under the seat and although I have the windows open a little to allow air to circulate around the car the smell still fills the car.  There is a vent on the top which you can adjust to control how strong the smell is, but for this having sat in an airing car for a month and still producing fragrance it is enough to say I am well impressed.

Oh and with these currently retailing at just under £2.00 delivered on sites such as eBay you are onto a winner!
