iVisor for iPad 2

I got in a study for a new screen protector they were testing in the market.  It was for a privacy screen protector, one was glossy and one had a matte finish.  Both were descent products but still needed a little work to make them perfect for the market.  Waiting to see if they actually come out or not now.

Well by doing the survey I got an Amazon gift card and I used it to buy a new screen protector.  I got the iVisor.  You can get it over on Amazon for $30.  Which for a screen protector is not that cheap of a price.  I got my first one free and others I bought were under $10.

However, I will highly recommend the iVisor to anyone.  It's worth spending the money for this screen protector. 

First reason being, when it says no bubbles, by gollie, there were no bubbles.  I've never put on a screen protector that didn't have a bubble left in it.  I was pretty amazed at that.

The black layer around the protector blends right in with the iPad 2's black area.

If you ever spill anything on it, you can actually take it off, wash it and then reapply it back on.  Bonus for not having to buy a new one.  There is a part of the instructions that says do not bend it to where you have made a permanent crease as that will mess up the product.

It's actually pretty thick compared to the other protectors I've used.  So it's going to be pretty dependable for scratches or anything that would hit the screen.

Another feature that I did notice was the special EZ-Glide top layer treatment which reduces finger glide friction, making the touch screen maneuverability experience a lot better.  It does help pick up my finger movements really good and it helps it move the screen a lot faster. 

I've only had it on for a few days but I'm impressed right off the bat.

Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter

Finally broke down and got a Wireless N adapter for my 360.  Just like the other one, very simple to install and the 360 picked it up right up.

Played Horde on GOW3 last night with it to test it out.  Normally I get some lag or I get delayed at one point while playing on the older 3G adapter.  I didn't run into any of that last night.  Makes me wonder if it is the new adapter with the faster speeds or just luck.  Will see as I continue playing different games online with it. 

It'll be a really good test when the 3G speed on my router drops offline.  Which is another reason I wanted the N adapter as my iPad 2 stays online and works on the N side of the house where all the other devices on G lose connection.  From what I've found so far on that, having 5 or more devices seems to mess it up.  Also, connecting our cell phones to it seem to make it crash extremely fast.  I'm not sure why but it does.

So now that the 360 is off the G and on the N.  Will see if Hulu hits any bad spots where it tries to keep loading over and over again.  Hopefully it'll smooth it all out and make everything work even better on my network.
