Tech Review: Speck iGuy for iPad and iPad2

There's a green-guy winking at me....and Mr. AMW's not even a bit jealous!

Here's why...
He's super adorable!!!
You got that right! One of the new gadget I currently own is an iPad2.  I've been enjoying this gadget so much that I did not get the chance to blog about it yet as there's just so much to say!  Well another reason is, I'm busy playing games and watching my favorite movies!  Everything's just easier with an iPad2.  A more comprehensive review on it will be up in the future, for now, let's get back to the guy who stole my heart!

Speck iGuy says ---

Introducing iGuy - the freestanding foam case for iPad and iPad 2 with tons of personality! Every bit protective as he is a blast to use, iGuy is the perfect iPad accessory for kids and grownups alike. He's lightweight, easy to hold, and he can stand on his own two feet, even while holding up your iPad. 

Dimensions: 2.0" x 15.5" x 9.5"
Weight: 14.97 oz

AMW says ---
  • Just the look of this can make me smile!  
  • Soft cover makes it easy to hold.
  • The 2 hands of iGuy may be cute to look at but its functional in the sense that I can easily grip my iPad2 without holding onto the product itself.
  • iGuy at first glance is super bulky but I find it just right.  It gives the right amount of protection to my prized possession preventing it from damage due to accidental drop or bump.
  • All ports and buttons are accessible and fits perfectly!
  • Though the arm of iGuy is a bit too flexible for my taste, it doesn't tear or create wrinkles.  It goes back to its original shape.
  • I'm not sure if its just me but the sounds of my iPad2 is louder with the iGuy on!
  • Since the iGuy has legs, I find it easier to watch my favorite YouTube videos, play games with it on my lap as it's "higher".
Ok, I watch most of the Keroro Gunso episodes here!
(yes, I know, they are for kids but I enjoy watching them!)
  • Priced reasonably!  I've seen other iPad cases and they can even get more expensive than this and the protection isn't as good.
  •  I want more colors available!  Would love it if they have this in red!
  • Since I love playing Words with Friends, its on a portrait mode.  iGuy can't stand on "portrait" mode.
  • A bit too bulky to carry around when you go out.  Not unless you have kids around for an excuse :P
  • Putting the iPad2 in is a bit too difficult for me, my screen-protector almost peeled!  (I must be super amateur on  handling an iPad).
It all started when I'm always feeling sleepy after just an hour of watching my favorite shows.  After I used the Speck iGuy for my iPad/iPad2, I am more relaxed and I am actually looking forward to use my iPad2!  Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, I must put this on the "CON" portion as I'm sleeping as late as 2:00am every night as I don't feel much strain on my eyes!  

This thing may look childish but believe me when I say --- it's a must if you prefer to keep your iPad at home!

  • Though all sides of the iPad are protected with the iGuy, the screen portion isn't so I suggest to put a protective "laptop bag" or "foam" on top during storage to prevent accident.
  • Wipe your iGuy every now and then with damp wash cloth to prevent it from getting dirty!  The neon colors are cute when they're clean!
Will I repurchase?
I doubt you'll need to repurchase if you own one as this will last you a long time!  Very durable and only "Tazmanian devil" can destroy this! *lol*

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who owns an iPad or iPad2 and likes to watch movies, videos or play games at the comfort of their home.

Best if you have an iPad/iPad2 for your kids!  Gives nice protection.

Where to purchase and how much?
Reasonably priced at Php1,450.00 (approx $33.70) available at the following stores: Beyond The Box, Digital Hub, Digital Hub-CDO, Digital Walker, E-Central-Cebu, Gui - Davao, iCenter-Cebu, iCenter-Davao, iCenter- Iloilo, Inbox Store, Power Hub-Davao, Power Mac Center, Sencolink, Switch, Technoholics and The A-Shop.

I wouldn't mind spending a bit on protection for a pricey gadget.
How about you? What's your cute gadget protection lately?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
