Phosphor E Ink Digital Hour Clock Watch with Stainless Steel Band Review

Reviewed by K.C. Kim

You’ve never seen a digital watch quite like this before.

Its ergonomic curved case with ultra-thin profile fit so comfortably on your wrist you may forget you are wearing it, but others won’t.

The digital display utilizes the revolutionary E Ink electronic paper display featuring its paper-like, high contrast readability that is sure to be noticed by others around you. A standard numeric digital display in one mode, a graphic hour clock display in another, and ability to switch between white-on-black to black-on-white time display give this digital watch a style all its own.

* Case width: 38.0mm
* Ultra thin thickness: 8.0mm
* Water resistance: 5 ATM – 50m
* Display: 12 hour only

I had a chance to review the Digital Calendar watch from Phosphor. And now I reviewed their other new model, the Phosphor Digital Hour watch. The main difference between the two is the Digital Calendar has a full Calendar on screen. While the Digital Hour has large typeset numbers.

Design: The Digital Hour is one model with 3 types of bands. The version I have is the stainless steel band which is the highest priced model at $195. It gives off a dressier look than the casual leather band and sporty Polyurethane band. The Digital Hour is a bit more minimalist with only two side buttons only slightly raised. The entire watch is sleek and forms nicely with the wrist. The Digital Hour is slightly smaller than the Digital Calendar watch. SO if you prefer larger watch the Digital Calendar may better suit you.

Function: The Digital Hour can be presented in either black or white background with the opposite black or white numbers by hitting the right side button. You can switch from just larger numbers to a discs that shows the hour with the minutes in numbers by clicking the left button. The large numbers would be great for those who have a hard time reading small type. Plus the E-Ink provides less eyestrain for older eyes. Overall perfect watch for telling time for all ages.

Conclusion: If you want an excellent gift for this holiday season then pick up the Digital Hour Watch by Phosphor. You won’t be disappointed by this unique watch that is sleek and original. It’s truly a futuristic watch with its E-Ink technology that must be seen to be appreciated. Only this watch is available today and will be a big hit for watch enthusiasts.

The Audio Technica ATH M20 Headphones offer exceptional clarity and maximum comfort for hours of listening. The headphones’ low-profile, closed-back design provides superior isolation in high-volume listening situations. The ATH M20 Headphones also features 40 mm drivers, each with a neodymium magnet structure; lightweight, adjustable cushioned headband; gold-plated stereo 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) connector with strain relief and snap-on 1/4-inch (6.3 mm) adapter; ultra-flexible 10-inch coiled cable with left side connection.

I was looking for a budget Studio Headphones when I came upon ATH M20. These are the lower end studio headphones from Audio Technica. They are currently on sale for under $30. Considering they are $70 cans that’s a good deal.

Design: For under $30 you get headphones that are both comfortable and stylish. The cups fit over your ears fully. The padding is thick and provides very good comfort. The cord is on one side so the headphones are more free to roam around with. The cord is also long and coiled at the end which is a major plus.

Sound: The headphones provide good sound, good bass, and the volume is sufficient. They don’t however provide noise isolation. So if you’re looking for noise isolation these are right for you. As these have a small slit on the back where noise comes in and out.

If you want a low priced, excellent sounding, and comfortable headphones then take a look at the Audio-Technica ATH M20 Stereo Monitor Headphones. They are truly a bargain with excellent features. I wouldn’t hesitant to buy these cans again. They are well worth the price.

ZuneOne Silicone, Crystal, and Travel Case Review

Intro: I have been meaning to get a Microsoft Zune since it was announce but for some reason I didn’t. But when an opportunity to get a Zune at only $100 I purchased it instantly. It took about a week to receive from Woot. Now that I have it, I needed to protect it. First I receive a FREE screen protector from ZuneOne(Details here). And then asked to review three of their cases.

ZuneOne Crystal Case Yellow: The Crystal Case I like the design and looks of it. It’s probably the best looking of the cases. However it functions a bit stiff. The case is a bit hard to open. And the plastic is of okay quality. It does work fairly well inside the case. And the see through plastic shows off the Zune nicely. 7.0 out of 10 Product page here

ZuneOne Silicone Case Clear: The silicone case probably feels the best of all the cases and is form fitting. It’s the closest to feeling like it doesn’t have a case on it at all. Almost like a second skin on the player. 8.5 out of 10 Product page here

Zune Travel Case 30/80: This case is my top pick. It provides the best amount of protection from falls, dust, and lasting durability. I have no doubt that these cases can lasts for years. And keeping the Zune in pristine condition. Also this case has room for earphones and cables. It’s all around the best case for the Zune. Only main negative is you can’t use the Zune while in the case unlike the others. 9.5 out 10 Product page here

Conclusion: Each case appeals to different users. The Crystal the best looking, the Silicone the most usable, and the Travel Case the most durable. I would recommend getting any one of these cases. But if I had to pick one I would go with the Zune Travel Case.

The prices of the cases can’t be beat and costs half of what other sellers are selling. Why buy a $30 case when you can buy two of these instead. So if your looking for a case or maybe two for your Zune, look no further than the ZuneOne line of cases.
