|Closer Look and General Usage|
When Thermaltake recently asked me if I would be willing to look at one of their LUXA2 products, I agreed knowing that the LUXA2 line is generally quite sleek and sophisticated. I had no idea what I was getting and when the box arrived, I quickly opened it with anticipation. Then I saw the H1-Touch. My excitement quickly dissipated and I wasn't all that excited about the H1-Touch Mobile Holder. Once I opened the box and took a closer look at the H1-Touch, my mind was swayed back to the realization that this could in fact be a decent product. Keep on reading to see how this device holds up and if it's a worthy accessory for your mobile device.
I have a lot of mobile devices and normally they sit on my desk and if I want to play a video on my Zune or iPod Touch for instance, I had to prop it up in order to view it comfortably. I did purchase a side flip case for my Zune that allows it to stand on it's own, but it's not always that handy. Once I inspected the LUXA2 H1-Touch, I saw the possibilities.
The gripping mechanism is gear driven so that all the arms move in unison with each other and provide a nice solid hold on your device. It's a simple design, but it works and that is important as no one wants their iPod to fall out of the holder and on the floor.
