Xiaomi may not be the first brand that people in the US think of for smartphones, but they are ranked at #4 worldwide behind Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. Their smartphones have garnered praise from stateside reviewers for having excellent cameras, best-in-class features, and, most importantly, affordability. But Xiaomi makes more than just smartphones; they also sell home, health, and lifestyle products that include routers, fitness bands, LED desk lamps, air purifiers, and electric scooters, to name just a few.
Back in March, when I was told that I would be working from home for the foreseeable future, I knew that I was going to need a monitor to get work done. The issue is that most larger monitors and displays cost a fortune, or have been sold out for months. Then I discovered the Lepow Portable Monitor.
Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
It’s a good year to be in the market for a high-end computer monitor. There are curved monitors, HD resolutions that are off the charts, and sizes for everyone’s needs. Samsung’s getting into it too with two new gaming monitors for serious screen time.
Lenovo lavished attention on their business line with a ThinkPad refresher, but heading into IFA they’re showing some love to consumers as well with new lineups in monitors, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, and desktops!
With Memorial Day Weekend in full swing, so are the sales. LG in particular has huge savings for many of their electronics including their TV’s, sound bars and even their home appliances that you should pull out your wallet for.
Lenovo makes excellent computers, and they have every possible area of mobile computing power covered between laptops, convertibles, and Chromebooks. Now they’re adding to their mobile domination with a portable monitor, the ThinkVision M14.
Lenovo always comes to CES prepared with a roster of heavy-hitting announcements, and this year is no exception. With ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga updates, some seriously big monitors, and a few amazing accessories to round things out; let’s dive in!
Acer has announced its latest addition to their ever-expanding fleet of desktops with their brand new Aspire S24, the company’s slimmest model to date.
Dell has two new monitors on the way. The Dell 24 and 27 Ultrathin Monitors are packed with features yet surprisingly affordable. The 24” model will be just $299.99 while the 27” model will be just 27”. Both models will arrive at the end of January and look to be an integral part of Dell’s 2018 lineup.
My current home computing setup includes a 13” MacBook Pro connected to two 27” monitors. They look great and get the job done. But there is little that compares to the Dell UP2718Q 27” 4K HDR Monitor. With amazing resolution and remarkable color accuracy, it is a monitor built for professionals. It’s truly impressive with a price to match.
My home office got a ton better when the BenQ PD2710QC 27” QHD Designer Monitor arrived for review. It is a gorgeous monitor in its own right, but that’s not what makes this computer accessory so special. No, what makes this monitor special is the fact that it is both a great monitor and a powerful laptop dock.
I recently reviewed the AOC 2781PQ 27” Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor. It was ideal as I set up my new home office. (Read the review.) When AOC asked me to also review the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging I was thrilled. I now have an awesome dual-screen setup on my desk at home!
After using MacBooks for the better part of twelve years, when I finally received a standing desk, I knew for a fact I wanted a functional monitor that could stand as a larger display for my 2016 MacBook Pro. And I believe I’ve found just that in the Ben-Q Eye-Care Monitor (EW2770QZ). At 27 inches, the BenQ Eye Care Monitor meets most of my needs that I’ll dive into a bit later; for now, here are some of the official…
It’s not often that a monitor really piques my interest, but the Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved Monitor has done just that. The company’s first 37.5 ultrawide curved screen monitor will be perfect for anyone who needs a lot of screen room while using multiple windows.
I stopped using a desktop computer a few years ago and went all-in with laptops and tablets. Still, there are times when a large desktop with a plentiful screen is better suited to productivity. Thanks to my 2016 MacBook Pro and the AOC Q2781PQ 27″ Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor I have just that. I’m a happy geek.
I’ve got a pretty amazing curved 27″ Dell monitor, and I thought it was the bees-knees until I saw these two new Dell monitors! Check out the new Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor and the Dell UltraHsarp 30 Monitor with PremierColor. Le sigh …
When we built our house, for various reasons we decided not to put a TV in every room; we installed one 55″ LED VIZIO on the wall in the living room with all the home theater options, and we called it good. Well, sometimes the best laid plans don’t quite work out. Over time, we realized that it would be handy to have a second television as backup, so that the girls could pop in a DVD when we were…
This is my 13″ MacBook Air. I love it. Especially now that Apple fixed it after my clumsiness a few weeks ago (when I dumped a drink on top of it). With 4 GB of RAM and 256 GB of solid-state storage, the laptop doesn’t feel like a compromise in any way shape or form. It is super-fast, and super quiet. Add in the fact that the 13″ screen has the same resolution as the 15″ MacBook Pro that I…
Yesterday, I showed off the HP USB 2.0 Docking Station. It’s great for easily connecting your computer to all those peripherals (printer, external monitor, etc). Today, I’m taking a close look at the Display Link USB 2.0 display adapter. So “What’s a display adapter?” you ask. If you need to share your monitor through multiple displays, or you find yourself not needing a docking station but simply a way to put your netbook or laptop’s screen on a larger monitor,…
