September is almost here, and you’re probably seeing endless “Back to School” commercials which can only mean one thing — people are headed back to the classroom. We’ve found quite a few products that you might enjoy, whether you are a parent, a student, or even a teacher.
As a personal fan of Creative’s products, I was pretty stoked to hear that they would be releasing three products that would be sure to bring the noise. I had a chance to check out all three, so let’s dive in.
Arguably the best webcam I’ve personally ever used, the Logitech Brio 4K Pro Webcam puts my MacBook’s eyesight camera to shame, although it comes with a hefty price.
At home, I use a MacBook Pro connected to two large monitors. At work, I have a 27” iMac. It is a fantastic computer, but I don’t like that the ports and connections are at the back. That makes it difficult to quickly connect and disconnect peripherals. That’s where the $89.99 Satechi Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub comes in.
It seems like every year, Netgear gets better and better; today they have announced that their award-winning Orbi Whole Home Wi-Fi System, which utilizes patented Fastlane3 technology, will soon be available using 6th generation Wi-Fi, 802.11ax, or Wi-Fi 6.
Some months ago I reviewed an OWC Thunderbolt 3 dock. It has twelve ports and does a tremendous job turning my laptop into a desktop. I was thinking about picking one up for my work iMac when I heard the company had released a fourteen port Thunderbolt Dock. I have one in hand for review, and boy am I impressed.
Lume Cube has made quite the name for itself with its products that promise both better lighting for better content, so it’s no surprise that they’ve come up with the perfect live streaming and video conferencing lighting solution, the Lume Cube AIR VC.
Beyerdynamic has just introduced the Phonum, a wireless Bluetooth and USB Speakerphone that the company promises will give you high-quality sound at an affordable price.
For the past few weeks now, I have been using and growing accustomed to a new keyboard, the Logitech G513. Boasting a full keyboard layout, multiple profiles, full RGB backlighting, and a detached wrist rest this keyboard is hands down the most comfortable keyboard I’ve ever owned, but it is not without its drawbacks and quirks.
Data has become a modern-day currency of sorts, and in some cases is valued more than money itself. This type of data must be protected but it has not always been easy (or economical) to do so for the individual. The new diskAshur2 portable solid-state drives from iStorage can provide this security easily and affordably.
Regardless of whether you’re a gamer, podcaster, or just dong voice-overs, the one thing you need to have is a really good microphone. While you can probably find a cheap microphone to get by with for a while, we’re sure you’ve also looked at microphones from Blue.
The understands EVO 1 is a sustainable hardwood stand that elevates your iMac for an ergonomic viewing experience. With undermount technology built-in, your iMac integrates into the wooden stand for an uncluttered and organic effect; cable management and a storage drawer complete the custom organization. I like an uncluttered desktop, and I like the look of hardwood; this looks promising.
If you need a large capacity portable SSD, and you prefer one that is small, tough as nails, and fast, then you should check out the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD. With read speeds up to 550MB/S, rugged IP55 water and dust-resistance, shock and vibration resistance, capacities up to 2TB, and its small size, it’s great for on-the-go students and professionals.
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.
Printed photos have been around since 1827, and if you have boxes or albums full of them, sitting in storage, you might be tempted to either pay someone to digitize them or to forget them. Another option is using the Epson FastFoto FF-640; it’s a high-speed photo scanning system perfect for digitizing, and that’s just the beginning of its usefulness.
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.
If you’re in the market for a pair of desktop speakers that are easy to set up and use, connect in both wired and wireless modes, sound good, and won’t break the bank, check out the Logitech MX Sound Premium Bluetooth Speakers. No, they aren’t for audiophiles, but for sound and ease-of-use at your desk, they will blow you away.
I have had a Blue Yeti of some sort for years, and while the mic comes with its own stand, it’s one designed to only work on your desk. I’ve often found there doesn’t really seem to be a good place for the mic with its stock stand. This changed when I received the OnePlus Upgraded Mic Arm Stand.
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.
So let’s be honest. A mouse is a mouse is a mouse. Right? Well, maybe not so much. Technically, a mouse pretty much does the same thing when it was conceived in the 1970s but the innards of the device itself, along with the way they connect to your PC or Mac.
