Understands EVO 1: Elevate and Organize Your iMac with Gorgeous, Functional Wood

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.

Epson FastFoto FF-640: The Ultimate Archiver for Photos and a Paperless Office

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’s Got Two New Ultra-thin and Ultra-Powerful Monitors

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.


Dell UP2718Q 27” 4K HDR Monitor Is Impressive with a Price to Match

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.



OnePlus Upgraded Mic Arm Stand Review

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.



Lenovo Yoga Mouse – The Only Mouse You Need

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.


I’m a Fan of the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging

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!


BenQ Eye-Care Monitor: Is Viewing Experience Worth the Lack of Ports?

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…


Samson QH4 4-Channel Headphone Amplifier Review

Samson QH4 is one of those products designed for professional musicians but also makes sense for non-professionals who simply want to share their music with others while wearing headphones. The Samson QH4 is “a 4-channel headphone amplifier designed to distribute your audio to up to four individual headphones, each with its own volume control.” And there’s much more. 


The Western Digital My Passport SSD: Tiny Yet Fast and Substantial Storage

If you need to carry a high-capacity external drive with you when you travel or go to work, you’ll likely be interested in making that memory device as small as possible. Take a look at the Western Digital My Passport SSD; it’s 1 Terabyte, rated for 515MB/s, and it measures just 3.6″ long by 1.8″ wide by 0.4″ thick.





ASUS Announces ASUS Pro B9440 at CES

ASUS has announced the world’s lightest 14 inch business notebook. Coming in at only 2.31lbs, the B9440 will be available in May 2017 and will retail for $999. Not only is the notebook light, but it also takes up no more of a footprint than most 13 inch notebooks.
