Check out Elgato’s ThunderBolt 3 Dock if You Need More Laptop Ports

One of the saddest parts about purchasing one of Apple’s most recent MacBooks is that the company was so forward-thinking in terms of USB Type-C, they completely forgot that some of their more popular devices are still bound by Lightning and standard USB. As a result, customers have to live what’s been long considered “the dongle life”.

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.


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.
