SYNAVOLT Modular Power Bank Can Handle It All

We’ve reviewed many portable battery packs here, but the SYNAVOLT is the first I’ve ever seen that is both expandable and modular. Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, SYNAVOLT starts with a 20,000mAh base unit; it has two slotted expansion bay ends that can handle a variety of power-enabled modular attachments.


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.

LandingZone’s New Docking Station for MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Looks Amazing

The LandingZone has announced what they call “the most powerful Apple MacBook docking station to-date.” It just might be. This new docking station offers an oh-so-awesome 16 different ports and can turn your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar into a powerful workstation. At $299 it is pricey, but the added functionality is unparalleled if you want an impressive desktop computer.


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 meets most of my needs that I’ll dive into a bit later; for now, here are some of the official specs as listed by BenQ: Panel LCD Size (inch) 27″ Aspect Ratio 16:9 Resolution (max.) 2560 x 1440 Display Area(mm)…


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. 


Add Some Variety to Your Standing Desk with Fully’s Anti-Fatigue Topo Mat

As an owner of a standing desk, chances are there are actual cases where you will be standing for long periods of time, typing your life away. The surface beneath your feet can eventually hurt your feet, so why not get yourself a nice floor mat? Fully’s got your back in this regard. If you read my previous review of the Fully Standing Desk or even the Tic Toc Chair, you might think it’s a bit odd I enjoy sitting at my standing desk. In the times I am actually standing however, I use Fully’s Topo Mini Anti-Fatigue Mat ($89)….





Galen Leather: Luxurious Accessories for Your Electronic Devices

It’s not very often that I open a box and have to stop what I’m doing to inhale the fragrant smell of fine leather wafting as I unwrap the contents, but that’s exactly what happened when I recently opened a package from Galen Leather.  What was inside the box? Beautiful cases for my iPhone, 12″ MacBook, and 13″ MacBook Pro.



OWC ThunderBolt 3 Dock for MacBook Pro: A Solution to a Problem That Shouldn’t Exist

Ever since I finally received my standing desk by Fully, there was one other item that I knew my setup needed to make it complete: the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock. OWC announced that they would be creating their Thunderbolt 3 Dock way back in 2016 when the MacBook Pro was announced, and after a few delays, and a lot of other reviews of standalone imitators, the popular Mac vendor sent over their Thunderbolt 3 Dock. Promising to deliver more connectivity, power and charging capability than the previous Thunderbolt 2 Dock, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a “what can I not do”…
