I recently reviewed the xBriefcase from xSuit and was incredibly impressed with the thoughtful, intelligent design, the premium materials, and the durability. The company was kind enough to send me one of their xSuit 4.0 suits, and I’ve been equally impressed. It’s comfortable, has a surprising amount of stretch, looks good, and, best of all, it’s machine washable.
During the pandemic shutdown, our entire work lives moved onto Zoom. When it did, Lume Cube’s lighting solutions became an essential tool for my staff and me. I still rely on their products for video and photography. Now, the new Lume Cube Edge Light 2.0 has become my go-to desk lamp for work and Zoom calls.
From smartphones and laptops to tablets and gaming consoles, the number of power-hungry electronic devices that many of us are using has never been greater. But with so many power-hungry devices, the need for efficient and reliable charging solutions has never been greater; that’s where the Ugreen Nexode 300W USB-C GaN Desktop Charger comes in. This compact charging hub has four USB-C ports and one USB-A port, and with it, you can charge up to five high-power devices simultaneously, including a 140W laptop, without the need for extra chargers or multiple wall outlets.
When Apple removed most of the ports from their laptops, they caused the market for port replicators to explode. After all, while it’s true that WiFi and Bluetooth let many peripherals connect wirelessly, there are still times when you need to plug accessories in. The Satechi USB-C Dual Dock Stand covers adding additional ports to your MacBook, but it does much more.
When the pandemic forced us to close our building, I needed to get my synagogue up and running, remotely and online, as quickly as possible. Lume Cube’s products were a big part of helping us pivot from in-person services and meetings to being all online while still looking somewhat professional. Their latest product is the Lume Cube Ring Light Mini; let’s take a look.
The best desk chairs have a few key features. They are well-built and sturdy, but they are not too heavy. They have a breathable seat and backrest. They offer enough neck and lumbar support for long work sessions. And they have enough adjustments but aren’t overly complex. The Sihoo Doro-C300 Ergonomic Office Chair ticks all those boxes.
TL;DR: Skip the monthly payments for essential software. If you need Microsoft Office on your Windows or Mac, you can get it for only $29.97 with no recurring fees or subscription costs through July 14.
There are many excellent earbuds on the market today, and at $269, the Evolve 2 earbuds from Danish manufacturer Jabra have strong competition. What makes these stand out from the crowd is their specialization. The Jabra Evolve2 True Wireless Earbuds are a sleek and stylish set of wireless earbuds that are specifically designed for use in professional settings such as the office or during remote meetings. I’ve had the chance to test these earbuds out, and I’m really impressed with their overall performance and features.
A little more than a decade ago, I reviewed the Twelve South HiRise Adjustable Laptop Stand. It was impressive. Three years ago, the HiRise became a key part of my wife’s home office when we went remote during the lockdown; I missed using the HiRise. Now, the company has released the new Twelve South HiRise Pro for MacBook; this new laptop stand is all mine.
So many jobs currently require a lot of sitting, especially for those working from home, and all of this sitting can take a toll on your body if your office chair is uncomfortable. The Sihoo M57 full mesh breathable office chair offers an affordable option that looks great and brings comfort from the headrest to the back and the legs.
Have you ever had a hard time positioning your camera in just the way that you need? Have you run into problems trying to precisely replicate a repetitive shot? Are you looking for a quick and easy way to switch between portrait and landscape orientations? Then Edelkrone has the camera mount for you.
I’m a fan of in-ear monitors and have two pairs of custom in-ear monitors (IEMs) I’ve reviewed and continue to enjoy using. Both sadly lack a microphone and, as a result, are only good for listening to audio. The new Antlion Audio Kimura Duo changes all that with excellent IEMs and an integrated microphone for calls and video, and it’s available at a shockingly low price.
Once you get used to having more than one desktop monitor, using a laptop’s single screen can feel a bit like a punishment. When working remotely, bringing along a second (or third) monitor to use with your laptop might not seem practical, much less portable, but there is a solution. The Xebec Tri-Screen 2 makes it possible to have multiple displays in a super-compact form factor!
Anker has become a household name in the world of electronic accessories by selling well-made, reliable, and cost-efficient products. Whether you’re using an Anker portable battery, 3D printer, docking station, or one of their Eufy or Soundcore devices, Anker’s offerings never fail to impress us. Here are some of the products they were showing this week in Vegas.
We love Nomad’s products. We love them even more, when special savings are involved, which is exactly what’s happening during their annual Black Friday sale. Even though the savings are terrific this year, Nomad decided to do something extra special. So not only are they announcing this year’s deals, but they’ve just introduced the Nomad Limited Edition Full Leather Desk Mat.
I’ve been burned enough times that I’m no longer a fan of posting about crowdfunding campaigns, but I’m willing to post about the CZUR Fancy Pro, which is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo because it is different. Not only does the company already offer well-received products, but I have an early sample of the CZUR Fancy Pro in hand, and it impressed me.
If you often find yourself searching for a free outlet or port, the compact Ugreen 100W USB C DigiNest Pro Charging Station will be right up your alley. With three AC outlets, three USB-C ports, and a legacy USB-A port, the DigiNest Pro has proven to be a very convenient and powerful desktop power strip.
Even if you don’t consider sitting to be the new smoking, daily sitting for long periods can cause negative health issues; many of us don’t have a choice. We buy adjustable desks that can go from sitting to standing height with the press of a button. But now what? Standing still for long periods, especially on hard floors, is uncomfortable. And surprise! Standing all day comes with its own host of health problems. The WalkingPad A1 Pro Foldable Under Desk Treadmill might be the perfect solution, as long as you can master the fine art of walking as you work.
As fall approaches, more and more people are returning to in-person work. But the pandemic has changed life forever, and Zoom calls are here to stay. A light, comfortable and effective headset like the Jabra Engage 75 is key to working efficiently.
Slice makes cutting tools that are durable and easy to use, but most importantly, their ceramic blades are finger-friendly and safe. Whether your goal is always to be prepared or you regularly have a lot of cardboard boxes that need opening and breaking down (raises hand), Slice has a knife that will get the job done. I was sent the Slice Folding Utility Knife and the EDC Folding Knife to try; both knives have features that make them different from and, yes, likely safer than using their metal blade equivalents. Let’s take a look.
Playing the equivalent of musical chairs with your wall chargers and cables can become the norm, especially when your everyday carry includes multiple power-hungry devices like laptops and tablets. The Ugreen Nexode 200W GaN Charger puts four USB-C ports and two USB ports at your disposal; with its GaN technology, you can fast-charge up to three 65W laptops simultaneously or charge up to six smartphones and tablets simultaneously.
