I bought an L-shaped bamboo-topped standing desk last year. With grand illusions of doing all of my work while standing, I also bought the large Topo Mat to help with fatigue … but after 10 minutes of standing still, my back starts hurting, and I’m back in my chair — gah! And then I got the Ergo Impact LeanRite Elite.
I have standing desks in both my home and work offices. I love them. In both cases, however, assembling the desk took quite some time. The Varidesk ProDesk 60 Electric solves this issue without tradeoffs. The desk, whose MSRP starts at $995, can be assembled in about five minutes yet is an impressive no-compromise standing desk.
Raina and I were visiting friends in Florida. They had a Lexus IS250. I drove one for six years, and the bucket seats were even more comfortable than I remembered. It occurred to me that a desk chair with the same design would be awesome! Well, the $349 RapidX Ferrino Desk Chair is just that — a bucket seat-inspired chair!
The Jabra headsets we’ve reviewed over the years have been consistently impressed us. I reviewed the on-ear Jabra Evolve 75 Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation and keep them at my desk at home. Now, Jabra has taken much of what makes the Evolve 75 great and packed it into the smaller Jabra Evolve 75e neckband headset.
If your job means being outside in the harshest weather conditions, and you need a tablet that can survive drops that would kill other devices, one that can be used while wearing work gloves or even when the screen is wet, then you might want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2. It was made for just that.
I was so impressed with the Human Solutions UPLIFT standing desks and accessories I reviewed last fall that I purchased a larger version of the UPLIFT desk for my office at the synagogue. The company also sent a Pursuit Ergonomic Chair for review. It too impressed me, so I also purchased one for my office. Here’s why I’m a fan.
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.
Productivity and efficiency are critically important for small businesses that don’t have the luxury of wasting resources. However, it isn’t always easy figuring out how to maximize productivity in different areas of your business. But the good news is there are a number of solutions specifically designed to help you tackle the challenges in these areas.
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 love my standing desk. (Read the review) After the review, I purchased a larger version of the same for my office at the temple. I love it but have to admit it’s a bit on the utilitarian side. Now one standing desk company, NextDesk, has rebranded as XDesk and introduced the Vintage line of standing desks. They’re anything but utilitarian.
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.
My new MacBook Pro is thin and light and, with just two USB-C ports, is lacking in ports. My iMac does better but still lacks the degree of port-related connectivity I used to have. That’s why the $299 OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a perfect fit; it offers a ton of ports and speeds that were unimaginable a few years ago.
I recently reviewed the BenQ E-Reading Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp. It’s fantastic and offers a wide lighting range, an assortment of adjustments, and it looks good! I did not, however, love having it sit on my desk. This is no longer an issue thanks to the BenQ e-Reading Lamp Floor Stand Extension. It brings light wherever it is most needed.
I’m finally getting my home office set up in the way I have always wanted. Two of the accessories that let me write this that from BenQ. In this review we will take a look at the BenQ e-Reading eye-care LED Modern Premium Designer Desk Lamp. It not only brings light to an otherwise dark office but it also delivers a light designed for extended screen-time.
Human Solutions, makers of great sit-stand desks suggests, “It’s time to rethink the concept of what an ergonomic office chair should be. The stylish and ergonomic UPLIFT Motion Stool has what your body needs for any type of perch-standing at your desk.” They sent me one for review with their UPLIFT Desk and I am sold.
We’ve all seen the USB hubs that look like a black or silver block with three or more USB ports on the front and a wall charger cable on the back, right? They work well enough, but they aren’t particularly organized or nice looking. Here to prove that you can have organization and good looks is the Nomad USB Hub.
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!
I recently reviewed Human Solution’s tabletop sit-stand desk converter. It’s an impressive way to turn a standard desk into something much more. For those who want the full sit-stand desk experience, however, there is the UPLIFT Stand Up Desk. I have one for review and love it so much I bought one for my office at work!
It’s a well-known fact that raising your laptop to a better viewing height and adding a keyboard will improve your posture and help your back and neck. What you use to raise your screen opens up a ton of possibilities. We’ve seen plenty of metal stands, but here’s something new and elegant — the Galen Leather Walnut Wood MacBook Stand.
Have you ever wanted to work from home? Most people love the idea– eliminating the daily commute, finding a more comfortable work environment, and being closer to family and loved ones.
I’ve long been a fan of Jabra headsets. The Jabra Elite Sport which Greg reviewed here is my current favorites for running. And, as I was setting up a new home office I was excited to see the release of the Jabra Evolve 75 headphones. I was thrilled to get a pair for review and am truly impressed by them.
