It doesn’t happen very often, but when I find a piece of tech I really like, I sometimes buy it twice.
In some cases it’s to have a consistent experience wherever I go; other times it’s to automatically replace a product I’ve broken or lost.
Either way, the items on this list all get my highest recommendation.
I haven't used a wired keyboard with my home computer setup in years. Wire clutter bothers me, which is why I switched to Bluetooth.
Anker's keyboard looks and feels like Apple's while being very reasonably priced. I've used this keyboard while travelling with my iPad and at home with my Mac. In fact, outside of work, the only keyboards I use are Anker's.
I wrote an entire article why this is the only mouse I use, but I'll sum up my thoughts here.
It's small, has great battery life, very low latency, and because it's Bluetooth you don't have to worry about plugging in a little USB receiver.
You can customise the function of all of its buttons, which can save you time if you're used to calling up certain advanced settings using complicated key commands. This mouse has ended up saving me time, which is more than I can say for any other one I've used.
I think that Eero's mesh network routers are great for people who live in big spaces, but I've been using an Airport Extreme for years. It's easy to set up, has great range, and got me the internet speed my ISP (Internet Service Provider) said I should be getting.
When my mum complained about having slow internet in her small place in Florida, I immediately bought this router -- and it's been smooth sailing ever since.
Blue light (generated by our phones, TVs, computer screens, etc.) is widely considered to have an impact on our sleep cycle.
To combat that, JINS created a tinted pair of glasses you can wear even if you have perfect vision like I do. These glasses reduce the amount of blue light that hits your eyes by about 25%, which in my case reduced eye strain from looking at a computer screen for many hours a day.
I left my first pair at a diner and ordered another pair within a week.
I've realised I forgot a charging cable enough times to have bought many, many, spares.
AmazonBasics' cables are inexpensive, pretty durable, and very affordable, which is why they have become my go-to recommendation.
