Buddy Products Stand Up Height Workstation with LCD Mount

This standing workstation is far superior in its craftsmanship than its very low price might lead one to expect. It is very well made and has everything one might want in a workstation of this type. A laptop of any size, from a very small netbook to a large gamer’s model, fits comfortably on its top surface with room for an external mouse to the side if desired. There is a stand to hold an external monitor, and if a desktop computer is desired, there is a shelf on which to set it as well. The monitor mount is strong and the desk is firm with no wobbles.


HP LaserJet Pro M277dw Wireless All-in-One Color Printer

This is a great printer, as many others have attested, but there’s just one serious flaw: the setup instructions. The ones which shipped with my printer incorrectly instruct the user to remove a transparent piece of plastic over the scanning glass used by the ADF, however doing so will ensure the ADF always jams (as several other reviewers have noted). Do NOT remove this piece of plastic!!


Oculus Rift – Virtual Reality Headset

I’ve finally received the Rift I pre-ordered 6 minutes into launch, and my first experience with it blew me away.

Having read every article, every review, and having a dedicated tab in Chrome open to the Oculus Subreddit, reading all I could before I finally got my hands on my own unit, I didn’t expect to feel the amount presence that I did. I was worried about the negativity towards the FOV (field of view), the resolution, and the “godrays” (crepuscular rays). I was preparing for disappointment, and I’m glad I was, because I was able to appreciate it all the more. I’ve now also had the experience of thoroughly testing out the HTC Vive, which I also pre-ordered and received the same day as the Rift, so I can offer some comparisons as well.


Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i Mobile Document Scanner

It scans photographs pretty well. I don’t think it’s quite as good as my Epson v500, but it’s “good enough” unless you’re doing archival work and want the absolute best result you can get.
The software does little to no post-processing, and your only choice of output for photographs is JPG
