SUVOM 23.6 Inch LED Widescreen Monitor Full HD (1920×1080 DVI VGA) (Silver Stand)

Video Review Here

Short Review (Summary): Excellent Monitor, 0 dead pixels, and very easy setup!! Looks great! NICE LARGE SCREEN! And works wonderfully well! I will be using this more over the next few days/weeks and will update this review while I do! Pictures should be coming soon!

My Use: I will be using this is my Microsoft Surface Tablet.. It works well and all I had to do is buy a cable that would fit my surface. I am NOT USING this with the surface dock, just a DVI cable

Pros:
1.) Full HD – 1080P is full HD.. Yeah, their are higher res screens on the market, but be prepaired to pay more for those! 1080 is plenty if you are on a budget but want a crystal clear picture!

2.) Bright and Vibrant!

3.) Easy Setup – Like most new monitors or TVs, really all you have to do is screw on the base. Very simple! Everything else is done automatically (Like adjusting the picture) but if you are like me, you can always fine tune the picture. I do that because I love bright.

4.) Uses DVI or VGA – I do wish it has HDMI but it doesn’t.. That is my only con (See Cons)

5.) Quality is GREAT.. Don’t expect Apple quality but this is much better than the last AOC Monitor or other basic Big Box store monitors.. I have NEVER had one of those without a dead pixel (I might just have bad luck) but this Suvom DOES NOT have any dead pixels.. Build quality also seems nice, doesn’t feel cheap! As long as it last for a 4 or 5 years, I will be VERY HAPPY!!

6.) MAC AND WINDOWS – Works with both mac and Windows! No issues

7.) Works with Raspberry Pie – This also works with my raspberry pie!!! Great monitor for that if you are into those!

Cons
1.) No HDMI Ports

2.) No speakers but not a huge issue

Overall: This is better than most budget monitors on the market!! I am very happy with mine and it works very well for my needs.. I will be using it and keeping an eye on quality, but for the price i HIGHLY recommend this

Steam Link

I got this for $15 during the Steam Summer sale and it is well worth that! I only have access to setting this up via a WiFi connection, and while that is not ideal for all games, it is working fine on the games I am using it for.. Keep in mind, this does NOT run games.. it streams them from your computer! If your computer is slow with games, this probably won’t work very well..

I am using it to play the following games and types of games without any issues

1.) Older PC games
2.) Graphic Novels (Anime, Life is Strange, that type of stuff)
3.) Older XBox Games (Fabel Anniversary, Half Life, Games like that)

For those games it works GREAT over WiFi! I am also playing some newer games with it, without any issues but I do turn graphics down on those games so it streams better..

I also have it set at 720P which helps streaming over WiFi

Keep in mind, I am using a very high quality 5ghz router which helps the streaming significantly..

Pros
1.) Very easy setup! Basically, when I plugged it in, and sign into my network it found my games and my computer.. super easy!

2.) Works very well with the steam controller!

3.) Includes everything you need (HDMI, Cat5, Power Adapter)

4.) Works well with steam controller and Bluetooth controller’s (keep in mind, a controller is not included)

Tips
1.) Some games on steam aren’t designed to use with controllers.. I find those games sometimes have issues using steam link.. basically I lost sync with my controller at times.. This doesn’t happen on games that are designed to work with controllers

2.) While a wired network is probably best, a high quality wireless network works fine on most games

Overall: I never wanted to pay full price for this, knowing I didn’t have good access to a wired network, but for the price I paid, I am very happy with it! It’s working well for my needs, my games, and my setup.. With that being said, knowing it works for me, I’d happily pay full price for this.

NEXGADGET Video Projector, GP80 Series 1800 Lumens LCD Mini Projector, Multimedia Home Theater Video Projector Support 1080P HDMI USB SD Card VGA AV for Home Cinema Theater Video Games Movie Night

Short Review: Excellent Video Projector, full of features and offers a very bright bulb!! Great for on the road presentations and just winding down in the hotel playing games at night!! Can even be used at home!

Pros
1.) Bright Bulb – Bulb brightness, for me, makes the picture look MUCH BETTER than other cheap projectors!!

2.) Very CLEAR and SHARP on Videos!

3.) VERY CLEAR AND SHARP on power point presentations

4.) Built in speaker is fine (If you plan on showing videos to larger groups, you might want a larger speaker to plug into this)

5.) Easy to navigate menus

6.) Great Picture Size Range From about 35 inches to over 135 inches.. I found the BEST RANGE to be in the 75 – 85 inch range if you want the BEST picture!! But it does go much larger and can go much smaller

7.) Plenty of hookups!!

8.) Doesn’t get very hot like a lot of other projectors do!

Uses
1.) Do you travel and have to show presentations? I do and a lot of times I cant expect my venue to have a projector.. I really hate carrying super large projectors with me.. This is NICE AND PORTABLE!!

2.) Do you travel and hate how hotels wont allow you to plug things into their TVs (Some allow this and some don’t).. Well just ignore their tv and plug your game system into this!

3.) Just want an inexpensive home entertainment system? This is GREAT FOR THAT!

Overall: Great projector! I highly recommend this, it works very well!

UPGRADED Stud Finder Sharkk Multi-Function Precision Wood Metal and AC Electrical Wire Scanning Wall Stud Finder Detector with LCD Display

My Use: Needed to install wall mount for 65 INCH TV.. Mount needs to be in studs in order to be “Safe”

Short Review: Excellent FULL of FEATURES stud finder!! I used this today to help install a flat screen TV mount and it worked wonderfully well!! It’s so easy to use and the buttons and grip are all very natural!

Pros
1.) No “HOLDING” buttons – No need to hold the “Power” button or stud finding button like a lot of cheaper models.. Just press it once and move the finder! Holding is very uncomfortable on cheaper models

2.) Bright Screen

3.) Easy to read screen

4.) Easy to read ICONS

5.) Nice “BEEP” adding an audible way to know where studs or power lines are

6.) Can easily find “Power Lines” inside your wall

7.) Includes battery

Overall: Simply put, this allowed me to hand my 65 inch tv mount easily! Now I don’t have any worries about the 65 INCH TV falling off my wall
