True Wireless Earbuds, Dockin LED Wireless Bluetooth Earphone with Charging Dock Truly Wireless Stereo Headphone Mini Twins Waterproof Earphones Black

Short Review:  In the world of truly wireless earbuds, you have a lot of options.  You can spend $300+ on a pair or get some as cheap as $30.  All have very mixed reviews, even the expensive versions.  I opted to try these from Dockin and must say I am very IMPRESSED.  Do they have issues? Yes but not many and the issues I have seen are present in all of these that I have tried (Even my Bose and JayBirds)

So what are those issues?

1.) Video Sync – When using both earbuds SOMETIMES the video and audio is out of sync.  I will admit, these actually have less sync issues than my JayBirds!

2.) Earbuds losing connection with each other – This normally happens outside in congested areas. I have this issue with all my wireless earbuds.

Pros
1.) Performance – These perform VERY WELL.  I experience VERY FEW connection issues or drops! Battery performance is great and so is sound performance!

2.) Audio Quality – Audio Quality is GREAT for the price.  Some of the best I have heard on truly wireless earbuds.  They have plenty of bass, plenty of volume, and most everything sounds very good on them.  I watch movies, listen to music, and have voice calls. Everything is GREAT

3.) Battery – Depending on Volume, content, and other factors I get 2 – 3 hours from the earbuds themselves PLUS I get 4 – 5 charges from the battery case. So you are looking at 8 – 12 hours or so total on average!

4.) Touch Controls – I have used several different brands with very sensitive touch controls making them hard to use.  These have GREAT touch controls.

5.) Can use individually (The right earpiece is the “main”)

6.) Excellent quality charge case

7.) Easy pairing – They go into pairing mode when you turn them on.  Nothing else needed

8.) Holds very strong connections

9.) Quickly charges

Tested with

1.) Android

2.) IPhone

3.) Microsoft Surface

4.) TV

5.) Kindle Fire

Overall: These are GREAT and something I highly recommend!  They are super simple to use, have great sound quality, and the price can’t be beat!

ICE Orb Levitating/Floating Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker


Short Review: There are a lot of lower cost generics out there that work like this but cost a lot less.. don’t fall for the low price of those! While they “float” and while they play music, they don’t do it nearly as well as this! The ICE Orb feels like a premium product, it sounds like a premium product, and it looks like a premium product!

Pros
1.) Sound Quality – This speaker is still small so don’t expect room filling sound! But this is plenty for office filling sound or small room filling sound! The speaker is loud and clear.. it has just the right amount of bass.. lows and highs sound great on it! It has plenty of volume..

2.) Easy to pair

3.) Premium Materials – I owned one of the cheap generics once.. it felt cheap! It looked cheap! It even sounded cheap! Not this speaker, it looks premium, feels premium and sounds premium! Materials are great and this feels like a premium product

4.) Floats and floats well! Making this a great conversation starter!

5.) Includes USB port on base to charge the speaker! One of the generics I owned you had to charge the base from USB and then the speaker.. you couldn’t charge he speaker from the base like you can here.. Excellent feature!

6.) Callers can hear me very loud and very clear!

Tested with and works with
1.) iPhone
2.) Android
3.) Windows Computer
4.) Apple computer
5.) iPad
6.) Kindle fire HDX

Overall: I highly recommend this speaker! It’s wonderful quality and works very well..

SUVOM 23.6 Inch LED Widescreen Frameless Monitor Full HD (Super Slim Display 1920×1080 5ms DVI VGA) (Silver Stand)

Video Review Here

UPDATED REVIEW:  I wanted to update this review now that I have a video review for this product!! This monitor is STILL AMAZING!!  I highly recommend it.. Original review below with new video

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

Brydge 12.3 Bluetooth Keyboard for Microsoft Surface

Short Review (Summary): Excellent Keyboard, One that fixes one of Microsofts Flaws.. Now don’t get me wrong, I actually like the Microsoft Keyboards (The type covers) but the flaw I speak of is the fact that Microsoft hasn’t came out with a keyboard like this for the pro 4 surfaces! We all know they can, the Surface book has one but Microsoft refuses to make a smaller version of the Surface Book keyboard for their Pro 4 tablets! I would gladly spend $200+ on an official one from Microsoft if they made it! With that being said, this keyboard from Brydge Technologies is EXCELLENT! It has a premium feel, it works GREAT, and the touchpad is fine! Thank you Brydge for doing this! Maybe Microsoft can learn from you all!

My Use: I use on a Surface Pro 4 and have been using this almost exclusively for 1 month now.. No issues and battery still charged! After 1 month, its still at a green level charge even!.. No damage has been done to my surface either

Tips (First I would like to address some of the complaints I have read as an IT guy)
1.) You can set the touchpad to be disabled if you use another mouse.. This option is found in your system settings under mouse on Windows 10..
2.) The touchpad is very sensitive but this can also be changed under your system settings..
3.) Microsoft wont allow ANY third party company to use their port that the normal keyboards use.. Don’t blame Brydge, blame Microsoft for this.. I’m sure Brydge would use it if they could!!
4.) A lot of YouTube videos say they keyboard has to be turned on/off.. I never turn mine off and have used it for over a month now on the first charge.. It will SLEEP when you close you Surface..
5.) This comes setup for the surface pro 4 or the new surface pro tablets.. BUT you have rubber inserts for Surface 3 tablets

Pros
1.) Very strong Bluetooth connection.. This works just as well as expensive Bluetooth keyboards, like apple keyboards and whatnot
2.) Has all the buttons that official Microsoft Surface Type Covers have.. It includes volume buttons, email buttons, play buttons and more.. Mostly in the same place as the type cover buttons so no need to learn new buttons
3.) Keyboard feels GREAT in hand and keys are very comfortable to use..
4.) Backlight is great and can be turned off
5.) I have been using mine very heavily for a month now and still on the original charge
6.) Easy to read battery indicator. Just press the battery button!
7.) Easy to pair
8.) Quick Start guide will have you up and running in 2 minutes or less
9.) VERY premium build and materials! This doesn’t feel like some cheap crappy keyboard! It is very nice and has an expensive Surface or Apple feel to it
10.) I have NEVER dropped any keystrokes! It always registers them all everytime and the first time!
11.) Price – This only cost slightly more than a regular Surface Type cover!
12.) Turns the Surface Pro 4 into a SURFACE BOOK type tablet
13.) Matches the Surface perfectly! Looks like Microsoft built this!
14.) Feels GREAT using on your lap or in the car or on a plane!
15.) Holds the surface VERY WELL!! I have no worries my surface will fall out of this keyboard!

Cons (Advice to Brydge)
1.) No Battery Bank – I know it would be fairly hard to charge the surface from a battery in the Keyboard but even a built in battery bank would work wonders!
2.) No USB hub – I would gladly plug this keyboard into my one USB slot (If you provide a slim cable) and it would be great if the Keyboard had a USB Hub built in!

Overall: I hope Microsoft learns from this and learns that their is a market for hard keyboards like their Surface Book Keyboard.. There is no reason, other than them not wanting to, to not provide us with the option to buy keyboards like this.. I hope Brydge is very successful with this Keyboard and hope that Microsoft learns and makes one themselves!

13 Inch Leather Vintage Rustic Crossbody Messenger Courier Satchel Bag Gift Men Women ~ Business Work Briefcase Carry Laptop Computer Book Handmade Rugged & Distressed ~ Everyday Office College School

Short Review: After buying a few other Rustic Town leather pieces, I decided to splurge and buy their Vintage Leather laptop carrier!! In order to enjoy any of their gear, you must enjoy NATURAL and REAL Leather.. Their items have that strong leather smell to them that I love.. Their items have that “Not so perfect” leather finish to them that I love!! Their items have that rustic and vintage look that I love!! Quality of this laptop carrier is amazing! It offers a thick, real leather outside and a very soft microfiber style inside to protect your gear.. The has a divider inside if you are carrying multiple items!! Its a great piece, one that I HIGHLY recommend!

Pros
1.) Wonderful Quality
2.) Real RUSTIC leather
3.) Provides GREAT protection for your laptop and other gear
4.) Wonderful Value
5.) Matches the rest of the Rustic Town leather line! Goes GREAT with my leather notebook from them and my leather pencil pouch from them
6.) People compliment me everyday from having the matching line of stuff!! I originally purchased the Rustic Town pencil pouch, just to carry a few USB cables because I needing something durable. But now I have an entire matching set because it was so AWESOME!!
7.) Extremely soft inside

Overall: This is a GREAT line of products and is a great bag! Any person who enjoys leather will love anything that Rustic Town makes! I highly recommend this to anyone

MixMart 24000mAh Power Bank with 3-USB Ports & 1-AC Outlet for All Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones

Use: I grabbed this to use with my Microsoft Surface on the go! USB powerbanks don’t offer enough power to really charge the surface!!

Short Review: Excellent CHARGER and it last for a very very long time if just charging from the USB ports. When you turn on the AC outlet, it does drain the external battery VERY quickly but did offer enough power to charge my surface fully over 1 time WHILE I was using it!! To me, this is excellent performance! Final note, you can use the AC outlet and USB ports at the same time and provide powerful charging to multiple devices!!

Pros
1.) Very Durable – This is a large device so I have accidently dropped it a few times but no issues!
2.) AC Outlet – This is the best part of this power bank! The AC Outlet can be used on several devices (See list of my test below).. Depending on the device, it might drain this power bank fairly quickly however.. My surface can drain it from 100% to empty in right over one full charge (while the surface is being used).. To help you visualize this a little better. the Surface batter is UNDER 5500mAH and this battery bank offers 24000mAH in power
3.) TRUE 24000mAH battery – when using the USB ports, this battery does seem to be a full 24000mAH.. It charged my phone over 6 times with no issues on a single charge.. My phone has a 3500mAH battery .. 3500mAH X 6 Charges = 21,000mAH and after 6 charges I have power left so it will probably charge it fully one more time if I needed it to
4.) Rubber Finish – Being a larger device and semi heavy, this grip is very welcome
5.) 3 USB ports
6.) Emergency Light
7.) Can charge my Surface and Mobile phone at the same time
8.) Can charge multiple devices QUICKLY at the same time

Tested AC Outlet with
1.) Microsoft Surface – 1 full charge while being used
2.) Desk Lap – Powered for 5 hours and still had power left! The lamp was however using an LED bulb
3.) Cell Phone Charger – Tested just for the heck of it.. The battery drains much quicker using the Cell Phone Charger vs a USB port but it does work.. Id recommend USB port for charging tablets and phones
4.) Paper Shredder – Using it for business I tested with a paper shredder and it worked wonderfully all day!!
5.) Computer (With power strip) – I tested with the computer and monitor only (Didn’t want to overload it) and received about 25 minutes!! This is about average for smaller APC units.. I would say this is very impressive!

Tested USB ports with
1.) Nexus 6P – 6 full charges and power left
2.) IPhone 6 – 6 full charges and power left
3.) Kindle Fire HDX – 4 full charges but plenty of power for MORE full charges
4.) Generic Android Phone (With small battery) – 8 full charges and plenty of power left
5.) Nintendo 3DS – Plenty of power left after several charges
6.) GoPro, Yi Action Cams, and YI M1 Cameras – Charged all with no issues

Cons
1.) Size – This isn’t huge but it is much larger than a standard 24000mAH power bank! I really hope over the years, companies can make these smaller because they work wonderfully well!!

Basically, it should work fine with ANY USB device that allows charging over USB.. It should work with MOST AC Outlet devices as well!!

Overall: Simply impressive device!! One I would recommend to anyone! For my use, it works GREAT..
