So you bought a new computer recently. Maybe you even upgraded it yourself (or with some help) with the latest hardware. What's next? Well, after setting up Windows and your preferred apps, it's time to consider getting some accessories to enhance your PC experience. For instance, a pair of monitor arms for your dual monitors, or a soundbar for music and movies. Here are our 5 accessories to get for your new PC. And if you need more ideas, check out our picks for wireless mice and mechanical keyboards.
Creative Stage Air V2
This S$59 Creative soundbar won't transform your audio experience, but it sounds decent, is compact enough to fit under your monitor, and can even double up as a portable wireless speaker with up to 6 hours of battery life. With support for Bluetooth, USB and 3.5mm aux, you can choose the most appropriate input for your system. If you have more to spend (or more picky about the audio), check out the S$479 Creative Katana V2 soundbar.
Logitech MX Mechanical Keyboard
The wireless Logitech MX Mechanical Keyboard (S$299) is pleasant to type on — you can choose between three types of switches, and the key travel is great. There are also shortcut keys to type emojis, take screenshots, or even mute your mic. Battery life is excellent. You can also choose between a full-size version with the numeric keypad and a 75%-layout compact mini version.
Prism+ Arc Stealth Pro
If you have more than one monitor, consider the Prism+ Arc Stealth Pro (S$119). This monitor arm supports up to three displays, thanks to a height adjustable central pole system. An additional arm costs S$69 each. This pole can also support other compatible accessories, such as a laptop holder.
Razer Kiyo X
Online video meetings aren't going away anytime soon, despite the push by firms to get workers back in the office. Seeing as few desktop monitors come with built-in webcams, it's a good idea to get a webcam like the Razer Kiyo X (S$119). It has a foldable mount that works with monitors, and even laptops. Video quality is also very decent — you can shoot 1080p at 30fps, or 720p at 60fps.
Sony Inzone H9
Play games or watch videos without disturbing your neighbours with a gaming headset like the Sony Inzone H9 (S$499). Not only is it comfortable to wear, the H9 comes with active noise cancellation, too. Audio quality is great, while its 32-hour battery life means it will last you up to a couple of days.
