New year, new office? Now that you have been back at work for a while, perhaps you noticed some of your office gadgets approaching their use-by dates. Maybe you'd like to refresh your desk with a new layout, or change up your workflow. A second monitor, for example, could be a game-changer. Or how about switching all your computer accessories from wired to wireless? Here are five office gadgets to consider.
Belkin Connect USB-C 7-in-1 Multiport Hub Adapter
Have too many accessories? Or maybe your new office laptop has just a few ports? The Belkin Connect USB-C 7-in-1 Multiport Hub Adapter has you covered. Besides having essential ports like HDMI and USB, it also has pass-through charging so your laptop still gets power when using it. This adapter is also light enough that you can carry between home and office, but it's affordable enough (it's usually S$110, but S$74 during sales) to get two.
LG DualUp Ergo Monitor
It's pretty common to have multiple monitors for work, but I bet you haven't seen anything like the LG DualUp Ergo Monitor (S$899). This 27.6-inch display has an unusual 16:18 aspect ratio, and looks like two standard 16:9 displays, but with one stacked on top of the other. Coupled with its highly adjustable monitor arm, this monitor offers new possibilities for multi-tasking, all without the ugly bezels you get with multiple displays.
HP 930 Creator Wireless Mouse
Have more than one computer at work? Instead of fiddling with multiple wired mice, the best solution is a wireless mouse like the HP 930 Creator (S$149). It can pair with multiple devices, and you simply toggle between them by pressing the side buttons. You also get 10 programmable buttons that you can assign for specific commands, depending on the app. And the mouse sensor tracks on all surfaces, including glass and fabric.
Dell Pro Webcam WB5023
Online meetings are inevitable for many of us in today's workplace. But you can remove frustrating technical issues like blurry images, and going out of frame, with a dedicated webcam like the Dell Pro Webcam WB5023 (S$223). It offers great, detailed 1080p images, even in low light. This Teams and Zoom certified webcam has a built-in stand for your monitor, and a magnetic privacy cover.
Acer Aspire Vero (2022)
Are you self-employed, and looking for a capable work laptop? The Acer Aspire Vero (from S$968) is attractively priced, and quietly breezes through typical office workloads without a hitch. Battery life is around 9 hours, which is great for a 14-inch laptop, and should last you the entire day. And it's eco-friendly, too, with 30% of its chassis made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, along with several other green features.
