Prelude I have been writing here about my home networking experiments for more than a decade. In 2010 I shared the daisy-chaining wireless access points, in 2014 about installing a load-balancer to get failover between the two TELCOs (Airtel & BSNL), and, in 2019 on the two wi-fi routers (TPLINK Archer C50 & Mi Router 3C) I had bought. On the last one, it seems I had erred in my choice, as the routers didn’t have a Gigabit LAN port which I needed. In the recent weeks of 2020, I have been facing issues with frequent call disconnections during video calls and…

I have written quite a few times here on my love for Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard and mouse. One particular model the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 I used for over a decade from 2007. Two years back I tried to have an affair with Logitech MK850 Keyboard but I quickly realised my mistake and bought a Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard, which felt fantastic but was a disappointment due to its poor connectivity with Bluetooth. I am a fast three finger typist, so it annoys me when a keyboard lags behind my keypress and appearing on the screen, so wireless keyboards…

Now with the online classes my son is spending more time than ever on his laptop – to attend school and then to watch Netflix, Amazon & YouTube. I noticed he has been wearing his Sony MDR-10RBT headset for several hours a day. I decided to get him a good speaker system that can connect to his laptop. He was particular he is able to listen clearly to the conversations during video calls and the dialogues in the TV shows he watches. Disclosure: I write reviews about products that I have bought for my usage and paid in full. There…

Logitech Brio 4K Camera A few months ago, I had written about what I did to improve the lighting during my video calls. Even with that the web camera in my laptop (ASUS ZenBook Pro) was not able to produce quality videos. This week my son took over my laptop as his laptop broke down. So, I had to move to my desktop PC which I did after installing Windows 10. The PC obviously didn’t have an inbuilt webcam. That meant I had to buy a new web camera. After much searching, I bought a Logitech Brio 4K from a local electronics…

Recently I had purchased an Oculus Quest 2, a Virtual Reality Headset (VR wearable device) from Facebook. This review is my initial reactions after using it for a couple of hours. Disclosure: I write reviews about products that I have bought for my usage and paid in full. There were no sponsorship or advertisement or commission of any sort involved in this post.  I have a Google Daydream VR that I connect with my Google Pixel 2 phone. I don’t play video games so the novelty of a VR wears off quickly. In the last two years, I have used…
