Quick Tip: What is an UPS?

If you own a desktop computer, which is an investment or an appliance of value, you may want to invest in purchasing a UPS (uninterrupted power supply). An uninterruptible power supply (UPS), offers guaranteed power protection for connected electronics. When power is interrupted, or fluctuates outside safe levels, a UPS will instantly provide clean battery backup power and surge protection for plugged-in, sensitive equipment. Typically, during a power outage, the UPS will keep the equipment stable for a prescribed amount of runtime (depending on the type/model UPS you install). The time element gives you enough time to safely shut down the computer to prevent component damage and loss of data.  Many UPS will come with a bank of outlets. For example, I own the APC UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector 650 which gives me a total of 8 outlets (4 on each side of the UPS). The important part to note here is that 4 of those outlets provide “battery back up & surge protection” and the other 4 provide on (surge protection).  I typically plug in the computer, monitor, router, and modem into the battery backup side and other less significant devices (such as a printer) in the other surge protection outlet. This particular UPS (APC UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector 650) is rated for approximately a half hour of runtime during a complete outage.

In the end, investing in one of these is like having an insurance policy that will help keep your computer and electronics running smoothly, even during those times when you have power fluctuations and outages.

How To Shop For Your Computer and Information Technology (IT) Needs At Amazon

Here is how I shop for my computer and information technology needs at Amazon (including laptopsdesktopsmonitors, tabletsPC gaminghard drives & storageaccessoriescomponentsnetworking, and Amazon’s Choice).

Image result for tech products

I use Amazon on a regular basis to research and shop for information technology products. The main reason is to research the products that are available and to research what other people are saying (via customer reviews). If you see a low number of reviews, the product may be relatively new to their listings; whereas, if you see a very large number of reviews, good chance the product has been around for a while and has real-world consumer testing.

After finding a selection for a specific item, Google that item for price comparisons elsewhere. You may end up buying from somewhere else other than Amazon. If that is the case, I typically will look at the customer reviews again.

Another option, when looking at products. Typically, right below the product picture, you will see a link “Used & New”. Always check that… I look for “Used – Acceptable” items that have cosmetic imperfections, etc… The cosmetic imperfections often are items where the packaging is not perfect.  I have purchased items this way and haven’t had to return anything as of yet.

Especially pay attention to “Amazon’s Choice” where Amazon makes their selection for specific products. Their choices are typically right on and are good choices.

I need a Webcam. What should I buy?

I need a Webcam. What should I buy? 

I have always had a preference for Logitech products. If I was buying for myself, I would go with either of the 2 options below.  The $20 camera is at a lower resolution but will work fine.  The $67 camera is at a higher resolution.  You can read the reviews on both and you can see some samples that people have uploaded. Both cameras are compatible with Windows 7 thru Windows 10.

A Best Seller: Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera with Night Vision

The Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera is the most inexpensive (and reliable) way that I have found to make your home safe using today’s wireless camera technology. These cameras are phenomenal at a price point that is hard to pass up. The good on this particular camera is that it is equipped with motion and sound detection, and get this, it comes with free-rolling 14-day cloud storage (to store video footage). You can (and should) add a microSD card to this setup to store local footage. Mounting this camera is a piece a cake (comes with an adhesive plate that allows the camera to be mounted magnetically to the plate).
