Ravpower Filehub: Unboxing And Review

On our last trip to China, We Know Products was able to try out the RAVPower FileHub. A wireless router and power bank, this little device comes in handy especially during travel (such as when you find yourself in a Shenzhen hotel room with so-so Internet).

WATCH The Unboxing And Review:

As you can see in the video, the RAVPower FileHub works pretty well. You plug it into the ethernet port, and then you can get better WiFi on all your devices. We got 15 mbps upload and download — super impressive.

Don’t sleep on the document storage feature. With an SD card (or a microSD card with an adapter), we were able to transfer files easily from a computer.

Our one knock on the RAVPower FileHub is its UI, which is, to say the least, not that great. But in terms of function, it is more than capable. This solves a fundamental problem of travel, dealing with the vagaries of foreign WiFi connections. Now, we have a WiFi router with the same username and password, wherever we go. Definitely worth the $55.

We’ve been using various keyboards and computer mice for years — pretty much our entire lives in fact. I do not know about you, but I am fed up of wires. It’s time to go wireless. Wireless technology provides people more freedom to move freely and utilize space in the best possible way. Without wires, we can organize everything at our home or office better. Working in an environment without any stress can increase our overall productivity. If we sit in front of the computer, we may suffer from headaches and pain in our necks, backs, shoulders and arms. However, if we go wireless, we can sit anywhere we like — even our sofa! — and get work down. It’s tie to make the switch. Turns out, wireless accessories are not even all that expensive.

Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse

As you may have noticed, the wireless mouse is becoming more and more popular in recent years. It offers more convenience and flexibility over wired ones. Compared to the corded mouse, we can use the wireless mouse at a larger range and never need to worry about the cords getting tangled up. A wireless mouse offers greater portability, which means we can pack it along with our laptop without the hassle of wires. Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse can be used on any surface, even glass, without a mouse pad. The mouse pad has become a thing of the past with the development of infrared technology.

My favorite feature of this Logitech mouse is its ability to control up to three computers with just one flow-enabled mouse. Research indicates that adding a second monitor improves productivity greatly because dual-screen display allow us to switch between applications faster, segment our tasks and view documents side-by-side. With Logitech Easy-Switch technology, the mouse can pair with up to three devices and switch between them with the touch of a button. We can transfer text, images, and files between our computers effortlessly. Unlike other wireless mice, the rechargeable Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse does not rely on battery power. In fact, it can be used for an entire day after just 3 minutes of charging. A full charge can last over 70 days.

Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard

A cordless keyboard is an excellent add-on to our computer setup because we can place it in anywhere we want in the room or office. A wireless keyboard operates much the same as its wired counterpart, except it is operated by infrared radiations and signals. The wireless keyboard is free to move a greater distance and has a faster response time. Wireless keyboards are designed to keep our space uncluttered. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is a portable and useful accessory for people such as programmers who use computers for long periods of time.

Some wireless keyboards are not universal, which means they only work with certain models. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is compatible with nearly all models and devices such as Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Android, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV. As long as the devices are Bluetooth-enabled and support external keyboards with HID profile. Similar to the Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse, this keyboard can also connect up to three devices simultaneously and switch between them easily. All you need to do in order to type and switch between 3 devices is to click on any of the three yellow buttons on the upper-left corner of the keyboard. The combination of Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse and Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard creates a central workstation for multiple computers. We can type, navigate, copy and paste between computers in one fluid workflow. Even though this is a battery-operated device, the battery life is two years. For all intents and purposes, it might as well be powered by magic.
