Federico's Tech Recommendations

Gadgets that I use in my own life.

Updated: 23rd September, 2018

TP-Link PowerLine Adaptor

Always better than WiFi... Highly configurable too

100 - 1000 Mbps With or without Pass-through 1 - 2 Ethernet ports 300 meter range

An adaptor that lets you game or stream with Ethernet-like ping, even when your room doesn't have an Ethernet connection. [Amazon UK Link]

NETGEAR Dual-Band WiFi Router

Supports new and old WiFi devices simultaneously

2.4 GHz band 300 Mbps
5 GHz band 837 Mbps
4 Ethernet ports

Robust little WiFi access point that I use to extend WiFi to the back of my house, using the PowerLine adaptor as the input. Also has 4 Ethernet ports. [Amazon UK Link]

Samsung 860 EVO Solid State Drive

Use this to save your aging laptop or give your PC a power-up

2.5 inch internal form-factor
512 MBps Sequential Read/Write

Solid State Drive that I can't recommend enough. I replaced the failing Hard Disk Drive in my 4-year-old laptop and it was as if I bought a new computer. I also use one as the main drive in my PC. [Amazon UK Link]

Creative Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1 External USB Sound Card

External sound card for music boost and ease of use

5.1 Surround Sound
Tactile Dial

External Sound Card so that I could boost the energy to my Surround-Sound speakers from my PC. An added benefit is that it moves the sound controls from software (my operating system (Windows 7)) to hardware (a physical dial), which is so nice to have if you like tactile feedback and not fidgeting with screen controls.
