My Gear

My setup is a custom-built Windows 10 PC, HP x360 Chromebook, and a Samsung Note 9 as my main mobile driver. I also use my desktop as a home media server which runs Plex. For gaming consoles, I use my PC, PlayStation 5, original PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PS TV, and Steam Link (streaming from PC). I also own many smart home gadgets including several security cameras, a smart video doorbell, Schlage smart lock, Chamberlain smart garage door opener, and Carrier’s Cor smart thermostat. Besides all of that, I’m constantly demoing, reviewing and tinkering with a multitude of gadgets including wearables, smart home tech, computers, mobile devices and much more.
