Affectionately known to our editor-in-chief as Ida “Lothbrok”, she is our very own Viking shield-maiden ready to write about her experiences with various products we review. As everyone is different, so is our use cases for products that we review. Ida has a passion for sustainability and environment.

Gelids Flexmount Duo - Gas powered arm waving for the work from home force

Read more: Gelids Flexmount Duo - Gas powered arm waving for the work from home forceDual monitor setups is pretty much the bare essentials for most people these days. Aside from wasting a lot of precious desk real estate, sitting monitors directly on the desk surface is awful ergonomics. The smart play is to invest in a monitor arm, but not all monitor arms are born equal.

CyberPower CP1500EPFCLCD - More than just power

With thanks to CyberPower, we get to bring the focus on keeping one of our essentials running longer, and better.

So, let’s have a look into an amazing piece of technology, courtesy of Seagate, as we are building and testing a Surveillance Station based on a Synology NAS.

Nevertheless at DRN we press on in the face of challenges and bring you our thoughts on the MX Keys.
