Ten Great Computer Technician Products That I Recommend

Computer TechnicianHello everyone,

I love all things “tech” and I love to buy tech products! Since I have an “obsessive-compulsive” personality, I thoroughly investigate every product that I am considering, always looking for the best combination of quality and price. Sometimes weeks will go by before I make my final buying decision because I cannot “pull the trigger” until I have left “no stone un-turned.”

We all need to buy tech products but not everybody has the time to do the proper research. Today I would like to give you ten great products that I recommend (these products are aimed much more towards computer technicians). I don’t expect everyone to agree, but I can assure you that I have definitely “done my homework” on these products and you can buy them with total confidence. I hope this helps someone!

1) Canned Air: Belkin Blaster Canned Air 12 oz. ( you need to use canned air. Highly pressurized with a variable pressure control. Blow out all the junk from your computer and CPU fan.

2) Electric Duster: Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac 500-Watt, 0.75-HP ( I like this much more than canned air (safer, more effective & economical)! Incredibly powerful 500-Watt motor that gets rid of all dust and debris! Light, many different nozzles, runs on AC only (12′ power cord).

3) Pocket Tool Kit: Victorinox CyberTool 34 ( 34 useful tools in your pocket!     There are four different models but I like the 34 tool model. Unbeatable!!

4) Secure USB Flash Drive: Ridata 4GB EZ Twister USB 2.0 Thumb Drive ( Protect against a virus transfer with the data lock switch. Partition and password security functions. The write protect capability makes this very valuable!

5) Backlit Keyboard: Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard PK02AU ( You have to see it to believe it! Great keys, backlighting in three colors, well made. So cool!!!

6) Screwdriver/Drill Kit: Eazypower 81964 12-Inch to 17-Inch Push Pull Click Click Screwdriver/Drill Kit with 1/4-Inch Hex, Power Bits and Hexbit Drill Bit ( Great manual screwdriver. Great for narrow spaces, no battery, can drill through thin metal. Comes in various sizes/models.

7) Portable Network Switch: TRENDnet 5-Port 10/100Mbps Switch (Plastic) ( Man this thing is great! Less than $12! Spread out your internet connection!!

8) Clamp Flashlight: Blackfire BBM888 65-Lumens LED Clamplight ( I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS PRODUCT YET but I will soon. It just looks so cool!!! If you try it let me know your thoughts.

9) HDD Docking Station: Thermaltake BlacX eSATA USB Docking Station ( These “toasters” are the best! Supports USB and eSATA!! 2.5″ & 3.5″ drives. eSATA is so much faster than USB 2.0.

10)USB to PS2 Adapter: BYTECC BT-2000 USB to PS2 Adapter ( When you have to connect a PS/2 mouse and/or keyboard to a USB port. Great and very cheap!

Professor Randy says: Quality computer repair is an art! Enjoy your craft and be more productive with these great tools!!
