We’re looking at another Chromebook from Toshiba today. It’s the Chromebook 2, not to be confused with the Samsung Chromebook 2. The model number on this one is CB35-B3340.

This Chromebook is very interesting because it comes with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display in 13 inches.

For those who don’t know, an IPS Toshiba CB35-B3340 13.3-Inch Full HD Chromebook 2display means that you get a better quality display compared to some of the other Chromebooks out there, and noticeably so. And you also have a much better viewing angle on the display as well. IPS panels are usually found in high end expensive notebook computers, so to have it in this inexpensive Toshiba Chromebook makes it very worthy of its price tag.

The display is very sharp, the colors are very crisp and if you put this next to any other Chromebook you will definitely notice the difference.

The only drawback to the high resolution 13.3 inch screen is that you might notice icons and text to be very tiny. However, this may only be a concern if you are someone with eye sight issues and can be remedied with scaling settings.

This Toshiba Chromebook 2 has a Bay Trail Intel processer clocked at 2.16GHz. What that means is that it’s fast but perhaps not as performance orientated as other Chromebook CPU’s. The upside of this of course is that battery life is vastly improved. The average battery life for this Chromebook is 9 hours. So it’s perfect for students who are in classes all day or travellers.

And in our testing we found it to be fast. Pages load quickly and we did not notice any particular performance issues. So it works well and we don’t think performance is an issue at all.

It’s got 4GB RAM on board which is perfect for this Chromebook.

Looks and hardware wise it’s a fairly standard set up. It has a full size keyboard which feels very comfortable to type on. It’s got a very Apple like appearance with the recessed

keys and backlighting. It has a really nice trackpad that’s very accurate and responsive and feels more expensive than the computer is.

And the whole casing on this Toshiba Chromebook 2 is textured so it’s very easy to hold in your hand and not slip out. It looks and feels like a good quality notebook.

It’s about 3 pounds so a little bit heavier than other notebooks of this kind out there. This is due to the battery which gives you that full day of usage. However, 3 pounds is still pretty lightweight and you’ll have to trouble carting this one around.

Port wise this Toshiba Chromebook 2 has a headphone jack, microphone jack, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, HDMI output, SD Card slot as well as a Kensington lock so you can secure it to a desk.

All in all the Toshiba Chromebook 2 is a very good Chromebook and at a very inexpensive price compared to other Chromebooks on the market.

This is the one to take a look at.

HOT! AOC e1659FWU 16″ HD Portable Monitor

Today we’re going to review AOC’s 16 inch portable high definition LCD/LED monitor. The

AOC e1659FWU 16 inch portable LED monitor

The AOC e1659FWU 16 inch portable HD LED monitor

model number is e1659FWU, it has a 16 inch HD screen and it’s a USB monitor (USB 3.0 to be precise) so you can actually connect this to any computer. The resolution is high definition 1366×768 and it has a 500:1 contrast ratio.

It has a foldable stand in the back which is really nice and this stand allows you to rotate the monitor into either vertical or horizontal

AOC e1659FWU 16 inch portable LED monitor

The e1659FWU can be used in either landscape or portrait orientations

positions. So if you like to do portrait you can actually set it up to go vertical and the same for landscape use going horizontal. It automatically switches between the two also, so very easy to use. Very useful feature indeed. It works really well and the monitor stands folds right back into the monitor so easy to use and adds no additional bulk to the monitor when you are transporting it.

As mentioned earlier it supports USB 3.0 which is great. You get that high speed display for all that information that is being sent from your host machine. The USB connector on the monitor is a micro USB. The great thing is there is NO power required. There isn’t even a connection to connect to power even if you wanted to.

There are cheaper 16” AOC models available, however this particular model e1659FWU is much slimmer, lighter and just looks a lot more sleek. This model has USB 3.0, whereas the cheaper ones do not. And it has a brighter panel with better contrast ratio, so that’s going to set this model ahead of any others right there.

This particular portable HD monitor also gives you the VESA mount so if you’re going to mount this on the wall it has a 75mm VESA mount which will a lot of people are looking for, and this monitor delivers. So if you’d rather mount it on the wall rather than your desk then this monitor will allow that.

The stand folds back into the monitor and it is also VESA mount compatible

As this monitor is portable it also comes with a nice little padded foam carrying case. A nice touch for protecting your portable monitor while you’re on the go. Most laptop capable backpacks will also fit this monitor.

The AOC e1569FWU has very simple installation. So for Windows all you have to do is plug it in to your USB port and you’ll see that Windows goes out and automatically finds the right drivers to install. And there is actually a specific driver software for all the settings for this monitor that gets launched automatically when you plug it in. So not only does it install the driver automatically in Windows it installs the necessary software. And it’s a similar story for Mac, everything should be automatically loaded for you.

I should mention that all of the controls for this portable monitor are on screen. There are no hard controls on the monitor itself. No power button, no OSD menu button etc. It’s all software driven. That might irk some people, but we mostly think it’s neither here nor there.

This stunning portable monitor weighs in at only 2.4 lbs, or 1.1kg, so amazingly portable considering it is a 16″ monitor. It is also incredibly slim at only 0.9″ thick, or 23mm.

The e1659FWU at only 0.9″ (23mm) thick is very portable

Build quality is excellent and the monitor does not feel “plasticky” or cheap. It has a piano black glossy finish which just feels so luxurious. This is the perfect accessory for those on the go…. business presenters, mobile IT technicians, travellers… anyone who wants to have the power of a decent sized and quality HD monitor anywhere they go.

An excellent portable monitor and at an amazingly low price too.

If you’re in the market for a HD portable monitor then we recommend you try this one.

HooToo USB Hub – 7-Port USB 3.0 HT-UH010

Today we’re going to be checking out HooToo’s 7 port USB hub. This is for desktop. It also has 2 extra ports for charging, both with different voltages.

It is USB 3.0 with 5 GB/s data transfer speed. It accepts flash drives. It’s got dual charging ports. And one of the best features, it accepts external SATA hard drives. It HooToo HT-UH010 7-Port USB Hubwon’t have any trouble reading them, especially with that fast USB 3.0 data transfer speed.

The packaging comes with the HooToo USB Hub itself, a 3 foot (1 metre) USB 3.0 cable along with the power brick and cable. It also comes with a Quick Start guide and a Warranty Card (the hub comes with 12 months warranty but if you fill out the Warranty Card and send it off they’ll give you an extra 6 months).

The hub itself looks quite elegant with its black finish and would fit nicely on any desk. It measures 5.7 x 1.7 x 0.9 inches or 145 x 43 x 23 in millimetres. It has a matte black finish on the sides and a glossy black finish on top. It has a good weight to it, and coupled with the rubber bottom it will not stay put on your desk and won’t slide around everywhere or accidentally get knocked off.

On one end you’ve got your USB for plugging it in to your computer, along with the power plug.

On top of the HooToo USB Hub you have your 7 USB 3.0 ports. These are all numbered 1-7 and each has its own LED to indicate when something is plugged in and using the connection. The ports are all USB 3.0 so none of the outdated USB 2.0 ports make an appearance. However, it is backwards compatible and will certainly support your USB 2.0/1.1 devices.

HooToo HT-UH010 7-Port USB 3.0 HubAlso on the top you’ve got your two charging ports. One for 1-Amp out and the other for 2.1-Amp out. These charging ports are self-modulating as well so if you plug a 2-Amp product into the 2.1-Amp supply then that will modulate down to 2-Amps to suit your device. These charging ports are ideal for your mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.

It is plug-n-play compatible, no drivers needed. So just plug it in and start using it!

This is a fantastic product that is ideal for anyone who wants to expand their desktop with more USB ports. And the charging ports are a very nice touch. We think this HooToo USB Hub is a great quality product and well worth its price tag.
