Ask These Before Buy Cartridges Online

The internet and the numerous quality office stationery suppliers that can now be found online means that it is easier than ever before for businesses to find what they need for the office environment, ranging from printer cartridges right through to reams of printer paper, pens, computer parts, and many other accessories and items.

However, buying online does not come without its risks. It is very easy to make mistakes when buying certain items that have to have certain specifications, and it is also hard to ascertain the quality of items before you buy. In addition to this, it is often difficult to know who is a reputable supplier before you actually place your order.

With this in mind, it is important to keep a few things in mind when you buy certain stationery products. Some of the products that you should be careful about buying online are printer cartridges. The reason for this is that printer cartridges can be particularly costly, and certain aspects such as quality and price can have a significant impact on your business.

Firstly, you will need to make sure that your cartridges are of the highest quality possible to meet your needs and stay within your budget. The quality of a new cartridge will depend on a number of things. It can refer to the colour and the appearance of ink as it is printed on a page, or it can indeed refer to its effect on your printer warranty.

Therefore, when you invest in this particular stationery item, it is important to make sure that the quality is good enough for you to spend your budget. There is a simple and easy way to do this, and that is by going straight to your printer manufacturer and asking for they advice on the best product available.

In the majority of cases, a printer company will advise you to buy their own brand name products. Indeed, this is often the way to get high quality and prevent the voiding of any warranty that you may have on your printer. With that said, these can be expensive, and it may be worth finding a viable and cost-effective alternative that is also of quality.

In this case, it is necessary to find an office stationery supplier that is able to advise you on the best products to buy. To do this, look for a retailer that specialises in delivering high quality stationery products for a business and private customers. They will often be likely to advise you on the variety of products that they have in stock and whether they are suitable or not for your needs.

Secondly, bear in mind that you can often make a mistake when ordering your printer cartridges. Many people can easily become confused with the various printer models, cartridge sizes and printer cartridge colours; it is not unheard of to order the wrong products on a surprisingly frequent basis.

This reason, check that the retailer that you are buying from is able to offer you a good refund and return process in the case that you make an error. This is vitally important, as mistakes are quite common. If you are able to know that you can return and exchange your items hassle-free, you will not lose money and you will not have to deal with the stress of dealing with a difficult supplier.

Thirdly and finally, make sure that you have a good printer cartridge specialist on hand should you run into any issues. Often, your printer manufacturer will be able to deliver this kind of support and advice service to you. However, you may find that your stationery retailer will be able to give you ample advice and help should you need it.

There are several important points to consider, from selecting the right products right through to how to get the most use out of your cartridge. Importantly, using a good office stationery specialist will help you give the right balance between quality and cost effectiveness. In addition to this, they will often be able to give you plenty of free advice as a valued customer.

All About 3D Printing

How far can technology go? As far as one’s imagination it seems. The advancement in technology today leads many people to enjoy the convenience and ease it brings. Every year, a new technological idea is presented to the public and one of them even makes one’s dream into a reality, thanks to a machine called 3D Printer.

What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is a process of printing an object that one can actually use. The process starts simple. One would create whatever image they want in a computer software and after scanning the image, it will then be sent to the printer that would then print it out in 3D format. Although it looks quite easy, and rightly so, there are different printers out there and depending on the needs and requirements of the person using it, may also differ in prices.

Applications

There are different applications that people may find useful using the printer. In the medical world such as, printers are used to make low-cost prosthetics. Since prosthetics are expensive, the 3D printed prosthetics are not only effective and found useful, it also cuts the cost of the original prosthetics and can be used to help amputees at home or shipped to war-torn countries. 3D printed ears, limbs and other body parts and medical equipment such as wheelchairs are now made using 3D printing machine. In some countries, researches are also ongoing with the possibility of one day using the equipment to print skins and other tissue material which can make skin grafting or skin replacement for patients faster and easier.

Another area where 3D printers are quite popular are with the kids. As kids becomes more inquisitive and curious with their surrounding and the campaign for creative awareness, these equipment are useful in helping kids image and create their own toys.

Interested in 3D Printing?

For beginners out there who are interested in creating or starting out in the industry, choosing the right equipment and materials are important especially if one is interested in making money out of it. The most popular filament for beginners is the PLA or Polylactic acid filament which is made of biodegradable and sustainable materials. Examples of companies that sells such filaments includes Proto-pasta, 3Dom USA, MakerBot and ColorFabb PLA. There are other companies out there that also offer other filament types and printers however, the companies mentioned above have ideal filaments that are suitable for beginners.

 

Guide To Find Better Mouse

Several years ago, I found myself wanting a better mouse. My computer at the time was a Mac Pro provided by my employer, and the aluminum keyboard and Mighty Mouse that came with it were downright awful. The laptop-style, low profile keyboard was terrible to type on and the mouse had a tiny ball for scrolling, which would get gummed up very easily.

At first, I simply traded them in for a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse set which I used for quite some time. It was a basic rubber dome keyboard and standard wireless optical mouse. They were okay. They worked. Ultimately, I wanted something better.

I noticed that my boss would try out other mice, but ultimately return to his old trackball. He explained that it was more ergonomic and he found it easier to use. Unfortunately, the model he used had long been discontinued and regularly sold for over $300 on eBay. Too rich for me. But I figured there must be some modern equivalents.

So I went on a search. My initial requirements were simple. It needed to cost less than $50 and I didn’t want to give up my scroll wheel, which seemed to be a commonly missing feature amongst trackball mice.

Logitech M570

My first stop was the trackball mouse everyone seems to go to when they ditch a regular mouse: the Logitech M570. It is a thumb style trackball with 3 buttons, a scroll wheel and a pair of back/forward buttons. The buttons and scroll wheel performed just like the other Logitech mice I had used. That meant the ball was the only thing I would need to get used to.

Unfortunately, this mouse has a relatively small ball that doesn’t have much weight to it. Because of this, I had difficulty moving the pointer any distance by spinning the ball. I also had quite a bit of difficulty with accuracy. The pointer seemed to jump around a bit. To be fair, I think I must have a thumb impediment. I never could get it to do what I wanted it to do. I can’t exactly blame that on the mouse. Even though I used it for over a month, I never really felt comfortable with it.

Pros:

  • Extra navigation buttons
  • Standard scroll wheel
  • Mouse buttons are operated with the usual fingers

Cons:

  • Small, lightweight ball tended to lift out of its place a bit
  • For me, movement was awkward with my thumb

Kensington Orbit with Scroll Wheel

The other mouse I tested was the Kensington Orbit with Scroll Ring which I was able to find on sale. The name is quite a mouthful. There is a previous version without a scroll ring simply called the Orbit. I’m not sure why they didn’t just rename it when they added a scroll ring. Anyway, it’s a center ball with two buttons and a scroll ring, which I thought was very intriguing. The ball is a bit bigger than the Logitech M570 and the buttons are noticeably firm.

I quickly adapted to using the trackball with my index and middle fingers, and the scroll ring seemed completely natural after the first few days. It took a short while to get accustomed to left-clicking with my thumb, which does present a bit of finger confusion if I need to use a regular mouse for some reason.

It was easy to spin the ball to bring the pointer from one end of a dual monitor setup to the other. I was able to accurately place the pointer where I wanted, and I found that I preferred the firmness of the buttons. This became my new favorite mouse after only a few days.

Pros:

  • Larger, heavier ball with smooth movement
  • Center ball that you move with your fingers (or whole hand) instead of your thumb
  • Smooth scroll ring

Cons:

  • Using your thumb for left click can result in a little finger confusion when switching to use regular mice for gaming or at another machine
  • Only the two buttons. It could use a third button or some navigation buttons

Conclusion

If I had less than $50 to spend on a trackball mouse, I would choose the Kensington Orbit with Scroll Ring. I prefer the middle ball, and the scroll ring is nice and smooth. Having only two buttons may be an issue for some people, but made little difference to me.

If, however, you prefer to operate the ball with your thumb, the Logitech M570 is an excellent choice for the price.

 

How To Choose Accessories For Your Laptop

Whether you plan to use your laptop for personal, for business or for gaming use, there are a variety of must-have accessories that can make the use of your laptop a lot easier to use, safer, and more efficient. Because the cost of the latest high-end laptop, it certainly benefits to invest a little more in the right accessories to get the very best out of your hardware. Here are five of the top accessories for your laptop:

Bag, carry case or backpack

The simplest and safest option to travel with a laptop is to invest in a dedicated bag, carry case or backpack. They can vary significantly in look and design to match the personal preference. Also, the size can vary from those that are only able to accept the laptop and bare essentials to those that are a lot more spacious and can include virtually you want to travel with including related laptop gear and office files and supplies. The preferred bag for a laptop is especially designed for travel and has a very sturdy carry handle.

Chill mat

There is no secret that laptops can easily overheat. A great piece of equipment to overcome this issue is the chill mat which is very effective at keeping the hardware cool. It simply sits under the laptop and helps to disperse heat via its built-in fans. Make sure to use the ergonomically design that makes it a lot easier to type.

Privacy screens

If you plan to use the laptop while travelling to and from work on a bus or train, you may want to look at a privacy screen to keep your personal information secure. This type filter is placed over the laptop screen and only makes it possible for the person sitting directly in front of laptop to read the documents you are working on. This means that anyone sitting next to you on the train isn’t able to see the information on-screen should they glance across.

Extended laptop battery

By replacing the standard battery that comes prepackaged with the laptop, you are able to enjoy the extended battery life that makes it possible to stay working unplugged for a lot longer while travelling. This can also be helpful if you are in a meeting that doesn’t have any spare power sockets and you wish to continue using the laptop.

Storage

Travelling with several USB sticks makes it possible to store and back up any important data. Plus, they are useful for sharing existing data, such as text files or images with colleagues. Most of the USB sticks are relatively small in size, yet still have great memory space to easily store plenty of information when on the go.

 

Why You Need Using Cooling Fan

Cooling fans are an essential competent for all types of electronics and electronic cabinets, as these items stop equipment from overheating and therefore ensure that equipment works optimally and does not suffer from any negative effects from heat damage.

With that said, it is also essential to put in place covers on your cooling fans for your electronics cabinet. Covers serve an important purpose and are therefore an important piece of kit to have installed. Currently, they come in a range of different materials including metals and plastic, ensuring that there is a cover to match each different type of fan.

Firstly, it is important to note that these fan covers can prevent damage to the fan itself. In an area that is unattended – or on the contrary is very busy – it is possible for fans to get damaged if they are left without any kind of protection. This can include certain items accidentally striking the fan when it is or is not operational.

If a fan were to become damaged, this could have negative consequences for the equipment that it is cooling and could result in costly replacements. Although fans are often made from sturdy materials, this is not always sufficient to mean that they will not break or become damaged to the point of less efficiency.

It is also important to note that the lack of a cover for your cooling fans for your electronics cabinet or other equipment can mean that damage is also more likely to occur to the electronics themselves. Although a fan can provide sufficient protection to a certain extent – especially if the fan is in operation – its efficiency as a barrier to the electronics is doubled by a fan cover.

Many fan covers take the form of aluminium spirals or plastic grids, and stop anything from striking the fan. This will therefore add an extra level of protection to all your electronics equipment too, safeguarding your expensive investments from damage.

In addition to providing protection for your equipment, another major advantage of covers for cooling fans for your electronics cabinet is that it can stop any accidents involving any other office equipment or workers.

Wires can easily become trapped in fans and therefore damaged, which can result in various severe consequences such as electrical fire or even electrocution. Covers will stop wires from being able to enter fans easily – or at all – therefore drastically reducing the risk. Indeed, installing these items can be a very reasonable precaution to take.

The covers will also stop people from injuring themselves too, as fans can all too easily hurt fingers that are touching the electronic equipment in question, Again, this can be a very reasonable step to take for any company or business owner looking to protect the health and safety of their staff.

Finally, another advantage of these fan covers is that they can be a very inexpensive insurance policy for the safety of both your electronic equipment and your staff. Many fans cover are available in bulk for very affordable prices, the cost of which far outweighs the cost of investing in new electronic equipment should it get damaged by accidents or by overheating.

These are just some of the reasons why covers for cooling fans for your electronics cabinet can be extremely beneficial. If you are considering investing in these items, it is strongly recommended to seek out a reputable supplier who will be able to advise you on the right product for your needs.

From covers for fan tray assemblies to large fan guards for large items of equipment, there is something available on the market to meet each and every need and requirement.

 

How To Renew Your Old Computer

What happens when you have an old, poor performing computer which sucks your time and create frustration every day? Here are 7 ways in which you can make the best of it.

1. Upgrade

Did you just install a software or game, and your computer is crawling while loading them?

Yes, it’s probably a very good to spend some money, and upgrade that tortoise. It’s definitely one of the best ways to speed up the old computer with minimum cost.

While it’s not always possible to do an upgrade, especially for laptops, you should still be able to upgrade its RAM and hard disk drive. RAM, also known as PC memory, can give you an extra boost in performance. And upgrading your hard disk to a solid state drive is another way to do it – not only will it boot up faster, your applications will perform better as well.

Just these two minor upgrades will keep your computer fresh and faster.

2. Steroids for CPU

Overclock it.

If you are adventurous enough, you can try overclocking your processor. It’s one of the best way to squeeze out more performance without breaking the bank.

3. Monthly Clean Up

Before you jump to conclusion, you may want to troubleshoot your computer and make sure the slowness is not caused by malware – viruses, worms, trojan horses spyware or adware.

Do a full computer scan with your antivirus software like AVG, Symantec or McAfee. Also, you can clean up temporary files, update windows, and defrag your hard disk.

If all else fails, don’t despair, you can try to reinstall your operating system from scratch.

4. Speed up Your Applications

Even when it sounds weird to be true, the truth is that some good programs are not optimized to run at their peak performance.

For example, if your web browser loads slowly, it could be due to its history size, installed extensions, or plugins.

5. The Older Versions

If your hardware doesn’t support the latest version of a particular application, like Photoshop CS5, use an older version instead. While running older software isn’t always the best idea, if it can still get the job done, you will get lesser frustration and time wastage.

6. Deal with Your External Components

Besides their superior performance, brand new computers offer the fresh feeling of owning it, like a brand new car. New mouse, keyboard and speakers. These are the items which you can replace easily, without breaking much of a sweat. Sometimes all you need to do is to just buy new external parts.

It will make your computer feel nicer – at least for a few months.

If you dislike your current mouse or keyboard so much, because of their worn out look or clicking issue, find better ones and replace them instead. (Using a mouse feels so much better than using your laptop’s trackpad.)

Hate your old speakers? Get a new headphone set – it’s up to you to decide what you want.

It’s true that those external parts won’t make your computer perform better, but it could save you from pulling your hair – while dealing with the frustration.

7. Light Weight Champion

If you really don’t want to part with your old computer, here’s another way to get around.

Install another operating system and then try them out.

And there are plenty of options out there. Great news is that some of them are free.

Here are some of the options available in the market today: Linux mint, Chrome OS, Jolicloud, Ubuntu. They should perform better even on older hardware.

If all else fails, seriously, you might have to bite the bullet and go out there to purchase a brand new computer. And if you decide to ditch your old computer, do make sure you recycle it properly.

How To Control of the Wire Harness

One of the challenges in testing wire harnesses is maintaining control of the testing process. Typically, the testing process is not fully automated. Operators connect an untested harness to the test fixture, and remove a tested unit from the test fixture. After a wire harness has been tested, it must be categorized as having passed or failed, and the operator must appropriately segregate the failed ones from the good ones. At times, an operator may fail to properly segregate a failed unit, causing significant problems downstream. Another potential problem occurs when an operator fails to wait until the test is completed and removes a partially tested unit from the test fixture. Selecting the wrong test program is also a potential problem.

Manufacturers who have several options available to them to control the testing process to minimize the possibility of intermingling defective units with good ones. These methods include:

• Activating a fixture clamp when the harness has passed all tests

• Printing a label only when the harness has passed all tests

• Sounding an alarm if the operator removes the harness before the test is completed

• Ensuring that the operator cannot alter the test program

The following is a brief explanation of each approach.

Activating a fixture clamp:

Many high-volume manufacturers use fixture clamps to prevent the operator from removing the wire harness before the tester has verified that all tests have passed. In this scenario, a defective harness can only be removed from the fixture through intervention of a supervisor or other authorized personnel. This results in improved quality control.

A fixture clamp is a device that provides a means of locking a wire harness connector in place while the wire harness is being tested. Most fixture clamp designs use a mechanical locking device that engages when a connector is inserted into a holder. When all tests have passed, an electric solenoid is used to release the connector at the end of the test. It is best to use fixture clamps that are closed and held by a mechanical latch and are opened by activation of an electrical solenoid. This ensures that the clamp will remain closed even if the power is disconnected.

It is important for the tester to be able to activate the solenoid via a control port. Here is a description of the operational scenario involving the use of a fixture clamp controlled by the tester:

• When the operator inserts the wire harness connector into the fixture block, the connector becomes mechanically locked in place.

• When the wire harness passes all tests, the tester activates the solenoid which releases the harness connector.

• If the wire harness is defective, and cannot be repaired, a supervisor or other authorized person can use a security override procedure that releases the fixture clamp, allowing the defective wire harness to be removed from the fixture.

Printing a Label:

Some wire harness testers can be programmed to interface to a label printer, causing a product label to be printed when a wire harness passes all tests. This is a superior method to using pre-printed labels. Using the tester to print a label when a wire harness passes all tests ensures that only good products receive labels. This assurance does not exist when using pre-printed labels. Using the tester to print labels also allows for dynamic data to be part of the label information, such as the current date and time, operator ID, and tester ID. When only good wire harnesses get labels, it simplifies the process of segregating good product from bad.

Sounding an Alarm:

Some wire harness testers may be programmed to enter into an alarm mode when a wire harness is removed from the test fixture before the tester has completed testing. While in the alarm mode, the tester would do the following:

• Stop testing

• Sound an audible alarm

• Display a message indicating early removal of the harness

• Require activation of a security override by a supervisor or other authorized personnel to de-activate the alarm

Once testing has begun, if the wire harness is removed before testing is completed the tester enters the alarm mode. The alarm mode aborts the test, sounds a continuous alarm, and displays a message indicating that the wire harness was removed before testing was completed. This behavior continues until an authorized person activates a security override procedure. It is important that the alarm mode cannot be cleared by cycling power on the tester.

Ensuring that the operator cannot alter the test program

To prevent problems associated with running the wrong test program, the tester must have the capability to lockout unauthorized personnel from selecting the test program. This ensures that once the proper test program has been selected, the operator cannot alter the selection.

Using one or more of these approaches can enable harness manufacturers to improve control of the quality of their products. It is important to use a tester that can support these capabilities.

 

The Benefit Buy Type 3 USB Cable

Many of the latest items of tech come ready to accept the USB type C cable as standard. It first started to appear in 2015 on a few new releases such as the Apple MacBook. It is now becoming more readily available and is appreciated for plenty of reasons, including its ability to operate faster when transferring data or charging smart phones or laptops. Here are three of the most appealing features of this USB cable:

Reversible connector

The USB type C cable is designed to be reversible, so it is much easier to plug-in to the laptop or other devices. It does not matter which way round or which end of the connector is plugged-in; this cable is still able to fully function as intended. A great benefit of this is the ability to use these cables on the widest range of devices in the market. All the latest operating systems (Chrome, Android, Windows, and OS X) are progressively changing over to this technology, which will soon mean the replacement of the USB type A and B cables.

It is much faster

The latest USB type C cable has the ability to operate at a very fast rate and therefore charge up external devices like smart phones or e-readers quickly. The fastest speed rates are achieved when the USB-C and USB 3.1 sockets are able to work in combination. A major reason for this is the ability to push up to 100W of power compared to the earlier standards that were limited to about 10W. A further benefit of the improved speed is the ability to complete file transfers from an external hard drive more quickly.

Greater versatility

The USB type C cable is extremely versatile and practical in many different situations. There is no need to use different plug and cable sizes for device like the laptop, smart phone or printer. Plus, it has the ability to take on several roles and complete multiple jobs at once. For instance, it has the ability to transfer data and charge a device at the same time. Other practical uses include the ability to hook up a laptop to an external screen.

A great plus of this connector having multiple functions is less need for multiple sockets on the laptop, which makes it possible to continue to build to lightweight and slim devices.

Finally, a further improvement on the older USB cables is the ability to include smart technology that helps to detect the intended use, and determines whether the cable is being used for video, power, or transfer data.

 

Tips Before Buying a Laptop or Desktop Computer

From the beginning to now, computers have always been a part of our life. People use them for different purposes in their day to day life. In today’s busy life, it is almost impossible for us to pass a day without a computer as they are involved with almost every single task.

Particularly, there are two types of computers. One is a desktop which means the normal, usual computers and the other one is laptops which are actually portable computers. Though the demands for laptops are growing day by day, but the need of desktop computers will always be there. Laptop computers won’t be able to replace desktops completely as desktops are more comfortable to use and they are reliable for powerful works.

Things to Consider

If you are thinking of purchasing a desktop computer or a laptop, then there some things you need to decide first. In other words, you need to take the decision according to your needs.
