Belkin is about to put a 200Mb/s powerline Ethernet adaptor in the market. The Powerline AV+ uses an integrated hub to share the connection between the three devices plugged in. These three ports however are not gigabit ports, they are 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet ports.
Wireless streamers capable of handling high-definition video aren’t new, exactly, but they’re often proprietary systems intended by a manufacturer solely for their own displays. Belkin are bucking the trend, therefore, with their upcoming FlyWire wireless HD interface. Capable of transmitting full 1080p/24, it replaces an HDMI cable while still allowing HDCP devices to play properly.
Ladies and gentleman, we have finally arrived. A manufacturer finally took notice of the increasing number of devices that charge via USB and has been kind enough to finally start integrating that technology into surge protectors/power strips.
There are a total of 8 outlets on this surge protector. The two that aren’t included in the outlined box are the only two “always-on” outlets on the strip.
Basically this is a somewhat rigid bag that doesn’t close, but it holds your laptop, accessories, and power cords and keeps them out of the way without looking obscene. It would go perfect next to your bed, recliner, wherever you are usually laptoping.
So you bought yourself that new fancy mouse that Razer released yesterday, that occupies your lightening quick reflexes on your right hand, now you need something for your left hand. Well, Belkin has upgraded their n52 SpeedPad by letting Razer in on the action to work their performance enhancing magic and now we have the n52te for your left hand.
It seems like this is the year for wireless HD streaming, and Belkin is throwing their hat in the ring with everyone else. One thing this device has going for it that not very many other wireless HD streamers I’ve seen have is it look fashionable, instead of like something you’d want to hid out of sight.
This device is rather amazing, it allows you to record your podcasts and interviews on the fly, directly to your iPod. Then it automatically syncs, and can even auto upload, that content the next time you sync your iPod.
These days its not exactly easy to find device that utilize the dock connector that work with both the iPhone and the iPod Touch as well as other iPods. Finding a decent FM transmitter is even harder, but I think Belkin has done just that.
There are a few main things that people are likely to focus on when buying anything: does it take up a lot space, how versatile is it and how accessible is it. If your product falls within a decent range on any of these fronts people are more likely to pick it up without even worrying about the cost. In my opinion the clamp-on surge protector from Belkin fills all these shoes nicely.
Common Surge protector allows only one main power switch for all the outlets. Belkin’s engineers tweaked the drawing board and came out with an energy saver surge protector. The new Conserve Surge Protector offers 8 outlets in which 6 of them can be turned off via a remote so you are able to shut off miscellaneous items on the ‘remoted’ outlets and keep the main 2 outlets on. The Popular Mechanics likes it so much, they picked the Belkins as Popular Mechanics’ Editor’s Choice Award at the CES 2008. The device is neither an automated nor a programmable outlets; it’s still rely on user to trigger the switcher, except with a remote this time. If you are a lazy person, it is not going to save your electronic bill.
