What to Consider when Purchasing Electronics?
- Office Supplies:
Research consumer reviews to decide which products are trustworthy, user friendly, and worth your money
Compare the price of the good with the potential use
New or refurbished?
Read all warranties
Consider placement and storage. Do you have enough space to fit whatever it is you’re purchasing?
- Car System:
What audio source do you use most often? Radio? MP3?
If you predominantly stream apps, which apps? And which receivers feature dashboard controls for said apps?
How loud would you like your system? Are there sound laws where you live?
How much room do you have in your car?
- Wearable Technology:
What are your uses for it and how often will you use it? Exercise? Tracking?
Do you need a computer or smartphone to operate the wearable technology? If so, what kind?
How often will the device need to be recharged and can the battery last as long as you’d need?
Style? Comfort? Or tech?
- Audio Speakers and Electronics:
How much are you willing to spend? Audio equipment gets expensive fast, so you need to know your budget.
What’s your primary use for it? For example, a DJ would never invest in the same headphones a jogger would. A movie theater set-up needs a theater surround sound-system and not quite the same sound system as music lovers.
How much room do you have for your audio setup and what is the layout of your room? Windows and walls will reverberate sound. Drapes and carpeting absorb sound. Maybe you want portable speakers?
- Cameras and Camcorders:
What will be the camera’s primary use?
Which do you prefer: Portability, Picture Quality, Or A Mix? The answer to this will quickly narrow your camera search.
How much are you willing to invest? Camera’s are expensive, especially when you factor in the prices of lenses.
What’s wrong with your current camera and what improvements would you make to it?
Desktop or laptop? If you plan on having a steady workstation, a desktop might be better. But if you need a computer on the go, then a laptop is clearly the superior choice.
Warranty: Having a computer covered with the right kind of hardware warranty is essential to any computer purchase--be it a laptop or desktop.
Understand the processor because it can mean the difference between a system that runs smoothly and one that gives you nightmares.
Pay attention to the RAM (Random Access Memory) because it can affect just how much multitasking you’re able to accomplish and how fast the computer will be. In this case, the more the merrier.
What kind of operating system do you prefer? Windows? Mac OS? Linux?
- Mobile Devices:
How portable should it be? Carry in your pocket? Or is it better in a briefcase or purse? Would you prefer a handheld device or a device for lounging? These are all important considerations for everything from the perfect smartphone to tablet.
Do you need extensive battery life? The bane of most mobile devices is the battery life--or lack thereof.
What will be your primary use? If you need a phone, do you plan on using it to connect with your email and computer? If so, a smartphone is the better option. But if you only need a phone for calling and texting, then a normal cell phone is a cheaper option. Concerning tablets, readers will prefer something like an e-reader, while professionals may prefer a tablet for connect with the office.
