Office supplies are obviously the mainstay of any stationery cupboard. And we haven’t even thought about what lurks in the pedestal drawers under each desk when we say that. But pens and pencils aren’t the only items that keep a good business operation well oiled. Computer accessories are the IT equivalent of highlighters and staple removers… you don’t think about them until the actual moment you need them. So, we thought it would be a good idea to remind you of three great computer accessories worth buying in advance.
1. Flash Drives
Flash drives are fabulous bits of IT kit that enable you to store and/or transfer data from one device to another without a network or internet connection. But that’s not the only reason they’re handy to have in your reserve of spare computer accessories. They’re also:
Easy to carry – Put simply, they’re pocket sized.
Durable – They have no moving parts, so usually last longer than a hard disk. They also don’t tend to break if you drop them!
Good re memory capacity – They may be tiny, but they really can store A LOT.
Quick and easy to use – You just plug them into a USB drive. Simples.
Able to offer good data transfer speeds – Transferring files to and from a flash drive can often be far quicker than other storage devices.
Pretty universally compatible – USB connections are now on a wide range of devices. You can be pretty sure you’ll be able to use your flash drive when you reach your destination.
2. Lock Ports
If you want to protect some of your hardware, then a lock port is a good solution. Perhaps you’re going to an exhibition. Perhaps your office block has started to have more visitors. Or perhaps you sometimes just want to have a visible theft deterrent in place. Whatever, there are many good reasons why storing a handful of lock ports in your computer accessories stash will give you peace of mind:
Researching and buying a replacement laptop isn’t forced on you – Let’s face it, your laptop will only ever get pinched just when you need it the most.
Your data is much safer – Regardless of the hassle of replacing a laptop, the threat of some of your data being available to a thief is worrying.
It will help ensure compliance with GDPR – An extension of the point above, the use of a lock port is evidence that you are taking steps to protect any individuals’ personal data held on your laptop.
3. Wireless Mice
As with many wireless computer accessories, often wireless mice operate via Bluetooth. However, it’s also possible to get a version that operates via a simple USB receiver. Obviously, it’s your choice which route you take, but whatever you choose you can take heart that there are some fabulous benefits to having a wireless mouse or two stored with your other computer accessories:
They’re easier to pack – Let’s face it, with a wireless mouse there’s no irritating cable to get knotted up with your power cable!
There’s less clutter to annoy the eye – For some, cables create clutter and that can be irritating subliminally. A wireless mouse just helps to remove a bit of clutter from your desk.
A Bluetooth mouse leaves a USB port free – A wireless mouse using Bluetooth will mean you have an extra USB port to use if necessary.
