As technology moves forward we find that the means of connectivity are often changing very rapidly. There are times when you will find that you cannot connect one device to another simply because the ports do not match up. We recently ran into something like this when we needed to attack our Asus EEE Slate EP121 to a projector. Although we had brought our mini-HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI adapter, the projector did not support either. Fortunately for situations like this we are seeing more companies push out adapters that will allow you to work with older monitors especially as we seeing many newer devices that remove the VGA port and DVI port as well! So let’s take a Accell’s UltraVideo VGA to HDMI adapter and see if it can help bring your use your new hardware even with older displays. .

Although we did build in surge protection and a good number of isolated outlets into the lab we always like to have more protection and more available plugs to play with. After wading through a number of flat and boring power strips with basic surge protection we started looking for something different. That is when we stumbled across a company called Accell and their PowerSquid Surge Protector.
