Computer Accessories to Improve Productivity

Whether you are working in an office, or from home in your home office, you meet your work each day through your workspace. Working from home gives you absolute control over your “new” workplace. Upgrading and personalizing your workstation increases productivity. So for this computer accessories are important

This article analyzes the best values and best overall options among computer mice, keyboards, monitors, webcams, and headsets. Having worked remotely for five-plus years, I’ve often found that the best way to improve productivity is to upgrade these essential accessories.

Computer Mouse

The Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse is an ergonomic mouse. It is one of the important computer accessories. That just means that it is functional and comfortable. This is also a mouse for those already working from home looking to upgrade their way past joint pain. It has the scroll wheel and left/right buttons all computer mice have, plus a couple programmable buttons.
