AmazonBasics has been around since 2009, but in the last couple of years, the product line has dramatically expanded. Today, it’s the best-selling private label brand on Amazon.
The AmazonBasics range covers everything from car washing equipment to kitchen appliances, but we’re only interested in the tech listings.
Which AmazonBasics tech products are worth buying? Which will save you money? Here are our top picks.
We’ll start with the AmazonBasics USB hub. Given most laptops only come with three or four USB ports, yet so many pieces of equipment now rely on USB for connectivity and power, it’s often handy to own a portable USB hub.
You will find a few different monitor stands in the AmazonBasics range, but we like this sleek and stylish metal one.
The simple design lets you raise your computer’s screen to a more comfortable viewing height. Doing so is great for ergonomics; it will relieve the strain on your neck muscles and improve your overall posture.
The stand has a height of 4.25 inches and can hold a weight of 40 pounds. Once again, it is only available in black.
If you don’t fancy the price of a “revolutionary” Apple Pencil, you could try spending less than a tenth of that and picking up an AmazonBasics stylus instead. It will work with any capacitive touchscreen device, including your tablet and phone.
The stylus itself comes with three tips (5mm, 6mm, and 7mm) and is made of aluminum. It is 4.7 inches long. And no, it doesn’t have an ill-thought-out charging method like the Apple Pencil.
This long, slim keyboard features comfortably spaced keys and one-touch access to frequently used functions.
Slimmer than most, this attractive, shiny black keyboard is modern and stylish. The well-spaced, low-profile keys allow quick and accurate movement, as well as making it easier to clean than most standard keyboards. Keys are quiet, quick, and responsive.
At your fingertips
Frequently used functions are just one touch away. Access volume controls, mute, calculator, music, My Computer, video controls, and more. Full-number keypad makes basic calculations a breeze.
