Home Office Setup

After few iterations I arrived at a set-up which works well for me.

Table

I wanted something affordable with adjustable height. This Husky Workbench does the job for me. Solid wood top is 48” x 24”. You have to crank it to raise it from 29” to 42”. This is fun - it makes weird noises.

Chair

Aeron is awesome but bulky. I found Setu does the same at a fraction of the price. It is discontinued but widely available on a second-hand market for around $200 in the SF Bay Area.

Monitor

Tried few. Ended up with 38” curved 1600p display, LG 38WN75C-B. Lovely!

Soundbar

You gotta hear it, right? This is a decent soundbar.

Headset

If you also need to talk, you’d better use headset. I am pretty happy with Jabra Evolve 65 Wireless

Thunderbolt Hub

I use Amazon Basics hub. It does the job. Realtek 8153 USB-to-Ethernet chip stopped working though. I wish it were 2.5 Gbps Ethernet but it is not.
