Home Office Setup

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


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.


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.


Tried few. Ended up with a 38” UltraWide QHD+ curved display, LG 38WN75C-B. Lovely!

Attribute Value
Panel IPS
Color Space 99% sRGB
Resolution 3840 x 1600, QHD+
Ratio 21:9


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


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.
