Apple iMac M1 Review

This review is part of techloto’s working-from-home series, where we’ve covered the best mouse, ideal microphones, and other tools to make working from home more comfortable. Today, we’re looking at the Apple iMac M1 to see if it’s the perfect work-from-home companion.


The first thing you’ll notice about the iMac M1 is its design. Apple has come a long way from the 2006 Apple HD display: a massive 30-inch screen that took up too much space and weighed a ton. This iMac is light and almost paper-thin, making it a perfect fit for any desk. Its design would appeal to students looking for a computer to put in their dorm room or anyone with limited space at home. We appreciate Apple adding a splash of colour to their design, which is not strongly saturated, giving tones that can fit into any space. The variety of colours allows users to choose the colour they prefer.


When it comes to handling applications, the iMac M1 excels. It’s impressive how smoothly it runs Teams and Zoom, even in long meetings with many participants. The fan is virtually silent, and the M1 chip allows the applications to function without issues. If you’re someone who has long meetings and video calls, this is the perfect computer for you, and you’ll see the value of the M1 chip.


Another impressive aspect is the camera. The iMac M1 camera is equipped with Facetime technology, and it’s a game-changer. The camera resolution is not the most important thing, but how it handles contrast sets it apart. After using a Canon camera as a webcam, the Facetime camera on the iMac handles contrast much better.

Keyboard and Mouse

The keyboard and mouse are also excellent. The keyboard is comfortable to type on, and the mouse is smooth and easy to use. These are essential components for a work-from-home setup, and the iMac M1 delivers in this area.


The available connections are also impressive. It has a Thunderbolt port, an SDXC card slot, and a headphone jack, among others. These connections allow for seamless integration with other devices, making transferring files and using accessories easier.

Screen Size

A challenging aspect of the iMac M1 is the screen size. If you’re someone who edits videos, audio, or designs, the screen size probably won’t be big enough. A larger screen is usually more productive for creative workflow.


The iMac M1 is an excellent work-from-home companion. Its design, performance, camera, keyboard and mouse, and available connections make it a great choice for anyone who needs a computer to work from home. Although the screen size may not be ideal for everyone, it is still an excellent choice for most people. The Apple iMac M1 is the perfect blend of functionality and design, and we’d highly recommend it.

FiFine USB Microphone K678 Review

FIFINE USB Microphone K678 Review

In this review, I’ll cover the setup, build quality, sound quality, and some of the applications where you could use this microphone.


The setup of the FIFINE USB Microphone K678 is effortless and straightforward. Whether you’re using a Mac or PC, it’s a true plug-and-play experience. There are no drivers to install, and there’s no additional software required. Simply connect the microphone to your computer via USB, and you’re ready to go.

Build Quality

The first thing you’ll notice when unbox the FIFINE USB Microphone K678 is the high-quality packaging. It’s clear that the company takes great care in producing and delivering its products. The microphone is well-made, with a sturdy, metallic body and a professional black finish. The rubber feet on the bottom of the microphone prevent it from scratching your desk or other surfaces and help soften the sound of typing.


The FIFINE USB Microphone K678 is designed for self-monitoring, with a one-click mute button at the front of the microphone. It also has knobs for controlling the microphone and headphone levels, allowing you to connect your earphones to the microphone for easy monitoring. Additionally, there’s space at the bottom of the microphone for attaching a mount, a USB port for direct connection to your computer, and a 3.5mm headphone output.

Sound Quality

To test the sound quality of the FIFINE USB Microphone K678, I compared it to a $400 condenser microphone. The results were impressive, with the USB microphone delivering a clear and crisp sound comparable to the more expensive condenser microphone.

Real-Life Test

I also tested the FIFINE USB Microphone K678 in a real-life setting, using it for a three-hour Zoom call. After the call, the microphone was still cool to the touch, which is a testament to its quality and durability.


In conclusion, the FIFINE USB Microphone K678 is an excellent choice for premium sound quality in a compact and stylish package. It’s perfect for office meetings or other applications where you want to monitor your output, and it’s small enough not to take up too much space on your desk. Whether you’re a gamer, streamer, or just someone who wants to improve their audio quality, the Fi Fine USB Microphone K678 is definitely worth considering.

Unboxing and Setting up the Polar Vantage V2

Unboxing and Setting up the Polar Vantage V2

I’ve been eagerly waiting to get my hands on the Polar Vantage V2 since we heard the rumours on the Polar Reddit page. So, let’s dive into it!

Packaging and Presentation

The Polar Vantage V2 comes in a type of packaging that we are now familiar with when it comes to high-end Polar watches. However, the presentation of it is a bit different this time. Polar has made it a bit simpler, making it easier to get the watch out of the box and start using it. All you need to do is pull apart the box and lift the top part, and there you will see your brand-new Polar Vantage V2.

First Impressions

As soon as you take out the Polar Vantage V2, you will first notice that it is lighter than its predecessors, the Polar Vantage and the Polar Grit X. Despite its lighter weight, the watch still has the high-quality build that we are used to with Polar watches.

Charging the Watch

Underneath the watch, you will see a new Polar cable for charging your watch. I recommend connecting it and charging it for about an hour to avoid any heartache. An interesting thing I noticed is that, unlike other Polar watches, this one doesn’t switch on automatically as soon as it gets some power from the charger. You have to press and hold the bottom left button to power it on.

Setting up the Watch

Even if you’re new to Polar, and especially if you already have a Polar account, the best way to get your watch up and running is to connect it straight to your computer. Don’t bother trying to connect it to your phone at first. Download the Polar app and sync all your data to ensure that all your sport profiles are on the watch. If you already have a Polar watch, you will want to remove it from your profile to avoid any confusion.

What’s New in the Polar Vantage V2

At a glance, you will see that the Polar Vantage V2 has the same menus you’re used to but with a few added options in the settings section. The watch now has weather information, like the Polar Grit X, and Polar is adding more value to their newer watches. The activity section is the same, with the same options for tracking your daily activity.


In conclusion, the Polar Vantage V2 is a well-designed and feature-packed watch that builds upon its predecessors. The unboxing and setup process is straightforward, and the added options in the settings section add value to the watch. Whether you’re new to Polar or already have a Polar watch, the Polar Vantage V2 is definitely worth considering.
