The IT Nerd Back To School Gift Guide For 2019

Back to school is just around the corner and I have a short list of suggestions of a high tech nature that the student in your life would love. If you think that there’s something else that should be on the list, drop me a note and let me know.

Roku Streaming Stick + – $89.99

Powerful and portable, the Roku Streaming Stick gives the gift of entertainment on-the-go all in a powerful stick. With thousands of channels there will be something to watch for any student whether it’s Sports, Movies & TV shows or News. Choose your favorite program with the included point-anywhere remote, or just use the Roku app on your smartphone to control the action. Check out the review here.

Roku Express – $44.99

The new Roku Express is five times more powerful than its predecessor and offers easy HD streaming at an affordable price. A great gift for any student, the Express comes with a remote control that makes finding something to watch a snap. With over 150,000 movies and TV shows available (including tons of free content), you’ll be sure to find something that the student in your life likes. Check out the review here.

TCL 4K Ultra HD Smart LED Television, 65″ – $900

TCL’s 6-Series combines stunning 4K HDR picture performance and the award-winning Roku TV smart platform in a bold, brushed metal design for a superior TV experience. Dolby Vision delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. TCL’s Contrast Control Zone technology individually optimizes the image across up to 120 zones to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas. The 6-Series models’ iPQ Engine™ provides precise colour replication while HDR Pro Gamma significantly improves HDR performance in any setting. Check out the review of the 43″ version of this TV here.

Safe by HUB6– $299

Students need security when they are away at school. But home security systems charge ridiculous monthly fees for services that provide questionable protection. Safe by Hub6 uses the security system hardware you already have and frees you from long-term contracts or monthly fees. It redirects any alerts triggered by your system to your phone, friend, or HUB6’s Professional Monitoring when you need a back-up.

Deco M4 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System-($280-$350)

Eliminate weak Wi-Fi signal areas once and for all! The Deco M4 three-pack delivers Wi-Fi to an area of up to 4,000 square feet by forming a unified network. Devices automatically switch between the Deco pods as you move through your home for the fastest possible speeds. Lag-free connections for up to 100 devices and parental controls all controlled by the easy-to-use Deco app. I reviewed the Deco here.

MSI PS42 Laptop -($1,280-$1,592) Slim. Elegant. Prestige.

For the first time, MSi is offering laptops aimed at non-gamers. The PS42 is light weighing only 1.19 kg and ultra-thin at 15.9 mm. Powered by an 8th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 processor the PS 42 is fast and competitively priced with many of the performance features you’d expect from MSi. Crafted with hair-brushed aluminum and combined with white keyboard illumination, the PS42 is made portable and durable wherever you go! Here’s the review of the PS42.
