Devices, gadgets, dongles, etc.

We often receive questions about what kinds of gadgets and devices to purchase for various uses. While the ITS Service Desk does not offer a supply of these items for the campus, we are happy to offer suggestions based on our own experience to help you make a purchase. To that end, these are some lists that we maintain at Amazon which include links to products that we recommend. Feel free to follow these links and purchase the items using your own personal or department account.

If you'd like to talk with us about a specific recommendation for your need, let us know. And if you have an idea for a new product that would be helpful to add to our lists, please share that as well.
