Why Sit-Stand Desks are better than Standing Desks – get yours on Birthday Sale!

Standing desks have been trending for a few years now, as a response to the dangers of prolonged sitting. That said, anyone who has tried a standing desk, eventually they come to the realization that it hurts a little bit to be on their feet all day long. In the same way sitting puts stress on the body, as it turns out, standing unnaturally for hours on end does the same.

 

Enter in sit-stand desks. These are height adjustable desks you can move from a seated position to standing in seconds, ensuring that when you want to sit, you can sit, and when you want to stand, you can stand. This keeps the body engaged without getting you stressed and fatigued from all that standing.

 

Even more good news, sit-stand desks are not that expensive compared to standing desks. One of Canada’s top suppliers of sit-stand ergonomic desks is PrimeCables. There are literally dozens of models to choose from, ranging in price from as low as $189.99 and above. Also, June just happens to be PrimeCables’ big birthday month. There’ll be exclusive deals launched on select ergonomic office accessories and desks. Enjoy fast, free shipping on all orders above $49.

 

Standing desks, for as healthy as some claim they are, don’t lead to anyone burning more calories than if they were if they were sitting. Studies have also shown they can slow cognitive function and increase back pain. All in all, you want a mix of sitting and standing. You’ll keep away the fatigue, protect your back, and you can remedy all aches and pains you might normally have to suffer through working an office job.

 

Some of PrimeCables’ June 2019 birthday sale on sit-stand desks include our sit-standing height adjustable riser ADR for monitors 35” wide for $189.99, the sit-standing desk riser ADR for monitor 31.5” wide for $148.99, the electric height adjustable sit-stand desk converter for $199.99, the height adjustable ergonomic desk riser with 50 lbs. capacity for $255.99, and the portable height adjustable sit-stand desk converter for $119.99.

 

Find the model that best suits your lifestyle. The healthiest way to work is one where stress is minimized on the body and where you feel comfortable. For these reasons, a sit-standing desk is far more advantageous than any standing desk.

 

Come and celebrate the June 2019 birthday sale with PrimeCables. For when you need to work eight hours a day or longer at a desk, you’ll be glad to have one of our ergonomic height adjustable desks ready to personalize for your needs.

Should you use Ethernet Cable instead of Wi-Fi for Gaming – read here

For gamers, some prefer using an Ethernet connection instead of Wi-Fi arguing it provides faster, more efficient gaming. They’re not wrong. Wireless speeds are not as reliable as a wired connection. An Ethernet connection provides a reliable, stable connection direct from your console to the router. You’re taking out variables like distance and obstructions, common in wireless, and instead replacing it with a connection and download speed you know is not going to provide any issue.

Setting up an Ethernet network cable can be a bit of a hassle and in some situations, it’s not such a fancy thing to look at. Even so, a wired connection will accomplish two things – first, you’re getting stability and second, a faster speed than wireless. Although some modern wireless routers can give speeds high enough for gaming, if there’s bandwidth problems or instability involved, you don’t want latency or issues with the Internet connection making the experience difficult. Ethernet’s the strongest connection you can have.

For argument’s sake, a wireless connection is prone to use from other users and devices on the network. It has to share that wireless signal among all of them. The more people on the network, the higher the possibility of latency happening. Through wired Ethernet, so many variables are immediately are gone. For gamers who make the switch, they almost never go back to wireless. Normally, a gamer can expect to see faster download speed, better ping numbers, and more reliable connections overall.

For the best Ethernet cable in Canada, shop PrimeCables. Choose from Cat7 network cable, Cat6a network cable, and Cat5e cable. There is no better place to get bulk cable than with PrimeCables, as we offer fast, free shipping on all orders above $49 as well. No matter if you’re needing short-length, medium-length, or long-length cable, we’ve got it.

PrimeCables also has several other gaming-friendly options you might enjoy, like speaker and monitor mounts, HDMI cables, USB cables, various audio and video cable and device adapters, computer monitors, headphones, surge protectors, and more.

Ethernet cable is not just perfect for gaming but can be used for a home entertainment system and/or if you’re hosting a server for a website or web-based application. Anything where you know you need a high quality Internet connection that’s not going to fail you and that will consistently deliver the highest speeds or bandwidth possible, a wired Ethernet connection is needed. Shop yours today at PrimeCables.

See the Secrets of How Charging Cables work and more – buy them today!

So your smartphone needs a charge. What do you do – you take a cable and you plug it in. Almost any device you want to charge, there’s a cable for that. But, how do they work – well, that’s what we hope to shine a light on here.

 

Every USB cable has at least two wires inside, no matter if it’s being used to power a device, charge, and/or for data transfer. All electric circuits depend on loops and in order for a loop to occur within a cable, two wires are needed. The key idea to remember is electric current which is the movement of an electric charge inside of a metal wire. A flow of charges is created by the electric field housed in the wire. If there’s no closed loop, the charge quickly will build on a wire’s surface, creating a zero electric field with no current. Alternatively, with a closed loop, mobile electrons reach back towards where they’re coming from and prevent charges from building up.

 

In most USB cables, there may be between four and five wires. The average Apple lightning USB cable has 5 wires. They typically are color-coded, such as in red, green, white, and black. The colors correspond to a code. ‘Red’ is a positive wire with 5 volts of DC power; ‘black’ is usually the ground wire in almost all electronic devices including USB cables; ‘white’ is the positive wire; and ‘green’ is the negative wire, used for data in tandem with white. A USB connector’s engineered so that the power wires are closer to the tip than the data pins, giving your device power before transferring data.

To complete an electrical circuit when you want to charge your phone, one end of the cable must be plugged into your phone and the other end into a charger. Back and forth, electrons then flow to the charger along the surface of a copper wire. For data transfer, data wires take on the opposite polarity on the same frequency meaning a mirror image is created. The white wire pushes data to its destination while the green wire is working in the opposite direction. This eliminates noise and allows a clear connection to be maintained.

 

As a USB Type-C cable is bent and beat up over time, eventually one of the wire strands break which is what causes a cable to eventually fail. If any one of the four wires snaps, the result is a malfunctioning cable which cannot complete its circuit.

Is it Time to Upgrade your Network Cable to Cat6 and Future-Proof – we say yes!

Upgrading to Cat6a cables from Cat5 or Cat6 cable is unquestionably the best choice you can make if you’re struggling with your bandwidth and Internet speeds. As demand for faster efficiency with our Internet continues to peak, the old Cat standards no longer work.

 

New Ethernet installations done today should be done with at least Cat6 Ethernet cable, although Cat6a is even better. This is the most advanced Category Ethernet cable there is, perfect for today’s speed and bandwidth needs. Cat5 was a mid-to-late-1990s favourite while Cat5e rose in popularity in the 2000s. Cat6 has been in use since the late 2000s and in the last five years, Cat6a has received much attention for its advancements.

 

When it comes to future-proofing, what we mean is by installing a high quality advanced cable today, you’re preventing yourself from having to upgrade in the future. And, make no mistake, there will come a time when you need to upgrade. As the Internet continues to grow and use more bandwidth, you need the cable to handle it. Ethernet network cables like Cat6a are your best bet.

 

Something which a lot of homeowners and commercial businesses forget about Cat6a networking cable is that in order to achieve the bandwidth, network, and speed promised, all cabling and accessories must meet the minimum standard set out by the IEEE. If any single component’s low quality or older, you may not see the bandwidth improvements expected.

 

Can you still get by with Cat5 cable – not really. The maximum frequency it has is 100 MHz and speeds up to 100 Mbps. Although it may work for a local area network in some commercial environments, Cat5 cable is too slow for most applications and within a decade, will be completely gone. Cat5e cable is an enhanced version of Cat5e cable however and is designed to handle speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. Cat5e cable generally works for most applications, although when possible, switching to Cat6 cable is the better option.

 

If it’s a new Ethernet installation, Cat6 cable is absolutely a must. You’ll receive bandwidth allowance up to 250 MHZ and speeds up to 10 Gbps. Cat6a Ethernet cable has additional advantages over Cat6 and this includes higher bandwidth up to 500 MHZ, 10-gigabit speeds over 330 feet of cable which is double the length of what its cousin Cat6 allows.
