So I am happy to report that my work from home setup is almost complete to a decent standard and I thought it might be useful to cover off what I have – how much it cost, possible alternatives and give some reviews as we go, so as they say lets jump right in.
Note:- people have their own opinions on equipment and the following is my findings.
I bought a Logitech Brio to start off with, excellent quality for the price – was about £125 I think.
I then upgraded to a Sony A6000 Mirrorless Digital camera and the quality is a lot sharper and more professional looking – £550.
So I have every make and model of microphone I think there is, I have a few its safe to say.
I’d recommend the Blue Yet if you want to spend around £100 – decent microphone.
I then upgraded this to the Shure SM7B which is £330 and also bought a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen which cost £110 – this is a significant step up in quality if you need to record audio, pricey but worth it.
To make the background look a little niceer than a blank wall I bought some lights from Govee – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Govee-Wireless-Controlled-Lighting-Assistant/dp/B07QCMCVD7 which cost £24, the products from Govee are superb.
Other than the above I have a Dell 49″ UltraSharp U4919DW monitor which has been my favourtite purchase out of everything I have bought.
I also bought the Elgato Mic Arm LP – https://www.elgato.com/en/wave-mic-arm-lp but put my DSLR camera on it which works very nicely – the arm costs £90
I also bought a standing desk from Ikea – https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/idasen-desk-sit-stand-black-dark-grey-s39280943/ which cost £550.
So as you can see I spent a lot of my hard earned cash on these things, but I like nice things, and these are all top quality products.
