BHTC Top Picks
One of the things we're asked often is what kind of hardware we recommend to our clients. For example, while you could purchase any wireless router, we do have our own recommendation for one if you haven't bought it yet. The same is true for hard drives, cabling, monitors, and so on.
DISCLAIMER: we recommend this equipment as far as computer specs and overall Amazon reviews, but cannot vouch for individual sellers on Amazon nor the case-by-case quality of the equipment since that is not under our control.
