Sharkoon PC Jump Start review

Is your computer located under your desk and are you tired of crawling under your desk to switch on your PC? And do you hate having to search for audio ports and USB ports in the dark? Then you might be interested in the PC Jump Start from Sharkoon.

This product is a cable remote control to switch on your PC, and to sweeten the deal it also has two USB 2.0 ports along with headphone and microphone connectors.

The Sharkoon PC Jump Start is available in two colors: black and silver. Lets take a look at the features first before taking a closer look at the device:
  • Cable remote control for PCs to be placed on top of a desk
  • Illuminated power button for conveniently switching on/off the PC
  • 2x USB 2.0 connector (type A)
  • 1x headphone and 1x microphone connector
  • Cable length: 2.5 m
  • Color: black, silver

  • The model I'm taking a look at is the silver one, it shipped in the following box:

    Inside is the PC Jump Start device, it's pretty compact and has a long cable attached to it.

    Also included is a brief manual, two small pieces of adhesive Velcro, and a PCI slot bezel with a hole to route the cable through.

    The Sharkoon PC Jump Start is a compact remote, it fits in the palm of your hand and has a large round button in the middle to switch on your computer. The remote is pretty light, most of the exterior is plastic but about a fourth of it is made out of brushed aluminum - which is a nice touch

    The right side of the PC Jump Start has a pink microphone port and a green headphone port.

    And two USB 2.0 ports can be found on the left.

    It would be nice, especially as four of these five people come back to Kansas to campaign for re-election, to be able to get them to elaborate upon what their votes meant. ,

    Thanks for the review, I think you are underestimating how many people might use this at this reasonable price, just to save bending down, crawling under their desk to get to the button, i know i would!!
