HDFury 4K Arcana 18Gbps

HDFury 4K Arcana 18Gbps is a device that I have not heard of till I was Googling on how to get Dolby Atmos support for older televisions that don’t have eARC.

ARC stands for Audio Return Channel, while eARC stands for Enhanced Audio Return Channel. The main difference between ARC and eARC is the speed and bandwidth.

Ugreen HDMI 2.1 Cable

I have various HDMI cables from multiple gadgets, and I don’t even know what HDMI version they support. So I decided to standardize and future-proof all my HDMI cables at home to make them more uniform.

I opted for HDMI 2.1 because it supports all the latest standards, 8K@60 resolution, 48 Gbps bandwidth, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), etc.

Shure AONIC 40 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

Shure AONIC 40 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones is actually the first Shure product that I owned. As the number 40 in the product name suggests, AONIC 40 has a 40 mm dynamic driver which makes it in the same range as the Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones and Apple AirPod Max.

AONIC 40 is Shure’s mid-range wireless noise-cancelling headphones. They have another higher-end which is the AONIC 50.

My brother got me the CalDigit TS4 for my 38th birthday back in March 2022, but B&H Photo Video has it back-ordered till May 2022. I finally received it two days ago, on 27th May 2022.

Passport III – 65W Travel Adapter

I am a huge fan of Zendure Passport travel adapters, and they are a must bring for me for my overseas trips. I have the original Passport, Passport Pro, and Passport Go.

I only didn’t get the Passport II Pro as it was launched during the COVID-19 period and I am unsure when I will travel again.

Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera Review

There are four main lines of security cameras from Arlo. Arlo Ulta, Arlo Pro, Arlo Essential, and Arlo Go. Arlo Ulta supports 4K HDR video recording, while Arlo Pro supports 2K HDR video recording. Arlo Essential supports 1080p video recording, while Arlo Go supports 720p recording as it is meant to be used with a 4G plan.

Only Arlo Essential has two cameras in the line, Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera and Arlo Essential Indoor Camera. Both of which I have reviewed.

Roborock Q7 Max Review

Roborock Q7 Max is the first Roborock robot vacuum cleaner in the new Roborock Q series. The Roborock Q series is a mid-range robot vacuum cleaner series between the Roborock S series and the Roborock E series. If you have owned the Roborock S5 Max, you will be happy to know that the Roborock Q7 Max is the successor to the Roborock S5 Max.

Roborock Q7 Max retails for S$699 on Lazada. In some countries, the Roborock Q7 Max is also known as the Roborock T7 Max. So essentially Roborock Q7 max and Roborock T7 Max are the same.
