Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router Review

Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router Review
· ·

The Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router was available from 7th November 2014 at a recommended retail price of S$399 exclusively at Challenger and their online store. This is the second router to be priced at S$399 after the Linksys WRT1900AC Router.

Personally, I think Linksys should stop pricing their router so high because at that price point, no one in the right mind will get a Linksys. Gone are those days that Linksys is a top consumer brand for router. Their features just pale in comparison with the Asus RT-AC87U which is also priced at S$399.

Not many people heard of the brand TYLT before and that includes me. But I recognised the bold colors used in their nicely designed product packaging and only then I realised, the brand name is TYLT.

I still could not figured out what TYLT stands for and it is not written in their about page.

The Creative Sound Blaster Roar carry-bag is retailing for S$19 and is only available exclusive at Creative Stores. I got mine for free as it comes along with the Creative Sound Blaster Roar that I bought at Sitex 2014.

I am not very impressed with the quality of the bag. Because it is a fabric mesh (net), there are a lot of loose threads that came off when I opened the packaging. It also feels very cheaply made. If it comes along as a free gift, then it is fine. Don’t bother paying S$19 for it. I rather you save the money and get a better alternative bag.

After reviewing the X-mini CLEAR and asking my fellow tech blogger, Renhao, who is an audiophile, we came to conclusion that X-mini CLEAR isn’t worth S$299.

So I decided to get another portable speaker for my dad. Renhao recommended the Creative Sound Blaster Roar and besides him, I also read many online reviews saying the Roar is good and value for money.

I always wanted to get the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block but just no impulse to buy it. The Coop Idea was co-founded by two friends who grew up ​in New Zealand who currently resides in Hong Kong.

The recommended retail price (RRP) of the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block is S$99, however MobyShop is selling it for S$79.90. That is the cheapest I could find till I went to Sitex 2014 and saw it being sold at S$79 at Nubox booth.
