The Klipsch Reference R6i On-Ear Headphones were launched in Singapore last month on the 20th September 2015 for S$199.
The original Chromecast was released on 24th July 2013 and has since sold over 20 million units. 2 years later, Google finally unveiled an updated Chromecast and announced it during a special event that was held on 29th September 2015.
You can call it Chromecast 2 or Chromecast (2015). I would prefer Chromecast (2015) since the product name is still called Chromecast and Google uses the slug “chromecast_2015” in its store URL to buy the Chromecast.
I love the concept of Logitech Harmony Home Control, but unfortunately, it is not available for sale in Singapore and you have to get it from Amazon.
I noticed that Amazon was having a Gold Box deal on the 8th September 2015 for the Logitech Harmony Home Control. It’s usual price is US$149.99 (S$215) but for the Gold Box deal, it is only US$99.99 (S$144) with free shipping to Singapore using AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping if your purchases are above US$125.
I was one of their super early bird backer. I pledged US$119 (S$168) for the LaMetric Time itself and shipping to Singapore is additional US$25 (S$36).
The Belkin Road Rockstar is available at all 34 outlets of Challenger and Lazada at a recommended retail price of S$79.
The Linksys Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router or Linksys EA8500 Router in short was released on 4th August 2015 exclusively at Challenger and is now available in most electronics stores. The recommended retail price of the Linksys EA8500 is S$399.
Despite having a model number of EA8500, it is not exactly a lower end model when compared to the Linksys EA9200 Router. The Linksys EA9200 is a AC3200 router and hence it is capable of speeds up to 3,200Mbps while the EA8500 is an AC2600 router capable of speeds up to 2,530Mbps. But let’s be honest here, even in the perfect case environment, we will not be able to get up to the theoretical speed.
Last year I backed the Tool Pen on Kickstarter and was pretty impressed with the quality of the Tool Pen and how the project was ran.
JBL Flip 3 Portable Speaker is a portable splashproof Bluetooth 4.1 Speaker that is retailing for S$179 in Singapore.
The JBL Flip 3 is pretty much an all-purpose speaker because it is made of durable and splashproof fabric material with rugged rubber.
OctoFire 96W/19.2A 8-Port USB 3.0 Hub/Charger was launched on Kickstarter early this year on 27th January 2015. After raising a total of US$115,414 out of their initial goal of US$20,000 from a total of 1,270 backers, it was funded on 26th February 2015.
I was one of their “Super Early Bird” backer and hence I paid US$59 (S$85) for it with an additional US$15 (S$21) for shipping to Singapore. In total, I paid US$74 (S$106) for it.
The Choetech 60W 6-Port Desktop USB Charger is retailing for US$29.99 (S$43). It is a 6-Port USB charger that includes two Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 ports.
