Arlo Go 2 was officially released in Singapore back in February 2023 and retails for S$399. As the name suggests, it is the successor to Arlo Go.
Here is a table showing the differences between both cameras. The main differences would be the resolution upgrade to 1080p and additional wi-fi connectivity on top of 4G LTE. The price was cut by almost half, from S$799 to S$399.
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.
I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Xiaomi Mi Selfie Stick Tripod, and I found the Yunteng Selfie Stick Tripod Stand on Lazada that cost only half the price. I got it at S$11.54.
Unlike the Xiaomi Mi Selfie Stick Tripod, the mobile phone holder of the Yunteng Selfie Stick Tripod Stand doesn’t rotate. So if you want to switch between portrait and landscape, you have to unscrew the holder, rotate it, and screw it back again.
I am still a novice when it comes to photography. So for all my products shots, they are being taken by my Canon PowerShot S95 point and shoot camera. The S95 has been with me for more than 11 years. Both the battery and the LCD screen started to show signs of aging. So I decided to retire it.
I then switch to my Sony NEX-3N which I bought seven years ago in 2014. However, the moment I turned it on after being left untouched for a few years (I stored it with the battery removed), the LCD screen showed multiple red lines. I mean, it is still usable, but it isn’t very pleasant to use it. I might also retire it eventually.
I received the Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) on 7th September 2021, and on 9th September 2021, the first problem occurred. There is no ring light around the Nest Hello. I restart the Nest Hello by switching on and off the transformer plug, and it works great after that.
The usual retail price is US$229 (S$308), and during the Labour Day sale, it dropped by US$50 to US$179 (S$241). Direct shipping to Singapore is an additional US$21.21 (S$29) via DHL. DHL shipping is swift, I placed an order on 2nd September 2021, and I got it 5 days later on 7th September 2021.
Bought the Logitech C920 Pro HD Webcam during Lazada’s Online Tech Show for S$108.05. The usual retail price is S$149. During the flash sale, it was discounted to S$119. After deducting Lazada’s voucher of S$5 and the shop’s voucher of 5% off (S$5.95), I ended up with S$108.05.
