Synology DiskStation DS413j Review – Unboxing + Setup

I am being seeded the Synology DiskStation DS413j alongside with 3x WD Red 1TB hard disk drives for a 3 part review. For the first part, I will talk about the unboxing and setting up of the DS413j.

Since I only have 3x WD Red 1TB and the DS413j is a 4-bay NAS, I went to Sim Lim Square to get another WD Red 1TB so as not to let 1 of the bay goes to waste. I didn’t realized that WD Red 1TB is a pretty old HDD and most of the stores carry 2TB onwards. Luckily Bizgram still has some WD Red 1TB left. So I bought it for S$120.

Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset Review + Giveaway

I am not really an audiophile, but I can hear the sound difference between headsets. I don’t own much headsets as I prefer earphones. The only headset I got is the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster which is retailing for S$298. The Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset on the other hand is retailing for S$249 which is slightly cheaper.

To me, the sound on the Logitech G930 beats the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset. The sound produced on the Logitech G930 is sharper, clearer and have better bass quality (which is important to me), while of course the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset looks aesthetically nicer.
