One of the reasons Synology introduces their own lineup of SSD and HDD is for compatibility. The SSD and HDD are optimized for use with their own Synology NAS with customized firmware. Also, when things go wrong, the users don’t need to contact different vendors. They can bring it all back to Synology.
When I think of NAS, there are always three brands that came to my mind. Synology, QNAP, and ASUSTOR. All three brands are from Taiwan. I reviewed Synology NAS many times and did my first QNAP NAS review in December.
To complete the trilogy, I have with me the Asustor Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) which is equivalent to the Synology DS920+ and QNAP TS-453D. All three models are 4-bay NAS, powered by Intel Celeron J4125 and comes with 4GB of DDR4 ram. Intel J4125 is a 4-core 2.0 GHz (burstable to 2.7 GHz) processor.
Ugreen 20W USB-C PD Charger is an alternative to the Apple 20W USB-C Power Adapter. It retails for S$15.99 on Lazada and shipping to Singapore is S$1.49 if you have not collected the free shipping voucher from Lazada.
This is a Power Delivery 3 (PD 3) / QuickCharge (QC 4) charger, and hence it can deliver 9V/2.22A as required by Apple’s MagSafe Charger.
Sudio Nio is the latest earbuds from Sudio and also their first product launch in 2021. It is available in four colors, black, white, green, and sand.
Sudio retails for S$119 but you can get it for S$101.15 after applying the coupon code LESTER15 which entitles you to a 15% discount on S$119. Worldwide shipping is free via DHL, and you will get it within 5 to 7 days.
My second NAS 10 years ago was a decision between Synology NAS and QNAP NAS. In the end, I chose Synology. I can’t remember the reason why. Throughout all these years, I have been sticking with Synology NAS.
