UNI-T Mini Sound Lever Meter (UT353BT)

Bought the UNI-T Mini Sound Lever Meter (UT353BT) from Lazada for S$31. Shipping within Singapore is additional S$1.49.

I wanted a dedicated device to measure the sound level of some of my gadgets, like my new computer and Razer Core X Chroma.

Belkin Economy Series 4-Socket Surge Protector

My computer is not switched on 24/7. Last Saturday, when I turn on my new computer, it causes my Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) to trip. This is the first time I encountered a trip in MCB. Typically, it is the Circuit Breaker inside my house that will be tripped.

Sadly, after that happened, I can no longer switch on my computer. I suspect my Power Supply Unit (PSU) is fried.

Arctic P12 PWM PST Fan

For casing, I am looking at Lian Li TU150 in black. It is a mini-ITX chassis that supports four 120mm fans — two at the bottom, one in front, and one at the back.

They say Noctua has the best casing fans and hence it is expensive. It cost about US$29.90 (S$42) each.

Victorinox Super Tinker Red

I ran out of gadgets to buy during Lazada 9.9 sale, and I have a S$26.40 coupon to use because of my Lazada LiveUp refund. Decided to get a refund for my LiveUp membership as Lazada tweak it to make it worst after 1st July 2019.

I used the coupon to buy the Victorinox Super Tinker Red which is going on sale for S$39.75 on Lazada during their 9.9 sale. The usual price is S$53. Delivery within Singapore is additional S$1.49.

iRobot Roomba Series Side Brush

The iRobot Roomba 980 comes with one spare side brush. I have to change to the spare side brush after one of the brush head of the original broke.

After changing to the spare side brush and scheduling it to clean just once, all the three brush heads broke. It is probably due to hardening of the rubber of the brush head that makes it so brittle.

Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB

Thanks to Melvin for the heads up. I managed to get quite a good deal for the Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING) on Lazada.

I got it for S$499 which is a massive discount from the usual price of S$1,179. At first, I was wondering whether it is a fake since the discount seems absurd.
