Airtame Review

Airtame is a wireless device that plugs into the HDMI port of any monitors, televisions, projectors and streams your content to the screen from a computer or mobile device. Think of it as a wireless HDMI device.

Think of it as a business version of Chromecast. The reason why I said “business version” is because the price is pretty expensive for the average consumers as it is not targetted at them.

Apple TV 4K

Bought the Apple TV 4K from iStudio at Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 when I was heading to South Korea. In Singapore, the Apple TV 4K retails for S$268 for the 32GB and S$298 for the 64GB.

Since I bought it within the airport’s departure area, I don’t have to pay the extra 7% GST, and hence the Apple TV 4K cost me S$250.47 for the 32GB.

Google Chromecast Ultra

I have the first Chromecast back in 2013 and the second Chromecast back in 2015.

Chromecast Ultra is my third Chromecast. It retails for US$69 (S$99). It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopgo.

Bought the Samsung Series 5 55″ SUHD Smart LED TV (UA55JS7200) from Best Denki at VivoCity on 20th February 2016. Best Denki is having their Fortune Sale for Chinese New Year. This television is for my new house that will be ready in end April 2016.

When the television was launched in April 2015, the price was S$3,699 but now it dropped to S$2,949. For the fortune sale, there is a 8% discount (capped at S$200) and hence the final price of the television is S$2,749. It comes with a free Samsung 320W 2.1 Ch Soundbar (J551) worth S$549 and I paid extra S$50 for the wall mount.

Apple TV (4th Generation)

Pre-ordered the Apple TV (4th Generation) last Monday, 26th October 2015, and it was shipped to me on the official release date which was 30th October 2015 via DHL Express.

In Singapore, the Apple TV (4th Generation) is retailing for S$248 for the 32GB variant and S$318 for the 64GB variant. I bought the 32GB variant because I haven’t figured out if I needed so much space on a media player.

Google Chromecast (2015)

The original Chromecast was released on 24th July 2013 and have 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 it’s store URL to buy the Chromecast.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Bought the Amazon Fire TV Stick for US$39 (S$54) just to try it out since I already decided on buying the Amazon Echo (next post) and my kitchen’s television needs a media casting device.

Why not another Chromecast? This is because I wanted to try a new gadget and I think Chromecast is due for a refresh soon as it has been almost 2 years since it was launched.
