Linksys Velop (Dual-Band) Review

One of the main concerns of the Linksys Velop (Tri-Band) wi-fi mesh system is the price. Linksys Velop (Tri-Band) retails their 1-pack for S$349, 2-pack for S$599 and 3-pack for S$749.

With the introduction of the Linksys Velop (Dual-Band) on 28th July 2018, Linksys manage to solve the pricing problem. It is friendly to the wallet because is about two times cheaper. Linksys Velop (Dual-Band) retails their 1-pack for S$139, 2-pack for S$269 and 3-pack for S$399.

Linksys EA8100 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router Review

Three years ago, Linksys launched their first MU-MIMO router with the Linksys EA8500 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router.

Fast forward to today, Linksys launched their first DFS router with the Linksys EA8100 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router. DFS stands for Dynamic Frequency Selection. More on that in the later part of the review as that is the only selling point of this router.

eero Beacon

eero Beacon usual price is US$149 (S$199). But on 27th December 2017, they had a sale where it was discounted to US$99 (S$132) with the discount code BEACON99.

Shipping within the US is free, and hence I sent it to my favorite fright forwarder, HopShopGo, and get them to ship to Singapore for me.

Synology DiskStation DS418play

My Synology DiskStation DS415play is starting to show it’s age when I tried streaming videos using the Plex app on my Apple TV 4K to my television.

Very often, it will show the error, “Your connection to the server is not fast enough to stream this video. Check your Network.“.
