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.
