Disclaimer: I am being seeded with the Dell XPS 12 for a 3 part review. For the first part, I will talk about the unboxing and design of the Dell XPS 12.

The Dell XPS 12 was announced back in 30th August 2012 at IFA 2012. Currently the base model is retailing for S$1,828. If you intend to get it from Dell Online Store, you might need to wait for 20 working days due to overwhelming demand.

Toshiba FlashAir Review

Toshiba FlashAir is the “no frills” version you can get out of Flucard Pro and Eye-Fi Pro.

It is being distributed by Trek 2000 (makers of Thumbdrive) in Singapore and is retailing for S$100+. Since Trek don’t enforce a Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) model to the dealers, I can’t give you an official pricing. Right now only 1 capacity is available which is the 8GB.

Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset Review + Giveaway

I am not really an audiophile, but I can hear the sound difference between headsets. I don’t own much headsets as I prefer earphones. The only headset I got is the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster which is retailing for S$298. The Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset on the other hand is retailing for S$249 which is slightly cheaper.

To me, the sound on the Logitech G930 beats the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset. The sound produced on the Logitech G930 is sharper, clearer and have better bass quality (which is important to me), while of course the Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset looks aesthetically nicer.
