The S2240L and S2340L monitors are virtually borderless, while the S2440L and S2740L monitors are almost frameless, with flushed edge-to-edge glass on a glossy screen.
Western Digital is entering into the router market with the launch of 3 routers and 2 routers with built-in storage. These routers are priced pretty competitively!
I will be reviewing the My Net N900 which is retailing for S$239.
It utilizes the new 802.11ac wireless technology (which is still under development) that allows you to have gigabit wireless speed. Most AC routers in the market right now is capable of a theoretical maximum speed of 1.3Gbps (3 x 433.3Mbps streams with 80MHz channels).
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.
Aftershock is a Singapore-based company that makes gaming laptop, so unless you are into gaming, you probably will not heard of them.
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.
The Sony MW1 Smart Wireless Headset Pro is retailing for S$168 at Xperia concept stores and Sony stores. The Sony Smart Wireless Headset pro is a Bluetooth stereo headset that can stream music from your phone via Bluetooth’s Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and can function as a standalone MP3 Player/FM radio.
My Razer Lycosa has been with me for 4 years and the rubber coating of the keyboard are worn off and hence the print on some keys are gone, what’s left is just the blue light emitting from it. It is time for a new keyboard and the Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard came at the right time to pair-up nicely with my Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse.
The Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard has been a leading gaming product in the market for more than 3 years and is currently retailing for S$279.
Before I start this review on the HP Envy 4, I would like to highlight that there are 2 models to the HP Envy 4 and they are quite different. The model I am reviewing is the HP Envy 4 (1035TX) which is an Ultrabook, while the entry level HP Envy 4 (1026TU) is what HP call them the Sleekbook. The HP Envy 4 Ultrabook (1035TX) is retailing for S$1,299 while the HP Envy 4 Sleekbook (1026TU) is retailing for S$1,099.
The price different of S$200, gets you 8GB of RAM, a dedicated graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 7670M) and 32GB SLC mSATA SSD. It is that 32GB SLC mSATA SSD together with Intel Smart Response & Rapid Start Technology that differentiate the laptop from a Sleebook to an Ultrabook.
The Buffalo AirStation HighPower WCR-HP-G300 is a budget router that is retailing only for S$59. Since it is targeted at lower end consumers, the specifications are just entry level.
The router is only able to support LAN/WAN speeds of 10/100Mbps and 2.4GHz band for Wireless-N speed up to 300Mbps. On a side note, the router is extremely light.
