Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review
· ·

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter which retails for S$110 in Singapore can be mistaken for Microsoft’s version of Google Chromecast. In fact, both of them are quite different. Despite their differences, I don’t think their prices should vary that much. So I am not too sure why Microsoft would priced the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter at US$59.95 when the Google Chromecast is only retailing for US$35.

Microsoft Wireless Display will work with Windows devices and Android devices but not iOS devices, whereas Google Chromecast will work with Android devices and iOS devices but not Windows devices.

Many people come to know YotaPhone 2 as the phone with two screens. It is the world’s third phone with two screens as far as I know. The first is YotaPhone 1 which didn’t make it to Singapore and the second is NEC Medias W N-05e which is also not available in Singapore.

The YotaPhone 2 is retailing in Singapore for S$1,048 and you can buy it online via YotaPhone.com or Expansys. Note that the price S$979 on these two websites are before the 7% GST.

Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router Review

The Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router was launched in Singapore on the 6th February 2015 and the recommended retail price of it is S$399. It is only available at Challenger stores for now.

Linksys EA9200 is the new flagship router after the Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router and personally I think the EA9200 is the true successor to the Linksys WRT1900AC Router which was launched last May.

The Dell UltraSharp U3415W 34″ Curved Monitor has been available in Singapore since mid-December 2014 (I didn’t realised that) for S$1,499.

I personally think that the price is pretty reasonable since Dell’s high-end monitors are always about that range. In fact the U3415W is the cheapest of the high end Dell monitors. The Dell UltraSharp UP2715K 27″ Ultra HD 5K Monitor cost S$2,699 and the next in line is the Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q 32″ Monitor which cost S$2,259 and followed by the Dell UltraSharp U3014 30″ Monitor which will set you back S$1,749.

The Linksys E8350 AC2400 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router was available from 7th November 2014 at a recommended retail price of S$399 exclusively at Challenger and their online store. This is the second router to be priced at S$399 after the Linksys WRT1900AC Router.

Personally, I think Linksys should stop pricing their router so high because at that price point, no one in the right mind will get a Linksys. Gone are those days that Linksys is a top consumer brand for router. Their features just pale in comparison with the Asus RT-AC87U which is also priced at S$399.
