Using Synology Drive With Synology DiskStation DS220j

Synology DiskStation DS220j is an entry-level NAS from Synology targeting at users who wish to give Synology NAS a try or are new to the NAS world.

SanDisk Ultra 3D 2TB SSD

My secondary storage will be the SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND 2TB Internal SSD. I got it for US$209.99 (S$292) on Amazon. Shipping to Singapore is an additional US$4.71 (S$7).

Unlike the addlink S70 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD which uses NVMe connector to give you speed of up to 3,500 MB/s, this SanDisk Ultra 3D 2TB SSD is slightly slower as it uses SATA III. The advertised read speed is up to 560 MB/s and write speed is up to 530 MB/s.

addlink S70 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD

So I decided to build a new gaming PC. Benjamin helped me put together a list of computer parts to buy based on my budget as I have lost touch with it.

I am getting the RAM, SSD, Case Fans, and Case Fan Filter from Amazon, while the rest I might get from Dynacore next month.

SanDisk Extreme 128GB MicroSDXC Card

Bought the SanDisk Extreme 128GB A2 MicroSDXC Card from iRoyal Shop on Lazada for S$33.50 during the 11/11 sale. It seems that the price remains the same after 11/11, it is still retailing for S$33.50.

After a week, I realized my order is not progressing. I contacted iRoyal on Lazada Chat. They got back to me pretty quickly. They told me shipping took a little longer as it went out of stock after I bought it.
