The 2TB version is retailing for S$239, the 3TB version for S$289 and the 4TB version for S$399. In comparison the normal WD My Book 4TB retails for S$309.
I bought the Victorinox Swiss Army Slim 2.0 USB Flash Drive (32GB) when I visited the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets because I got nothing else to buy from there because I am not that into branded stuff.
It costs US$19.99 and after a 8.25% tax, it cost US$22 (S$28) which is pretty cheap, considering Amazon is selling for US$38.99.
Last week on the 17th October 2013, Western Digital launches the new My Passport Slim. It is the first thin drives to offer up to 2 TB capacity, a metal enclosure, and 256-bit hardware-based encryption.

WD Red hard drives are designed and extensively tested for compatibility under 24×7 operating environment and for the demanding system requirements of home and small office NAS.
It is available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB in size, it comes preloaded with WD SmartWare Pro backup software with Dropbox integration, hardware encryption and password protection to safeguard against unauthorized drive acces and it comes with a carrying pouch.
Launched on the 19th April 2013, the SanDisk Cruzer Orbit USB Flash Drive, features a 360-degree swivel cover and weighs only 4g. The ring hole allows you to attach to your key chain easily!
The only downside is that it supports only USB 2.0 in order to keep the price low. I would totally get the 32GB one and attached it to my key chain/pouch.
In my first part review of the Synology DiskStation DS413j, I talked about the Unboxing and Setup, in the second part review, I talked about the Performance, Backup & CloudStation and for this last review, I will talk about the multimedia features of the DS413j and that includes Video Station, Audio Station and Photo Station as well as their mobile apps, DS Video, DS Audio and DS Photo+ respectively.
There are a lot of features in the Video/Audio/Photo Station, and hence for this review, I will focus on my personal use case; I want to access/stream my music/video/photos stored in my Synology NAS wherever I am on my iPhone or Android.
