Victorinox Swiss Army Slim USB 2.0 Flash Drive (32GB)

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.

I am a huge fan of WD Red Hard Drives and I am using 4 of them in my Synology DiskStation DS413j and they have not been giving me any problems so far.

SanDisk Cruzer Orbit USB Flash Drive

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.

Synology DiskStation DS413j Review – Video, Audio & Photo Station

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.
