Western Digital My Passport 2012 (1TB)

Li Xiang got the Western Digital My Passport (1TB) from Challenger for S$189 (Member’s Price: S$159).

This is the new 2012 edition and WD has dropped the name “Essential SE” and hence the name is just Western Digital My Passport. Also, USB 3.0 is now the standard feature.

Kingston HyperX SSD 120GB

Got my very first SSD which is the Kingston HyperX SSD 120GB from Newegg.com thanks to Benjamin’s cousin who is in the US.

The usual price of the SSD (on 3rd February 2012) on Newegg.com is US$205 (S$259), however there is mail-in rebate of US$50 (SDG$63). After the mail-in rebate, it cost only US$155 (S$195).

D-Link DNS-320

Bought the D-Link DNS-320 (S$109) and 2x Western Digital 3.5″ SATA Caviar Black 1TB hard drive (S$115 each) at Comex 2011 last weekend.

I still bought back a D-Link NAS after my bad experience with D-Link DNS-323 because the DNS-320 is meant for my mom’s office and D-Link service center is just located behind my mom’s office in case anything happens.

Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB

Got the Eye-Fi Pro X2 8 GB from Amazon for US$91.49 together with my Cocoon Grid-It. Shipping cost US$21.46 in total.

The Eye-Fi is not officially sold in Singapore so you have to either get it from resellers who bought it overseas or you get it directly from Amazon. The Eye-Fi Pro X2 8 GB cost about S$160 when you get it from resellers in Singapore, it is more expensive, but you do not need to wait 1 to 2 weeks for it as normally they got ready stock. Amazon is cheaper but you have to wait 2 weeks (in my case) for it.

Western Digital My Passport Essential SE (USB 3.0)

Hooted the My Passport Essential SE (1TB) (USB 3.0) from SITEX 2010 for S$189.90 (usual price is S$209.90). This is my first USB 3.0 device despite not having any computers that support USB 3.0. It is all about future proofing!

Since this portal harddrive supports USB 3.0, the connector on the harddrive itself is a USB 3.0 MicroUSB Port (which looks weird, see picture below) instead of the usual USB 2.0 MiniUSB port. But it is backward compatible meaning your USB 2.0 MicroUSB (NOT miniUSB) still can fit into the port.
