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.

I took my old Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to my office and hence I needed another one for my house. Went to VivoCity’s Infinite and bought it for S$38.

Surprisingly, I could not find this adapter in VivoCity’s Challenger. They only sell the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter.

Bought the McKAL Airplane Audio Adapter from the newly opened Challenger at Bugis Junction for S$6.90 (Member’s Price: S$5.90). Now I can finally use my own earphones/headphones for the airplane’s in-flight entertainment!

I can also watch my movies for about 10-15 minutes longer while the air stewardess goes around collecting the loaned headphones from the passengers!

I was one of the early backer of Flybridge. I backed the project on 29th December 2012 and the project got funded on 1st February 2013 after raising US$19,365 (the goal was US$15,000).

As I was the early backer, I am entitled to get the Flybridge for just US$10 and hence I bought two and shipping is an additional US$10. In total I paid US$30 (S$37.20). Flybridge shipped on 28th February 2013 and I received it on 27th March 2013.

Elevation Dock with Lightning Adapter

When I bought the Elevation Dock, it was shipped with iPhone 30-pin connector, because the Kickstarter project was planned before the new Apple Lightning Connector was announced. Elevation Lab has been hard at work since then to manufacture the Lightning adapter for the Elevation Dock.

Finally on the 8th November 2012, the Lightning adapter is production ready! The Lightning adapter cost US$15 (S$18.30) and shipping cost US$7.22 (S$8.80), paid a total of US$22.22 (S$27.10) for it. This bring the total cost of the Elevation Dock to S$148. At that price, it is very expensive for a dock, but the quality is awesome and it is Made in the US product. The dock is future proof as the adapter is exchangeable as long as Elevation Lab is able to produce it.

Bought the Apple Lightning to Micro USB Adapter from Apple Online Store (Singapore) for S$28. Initially it was only available in Europe as in Europe if you are selling mobile phones, it has to come with Micro USB connectivity. But last Saturday, in a surprise move by Apple, they decided to make it available for all.

Previously, the Apple 30-pin Connector to Micro USB Adapter is only available in Europe and still is.
