Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD

Amazon was having a 48% off their Samsung 850 EVO 250GB last month (I bought it on the 11th November 2015). The listed price is US$149.99 (S$213) and the discounted price is US$74.99 (S$106).

Another good news is that it qualifies for the free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping to Singapore if your total qualifying purchases are more than US$125.

Nubee NUB8380 Temperature Gun

I bought the Nubee Temperature Gun from Amazon for US$13.59 (S$20) together with the Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure. It also doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The Nubee temperature gun is a non-contact digital laser infrared thermometer that lets you obtain a temperature reading of a surface such as stoves, ovens, food and fish tanks.

Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure

I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.

Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.

StarCraft 2 – Legacy of the Void – Collector’s Edition

Two years after Heart Of The Swarm (Zerg) and five years after Wings Of Liberty (Terran), the StarCraft 2 trilogy will come to a close with Legacy of the Void (Protoss).

StarCraft 2 – Legacy of the Void was officially launched on 10th November 2015. I have collected both Heart Of The Swarm and Wings Of Liberty Collector’s Edition and of course I can’t miss out on this last one.

If you are thinking of getting a USB Type-C cable from Amazon, be sure to read Benson Leung’s review on Amazon first.

Benson works in Google and his team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. He has worked on two Pixel products that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1).

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Bought the Amazon Fire TV Stick for US$39 (S$54) just to try it out since I already decided on buying the Amazon Echo (next post) and my kitchen’s television needs a media casting device.

Why not another Chromecast? This is because I wanted to try a new gadget and I think Chromecast is due for a refresh soon as it has been almost 2 years since it was launched.

Nexus Player

Amazon was having a 30% discount on the Nexus Player two weeks ago. I contemplated for a few days because I am not sure if I need it but in the end I still decided to get it because I am a sucker for new gadgets.

I got it on Amazon for US$67.68 (S$93) back on 29th June 2015. Since it does not ship to Singapore directly, I shipped it to my favourite freight forwarder, HopShopGo, and got them to ship to me once they received the parcel. I paid US$19.64 (S$27) for the shipping from HopSHopGo to Singapore via DHL Express.
