My birthday present came early. My brother got me a very generous birthday present, the Apple AirPods Max. It retails for S$849 and is available in five colors, Space Grey, Silver, Green, Blue, and Pink.
My brother got me the Blue flagship color. He ordered on 19th February 2021, and the delivery estimate was 6 to 7 weeks, which makes it around 7th to 13th April 2021. He didn’t expect the shipment to be just one week as I received it on 26th February 2021. Maybe someone canceled their order, and they have stock.
I got to know iShopChangi People’s Choice Deals through their Facebook post. They have advertised the AirPods Pro to be S$295. The recommended retail price (RRP) of AirPods Pro is S$379 on Apple.com/sg.
I camped on 30th June, and when midnight arrives, nothing. I replied to their Facebook post and went to bed. They responded the next day, mentioning the sale is at noon sharp. Again, noon arrives, nothing.
The Razer Core X Chroma comes with a 0.5m Thunderbolt 3 cable. There is nothing wrong with the length, but the build quality of the cable is questionable.
I tested it with three MacBook Pros and all three experience frequent disconnections from the eGPU. It can be as frequent as once every 30 minutes. It is extremely irritating. Upon Googling, it seems to be a common problem.
