SanDisk Extreme 128GB MicroSDXC Card

Bought the SanDisk Extreme 128GB A2 MicroSDXC Card from iRoyal Shop on Lazada for S$33.50 during the 11/11 sale. It seems that the price remains the same after 11/11, it is still retailing for S$33.50.

After a week, I realized my order is not progressing. I contacted iRoyal on Lazada Chat. They got back to me pretty quickly. They told me shipping took a little longer as it went out of stock after I bought it.

Dash microSD & Dash SD Card Reader

I backed the Dash microSD and SD Card Reader on Kickstarter on 16th November 2015. The project was funded on 1st December 2015 after raising a total of US$11,492 out of their initial goal of US$10,000 from 717 backers.

I chose the US$22 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another US$3 (despite it stating US$2). So in total, I paid US$25 (S$36).

SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive

The SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive is a pocket-sized media drive that comes with either a 32GB or 64GB built-in flash drive and a SD Card slot. It is extremely portable measuring only 65mm x 65mm x 13.5mm and weighing only 77g. The 32GB retails for S$139 while the 64GB retails for S$209.

The Media Drive is encased in aluminum and that gives it a solid build!

Toshiba FlashAir Review

Toshiba FlashAir is the “no frills” version you can get out of Flucard Pro and Eye-Fi Pro.

It is being distributed by Trek 2000 (makers of Thumbdrive) in Singapore and is retailing for S$100+. Since Trek don’t enforce a Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) model to the dealers, I can’t give you an official pricing. Right now only 1 capacity is available which is the 8GB.

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.

Sitex 2008

Went to Sitex 2008 yesterday with Julian, Kelvin and Weiquan. Surprising it was not very crowded. Now I am starting to dislike exhibitions at Sitex because it is so far! This year Sitex is quite a disappointment, Ban Leong did not take part and hence no Razer products. After walking Hall 5 and 6 of Singapore Expo, it makes me feel that this exhibition is selling TV instead of computer! The prices for some of the stuffs are not that cheap at all. I got my D-Link DNS-323 at S$199 from Comex 2008 back in August 2008 but now they are selling at S$209? Prices should drop and not increase!

I think the most value for money are the memory cards, thumbdrives and portable hardisk. Kelvin and I got the SanDisk Ultra II (Class 4) 8GB SDHC for just S$33. Julian got the SanDisk Cruzer Micro Skin 4GB Thumbdrive for just S$12! I bought the exact same thumbdrive for S$19.90 at Giant Hypermarket a few months back!
