Herman Miller Aeron Chair

· · · Furniture

My brother ordered for me the Herman Miller Aeron Chair from Unwanted Imports. Unwanted Imports has been conducting mass orders for Herman Miller chairs in Hardware Zone forums since 2011.

There are so many configurations and sizes to the Herman Miller Aeron Chair that makes it super confusing. I am glad my brother took care of it and I can just +1 to his order.

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.

Sony E 30mm F3.5 Macro Lens (SEL30M35)

· · · Camera

I always wanted to get the Sony E 30mm F3.5 Macro Lens (SEL30M35) ever since I bought the Sony NEX-3N from Amazon last year to do some closed-up product shots.

The SEL30M35 is retailing for S$399 in Singapore but I learned that it is much cheaper in Japan.

WeMo Switch + Motion

The WeMo Switch + Motion is retailing at Funan’s Challenger for S$109 (member’s price is S$89) while the WeMo Switch is retailing for S$79 (member’s price is S$71.10).

For a member’s price difference of S$18, I can get the additional motion sensor, and hence I chose the WeMo Switch + Motion instead of just the WeMo Switch.

iMacwear M7 – Android Watch

GearBest sent me an iMacwear M7 for me to try. The iMacwear M7 is retailing for US$112.63 (S$155) on GearBest’s website excluding shipping.

The iMacwear M7 is not an Android Wear device but rather an Android Watch itself because it runs on a full Android 4.4 (KitKat).

OnePlus 2 Available in Singapore in Q4 2015 for S$538

· · · Mobile Phone

The much anticipated OnePlus 2 which was announced last Tuesday, 28th July 2015, will be coming to Singapore in Q4 2015 and the local retail price is S$538 for the 64GB variant.

I played with the OnePlus 2 last Friday, 31st July 2015, at the OnePlus 2 media event in Singapore. I love the build of the OnePlus 2, it feels solid and have a premium touch to it. The phone comes with the Sandstone Black back cover which I totally love. If you don’t like it, you can swap it with four other back covers: Bamboo, Rosewood, Black Apricot, Kevlar, which are sold separately.
