D-Link DIR-890L AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Cloud Router Review

The D-Link DIR-890L AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Cloud Router was released in Singapore back in February 2015 and is retailing for S$399 making it the same price as the Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri Band Smart Wi-Fi Router.

I wonder whats up with router names these days, is like each company is trying to add in more keywords to the official name of the router.

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.

VyprVPN

Previously, I was using StrongVPN on their StrongVPN Special PPTP which I paid US$55/year (S$75/year).

After my one year contract with them ended, I didn’t renew it because I felt that their server switch quota is kinda limiting though I have never hit the limit before. Server switch basically allows you to switch to different VPN servers.

Mophie Apple Watch Dock

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is retailing for S$79 at EpiCentre at ION Orchard, iStudio at Paragon, Nubox at Raffles City, and Nubox at Tampines Mall. However, this product is currently out of stock in Singapore as a result of overwhelming demand. So I suggest you call up those stores to reserve one if you are interested in getting it. I hope eventually it will be available online at Apple Online Store (Singapore).

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is the best Apple Watch stand/dock available in Singapore. I have the Spigen Apple Watch Stand S330 and played with the Griffin WatchStand, and I still prefer the Mophie Apple Watch Dock.

Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop

Bought the Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop strap for S$218 from Apple Online Store (Singapore) because the 42mm Milanese Loop is sold out at all authorised Apple Resellers.

Placed my order last Thursday, 2nd July 2015 and I received it this Tuesday, 7th July 2015, despite it saying it ships within 5-7 business days.
