Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Hard Storage Case

Recently, I have dismantled my Western Digital Elements Desktop 1TB and Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB to remove the hard drives inside as USB2.0 is way too slow for file transfer.

Once I have the internal hard drives, I can use them with my Vantec NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter to get better transfer speeds.

Synology DiskStation DS1621+ Review

I decided to upgrade my slightly more than three years old 4-bay Synology DiskStation DS918+ to the 6-bay Synology DiskStation DS1621+.

Back in 2017, DS918+ was the flagship Synology 4-bay NAS and that was replaced with DS920+ in 2020. Also in 2020, the 5-bay DS1520+ got updated.

I was looking for a carrying case for my AirPods Max because the Smart Case that comes with it offers close to no protection on the headphones.

I went with the most ratings and cheapest OEM Apple AirPods Max Case that I can find on Shopee and found this: [SHIWAKI1] Protective Hard Shell EVA Grey Storage Travel Case Bag Cover for AirPods Max.

Linksys Velop MX4200 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router

Linksys Velop MX4200 is Linksys second wi-fi 6 Mesh Router. The first being the Linksys Velop MX5300 which I reviewed last year.

One might think that based on the model numbers MX4200 and MX5300, the Velop MX4200 might be a more inferior model. But it is actually not true, and in the real world, you might not notice the difference.

Apple AirPods Max

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.

OEM Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) Replacement Tip

I dropped my Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) with the tip landing on the floor first. The tip broke off and left a portion of it in the Apple Pencil.

I watch a couple of YouTube videos on how to remove the stuck portion, and I think this video is the best. It uses a pincer to grip on the stuck portion and slowly unscrew it out.

If you need any type of cable for your gadgets, Ugreen will probably have them.

I was looking for a USB Extension Cable to extend out from the USB charging port of my Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5). This will allow Li Xiang to use the Xiaomi USB Fan to circulate the wind around her plants.
