Linksys WRT1900AC Router Review

The Linksys WRT1900AC box got to be the biggest box for a router that I have received. When I opened the box, everything is held in place with foam instead of cardboard and there is sponge sticked to the top of the box to protect the router. I have not seen such premium packaging before for a router.

The Linksys WRT1900AC will be retailing for S$399 which makes it the most expensive consumer router that I come across. It is even more expensive than the Asus RT-AC68U. It will be exclusively available at all Challenger outlets from 22nd May 2014 (yesterday) to 22nd June 2014. After that, it will be available at all other leading IT stores in Singapore from 23 June 2014 onwards.

Sony Digital Voice Recorder ICD-UX543F

· · · Gadget

Sony recently opened its largest flagship store in Southeast Asia at 313@Somerset #02-28 to 37 (directly opposite Starbucks). It occupies 9,902 square feet (920sqm) of floor area and its opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.

As a Sony member, we are given S$50 to spend at that store and surprisingly when I went there, there is nothing interesting for me to buy. Instead it is my mom who used the voucher and bought the Sony Digital Voice Recorder – ICD-UX543F for S$189 so that she can record meeting minutes.
