Synology NAS Swag

I rather have a simplified and hardened router and manage the networking stuff behind the router. Synology is listed below too

Sorry don’t understand. What OS and what interface is totally meaningless. So what feature does it have which the Eero is missing?

» Posted By sdchew On Sunday, 28th October 2018 @ 15:08

Still using my Eero and think it’s doing pretty well. What features of the Synology router is making you consider it?

Xiaomi Mijia Wiha 24 in 1 Screwdriver Kit

I like the ‘hopefully’ part.

Do you have the iFixit Tool box? I have to say this screwdriver looks like but doesn’t appear very practical. Not sure how much leverage you can get from such a smooth handle

Nest Cam IQ Indoor

How’s the latency when accessing live view?

Nomad Universal Cable (0.3m)

Since it goes from Micro-USB to USB-C, I’m wondering if it supports USB-C PD? Technically that goes against the spec if I’m not mistaken

Synology DiskStation DS918+ Review

Finally got mine last month! So far it has been great!

Sounds good. Been looking at this NAS for a while to replace my old ReadyNAS Ultra 6.

Assuming you buy their official expansion array, can all the disk be part of the same array or internal and external must be different arrays?

» Posted By sdchew On Tuesday, 12th December 2017 @ 13:53

Do you know if the RAID array is expandable across the eSATA port? Or do the disk attached via eSATA have to be in a different RAID array from the internal?

Apple AirPods

Woot! I managed to get a pair!

Anyway, I have decided if I chance upon it in a shop, I’ll just grab it. Else, I’ll wait a while.

My biggest regret of 2016; I saw it when it appeared online. Press Buy and delivery date was 20th Dec. Took a shower then decided to cancel order. Next morning woke up and saw 4 weeks delivery time. Sigh…

eero Wi-Fi System Review

Alternatively try calling singtel see if they are willing to let you use your own router. Then connect Eero to the ONT

» Posted By sdchew On Tuesday, 30th January 2018 @ 08:35

No issues whatsoever. The adapters support 110-240V

» Posted By sdchew On Monday, 22nd May 2017 @ 15:13

Yeah. One of the reasons why I bought the Eero was their active participation on Reddit. Its rare to find a company so actively involved in getting feedback and looking to improve their products in open discussion.

By the way, what software are you using for the heat maps?

» Posted By sdchew On Thursday, 5th January 2017 @ 10:41

Ha! Looks like you finally bit the bullet and bought the Eero! Still using mine. So far so good. Had some minor issues with my MacBook Pro occasionally dropping off but it appears fixed with the latest 2.x firmware. Eero support is fantastic too

TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless N Nano Router

Well, if you want any feedback about it, drop me a message

You should try an Eero to get rid of wifi dead spots. I got one recently and it’s great. Not to mention it supports 802.11r for fast roaming between access points. I bought the 3 pack but currently only have deployed 2 of the 3 access points. Probably good enough for most folks living in HDB flats…

Apple Magic Mouse 2

I find it charges really fast. 5 minutes is enough for the rest of the day use for me. So I take a coffee break when it’s flat

Is that what you’re experiencing too?

Herman Miller Aeron Chair

Great buy Lester… been using on since 2006 and love it! Price was much lower back then too… I bought mine from the local agent Xtra and their support has been excellent

D-Link DSP-W215 WiFi Smart Plug

Actually I got the insight from Amazon UK. US version is 110V only

» Posted By sdchew On Wednesday, 5th August 2015 @ 09:58

Actually besides the WOL pack idea, they could also add a watchdog and/or power cycle feature. For example, if used to plug a router, if the device looses connection to the internet, it could cycle power. Likewise, if you initiate a power cycle, it should power back on. Right now, if you connect it to a router, it will switch off and you can never turn it on again.

Dual Wifi would be nice too!

Does it have that annoying start up delay which the Wemo has due to device discovery? I have the Wemo Insight which does quite a lot of the same things as this but far most expensive. And I don’t use IFTTT so its ok.

To be honest, I wish these devices could be made to send a WOL packet after they been toggled on. Would make a great tool to remotely power on machines.

Looks pretty similar in functionality to the Belkin Wemo but the price looks a lot better!

Moshi Xync with Lightning Connector

Unfortunately seems like it has been discontinued and sold out

» Posted By sdchew On Sunday, 26th August 2018 @ 12:11

Is this still working for you?

Sony S-Frame DPF-HD700

I got the same item free as a free gift from my insurer… not too sure about you, but the novelty of the item died about 5 minutes after I played around with it… when I looked at it while standing up, the colours are all washed out… After 20 minutes, I put it back into the box… Not too sure your thoughts on this…

D-Link DGS-1008D

Question. The original switch died after 2 years, which is pretty short lifespan for a switch. Why did you decided to buy another 2 of them?
