First off, congratulations to Cooler Master for staying active in the scene for the past 25 years! More impressively, is that the constant improvement and reaching out to more fields of PCs over the years. As a celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Computex 2017 Cooler Master brings out some fantastic announcements with new products!
About a week ago, we reviewed the Apacer AC730 - that's an external hard disk built to handle all different types of harsh weathers and terrain. Then there's this - the Apacer AC630. On the surface, it might sound similar, but they're very different indeed.
Right - external hard disks. They're crucial to everyone - either for backups only, as a form of expanded storage, or for large file transfers. Whichever it is, durability is important and we know it. An external hard disk is always susceptible to accidents and suffers a premature death. Thus, the Apacer AC730 takes this durability to the extreme.
Such a product couldn't be at our labs at a much better, more suitable, and relevant time. With the recent news regarding the WannaCry ransomware, a network-attached storage, or NAS, like the Transcend StoreJet Cloud 110K is becoming more of a necessity in all homes. But then again - there are so many NASes available in the market, so is the Transcend StoreJet Cloud 110K suitable for you?
By now, I'm sure all of us have heard and seen news and videos about the brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. What many don't know is that Samsung Malaysia just officially launched bot of the flagships here in Malaysia - that means it's now locally available!
Whenever I ever went to any of the gadget stores recently, I see lots of USB drives. Most of them have this generic design they're trying to achieve - either being extremely tiny as an "expandable storage" for laptops, or one that has OTG capabilities for easy data transfer. Apacer wants to bring more than just convenience with the AH13A and AH15A - and here's what they've got.
The niche market for portable SSDs has obviously grown since the last time we ever saw any external USB-based SSD here at Nasi Lemak Tech. I mean, why else other manufacturers like Apacer join the bandwagon? Transcend returns with another portable SSD - this time it's called the Transcend ESD220C, and oh boy, it's vastly different from the ESD400 that they had last time.
It's rare that I am to speak highly of a Bluetooth speaker. Personally, I'm more of a 2.1 speaker guy than any other piece of audio device. I do have Bluetooth speakers lying around the room or house so I can grab and connect to one whenever I wish. There was never one true favorite Bluetooth speaker - but the Edifier MP233 changes that.
