Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro Available in Singapore

Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is their latest addition to Samsung’s basic range, a compact smartphone that could do better in terms of it’s spec offering.

The new Galaxy J2 Pro boasts a 5” qHD Super AMOLED screen – which in numbers translate to a 960 x 540 screen. AMOLED might mitigate with better colours but don’t expect good sharpness at that sort of resolution. Running on only 1.5 GB RAM and a Snapdragon 425 CPU, this is not the phone for playing games. The camera is of better spec. With a 8MP (f2.2) rear camera and a 5MP (f2.2) front camera, the Galaxy J2 Pro allows users to capture the perfect selfies. With the front camera’s LED flash, users can now capture bright selfies even in low-light conditions, ensuring high-quality images anywhere and anytime. Read More

Review: ASUS B9440

The ASUS B9440 is a thin and sleek laptop that’s designed for business, but won’t look out of place for the design-conscious.

The AsusPro B9440 is a strong advocate of the ultrabook trend, with a slim frame, and tiny bezels on the display, allowing it to cramp a 14” screen into a 13.3” laptop body. Business users no longer need to forego style.

ASUS Unveils the Latest All-in-One PC Zen AiO ZN242 in Singapore

The new All-in-One ASUS AiO ZN242 is a compact and elegant 23.8-inch all-in-one PC with frameless NanoEdge display for immersive visuals.

Powering the Zen AiO (ZN242) is a 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics.

The Zen AiO (ZN242) is suited for those looking for a clean and uncluttered all-in-one PC with a metal-like Icicle Silver finish, and features many thoughtful and practical touches including a pop-up camera and hidden cooling vents in the rear logo. It has a sturdy, diamond-cut stand with an ultra-slim metal base adorned with our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish. Starting from today, the Zen AiO (ZN242) will be available at all ASUS Brand Stores and authorised retailers at $1,998.

NanoEdge Frameless Display with a 2mm Bezel

The Zen AiO (ZN242) has a 23.8-inch Full HD NanoEdge frameless display with a near-invisible 2mm physical bezel, giving an industry-leading 90% screen-to-body ratio for immersive viewing. The ultra-slim bezel reduces the overall size of the device, making it similar in size to some 22-inch AiO models. This gives it a slim and compact design that allows users to maximise space in the home. The NanoEdge display features 178° wide-view technology that makes it perfect for sharing pictures or videos, while the wide 100% sRGB colour gamut ensures richer and more life-like colours.

Desktop-grade Performance in an All-in-One PC

The Zen AiO (ZN242) delivers the performance of a traditional desktop PC, and it can handle even the most demanding tasks with ease thanks to its 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor — one of the most powerful models in the Intel consumer processor lineup. And with 16GB DDR4 RAM, the Zen AiO (ZN242) makes multi-tasking effortless. Gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics gives it the visual prowess to handle the most graphically-demanding AAA games or video-editing software.

Simple and Elegant

The Zen-inspired design of the Zen AiO (ZN242) has beautifully clean and uncluttered lines that bring a touch of simple elegance to any environment. Its solid-metal stand is slim and unobtrusive, with a perfectly balanced hinge for easy tilt adjustment. The metal-like rear cover features an ingenious ventilation system incorporated in the ASUS logo, keeping it cool without the need for unsightly grilles. And to add subtle brilliance, the stand base and power button feature the iconic ASUS spun-metal finish, with its lustrous pattern of concentric circles.

Immersive Audio and Windows Hello Support

With its two powerful bass-reflex stereo speakers and exclusive ASUS SonicMaster Premium audio technology, the Zen AiO (ZN242) delivers a total of 6W of incredibly rich and crystal-clear sound. A smart amplifier intelligently monitors and adjusts the speaker output to product the maximum possible volume with minimal distortion for truly immersive entertainment.

Pop-up HD Camera Panel

The Zen AiO (ZN242) is packed with clever and practical details, like the pop-up camera on the top of the display. For privacy, the camera is neatly hidden when not in use. But with just a touch, it is ready for action.

Far-field voice-recognition microphone technology allows users to access Cortana from up to four meters away, enabling them to interact with the Zen AiO (ZN242) even in noisy environments or from across the room.

Review: Logitech M585 Multi Tasking Mouse with Logitech Flow

The Logitech M585 is smarter than your average mouse. Logitech has made it multi-device compatible, and can be used with more than 1 device with Logitech Flow.

The Logitech M585 is the typical fare from Logitech. It’s rather compact and has the bumps in the right places for an ergonomic fit, and has two additional navigation buttons on the sides. The 1000 DPI sensor is nothing exceptional. In fact, I think compared to other Logitech mice, such as the M280, the M585 looks rather boring. The key difference then, is the ability to work across multiple devices.

The mouse itself supports both the USB dongle setup (Logitech Unifying receiver) and Bluetooth connection. You can pair it with your Android or iOS devices too and manually toggle using the button below the scroll wheel. But if you are setting up between two computers, you can go one step better with Logitech Flow. Logitech Flow allows you to seamlessly transit from one device to another by automatically detecting your screen edges to transit control. However, in order to get a full seamless experience, you would probably need a compatible Logitech keyboard, which for now is limited to a few models.

Lo

One thing to note, Logitech Flow implementation requires that the devices are individually paired to the two computers, and that they are on the same network. Logitech Flow not only offers control, it also allows you to copy and paste files easily between the two computers. One advantage I feel that Logitech Flow has over other software KVM implementations is the ability to use the computers independently, and also a better response time. What this means is: (1) improved productivity: You don’t need to switch to a different set of keyboard / mice for your other computers and (2) a neater desktop!

Back to the mouse, it uses an invisible optic sensor so no bright red laser flashes, and the compatibility with different surface material is pretty high. The bulk of the mouse is covered in a textured rubber for a generally nice grip. The curved profile makes offers a nice relax grip. I felt the left and right click buttons used too much plastic, and were a little noisy in action. The scroll wheel is pretty good though. Each scroll level is indented, and yet, the wheel is very smooth, which allows for very precise scrolling.

The M585 Mouse is sold exclusively online on Lazada through the Logitech Online exclusive store. There is an ongoing promotion for the M585 – 15% off! M585 for the whole month of October at only $41.65 (original price $49!). Shipping is free and also super fast.
