Welcome to my gadget section, where I share all the gadgets/tech equipment that I have. I'm not a gadget freak, but I consider myself a little into the "freak-zone". Let me start with my humble workstation:


Workstation

> Core2Duo E6750 2.66Ghz
> Gigabyte P35-DS3P
> GeForce 8800GTS 320MB (Leadtek)
> 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 (Patriot/Kingston)
> WD Raptor 150GB + Seagate 7200.8 250GB SATA + Seagate 500GB USB
> Dell 20" LCD + CMV 15" LCD
> BenQ 1670
> D-link DGL-4300 gaming router
> MS Wireless Laser mouse 8000
> NZXT Zero Full tower Aluminum
> WinVista Ultimate

 

I used to me more aggressive on my PC upgrades but I toned down due to other commitments and decided to move my interests into home theatre and movies. I always have more movies that I can watch!

Room Theatre

I have an old review of my bedroom theatre under the classics section. Be sure to check that out. Anyways, my theatre is currently confined to a room and I have the following main equipment:

> Philips 50PF7320G 50" plasma
> Pioneer VSX-516 7.1 Receiver
> Philips BDP7200 BluRay Player
> Panasonic SB FS-803A 5pc satellite speakers
> Media Center PC (described above)


My main source of video is from my media center PC, which is connected to my plasma screen through VGA (I felt this gave the best quality for standard definition). I've got a RF remote to go along with the media center too.

The Blu player is obviously connected through HDMI. I do have a cable box through CVBS, which gives decent quality.


I also occasionally game on my system, through my PC. All thanks to my BT wireless MS 8000 mouse. I'm quite particular about the graphics, especially anti-aliasing. I can't stand "jaggies". PC graphics provide the best so far. I do intend to move into console gaming in the near future, so as to reduce PC upgrades.

Do check out my Bedroom theatre review under the classics section for more pictures!



Handhelds / Phones

My first phone was the Siemens C35. I was attracted to it mainly because of it's low price and relatively small form-factor at that time. I eve got a serial cable to customize my screen on it. After about a year, I traded-in for a Siemens ME45. This is one rugged phone, which I still have until now. Basically a more feature-packed phone than C35. I remember using it with my early PDAs to connect to ICQ via GPRS and infrared.
My last mobile phone which I ever used was a pretty big mistake. I bought the SE T610 close to during launch and it was one of the first feature-packed phone in terms of color screen and camera. It was pretty buggy and I traded in for the O2 XphoneII shortly.

Below are the rest of the devices I've owned:



All of the devices were good, except for the O2 Atom and HP RW6828. They were made by Quanta China and of poorer quality. Currently I'm carrying the Diamond as my primary phone and the HTC P3300 as spare.

Other devices

Basically, 2 other more used devices would be the Logitech VX Nano mouse and the iPod Nano Gen3 4GB. The VX Nano mouse is an excellent product, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a wireless laptop mouse. It is well built, well sized and the tiny receiver feels very sturdy when connected


The iPod is used only for jogging. I am impressed on how Apple handles its on-screen animation on their devices. However, I just hate how it manages your music through iTunes, relying on heavily on ID3 tags.
