HWZ Deal Alert: 18th April 2019

Shop through the weekend, yo!

The week may be coming to an end, but nothing's gonna stop us from bringing you more great deals.

Less talk, more shopping - let's go!


1.) Huawei P30 Pro

The Huawei P30 Pro probably needs no further introduction (here's our review). But if there's one thing we must call out, it'd be its quad-camera system, which is made of a 40MP Sony sensor with improved low-light performance and better optical image stabilization, an 8MP telephoto module housed in an innovative periscopic build, an ultra-wide 20-megapixel lens, and a ToF 3D lens. All this combine to enable the camera's crazy 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom features. The 8GB RAM/256GB storage version has a sticker price of S$1,398, but there's a shop on Shopee that's now letting you pre-order one for S$1,230.

2.) Linksys Velop Mesh Wi-Fi System (WHW0103)

Linksys currently offers several packages of its Velop intelligent mesh Wi-Fi system, and this WHW0103 here is a 3-node (AC1300 each) package designed to blanket a 3- to 4-bedroom house with Wi-Fi. Like most mesh Wi-Fi products these days, the Velop takes just a few minutes to set up, and once done, the dual-band network can be easily managed (even remotely) through the Linksys mobile app. Most places are selling this 3-pack AC3900 Velop for S$299, but a retailer on Shopee has it going for S$259.35 now.

3.) ADATA XPG SX6000 Pro SSD

Offering up to 2,100MB/s and 1,500MB/s read and write speeds respectively, the ADATA XPG SX6000 Pro PCIe Gen3x4, NVMe 1.3-enabled SSD is also slimmer than standard M.2 2280 SSDs thanks to its single-sided design. According to Corbell, which distributes ADATA’s products, the prices for the 512GB and 1TB SX6000 Pro have just dropped to S$128 and S$239 respectively. If you’re at Sim Lim Square shopping for an SSD for your new system, remember to check out these shops.
