HWZ Deal Alert: 22nd May 2017

HWZ Deal Alert: 22nd May 2017

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

There’s always time to look for good deals, and we start your week right with them.



This specific RT-AC87U router descended from long line of ASUS’s fastest routers to grace the market, and it did well in our 2014 review. As an early AC2400 router, it supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and it has a speed of 1,733Mbps on Wireless AC along with 600Mbps on Wireless N.

ASUS has a quiet little sale going on for the RT-AC87U over at Lazada and Qoo10. Both sites have listed the router at S$259 (original price S$309). This offer will only be available until 28th May 2017, so grab it while it’s still up!


GoPro Hero5 (Black)

The GoPro Hero5 is an action camera that records at 4K resolution (30 frames per second). It’s waterproof up to 10 meters, simple to operate with its one-button control, and it comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. As the literal hero product of the GoPro series, it also comes with voice control, auto-upload to cloud storage, a 2-inch touch display, and support for RAW + WDR photos.

It officially retails at S$640, and the online Apple store has it cheaper at S$590. However, both of them aren’t as low as this S$495 offer on Lazada. That’s up to S$145 in savings!


Seagate Backup Plus Slim (2TB)

When the Seagate Backup Plus Slim external hard drive first launched in 2014, Seagate believed it to be the slimmest portable hard drive to hit the markets. It was available in a variety of storage sizes, with 2TB being the largest available back then.

Over at Lazada, you can grab one at just S$129, down from the original S$239 price tag. That’s a 46% discount and S$110 in savings. Also, you can’t have too many back-up copies.
