I've got 3 things went broken in this very week.
- National EH5062A Hair Dryer 5 years+
Do you still see National branded products? Ha-ha now you can tell how old it is. Bought in 2003 if my memory serves me right. (Edited: March 21, 2003 confirmed!) I've been using it everyday throughout the years and it's been traveling with me to places like Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.
Was blow-drying my hair on Tuesday. All of a sudden, I heard a cracking sound inside the device followed by some loud rattling noise and then it smoked! I guess it'd had enough already so it's time to scout for a new one.
- Sonic Gear Tatoo 303 PC Speaker 7 months
My best companion at work (Was. Now Logitech FreePulse Wireless Headphones and the Bamboo Fun!). At just RM35, you can't ask for more from this little 3-piece PC speaker system. The tiny 5-watt sub-woofer doesn't deliver the dance floor experience but it certainly does the job on the office desk.
Not sure what caused the malfunction though. I often forgot to turn it off and left it on over the night and sometimes the weekend so maybe that's why. But the fact is my 8-year-old Altec Lansing speaker is still rocking and I never turn it off unless there is a power outage. I'll send it to All-IT tomorrow anyways.
- Lexma 7-port stackable USB hub 3 months
Got this as a replacement for my still-under-repair Belkin USB hub, and it died even sooner! In just 3 months it's no longer working now. The power outage a couple of nights ago is very likely to have contributed certain degree of damage. Thanks, TNB, but no thanks. I'll send it to ALL-IT and will check out the status of my Belkin hub.
Latest updates on the spring cleaning. I'm at 2% after Wednesday.
