As you have probably guessed by now, I am a brand conscious
person and my all time favourite brand is Sony. Heck I have
so many Sony stuff that you might think that I am actually sponsored
by SONY (Yah in my dreams). NOTHING TOUCHES THESE HANDS BUT
Here is my SONY collection in chronological order (Pictures
taken by SONY DSC V1 and DSC P2)
|1) The one that started it all:
The Sony Vaio PCG SR33
Laptop which I bought in the spring of 2002. Both my housemates
(Joel and Alan) were each getting laptops so I thought
"Hey! What the hell, I can't be left out!" so
I placed a bid on Ubid.com (the ultimate scam site beware!!)
SONY PCG-SR33(refurbished) -- Price: USD 750
Celeron 600, 10", 10 gig HDD, 128 meg ram, 8mb video
card, weight:1.2 pounds
Unfortunately this hunk of junk stopped working recently
but I think it has been utilised enough to cover the $$
|2) The first Sony Camera
The Sony Digital Still
Camera DSC P-2 camera which I bought in
the summer of 2002. Since the laptop above comes with
a memorystick slot, I thought "You know, what the
hell I might as well get that nice new Sony camera that
just came out!" so I went to Penisula Plaza and blew
my intership allowance on a brand new P-2. Sad to say,
2 weeks later the price of this baby dropped by $100....
SONY DSC P-2 -- Price: SGD 700
2MP, 3x Optical Zoom, comes with 16mb Memory Stick. This
camera has been with me to the USA, Spain, France &
Puerto Rico. I have since given this camera to my folks.
|3) The 3rd SONY Discman/MP3 Player
In fact, the first ever Discman I had was a Sony (Dunno
what model number). The second was also another Sony.
both were sold after I got this baby... the waterresist,
G-protection Sports MP3/CD SONY
S2 DCS-901 Discman brand new from Ebay
in the winter of 2002.
SONY DCS-901 Discman -- Price: USD 100
CD audio/MP3 player. G-Protection Shock resist, sports
strap, one touch joystick (play/rewind/forward). This
thing is so solid that if I used it to hit your head,
the last thing you will remember will be me dancing to
the still-playing music over your fallen body.
|4) The 1st Sony Ericssion Phone
Both my new housemates refused to get a fixed landline,
instead relying only on their handphones (selfish !@#!s)
So I had no choice but to purchase a mobile plan from
T-Mobile from Amazon.com in the summer of 2003. The good
thing is-- this Sony Ericsson
T68i came with the plan for -$0.01
Sony Ericsson T68i Handphone -- Price: USD -0.01($99.99
with $100 rebate from Amazon.com). This has since been
replaced by my new camera phone but it remains as a standby
phone in case I need to go into base or something.
|5) The PLAYSTATION2
I was getting really really bored in the Fall of 2003
so I waited patiently for a good deal on the SONY
PlayStation 2 and swooped in to purchase
my best companion for the remainder of my Cornell days....
Sony Playstation 2 with online pack -- Price: USD 199
Still playing!! (Don't tell anyone but this has been
modded with a Infinity 1.2 chip)
|6) The 2nd Sony camera
The P-2 was getting outdated really quickly! Therefore
in the Spring of 2004, I waited patiently for
www.dell.com to have a good deal on the not so new but
feature packed SONY DSC-V1.
And finally, with some luck, the deal came and I pounced
Sony DSC V-1 Prosumer Camera -- Price: USD 378
5 MP. 4x optical zoom, holographic focus assist, manual
functions, flash hotshoe. My favourite camera.. excellent
pictures, easy to use and compact to boot!!! 3 cheers
for this buy!! No regrets at all!!!
|7) The 4th Sony Discman/MP3 player
Graduation time! And time for some changes. The new
SONY DNS 505
player just came out at Bestbuy for a measly $79.99 and
it looks sooooo cool to boot!!!
Sony DNS 505 S2 Discman -- Price: USD $79.99
ATRAC3/MP3/CD player, water resist, shock resist, Heat
dissipation cover (why the hell would I need that?!?),
Equalizer, right/left hand configurations... etc etc All
in all a good buy but its almost the same as my old D-CS
|8) And Finally, the 2nd SE handphone
Everybody has a color camera phone!!
Not wanting to be left out, I immediately blew $500 on
the Sony Ericsson K700i...
Sony Ericsson K700i Handphone -- Price: SGD 498 with
free Akono BT headset
Using it currently...
|And thats it for now (not counting the tons
of Sony Pictures DVDs and Sony music cds that I have)....
The next SONY purchase might be the TR3A
Vaio laptop who knows? When I get my bonus
