We always got a friend who is always hot about the latest in technology. This season of sharing, it always feels good to give something to the people who you consider family and friends. You can consider us your friend, but we’d rather have you give something to other people you love this Christmas.

Today, we list down 7 of the cool things we found online that can definitely make your friends smile this season. Whether they are photography enthusiasts or gaming buffs, the list we prepared got everything covered.

Let’s get the ball rolling!

Kingston A400 SSD: More storage more games!

Kingston A400 SSDIt always feels good to have a brand new SSD for those who love playing games on their PCs. Whether they are going to use it as main OS hard drive or another storage for new games (yes, load new Steam games there, buddy!), the Kingston A400 SSD surely packs the features and size options to keep them playing all night.

A 240GB A400SSD costs around PhP2,750 and may be bought at Lazada or Shopee (Playbook Store) for added convenience. We encourage you to buy it as early as possible as supplies may be limited. If you’ve got the time to visit stores during your spare time or in the weekend, we’ve listed down all the stores at the end of our list.

Why are we recommending this?

  • Fast start-up of OS or games
  • Reliability

Kingston Canvas Select SD Card

Kingston Canvas Select SD Card

Give this to your friends or family who are fond of taking photos and videos. There are plenty of reasons why we’re recommending this apart from its price (yup, a 128GB only costs PhP2,350). For one, if you’re getting the 128gb with 1 UHS-I Speed, your friends can shoot videos up to cinema-quality HD and even 3D video. There is also a variant of Canvas Select SD card that has 3 UHS-I Speed Class, which allows you to shoot 4K.

If you’re buying one for a friend, it pays to know the maximum video resolution of his videos to know the right class of Canvas Select you’re getting for him. Here’s a quick guide we got online:

CardWhy are we recommending this?

  • Plenty of class options to choose from
  • Waterproof, shock and vibration proof, protected from airport X-rays and temperature proof
