If you're in the mood to splurge for something new and expensive, then get your wallets ready. These five big-ticket items are costly, but they offer plenty for what you're paying for, and then some. We picked them because we do like them very much despite the pricing, and they are really good at what they do. Of course, if you don't feel like spending too much, feel free to check out our value for money gadget guide here.
Dyson 360 Vis Nav
Dyson's first robotic vacuum, the Dyson 360 Vis Nav, is pretty powerful. I like the strong suction, and retractable side brush, and the app that tells me where in my home is the most dusty. However, be prepared to pay a huge chunk of cash, as this Dyson vacuum costs almost twice as much as other robot vacuum models at S$1,999.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is the big-screen tablet you deserve. It has a fantastic screen, great performance, and good battery life. But it's also more of a luxury good than a must-have device. Especially given its S$1,888 price tag, which treads into laptop territory when you factor in the price of its S$588 keyboard accessory. It's definitely not for everyone.
Apple Studio Display
If you want to get the best display for your MacBook or Mac, you can't go wrong with Apple's own S$2,320 Apple Studio Display. This 5K monitor scales perfectly with macOS's intended 218ppi pixel density design, unlike 4K monitors. What this means is that macOS needs to virtually scale up the resolution to 5K before lowering it by a scale of two for a 4K monitor. But on the 5K Apple Studio Display, this is natively scaled for a clearer image.
Samsung Odyssey Ark
This is the monitor of gods, a display for NBA players or Erling Haaland. That's the first thing that came to my mind upon seeing the massive Samsung Odyssey Ark. It's almost a stretch to call the Ark a PC monitor because it has a gigantic 55-inch display that's also more curvy than usual. To its credit, Samsung has introduced a bunch of interesting features to make the Ark usable for ordinary mortals. But not all of these features pay off, while the size, and the whopping S$4,999 price tag, make the Ark more of a niche product.
Sony A7R V
The latest Sony A7R V (Alpha 7R V) is a great camera, but more for professionals. It packs a humongous 61MP sensor, super snappy autofocus, and an excellent four-way LCD display. With a hefty S$5,749 price tag for the body only, it's probably too much an ask for the normal consumer, but hey, if money is no object, then by all means, get this.
