Good afternoon all, it might be a little too late to order for delivery and get things in time for Christmas, but the show must go on, so we’re still here and writing away to make sure that we have a post up detailing our special offers for this week.
For those ordering for pickup, your orders will still arrive in time for Christmas as long as you get in before 1300 tomorrow, so you guys will be able to take advantage of some of our offers this week, if you’re so inclined.
Packard Bell Carbon 1TB:
Packard Bell’s Carbon is one of the few drives that we see giving Western Digital’s Elements 1TB a serious run for its money when it comes to people shopping for external drives to act as a backup or just as media storage.
Generally, the Western Digital wins that fight on the basis that it’s a few euro cheaper than the Packard Bell, but this week we have the Carbon knocked down by 7%, which makes it that bit cheaper than the Elements. It’s one of those cases where every little counts, and it’s hard to argue with something as simple as the Carbon being cheaper and the two being practically equal in every other respect.
The Packard Bell Carbon is, as well you may have guessed, a 1TB external drive. It’s mains powered, so you should to be aware that wherever you’re using it you’ll want to have a plug nearby. Remember, a hard drive isn’t just for Christmas… it’ll be months before you need to consider deleting anything again.
As we said earlier on, there’s nothing like giving someone the gift of an external backup for Christmas, for two reasons. The first is that if, and when, their machine falls over, you’ll be the one who gets some of the credit for making the backup possible. Second… you’ll get to sit around and look a bit smug, because you’re the only reason their system is still intact 😉
Still, 1TB for €71, you can’t really say fairer than that.
Razer Naga MMO Mouse:
When it comes to gaming mice, everyone has different needs depending on the kinds of games they’re into, the grip they use and the way they like their mouse weighted. It’s relatively simple, but there are few companies that get it right; “gaming mouse” for many, isn’t descriptive enough anymore.
The Naga is made specifically for those who are into MMOs, games that generally require a little less in the way of incredibly honed, twitch-based reflexes and a lot more in the way of instant access to a vast array of different options. With that in mind, the Naga is a broad, comfortable mouse that gives the player a practical phone-book worth of options.
Razer’s Naga is knocked down by 13% to €69. It’s got a 5600dpi sensor, so you’re sorted if you’re really picky about having an accurate sensor too 😉
Entirely independent of this, for those with a more first-person-shooter streak to them, I’ve been using Razer’s Deathadder for a few months now and I’m still loving it to pieces.
Vuzix iWear AV310:
Last up we have Vuzix’ iWear,which manages to be one of those strange little devices that we quite like, but were caught a bit off guard by. For all of those who saw the idea of glasses with a display mounted inside in the nineties and thought it was a fantastic idea… aren’t you lucky we’re living in the future?
Vuzix boasts that its iWear setup gives the impression of watching content from your portable devices on a 52” display, which is no mean feat. It’ll take output from an iPod Classic, iPod Touch or iPhone as well as any laptops with an S-Video out. There’s a full list over at our product page for it. If nothing else, it’s a visor… and according to our checklist of things from the nineties we haven’t seen enough of in the real future, it’s visors.
Anyway, since the end of last week we’ve dropped the Vuzix iWear to €158.99 from its old price of €199, which is always a nice thing to be able to say 🙂
