Canada Computers: Logitech Wireless Mouse Only $25

Canada Computers: Logitech Wireless Mouse Only $25

I recently got myself a wireless and didn’t realize how much I would love it. Seriously, why do we need all these wires getting caught on stuff and jamming us up? If you’ve been stopping yourself from getting one, check out this hot deal from Canada Computers. The Logitech T620 wires 2.4 GHz optical touch mouse is on clearance and now only $24.88, with a regular price of $69.88, saving you $45!

Why You Need This 

If there is probably one thing you use just as much as your smartphone, it is your mouse. I use a computer a large portion of the day and my keyboard and mouse are pretty important tools in what I do. If they didn’t work correctly or were not comfortable, they’d be getting the boot pretty quick.

All of the specs for this mouse are what you’d expect from a wireless mouse, like quick response, comfortable curves, effortless clicking and more. This almost sounds like a dating ad. You can use regular batteries or rechargeable to keep the costs cheap on your mouse after the fact. Did you see this Eneloop batteries deal? This might be good to get with your mouse!

Price Comparison

There are only about 10 units left for this deal, so I wouldn’t wait to get one. The expiry does say September, but I’m sure it won’t last until then. I price compared online and found a few stores sold out of this mouse. I did find it at Direct Canada, where the mouse is $48.60 and Amazon, where it is $49.87. Both prices aren’t as high as the $70 regular price, but Canada Computer’s price beats both prices by far.

Shipping

Shipping is based on where you live and for me it was $8.84, but you can also pick up in store for free.

Canada Computers: Razer BlackWidow Gaming Keyboard Only $69

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Canada Computers: Razer BlackWidow Gaming Keyboard Only $69

Canada Computers has a great deal on the Razer BlackWidow 2013 expert mechanical keyboard. Making way for the 2014 models, it is now on clearance with $30 off, now only $69.88, was $99.88.

If you are considering a new gaming keyboard and are holding out for the 2014 version, consider that it will probably be more than the original price of this one, so you could be paying $50 more for only a small step up. This keyboard is top-of-the-line, with tactile feedback, superior gaming response, and fast key actuations. It also has enhanced anti-ghosting technology and 10-key roll-over in gaming mode. There is room to plug in other gaming or storage devices. The colour is black, and it is anti-fingerprint, so no one will know how much you really use it.

Be aware that because this is a clearance item, it may have an already opened box or be a display model and there is no further discount for this. There are only a few left online and not many in-stock at the stores, so I wouldn’t wait to grab one if you want it.

Shipping is based on where you live and assessed differently with each item.

CanadaComputers: ROCCAT Kone XTD for only $60 (Save $30)

Posted by on January 22, 2014 at 8:30 PM

CanadaComputers: ROCCAT Kone XTD for only $60 (Save $30)Get $30 off a top notch, precision ROCCAT Kone XTD gaming mouse from Canada Computers!

I try not to do this too often but am going to pull a copy and paste job on some of the features of this because there are a lot and the people who make the mouse are going to do a better job of telling you about them than I am. Hopefully this will help you fully realise how awesome this mouse really is and what all the features do.

  • Fully-Adjustable 8200DPI Pro-Aim (R3) Sensor – with 41 true DPI settings, from 200 to 8200
  • ROCCAT Click Master – switch tech powered by Omron for precision button activation
  • Easy-Shift[+] Button Duplicator – with Easy-Aim + Easy-Wheel functions for max command power

Pretty awesome, huh? There are many more features though, click through to see the list.  People always talk about how much power they are putting in to cell phones nowadays but I think it’s more impressive the amount of processing power they are putting in to the most basic of peripherals, the mouse. They have a 72MHz ARM chip in here, not to mention 576KB of RAM. It doesn’t sound like a lot nowadays of course, but it’s a lot for a mouse.

This thing has pretty good reviews getting an 8/10 from critics and a 9/10 from consumers according to Engadget. Of course they only have one critic review and one consumer review so take that for what it is. AnandTech reviewed the mouse and loved it but said it was a bit pricey. Luckily for you we are saving you $30 on this awesome mouse. It’s normally selling for $89.99 but you get it for $59.99!

Shipping is based on where you live or you can buy online and pickup in-store if you live nearby.

CanadaComputers: Samsung 24 Series 3 LED Monitor for only $150 (Save $30)

Get this 24″ Samsung beauty for less from Canada Computers.

I haven’t been in the market for a monitor in a long, long time so I needed to check prices to make sure this was a decent deal. I poked around and, as it turns out, it’s a good deal. I’ve seen them selling anywhere from $180 to $225. You are getting it for $149.99. That’s $30 off the original of $179.99.

Again, I haven’t been in the market for a monitor in a log time but I have been looking for a new TV lately and Samsung is the top of my list. And what is a TV but a big monitor, right? I know it’s a bit different but the things that make it different are basically software and inputs. A LCD panel is still and LCD panel regardless of size and form factor. They even made some of the best monitors back in the CRT days.

Shipping is based on where you live. As usual you’d be best to pick it up in store if you can.

CanadaComputers: Asus B400A Ultrabook – 14.1″ Screen, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD for $749 (Save $200)

CanadaComputers: Asus B400A Ultrabook   14.1 Screen, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD for $749 (Save $200)

Get your Asus Ultrabook for only $749 at Canada Computers!

CanadaComputers has this listed as a “business ultrabook” which is probably because it’s a bit underpowered. Of course a lot of people buy way more computer than they need. If you do email, Facebook and cat videos on YouTube, this is going to work just fine for you. You don’t need to go all out unless you’re going to play some newer games, do video editing or any other heavy lifting. That being said, you can certainly do worse than this computer. It’s not so underpowered as to be a hindrance.

Of course you can also use it for legitimate business purposes. Accounting software, word processors, email and other business applications don’t generally need a high powered machine so if you’re running a small business or home business and don’t want to spend too much on a computer, this one is fine. You want to focus on running your business, not worry about technology.

I looked around and it seems most places are selling this for around the $999 price point so this is a legitimately good deal from Canada Computers. You’re going to get it for $749. That’s $200 off of the original $949. Shipping is based on where you live. If you’re near one of the Canada Computers locations (Ontario and Quebec) you can pick it up for free.

Canada Computers: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2013 only $115 (save $25)

Clack! Clack! Click! Clack! Click! If that sound makes you nostalgic for your old keyboard, Canada Computers has the deal for you!

Our younger readers might not be familiar with the clack, clack to which I refer. The clack, clack is the sound of a mechanical keyboard, which many computer users believe to be the best kinds of keyboards ever made. The prime example of these keyboards is the IBM Model M Keyboard. The tactile and auditory feedback on these keyboards are amazing and, while I won’t go in to it all here, you can Google around for people talking about why these keyboards are the best. Or you can just trust me. They are. I’d even go as far as to say these keybaords are the reason that our phones have haptic feedback and key sounds.

The Razer BlackWidow 2013 Ultimate Edition marries the idea of an old school mechanical keyboard with the new gaming keyboard luxuries. Luxuries like individually backlit keys, on-the-fly programmable macros and 5 extra dedicated gaming keys. In short: this keyboard is awesome.

You can get this awesome keyboard for only $114.99! that’s $25 off the original $139.99 price tag. If you’re looking for a last minute gift idea for the PC gamer in your life, I’d go with this or one of the other great Razer items on sale at Canada Computers! While price comparing, I found that no store had this keyboard for less than $159, so know that this is a great deal, even before the sale.

Shipping is different based on where you are or you can pick it up if you live near a store.

Canada Computers: CyberPower 900W UPS $150 (Save $50)

Posted by on August 24, 2013 at 11:30 PM

Canada Computers: CyberPower 900W UPS $150 (Save $50)

Protect all your expensive electronics with a UPS from Canada Computers and save $50 while you’re at it.

I did a bit of looking around because I didn’t really know the prices of UPS’ nowadays. I haven’t shopped for a UPS in years. Actually, the last UPS I priced was a UPS for an entire office building. It was a tiny bit more money than this. Anyway, the cheapest I found this UPS (other than the sale at Canada Computers) was for $170, but it was also on sale for $50 off. The starting price was $20 more. This one was originally $199.99. You save $50 so you only end up paying $149.99.

A lot of people don’t have a UPS and I think, for a lot of them, it’s because they don’t know what it is. Basically, a UPS is a big battery that can run your equipment for a little while during a power outage. You keep your computer, monitor, TV, sound system, and whatever else you want plugged into it, and when the power goes out it kicks in to keep the item powered. This prevents your electronics from sustaining damage, prevents computers from data loss and gives you enough time to shut everything down. It also protects against power surges and conditions the power coming in.

Most good UPS’, including this one, have a software package that will save open files and shut down your computer if the power goes out and you aren’t around. This particular one has four battery and surge protected outlets, four surge protected only outlets and protection for network, serial and coaxial connections. It also has an LCD display to monitor the status of the unit.

Shipping is based on what you get and where you ship it. UPS’ are pretty heavy, so shipping may seem expensive.

CanadaComputers: Save $50 On Corsair Vengeance 2000 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset

CanadaComputers: Save $50 On Corsair Vengeance 2000 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset

Save $50 on the Corsair Vengance 2000 and pick them up for only $89.99 at Canada Computers!

The Vengeance 2000 are normally $139.99, but you only pay $89.99 after the $50 discount!

I have to be honest with you, I had no idea that Corsair made headphones. I thought they were a memory manufacturer. As it turns out, they make a lot of stuff. So I approached this product with skepticism. I’ve always been weary of companies who make a lot of disparate things, like GE who makes jet engines for planes to go blow people up and medical equipment. I decided to go right to the source of public opinion: consumers.

Consumers seem to dig these headphones. I hopped on NCIX.com and checked their reviews for this item. It has 4.5/5 stars. People really seem to dig these headphones! Some of the reviews mentioned that they needed an update to get the surround to work, but it seems like the update has been released.

Shipping is based on where you live.

Canada Computers: Save $100 On Nikon D3100 + Lens + Free Extra Battery! ($399)

Get $100 off this Nikon camera and lens plus a free battery worth $79.99 at Canada Computers.

The main deal here is the $100 you save off of the $499 original price. You only have to pay $399! On top of that you can get a free extra battery for your camera. The battery is normally $79.99. To get the free battery, just add the camera and then the battery to your cart. It’ll show yuu total savings of $179.99.

I don’t really know anything about cameras, but I’ve always like Nikon. Not sure why. Regardless, I looked at the reviews for this camera on Amazon and it has a bunch of 5-stars. The camera also comes with an AF-S 18-55mm VR Lens. The Nikon EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery is 1030 mAh and fits a whole bunch of cameras, so even if you have other Nikons, it could be a spare for that one as well.

Shipping is different depending on where you are.

What kind of camera do you use now? Is your phone enough, or do you lug around a DSLR? Maybe just a point and shoot or how about a micro 4/3? Let me know in the comments below.

Canada Computers: Buy Intel Core i5 Or Core i7 & Get FREE Copy Of GRID 2 & T Shirt

Where can you go to get dressed AND have fun for FREE when you get a processor? Only Canada Computers and BargainMoose!

The deal here is that if you buy a Core i5 or Core i7 processor, you get a FREE copy of GRID 2 for PC and a FREE GRID 2 T-Shirt! Awesome deal!

I don’t follow racing games at all, but I haven’t really been able to not follow this one. I see it everywhere. It seems every retailer wants to put this game somewhere right up front. I don’t know if it’s just a PR blitz, but if it is and the Codemasters PR shills are reading this, I’d gladly take your money for writing this great article about your wonderful game!

I actually can’t say this is wonderful just because I don’t play racing games. They’re just not my thing. If racing is your thing, though, you should definitely check it out. You don’t see a lot of high profile racing games anymore. The last super hyped racing game I remember was Gran Turismo 5 and that was almost three years ago. GRID 2 has an 82% rating on Metacritic.

Shipping with Canada Computers is based on where you live and what you buy.

Canada Computers: Logitech Sale – Save Up to $50 on Keyboards, Mice, Webcams & Headsets

Posted by on May 28, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Canada Computers: Logitech Sale   Save Up to $50 on Keyboards, Mice, Webcams & Headsets

If you want a good quality peripheral at a good price, Logitech is the way to go. If you want an even better price, Canada Computers is the way to go!

There are a lot of items on sale here. Forty to be exact. The range is very good as well. You can get everything from the most basic mouse up to high end gaming keyboards and everything in between. Here are a few of the items available:

I love Logitech. I’ve always loved Logitech and I think a lot of people feel the same way about them as I do. They’ve been around making great products forever it seems and I think a lot of  people got their first third party keyboard or mouse from them. Certainly the majority of the webcams I saw when I was growing up were Logitech ball cams.

I think the key for Logitech is it’s range in products and price. If you have the money to spend, you can really go all out and get some amazing hardware but if are on a tighter budget, you can still pick up something cool.

Even the TWiT network, a multi-million dollar organization, sends out the Logitech C920 webcam to their hosts so they can skype in to shows. For people looking for some mobile gear there is an iPad2 case on sale here that I’ve heard people rave about. Personally I wouldn’t mind picking up that touchpad to throw in my gear bag.

Shipping depends on what you buy and where you live.

What’s your favourite brand of peripheral? Logitech or something else? Let me know in the comments below!

Canada Computers: Only $30 For Microsoft Wireless Touch Mouse (Save $35)

Posted by on May 12, 2013 at 8:30 PM

Canada Computers: Only $30 For Microsoft Wireless Touch Mouse (Save $35)

Does the mouse seem kind of old and outdated? Well, that’s because it is. Update your mouse with the Microsoft Wireless Touch Mouse from CanadaComputers!

Microsoft’s Wireless Touch Mouse is normally $64.99, but with this deal you save $35. That means you only have to pay $29.99!

The traditional mouse is really outdated. I mean, there have been some minor changes, but nothing significant. What we’ve been seeing is other input methods, mainly the touch screen, taking over. Even things like Microsoft Kinect, Sony Play and the Nintendo Wii were considered new methods of input. The mouse has been left in the dust.

Since then, Microsoft (and others) have decided that no, the mouse wasn’t ready to die yet. They’ve taken the mouse and married it to the touch screen. We’ve all used touchpads on laptops and as of late, traditional touchpads have been getting a bit more advanced. They’ve begun integrating some of the touch gestures we have become used to with our phones and tablets. That’s pretty much what Microsoft’s Wireless Touch Mouse is: a mouse whose top surface is a touchpad. It lets you zoom, manage apps, scroll and do other things via different gestures. Very cool.

Shipping from Canada Computers is based on where you are, so it will vary, but if you’re in Toronto, for example, it’s $7.50.

Canada Computers: FREE Copy of Metro: Last Light With Purchase of GeForce GTX Video Card

Canada Computers: FREE Copy of Metro: Last Light With Purchase of GeForce GTX Video Card

Metro: Last Light is going to be huge and as is commonplace with most huge, new games, it’s gonna be a resource hog. Give it the resources to pig out on with a new GeForce GTX Video Card from Canada Computers and Electronics.

When you pick up a GeForce GTX 660 video card or higher you’re going to get Metro: Last Light (PC) via digital download. It’ll run through Steam. Retail price is around $50. Shipping on the game is free since it’s a digital download and shipping on the video cards depends on where you live and what you buy. It’s not a flat rate. If you live near a Canada Computers location in Ontario or Quebec, you can pick up your GeForce GTX in-store for free.

Metro: Last Light is the sequel to the Ukrainian game Metro 2034 which is based on a 2005 Russian novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky. And a partridge in a pear tree! Getting away from the game for just a second, isn’t it great when something spawns a whole bunch of other awesome properties?  The book has also gotten a sequel and a whole series of books written by other authors, as well as two games. Anywho, Metro: Last Light has been pushed like no other. It’s been on video game stores for months and it isn’t even out yet! I did some looking around and it looks like it’s going to be an awesome game.

One of the things that makes it awesome is the graphics. I’m not really a graphics guy in that I don’t need good graphics to enjoy a game. My current PC games of choice are Warcraft 3 and Portal. The original Portal. It’s gameplay that matters to me. That being said though, if the graphical ponies are there, let them gallop. To do that you’re going to need a good video card and with this deal you get a great, beautiful game when you buy a GeForce GTX 660 or higher video card. There are dozens of cards available and the price ranges anywhere from $200 to $1100 so there is a video card here for everyone!

Canada Computers & Electronics: $110 Off Brother All-in-One Printer (Now $140)

Posted by on May 5, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Canada Computers & Electronics: $110 Off Brother All in One Printer (Now $140)

Whether you’re an IT goon at a huge company or just starting up a small business, this printer and the price offered by Canadian Computers is awesome.

The Brother MFC-7460DN laser printer is normally $250, but you get it for $140 after the $110 savings!

I spend a decent amount of time in my day job configuring and installing printers. I’ve installed a lot of Brother MFC-7460DNs. The fact that most of the thousands of independently-owned locations that I support have chosen this printer, and that I can pick it out pf the pack, speaks volumes for it. I’ve never used one personally, but I’ve set a lot of them up and they are a dream to set up. Their BRAdmin tool makes it the easiest network printer to set up, hands down.

This is, as I mentioned, an All-in-One unit that can really act as the central piece of equipment in an office. It faxes, prints, scans and copies. The network features mean that you can easily share it out to all the computers on the network. It also allows you to make changes to the network independent of the printer. Very helpful.

Shipping will depend on where you are having your order delivered. Just to use as an example, to ship this All-in-One Printer to Saskatchewan, the fee would be $25.60.

DOUBLE DISCOUNT TODAY ONLY! Save $60 and get a 120GB OCZ SSD for $79.99

It’s all I need, to get me where I’m goin’! Speeeeeed Demon! Pick up this little speed demon for super cheap. The 120GB Solid State Hard Drive was $139.99 and is now $79.99 after a $15 mail-in rebate and a $45 discount.

If you know what the big deal with SSD is, you don’t need to go much further than that link up there. Buy one, be very happy.

If you don’t, Samsung has put together a very nice list of the top 10 reasons SSD beats a traditional HDD.

  1. Speed Up Your Boot-Up
  2. Zip through File Searches
  3. Trim File Transfer Time by Almost a Third
  4. Start Applications in Seconds
  5. Double File-Compilation Power
  6. Cut Downtime by Half
  7. Reduce Power Consumption
  8. Master Multitasking
  9. Cut Video-Editing Time
  10. Take it Anywhere

I’ll let you in on a secret about this list. It’s only a three item list. Everything on here except for item 7 and 10 are the same. The list should read as such:

  1. It’s fast
  2. Reduce Power Consumption
  3. Take it Anywhere

SSD (Solid State Drive) means there are no moving parts. It’s just a bank of memory chips. That means it’s fast. As for the other two, the low power consumption is pretty straight forward. It doesn’t have a motor spinning a metal disk so it uses less power, the last one is again due to no moving parts. If you use your laptop anywhere that it might be dropped or vibrated a lot, there is a chance the moving parts will break. The SSD has no moving parts so there is nothing to break.
