Best Buy Canada: Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard (K400) | Was $50 Now $30

Oh hey there, my fellow Bargainmoosers! At this time, you can score a pretty sweet deal on a Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard – it normally retails for $49.99, but for a limited time you can buy it for $29.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping with your order, which is always a good thing!

The Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard allows users to have a little more freedom with their keyboard, since you are no longer restricted like you are with a wired keyboard. This keyboard provides you with up to 10 metres (33 feet) of wireless range. It also has a trackpad built into it.

My brother has this Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard, and he loves it. Every time I’m over there for a visit, we are both using this keyboard constantly – after all, he hooked up one of his computers to the 51″ LCD TV in his living room with an HDMI cable. With this Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard, we can both browse the web while sitting comfortably on a couch, or even from the kitchen! It really comes in handy when you’re watching videos on YouTube or Netflix, especially since this Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard has a trackpad on it to allow us to control the mouse icon without any issues.

Previously, we had a wireless keyboard and mouse setup (complete with a wireless mouse), but it made his living room look a little cluttered. It was also a pain to whip out the mouse pad in order to use the mouse, and this Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard certainly made things much more convenient for him. My girlfriend was the one that let us know about this handy wireless keyboard and trackpad, so I have to give her credit for that!

If you were to purchase this Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard from Amazon or Future Shop, it would cost you $49.99. Listed below is a brief review of this wireless keyboard from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

Works like a charm, keys are easy to use, can adjust the touchpad speed in mouse settings, inexpensive and the size is great for typing. I would recommend this to anybody wanting wireless ease.

This deal expires on October the 12th, so check out this keyboard while this deal’s still valid! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Microsoft Canada: Surface Type & Touch Covers $50 Off Today Only

Microsoft Canada: Surface Type & Touch Covers $50 Off Today Only

Today only, Microsoft has a great deal on their Surface type and touch covers, now $50 off. These rarely go on sale and I couldn’t find an equivalent price anywhere. You’ll also get free shipping on these from Microsoft.

If you have a Surface or are thinking about getting one, this is a deal that may pique your interest. These click-in keyboards have a variety of functions to make your life easier while using your Surface.

The first one on sale is the Type Cover 2, which was $129.99, now $79.99. It comes in four colours, in both French and English, including basic black or a fun purple. It is backlit so you can work in any type of lighting and has all the Windows shortcuts, function keys and media controls you need to navigate. Besides being a functional keyboard, it offers protection for your Surface against bumps and scratches. It has an overall 4-star rating, with the only complaint being the mousepad.

The second cover on sale is the Touch Cover 2. This one only comes in black and is now $69.99, regularly $119.99. It has all the same functions as the Type, with a lightweight frame that is spill-resistant. It doesn’t have as good of reviews as the $10 more Type Cover 2, but they aren’t bad.

The last and most expensive of the covers is the Power Cover, which also only comes in black. Not only a functional keyboard and cover, it also extends your battery life. This one was $199.99, now $149.99. The ratings say a lot about this cover, with an almost five-star rating:

I am using the Power Cover with the Pro 2 – and have to say I am delighted with the extra longevity. Here’s my typical use case: schlep the tablet with the Touch Cover 2 attached and work that way – but keep the Power Cover in my bag and attach as needed. Works fine. The only (small) quibble is, given the extra battery life, it would have been nice to have the same backlighting as on the Type Cover 2 – but that said, this is an awesome peripheral for the Surface Pro !

I did price compare these covers and couldn’t find any of them for less than the regular prices listed at the big box stores like Best Buy, Future Shop and The Source.

NCIX Canada: Microsoft Wireless Desktop Only $20

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM

NCIX Canada: Microsoft Wireless Desktop Only $20

If you need a wireless keyboard and mouse, look no further than this deal from NCIX. Get the Microsoft wireless desktop 800 for business for only $19.99 with a regular price of $39.99. You’ll also get free shipping too!

I just recently switched over to a wireless keyboard and mouse and wow, what a difference. I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. I struggled with the wire on my mouse every single day, as it usually got in my way and I had to move it. My husband gave me one he didn’t need and I can’t say how much I love it. It is also nice for packing on trips away as there are no wires to get all tangled in my bag.

I’d give you an overview of the product, but how much is there to say about a keyboard and mouse except that it works? It has a secured wireless connection of up to a 30 foot range and the cursor is very responsive. The keyboard sports frequently used hot keys and has zoom and audio controls. Your mouse also has a battery life indicator, which, for an unorganized person like me is a life saver.

Of course I price compared this unit to show you how you are getting the possible price. I found it at a number of retailers. Walmart has it on sale for $29, NewEgg has it for $26.99 plus $7 shipping, Dell has it for $39.99 and Best Buy has it on sale for $29.99. There are quite a few other stores that also have this unit in stock, if you wanted to continue the research, but NCIX always had the best price. Even the stores that have it on sale or clearance didn’t beat this price so NCIX definitely knows what it is doing.

There are a few reviews under the review tab, which give it about a 4 out of 5 stars. The main complaint is that the function keys are small. The main pro was that it is cheap and works and I’d have to agree.

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.

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!
