Tiger Direct Canada: $80 Off Dell 24″ Widescreen LED ST2421L Monitor (Now $170 | Was $250)

Posted by on June 19, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Tiger Direct Canada: $80 Off Dell 24 Widescreen LED ST2421L Monitor (Now $170 | Was $250)There is an awesome deal at Tiger Direct right now for $80 off a Dell 24″ widescreen LED ST2421L monitor right now. Instead of its full price of $249.99, you can get it for just $169.97.

The biggest factors that influence my decision when picking any kind of electronic item are the number of reviews and overall rating because very often it may look good on paper but then severely lack in the performance department. Out of 80 reviews, this monitor actually has 4.8 stars out of 5 with happy customers having written comments like this one:

Delivery was fast, and installation was a breeze. Really like the fact that there are (3) connection points for future upgrades. The only downside is that it is not wall mountable, but with a clear picture and sharp images would highly recommend especially for this price.

Plus, out of all those reviews, only two rated this monitor with less than 4 stars!

With a 24″ screen, this monitor features an LED widescreen with an HD display and full 1080p, along with 60Hz and an 16:9 aspect ratio. The HD display is particularly useful for multi-tasking and watching movies but what I like about it the most is that it has an anti-glare display, which means that light or sunshine won’t get in the way of you seeing the image on the screen.

As for a price comparison, Amazon actually has this incredible monitor for as high as $312.96.

Shipping is around $15 but the fee will depend on your location and shipping method (i.e., express is more expensive). Once you reach the checkout, it might be tempting to get one of the extended protection plans but neither one of these are obligatory. To skip, simply hit the green “proceed to checkout” button located at the top right-handed corner of the page. Personally, I wouldn’t pay more for a protection plan on a monitor, but to each their own! What about you Moosers? Do you always get the protection plans?

Staples Canada Printables: $25 – $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Posted by on March 24, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Staples Canada Printables: $25   $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Starting March 25th 2014, you can present a different Staples printable coupon in-stores to save up to $75 on items like camcorders, cameras, hard drives, monitors, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.

Valid for only one day each, here are the different deals you can take advantage of with the Staples coupon:

  • Tuesday, March 25th 2014: $25 off any camera or camcorder $99+
  • Wednesday, March 26th 2014: $30 off any hard drive $100+
  • Thursday, March 27th 2014: $50 off any computer monitor $149+
  • Friday, March 28th 2014: $50 off any tablet $299+
  • Saturday, March 29th 2014: $75 off any laptop or desktop computer $599+

As I’m due to give birth soon, I have been planning to add a whole bunch of feel-good movies onto a hard drive to potentially distract myself and hubby with at the hospital. Whether we’ll actually get to watch them is something I’ll have to update you moosers on later, but in the meantime that’s the plan, with the only problem being that I’m in need of a new external hard drive. So I’ll probably be using the Wednesday coupon to save $30 on the Western Digital 4TB USB 3.0 My Book external hard drive priced at $189.99. Although it’s $171.24 at both Best Buy and Future Shop, with the coupon, it comes down to just $159.99 at Staples.

In any case, there is definitely no shortage of stock to choose from; just make sure to carefully price compare with all of the other major stores first!

Dell Canada: $100 Off 21.5″ Touch Monitor – Now $250

Posted by on November 13, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Dell Canada: $100 Off 21.5 Touch Monitor   Now $250

Dell is offering $100 off this sweet 21.5 inch multi-touch desktop monitor. Regularly priced at $349.99 the monitor is now on sale for $249.99.

I have seriously dreamed of a touch desktop monitor! After I am done school I plan to migrate from a laptop over to a desktop (I have this Alienware one picked out right here) and I am going to pair it with a touch screen desktop monitor. Dell makes really good monitors and this one should be no exception. It is a full HD display with 1920 x 1080 (max) resolution.

The stand is what makes this monitor truly awesome. You can slide the display toward you and it tilts as much as 60° for comfortable touching and typing. It recognizes up to ten touch points at the same time so you can get busy with all those fingers of yours. No more peck typing! Totally a must have if you have a PC desktop these days.

It will ship for free from Dell Canada.

DisplayFusion: Manage Multiple Monitors and Save 25% to Celebrate Version 5.1! (Expired)

Posted by on September 5, 2013 at 1:00 PM

DisplayFusion: Manage Multiple Monitors and Save 25% to Celebrate Version 5.1! (Expired)

The busiest lady I know uses DisplayFusion to make her life easier and you should too. You should also save 25% because we love you very, very much.

DisplayFusion starts at $25 for a lifetime license for one computer. You get it for only $18.75. The 25% discount saves you $6.25. That’s for the Standard licence. The Personal Home (more than one computer at your home), Site (for an office) and Enterprise (for a company) licences are $26.25, $524.25 and $1949.25, respectively, after the 25% discount.

The busiest lady I know is BargainMoose’s dear dictator for live, Anna Waters. She uses this and loves it. You can see how much she likes it by reading her comments about it in a previous DisplayFusion post. Now that you’ve read that, you know everything there is to know about DisplayFusion so go buy it. Good night!

No, that’s not right! Besides all the awesome features they had in the last version, they’ve added more. Of course there were minor updates and bug fixes, but the real big new feature is the screen splitting feature. I’d explain it but the people who make it can do a better job.

The biggest new feature is the addition of Monitor Splitting. This is an incredible new feature that allows people using nVidia Surround or AMD EyeFinity to virtually split their spanned desktop into virtual monitors. Separate taskbars, wallpaper, window maximizing and more. No need to disable EyeFinity or Surround when you’re done gaming.

This is especially helpful if you’re a creative type or very busy with a lot of stuff happening on your computer all the time. You can maximize email in one part of your screen, Twitter on another and browse on another. This would actually turn a small TV into a suitable monitor.

Also, you can save money on this if you already have another program by Binary Fortress, the creators of Display Fusion. I’d suggest checking out ClipBoard Fusion. It’s especially helpful if you use, as most of us do, multiple devices/computers.

HP Canada Coupon Code: 25% Off Select Monitors with PC Purchase

HP Canada Coupon Code: 25% Off Select Monitors with PC Purchase

If you’re having trouble reading this, you need a new monitor. If you’re on BargainMoose, you’ll probably want it for 25% off when you buy a new computer!

Click here to get your new monitor @ HP.ca now

  • Coupon Code: MONITOR25
  • Discount: 25% off select monitors with PC purchase
  • Expiry: Unknown

I feel like writing about monitors is a weird thing. I think it’s just because since the year before I went to college (in… 2003? I’m old.), for the past decade or so, I’ve had a laptop. I have a server in my basement and that’s about it for desktop computers. I’ve just ordered my seventh laptop, so I’m pretty much beyond the need for a monitor.

That being said, if I was in the market, HP would not be a bad choice. The monitor on my server is a Compaq (yeah, it’s that old) branded HP monitor and it’s held up. And I don’t mean that it’s sat on a desk for a decade and still works. This thing is sitting in my unfinished basement, on the floor, surrounded by piles of stuff. I have had a plumber haul equipment out past this monitor, I had a contractor cutting tile near this monitor, I’ve kept this monitor down there in freezing cold temperatures. I can’t imagine that being smacked by plumbing equipment, layered in about an inch of ceramic dust and being frozen can be good for it. This little guy has been through the ringer and it’s still running like a champ.

This particular sale has a great range, which I always want to see in a good sale. You can go from the $99.99 entry level 20″ monitor to the $499.99 27″ why-don’t-I-just-buy-a-TV monsters. And of course, there is a monitor at all points in between to suit whatever your needs and budget are. Best part about it? You get 25% off the monitor when you purchase an HP PC with our magic coupon!

NewEgg Canada: ASUS VS Series 24″ Monitor Only $140 After Discount, Coupon & Rebate (Was $210)

NewEgg Canada: ASUS VS Series 24 Monitor Only $140 After Discount, Coupon & Rebate (Was $210)

A great new monitor and a great price from Asus and New Egg Canada!

 Click here to get your new Asus monitor @ NewEgg.ca

  • Coupon Code: CAWKLY03251
  • Discount: $20 off
  • Expiry: Unknown

So the price is kind of hard to figure out here since some of them are applied after taxes but it’s more or less $209.99 – $30 instant discount – $20 coupon code – $20 mail-in rebate. That ends up being $140! This really is a good deal for a monitor like this. I took a look around at other retailers and I found that amazon.com (who is usually cheaper than Canadian retailers) is selling it for $170. So this is $30 cheaper than the  place that usually sells stuff for cheaper than we can get in Canada. Not too shabby, eh?

I haven’t had an Asus monitor but I’ve used them fairly extensively and I like them quite a bit. My tablet was an Asus and the screen in that was good too. On top of that, the rating on NewEgg Canada is 4/5 eggs, which is great when you realize that people tend to review items they dislike more than items they like.

Shipping is free. For more NewEgg Canada coupons, click here.

This is one of the highest rated monitors on NewEgg Canada and has one of the best prices around with this coupon code!

  • Coupon Code: CEMCJHNE55
  • Discount: $50 off Asus 21.5″ Monitor
  • Expiry: Unknown

Like I said in my little intro, this is one of the highest rated items on NewEgg Canada. About 02% of it’s ratings are 4/5 or above. Overall it has over a 4.5/5. The only real complaint I read was that it is a bit wobbly on the base but a reviewer said he got a note from Asus who advised him to tighten the screw on the bottom of the base in order to stop the wobble. Problem solved!

I thought this was a great review, especially for a Apple-hating curmudgeon like me!

This monitor has a seriously good image, going from my previous iMac to this is like going from being blind to 20/20 vision.

But wait, there’s more!

NewEgg is having a great Christmas sale so even if you aren’t up for a new monitor, there are tons of other great deals!

Dell.ca: Celebrate the New Season With up to 70% off Electronics!
Fall is here. The leaves are turning to pretty colors and the air feels fresh and crisp. It’s also the HARBINGER OF DOOM TO ALL THOSE WHO HATE WINTER!! Canada is tough in winter, how about you warm up by a new TV? While you’re at it, you can light a small fire with the money you save off of these deals. (Please don’t burn money. It’s illegal and dangerous.)
Lots of stuff on sale here. these are a few of the better deals I found

I like that Dell diversifies its sales. A lot of places have a “laptop sale” or “CPU” sale, which is fine you happen to want a new laptop but sometimes you aren’t looking for that specific. item. Oftentimes they even have parallel sales across wide portions of the site. So for example three sales in one, each on high end PCs, normal PCs and TVs.

I didn’t include them in my list up there but Dell is also taking pre-orders for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The game is normally $59.99 but you save $7 with Dell. You only pay $52.99 and you can get the PS3, xBox 360 or PC version. The game looks like it’s going to be fun and it give you the option to play as Canada’s own JTF2. Bonus!

Dell Canada: Up to 30% Off Monitors

Dell Canada: Up to 30% Off Monitors

Dell Canada is hosting a pretty good sale: get up to 30% off monitors right now. I found many of the monitors discounted more than 30%, some nearly 40% actually.

Check out this Dell IN2030M 20-Inch Flat Panel Monitor with LED for only $99 (originally $159.99). That is actually around 38% savings, a pretty good deal for a Dell Monitor! There is also the Dell – ST2220L 21.5-inch Wide LED Flat Panel Monitor for $129.99 (originally $199.99) – a 35% savings in total.

So while Dell says this is an up to 30% off sale, actually the sale prices are much better than that (someone should learn their percentages)!

This is a fantastic monitor. I have two and they stand side by side on my desktop and both are connected to my computer.It gives vivid pictures and I have one Horizontal and one vertical. the vertical one is great for viewing web my pages and I can see more of the page at one time without having to scroll down. … This is the best value I have found for any 24″ monitor.

I had never thought of hooking a monitor up so it is vertical, what a cool idea!

NCIX: LG IPS231P LED Backlit LCD Monitor $199.97 (Orig. $309.99)

LG IPS231P LCD Monitor

I’m a big fan of LG products, particularly monitors—a pair of them currently adorns my desk, but NCIX is tempting me to upgrade. Until October 26, you can get the LG IPS231P 23 inch LCD Monitor for $199.97 (plus tax). This positively reviewed display normally goes for over $300.

IPS (In Plane Switch) technology allows this monitor to display more vibrant and accurate colours at wider viewing angles, making it ideal for users who do image processing work.

Plus, NCIX is including a Ground Shipping Promo for $4.99, which takes 1-2 business days to go out. For the more impatient among us, they offer expedited shipping options as well, ranging from $8.99 to $37.82. To save even more, arrange to pick up your order for free from one of their locations.

NCIX has never let me down in the past. I’ve assembled two computers now using components mostly purchased from them, and was pleased with the prices (as well as the advice) I received.

Newegg: Hanns G 19 Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ Built in Speakers $89.99 (Was $129.99)

First off this isn’t ‘just’ another monitor deal for a brand that you probably have never heard of before. There are 2 very good reasons for why this is a good deal:

  • This is a under $100 monitor ($89.99) for a 19″ widescreen LCD with free shipping
  • It has 556 reviews with on average a 5/5 rating. You heard right.

If you don’t like reading words, pay attention to the bold font. This is a pretty great deal!

Features:

  • maximum resolution of 1440×900
  • 5ms response time
  • 700:1 contrast ratio

I don’t know much about monitors, but for $90 that seems pretty good to me.
