NCIX Canada: Sennheiser Steelseries Fnatic Was $140 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 19, 2015 at 11:00 AM

NCIX Canada: Sennheiser Steelseries Fnatic Was $140 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

*** BUMP – this deal is back at this low price! ***

Even though I told you about two Sennheiser deals recently, I’m going to give you a third because I know Moosers like to have a choice. Today at NCIX they’ve got a hot deal on the Steelseries 7H Fnatic Edition of Sennheiser headphones. This is actually a gaming headset with a microphone. Instead of paying the regular price of $139.99, you’ll spend $69.99 and score free shipping.

There are limited quantities available on this headset at this price and a limit of one per customer. The deal ends tonight, but I’m sure it will sell out before that, so don’t go around asking all your friends if this is a good deal, take my word for it.

The features of this headset include interchangeable ear cushions with noise-dampening leather or open-type cloth covered foam. You choose whichever you find the most comfortable. It has an invisible microphone, which is pretty cool and all of the prime audio features you’ll want for clear sound.

Take these along to a friend’s house, in the car or wherever you might need your gaming headset, as they disassemble easily for travel.

Price comparing, this price beats all competitor prices. Amazon sells these for $138.67. Shop.ca sells them for $139.99.

NCIX doesn’t have any reviews on site, but there were quite a few on Amazon.com.

I have tried all the top headsets from Turtlebeach, Astro and Tritton(Madcatz) and can say with out a doubt the 7H Fnatics are the real deal.

Maybe your kid has a birthday coming up soon. Maybe you want to get him/her something to reward for recent high marks on the report card. Maybe they just love gaming and you want to provide them with the right tools for their interests. Maybe you are sick of listening to the endless gunfire coming from their favourite video games and this gift is really for you. Either way, NCIX does have the best deal on these quality headphones.

NCIX Canada: Microsoft Wireless Mobile 1850 Mouse Was $25 | Now $9 + FS On $25

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 8:41 PM

NCIX Canada: Microsoft Wireless Mobile 1850 Mouse Was $25 | Now $9 + FS On $25

Tired of playing cat and mouse with your laptop touch pad? Snag this Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 1850 in red for just $8.99 before the price goes back up to $24.99. The price will go back to normal on the 18th of May, which is tomorrow. We even have an exclusive coupon code to get you free shipping when you spend $25 or more instead of getting free shipping when you spend $50 at NCIX.com.

I really do need to invest in a mouse for my laptop. It would make maneuvering through my different pages and programs so much easier and quicker. However, I have a very frugal mind (naturally). I just couldn’t picture spending more than $10 on a little plastic device. My second problem, is that I live for quality. So finding a quality mouse for under $10 has proven to be very difficult. Not anymore! Right now NCIX Canada has the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 1850 in Red for just $8.99. This spiffy little mouse was originally priced at $24.99 and has quite a few excellent features.

Other colours are available for similar prices as well, if you have a preference over red.

Take a look at the prices on this mouse at other Canadian retailers:

There is a “savings code” to get the discount on this Microsoft Wireless Mouse, but I actually found that the discount was automatically applied. Either way, the savings code is 105337-1382 to redeem your $16 discount. This code is only valid through May 18th, so snag the offer quickly. This Microsoft wireless mouse has a Plug-And-Go Nano Transceiver, so it is wireless. The optical mouse will require one AA Alkaline Battery, which is included. Microsoft designed this mouse with life-on-the-go in mind. It is compact and wireless, making travelling with this mouse quite convenient. I find myself using my computer in coffee shops and other public places, so a mouse built for travel is ideal for me. I find cords to be quite annoying, but on the other hand you don’t have to replace batteries with a USB cord mouse.

NCIX.com offers free shipping on orders over $50, but we have an exclusive coupon code to get you free shipping when you spend $25 or more. Just enter the code MOOSE at the check out process to apply this promotion. I am sure it won’t be hard to find something else to add to your cart at NCIX.com. You can see even more NCIX Canada coupon codes in our Bargainmoose forum.

NCIX Canada: Steelseries Headset Was $50 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

NCIX Canada: Steelseries Headset Was $50 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

*** BUMP – the 3HV2 is now down to only $14 & free shipping @ NCIX! ***

Still looking for a killer headset at an inexpensive price? Check out NCIX’s deal today on the Steelseries 3HV2 noise reduction headphones with retractable mic that was $49.99 and now $19.99 only $14. If you want to go one step up, they’ve got the Steelseries 5HV3 headset hi-fi headphones with retractable mic on sale too, with a regular price of $79.99 and now $49.99. So you can buy the cheaper pair for only $20 or pay the regular price for the cheaper pair for the better set. You’ll also get free express shipping on either item.

I have to be honest here – I know nothing about headphones. I remember the days of headsets like these and listening to New Kids on the Block on my walkman at recess. Then everyone was all about the teeny headphones that go inside your ears, but now this style is back, as it delivers better sound quality and I’ve got to think it is more comfortable in ways. Also, it does block out the external noise like your mom yelling at you to do your homework.

Made from all-leather, these are extra-padded so they are comfortable to wear all day. They fold up so you can take them wherever and they have a retractable microphone so you can be heard crystal clear.

What the second set has that the first doesn’t is a more “powerful and detailed audio experience”, with tournament grade audio drivers. You can dismantle these for taking them places, like to your friends to play games. They are specifically made for gaming, so you’ll hear everything in the game with clarity, like footsteps and gunfire.

Reviewers give both headsets four stars out of five. Here is a review of the first headset that you might enjoy:

NCIX Canada: Steelseries Headset Was $50 | Now $14 & Free Shipping

Of course I shopped around to ensure this was the best price on the market (and it is or I wouldn’t be telling you about it). I found the 3Hv2 at NewEgg for $39.99, at Amazon for $43.99 and at The Source for $34.99. The Steelseries 5HV3 I found at Amazon and BestBuy for $79.99, and at Frontier PC for $116.98!

NCIX.com: 80% Off iQ TV Top Shelves & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 9:00 AM

NCIX.com: 80% Off iQ TV Top Shelves & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has discounted iQ TV Top Shelves by 80% with free shipping. Pick up one, two, or all three sizes of this TV shelf during the NCIX.com sale.

There are three different sized shelves to choose from on NCIX.com’s website. Each shelf attaches to the top of your TV and is designed to hold a soundbar for surround sound systems or other paraphernalia. The discounted iQ TV shelves are as follows:

  • 30″ x 6″ – Was $99 | Now $19
  • 12″ x 10″ – $69 | Now $14
  • 12″ x 6″ – $49 | Now $9

These are the lowest prices I have seen for these shelves, and I conducted ample research. I looked at four different companies that have these products. The first two companies were the same – so I just listed that price point once. Here are three different retailer’s prices for these shelves.

London Drugs: (no shipping)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $99.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $69.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $49.99

Visions Electronics (free shipping)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $79.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $59.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $39.99

Memory Express (shipping is extra approx. $8.99)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $29.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $19.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $14.99

While Memory Express comes close, you would have to pay shipping on top of those shelf prices, which really makes their price far less appealing than the prices at NCIX.com.

The three different sized TV shelves will accommodate speakers or soundbars of various sizes. Purchase the one that is closest to the shape and dimensions of your own soundbar. Alternatively, one of these would actually work really well for movies. With a bookend on each end, you could place your Blu-Rays and DVDs in between – on display. The 30″ x 6″ might be a good shelf for this use.

One reviewer said:

Perfect for locating something relatively small like the non console style cable boxes on top of your LCD TV. Especially handy for wall mounted TVs that are intended to swivel for viewing from different room locations.

He also mentioned that the stand does not actually clamp to your TV. This could be both a negative and a positive. As the stand does not clamp down, it will not mark up your television. However, the stand is not quite as stable as a stand that does clamp.

I am very pleased with this deal as the discount is substantial and free shipping is an amazing benefit because these shelves can be a bit heavy (up to 3 lbs).

Sony Active Sports Headphones Were $24 | Now $12 & Free Shipping @ NCIX (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 11, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Sony Active Sports Headphones Were $24 | Now $12 & Free Shipping @ NCIX (EXPIRED)

If you are looking for a basic pair of sport style headphones, then look no further than NCIX.com. Currently, they have discounted the Sony (MDRAS200W) Active Sports Headphones in white from $24 down to $12 with free shipping.

A simple and inexpensive set of headphones can go a long way. While I love big expensive headsets, sometimes they are just not financially feasible or really that necessary. Unless you are a real audiophile living off music for hours upon hours per day – you are simply not going to appreciate the extra quality that more expensive earbuds provide. If you do notice a quality difference, it still may not be worth the extra money for that little bit of difference you found.

Price Comparison:

The Sony Active Sports Headphones cost $24.99 @ Best Buy Canada, $19.99 @ Sony Store Canada and $21.99 + $3.99 shipping @ Newegg Canada. They are not sold from Amazon Canada directly, but marketplace sellers currently have them at $19.99 + shipping. None of these places offers free shipping at a low enough minimum that these Sony earbuds would ship free – except NCIX.com.

My partner likes to go for walks and runs with his small iPod Nano. He does not want the bulk of a headset, yet the earbuds can be a bit annoying to keep in your ears while running. A set of sport style earbuds is the answer to this problem. They have a piece that hooks over the ear to keep the earbuds steady and in your ears.

These actually have a good frequency response:

  • Maximum Frequency Response: 22 kHz
  • Minimum Frequency Response: 17 Hz

Many headset brands still give 20Hz – 20 kHz responses. These sports earbuds will give you a good range.

One reviewer on Newegg.com (where they are $17.06 US) said:

Pros: nice fit. won’t fall out of ears. great sound!
Cons: none
Other Thoughts: BEST sounding sports style earbuds I’ve ever heard. A+ sound. great bass for the size.

Reviews on Sony Store are very mixed. Many reviewers are complaining because the earbuds are not waterproof. Essentially, if you have sweat pouring into your ears then you might have some issues. Of course moisture buildup is going to interfere with the sound in something that is not waterproof! Honestly though, this is a simple fix: wear a sweatband.

NCIX.com: Logitech Harmony 350 Remote Was $49 | Now $34 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 10, 2015 at 12:00 PM

NCIX.com: Logitech Harmony 350 Remote Was $49 | Now $34 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

NCIX.com’s deal of the day is rather sweet. The popular Logitech Harmony 350 Remote Control is on sale from $49 down to $34 with free shipping.

Here is a price comparison to put your little deal hunting minds to rest. The Logitech Harmony 350 retails for:

  • $49.98 @ Walmart Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ Logitech Canada
  • $49.99 @ Crutchfield Canada

The controller is out of stock at Newegg Canada and Tiger Direct does not sell the model. I checked out Amazon Canada but Amazon itself does not sell the remote control. Rather, you can find it for $52.99 plus shipping in the Amazon Marketplace.

This deal is available for today only. The remote qualifies for free shipping but that will be negated should they go out of stock. In that case, try using our exclusive NCIX coupon code for free shipping on $25 or more. That should fix the problem should this deal become back-ordered.

This device is the couch potato’s ultimate companion. Through the Logitech Harmony remote control, you can combine and control up to eight remotes into one unit: the Logitech Harmony. This means you can control your TV, cable or satellite box, DVR, Blu-Ray player, sound system, and more all from one controller.

The Logitech Harmony 350 Remote Control is one incredible unit. It is compatible with around 270,000 devices including these popular electronics:

  • Xbox One
  • Sony Playstation 3
  • Apple Macbook Air

It is very simple to determine if the Harmony is compatible with your devices. Simply use this compatibility search here to input the manufacturer and model number or product name of your device. I searched for the PS4 and it is not supported by the Harmony. That does not really bother me because the PS3 is supported.

I bought a PS3 remote control a few years ago because I am more adept at a remote control than I am at the controllers. Back when I purchased one, they were hard to find under $20. Now they retail around $15. An Xbox One remote will cost you $24.99 alone. However, the Harmony can control all these devices without having a plethora of remotes lying around. One reviewer said:

great no nonsense remote control.works very well and easy to program

Another reviewer wanted to remind people that this is an entry level remote and it lacks a few of the bells and whistles he would like.

NCIX.com: Steelseries WoW Wireless Gaming Mouse Was $129 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 6, 2015 at 1:30 PM

NCIX.com: Steelseries WoW Wireless Gaming Mouse Was $129 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

NCIX.com has discounted the Steelseries World of Warcraft Wireless MMO Gaming Mouse from $129 down to $39 with free shipping.

This is the lowest price I have ever seen on this mouse yet. The last time this mouse was on sale, it was $11 more, priced at $50.

I love gaming mice because they have a faster and more accurate response time. You do not need to be a gamer in order to purchase this mouse. If you spend a lot of time on computers (like I do), then you will appreciate the fast response time. This is also a full sized mouse so it is much better for long computing times. If you work from home on your laptop or do a lot of gaming, this mouse will feel nice in your hand.

The mouse uses 2.4GHz wireless technology for excellent response time. Unlike other mice that use disposable batteries that you replace, the Steelseries World of Warcraft uses a recharging stand to charge the mouse itself. Both the mouse and the recharging stand are gorgeous – World of Warcraft really knows how to make beautiful tech.

The mouse has 8200 dpi for excellent response time. For example, the mouse I currently have (Anker) has three dpi levels: 1000 / 1500 / 2000. The 2000 dpi is by far the best response time so I keep the mouse on that setting always. I would love to have a 8200 dpi mouse.

I price compared this mouse with other retailers. Newegg Canada has the mouse for $57.99 plus $12.06 shipping = $70.05 total. Staples Canada has the mouse on sale for $67.49. Amazon Canada sells the same mouse for 85.99 right now. While best Buy Canada does not have the same mouse, they have the wired option (in brown) for $89.99. For your information, the wireless mouse has the option of going both wired and wireless.

The natural free shipping will only last as long as this mouse is currently in stock. If it should go out of stock and yet still be available at this price, then use our exclusive NCIX coupon code for free shipping.

I am trying to spend less money this month, but I think this mouse will be mine. It is aesthetically pleasing, has an amazing dpi, and a charging station – ultra cool.

This deal is for today only.

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC Memory Card Was $20 | Now $12 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 3, 2015 at 2:00 PM

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC Memory Card Was $20 | Now $12 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has discounted the ADATA 32GB Premier UHS-1 CL10 Micro SDHC With Adapter from $19.99 down to $11.99 with free shipping.

I tend to watch for deals like these as many electronics in my household use expandable memory cards. My partner’s Dell Tablet uses expandable memory cards and I think his Samsung Galaxy does as well (not sure on that). The tablet uses microSD cards, as they are small enough to fit into the side of the tablet.

I use SDHC cards for my Sony DSLR camera. The camera needs a full SD card so I am glad that this memory card comes with the appropriate adapter. This adapter is also quite useful for downloading photos and uploading data onto the card. Many computers come with SD card readers that you would need the adapter to use.

There are a couple other deals on different size microSD cards that I wanted to mention. The ADATA 16GB memory card is on sale from $14.99 down to $7.99. Also, if you need a larger card, the ADATA 64GB microSDHC card is on sale from $44.99 down to $29.99. Per GB, the 32GB card is the best deal as you can see from this comparison:

  • 16 GB card: 50¢ per GB
  • 32 GB card: 37¢ per GB
  • 64 GB card: 47¢ per GB

The 32GB microSD card is certainly your best choice. All of these microSD cards are class 10.

Now, I could not price compare this exact model but I did price compare similar microSD cards at the same size. Walmart Canada sells a RetailPlus 32GB Class 10 MicroSD Card for $22.88. Best Buy Canada’s cheapest 32GB class 10 appears to be the Centon Micro 32GB for $18.98. Amazon Canada’s absolute cheapest 32GB microSD card is this no name card by BlingBlingStore on sale for $14.85.
Even comparing the ADATA microSD card to the cheapest cards of the same size – 32GB – and the same quality – Class 10 – this is the cheapest I could find one of these cards. As the card also comes with free shipping, unlike some of the competitors, you score an even better deal. You may wish to grab a couple of these in the rare case that one corrupts. I do believe ADATA offers lifetime warranties on their products.

NCIX.com: 78% Off Linksys RE1000 Wireless N Range Extender – Now Just $17 & Free Shipping!

Posted by on May 3, 2015 at 9:15 AM

NCIX.com: 78% Off Linksys RE1000 Wireless N Range Extender   Now Just $17 & Free Shipping!

Internet is a rather fickle thing isn’t it? One minute it’s there and the next, poof, it’s gone and only because you stepped away into the other room. Avoid all this trouble by getting the Linksys RE1000 wireless N range extender. Originally priced at $75.98, it’s now just $16.99 – that’s 78% off!! Shipping is absolutely free as well.

A week ago, I purchased the D-Link wireless range extender at Best Buy because although my wi-fi signal is strong throughout my living room, bedrooms and bathroom, it’s absolutely crappy in the kitchen. That’s actually quite inconvenient because in the middle of cooking or baking, when I’m unsure of a recipe detail, I need to walk over to the hallway to look it up.

Unfortunetly, the D-Link just won’t work for me. Upon first buying it, I couldn’t get it to work at all and last night, I managed to get it to work in the living room. My router is in the living room though, so it’s actually quite pointless for me to have it there and it won’t work anywhere further away. Quite a hassle as you can imagine!

So the Linksys RE1000 wireless N range extender is actually a very tempting option because it’s significantly cheaper. Even Amazon.ca is currently selling it for its full price of $75.98!

The way a range extender basically works is that you plug it into a wall socket at a spot further away from your router in order to boost the signal throughout your whole house. Typically, this should work to either extend it to a further point in your home as well as reach either down or up if your home has multiple floors.

There is no mention as to the amount of meters that the Linksys RE1000 wireless N range extender promises to extend your range by but it does make a mention of having two internal MIMO antennas for extending the coverage “into hard-to-reach areas”.

Ou tof 15 customer reviews, this range extender actually a 4.2/5 stars with reviews like this one:

I ordered one of these a year ago and was really pleased with how simple it was to set up. It works well. I just purchased another one to fill out the wi-fi range in my house even more.

It boasts 2.4 GHz and a 10/100 ethernet port.

NCIX.com: LG 55IN 120Hz Smart TV Was $1600 | Now $899 & Free Shipping *HOT*

Posted by on May 1, 2015 at 1:00 PM

NCIX.com: LG 55IN 120Hz Smart TV Was $1600 | Now $899 & Free Shipping *HOT*

NCIX.com has a killer deal on the LG (55LB6300) 55″ 1080p 120Hz IPS Smart WiFi LED TV with magic remote. Originally $1,599, this television is now on sale for $899! This television also qualifies for free ground shipping, which probably saves you around another $50.

As with all electronics, I thoroughly price compared this unit. In the end, I was very pleased with the price at NCIX.com as no other company even came close!

  • $1399.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $1453.06 @ Amazon Canada
  • $1279.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $1449.99 @ Costco Canada
  • $1399.99 @ Newegg Canada (refurbished)

Yup! I could not find another one of these televisions below $1000, let alone at the $899 mark. NCIX.com has really outdone themselves with this deal.

NCIX.com does not have any reviews for this television yet, so I borrowed one off of Best Buy Canada. This reviewer positively raved about all the features this smart TV has to offer.

This TV has gone above and beyond my expectations. I used to be Sony or Samsung only, but after reading many consumer reports and hearing the goods from friends who bought lg, I decided to take the plunge. What an amazing company. Technology is top notch. The magic remote is really cool. Pairing devices is easy. It connects to the internet with ease, and most importantly, the picture is unreal!

This is just part of his review; the rest is just as positive. The TV is thin and lightweight so you can move it and set it up by yourself if necessary.

I am not too familiar with television technology – I just have not stayed caught up on all the new developments. However, I do know that SMART Televisions are the future of TVs. They allow you easily to access content from the web without needing any additional devices. Watch Netflix, YouTube, and more directly from your television. The TV features built-in WiFi with smart share.

This TV comes with everything you need and more. The 120Hz refresh rate gives you crisp clean viewing and the 55″ LED screen will show off your HD movies in true splendour. There are three HDMI ports and three USB media ports as well.

Given the huge price drop for this television and the free shipping – I highly recommend this deal! It is one of the best deals I have seen on a television of this size for a while.

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX.ca

Posted by on April 30, 2015 at 9:13 AM

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping @ NCIX.ca

Gamers should check out this awesome deal at NCIX.ca. Right now, you can grab the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard that was $149.99 for only $99.99. Free shipping is included for this item only, sweetening the deal.

When you are into the game, a regular keyboard just does not hold up to the beating you are going to give it. This Logitech G710+ Mechanical Keyboard is built to keep up with you so all you have to worry about is defeating the enemy and victory. While I am not a serious gamer, I have played enough to break a few keys on my keyboard before. It is utterly frustrating when you are in the moment and about to defeat the villain when your keyboard gets stuck. This keyboard can keep you back in the game.

This mechanical keyboard also comes with some extra features that are handy. This keyboard comes with six programmable G keys, which allow for a total of 18 functions you can have available in your game quickly and easily. Despite being mechanical, the keys make a minimum amount of noise on this keyboard and the reviews seem to reflect that also. Sometimes these keyboards say they are quiet, but when you actually start wailing on them, they are suddenly loud and distracting. This also has four backlight brightness settings, perfect for being able to see the keys without distraction. This keyboard also comes with a three-year limited hardware warranty and a detachable palm rest.

Price Comparison

I did quite a bit of snooping on this deal, and this price is the lowest price we ever see on this mechanical keyboard. Check out some of the prices I found bellow.

Reviews

One thing I noticed right away is that everywhere around the web the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has solid reviews. A few reviewers have noted that the keys can develop hairline fractures over time. I feel like almost any gaming keyboard can eventually develop that issue. Reviews on multiple websites noted that friends recommended this specific keyboard, both for price and functionality. Here is one reviewer who seems happy with the purchase.

I think I’ve found the keyboard I will be using for the next few years. I’ve tried one other mechanical keyboard before this and felt it was too noisy while typing and it had the same switches as this one does. It also comes with a USB pass-through port for connecting your mouse. It also has just the right selection of other functionality to suit my needs.

Do not wait any longer Bargainmoosers! Grab yours before this sale is over.

NCIX.com: ADATA 64GB 3.0 Flash Drive Only $22 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 27, 2015 at 3:14 PM

NCIX.com: ADATA 64GB 3.0 Flash Drive Only $22 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com had discounted the ADATA C103 64GB USB 3 flash drive from $29.99 down to $21.99 with free shipping. If you just need an inexpensive 3.0 USB drive with plenty of storage, then this ADATA is the perfect drive for you.

This flash drive offers 90MB/S read speed and 40MB/S write speed. It is a 3.0, which is generally back compatible with 2.0 USB ports. 3.0 is faster overall, thus I suggest plugging this USB stick into your computer’s 3.0 port. Most computers (these days) come with two 2.0 ports and one 3.0 port. The 3.0 port is better for backing up your computer and exporting data.

I price compared this exact drive with a few other stores. Canada Computers sells the ADATA C103 64GB flash drive for $34.99 plus shipping. Best Direct Canada sells this drive for $29.99 plus shipping. Newegg Canada is completely out of stock (and does not name a price). The 8GB version costs $18.67 on Amazon Canada.

Now, reviews are polar opposites – and there are only two of them – so they are not much use. Newegg had one positive review (5/5) and other sites do not seem to have many reviews for this device at all. I do know that this is a very cheap price for a 64GB flash drive. The last 64GB flash drive I posted was $24.99 plus shipping. With this deal, you save an extra couple of dollars and receive free shipping.

If you are like me, then you cannot fathom needing 64GB worth of space. What am I going to do, transfer 1k pictures to the device? At most, I would transfer a couple hundred. For a smaller flash drive at a great price purchase the ADATA 32GB USB 3 Flash Drive that is on sale from $19.99 down to $11.99 with free shipping. This little flash drive (well, 32GB is hardly little) has plenty of great reviews including this one:

Nice 3.0 usb with 3.0 speeds. I really like what adata provides with there usb drives; lifetime warranty, special software, speed. It even has a key chain loop on it. It also doesn’t feel like a cheap product. Would buy again if I needed more

According to reviewers, your flash drive will qualify for ADATA’s lifetime warranty if you register the drive with them. That sounds like a superb benefit and is certainly worth doing.

NCIX.com: Sinclair Audio Active Bluetooth Speakers Were $349 | Now $89 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com: Sinclair Audio Active Bluetooth Speakers Were $349 | Now $89 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has discounted the Sinclair Audio WBT30BK 3″ Active Bluetooth Speakers from $349 down to $89 with free shipping. I am not sure if the original price is inflated, but this kind of speaker system usually retails around $200 so I figure this is a good deal.

These speakers have multiple inputs so you can connect anything from brand new devices to the old stereo system that you dug out of your grandparent’s attic. Connections include line in audio, optical in audio, and Bluetooth audio as well. You can connect your iPod, TV, computer. There is no need for a separate amplifier; you have full control over the speakers via the small included remote control.

There are not a lot of reviews, but the ones there are quite positive. Most people bought them on sale for around this price (slightly higher) and highly recommend doing so as well. One reviewer said:

Using these as my computer speakers and the Sound quality is excellent! You can hear every little nuance and the 3″ subs surprisingly produce great lows.

Another reviewer commented on the quality for the price he paid:

Worth every bit $100 I paid and I would venture to say I would buy them again at $200. Great product by a Canadian company.

I am curious if you can have all your devices connected at once without having to disconnect them. You could have your smart phone connect via Bluetooth, your computer connected via audio in, and the TV connected via optical in. I wonder if you could keep all three devices attached and it would just play whichever one you have on at the time. If you get a set, then let me know.

The only negative I possibly see is that the speakers lack controls built into them. If you just happen to lose the remote control, then you cannot adjust the speakers. Resolution: do not lose the remote control.

Given the reviews and the sale price, I consider this a rather nice little deal. Free shipping is valid as long as this speaker system is in stock. If it does go out of stock, you may want to try our exclusive NCIX.com coupon for free shipping. It could work on out of stock items, I do not know.

Note: If these speakers are showing as $99, try refreshing your link.

Steelseries Siberia V2 Gaming Headset (Recert) Was $99 Now $29 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada!

Steelseries Siberia V2 Gaming Headset (Recert) Was $99 Now $29 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada!

This weekend, NCIX Canada has a pretty sweet deal on a gaming headset, the Steelseries Siberia V2, in black, with a microphone attachment. This is a recertified version of the product which was $99, and you can pick it up at a $70 discount – making it only $29 just now. Plus, you also get free shipping which serves to make the deal even sweeter!

There are limited quantities of this gaming headset available, it may sell out at any time. I’ve seen this happen with some of the low priced doorcrasher type deals on NCIX Canada. I’d say that if you are interested, buy now and think later, as it is such a low price anyway.

Warranty

Steelseries is a very good name when it comes to gaming headsets. As far as I can gather from the product page, even though this is a recertified item, it still comes with a full one year warranty from the manufacturer (the first 30 days of that are through NCIX themselves).

Price Comparison

Elsewhere online in Canada, many places are selling the brand new version of the Steelseries Siberia V2 headset, albeit in various colour combinations. The cheapest alternative I can see comes from The Big Box Outlet Store which is selling this headset for $66 including shipping (but they only have one left in stock). Most other stores are selling the Steelseries headset for around $90 (Newegg) to $100 (Amazon).

Reviews

There are no reviews of this item on NCIX but you can hit up the likes of Amazon.ca to find out a bit more about what people think of the gaming headset. There, it has achieved a rating of 4.8/5 stars, with most people extremely happy with the purchase.

Contest

While you are there, why not enter in the 19th anniversary sweepstakes on NCIX here. They’re giving away more than $10k in prizes! The NCIX PC ultimate gaming setup worth more than $2k would look nice on my computer desk.

NCIX.com: Rock Candy Xbox One Controller Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com: Rock Candy Xbox One Controller Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Are you on the hunt for a new Xbox Controller without spending too much money? Pick up a Rock Candy Xbox One Controller that is on sale from $44.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping.

I price compared the Rock Candy controllers at other online retailers. Surprisingly, they are hard to find. I found a blue one at Amazon Canada for $44.95 and I found all the orange, red, and blue at Best buy Canada for $44.99. Newegg Canada has the red, green, and blue controllers for $47.99 but shipping is an extra $9.99.

Price comparing showed me that this is a great price. I even found this device in the USA for more before currency exchange. Toys R Us has the controller for $39.99 USD and Amazon.com has the controller for $29.99 USD for two of the colours.

While price comparing, I ran into more of these controllers for the Xbox 360 – you might run into them if you are looking. Even for this older console, the cheapest Rock Candy controllers I could find were still $24.99.

At NCIX.com, you can choose between the green, red, or blue controllers. The controllers have clear polycarbonate casing so you can see through and into the main brain of the controller. The cases pop and the colours are bright – they remind me of rock candy. The brilliant white accents really set off the white colours. These are officially licensed controllers for your affordable gaming needs.

I actually like these controllers much better than the standard Xbox One controller and far better than the PS3 controllers I own. They are so ugly I actually bought Gelskins to spruce them up a bit.

These are a wired controller, which is the only downside that I can see. I prefer wireless, but there is a certain dependability that comes with wired. I just like the wireless controllers for their range. I can be on the couch across the room and playing. However, I do tend to move closer to the screen when I am gaming.

With free shipping on top of the $15 off, I am pretty happy with this deal. The controllers are gorgeous, officially licensed, and a great price.
