NCIX.com: Roccat Kave XTD Desert Strike Gaming Headset Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 25, 2015 at 3:15 PM

NCIX.com: Roccat Kave XTD Desert Strike Gaming Headset Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com often has amazing deals and this is one of them. NCIX.com has reduced the Roccat Kave XTD Stereo Desert Strike – Military Edition Premium Stereo Gaming Headset from $89.99 down to $39.99 with free shipping.

This headset is not carried at many other online retailers. I found it at Amazon Canada for $93.50. You can also purchase it in the Amazon Marketplace for $77.95 plus $13.74 shipping. Next, I found the headset at Newegg Canada for $95.99 plus $12.85 shipping. Even Newegg.com (US) sells the headset for $69.99 USD.  I could not find the headset at Best Buy, Walmart, TigerDirect, or Staples Canada.

Now that we have established that this headset is an excellent price, here are some features.

Microphone

The detachable microphone has noise cancelling features so you are heard and not the lawnmower outside, the drying running in the background, or your dirty laundry revolting in the basket saying “wash me…”! The microphone has a 10Hz to 10KHz frequency response.

Headset

As the microphone is detachable, you can simply use this as a regular headset when you are not gaming. The headset has a semi-open back design with round ear pads (instead of oblong). While not the best frequency response at 20Hz to 20Khz, this will certainly do the job. The 23 Ohm impedance is pretty standard. The headband is padded for wearing comfortable for many hours.

Cable

The cable features a built in remote giving you control over the volume and even mute. With 8.2 feet of cable, you have quite the distance. This is pretty great if you use your headset with a console and want to sit on the couch.

While I could not find reviews for the ‘Desert strike’ version, I did look at a couple reviews for the regular edition. Reviewers seemed to agree that they liked the chunky design, that the headphones were very comfortable, and that there was good overall sound quality. However, they didn’t quite like the cable as it isn’t modular. They often said how the headset was good, but it doesn’t really excel at one thing.

At this price, I think this is most certainly a worthwhile buy. While this is a one-day deal, quantities being sold at this price are limited so you will want to purchase as soon as possible.

NCIX.com: Audio-Technica MB Studio Quality Mic Was $195 | Now $69 + Free Shipping

Posted by on June 19, 2015 at 2:05 PM

NCIX.com: Audio Technica MB Studio Quality Mic Was $195 | Now $69 + Free Shipping

In the market for a new studio quality microphone? You can shop at NCIX.com and snag this Audio-Technica MB 4K/C Cardioid Condenser Extended Resonse Studio Quality Vocal & Instrument Mic for just $69 as opposed to the regular price which was $195. This item also has free ground shipping.

Are you prepared to save $126 on a brand new introductory level studio quality microphone? This Audio-Technica MB Vocal & Instrument Mic seems to be a favourite product among many in this price range. For just $69 you can snag a great quality Midnight Blue Series microphone. This mic has a condenser design meant for studio vocal and instrument applications. It features battery or phantom operation, a rugged all-metal build, soft-touch finishing, extended response, corrosion resistant contact as well as an on & off switch.

This Audio-Technica Mic can’t be found for a better price at any other Canadian retailer. Take a look at what this microphone sells for elsewhere:

All of these Canadian retailers claim that this Audio-Technica introductory studio-quality microphone is the clear price/performance leader. It is one of the few microphones that can operate with battery OR phantom operation to ensure versatility. Reviews on the Amazon Canada website say that this microphone has great sound quality and can be used in many different situations. Personally, I am not a musician by any means. You could probably ask my dad more about this microphone than I could tell you, but I do know a good price when I see one. You can’t get a microphone with better quality for under $100 like this one. On the cons side, reviews say to be prepared for “plosives” which can be rather annoying when you are recording. To prevent those, you may want to invest in an additional wind screen or pop filter.

Not only does NCIX Canada provide a 30 day limited warranty on this product, but they have also included free shippingThe remaining of the 1 year warranty is provided by the manufacturer. So if you wanted to be impressed by this microphone, considering the price range, then snag this offer from NCIX.com while it lasts. Great prices like this are bound to sell out, perhaps even before the expiry date.

What would you Moosers use this Audio-Technica Studio Quality Mic for?

NCIX.com: Belkin Surge Protector (6 Outlets) Was $15 | Now $7 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 12, 2015 at 5:00 PM

NCIX.com: Belkin Surge Protector (6 Outlets) Was $15 | Now $7 & Free Shipping

**BUMP – These basic Belkin surge protectors are back on sale!**

I am pretty excited about this deal from NCIX.com. This basic Belkin home/office Surge Protector (555J) is on sale from $14.99 down to $6.99 with free shipping! The six-outlet surge protector is an affordable necessity to protect your electronics.

Of course, one has to price compare this unit to other retailers. My first search revealed that Belkin themselves sell this surge protector for $9.99 USD in the USA. Here in Canada, I found the six-outlet Belkin Surge protector for:

  • $9.38 @ Hookbag.ca
  • $11.30 @ MyTeknology
  • $11.99 @ PC-Canada
  • $12.82 @ Ashlin Canada
  • $17.69 @ Frontier PC

You would also have to pay for shipping on top of those prices at all of these retailers! By far, NCIX.com has the best price for this surge protector. I figured I would go a step further and try to find the cheapest surge protector at a place with free shipping and no minimum. I found an Exponent Microport 6-Outlets Surge Suppressor – 6 – 150 J for $20.78 at Shop.ca. Most surge protectors seem to be around the $20 or more mark.

This is truly a basic surge protector. The device has six-outlets with the hole for the grounding piece. Oddly enough, some surge protectors omit this basic. The Belkin surge bar has a 30″ cord. For some people this may be a bit short, but I find the long cords terribly annoying. I need a power bar to keep my electronics protecting – I do not need the unholy love child of a power bar and an extension cord! If I need an extension cord, then I would buy one.

Most people say the power bar is well worth the money. One reviewer said:

-very basic power bar/surge protector for your money
-slim and isn’t the most bulky thing around

Another person was a bit disappointed that there were not more outlets

This is a good quality surge protector. I bought 2. The 2.5 feet long cord is a bit short though. And I would have liked 7 outlets at the low price I bought it at. Free ground shipping is nice.

For $6.99 and free shipping, I think this is a fantastic deal. I could not find another surge protector for around this money. Even on Walmart Canada, which now charges shipping, the cheapest sale bar was $8.

Free shipping lasts as long as the product is in stock.

NCIX.com: ADATA 4200mAh Power Bank Was $32 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 7, 2015 at 1:00 PM

NCIX.com: ADATA 4200mAh Power Bank Was $32 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

If you still have not picked up an external battery, or you need a second unit, now is your chance. NCIX.com has discounted ADATA PV100 Power Banks (4200MAH) 5V 2.1A from $31.74 down to $14.99 with free shipping.

This is an excellent mid-sized battery. It holds over twice the power as the Patriot Fuel deal that I blogged about before, which was certainly a hot deal. I think that this battery pack deal is pretty hot too. The same battery costs $26.99 + $7.99 shipping at Newegg.ca. A secondary seller on Amazon Canada sells these for $29.32 + $6.07 shipping.

Those prices seemed a bit high, thus I decided just to compare with other power banks. RAVPower makes a 3200 mAh power bank that retails for $17.99 on Amazon Canada. Anker also makes a 3200 mAh external battery that retails for $25.99 cheapest. Both of these batteries have less storage capacity and cost more.

This ADATA power bank comes in black. It has a very slim profile (only 8mm) and is just larger than an iPhone 5, so about the same size as an iPhone 6. With 2.1A output, your devices will charge faster. If you have ever seen a power bank with two USB outputs: generally, one is 1A and the other is 2.1A. If unmarked, you can accidentally charge your phone via the slower port, which takes longer.

The PV100 power bank has four indicator lights for the power remaining in the battery. This will display when you push on the LED indicator light. The front and rest of the body is otherwise clean.

The device comes loaded with safety mechanisms including:

  • OTP – Over-Temperature Protection
  • SCP – Short Circuit Protection
  • OVP – Over-Voltage Protection
  • OCP – Overcharge Protection
  • ODP – Over-Discharge Protection
  • OCP – Over-Current Protection

All these protections keep your phone from being harmed during the charging process. As for compatibility, almost any microUSB powered mobile device can be charged via this external battery.

I give external batteries to all my friends and I highly recommend them to the friends / family I am not close enough to in order to buy gifts. However, external batteries can only do so much. If you forget to bring your external battery, then it cannot save your dying phone (a friend of mine did that last night).

NCIX.com: Silicon Power 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Only $12 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 1:00 PM

NCIX.com: Silicon Power 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Only $12 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has an excellent deal on the Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B30 USB 3.0 Swivel Flash Drive. Originally $19.99, the 32GB flash drive is now discounted to $11.99 with free shipping.

This is one of the best prices we have seen for a 32GB flash drive. Checking back in the Bargainmoose archives, I found other 32GB flash drives on sale for $14.99. I decided to price compare this specific brand, Silicon Power, and this specific model, B30, in the 32GB size with 3.0 speed.

Tiger Direct had the next closest price at $14.99 but you would also have to pay for shipping. Amazon Canada came in next at $23.34 and Canada Computers charges $24.99. Neither of these two companies have free shipping on just the flash drive either.

While there are no reviews on NCIX.com, there are on other websites. On Amazon, the flash drive has a 4.5/5 star rating with 72 reviews. I have to say, that is awesome! I also found a very detailed review on TigerDirect from a customer giving the device 5/5 stars. Here is part of the review:

I tested the read and write speeds using the black magic app on the mac app store, the speeds where very impressive for a flash drive, i was getting around 80 – 90 MBs Read and around 35 MBs write. I would like to point out that i have another memory stick from another brand and this product is around double the speed. Overall this is an excellent memory stick that really cannot be faulted for the price.

This is very good news for people who care about their read and write speeds. The faster your speeds, the faster data transfers to and from your flash drive. This little number not only looks good (love the diamond textured look), it can read up to 90 MBPS and write up to 40 MBPS.

The flash drive has the newest 3.0 speed (some flash drives still come in 2.0) and is compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. Overall, for $12 with free shipping you cannot do better, especially for a flash drive with such great ratings on Amazon Canada.

If you are looking for an inexpensive but useful gift for Father’s Day, consider picking up a 32GB flash drive for your father. Then teach him how to use it.

You only receive free shipping when this product is in stock. if it becomes ‘backordered’ then you will be charged shipping.

Adata Micro SD Cards @ NCIX Canada from $6.49 & Free Shipping!

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Adata Micro SD Cards @ NCIX Canada from $6.49 & Free Shipping!

OK, I’m going to write a boring post, about micro SD cards!! They’re not a terribly exciting topic, nowhere near as exciting as Quantum Leap or X-Men blu-rays, but Micro SD cards are still a necessity in some of our technological devices and therefore a good deal is always sought after. Just now on NCIX Canada, there are a range of Adata Micro SD cards with prices starting at only $6.49. While that sounds good in and of itself, what’s even sweeter is the free shipping on any of these items!

The deals are on these three items in particular:

Before you jump in and buy, make sure you check your device to see if these Micro SD cards are compatible. If so, they’re a great deal on a little extra portable storage, be it for your cellphones, digital cameras, media players or any other devices.

While the expiry date on this deal is the 10th of June, we’ve seen hot deals from NCIX sell out quite fast in the past, so if you’re interested in getting a micro SD card at a great price, then buy now and think later.

Have a read of the reviews on the NCIX site too, as they contain some detailed information from customers. For example, one customer states that the 16GB card did not work with their raspberry pi 2 device. Most reviews seem to agree on the fact that these little Adata SD cards are good value for money.

(67% Off!) Just $10 For PKG Stuff Universal Laptop Carry Cases @ NCIX Canada & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 26, 2015 at 3:40 PM

(67% Off!) Just $10 For PKG Stuff Universal Laptop Carry Cases @ NCIX Canada & Free ShippingQuick! Head on over to NCIX because for a limited time, you can grab a PKG Stuff universal laptop carry case for just $9.99. There are plenty to choose from, whether for a 10″, 11″, 13″, 14″, 15″ or 16″ laptop and they were originally priced up to $29.99. Shipping is also absolutely free.

Just $10 for a laptop sleeve is actually a very awesome deal. I had a look around for laptop sleeves at Best Buy and the cheapest one I found happens to be the PKG Stuff 13″ laptop sleeve in a green/black colour, which is on sale for $18.99 (reg. $19.99) — not the biggest discount, but hey, it’s a discount nonetheless! It does, however, go to prove the awesomeness of NCIX’s deal, especially when you factor in the fact that it will be shipped absolutely free.

Depending on the size of your laptop, you could also potentially get it in different colours. For a 15″/16″ laptop for instance, you could get a PKG Stuff case in: tweed grey, wooly dark heather, quilted black, or wooly light heather.

I don’t have a case for my laptop and I have to say that after writing about this deal, I’m on the verge of getting one for myself because on top of having a sleek appearance, the PKG Stuff cases also includes a large pocket that is zippered and which you can use to store smaller items like a tablet, pens, keys or perhaps even your phone if you’re carrying your laptop over to say, the nearest coffee shop to get some work done. In fact, there’s even a hidden handle for carrying purpose and you could get the PKG universal straps on sale for just $2.99 right now instead of their  usual price of $9.99. At Staples, a black version of these straps are actually $12.49.

The expiry date on this deal is ever so slightly confusing though because although it says: “save $20 off our regular price of $29.99 if you buy today”, next to it, it also says “special price ends soon”. So if you’re interested in getting a $10 laptop sleeve, then don’t wait around as you might miss this deal.

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)

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)

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.
