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

Posted by on April 26, 2015 at 1:33 PM

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!

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 6:00 AM

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

Posted by on April 23, 2015 at 6:42 PM

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.

NCIX Canada: 55% Off Xbox 360 Controller & Free Shipping Exclusive Code – Now Just $27

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 3:30 PM

NCIX Canada: 55% Off Xbox 360 Controller & Free Shipping Exclusive Code   Now Just $27

Here’s a hot little gaming deal at NCIX: the Xbox 360 controller for Windows is on sale for just $26.99, which is a $33 price reduction from its original retail price of $59.99.

This has got to me one of the lowest prices we have seen for this remote, so if you have been waiting to snag yourself one because you still play Xbox 360 games or have some on your PC, then this is a fabulous opportunity. At other online stores, the Xbox 360 common controller is:

The cool part about it is that one top of using it to play Xbox 360 games, you can also use it to play PC games but keep in mind that your operating system needs to be Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. No mention is made with regards to Windows 8.

The included USB receiver will also allow you to use up to 4 wireless controllers, along with headsets. This is definitely a nifty feature, especially if you invite a couple of friends to play old school games (or new ones — whatever floats your boat!)

Out of 38 reviews, this Xbox 360 controller has scored a total rating of 4.4/5 stars with reviews like this one:

Had this now for a while and has stood up to the abuse. Great companion for Steam big Picture works out of the box.

That one is particularly noteworthy because of its mention to Steam, which is an online gaming community with loads of PC games for sale.

Other reviewers praised the long USB cable and the comfortable feel of this remote on the hands. It’s also great that there isn’t much setup involved as you can basically just plug and play.

Shipping

Shipping is at a flat rate of $8 per order but you can use our Bargainmoose exclusive NCIX coupon code MOOSE until April 19th to get free shipping. This code grants free shipping to any order over $25 but hurry as there isn’t much time left!

Brother Portable Label Marker Was $68 Now $30 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Brother Portable Label Marker Was $68 Now $30 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Here’s a sweet deal on the Brother PTD400AD Portable Label Marker over at NCIX Canada for today only. It was priced at $67.98, and just now, you can get this label maker for only $29.99.

This particular label maker does not come with free shipping as a matter of course. But what’s even sweeter is that you can also use the Bargainmoose exclusive NCIX coupon code MOOSE to score free shipping on any order of $25 or more, which this item qualifies for.

The full item title on the NCIX site is this: Brother PTD400AD 20MM Per Second 0.7IN X 13.1IN Portable Label Marker With AC Adapter. That’s a lot of info! There are no reviews or specifications shown on NCIX site, so I will have to go elsewhere to find out more about this particular item.

According to the page here on Brother.ca, this label maker has a handy graphical display which shows you the text and layout before you print. From looking at the image above, you can print out some cute labels with this tool. The machine comes with an 18mm “TZe” starter tape which you can use to start labelling all the bits and pieces in your house.

It seems that this labeller has quite a power consumption – it takes 6 AA batteries which do not come with the device. Consider adding a few sets to your order at NCIX, such as this 20 pack of Fujis (if you don’t already have rechargeables).

As for prices elsewhere in Canada, it says on the DirectCanada site that this item is $23.90… but you cannot actually buy it. Brother Portable Label Marker Was $68 Now $30 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada On Amazon.ca, the same label maker is $38+ including shipping. It’s $69 here on DirectDial and not for sale at many other stores at all. Great price from NCIX, IMO!

I’d love a labeller! However, I’d probably spend the first few days labelling everything in sight then forget I owned it at all. I do think it would be useful now, with the girls growing older and going to school. They need all of their stuff labelled… and this could be a good option instead of buying sets of labels every year from the likes of Mabel’s Labels and Emily Press.

NCIX.com: Sennheiser HD 205-II Headphones Were $99 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 17, 2015 at 7:00 PM

NCIX.com: Sennheiser HD 205 II Headphones Were $99 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

I think if myself as the headphone matchmaker. Besides my own ‘mild’ obsession with headsets, I have set up several of my friends with headsets they love. Right now, NCIX.com has discounted the Sennheiser HD 205-II Studio Grade DJ Headphones from $99 down to $39 with free shipping.

Various headsets are always going on sale, therefore I needed to price compare this exact model of Sennheiser to see if this was a good deal. I found the Sennheiser HD 205-II headset for the following prices at other online retailers.

  • $78.52 @ Amazon Canada
  • $99.99 @ The Source Canada
  • $99.99 @ Staples Canada

When the next cheapest headset is nearly double the price of NCIX.com’s deal, then you know you have found a great offer.

I am a big fan of Sennheiser, though I have yet to own the brand myself. I recommended a set to a dear friend of mine about four months ago. He was thinking of buying some Skull Candy headphones, but I successfully talked him out of those.

I pointed out that Sennheiser has a superior frequency response. This gives you a better range and, with such a range, your headset is more responsive to highs and lows. Most standard headsets come with a minimum frequency response of 20 Hz and a maximum frequency response of 20 kHz. These 205-II headphones have a frequency response of 14 Hz to 20 kHz. Even for $39, you are getting a better response range than many $100 headsets.

The headset features the studio-style rotatable ear cup so you can listen with only one ear. This is a funky design as, when the ear cup rotates, the ear pad remains in contact with your head for comfort and stability. Even if you are not a DJ… this allows you to communicate with others without taking the headset off and without experiencing any discomfort when removing the headset from one ear.

Commenters are pretty succinct in their reviews. One reviewer said:

-good sound overall
-nice and compact
-doesnt crush your head

Other reviewers thought the bass was awesome and found the quality very good for the price. One person bought these for $50 not too long ago, so I think $39 is a great deal for this set of Sennheisers. The HD 205-II comes with a protective pouch for storage and a locking 1/4″ adapter.

While this headset is in stock, it qualifies for free shipping.

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card Was $15 | Now $8 & Free Shipping *HOT*

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 3:32 PM

NCIX.com: ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card Was $15 | Now $8 & Free Shipping *HOT*

NCIX.com really has an amazing deal on this ADATA Premier Micro SDHC Class 10 16GB Memory Card with adapter. Originally $14.99, this micro SDHC 16GB memory card is on sale from $14.99 down to $7.99 with free shipping.

Now, finding this exact card for price comparing is pretty difficult. So, I just price compared with the cheapest 16GB, Class 10, microSD card I could find at other retailers. Here is a list of the prices of the cheapest cards of the same class and same size at other retailers:

  • $12.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $12.88 @ Walmart Canada
  • $11.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $10.92 @ Staples Canada

These are all the cheapest possible Class 10, 16 GB, micro SDHC cards that each of these retailers sells. None of the above four prices have free shipping so you also need to mentally calculate that on to the price. This ADATA Premier micro SDHC card from NCIX.com is the cheapest I have ever seen for the size and quality.

This card is perfect for expanding the memory on your phone or your tablet. The micro SD card features:

  • 16 GB storage
  • Maximum Write Speed of 33 MBps
  • Maximum Read Speed of 50 MBps

The card comes under the speed class rating of ‘Class 10′ or UHS-I. This may seem a bit slow, but reviewers have found that this card performs much better with 3.0 readers. One reviewer said:

It’s a excellent card, reach up to 69MB/s and 41MB/s in R / W. Measurement on USB3.0 card reader.

Another reviewer said that he got the card up to 80MB/s read speed.

Now, this is not some obscure card by a brand you have never heard of. ADATA is a common brand for cards such as these. I have actually read comments from people saying ADATA is the only brand of flash card they will purchase. Well, this particular card averages 4.2/5 with over 40 reviews at NCIX.com. One reviewer said:

Have used this card in my Nikon DSLR, Raspberry Pi B+, and now Raspberry Pi 2 running OpenElec. Has run flawlessly in every scenario. Will be ordering another one. I also own the 8GB version and it has run with the Raspberry Pi 2.

This is just a reliable and versatile card for all your memory needs. At this price, pick one up ASAP before they sell out! Free shipping only applies as long as the cards are in stock.

NCIX.com: Patriot FUEL Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh Only $7 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 12:35 PM

NCIX.com: Patriot FUEL Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh Only $7 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

** BUMP: This is the DEAL OF THE DAY at NCIX.com today – and thus has dropped down to $7 with free shipping – today only! **

NCIX.com has marked down the Patriot FUEL Active Mobile Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh With 3 Stage LED Flashlight from $24.99 to $7.99 $7 with free shipping.

This is a seriously hot deal. I have never seen one of these 2000 mAh battery chargers for so cheap. I price compared this exact unit with other sellers The Patriot FUEL rechargeable battery retails for:

  • $17.99 + $7.34 shipping @ Newegg Canada
  • $16.99 + $598 shipping @ Amazon Canada
  • $22.49 + shipping @ Tiger Direct Canada

I could not resist price comparing this unit with the Anker version (as I am a big fan of Anker). They sell a 3200 mAh model for $19.99. RavPower has a 3200 model for $17.99. However, neither device comes with free shipping. You are also paying over twice the price for just over 1.5 times the power.

This deal is only available for the Forest Green colour. All other colours are still at full price – $24.99 – so you want to pick up the green. I prefer my battery charger to be a bright colour so it is easier to find in my bag. The first green is okay in my books.

NCIX.com: Patriot FUEL Rechargeable Battery 2000 mAh Only $7 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Now, 2000 mAh may not seem like a lot of power, but it will certainly save your phone when you have miscalculated the battery life or forgot to put it on the charger. Just today, a friend of mine forgot to charge their battery overnight and they had to go to work in the morning. A small battery like this would fit in his pocket or work bag no problem. In fact, he could just keep this one at work or in the car so he always has a battery on him. I would pick up two so one can be left in the car and the other could be left at work.

This is a very hot deal and is bound to sell out quickly. Last time I posted a deal like this, we found out that out of stock items no longer qualify for free shipping. Make sure to pick this battery charger up before it goes out of stock as the free shipping really makes this deal amazing. Let me know how many you buy!

NCIX.com: Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 PC Gaming Keyboard Was $100 | Now $39 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has a one-day deal on the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 Gaming Keyboard. Originally $99.99, this keyboard is now on sale for $39 with free shipping.

It was easy to price compare this unit, even though it is not one of the mainstream computer companies. However, I often find the attention and care that goes into relatively minor companies’ products rather worth attention. I did find this keyboard at Best Buy Canada – currently priced at $99.99. I also found the keyboard – via a marketplace seller – listed on Amazon Canada for $65 + $6 shipping. At Newegg.ca, the keyboard costs $99.99 + $7.99 shipping. Lastly, Staples Canada has the keyboard for $119.99.

Simply, you are getting one heck of a deal on this keyboard when you purchase it today. Not only are you avoiding shipping charges (while the keyboard is still in stock), you are also paying substantially less than at any other retailer. I mean substantially!

This keyboard is a fantastic entry-level keyboard for gamers. They Mad Catz keyboard has precise key response, customizable backlighting, and programmable macro keys. I know backlighting is just aesthetics, but I really love a custom backlit keyboard. It is fun to customize the setting for each game that you play and customize the settings for your regular computer.

This keyboard is for PC gamers and it attaches to your computer via USB cable: it is not wireless. The keyboard comes in red with black keys and also has a removable (black) wrist rest to help prevent typing fatigue.

I checked out a review on PCmag where they keyboard garnered a 3 1/2 out of 5 star review considering the price. Their bottom line was:

The Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 gaming keyboard is flashy, but it combines a competent design with several unique features.

You can read the full review on that website. In my opinion, this looks like a cool gaming keyboard and it is priced far better than most decent entry level gaming keyboards these days. You could easily spend this much on a normal keyboard! Check out this cool video going over the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 keyboard:

They keyboard comes with a two year warranty.

Azio Blue Backlight Gaming Keyboard Was $80 | Now $23 @ NCIX.ca

Posted by on April 11, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Azio Blue Backlight Gaming Keyboard Was $80 | Now $23 @ NCIX.ca

The Azio gaming keyboard is on discount today, and you can score it at a steal. This blue backlight keyboard was $79.99, but you can grab yours for only $22.99.

The keyboard I am featuring today is a basic gaming keyboard that should work well for a beginner or occasional gamer. This keyboard is backlit with blue so you can see the keys while you are focused on your game.  There is a volume control knob on the keyboard. There is also a palm rest included that is detachable so you could adjust it or remove it all together if you choose. This keyboard has a one-year warranty included, which will back up your purchase.

Price Comparison

The only place I am finding this keyboard is Amazon.ca. You can purchase this keyboard for $41.69 with Amazon, or pay almost half of that at NCIX. This Logitech USB Gaming Keyboard @ Best Buy Canada looks to be similar, but you would pay on sale, $65.89.

Reviews

Reviews are looking good overall. I find the reviews at NCIX mostly speak about the backlight.  Here is one review at NCIX.

Solid Feel, Reads well with the room lights off. A few macro keys would not hurt. I needed a backlit keyboard, and this does the job well. The lighting can be turn on/off, but mine stays on until bedtime as it enhances the view of the keys even in the daytime. For the sale price, it is well worth it.

I might suggest looking at Amazon.ca to read the reviews if you are considering this purchase. Reviewers mention that the keyboard is not loud and is bouncy for when you are typing at fast speeds during an intense part of your game. Also mentioned is that the volume knob is not as large and bulky as it looks in the picture.

Shipping

Flat rate shipping for this item is $8.99. The good news is we can help you make this an even better deal. Over in our coupon code forums you can use our exclusive code MOOSE for free shipping on any order $25+.

You will need a filler item to top off your cart to qualify for free shipping. I recommend the Linke Dual USB Car Charger that was $12.99, but is now $4.99. This charger would have come in handy on my last road trip. Our car charger only has room for one USB port, but this one will charge two mobile devices together such as your phone or tablet.

This keyboard is a great deal for a beginning gamer or as a backup for a more advanced gamer. I do not expect that this will do the job for a heavy gamer as the primary keyboard. If you are looking for a keyboard that is a little more durable for a younger child, this might also be your deal. Sometimes it takes a while for kids to learn to be gentle. This keyboard is meant to be wailed on more than an average keyboard.

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

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 4:05 PM

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

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.

TRENDnet N300 High Power Easy-N-Range Extender Was $50 | Now $27 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 11:21 AM

TRENDnet N300 High Power Easy N Range Extender Was $50 | Now $27 & Free Shipping @ NCIX Canada

The TRENDnet N300 High Power Easy-N-Range Extender is a great deal today @ NCIX. This wireless booster was $50 but you can get your own now for $26.99.  Free shipping applies to this item.

Do you find there is a certain spot in your house that the Wi-Fi always drops out? My parents have higher ceilings and a living room that is off the back of the house. There are certain places in the living room if you try to video call or stream media the internet gets a little rocky. It is especially frustrating when I am trying to video chat with them so they can talk to my daughter. My three year old will now say “Service not available Mama” when the reconnecting logo pops up on the screen.

Fix those wi-fi trouble spots with the TRENDnet Easy N Range Extender. This plug and play device will go directly into a wall plug. Sync up this device with your router to give you more wi-fi coverage. Setup looks easy, it should only take you a few minutes to connect this with most wi-fi routers. This device also comes with a three year limited warranty. It also looks like from the pictures that the plug has several different types of adapters.

Price Comparison

Most of the other retailers have this extender for about $40 to $50. I was originally writing to tell you about the great sale on this extender at Dell Canada, but NCIX Canada has them beat!

Reviews

Reading the reviews, buyers seem happy overall with this extender. One or two people said it took longer than a minute or two to set it up, but it does not seem like they are frustrated either. A few mentioned the unit is a little bulky on the wall. Most mentioned they were pleased with the internet boost they received. Several people mentioned they were interested in buying a second one for another area of the house. One happy reviewer said:

Does the job and added some wifi coverage to another floor of the house. It’s only 2.4ghz but for the price you can’t go wrong. Took a couple WPS attempts to sync up but did eventually get paired.

I may buy this for my mom so we can video chat without interruption. While I do not expect this will improve the internet in the entire house, I would expect that it could easily help a room or two where the internet is a little wonky. Grab yours while the price is low.

NCIX.com: Microsoft All in One Media Keyboard Was $60 | Now $23 + $8 Shipping (EXPIRED)

NCIX.com has an excellent deal on the Microsoft All-in-One Wireless Media Keyboard with Multi-Touch Trackpad. originally $59.99, the keyboard is on sale for $22.99 with $7.98 ground shipping.

Even though you have to pay for shipping for a grand total of $30.97, this deal still far exceeds the price at other retailers right now. I price compared at several other online stores so you could see how good this deal is at NCIX.com.

  • $39.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $44.95 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.95 @ Walmart Canada
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada

You can easily see that NCIX.com, even with shipping, beats Amazon Canada’s price by nearly 25%. For anyone needing an all in one keyboard, this is an affordable option for Microsoft: an industry standard.

These all-in-one keyboards are becoming the standard keyboard sought out by computer users. The track pad on the right hand side mimics that of a laptop track pad – except with a larger surface area. Unlike most laptop trackpads, this pad where you can swipe, drag, zoom, and click. Essentially, it is multi-touch compatible.

The full size keys will put your fingers at ease. There are also customizable media hot keys for your favourite folders. Try linking to music, favourite movies, your browser, favourite porn site, and more. Access these sites at the touch of a button. The keyboard is made to be durable and stand up to everyday abuse.

There are many of these keyboards out there, and I have blogged about a few before. Most quality units tend to start at $50 and go up from there. These days you have to spend $20 on a regular keyboard, so getting an All-In-One keyboard for just $11 more is pretty sweet.

One reviewer said:

Bought two of them during a 50% off sale. Really worth it. I use one for my smart tv and the other for a computer hooked up to another tv.

Another reviewer mentioned that the large touch pad is nice, except that it fails to respond occasionally. This was a minor problem and he still gave the keyboard 4/5 stars with these final thoughts:

Overall, I’m quite pleased with this keyboard despite some of the quirks. I prefer it over the Logitech K400R. I would be comfortable using it every day. Plus, the texture of the plastic helps keep it clean and free of fingerprints.

When I switch over to a desktop (I have plans!), I will certainly use one of these keyboards with it.

NCIX Canada: Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

NCIX Canada: Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Was $150 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Ending today, NCIX has a super deal on the Logitech Harmony smart keyboard with harmony hub. Regularly $149, it is now on sale for $99.

At first I wondered why anyone would pay $100, let alone $150 for a keyboard, then I realized all of the capabilities this smart keyboard has. Firstly, you can use it for living room streaming to watch videos or tv on a web-connected television or a Mac computer. You can watch videos on Vevo, YouTube or Netflix using this keyboard to search out whatever it is you’d like to watch.

Love Fallon and Ferrel? Just type their names in the search to get all their latest and greatest. Your kid needs to watch Bob the Builder this very minute? Simply type in Bob’s name and see what you can find.

We actually just purchased a box and this keyboard for streaming the internet on our television. I love it! I also love not having to scroll from each letter to complete my search – I can just type it in very quickly.

Take a read through the details to find out all of the great features of this keyboard, along with the Harmony app. Or, you can take the word of four happy reviewers, who have given it a total of a 4-star rating:

Once this is up and running, you’re good to go. The remote (your phone, or the keyboard) will control WI-fi and Bluetooth devices, and the hub acts as an IR Blaster for the non-networked devices. The keyboard works really well, has a built in trackpad, and can be used on two separate devices through the USB doggles.

The pros include using your smartphone as a remote, simple to use and easy to set-up. The cons include not having a backlight, which would be great when you are watching television in the dark.

Of course I did a little shopping around, to ensure you are getting the best deal on this product. Best Buy sells this for a full $150. All of the other audio-visual stores also sold it for full price.

Shipping is free on this item as well.

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth – Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)* BUMP – a further $20 discount since this was first posted – they’re now down to only $129 with free shipping! *

NCIX Canada has a hot deal on the Simple Audio LISTEN stereo speakers with bluetooth. Originally priced as high as $499, they’re now 70% off and can be yours for just $149 $129. This includes free shipping and a 298 bonus NCIX Rewards points.

The fact that these speakers were originally priced as high as $499 is really quite impressive, although at Amazon.ca, they are currently on sale from $349.77 from an original list price of $549.99.

In any case, this is a fantastic deal, especially since shipping is included. There is no word on when this deal might expire but my guess is that it’s probably “while supplies last”.

I’m not the most savvy when it comes to speakers and so I tend to judge the quality of these from reviews. Out of 18 reviews, the Simple Audio LISTEN speakers actually have a recommendation rate of 94%. That’s really quite awesome, especially since some reviewers labels these speakers as being some of the best ones, especially for the sale price. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about them:

These are a good buy when on (huge) sale, but there are other comparable systems around the $200 mark. They sound very nice with enough bass by themselves if you’re just sitting at a desk. I use them for my TV & PS4.

According to another reviewer, these are comparable to $200 speakers on the market and yet other reviewers claim that these also stand up very nicely to BOSE ones, which are considered to be some of the very best ones that you can get (these do however come with a pretty hefty price tag as well).

If you have been looking for quality speakers but haven’t been wanting to shell out more than a couple of hundreds of dollars on them, then these ones are a hot must-buys. They offer a 40W per channel class-d amplifier, along with a fully integrated DPS and digital signal path.

The interface is also a touch-enabled one, which is definitely a handy feature to show off to guests. NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)
