Newegg Canada: Panda Portable Countertop Washing Machine Now $100 + Free Shipping

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Panda Portable Countertop Washing Machine Now $100 + Free Shipping

Newegg Canada has some cool things once in a while, but this one takes the cake in my books of functionality and form. Pick up a brand new Panda Portable Mini Compact Countertop Washing Machine Washer for just $99.99 (was $139.99) with free shipping to most urban sprawls around Canada.

I did a little price comparing and I say a little because this unit is not widely available. I found it for $119.99 + $15 shipping from Panda through Amazon.ca. I also found this unit sold on eBay for $89.99 US + $25US shipping = $114.99US, which translates across to approximately $126 CAN with the current exchange rate. More than 1,111 units have sold on eBay so let us just say that this little machine is popular! However, Newegg Canada certainly has the best price.

This is a mini washing machine. It can handle 5.5 lbs of clothing. Just plug it in, fill with laundry, add soap and water, close the lid, and set your timer. There is no spin dry cycle, but ringing clothes out by hand never hurt anyone. Your mini washer will also need access to drainage for the ‘drain hose’ so a bathtub, sink, or patch of grass (use natural soap please) is necessary.

Here is a review I thought would give you some additional insight:

I tried my compact washer today. It was perfect! I found it’s easier to put it in the bathtub, because it has a handle on a back & it can be tilted to fill it with water from bathtub tap. So I didn’t use the hose. Rinsing was easy: tilt using a handle, fill it with clean water, 3 min rinse, drain, repeat. It was a bit more noisy when I put it in the bathtub & when I poured more water. Nothing excessive though. Clothes came fresh, clean & surprisingly soft (even without fabric softener.) Only regret I had:”Why didn’t I buy this washer long time ago!

This is an alternative to shoveling coins in a laundry mat and sitting atop the washing machine (generally frowned upon) while waiting for your clothes to be washed. This little washing machine may only take mini loads, but over time, it will save you a bundle of not just money but time. I wish I had known about this when I was single and lived on my own… every load of laundry cost me $4 in my building. I would have much rather bought a mini washer and hung my clothes to dry. At least then I would have something to show for my money. This fantastic little washer is also great for dorms, traveling, and camping (if you have electricity).

Try Newegg Canada Premier Free For 30-Days (Reg. $60)

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Try Newegg Canada Premier Free For 30 Days (Reg. $60)

For a limited time, you can try Newegg Premier free for 30 days. This feature is usually $59.99 per year, so for any of you that are frequent customers of Newegg, this is definitely one freebie that you’re going to want to take advantage of ASAP as you never know when it might expire.

There are 6 benefits to subscribing to Newegg Premier:

  • Free ground shipping & returns
  • Dedicated customer service
  • Special deals
  • Special alerts
  • No restocking fee

Just the free shipping offer alone is enough to make me want to not only try Newegg Premier for free but also to subscribe for a year. There have been countless times that certain shipping fees have deterred me from buying something and it would be great if I didn’t even have to think about whether paying those fees is worth it or not!

Even if you don’t plan on subscribing to the yearly membership after your free trial is up, this is still a tremendously great freebie to take advantage of, especially if you have been eyeing a particular item or two… or three Try Newegg Canada Premier Free For 30 Days (Reg. $60) ! In fact, Newegg’s Back To School Sale is now on and there are plenty items to save on with up to 80% off. I spotted the Razer Naga mmo gaming mouse on sale for $59.99 (reg. $74.99). I have actually been a Razer fan for years now with my first being the DeathAdder and my current one being the Razer Naga. Sadly, I had to get a new one after my kitten chewed the DeathAdder’s wire, but that’s a whole ‘nother story! In any case, Razer mice are absolutely amazing as they are durable, are extremely precise and for all of you gamers out there, also offers the best responsiveness.

Just make sure to cancel your membership before the 30 days are up, otherwise it will automatically switch to the paid service. Even at $59.99 per year, it’s well worth it as it comes down to just $5 per month. It’s definitely a small price to pay for all of the perks, especially the ones concerning deals. Hot deals sell out fast, but with Newegg Premier, you will be alerted of the best deals before anyone else and will even be offered special deals that average customers wouldn’t be privy to.

Moosers, what do you think of Newegg Premier? Will you be trying it out for free?

Newegg Canada: Combat Creatures Battling Spider Robot – Now $50

Posted by on August 29, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Combat Creatures Battling Spider Robot   Now $50I found a funky toy during the Newegg Canada Labour Day sale. This Combat Creatures Attacknid Stealth Stryder Battling Spider Toy Robot with App-Controlled Battle Brain and Dart Blaster is on sale for just $49.96, down from the original retail price of $199.99. Best of all, the toy spider robot comes with free shipping.

I price compared this toy with a few other places to make sure that you were getting the best deal from Newegg Canada. The Combat Creatures Attacknid Spider Toy Robot is $74.99 at Amazon Canada and $89.99 at Shop.ca. Newegg beats the nearest competitor by $25, so I consider this deal pretty good.

So what IS this thing? Well, it is a robot in the shape of a spider with sex legs and a dart gun mounted on the top for battling your friends or scaring your cat. You control both the robot and the dart blaster via an app you install on your smartphone. The app communicates with the robot via Bluetooth. The app can be downloaded for free on iOS 4.3 and Android 4.0 or later devices.

This robot is so cool it hurts! The head rotates a full 360 degrees, so you can never be caught from behind without being able to rotate around to face your opponent. The dart blaster can fire 12 darts up to 35 feet. However, take three darts directly in the battle brain and you are disabled! The darts can also blast combat armour off the legs with direct hits, and other cool stuff. This is certainly a toy that you want two or more of in your house for ultimate duels.

I checked out the reviews on Amazon Canada, and this one caught my eye as being a fair assessment:

There are a few mechanical things to work out. The armoring can be finicky and you need to be careful when replacing the cylinder. Also putting the stickers on was more hassle than fun. A little more practice and the mischief is legendary. It scares the crap out of my cats but all in good fun.

I think my cat would be quite entertained; maybe a little annoyed but certainly get a lot of exercise with this robot in the house. I would have to be careful with the ammunition though as Mr. Ghost would try to eat it.

This toy looks like a lot of fun; let me know if you pick one up!

NewEgg Canada Promo Code: 23″ Monitor Now Only $144.99 (Expired)

Posted by on August 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM

NewEgg Canada Promo Code: 23 Monitor Now Only $144.99 (Expired)

A touchscreen monitor to join your Windows 8.1-equipped desktop system? Yes, please! On top of Newegg’s already great deal for this 23” touchscreen monitor that slashes 43% off of the regular price to $199.99, you can use the coupon code to save another $55! With this useful coupon code, you can get this 23” touchscreen monitor for only $144.99.While Newegg is promoting another coupon code on their site, that will only help you save $50, compared to the $55 that you can save with the one we are giving you. This is why we like to look out for our fellow Bargainmoosers!

Click here to check out this deal @ Newegg.ca now

  • Coupon Code: TOUCHEXTRA
  • Discount: $55 off
  • Expiry: 26th August 2014

The Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor with built-in speakers  normally costs $349.99 on Newegg, while it rings in at $219.99 at Canada Computers, and costs $224.47 at Ashlin Technology Solutions. Though you’ll have to input your postal code to find out how much shipping will cost you for this deal at Newegg, it typically ends up being $9.99 for ground shipping to a Canadian address.

When I first checked out a touchscreen monitor at a retail location several months ago, I was blown away. I didn’t think it would captivate me very much, since most smartphones on the market at this time have touchscreen capabilities. However, you don’t know just how handy a touchscreen interface on a desktop computer can be, until you use one that’s equipped with Windows 8.1. Everyday tasks become that much easier to accomplish, and it certainly attracts attention! At least that was the case when I found myself playing Fruit Ninja on a touchscreen monitor at a retail location, and a small crowd gathered behind me (most likely shaking their head at my now-rusty video game skills).

Here’s what some Newegg customers had to say about the Hanns-G HT231DPBU Black 23″ Touchscreen Monitor:

Pros: Great size. I ordered 2 because of the price and I wanted 2 monitors. I got them and was almost shocked by how big they were. like they were seriously BIG! still very thin however, which I really like. very responsive, great picture. True 1080p is hard to complain about.

Cons: Why is there still D-SUB or VGA on anything? add an HDMI to this thing. On the side by the display inputs it says HDMI optional, but no port. PUT ONE IN AND GET RID OF D-SUB!!! Stand is a little flimsy, but it doesn’t raise any concerns over stability.

Other Thoughts: DVI input solves some of the issues for the display inputs.

NewEgg Canada: Compact Refrigerator Only $70 (Expired)

Posted by on August 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM

NewEgg Canada: Compact Refrigerator Only $70 (Expired)

If you’re looking for a convenient way to keep your food and drinks chilled, this compact refrigerator can certainly help accommodate your needs! Now that we’re still enjoying the summer season, this 1.7 cu. ft. compact fridge can be especially handy during some of these humid days. Today’s deal from Newegg.ca allows you to save $80 off of the regular price of this Midea MRS180B 1.7 cu ft. Compact Refrigerator, and today you can get it for only $69.99- a 53% savings!

The Midea compact refrigerator is black, sleek, and  small enough to fit in many areas (its dimensions are 19.4h x 18.6w x 17.7 d.) At Newegg.ca, you can get it shipped to you for only $9.99!

If you’re looking for an efficient fridge that can easily fit on your desktop, in your garage, in your office, or even in your basement, then this is the perfect solution for you!

Better yet, just imagine this scenario: You suddenly wake up at 3 A.M., and you’re incredibly hot and thirsty. After convincing yourself that you’ll get back to sleep after having some water, you unfortunately realize that you just don’t have the energy to go down the stairs and into the kitchen to pour yourself a glass of H20. If you had this Midea compact refrigerator conveniently placed in your room, this scenario wouldn’t even be an issue for you- after all, you’d be able to simply take a few steps in your room to enjoy a nice, chilled drink in the middle of the night.

Personally, I know I love having a fridge in my bedroom, and I know you all would, too- especially since it’s so compact. The Midea compact refrigerator hums along nice and quietly, since it’s energy-efficient. It can also be a great addition to any college dorm!

At only $70, this is especially a great deal when comparing the price to other sources like Amazon.com, with the price range for this model fluctuating from $113.84 (plus $47.29 shipping) to $145.95 (with free shipping). I couldn’t find this exact model at many places in Canada, but the price for a 1.7L refrigerator is usually at least around $100 (and goes up from there).

Here’s what some Newegg.ca customers are saying about this compact fridge:

Pros: Small, quiet, energy efficient

Cons: Small. Really, really tiny. Not much space for much.

Pros: Great compact fridge. Fairly quiet. Stays cold very well (goes for many hours without having to turn on to maintain temperature, unless you’re opening it frequently of course). Has a tray under the freezer-portion. Rack is removable.

Cons: Makes a ping sound when the compressor turns on and off (not a lot of noise-dampening to reduce the sound, unlike with full-size fridge/freezers). Not a big deal, just an FYI. Wish it had a soda can track in the door.

Other Thoughts: EnergyGuide yellow card that came with estimates $26 annual electrical bill from use (10.65cents/kWh, total 247kWh).

Take advantage of this great deal before it disappears- with 53% off of the regular price of $149.99, it’s easy to see why you should act fast and nab this conveniently compact refrigerator before it’s too late! Check out this great deal from Newegg.ca, and remember that there’s a limit of 5 units per customer.

Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghosts Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset Only $99.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on August 13, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghosts Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset Only $99.99 @ Newegg.ca

There are gamers and then there are gamers… Noticed the difference? Okay, probably not. But if you had heard us say it, then you’d totally get what we’re talking about.  Newegg.ca is offering the Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghost Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset for $99.99 with free shipping!

The Call of Duty video game franchise is one of the best selling and beloved series of games out there. In fact you’d be hard pressed to find a more devoted group of gaming fans. So it’s only natural that these fans take their Call of Duty very seriously. That’s what makes this deal so great! Now we know what you might be thinking, “First off, that’s an excessively long product name. And secondly, that seems a little steep for video game headphones.” Well, they’re regularly priced at $299.99 so at $99.99, that’s a 67% saving.

Here are the online prices at other well-known retailers:

  • Best Buy $169.95
  • Future Shop $169.95
  • Amazon $199.99
  • The Source $229.96
  • Walmart $239.96

The headsets offer a lot of bells and whistles to enhance every Call of Duty Ghost fan’s experience. Here are some of the headset’s key features:

  • Dual Band WiFi provide clearer chat and game audio
  • Premium Dolby Digital Surround Sound
  • Wireless Bluetooth that allows you to mix game audio with your own music and answer calls
  • 15 hours of battery life
  • Official Call of Duty Ghost game sound enhancements specifically designed from the game’s developers.

Now, the reviews on the site are mixed. Either you love them or you don’t. But the reviews from other sites seem to be more favorable than not. There are a lot of gaming headphone options currently out there. But at $99.99 marked down from $299.99, the Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Ghost Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset is really worth considering.

Save Up To 75% In The Ubisoft Video Game Sale @ Newegg.ca!

Posted by on August 9, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Save Up To 75% In The Ubisoft Video Game Sale @ Newegg.ca!

This weekend, Newegg.ca has announced a special sale on Ubisoft PC game titles, when the digital codes are purchased through their website. There is up to 75% off select titles, and from what I can tell, there are a few great bargains in there!

There are over 32 different titles to choose from in this sale. Some video games are at 50% off, but the majority are discounted by 75%.

Let’s price compare the headliner deal in this sale from Newegg.ca – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Gold Edition which is priced at $29.99 on there. That’s half price, according to Newegg.ca. The price for this game is $49.99 on the EA Origin store. It’s also $59.99 on GreenMan Gaming, $59.99 @ uPlay, $59.99 @ Steam and Gamersgate is $59.99 too.

Needless to say, that’s a hot price from Newegg. For this game, Newegg gives you a DRM code to play it through the uPlay service. As for reviews for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Metacritic gives this game a metascore of 83/100 – really high. If you’re interested, pick it up now at this super price from Newegg.ca.

Some other good potential deals:

If you’re looking at other titles in the Newegg video game sale, I strongly suggest you price compare each individual item. While I have shown above that the Assassin’s Creed game is a very good deal, this isn’t necessarily true for every single gaming title there. Pop the select game in to Google.ca and see what prices you can find.

Spot any bargains? Let us know in the comments below what you can find.

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Posted by on August 8, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Newegg.ca: Free Games & Software With Processor Purchase ($99 Value)

Newegg Canada is offering a bundle of software and games free when you purchase select fourth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors.

No coupon code is necessary; the bundle is included with your purchase as shown.

Your bundle full of freebies includes the following:

  • Grid Autosport
  • Shadowrun Returns
  • Star Chart
  • McAfee LiveSafe

All of the above games/software are digital downloads from my understanding. You will be given redemption codes to download all the above games and software.

I wasn’t so sure about the value attributed to this bundle so I did some snooping around. The easiest place to start was with the McAfee LiveSafe software. McAfee themselves sells this for $79.99 and I found it as cheap as $64.55 at Amazon.ca. As for the games, here is what I found:

Even with Star Chart being a free app for Windows 8 (not sure why it is included in this bundle), this bundle still calculates in at well over the $99 declared value. I think that Star Chart may only be available on Windows 8 (not Windows 7 if you are planning to run it). However, it is compatible with iOS and Android systems. The redemption code might cover them, I do not know.

So what is your best deal? The cheaper the processor, then the better the freebie value against the original product. Thus, I would suggest looking at the Intel Core i5-4430 Haswell Quad-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54430 for $189.99.

Now, I was thinking that this processor is a great deal already because you are receiving approximately $130 worth of games and software on top of it, the way I calculate things. However, I also did some price comparing just to make sure they had not inflated the price of the processor to compensate. The BX80646I54430 processor at NCIX costs $199.99 + shipping and at Direct Canada, it costs $201.82 + shipping. Therefore, you are not only receiving an awesome bundle of freebies, you are also receiving a good deal on the initial product.

Shipping for this bundle should be just $4.99. There are also many other processors to choose from if you need something a bit more powerful. There are a couple others coming in under $200 if you are under a budget, and they go up to much higher prices for the more advanced models.

Newegg.ca: $10 Off Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime & Free $5 GC

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Newegg.ca: $10 Off Malwarebytes Anti Malware Pro Lifetime & Free $5 GC

Newegg Canada is selling Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime for one PC – OEM at $10 off the regular price. Buy this fantastic anti-malware software for just $19.99, reduced from $29.99, and receive free shipping and a free $5 gift card.

There is a limit of one per customer. This software detects and protects your computer against malware. It also blocks phishing (people trying to steal your information like passwords and credit cards) and hacking attempts. You can schedule automatic scanning with their three flexible scanning modes. They advertise themselves as an advanced software removal package, and for $19.99, you will receive a lifetime subscription for one personal computer.

Now, I am sure you are thinking: what happens if I buy a new computer? Well, I dug into some fine print and found the solution. According to Malwarebytes’ website, you just need to follow some easy steps to transfer your license from one computer to your next computer:

ISSUE: I’m changing computers. How do I Transfer my License to the new computer?

SOLUTION: Keep a copy of your ID/KEY from the computer you wish to remove it from and you can run the following to remove it from the old computer.

  • Download and run this utility. mbam-clean.exe (link only works if you have software)
  • It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).
  • Then install MBAM on the new computer and activate it with the ID/KEY from the system you just removed it from.

You should also have an email from Cleverbridge with your ID/KEY purchase information.

This licence is essentially for your lifetime on one personal computer. Your personal computer can change; you just can only have the licence installed on one computer at a time.

Not only do you receive free shipping on this software package, you will also receive a free $5 Newegg promotional card. Your promotional gift card will be issued four days after you are invoiced for your purchase. Promotional gift cards can only be redeemed online through Newegg.ca and they expire one year after being issued. You do not need to use the entire value all in one purchase (though I am sure with $5 you probably would). Leftover credit can be used for another purchase.

I cannot begin to mention the troubles I have had with my computer and McAfee. When my anti-virus and malware protection comes due, I am switching over to something less problematic!

Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on August 2, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Newegg sent me a link to this item on their site, which appears to be a very good deal – so I thought I’d let you guys know about it too. I’ve never seen a Sphero Robotic Ball, it’s an interesting product! Regularly priced at $219.99 (?), you can pick it up for only $69.96 with free shipping from the Newegg marketplace right now.

The item is on Newegg marketplace, and it’s sold via Shoptronics. That’s a brand we’ve also mentioned here on Bargainmoose too.

But what does it do!? The Sphero is a robotic gamaing system which is compatible with iOS & Android. It’s not just a ball that changes colours! There a few games built in, as well as some augmented reality games.

Compatibility

This Sphero Robotic Ball works with the following devices as long as they have ios 4 or greater: iPad, iPad 2, iPod Touch (3 & 4) and iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, 5). It also works with Android Marketplace Android devices with operating system 2 & 2.2.

Price Comparison

Prices elsewhere in ascending order: $93 @ Amazon, $95 @ Shop.ca, $100 @ The Source. Just note that the Sphero 2 is now out and available. If you’re searching and price comparing yourself, note that the second edition may come up in your searches too. So therefore, this price from the Newegg Marketplace is pretty great, coming in at 25% less than the next price up.

Video Review

Here’s a little review I found on Youtube if you want to have a watch:

The guy above shows you some of the things you can do and some of the games which you can play on the Sphero.Check out the zombie game! The Sphero looks really cool, I’d imagine my four year old daughter would love this.  Actually, now that I come to think of it, my 39 year old partner would also love it. Sphero Robotic Ball Only $70 & Free Shipping @ Newegg.ca

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

Posted by on July 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Borderlands 2 & Borderlands: GOTY Bundle Pack (PC Game) Only $9.99 @ Newegg.ca

I blogged a hot video game deal earlier, Fallout New Vegas from uPlay. And I’ve stumbled on another hot video game deal for the PC. This time, it’s the Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Game of the Year Bundle Pack. The regular price of this video game bundle is $49.98 but you can save $39.99 at Newegg.ca now – the digital video game bundle is priced at only $9.99!

As I said above, this is a digital bundle. You won’t be getting anything shipped to your home, you will just get the game codes to download and install these games on your PC. As far as I can see, you’ll need to download Steam to enable you to play this.

Just for your information, this video game bundle at Newegg.ca doesn’t give you all the potential Borderlands DLC and content. There’s some additional DLC for Borderlands 2 which isn’t included… you might want to consider adding that at a later stage.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Borderlands PC game franchise! When the first game was released about five years ago, I was an avid fan and played it every evening and weekend for months and months. I enjoyed it immensely because I played it co-op with my partner and we used to have great fun completing all the missions together. The only real problem I had at the time was that I was pregnant… so an extended session of Borderlands usually resulted in me throwing up. But it was worth it!

Then funnily enough, when Borderlands 2 was released, I was pregnant with my second baby. There was still a bit of throwing up but not nearly as much as the first time round. I didn’t get quite as addicted to Borderlands 2 as much as I had been to the first edition. I don’t think the gameplay was quite as good fun…. But it was still a pretty entertaining game.

Price Comparison!

While it is a little hard to price compare this PC video game set because it’s a bundle, we’ll see what we can do to show you how good the price from Newegg actually is. On Steam itself, here is the price to buy the individual components:

  • Borderlands GOTY – $29.99
  • Borderlands 2 – $19.99

Therefore, the total to buy this set through Steam right now would be $49.98 – and you’re getting it for a measly $9.99 through Newegg. More price comparisons:

  • EBgames – $19.99 plus $29.99 = $49.98
  • Amazon.ca – $11.99 plus $14.43 = $26.42

Definitely the best price from Newegg!

Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Newegg Canada is selling the Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Series Headset for just $79.99 with free shipping. That is 50% off the original retail value of $159.99. You will also receive a free $10 promotional gift card for Newegg.ca with your purchase.

Amazon Canada has this headset on sale for $99.99 with free shipping, which is $20 more and does not include a free gift card. Walmart.ca is selling the headset for $159.83 and The Source is selling the headset for $159.99. Newegg Canada’s price is not only the best, but the freebie makes it a sweet offer.

This headset features Dolby Surround Sound Speakers for a mind-blowing auditory experience. The earpieces are adjustable so you can get a good fit on your ears and enjoy the most incredible sound filtered into your ears from 360 degrees. The headset is wireless, no accidentally tripping on your headset wire or pulling your headset off when you gesture emphatically at the screen. The Turtle Beach headset also has ‘dynamic chat boost,’ making sure you can always hear your team mates while you play games. You can also monitor your own voice with the microphone monitor so you are not screaming at your mates when you get excited. There is no need to break any eardrums.

The headset is designed specifically for the Xbox 360, but would pair well with any console. It does require a digital optical cable hookup to either your Xbox or TV according to reviewers so make sure you have that input available.

Oddly enough, there is only one review for this headset on Newegg and it is negative. I checked over at Amazon because they have a larger pool of reviewers, and the reviews were quite positive over there. On Amazon Canada the Turtle Beach X42 has four 5-star reviews and three 4-star reviews.

Your promotional gift card will be issued four days after you are invoiced for your purchase. Promotional gift cards can only be redeemed online through Newegg.ca and they expire one year after being issued. You do not need to use the entire value all in one purchase, left over credit can be used for another purchase.

I own a Turtle Beach headset and it is very good. The microphone is far superior to many I have tried before and the sound quality is good for the price I paid. For a gaming headset, I have been happy with this brand.

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Newegg Canada: Over 70% off JBL Speakers

Newegg Canada is offering just over 70% off JBL Speakers for your home entertainment system.

I know a lot about headphones because I take most of my music directly: shot straight into my head. However, home speakers are rather outside my scope so bear with me on this post. Now, there are two speakers on sale for a good chunk of savings. First off, you have the JBL Studio 180 6.5″ 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker which was $349.99 and is on sale for $99.99 + $28.63 shipping. That shipping may seem a bit high, but as you are saving 71% on the speaker alone, and a speaker is a pretty big and heavy piece, I think it is worth it. This speaker boasts the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 45Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 89dB(2.83V@1m)

If anyone would like to chime in what that actually means, be my guest. The reviews on these speakers are mixed, with most the reviews being good with the occasional negative thrown in. The latest reviewer gave a quick rundown on the pros and cons according to him:

Pros: Well constructed cabinets and drivers. Very good low end and balanced by a bright high end that’s not shrill.

Cons: The speaker covers are kind of ugly, with the cheap plastic look.

For just a few more dollars, you can buy the JBL Studio 1 Series Studio 190 Home Audio Speaker Single, which was $449.99, for only $126.99 + $19.99 shipping. I have no idea why the shipping is cheaper on this model, but it does help to balance out the few extra dollars you are spending on the speaker. This speaker has the following stats:

  • Frequency Response: (-3dB) 40Hz – 22kHz
  • Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz, 3.2kHz, 6dB/octave
  • 8 Ohms 200W
  • 90 db @ 1 watt, 1 meter

Also, this speaker has far more favourable reviews with a near perfect 5/5 eggs. One gentleman has owned these for over a year and he said:

These 190′s did not disappoint! Crisp airy highs and thunderous lows with a fast attack that makes rock and modern music sizzle. Yet, put on some classical and the strings sound as if they are in the room with you – with all the texture of a live performance. Truly amazing. What’s even more amazing is that there must have been a break in period because they sound even better now.

At just over 70% off their original price, I figured this might be a good deal for any audiophiles out there.
