The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Posted by on August 28, 2014 at 4:30 PM

The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Receive a free HP Deskjet 2542 all-in-one printer worth $79.99 when you purchase any laptop at The Source Canada for four days only.

This older model printer is no longer available at the majority of the stores I looked at when I was attempting to price compare. However, companies bring out new printer models several times a year so it does not surprise me that a perfectly good printer is no longer on vogue. My nearly four-year-old HP Touchsmart printer was no longer sold mere months after I bought it, and yet it still functions perfectly well (except for the odd digested paper).

You do not need to add the printer to your cart; rather it will be automatically added for you with a qualifying laptop and then discounted to $0.

The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Let us talk about inexpensive computers. Face it, not everyone has the money to go out put down half a month’s income on a new connection to the mythical land of Facebook and  planet Twitter. In addition, as most honest computer technicians worth their salt will tell you, the computers that people own far exceed their requirements. It is like getting a Lamborghini to go grocery shopping: overkill. Thankfully, The Source has several base models that will cost you under $250 and take care of your basic needs.

Acer Aspire AOD270-1892 10.1″ Netbook – Was $349.98 | Now $199.96

This netbook is the ultimate laptop for portability. The 10.1″ screen is still big enough to function for decent word processing, and the attached keyboard and following stats make it far better than a tablet that costs tons more. The stats are:

  • Intel Atom N2600 Dual-Core Processor
  • 1GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory
  • 320GB 5400RMP SATA hard drive

Acer Aspire One AO725-0691 11.6″ Netbook – Was $399.95 | Now $219.96

Get a slightly bigger screen, faster processor, and a bigger chunk of memory with this Netbook for only $20 more. Your screen also upgrades to LCD for superior viewing of HD films. The features are:

  • AMD C-60 Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 320GB Hard drive
  • Microsoft Office software

Both are open box models with full manufacturer’s warranty. The free printer offer can also stack, so if you buy two laptops you will receive two free printers. I do not think anyone needs two printers, but you might be able to sell the second one to cut down your overall costs.

Receive free shipping on orders of $30 or more.

The Source Canada: Acer Iconia 32GB Tablet Only $150

Posted by on August 21, 2014 at 1:00 PM

The Source Canada: Acer Iconia 32GB Tablet Only $150

With back-to-school sales in full swing, it’s that special time of year where education is paramount, and some parents are eagerly anticipating the start of the school year for their kids, whether they’re in elementary school, high school, college, or university. One way that they can make this transition easier for their summer-loving kids is with a massively discounted Acer Iconia tablet that’s being offered by The Source. For only $149.96, you can enjoy the benefits of a tablet for a fraction of the normal cost (a savings of 58% off of the regular price). According to The Source, it’s a display model of the tablet, that’s in mint condition and comes with a full manufacturer’s warranty. It also comes with free shipping to your door, or even a 3-5 day store pickup option- whatever accommodates your needs the most.

Normally retailing at $359.96, the  Acer Iconia 32GB 8.1″ tablet comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student. Since it comes with a full manufacturer’s warranty, I think it’s a great deal that you shouldn’t miss out on- especially when you see what it retails for at other locations. At Amazon.ca, you can find it brand new for $388.04 and refurbished for $249.99, while at NCIX.com, they have one with an open box for $314.25.

At first, I considered a tablet to just be a gimmicky device that I didn’t need- after all, I already have a laptop, and my smart phone can also use a wide variety of apps. However, once I was lucky enough to receive a tablet as a gift, I haven’t been able to spend a day without using one (unless, of course, I’m out of town for the weekend). They’re very efficient- you’ll likely find yourself using it to check your emails, browse websites, check out TV shows and movies on Netflix or Youtube, or even write ideas or work on projects (especially handy on this device, since it comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student).

Laptopmag has a great review online about this tablet and there is a great review on Walmart’s site:

I own a W3 for two weeks now and I am very happy with it. This is real, fully functional Windows computer in your pocket. It runs real Windows 8 (not RT) and it has full MS Office already installed, you just have to activate it. Amazing for this price! Interface is very smooth, no lags and glitches. Very convenient tools for meetings, can be connected to projector, recognizes hand writing etc. The screen is not bad, but can be better. Also it lacks some features like compass and GPS, but those is not very essential.

The Source also has several other tablets on sale, including the ACER Iconia Android Tablet – 8GB for $169.96, ACER Iconia Android tablet – 16GB for $129.96, and several other tablets that are all massively discounted due to them being display models.

The Source Canada: Kindle Fire 7″ HD Tablet 16GB Only $129.99

Posted by on August 15, 2014 at 3:30 PM

The Source Canada: Kindle Fire 7 HD Tablet 16GB Only $129.99

The Source Canada has a sweet deal on a 7″ HD Kindle Fire Tablet of the 16GB size. This open box tablet is on sale for $129.99, originally $214.99.

I price compared with Amazon.ca. They no longer have the 16GB 7″ HD Fire, but the 8GB tablet costs $149. I checked it out on Amazon.com and despite the confusion over with special offers and without special offers, this tablet retails for $184 USD = $200 CAN before shipping/duty. This means that The Source Canada is offering a fantastic deal on the Fire tablet.

This tablet is open box. That means it is a display model that comes with a full manufacturer’s warranty because they guarantee the quality of display models the same as closed box models. If anything should go wrong, then you can invoke the warranty just like you would with a brand new, never been used model.

The Fire tablet comes with 16GB built in memory, a 1280×800 HD display, dual-band dual-antenna Wi-Fi, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and a Micro HDMI port to hook your tablet up to a larger display.

You will receive approximately ten hours of life on a single battery charge with mixed use. If you are watching solid HD videos, then expect the battery life to be much lower. The device weighs in at 345 grams.

I have been reading many reviews of this tablet. Many people in Canada are disappointed because there is no way to integrate Kindle books or Audible (both Amazon apps) onto the Canadian Amazon Fire Tablet. Trust me; there is a lot of ranting about this. For those who bought this tablet specifically for the pleasure of those two apps, they are sorely disappointed. Otherwise, people have said that this tablet is quite good and a very good buy for the price. This commenter on Amazon is a perfect example:

I would have given 5 stars for price and quality from that short experience with it but after much frustration discovered that I can not have all the benefits promised when you purchase audio books from Audible and Kindle books.

For those whose do not care about those two apps, they generally have good things to say about the tablet:

User friendly! Great bang for your buck entry level tablet. Reading is slick, Facebook and games work great.

Overall, I think this is a great buy at this price. The Source offers free shipping on orders of $30 or more.

The Source Canada: Ti-83 Plus Graphing Calculator $99.99

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 10:00 AM

The Source Canada: Ti 83 Plus Graphing Calculator $99.99

Just in time for back to school shopping, The Source Canada has discounted the Ti-83 Plus Graphic Scientific Calculator from $149.99 to only $99.99. As the calculator costs over $30, which is The Source’s threshold for free shipping, the calculator will ship free of charge.

I never take a deal at face value (well, rarely), thus I conducted a few price comparisons to make sure this was the best deal. Amazon.ca is selling the Ti-83 Plus for $108.99, Staples Canada is selling the Ti-83 Plus for $124.96, and BestBuy is selling the Ti-83 Plus for $129.99. Therefore, The Source Canada currently has the best deal on this calculator.

It is a funny thing that high schools and universities are still using this calculator, because this is the same calculator I used in high school. Seriously! Now you might be totally thinking ‘old school’ but it also goes to show what a beast this calculator really is. Trust me, you would much rather input your X and your Y coordinates, and all the various other info you have and let this calculator graph it out for you than do it by hand. In geometry and algebra, this calculator was an absolute lifesaver! This graphing calculator:

…handles calculus, engineering, trigonometric, and financial functions and can display graphs and tables on split screen to trace graph while scrolling through table values.

I still own my Ti-83 Plus. It is sitting on the table right now as I finally had to strip out the old batteries (so dead), and am charging up some spare triple AAAs I had lying around. The calculator takes four AAA batteries and they last for many years. It also has a flat battery that resembles a quarter hidden inside the back. This is your backup memory battery, which I have only had to replace once in 12 years (estimating here). This calculator is also super durable with the slipcase. I have no idea how many times I have dropped, sat on, lost, or bashed mine.

My absolute favourite feature of this calculator is the eight line by 16 character display. You can put in an entire equation and see it all on the screen. Thus, if you made a mistake in one input you can find where you went wrong instead of sitting there puzzled or wondering if it is right. I loved this calculator for double-checking my equations.

The Source Canada: $120 Off Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit Smartwatch – Now $100

Posted by on August 2, 2014 at 11:00 PM

The Source Canada: $120 Off Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit Smartwatch   Now $100

Get with the times and get the Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit smartwatch for a $120 discount at The Source. Instead of its regular price of $219.99, it can be yours for just $99.99!

Features

  • 1.63″ super AMOLED screen
  • Dust & weather resistant
  • Alarm notifications for messages, e-mails, phone calls etc.

It also comes with the required lithium ion battery, which is then rechargeable with the Samsung charger that is included. The watch also comes with a charging cradle, which should be perfect for placing on the night stand or anywhere else in the house.

Even cooler is that you can actually also place and accept calls with the watch. Although my initial reaction was to think that this would be useful for individuals in a work setting, I actually do think it could also be useful for just about anyone, but especially moms and dads who are constantly on the go. There is nothing more challenging than trying to located your phone amongst a pile of dirty laundry or with hands full of groceries.

Gear Fit only alerts you to calls. You must take the call on the phone. Can also reject calls from the Gear Fit. Pretty much just alerts or notifies you, so you don’t need to dig for your phone everytime.

I constantly misplace my phone, so the fact that this watch could alert me when I’m out of range of it is definitely a nice feature to have.

Price Comparison

The only other place I found this watch is at B&H Photo Video for $149.95 along with duties and customs as it would ship from the US.

As for the Samsung Gear 2 smart watch, the next model in the series, the cheapest I have found it anywhere else is at Amazon, where it’s on sale for $164.99 from a regular retail price of $249.99. Both Best Buy and Future Shop also have this smartwatch for $199.95. If you’re wondering which watch to get, then Mike Plant’s “Gear 2 versus Gear Fit – which is the top gear?” should be helpful. Essentially, it really comes down to what you’re looking for. While both watches can be used for fitness, the Gear 2 has additional features like a camera and voice recognition, though personally, I would never see myself using the former as I prefer to use my iPhone’s better camera.

Shipping

Shipping is at a flat rate o $4.99 per order but to avoid this charge, you can have your order shipped to your local The Source store for free instead.

The Source Canada: $25 Savings Card With Purchase

Posted by on July 31, 2014 at 9:30 PM

The Source Canada: $25 Savings Card With Purchase

The Source Canada is giving out $25 savings cards with any purchase online or in store this week. It says savings cards are limited, so make sure you see it in your cart before checking out.

The $25 savings card can be redeemed on orders of $100 or more between August 14th through 27th. As this is a busy back to school time, they expect it will be easy for customers to spend that minimum and thus save an extra $25 off their order.

You can get this $25 savings card with any order. I was looked at the Xtreme Xfit Bluetooth Fitness Band that is currently priced at $49.99. This is a special promotional price, and after the 13th of August it will go up to $89.99. The Xfit comes with a bonus fitness band. This device tracks your total amount of calories burned in 24 hours, steps taken, distance traveled, and quality of sleep. My quality of sleep is non-existent, or maybe into the negatives if I think of it on a scale of one to ten. I would like a device to track how I actually sleep and then I could show my doctor the proof that my sleep cycle doesn’t exactly cycle, it more hobbles around.

If you need a new printer, then toddle over to The Source Canada to view the Canon PIXMA MX512 Wireless Color Photo Printer with scanner, copier, and fax machine. Do people still use fax machines these days? Either way, this stellar all-in-one printer is on sale from $129.99 to $69.96.  Printers usually come with two ink cartridges (one colour, and one black), which are worth about half the cost of the printer itself. The wireless feature allows you to print from any tablet or phone at the click of a button.

The HP Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One Wireless Color Photo Printer is also a great deal. Originally $149.99, The Source has it on sale for $69.99. I price compared this unit with Amazon.ca and they have it listed at $74.98. Out of nine reviews on The Source’s website, it ranks a 4.7/5. As one reviewer says:

This printer is great for a home office! Very easy to set up the wireless feature and also easy to use. The printing, scanning, faxing and copying features so far all work well and I think this is a great value for the dollar, especially if you get it on sale but even at regular price. Great job HP!

The Source Canada offers free shipping on orders of $30 or more.

The Source Canada: $30 Off R/C Fountain Boat – Now $39.99

Posted by on July 17, 2014 at 8:00 PM

The Source Canada: $30 Off R/C Fountain Boat   Now $39.99

Want to have some additional fun this summer in your pool or on the lake? Save $30 on this New Bright 23″ Remote Control Fountain Boat. Originally $69.99, the boat is on sale for $39.99.

The radio controller lets you direct the boat from shore. The fountain boat can go forward, reverse drive, and left/right all at the command of your hands.  The transmitter has a range of up to 100 feet. The boat and controller come with two AA and one 9.6V batteries so you do not need to buy them extra. I looked this boat up on various other websites and some say that the boat also comes with a battery charger, but The Source does not mention that.

One customer asked if you could run two boats at the same time. You can only do this is the boats are on different channels. These kinds of boats come in 27MHZ and 49MHZ. Unfortunately, The Source Canada does not say what frequency this particular boat is on. I also looked around and could not find any details on what frequency this boat runs on.

I did price compare this boat, but it was hard finding it in Canada from anyone but a secondary seller. The cheapest place I found this boat was at Walmart (US) for $50 and it was sold out. Amazon Canada resellers start at $80, and US resellers are worse. Given the other prices I was finding, I figured this was a pretty nice deal and a great gift for any kid who loves water, boats, or just driving things.

This boat is designed for ages eight or more. It is a great little toy for children and adults alike. I remember a relative of mine had a remote control monster truck when I was young, and all I ever wanted (besides his Lego collection) was that monster truck. My obsession in vehicles started young! I loved controlling it and making it go fast, and then do circles, and then chase the dog. I am sure this boat would be a lot of fun as well since I love water. I think it is super cool that it can go backwards, not just forward and turning. It also looks really great.

The Source offers free shipping on orders of $30 or more so this boat will ship for free to your place.

The Source: Pill Bottle Magnifier (2x) Now $3.96 (Orig. $12.99)

Posted by on July 13, 2014 at 11:00 PM

The Source: Pill Bottle Magnifier (2x) Now $3.96 (Orig. $12.99)

This product is a little spark of brilliance at such a low price. Pick up a two-pack of Innovative Technology Pill Bottle Magnifiers for only $3.96, originally $12.99.

I don’t know about your family, but there are a good deal of people in my family who take medication and most of those people wear glasses. My grandparents probably could not read the instructions on a pill bottle if they tried, and I always wonder how well they remember the pharmacist or doctor’s instructions if they do not write it down. Even my mother, who really is not that old, has trouble reading a pill bottle. She also has trouble opening one: there is nothing like giving your child a childproof pill bottle to get it open! Anyway, this product is super brilliant for anyone who is far sighted or who has poor vision.

The pill bottle magnifier fits all prescription bottles, so there is no need to worry whether it will fit around yours. It has a retractable arm for easy storage if you do not want to leave it attached to your bottle. There are two magnifiers included in each package, so you are paying less than $2 apiece. These lenses provide 3x magnification so you can read your prescription off the bottle easily and you might even be able to read some of the smaller print.

There is only one review of the product so far and the reviewer said:

good quality item if you have a bad eyes
a must have for people with eye problem

In my point of view, this is totally a matter of safety. You do not want to take the wrong dosage of medication or take your medication at the wrong time. You also want to heed any warning labels on your medication so you do not affect the potency of the medication. If you cannot read the label clearly, then your medication is a risk factor. A cheap little device like this can eliminate the problem.

Now, this is a cheap accessory so it will not meet the free shipping on $30 or more minimum. However, you can get it shipped to your local store free. You might also want to check out The Source’s up to 60% off clearance sale occurring right now for any other great deals you might want to take advantage of when you order this.

The Source Canada: Nikon CoolPix P530 Only $299

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 10:30 AM

The Source Canada: Nikon CoolPix P530 Only $299

The Source has a cool deal going on for the Nikon CoolPix P530. It is on sale for $317.99 with a regular price of $369.99, but if you add the coupon code TSP530, your price will go down to $299.99.

Of course I spent some time price comparing and researching and found this bundle from Costco for the camera, plus a few other items for $394.99. It is a good deal if you want the SD card and gadget bag, although you are essentially paying $94 for those two items, which doesn’t make any sense to me. Best Buy also has the camera on sale for $329.99, but The Source’s price still beats it. Vistek also has the CoolPix camera on sale, but for $375.99 and it is out of stock. As you can see, The Source has the best deal.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, DSLR camera with zooming capabilities, you’ve come to the right place. This camera has 42x optical zoom and 84x dynamic fine zoom. It has the vibration reduction technology that gives your photos a clear look, even if your hands are a little shaky. I get excited taking photos too! I recently bought myself a new Nikon camera, although it is a far more expensive one, as I need the option to change lenses. This one doesn’t let you do that, but if you don’t care to, I’m going to say this is a perfect camera for you. It has so many features you’ll need otherwise. I think the Nikon brand is solid and I’ve never been disappointed in what Nikon delivers.

What most cameras are coming with these days is the ability to shoot 1080p full HD video. I wish I knew that before I bought my handy cam, as there is such a thing as having too many electronic devices with you. When my son had a play at his school, I had with me: my DSLR, the telephoto lens, my handycam, plus my phone so I could take a photo or video and immediately update it on my Facebook page. How nice it would be to just carry one recording device and be done with it!

You can get free in-store pick-up or you can get it shipped to you for $4.99.

The Source Canada: $130 Off HP or Acer Laptop

Posted by on June 4, 2014 at 5:00 PM

The Source Canada: $130 Off HP or Acer Laptop

The Source Canada is offering $130 off two fantastic little entry level laptops that will serve all your needs and more. Save $130 on either the ACER V3-571-6847 or the HP Pavilion 15-E020CA.

First off, let us look at the Acer V3-571-6847, which would be my choice of the two laptops. The laptop is in “open box” condition with full warranty. Regularly, the laptop retails for $499 but The Source currently has it on sale for only $369.96. I price compared with the manufacturer themselves and they sell this exact computer for $499. This computer measures 15.6″ and features:

  • Intel core I3-2328M processor
  • 500GB hard drive
  • 6 GB RAM memory
  • and Windows 8-Iron

This is a solid computer with a good balance between speed and space. I do not know much about the Windows 8-Iron operating system, but I assume anything is an improvement on Windows 8. What really impresses me about this laptop is the price: you can pick up this laptop in mint condition with full warranty for $370. This is a little dream machine.

The second sweet little computer deal I found at The Source is on this HP Pavilion 15-E020CA laptop. It is also an “open box” model that comes with full manufacturer’s warranty. Originally, $479.99, the laptop is now on sale for $349.99. I could not find this laptop at many places, but I did locate it at Canada Computers where it was priced at $468.88 (though OOS). This beauty is also 15.6″ and features:

  • AMD Elite A6-5350M Accelerated Processor
  • 750GB hard drive
  • 4 GB RAM memory
  • and Windows 8

Comparing the two computers, the HP has a larger hard drive but smaller memory, which does affect speed. It will really depend on your own personal preference. I like a more balanced computer so I would go for the Acer, which combines decent speed with a good sized hard drive. If you tend to store a lot of music, videos, and photos on your computer (I call it digital hoarder syndrome) you might want to consider the HP which gives you an extra 250 GB hard drive for $20 less.

Both these laptops come in under $400, which is a great price for a laptop these days. With the HP at $350 and the Acer at $370, you can really pick which laptop serves your needs. No matter which laptop you choose, either laptop will come with free shipping as they cost over $20 each.

There are many more discounted open box laptops on sale at The Source Canada. Check them all out!

The Source Canada: SuperTooth Disco 2 Speaker Only $40

The Source Canada: SuperTooth Disco 2 Speaker Only $40

The Source Canada is selling the funky SuperTooth Disco 2 Bluetooth Speaker in black for only $40. The speaker has been refurbished but it comes with full manufacturer’s warranty so it is as good as new.

So I did some price comparing. This same speaker is $83.24 at Amazon.ca, $97.98 at Bestbuy.ca and Future Shop, and $92.99 + $6.51 shipping at Newegg.ca. The original retail price for this speaker was $99.99. Easily, The Source has the best price by far and I do not see anyone else dropping their price near this amount anytime soon.

While some people get all twitchy around refurbished products, I really like to remind them that with a non-refurbished product it was just made and shoved in a box. With a refurbished product a problem has generally already been identified and fixed, so you have a better chance of coming out with a problem free product. I have had excellent success with purchasing refurbished products to keep my expenses down. As an extra precaution there is the full manufacturer’s warranty in the instance, you do have an issue. The same as any product you buy.

This device connects to any device that is Bluetooth A2DP compatible. This sexy little portable speaker features two speakers on the front and a bass reflex system on the back. Unlike other speakers where you have to have a good stack of batteries on hand, the Disco 2 features an integrated rechargeable battery, which supports three to four hours of music at maximum-volume or up to 10 hours at moderate volume levels. If your device is not Bluetooth compatible, there is a 3.5 mm stereo jack.

One reviewer on The Source said:

I grabbed this unit on sale and I was blown away by the sound that comes out of it! All the other reviews online speak for themselves! At $40 you can’t go wrong!

With the rechargeable battery, the very reasonable price point, and the sheer stylishness of this speaker I say it is a real winner. The Source Canada is also offering free shipping to your home on orders of $20 or more right now, so it is the perfect time to buy this little device. You could even give it to your Dad for Father’s Day. Might be a nice little speaker for him to stick in his den or garage and play tunes on.

The Source Canada: $70 Off Garmin Virb True HD Action Camera (Now $260)

The Source Canada: $70 Off Garmin Virb True HD Action Camera (Now $260)

Perfect for anyone always on the go, the Garmin Virb True HD action camera is currently $70 off at The Source and is available for $259.99 (reg. $339.99). This could also make for the perfect Father’s Day gift! The Source Canada: $70 Off Garmin Virb True HD Action Camera (Now $260)

I price compared with action cameras at Best Buy and the cheapest I found is the Veho Muhi HD mini handsfree camcorder. While it’s certainly cheaper, the camera is only of 5MP, while the Garmin one features 15MP. I’d say that for a $60 price difference, it’s definitely worth getting the Garmin to benefit from better quality results.

Other than the image quality, an important feature that should always be considered is the battery life because you certainly don’t want the camera to shut down on you in the middle of a great moment. The Garmin Virb battery life lasts up to 3 hours, although I imagine that it can last much longer if you don’t use it continuously.

Another feature that caught my attention is that it’s waterproof. Don’t get too excited though because what they mean by that is that it can withstand an accidental drop into water of up to 30 minutes. I wouldn’t recommend testing it out but it’s still nice knowing that if your three year old happens to “accidentally” drop it into the water, then you won’t necessarily lose all of your videos or have to reinvest in a new camera, although I would definitely suggest always backing all of your videos and keeping your camera in a cool and dry place. But since I have never actually tried out this camera, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I used this camera for the first time while out in the trails last week and I love it! With the slide of one large button it powers up and starts recording. No pushing a little button and looking for a light, etc.
I’ve captured more footage of just the moments I wanted to capture due to this feature! Battery life is good. The location of the micro SD under the battery is a pain but that’s all.

Be sure to also check out The Source’s Home Entertainment Clearance Event going on right now with savings of up to 40% off.

Although shipping is at a flat rate of $4.99 per order, you can also choose to pick it up in-stores absolutely free.

The Source Canada: Water Dancing Speakers $19.99

The Source Canada: Water Dancing Speakers $19.99

The Source Canada is selling these super cool Water Dancing Speakers for only $19.99, originally $49.99.

I price compared these speakers at Amazon.ca where a marketplace seller has them priced at $39.99. That was the only place I could really find them in Canada but most the places I saw them in the USA had them priced at $39.99 as well.

These speakers have had a lot of positive reviews at The Source Canada. Out of 73 reviews, the speakers average a 4 1/2 stars out of five. If you are looking high end sound quality, then this pair of speakers is not for you. But if you are looking for acceptable quality with a wicked lightshow… then step right up and pick up this deal.

As one reviewer said:

The way the colored water jets light up the chambers is something else. Over all these speakers do serve there purpose and are good value when on sale.

That reviewer bought his set for $30. You can not buy them for only $20 and enjoy the same awesome waterworks. The water does not just follow some randomized sequence, it actually shoots up with the beat of your tunes. Great for your own personal pleasure, or a conversational piece at a party.

Receive free shipping on $20 or more at The Source.
