After a long and arduous journey of wadding through the hordes of people at the IT Show, its time yet again to see if its worth the effort to make the trip to Suntec.
Will it be slim pickings or would there be some standout deals in the mix? Lets find out.
Here is the list in no particular order:
Item: Sandisk Extreme 32/64 Gb
While the 32Gb variation wasn’t the super deal it was like last year’s 11.11 promo @ $18.99, $24 is still quite a good deal and the rates for its higher capacity variants are competitive to US pricing without the hassle of shipping. Overall its great for people who require the higher throughput in a microSD form factor.
Item: Dell SE2419H/ SE2719H
Price: SGD$169/ 209
In yet another double bill, the Dell SE2419H and SE2719H continues the tradition of its 2017 predecessor of bringing the slim bezel experience to the budget segment of monitors. With a pricing that is even more competitive than its pricing in USD, this deal comes highly recommended.
Item: Asus VivoBook S15
For people who are looking out for thin and light laptops in the low to mid range price segment, ASUS seems to always deliver really good price to performance ratio in this area. Equipped with a mid-range 8th Gen low power CPU, 16GB RAM and a dedicated (albeit lowest end) NVIDIA GPU, this laptop is excellent for office and productivity tasks.
Item: Playstation 4 Pro Bundle
Price: $559 (varies)
For those who have missed out on last year’s 11.11 and Black Friday deals for Sony’s console, there is once again a chance for you to grab the console with a game (the seminal God of War in this case) together with a free controller for $559.
A friendly reminder to our readers that a PS4 console is required to play Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding coming late 2019.
Item: Logitech G413
The Logitech G413 offers excellent value for the price point with RGB lighting, 20-KRO (the ability handle simultaneous key presses) with a sleek design and brushed finished exterior.
While this price point is not exclusive to the IT show, it still competes well against its competitors that would usually retail at around the $150 – 200 price point making this a great bargain for those looking for RGB customization on the cheap; provided you like the subjective typing feel of Logitech’s own Romer G switches.
Item: Sony A7 RII
At $2749, the Sony A7 RII is a good price for aspiring photographers to get into full-frame, high MP photography which normally retails for about $200 – 300 more. This is provided you do not mind the lackluster AF system compared to Sony’s latest and greatest.
Item: Acer XV273K P
For those that require the most feature complete monitor, this would be it. Yes its OVER
9000 $1000 for just the monitor. But when it comes to putting it by its competition from Asus, BenQ, Viewsonic, Dell and the like, not many can claim to have true 10-bit support AND high refresh rate within the 4k category all within similar pricing to its competitors. That’s value to some.
