Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 7

Dell Canada Day 7

Today DELL is selling its new 2007 20” and 24” widescreen monitors for relatively good prices.

Today’s main deal is the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP 20″ Widescreen LCD w/Height Adjustable Stand for $399 (regular price $599) and the second deal is the Dell UltraSharp 2407FPW 24″ Widescreen LCD w/Height Adjustable Stand for $769 (regular price $769).

Although $399 is a wonderful price for a 20” widescreen I strongly recommend you keep away from these two widescreen monitors unless you’re using them for some professional task that requires very high resolutions.

The reasons for my discouragement:
1) This 20″ monitor isn’t a true widescreen nor is it a normal screen! it’s just slightly wider than a normal monitor. This can cause Microsoft Windows to look weird or stretched unless you run it at a high resolution (of 1600 x 1200) in which case everything will be too small to read.
2) If you try running this monitor at lower resolutions (which is what most of us prefer) the picture will not look sharp which defys the whole purpose of this monitor.
3) Compared to a 19” this monitor is just slightly taller and about 1” wider. So yes it is larger but it is not large enough to justify the $100 more you’ll spend on it.

So in a nutshell the price is good but unless you’re willing to run your monitor on high resolution and/or spend some time tweaking it don’t bother with today’s main deal.

As for the 24″ monitor, it has a few problems as well. You can find out more about these problems here.

Some of Dell’s other deals today include:
– D-Link DGS-1005D 5-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch – $29
– NEC MultiSync LCD3210 31.5″ LCD Display – $1799
– Metallic Blue Graphire4 6×8 Pen Graphics Tablet – $149
– 48W 6-Cell Seconday Battery (D-Series) – $99

Note that shipping is free.

Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 6

 Dell Canada Day 6

At last Dell is offering a bunch of good deals today 🙂

Today’s main deal is the Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router. This router is on sale for $49 (regular price $99).

If you have several computers at home you can easily setup a wireless home network using this router such that all your computers can simultaneously connect to the internet. Linksys is a well known networking company that develops high quality wireless routers. The Linksys WRT54GL has a very good reputation for its reliable performance and ease of use. If you don’t have a wireless network at home and have several computers (e.g. a desktop and a laptop) I strongly recommend this device.

Note for geeks: “The WRT54G is famous for being the first consumer-level network device that had its firmware source code released to satisfy the obligations of the GNU GPL. This allows programming enthusiasts to modify the firmware to change or add functionality to the device.” More details about reprogramming the WRT54G here.

Some of today’s other deals are very good as well:
– TrendNET Wireless G Advanced Pan & Tilt Camera – $149
– Logitech Premium USB Headset 350 w/Microphone – $29
– D-Link PersonalAir DBT-122 – Bluetooth Network adapter – $24
– Belkin SurgeMaster Gold 9-Outlet Surge Protector with 10 Feet Cord – $19
– MS Student 2006 w/ Encarta Premium and Learning Essentials (DVD Version) – $49

Logitech Premium USB Headset 350 w/Microphone is an awesome headset and although $29 isn’t as low as I would’ve hoped, it’s still pretty good. If you use msn Messenger, Skype or other messaging programs to voice chat with your family and friends you’ll find that this Logitech Premium USB Headset 350 will totally improve your whole voice conversation experience. The other party will hear you much better without an echo and you’ll hear them very clearly too. If you still use a separate microphone and speakers during your voice conversation I strongly recommend you buy this headset.

Encarta is too over priced. It hasn’t significantly improved over the past couple of years. I’d just stick to any old Encarta version and use it in conjunction with Wikipedia which is updated more frequently although is not as reliable as Britannica and Encarta.

Note that shipping is free.

Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 5

Dell Canada Day 5

Today’s main deal is the Slingbox Personal TV Broadcaster for $179 (regular price $249).

According to wikipedia:

A Slingbox is a TV streaming device that enables consumers to remotely view their cable, satellite, or personal video recorder (PVR) programming from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection.

This price is very good for the Slingbox. The Slingbox is a device that we can certainly live without, but if you’re interested in it now is the time to buy it.

Some of Dell’s other deals today include:
– Dell 1110 Laser Printer – $79
– Dell 1200MP DLP Projector – $599

Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 3

Dell Canada Day 3 

Today’s main Deal is a Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC (Personal Digital Assistant PDA). It is on sale for $369 (regular price $529). Now this deal isn’t really that great since this PDA has been around for a while and isn’t really reduced that much. But the good news is that some of today’s other deals are pretty good:

– IOGear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones & Microphone – $79
– Kingston Elite Pro 2GB SD Card – $49
– FinePix A510 Digital Camera – $189
– Z22 Handheld – $99
– 200 GB 7200 RPM Barracuda 7200.9 Ultra ATA/100 Internal Hard Drive – $79

If you own a camera that uses SD cards (like Canon cameras and most other brands except for mainly Sony) the Kingston Elite Pro 2GB SD Card is one hot deal FOR $49.

If you’re running out of space on your PC the 200GB Internal Hard Drive for $79 is a good deal too.

Remember shipping is free.

Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 2

Dell Day 2 

Good deals but nothing spectacular on Flat panel LCD displays today.

DELL 1907FP 19” Digital flat panel is on sale for $249 (regular price $349).

This monitor is of very high quality. The image is bright, sharp and clear. Low response time also insures that you almost get no shadowing (so if you move a window around you won’t feel it leaving shadows or trails behind). You can also rotate the screen so that it’s vertical and one of this monitor’s most comfortable features are the integrated USB ports for easy access to connect peripheral devices.

The only problem is that Dell had a very similar deal a few months ago. Given the Canadian dollar’s rise since then you would have expected Dell to lower their prices a bit. You can find 19” monitors on sale for $199 at Staples and Future Shop. They might not be as good as the Dell ones but for people on a tight budget the $199 ones are perfectly fine. I also expect 21” monitors to become the mainstream soon which will result in huge price drops on 19” monitors.

So in a nutshell, the monitors on sale are wonderful but the price should have been lower. I’d recommend you wait for better deals.

Some of Dell’s other deals today include:

– Dell E196FP 19-inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor – $219
- Kensington PilotMouse Wireless Laser Mouse – $29
– LX Arm with Constant Force (CF) – $119
– Verto GeForce 6600 256MB DDR 8X AGP Graphics Card – $99
– Stylus Photo R220 Inkjet Printer – $99

Dell Canada’s 14 Days of Deals: Day 1

Not a very good start:

Day 1

Today’s main deal is a Belin Wireless Desktop 130 for $19 (regular price $59). The mouse isn’t too bad. It has a good response time and looks fairly good. Unfortunately, the keyboard isn’t exactly top quality. It has lots of extra buttons and a built in built-in wrist rest but its cheap look and feel would prevent me from buying it.

Interestingly, Dell misspelled the word quiet:

Dell Busted

Not a very professional thing to do 😉

The bottom line: if you’re looking for an inexpensive mouse and keyboard this deal from Dell might do the trick. I however do not recommend it.

Some of Dell’s other deals include:
– Kodak EasyShare C533 5MP, 3x Optical Zoom Digital Camera – $149
– Discovery 640 Bluetooth Headset – $69
– Kingston 2GB CompactFlash Elite Pro Card – $69
– Kingston USB 2.0 15-in-1 Memory Card Reader – $17
– Sanyo CLT E40 Digital Slide-to-Open Cordless Phone with Caller ID – $79

Sorry for the lack of updates. I had to travel to Ottawa and I didn’t have easy Internet access during my stay. SmartCanucks is back to normal. Next time I’ll make sure I leave a notice on the blog before traveling anywhere.

I have some good news to make:

Canadian Girl will start writing in the blog and forum as well 🙂 She’ll be using a different nickname (which she hasn’t chosen yet). Instead of posting deals, she’ll have some other fascinating stuff like competitions, tips and advice, interesting news and much more 🙂

I’ll also be dedicating much more time to SmartCanucks so you’ll get much more deals and freebies.

Don’t forget to check out the forum regularly. Several people, especially Lesley, are posting some fabulous deals and freebies 🙂
