HWZ Deal Alert: 5th July 2018

Got good deals, must share!

Shop till you drop!

 

1.) Logitech MX Ergo

Logitech and trackball fans got a treat last year when the input device maker announced the MX Ergo, an advanced wireless trackball (you can connect either with the Unifying receiver or Bluetooth) that has an
adjustable hinge for customizing the trackball angle, advanced laser-grade optical tracking, a precision scroll-wheel with tilt and middle clicks support, and eight customizable shortcut buttons. In terms of battery life, Logitech says the MX Ergo can last for up to 4 months on a full charge, and a minute of charging is enough to give you a full day of use. Amazon is now selling the wireless trackball for US$80 (~S$110). With shipping included you’re looking at somewhere around US$87 (~S$120).

2.) SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD (500GB)

The new SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD series offers up to 550MB/s read speeds, is water and dust-resistant (rated IP55), and can withstand up to a 2-meter drop. Compatible with both Windows and Mac, the drive uses a USB 3.1 Type-C interface but comes with a USB Type-C to Type-C cable and a Type-C to Type-A adapter to allow it to work with non-Type-C-equipped devices. The 500GB model is going for US$126 on Amazon right now, and even with shipping cost included, you’re looking at US$131 (~S$180), which is still cheaper than the ~S$230 price you can find locally.

3.) Anker Nebula Mars II

I’ve covered this before, but the offer is still available: Anker’s latest 720p portable projector, the Nebula Mars II, is now on sale on Amazon for US$430 (U.P: US$530). Running Android 7.1, this projector comes with dual 10W speakers, 30,000 hours of lamp life, and an auto image focus feature so that you don’t need to fiddle with the focus wheel every time you move the unit. The Mars II also lasts up to 4 hours of video playback on a single charge. Caveat: Amazon doesn't ship this product to Singapore, so you’d need to use a forwarder, especially one that lets you ship a product with an internal battery. Also, since you’re importing something worth more than S$400, you’re going to incur GST.

4.) Goruck ‘X-mas in July’ Sale

Goruck bags are extremely durable, and they’re also very expensive. But if you’ve been eyeing one for the longest time, now’s perhaps the best time to get it: the bag maker is currently running a ‘X-mas in July’ sale, and some items are going for up to 40% off. For example, certain designs of the popular Goruck GR1 (21L) is now selling for US$205 (U.P: US$295). If that’s too hardcore for you, or you don’t go to war zones, the Rucker 2.0, which serves well as an active everyday backpack, is going for US$155 (U.P: US$215). But before you pull the trigger, take a moment to consider the shipping cost. Goruck does ship to Singapore, but since it uses DHL Express, it won’t be cheap (e.g., it costs US$75 to ship the GR1).

5. Samsung Evo 860 SSD (500GB)

The Samsung Evo 860 boasts sequential writes of up to 520MB/s (with Intelligent TurboWrite technology), and sequential reads up to 550MB/s. Perfect for desktop and laptop PCs, the 500GB version of this speedy 2.5-inch SATA III drive is now going for S$199 on Shopee (U.P: S$219), and comes with 12 months warranty.
