Kogan launches into home appliance market

Kogan adds microwaves, vacuums and espresso machines to its range of products

Australian consumer electronics vendor Kogan is once again challenging major retailers such as Harvey Norman and Bing Lee by moving into the home appliance space.

Kogan Technologies, which recently waged an ‘LED TV price war’ against competitors in the Australian electronics market, has added a range of microwaves, vacuums and espresso machines to its inventory.

“The products that we launch are a response to people’s demand. We have received a lot of e-mails from people, saying ‘We feel like we’re getting ripped off on certain products,'” said Ruslan Kogan, founder and CEO of Kogan Technologies.

“Low prices indicate what our business is all about," said Kogan, adding that the new line of products is in direct competition with offerings from brands such as Panasonic, Sharp, Dyson and Breville.

“Our competitors sell 3-in-one microwaves for around $700; we sell them for $199... the Kogan business model targets smart shoppers,” he said.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
