Cheap storage, camcorders and routers galore

  • [[artnid:338054|Millenius eMperor 40" Full HD LCD TV]]

    Price: $749

    This Millennius eMperor LCD TV is a 40in model with a Samsung-manufactured panel. It's not the best television for watching Blu-ray movies, but it does have a low price tag in its favour — it has the same screen size but is almost $50 less than the [[artnid:335763|Soniq QSL400XT]]. Check it out on the [[xref:|Millennius Web site]].
  • [[artnid:298985|Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray player]]

    Price: $249 (save $300)

    The [[artnid:298985|Panasonic DMP-BD60]] ranks among the best Blu-ray players you can buy today, and has many useful features like a USB port and SD card slot. The Panasonic DMP-BD60 is [[xref:|currently available at Bing Lee for $249]] -- less than half the price of the original RRP.
  • Netgear ReadyNAS Duo NAS device

    Price: $399 (Save $70)

    Network-attached storage devices are a great way to store all of your media, personal files and computer backups in one central location, but they can be expensive and a little hard to use. If you don't want to spend an arm and a leg — but want something more capable than basic options like [[Artnid:326576|Netgear's Stora|Review: Netgear Stora (MS2110) NAS device]] or the [[Artnid:301654|Linksys by Cisco Media Hub range|Review: Linksys by Cisco Media Hub NMH405 network-attached storage device]] — then check out Netgear's ReadyNAS Duo. It's small and allows you to add your own disks, while providing some of the advanced functionality found in [[Artnid:321904|Netgear's high-end options|Review: Netgear ReadyNAS NVX NAS device]]. Better yet, you can save $70 off the $469 RRP when you purchase it [[xref:|from Officeworks]].
  • [[artnid:327833|Edimax nLite Wireless 3G Broadband Router (3G-6200n)]]

    Price: $99 (save: $50)

    Get yourself the Edimax nLite Wireless 3G Broadband Router if you want an inexpensive wireless router that can distribute a wired broadband connection as well as a 3G connection. Because it uses nLite, it's not a true 802.11n router — it will only run at 150 megabits per second rather than 300Mbps, but it's compatible with 802.11n wireless devices. It has a failover function which can switch to a 3G connection if the wired connection breaks, which is very handy in a home office environment. [[xref:|EYO]] currently has it for $99, which is $50 off the original price, and we think that's a bargain.
  • [[artnid:279071|Sony DCR-SR47 digital camcorder]]

    Price: $446 (Save $303)

    The [[artnid:279071|Sony DCR-SR47 digital camcorder]] is a great standard-definition camcorder that will satisfy most casual users. With oodles of inbuilt storage and a user-friendly 60x optical zoom, it represents great value for money. Originally retailing for $746, the Sony DCR-SR47 can be picked up at [[xref:|JB Hi-Fi for $446]] -- that's a saving of $303. [Note: this offer is only available until 22 March.]
  • [[artnid:305210|HTC Magic with Google smartphone]]

    Price: Free on $29 cap over 24 months

    These days, every man and his dog has an [[artnid:309245|iPhone]]. If you want to be different, or you just can't stand to be thought of as an Apple fan boy, HTC's Magic with Google smartphone is a great choice. Though it's been on the market for quite a while, Vodafone is currently offering it for [[xref:|free on a $29 cap plan]]. We think that's a fantastic deal.

  • [[artnid:336987|Samsung R580 notebook]]

    Price: $1152.60

    Samsung's R580 is a desktop replacement laptop that's very well built, feels good to use, and is very fast as it uses a Core i5-520M CPU. You can use it for just about any task except serious gaming. Despite being so big, it's not overly heavy and you can carry it in a backpack without much trouble at all. [[xref:|Techbuy]] currently has the 15.6in version of the R580 for $1152.60, which is $146 lower than the price of the 16in model we reviewed.

    [[Artnid:321614|Canon's PIXMA MP640 inkjet multifunction|Review: Canon PIXMA MP640 inkjet multifunction]] is a versatile addition to any family home or home office. It has Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, and it can print photos directly from USB flash drives.

  • [[artnid:329709|TomTom XXL 540 GPS unit]]

    Price: $291 (Save: $58)

    Though Garmin's new nuvi range is currently our favorite collection of GPS units, TomTom is certainly not far behind and the XXL 540 should be near the top of anyone's list. Boasting a massive 5in screen, the XXL 540 provides an excellent overall navigation experience. [[xref:|Jb-Hi Fi is currently selling]] the relatively new XXL 540 for $291, saving your $58 off the RRP.
