Freaky Friday tech deals

The week is coming to a close and what better way to celebrate the advent of the weekend than to stock up on some pretty neat gadgets that have had their prices slashed. There’s nothing more satisfying than picking up a great bargain.

So let’s get started with today’s awesome deals:

  • Creative Muvo Mini Portable Speaker: It might look like a grate, but this little Bluetooth wonder goes further than most other speakers at this price point. At TechRadar, we rated this a full 5 out of 5. It’s weatherproof (tested up to IP66 standards), has a long battery life and excellent sound quality. The speaker even comes with a 3.5mm aux-in to connect to your audio devices. And the best part is it’s affordable at it usual retail price of $79.95, but you can get it for just $57 at EB Games.
  • UE Megaboom wireless speakers: These portable wireless speakers have been designed to pump out amazingly good sound in every direction. They have a wireless range of up to 100 feet with 20-hour battery life. And, what’s more, it’s waterproof. These speakers retail for around $350, but you can get it at Officeworks for $288, saving you up to $62.
  • Sennheiser HD 599 over-ear headphones: Sitting at the top of Sennheiser’s 500 series, this premium pair of over-ear cans has been touted to deliver amazing levels of audio and be comfortable to wear with larger ear cups and soft, replaceable ear pads. It retails for $399.95, but you can save $114.95 if you buy this online at Mwave for a sweet $285. But get to it fast as the deal ends on 19 February or while stocks last.
  • Netgear Orbi AC3000 Wi-Fi Router: Netgear claims this is the world’s first tri-band home Wi-Fi system to extend network range around the house and into the garden without compromising on the speed. It is said to eliminate dead zones, dropped connections and can reach 370 square metres across walls, stairs and doors. So, if you’ve been wanting to improve your home’s Wi-Fi connectivity, this might be the solution you need, and it’s available from Mwave for $579, saving you $90 on the usual RRP of $669.
  • Respawn Ninja 'KATANA' gaming PC: This one’s for the serious gamer. It’s an Mwave custom assembly and this pre-built PC features a brand-new GPU – with the mega powerful GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB) and a newly released Kaby Lake Intel i7 7700 quad core, 3.6GHz processor. That combination gives it plenty of oomph. Plus it’s been packaged within a limited edition Razer Cube case, giving it a turbo appearance to match the grunt under the hood. And, for a limited time, Mwave has discounted this to $2,199, saving you $406.94, down from its usual retail price of $2,605.94. This sale is on till stocks last or until 20 February, so hurry, as there are only 10 units available at the time of writing.

Until 5 March, Scorptec is offering this monitor for $299, down from its usual $389 RRP.
