As we coast towards the end of the working week, the TechRadar team has been busy digging out the best deals you should know about as we head into the weekend.
If you’re looking to upgrade your camera, or you’d just like to pick up a new hobby, then you’ll want to check out the excellent Fujifilm cameras we’ve highlighted below. They’re part of a 20% off sale at DigiDirect’s eBay store (opens in new tab), so head there if you want to see more discounted cameras.
There’s also a steeply discounted Dell XPS 13 (opens in new tab) to ponder – it’s the 2019 model, but we gave it a full five stars in our original review, so it comes highly recommended from the team if you want a svelte laptop for home working. Plenty more is available below, including a discounted Nintendo Switch for the gamers, Philips Hue lights for the smart home aficionados and cheap true wireless earbuds.
Fujifilm X-T4 (opens in new tab) (body only) | from AU$1,784.70 (RRP AU$2,299, save up to AU$514.30)
If you’re looking for the best mirrorless camera (opens in new tab), we think the Fujifilm X-T4 is the one to beat. It comes packing a class-leading 26.1MP APS-C sensor, and is equally great at shooting both stills and 4K video. This snapper is discounted for anyone with the code PDDT20, while eBay Plus members will get 22% off by entering the code PLUSDD22 at checkout.
Dell XPS 13 (7390) (opens in new tab) | i5 / 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD | AU$1,201 (RRP AU$1,899, save AU$698)
This is the 2019 edition of the delightful Dell XPS 13, which is why it’s available with such a huge discount. It’s outfitted with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor and a 256GB SSD for excellent performance. It’s slim and compact, so you shouldn’t have a problem taking this laptop with you wherever you go. This 35% saving is incredible to see, and it’s available on the silver version of the laptop when you enter the code LOVEKEANU at checkout.
Philips Hue White Ambiance starter kit (opens in new tab) | AU$99 (RRP AU$209, save AU$110)
Philips Hue light bulbs can completely overhaul the look and feel of your home lighting, and if you want to get started, this is a fantastic price on the White Ambiance starter kit. The bulbs can move between cool and warm whites, and they’re dimmable, so you can have a bright room or a candlelight feel in a heartbeat. This discounted starter pack comes with three B22 Bayonet cap (opens in new tab) bulbs and the Hue Bridge, and is available from Amazon.
Fujifilm X100V (opens in new tab) | from AU$1,394.70 (RRP AU$1,999, save up to AU$604.30)
The Fujifilm X100V is a brilliant compact camera with an emphasis on manual shooting. It’s equipped with a 26.1MP APS-C sensor which picks up vivid detail and realistic colours, while a much-improved autofocus system helps you capture those quick moments. Anyone can snap up this camera with a 20% discount on eBay with the code PDDT20, while Plus members get 22% off with the code PLUSDD22.
TicPods ANC (opens in new tab) | AU$93 (RRP AU$139, save AU$46)
The TicPods ANC do look like an AirPods imitation, but we’ve found them to be a great alternative in their own right. They come with active noise cancellation, and while it isn’t perfect, it does well enough considering the price point. Sound quality isn’t on par with much more expensive headphones, but they should do well for most casual listeners. Head to Mobvoi and save AU$46.
Dell 32-inch curved 4K monitor (S3221QS) (opens in new tab) | AU$418 (RRP AU$749, save AU$331)
This is the lowest price we’ve seen this expansive 4K monitor drop to. Stretching 32-inches, this curved monitor comes with ultra-thin bezels on three sides. It also supports HDR content and AMD FreeSync to smooth out any chance of screen tearing. There’s just over AU$330 to be saved when you buy from Dell, just use the code LOVEKEANU at checkout.
TicWatch Pro 3 (opens in new tab) | AU$382.50 (RRP AU$450, save AU$67.50)
The TicWatch Pro 3 is a little cheaper than top-tier smartwatches, and is an even better buy now with this discount directly from the maker. Its battery life is one of its standout features, and you’ll get three days of use out of this smartwatch from a single charge. It has a fast Snapdragon chipset onboard and a lovely high-res display. Buy directly from Mobvoi and save AU$67.
Xbox Wireless Controller (2020) (opens in new tab) | AU$78 (RRP AU$94.95, save AU$16.95)
The Xbox Wireless Controller is an updated version of the Xbox One gamepad, so it feels familiar in the hand. Improvements have been made to the design though, so it’s more ergonomic and comfortable to use. It works across a range of devices too, with compatibility on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Windows 10 and Android. Snag one in black (opens in new tab), red (opens in new tab), blue (opens in new tab) or white (opens in new tab) with a small saving from Amazon.
[EBAY PLUS EXCLUSIVE]
Dyson V11 Outsize (opens in new tab) | AU$999 (RRP AU$1,299, save AU$300)
The Dyson V11 Outsize goes big in every way. It’s got a 1.9-litre dustbin and wider cleaning head to capture more dust in less time, while saving you from emptying the bin halfway through. Its battery can last up to 60 minutes too, so if you’ve got a larger home, the V11 Outsize is one of the best vacuum cleaners (opens in new tab) you can buy. Now available from Bing Lee’s eBay store, with a AU$300 discount for Plus members.
[EBAY PLUS EXCLUSIVE]
Samsung T5 Portable SSD (1TB) (opens in new tab) | AU$129 (RRP AU$229, save AU$100)
We are huge fans of the Samsung T5 Portable SSD, and that’s because it’s highly compact and incredibly fast.
