7 technology bargains that are really worthwhile!

Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Amazon Prime Day: These days, online retailers and electronics giants are promoting particularly large discounts. If you do not want to wait for those few days of the year, this is the place for you: TECHBOOK goes through the bargain jungle for you and puts together the best offers every week.

That makes a good bargain

Large percentages do not always speak for a good offer. Often the starting price is based on the usually very high, non-binding price recommendation (RRP) of the manufacturers, so that the discount looks particularly large. In fact, other traders often offer the device at the same or even cheaper prices. TECHBOOK therefore only includes bargains in the comparison that really offer the lowest price of all traders.

Another criterion is the quality of the product. Real bargains must also be something. That’s why TECHBOOK only presents articles that have convinced a large number of other users in terms of features and usability, or those that the editors have already tested themselves and found to be good.

Two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort are available for connecting to the PC. With 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color spectrum, the Acer has a very good color rendition.

The Roomba i7158 of the iRobot vacuum cleaner robot is packed with technologies such as acoustic and optical dirt detection and precise room navigation, so there is no dust left over anywhere.

However, the Roomba i7518 has the newer iAdapt 3.o system, which virtually stores objects in the room to track where it has already been drawn and where it still needs to be vacuumed.

At Media Markt there is the vacuum cleaner robot for 699 euros. This is best price and a whole 150 euros cheaper than the next best provider.

Solid State Drive Memory (SSD) is getting cheaper and therefore belongs in every PC. Not only does the fast memory reduce boot time, but programs load faster and the operating system responds more promptly to input. TECHBOOK therefore recommends that SSDs should generally be used on new PCs and that new life should be given to older desktops and laptops at a decent speed. This SSD from Kingston has only seven millimeters of height and thus fits into very compact housing. With up to 500 megabytes per second (MB / s) read speed and 450 MB / s write speed, the SSD is still relatively fast on the road.

✔ Start up, load and transfer files quickly
✔ Different storage capacities
✔ Fast and durable

At Reichelt Electronics, the SSD is currently available for € 42.95 including shipping. This is the cheapest price since its release and at least three euros cheaper than the competition.

You have to know that about bargains

Pay attention during shopping on possible shipping costs, which are still on the purchase price on it. Not all dealers offer basically free shipping.

Often there are the offers at other dealers, especially Amazon constantly scans the market and adjust the prices of its products to those of the competition. It works the other way round too. If you find a cheap price on the internet, confront your local dealer with it and ask for the same discount. Especially with large electronics markets, this strategy is promising. You may also save shipping costs. In addition, it is worthwhile to use even before the purchase once a comparison portal such as Idealo.de * or Geizhals.de and to see if the product is still cheaper elsewhere.
