Deals: 10-17-08

UPDATED: Iris suggested that I include detailed descriptions of the items I put here so I will try to do that. I think of those things when I select them but I've never thought to add that info here. Lets see how it goes.

Not much that caught my eye this weekend unfortunately.

Fry's

1TB Seagate SATA drive $150 (A 1 terrabyte Serial ATA hard drive by a manufacturer I trust at a great price. Make sure your PC supports SATA AND HD sizes up to 1 terrabyte before you purchase this.)
360/PS3 Saint's Row 2 $53 (A sequel to a great sandbox game. If you like Grand Theft Auto, you will like this game. 82% metacritic average score as of today.)
360/PS3 Star Wars: The Force Unleashed $50 (An OK Star Wars action game with a GREAT supporting storyline connecting Episodes II and III from the movies. Low to mid 70% metacritic average score.)

Woot!
4GB Micro SD with adapter $11 Delivered. (Many cell phones use this memory format. If you have a relatively new phone that plays MP3's, look under your batter or on the side for the MicroSD logo. You can expand the amount of storage capacity with this.)

Newegg

Logitech Laptop Mouse $25 shipped! (Good brand name for computer hardware peripherals. Cheap price delivered is great for students or travellers. Use coupon code MOUSE1073 for $3 off.)

When you write these deal blogs, would you be willing to also describe why these items are useful? I mean I look at them and I understand some, but others I just don't.
Like the 1TB Seagate SATA drive $150? Is that the one you were talking about for your camera? I am not sure.
As for the games, maybe you can post a review (1 paragraph) or a quick description on why it's a good deal?
Thanks again for posting your finds. You're very kind ^__^

What the?! Saints Row 2 is out already? I didn't even know!

Oh and by the way, I just found a nice website, it is http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/. Everyday, they give away a different licensed software for free. If you're a nerd like me, I'm sure you'll like this website :P

>Farhan: Yeah SR2 came out last week. Normally that would have been a must buy for me but we're trying to save some cash.

Pretty cool website but I would be careful with free apps. They tend to be full of spyware. Be sure to scan regularly if you install this stuff.

how do you know if a sigt has spyware? Thanks

HektikLyfe said...

Well there is no true way to know for sure but there are ways to detect it.

Pop-ups aren't always a hint but sometimes they do give it away. Keep your internet browser security updated and NEVER browse the internet without some sort of anti-spyware AND anti-virus app protecting you.

I recommend McAfee, Webroot, AVG or Lavasoft products.

My experience with Kaspersky Internet Security has been very good too! Thats what I have on my tablet pc, it runs smoothly in the background and constantly keeps scanning my system and it updates its database automatically every hour.

I've never heard of that one but CNet gave it a respectable rating.

Farhan said...

Yeah I had never heard of it either, but that was the only one I found that was for sure compatible with Vista. Good thing it turned out to be decent.
