Logitech Harmony 880 Universal Remote Control

Since we can’t stop raving about the Logitech Harmony 880 Remote Control, we’re happy to pass along a couple of great deals which we hope may push some of you to finally upgrade. As a reminder, the 880 is a fully programmable universal remote control with a color screen and a charging dock. Thanks to a built in USB port, the 880 can sync with Logitech’s online programming application which contains codes for 150,000 devices, meaning no need for you to create manual macros.

Enough of the talk, now to the great deals. Amazon is selling the 880 for $153.99 and they are offering a $30 rebate if you purchase between 11/28 and 12/4. From what we can see, this is by far the lowest price on the market for a new 880. If you’re not crazy about rebates, consider eCost, which is selling the remote for $149 and you can save $10 by using Google Checkout. If you choose the eCost route, you may want to hurry because supplies are limited.

Zune: “We’re Number 2!”

File under: Amazon, Apple iPod and iPhone, eCost, Google Checkout, Microsoft Zune, Music, News of the Day, Shopping News

Microsoft Zune

Looks like Microsoft’s much maligned Zune may have done better this week than most of us expected. During it’s launch week, the Zune captured a 9% market share and a 13% dollar spent share in the portable media player market. These numbers may not seem high (consider iPod dominated at 63% and 72.5%) but they do mean that for this initial period, the Zune became the number 2 device behind the iPod. Before Microsoft execs pop the Champagne, they should remember that this was the product launch week so interest and promotions gave the product a boost.

If you’re interested in buying a Zune, so far it appears as if eCost wins the price battle with the brown and black Zunes in stock for $233.99 and the white Zune for $229.99. Don’t forget to use and get another $10 off. Amazon is a close second with all three colors selling for $239.99.

Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD

Last week we told you about a great price on Toshiba’s XA1 HD-DVD Player. That player has a little brother and we found it at an even more affordable $395 on eCost.

The Toshiba A1 HD-DVD Player outputs HD resolutions of 720p or 1080i for both HD-DVDs and standard DVDs (upconvert) using its HDMI output. Other ports include S-Video, Composite, Coax Digital, Optical, Component, USB, and Ethernet. Audio playback uses built in multi-channel decoders for Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD (2ch), DTS and DTS-HD.

If you are ready to move up to the next level of digital entertainment, this may be a good affordable entry point.

Where to Find 2GB USB Flash Drives for Under $50

File under: Computer, eCost, J&R, TigerDirect, USB Flash Drives

We recently purchased a 2GB USB flash drive to backup some of our data. After enjoying the drive for a few days, we realized that there are quite a few options out there and prices (as low as $25) are making these products even more desirable.

After going through the inventory of several major hardware retailers, we have narrowed down to a selection of what we feel are the best values on the market today. We focused on 2GB drives because they are the largest size drive you can buy for under $50. There are great affordable 1GB drives, but the cost to move up from to 2GB is very small.
