picked up two of the Samsung's LCD 17" (715V). At $299 I thought they were a good deal but I don't see much chatter about them on these forums. FS had about 100 and they all went in about 2hrs... Set one up and it looks good...

I don't think that stinkin' Inova X5 can compare to my Elektrolumens XM-3 ;) . Lumidleds Luxeon PWNED Nichia LEDs...

btw where do you buy that, and how much?

Flasha... wha? CP.. who?

Yo, I personally think the Nuwaii Q-III is a more solid light than the XM-3.

First off, Inova lights are the greatest!!!

Best place to get them isnt in Canada. Its from www.newgraham.com, they have some of the best prices in the US, also they are quite comfortable with shipping to Canada, I buy tons of toys from them, if you call talk to Mike.

As for deals.....

I bought a Harmony remote from FS on Christmas eve for $99.99, and with the timing I should be able to use the $40 MIR from Logitech.

Not much else I got online as of yet, although I may get a UPS from Bestbuy and a Power Supply from <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=147 target=_blank>Tiger Direct</a>.

On Boxing day I went shopping and got the following.

FS - Lexar 1GB SD Card 79.99 after MIR

Staples - Two USB 802.11G Wireless NICs 29.98 ea.

Sata Computers - Dlink 604 Router 14.98 (Everyone else was $9.99 after MIR, I didnt want to wait for another MIR)
Also, a 200 GB SATA drive and two DVD Burners.

Not sure what else I shall need at this point. I have to check the Mastercard balance before I get too much more carried away.

Bought the ATI 9600XT AIW card from FS.ca for $200 and NHL 2005 from BB.ca for $20.

---------------------------------

For sale: Unopened XFX GeForce 6600 GT for only $275 - $10 under my exact cost. <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28 target=_blank>NCIX</a> sells it for $310 plus taxes!
NCIX product link
[reason? too much card for me, I'm not a gamer and I'd rather have the multi-media features on the AIW card instead of the speed of the 6600]

-long sleeved tees from Mexx and Zara.

-Logitech Webcam from FS

-Blank CD-R's from FS


and last but not least(actually it is least)

A Centrios 3.1 Mega Pixel Digital Camera for $99.99 (regular price was $149.99) at <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=126 target=_blank>Radioshack</a>

This has got to be one of the worst digital camera ever. The quality sucks, I can't change the lighting/EV levels and the driver was for Win 98 only! I spelt 30 minutes on the net and finally found a driver for Win XP. The quality of the pictures are sub-par, only slightly better than my $24.99 webcam from FS.

I wish I did my homework before I went out today. Anyone know <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=127 target=_blank>Radioshack's</a> policy of items bought on Boxing Day? Are they refundable, exchangeable?

Well, where should I start. This certainly has been a shopping spree of a boxing day for me:

250G WD HD from FS
Canon i960 printer from FS
Logitech X-230 speakers from Stooples.
4-port 2.0 USB Hub from London Drugs
1 pair of Asics runner from <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=131 target=_blank>Sport Mart</a>
2 Adidas gym bags from <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=131 target=_blank>Sport Mart</a>
1 jacket from Roots (by the way, they had 40% off lowest ticket price at Roots).
A couple of tropical fishies to populate the aquarium.

... and somewhere in there I had to buy a boxing day lunch to get store-hopping energy :D

Still wanted to buy more, but had to resist. Eddie Bauer had an extra 50% off all clearance clothing and GAP had a wool jacket for $100. Of course, some stores will continue to advertise tempting boxing week deals for the next few days. Must resist, must resist, must resist....

1 pair of K-Swiss white sneakers
1 pair of white Adidas sneakers
2 Phonemate 5.8 ghz phones
1 BenQ X730 wireless keyboard/mouse combo
1 Logitech MX Duo combo
1 spindle of 50 Ritek DVD-r 8x
1 Sandisk 1gb USB 2.0 drive
1 Mitsumi floppy/multimedia card reader (CF/SD/MS etc.)

I was looking for a nice jacket but I couldn't find anything...same with jeans.

Not a bad Boxing Day though...FS -> PC -> Bay -> Robson -> Sears -> Metro. Left the house at 5am and came home at 6pm hah.

Not a bad way of spending 3.5 bills.
