2020 Christmas tech dealsSyah Ismail
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone but retailers have quietly added new discounts on big tech items in the run-up to Christmas. Christmas is less than two weeks away, so it’s time to get cracking on your Christmas shopping list. Particularly if you’re planning to buy your gifts online this year, it’s well and truly time to get started.
While there’s plenty of buzz around the year’s new gaming consoles, the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, they’ll be hard to come by this December. Instead, you’ll be better off getting something that can help bring your friends and family together. At the end of the day, isn’t that what Christmas is all about.
Why not get a video cam? With everyone in lockdown during this Covid-19 pandemic, it would be great to see and hear from your loved ones. The Logitech MeetUp is a good choice for this particular purpose.
The MeetUp is an attractive, modern, professional-looking camera with a black, rounded case that can complement any décor. If you need to meet with loved ones who are in a cramped space regularly, the MeetUp is the perfect device because of its wide 120-degree field of view that features pan-tilt-zoom functionality. To control that pan-tilt-zoom function, there’s a nifty remote that’s square with a non-slippery base and measures 0.375 by 3.25 by 3.25 inches. The remote uses RF, so you don’t have to worry about aiming it at a receiver on the main unit or about something or someone blocking it; another thoughtful touch for use in cramped spaces. It has a terrific mic and speaker audio which features background noise suppression and acoustic echo cancellation.
The system is certified for use with Skype for Business and Cisco Jabber and offers enhanced integration with BlueJeans, Broadsoft, LifeSize Cloud, Vidyo, and Zoom. That support includes the ability for remote participants to control the camera. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about compatibility issues.
For Christmas, Alomos has not one but two Logitech MeetUp combo deals.
The first combo features the MeetUp along with a Jabra 810 MS mic and a Heckler tripod mount. With more than S$350 worth of savings, it is a steal!.
Combo B is designed to extend the reach of your video call with the help of a MeetUp Mic. The S$1,625 price tag is a bargain if you consider the normal asking price.
The most important thing to do when considering whether something is a good deal is to ask yourself: “Would I still want and buy this if it was full price?” Often the answer may be no which means you need to think whether you’re saving money with a discount or wasting it caught up in the excitement of a sale.
