These are deals that I see as excellent value, and a useful service to my readers to pick out. B&H is having a series of new deals every day, so I scan the list when things change for things that pique my interest and/or seem particularly good deals.
See also most popular products bought as gifts at various price levels. The $1000+ category and $500 - $1000 category are interesting, being dominated by Apple and Sony.
- Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Mid 2014) 21% / $500 off. This is a very nice laptop suitable even for high-end use. Not as fast a flash drive as the latest 2015 model (yet faster than the 2013 model I use myself!). It’s $500 less costly than the equivalent 2015 model.
- XRite ColorChecker Passport 50% off or X-Rite ColorMunki Display 35% off or X-Rite ColorMunki Photo Color Management Solution 30% off.
- Impact One Monolight Kit (120VAC) 33% off. Handy for home portraits and such.
- Bushnell Trail cameras (motion sensing, weatherproof, etc) 40% off. Troublesome privacy implications (“other hunters” and such), but interesting product.
- Celestron LandScout 60mm Spotting Scope Backpack Kit (fun gift for a kid?)
- Samsung 2TB 850 Evo 2.5" SATA III SSD $100 off. That’s a lot of storage in one 2.5" drive; 4 of them would make a whopping 8TB of SSD storage in an OWC Thunderbay 4 Mini.
- ION Audio iPA77 Tailgater Wireless Bluetooth Rechargeable Speaker System 44% off. I could use something like this with a 24" subwoofer plus a “diesel truck engines” CD for the enjoyment of my neighbors who run noisy pool cleaners and such when I’m trying to sleep.
Ongoing deals :
