For the second week of December I’m giving away a Boblov X6 action cam and accessories. This contest is open to USA and Canada (except where prohibited).
My recommendation, if you’re looking at an Allwinner camera, is to stay vigilant and read the specs very carefully so you don’t get ripped off. The V3 is bundled with one of two image sensors: an OV4689, which has the best image quality out of the box despite only being 4MP, or an IMX179 which is 8MP and generally has more mediocre image quality. The V3S on the other hand is being bundled with one of two sensors: a GC2023, which is 2MP, and not even high enough resolution for 1080p let alone 4K, or the OV2720 which is also 2MP but can do 1080p resolution. At the price point of these cameras, it’s worth spending the extra $10 – $20 to get something with far more capable specs instead of cheaping out.
For the first week of December I’m giving away the Insta360 true panoramic camera for Android phones, courtesy of Gearbest.com. Since it’s coming from Gearbest, this giveaway is open to anyone in any country that they ship to, except if your location prohibits you from entering contests like this.
This is a list of coupons and tech deals I have found on Gearbest for 2017. I regularly update this list when I find new coupons and deals and delete old ones. If you notice anything that is out of date, please let me know! These items ship from overseas, so make sure you’re comfortable importing yourself and know our 7 tips for buying from overseas.
This webcam is a bit of an odd case, with a giant LED light on the front. Unfortunately the LED light did exactly the opposite of what I expected it to.
This camera is going to stay in my car, at least until my A119S arrives and I’ll do some comparisons between the two cams then. Vantrue has produced a cam with a nice body and decent video quality. I just wish it came in a super capacitor model so that people in extreme climates wouldn’t have to worry about taking the camera out of their car at night and could permanently install it.
The Archeer A109 is fully waterproof, but due to its small size the sound it produces isn’t a huge improvement over many modern smartphone speakers. If all you care about is adding more volume to your listening experience this speaker will be fine but my advice is to invest in something a bit bigger – especially if you want real bass.
After further flying I would not recommend this quadcopter. Spending a little bit more money will net you with something that has a longer battery life and better handling.
This vacuum has good performance cleaning on hard floors and thin carpet. It’s made cleaning a lot easier as I can get other things done while the vacuum is doing its thing. If you’ve got carpet I’d recommend buying the iLife A4, but if you’ve got primarily hard flooring this little guy will do the trick. It won’t replace a traditional vacuum for those hard to reach areas or dusting up high, but it does make life a lot easier.
A couple times a year there are big holidays in China which mean massive sales from Chinese sellers. Later this week is 11.11, also known as singles day, which is basically China’s equivalent of Black Friday sales. It is the biggest sale day of the year so this will likely be the cheapest prices on import tech until 2018 and Chinese New Year.
