DVD-2500BTCI Blu-ray Player

4portavcables.jpg

Some of us still haven't gone past our old VCRs and TVs and the mess in the back of our equipment is mind-boggling. For us, there is a simple solution, a 4-port audio/video switch from Cables To Go. The front panel of the Composite Audio/Video Explorer has easy access for camcorders, games systems or other A/V and because no external power is needed, you can connect multiple systems. The connector has 8 RCA audio and 4 video composite inputs, and 2 audio and one composite output. At a mini size of 8.8 x 5.8 x 2", it has a mini-price of $17.19.

avatarbg.jpg

What better way to start the week than with a super deal. For $38.99 you can have 13 months of Xbox 360 Live Gold, a service that usually goes for $50.00 for a year. This means you get multi-player games online, voice/video chat, and of course the Xbox 360 Video Markeplace with movies (including Netflix if you have that,) TV shows and music videos. Better take advantage of this one now before they decide to retract the generous offer.

Find Cheap Cables For Just About Anything


ethernet%2Bcrossover%2Bcable.jpg


One of the things we have to deal with on a constant basis is buying more cables to hook up the increasing number of devices we seem to be collecting at an alarming rate. It always drives us nuts going down to the local electronics store only to find them selling the gold plated special edition cable for 50 bucks. You know and we know that 99% of these high end cables are pure hype, but with little other choice we end up having to buy them anyways. Well thanks to a tipster( thanks dave ) we have found the holy grail of cheap cables. Ladies and gentlemen, behold Monoprice Cables.

Our jaw dropped when we saw some of these prices. We recently needed to buy some component cables quickly so we ended up at a local, unnamed, electronic store only to find the cheapest one they were selling was 30 bucks. Since we were short on time and figured all the other stores in the area would pretty much be the same we gave in. We knew we just got ripped off, but we didn't have time to fight it. Well just a quick glance at MonoPrice will show you cables for 7 bucks! 7!!! I wish I had found this site about a year ago, I would have saved a ton of money. Anyway, we hope we have saved some of you some of that hard earned cash. Enjoy!

Free Overnight Shipping From Sonos


sonos.jpg


Well for those that have yet to buy that special gift and are dreading the cost of shipping it in time for Christmas you are in luck. Sonos is offering free overnight shipping if you order in the next 2 days. We had reviewed the Sonos in the past and found it to be an amazing music streamer that would make any music aficionado smile from ear to ear.

Some people seem to have a problem with the price of the Sonos system, well those people surely haven't had a chance to test one out. We were blown away with how polished the system was and how easy it was to setup and stream your music. If you have someone special that you still need to get a gift for and they love music and you have a few extra bucks kicking around then the Sonos bundle will make an excellent gift. It even got third place on our top 7 list! Happy shopping.

Sonos ZoneBridge BR100 Shipping


sonos-controller.jpg


So the Sonos ZoneBridge BR100 is shipping from Amazon and for those that own the Sonos system you are in luck. This cheap( $100 ) add-on to your system will allow you to extend the Sonos network in your house without the need to buy the more expensive ZonePlayer. The ZoneBridge has Ethernet ports on the back that will allow you to hook it up to a multitude of devices that you can pull music from, above and beyond your already functioning ZonePlayer setup.

One of the beauties of the ZoneBridge is the ease in which you can extend your Sonos network. For 100 bucks you can add one of these somewhere remote in your home and enjoy music places you thought would always be silent.

On top of all of this they have also rolled out a new firmare (2.5) that adds the ability to hook into the Napster platform as well as Best Buy's Digital Music store. There are some other nice features in the upgrade as well that cover connectivity and browsing. Anyone that owns a Sonos system already should really check out the new firmware as it looks to be a very nice upgrade.

Free Sonos Charging Cradle with Sonos Bundle 130 Purchase


sonos_bundle_130.jpg


Sonos has a great deal going on right now. If you buy their Sonos Bungle 130 they are going to throw in a free charging cradle for the remote. If you haven't read our review of this product you should jump here and check it out. It was such an amazing device to play with. We were very sad when we had to send it back.

If there is someone in your life that has been extra special good this year and loves music you should set them up with the Sonos Bundle. It will change the way they listen to their music and they will be forever grateful. Granted it is fairly pricey, but this is a product that will last years and allow for a lot of quality time listening to music and maybe a little less time watching TV.

We have owned one for awhile now and after some tweaking we love what it can do for us. It has changed the way we think about watching movies. Having your entire library at your fingertips without needing to find a disc or worry about a if the disc happens to be scratched is a great thing. Now you can enjoy your entire video collection in one device. Go check out their site and pick one up. Don't forget you need to use this link to get the rebate form to realized the discount.

We hope someone takes advantage of this deal cause we feel like any geek would love this product. It isn't without its warts, but it will fulfill many peoples wishes for a media streamer.

Great Deal on Maxtor Shared Storage II 320 Hard Drive

maxtorSharedStorage320.jpg


We are always on the lookout for great deals on anything that can help us with our media streaming. Well as anyone that has spent any time on this site knows, we are storage junkies. We keep buying more and more storage. We have never maxed out our home storage network and we intend to keep it that way. Well as we were looking around we came across some great deals on a Maxtor NAS. This sucker has a lot of great things going for it. It comes with a Gig network hookup, 7200 rpm 320Gb hard drive and two USB ports to allow for expansion whether it be another hard drive or a printer to share with the rest of the computers on your network.

What makes us like this drive even more is that it supports UPnP so it will play nice with all of our media streamers in the house. We love the idea of having a low power device serving up all of our media so we can keep our power hungry PCs off. Even if you don't intend to use it to stream media you can enjoy the fact that this NAS device will add 320Gb of storage to your network in a snap. Just plug it in and you have instantly added a nice backup solution for all of your media. It comes with some one touch software so you can have it backup certain folders at the push of a button. If you don't already have a backup solution this would be a perfect fit.
