If you think the only receivers you can get for $200 or below are crappy, think again. Right now famed audio equipment manufacturer Harman Kardon’s AVR 1700 surround receiver is only $200 at Best Buy. No coupons and no mail-in rebate business to delay or complicate your $100 savings off the next best price. This receiver features built-in AirPlay compatibility, a USB port to accommodate an iDevice, and DLNA and Internet radio streaming. You’ll have to hook up to your network via Ethernet, but that’s a small sacrifice to make for these features at this price (and honestly, it’s more reliable anyway).
If you’re a fan of the Call of Duty franchise, you may be interested in the Logitech Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Gaming Keyboard & Mouse combo today from the retailer 1SaleADay. You get the Call of Duty themed Logitech G9x mouse and Logitech G105 keyboard for $52.99, free shipping. If you bought both at their best prices online separately they would cost $76.
If your friends finally got you convinced to start chatting on Skype but you need a cheap webcam, look no further than today’s Deal of the Day at Daily Steals. It’s a Microsoft LifeCam, which was a popular well-reviewed webcam back in 2008. A bit dated, but otherwise the only downside is that it lacks 1080p resolution. For ten bucks, it really is a good option.
