Tech Talk: Affordable Tech Gifts for Christmas

Posted on: December 2, 2008

Can you believe it’s already December? I can’t believe how fast time flew!

Like a majority of people in the world, I am strapped for cash this year in terms of gift giving. So I’ve decided that I will provide information on some affordable technology must-haves for the season. Keep in mind these gifts might seem pricey now, but just imagine the ROI and longevity you’ll get from them. AND this is a great gift to give to a couple or a family.

The first of the series is a Blu-ray player. After winning the HD format war against HD DVD Players, it’s only natural to purchase a Blu-ray player. Below are three affordable players and links for online purchasing (full descriptions and specs are on the store websites:

One of Circuit City deals on Blu-ray players. It upconverts standard DVDs and even has an SD Card slot. Get this play for $249.99.

Do you have any other Blu-ray players to recommend? Please share!

MaR_Advice: Definitely hit up stores that are going out of business to purchase tech items, like Circuit City. They usually have a better sale and want to get rid of their items quick!
