The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. My husband Richard is heading back to school in a couple weeks to finish his degree. He's been in college a few times, but life always got in the way and he was unable to complete his schooling. We're finally at a place where he can take his classes and be able to get a better job. This means we'll need to stock up on school supplies much like the rest of the nation around this time of year. He bought pens, paper, folders and binders as well as picked up his books. He'll also need a laptop - which he's super excited about - as well as reliable, portable storage. A flash drive is pretty essential to most students, ensuring they can save their projects and papers and tote them around between home, school, or even work. A trusted brand of flash drives and memory cards is SanDisk and Richard's favorite place to pick up all his technology needs is Best … [Read more...]

Win Movie Tickets with Online Bingo

I have always loved playing online bingo. There are so many things about this game that constantly captivates me. One of the most recent developments with a site that I regularly play at gave me the opportunity to win free movie tickets. We all know how expensive it is getting just to watch a movie in a theater. Forget the cost of the ticket alone, buying your popcorn and soda itself costs just as much. If I had the chance of watching the latest of movies one after the other, I would probably just camp out there. So as you can see, watching movies delights me just as much as playing a game online would. Having the privilege of having both these pleasures served to me on one plate was a chance I wasn’t going to miss. The site that I am taking about here that is running this particular promotion is In the ‘Bingo Your Way to the Cinemas’ promo, players are requested to buy tickets to the site’s Buckingham Palace room and make patterns. These patterns change on a … [Read more...]

Solo™ by 3DR at Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. My Dad had a remote control helicopter when I was younger. It was a lot of fun to watch him fly it! I never tried myself, I most likely would have crashed it. These days technology has advanced in leaps and bounds and I know he would love to try the new Solo™ by 3DR. This thing is seriously cool! It's your own personal drone, capable of capturing live HD video and amazing photos with GoPro cameras. The Solo hit Best Buy stores on June 8 and retail for $999. That might seem a bit pricey, but can you imagine the breath taking imagery you could capture? This is the first ever drone to be powered by integrated Linux computers, one in the drone itself and the other in the controller. They are connected with a dedicated Wi-Fi signal. Speaking of controllers, this isn't the bulky, clunky old RC style. They have been redesigned with gamers and … [Read more...]

The LG G4 Debuts at Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. My husband has an iPhone, but I've always preferred Androids. I'm especially a fan of LG phones. I currently have an LG Volt and while it isn't the newest model and has a crack down the screen, it has always done everything I've need it to do. It's dependable and fast. I'm sure I would squeal like a kid in a candy shop to have the new LG G4, but until my old phone finally quits on me, an upgrade isn't in the cards. The LG G4 has all the features I've come to know and love with my Volt, but they are improved upon and enhanced. The changes have been made focusing on three specifics: the camera, the display, and the design. Obviously we want our smartphones to take phenomenal photos - even on the fly - and the display needs to be amazing whether we're reading emails, playing a game, or streaming Netflix. The design is also important, the phone … [Read more...]

What is SUHD? Find Out at Best Buy

You've probably heard the term SUHD floating around lately or 4K television, but do you know what it is? It's the latest advancement in television design and it's pretty awesome. The Samsung 4K SUHD TV is powered by a revolutionary panel featuring Nano-crystal technology. Sounds fancy, right? It is. Everything you see is brighter, crisper, and more detailed. I don't know about you, but I spend a good amount of time watching tv and movies with family and viewing both on the 4K TV is stunning. With 4 times the resolution of full HD, the SUHD presents more lifelike pictures with a wider range of colors. Those colors are deepened and more contrasted with improved black levels, and further enhanced with the Peak Illuminator Pro. With 8.3 million pixels, this type of viewable content is unrivaled. The totally cool part is that the SUHD uses a multi-step process part of Samsung's exclusive upscaling technology that converts movies, shows, and sports from any channel, Blu-ray payer or … [Read more...]
