Christmas Gift Suggestions: 9 Gifts to a Techie Friend, Gamer or Photographer

December 19, 2011

I am no techie so a little wonder trick of technology amazes me. What is more amazing is to be presented with 9 awesome tech gadgets and accessories from well-known brands. I was glad to have attended the Brands that Click 2011 last December 5th at the Astoria Plaza, despite colds and fever – and bed weather. Read about my new discoveries:

1. Archos

The first time I encountered the brand – in a group-buying site and it is on sale! I regret not buying the deal because I found out that Archos is a UK brand and has good specs –  Archos G9 Tablet Powered 3.2 Andoid 3.2 Honeycomb with 10.1″ and 8″ display, 1.5 GHz dual core A9 OMAP 4 ARM Cortex processor, up to 250GB HDD memory. The numbers are pretty intimidating, but the best thing is that it is 3G ready, and you can just buy a dongle separately, and use like a new unit.

2. Asus

Asus introduces the Asus Eee Pad Transformer which is like a real “transformer” – use it like a pad/tablet, or with keyboard like a normal laptop/netbook. It even won the Gadget of the Year and Design of the Year at 2011 Stuff Gadget Awards. 

It is light and easy to dock! Great for presentations and for people like me who still prefers key pad and key boards!

3. JBL 

JBL the trusted brand in speakers has been in the market for 65 years showcased their audio products – from desktop speakers and JBL On Tour Micro. I love that their speakers are not just in boring silver casings, but fun, colorful shapes too. Someone won a new set of speakers!

4. SanDisk

It is the Photographers’ brand of choice for memory cards. Now, here is the new best friend of photographers and photo enthusiasts – the SanDisk memory card which is water-proof. See it for yourself:

And the Sandisk Memory Vault which is said that can preserve your pictures for over 100 years. Isn’t that amazing?

5. BenQ

BenQ which stands for the company slogan “Bringing Enjoyment and Quality to Life” with 244+ international design awards. Anyone would be delighted to receive a BenQ LCD monitor this Christmas.

6. Kingston

Now its spec is too technical for me to write about, but the bottom line is that it becomes more innovative and  yes, bigger.

7. Cooler Master

Here’s an ideal gift for all those who use laptops – it is useful and chic too! Comes in different designs!

8. Razer

Gamers might be familiar with the brand and yes, it makes the gaming experience more fun, real and entertaining. A nice headset can be given as gift. Headsets are not just for call center agents, but gamers too!

9. Power Color

Power Color is the leading brands for graphic cards and it is a gift to gamers. For those who love watching movies and TVs at home, here’s an innovative technology called JustSling – it allows you to watch videos stored in your computer on almost any TV in your house. You’ll also be able to view pictures and stream BluRay, DVD movies to multiple locations in your home.

Amazing discoveries, yeah?

Word of advice for those who will buy gadgets and accessories, make sure that you only buy from trusted sellers, and always double check the warranty. As for me, I buy only the trusted brands from trusted sellers. Happy Shopping!
