South Africa’s hottest tech deals and sales of the week (19-24 Aug)

dji osmo action 2

Shopping for technology is an even bigger nightmare than clothes. But unlike clothing, finding the correct stick of RAM isn’t a question of it being too big or small, but just too damn expensive.

In a weekly series, Gearburn trawls the South African online shopping space to find the best deals, from DDR4 for your rig to cans for your ears, narrowing them down to just ten throughout the week.

Be sure to bookmark this page and check back in throughout the week, as we update this article regularly with new deals as they’re made available.

DJI Osmo Action – R6489 at OneDayOnly

Looking for a hardy, water resistant and 4K capable action camera that isn’t called a “Hero”? The Osmo Action is an excellent choice.

You can drop this thing in an 11-metre deep lake, and get still recordings even if you’re panting like a deer thanks to its RockSteady image stabilisation system.

This bundle itself includes a camera frame, quick release base, battery and case, locking screw and more.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury – R649 at Takealot

RGB? Check. 250-4000 DPI? Check. 1ms reports? Check.

At this price, the Hyperion Fury’s a pretty excellent deal, especially if you’re already invested in the Logitech ecosystem.

Corsair Harpoon – R397 at Raru

If you don’t mind waiting a week for delivery, the Harpoon currently on special at Raru is another stellar (and cheaper) gaming mouse option.

It features six buttons, an RGB Corsair logo, and a polling rate of up to 1kHz. Sensitivity goes up to 6000 DPI. And at a smidgen under R400, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better gaming mouse at this price.

WD WD10EZEX Blue 1TB hard drive – R659 at Wootware

Gotta love cheap hard drives. While RAM still costs a fortune in SA, at least these spinning storers are getting ever so cheap.

This 1TB WD Blue drive is about the cheapest drive you can find at this capacity, and features a 5400RPM rotational speed, and a two-year warranty.

It’s the perfect secondary storage solution to your main SSD drive, or an easy way to breathe some life back into an older PC.
