Budget Printer and USB Disk in LowYat Plaza

Thanks to Daniel, I found out that we can goto Sungei Wang by Monoral from KL Sentral. Before this I never notice that KL Sentral is the end station of Monorail. Shame of me!

dh and I went to LowYat plaza after the first MCAD training, he hunted another two programming books! One is on secure programming, another is about VB.NET programming on Internet and Input/Output.

LowYat is well known for IT products. I was thinking to get a USB drive and budget printer, and I found quite good deal in LowYat. :)

256MB USB disk – RM135

The Kingston 256MB USB disk with 5 years warranty is only RM135! (Few months ago, a 256MB USB disk will cost you around RM250.) However, the design of Kingston USB disk looks dull in grey. The given USB port extention is quite short. I found PenDrive at the same price has better look(white, abit Mac feel) and it has long USB port extention.

Canon XNU 255i Printer – RM225

Another great deal is Canon XNU 255i, Free a box of compatible black ink cartridges(6 inside) for only RM225! The printer itself comes with a black ink cartridge and color ink cartridge, so, totally you will get 8 ink cartridges! No need to worry about out of ink! The promotion is limited by stock last. It is about in another two weeks time, I guess.

I have decided to buy the printer, and buy the USB disk later. Printer is more important. :)

    128MB thumb drive at RM130 at a PC fair in early april this year.
    and they had the nerve to tell me it was an offer price, where the
    usual price was RM150! arrghhh!:twisted:

    so cheap i feel like buying another one to give as a present.its the
    most useful IT accessory to have in my opinion

    I am not sure about the reason. Probably the technology is more advance, the cost is lower, the competition among manufactures is higher, …

    I am considering in whether it is a better choice to buy a pen
    drive 256mb or a 256mb Mp3 player. Since their funtions are almost
    the same with the only advantage of an Mp3 player is that it can
    play songs on it, I wonder which is a wiser choice between the two.
    Anyway what is the price of a 256mb mp3 player now:?::shock::mrgreen::oops:

    bj: if you like listen to music very much and your budget allow, then get a usb MP3 player. 256MB usb mp3 player is around RM400.
