South African retailers are running specials on a range of tech devices ahead of the Easter weekend.

Incredible Connection, Makro, Dion Wired, House and Home and Hi-Fi Corporation are offering specials on TVs; surround sound speaker systems, external storage and more. Below are some of this week’s standout deals.

By D:sign 40 inch Full HD LCD

This weekend, Hi-Fi Corporation has the By D:sign 40-inch Full HD LCD for R2,999.99.

While this TV may not match up to the more reputable brands in terms of features or image quality, it offers the best value-per-inch of any Full HD television currently on special this weekend.

The TV features a Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, HDMI connection, built-in USB port and a 2 year warranty through Hi-Fi Corporation.

Logitech X530 5.1 speaker system

The Logitech X530 speaker system is on special at Hi-Fi Corporation for R599.99 until 8 April.

These speakers have been around for nearly 8 years, and are still rated as a good choice for those who want a surround sound PC speaker system on a budget.

The Hi-Fi Corporation price is competitive when you compare it to what other local retailers are charging.

The Logitech X530 set features 5 satellite speakers with one dedicated subwoofer, for a total of 70 watts RMS power, and is compatible with PC, Mac, DVD players, televisions and game consoles.

Samsung LA32D550 32-inch Full HD LCD

Makro have the Samsung LA32D550 on special this week for R3,199.00.

This Samsung unit is highly regarded by Mybroadband forum users for its list of features as well as image quality.

The Makro special on the LA32D550 undercuts other local retailers, making it one of the cheapest offerings in South Africa this weekend.

The LA32D550 features a Full HD resolution, 50Hz panel, 4 HDMI ports and Samsung Allshare.

LG 23-inch 3D Monitor (D2342P)

Dion Wired has the LG D2342P 23-inch LED 3D monitor on special for R2,000.

We featured this deal last week because it offered exceptional value for money when compared to 23-inch class 3D capable monitors from other retailers. Luckily the monitor is still on special, so if you missed out last week there is still time to get one.

The monitor sports 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution, as well as 3D capabilities and 2D to 3D conversion via software. The bundle also includes a pair of LG 3D glasses for watching 3D content on the monitor.

Samsung 1TB 3.5-inch portable hard drive

Incredible Connection has the Samsung 3.5-inch 1TB M3 station series external hard drive on special as a “website only” deal for R599.95.

This is one of the cheapest 1TB portable hard drives available locally, and is in fact cheaper than a regular internal 3.5-inch 1TB regular hard drive. Free delivery is also included in the price.

The external drive requires AC power, and uses a USB 2.0 connection interface.

Bauer 55-inch Full HD LED TV

House and Home have the Bauer 55-inch Full HD LED television available for R7,999.00.

I’ve never heard of Bauer as a Television brand before, and the price hints that the screen will not be on par with the more well known brands such as Samsung and Sony.

However, the specifications are impressive for the price; the television has two HDMI out ports, a USB connection, and a 120Hz LED panel running a Full HD resolution.
