Given the current state of the economy, it's understandable that you may wish to curb your spending. But you don't have to splurge to get the latest tech toys. Here at Can Buy or Not, we review a variety of gadgets at a range of prices. So fret not, we have picks for every kind of price point. Here then are five under S$100 gadgets that won't break your bank!
Creative Pebble Pro
At S$89, Creative Pebble Pro sports a cute and compact spherical design, and offers good sound for your computer. This set of two speakers isn't as powerful as the Creative T60 when connected to your PC's USB port (only 10W RMS output), but goes up to 30W when you connect them with a 30W USB charger. Best of all, the performance is pretty impressive despite the small-ish size.
Xiaomi Smart Band 7
If you're looking for a cheap and good fitness tracker, consider the S$69 Xiaomi Smart Band 7. It features great battery life of up to two weeks, heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking. Sadly, there's no NFC, but it's still a pretty decent, and affordable tracker if you don't want to spend more.
Lenovo Legion M200 RGB
Gaming gear doesn't always have to be expensive. Case in point: The Lenovo Legion M200 RGB. It's cheap at less than S$40, has four DPI settings, and features RGB bling. However, it is very basic, so don't expect fancy macro programming or software to customise the mouse. Still, it's good enough to fit into our recommended list of under S$100 gadgets.
Niimbot D101 Inkless Label Printer
If you love keeping your stuff labelled, the S$42 Niimbot D101 Inkless Label Printer makes this easy to do. This compact printer zips out whatever you tell it to in less than a second, and can print a variety of stuff, including QR codes and more. Some features, however, are locked behind a subscription.
Mercusys AC1900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router
The S$49 Mercusys AC1900 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router is cheap. Performance is adequate for the price you pay, and it comes with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, 1x Gigabit WAN, and 2x Gigabit LAN ports. So if you're looking for a decent budget router for a shop or rental apartment, the MR50G fits the bill easily.
