Carl Zeiss unveils its sub $100 virtual reality headset for iOS and Android

VR One-Zeiss-announcement-01Carl Zeiss has just recently announced the VR One virtual reality headset for use with iOS and Android smartphones. While it still feels like a bit of stretch to get people to put these things on their heads, the typically steep price point of early contenders does’t help. The VR One is a similar premise to what we are seeing from Samsung’s Gear VR headset, but at a seemingly much more affordable price tag.

LG Smart LED HDTVs w/ webOS: 42-inch $425 shipped (Reg. $799), 50-inch $550 shipped (Reg. $1,099)

LG-50LB6300-HDTV-Smart-WebOS

BuyDig via eBay Daily Deals offers discounts on LG’s LED Smart HDTVs with webOS in two sizes: 42-inch $424.99 shipped and 50-inch $549.99 shipped. Both deals mark the lowest prices we have ever seen. BuyDig is an authorized dealer with a feedback rating of 99.1% and both models include a 1-year limited USA warranty.

Both models offer full HD 1080p resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, built-in WiFi, and 3 HDMI connections, but webOS is the real standout feature of these TVs. avforums explains:

It’s a phrase that gets used far too often but in the case of LG’s new system it’s appropriate, Smart+ is a game changer. Thanks to the use of webOS, Smart+ is attractively designed, intuitive to use and very responsive. But more than that, it feels like an integral part of the television and not just an added on feature.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from 434 Amazon reviewers.

Mpow Mbox Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Speaker $43 shipped (Reg. $100) + Freebie contest

Mbox Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Speaker

Amazon has the Mpow Mbox Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Speaker for $49.99. When you enter our exclusive coupon code: MBOX9TO5, $7.50 comes off the price bringing the total down to only $42.50 shipped. That’s $57 off the list price and the best price we’ve seen for the speaker.

This Mpow has incredible sound with full range output, wonderful bass response and crystal clear articulate high end. With it’s built in high capacity 1500 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it supports up to 10 hours playing time. The Mbox is lightweight and small enough to tuck into your bag and go. Simply slide the on/off button to “on” position and the Mbox is automatically ready for pair and connect to the last-connected device.

We reviewed the Mbox last month and had this to say about it:

…it is durable, stylish, pocketable and sounds good. The chamfered aluminum edges look great with Apple products. It is smaller than the Omaker M2 and is maybe 85% the size of a Jambox. You can throw it in a pocket or a purse without breaking stride. It also has Bluetooth 4.0, which allows for efficient energy usage yielding a group-leading 10 hours from a 1500mAh battery. The buttons at the top are easy to use and well designed as are the ports on the back.  The speakerphone worked great as well.

Mpow has also given us a few units for a free giveaway. Either Like this post on Facebook or RT it on Twitter to enter. We’ll DM the winners (so make sure you are following us).
