EXPIRED - The Weekly Roundup (1 - 4 December 2011): Not so festive prices

I know many of you are looking forward to checking out the latest deals this week especially since the festive season is upon us. But as I mentioned in last week's Weekly Roundup things were not looking that festive in terms of prices.
I have been paging through the catalogues and I have been struggling to find bargains to report on.

If you compare the prices of TVs, Home Theatre, electronics, etc to those of a month ago you will come to the conclusion that prices has gone up and not dropped for the festive season.
The rise in prices could be as a result of the poor Rand / Dollar exchange.

The items mentioned below are good prices and decent products but in no sense bargains.

(Click on the images below for links to the specials on the retailers website)

Samsung 51" Full HD Plasma (51D550) for R9999 @ Hifi Corporation

Samsung 3D Blu Ray Home Theatre System (HTD5500) for R3799 @ Game
What make this home theatre stand out from the Samsung R2500 system is that is has Wifi built in, 2 HDMI inputs (for consoles and other devices) and tweeters in the front speakers.

The Kinect Sensor sells for R1999 separately making the console essentially R1599, adding the benefit of the Kung Fu Panda 2 game and the 3 months live Gold makes this deal definitely worth it.

EXPIRED - The Weekly Roundup (24 - 27 November 2011): 32" LG FHD LED TV for R3500


This week we have some good old cheapies as well as some interesting new technology.
Not sure if this is the start of things heating up for the Christmas period.

I would however ask that everyone looking to buy that big item for the holidays to be careful and deligent to check and compare prices. I have noticed that some of the usual favourites at the stores are actually advertised at prices more that what I was expecting. Could this be that the retailers are expecting people to buy no matter the price and hence have stopped dropping the prices?

This being said I have managed to find a few good deals this week:
