Summer Sales Event

Summer is in full swing, and so are the savings over at the Howard Store! Here’s a little peek at some of the hot deals we’re rolling out during our Summer Sales Event

First up is the Midland XTC260 Action Camera. If you’re planning on a summer full of outdoor adventures, this is the camera for you. The most compact and lightweight46a25426-62ec-4df9-be22-ccf4ac8b6566 of Midland’s line of Action Cameras, the XTC260 comes with a mounting kit that allows you to attach it to just about anything, as well as a submersible case to keep out water and dust. It’s ridiculously easy to use: you slide the switch forward to begin filming and slide it back to stop. And all of your action videos are recorded in 720p high-definiton.

 
Earlier this week, Lenovo released this video to promote their line of Yoga Ultrabooks…

…and we’re a little obsessed with it. If you have furry friends in your house, you know just how nosy they can be. Luckily, we can help you stay one step ahead of their shenanigans with the Yoga 11 tablet computer. The cool thing about the Yoga is that it can be used as a tablet OR a laptop computer, or really anything in between, since the touchscreen (which is an 11.6 inch HD display, by the way) can be rotated all the way around. It’s perfect for anyone who’s constantly on-the-go and wants both the convenience of a tablet and the comfort of a laptop in one slim, energy-efficient package.

 

Finally, the crown jewel of the summer collection is the Samsung Smart UN55HU9000. uhdtvRemember our post about 4k/UHDTVs from a few weeks ago? At first glance, the HU9000 looks like your average 55″ UHDtv. And then, you notice…un65hu9000k_013_deta28e03a7d.jpg.web.v1Yep. that’s right. The flatscreen display is curved to provide the ultimate immersive experience. On top of the incredible picture quality and state-of-the-art curved screen, this Samsung model is a smart TV that can connect to Netflix, YouTube, Pandora radio, and many other web apps via Wi-Fi. There’s not enough room on this blog to list all of the features this model offers (screen mirroring, One Connect, Quad Screen, etc…) so check out the listing for yourself and see all the many ways the Samsung UHD9000 can enhance your media experience.

 

When you’re ready to disconnect and head outside, we offer plenty of games and toys for good, old-fashioned summer fun.

There really is something for everyone to be found at our Summer Sales Event! We invite you to head over to the Howard Store and see just how cool these savings are.

Tech Term Tuesday: 4k

You’ve probably heard that Sony is broadcasting the World Cup in 4k, but what does that mean? 4k, according to the Tech Terms Computer Dictionary, is a display standard (for a TV or a computer monitor) that can support a horizontal resolution of about 4,000 pixels. The most common resolution for 4k-enabled televisions, often referred to as UHDTVs, is 3840 x 2160 pixels. For comparison, most high-definition televisions have a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Simply put, 4k televisions are twice as HD as HDTVs.

If you’re in the market for a UHDTV, you’re in luck! We just so happen to offer a number of UHDTVs on our very own Howard Store. Most of them are SmartTVs as well, and the Samsung models are compatible with the PixieTV app. Check out this image from Gizmodo‘s article about the app:

Um, WOAH. That’s a live feed that breaks down what’s happening in the game as you’re watching, as well as scores from past games and what matches are coming up. Perfect for the sports enthusiast who doesn’t want to miss a second of the action!

Here’s a listing of all the UHDTVs that we offer. We hope you’ve learned a little something, and we hope to see you back here next Tech Term Tuesday!
