LAB CLEARANCE: Oct 5, 2016

Mostly new and near-new gear from our test labs! Most items have been reviewed by SPCR. Look in the appropriate section on the main site to see what we think of it.

For obvious reasons, there is no warranty, but unless stated otherwise, each item is in original working order.

** All prices are in US$; only paypal or interact etransfer (in Canada) accepted, to [email protected]. Shipping is not included unless stated otherwise; the postal service is used.

For shipping estimates, contact Mike by email only - ([email protected])
State clearly the items you're interested in and...
** If you are in Canada, state your postal code.
** If you are in the US, tell me your state.
** If you are elsewhere in the world, state your country.
Inquiries not following these simple guidelines will be ignored.

For those that don't know, Mike is great! He even measured the inside of the Antec 902 I bought to make sure my oversized motherboard would properly fit. Cheers again Mike, a pleasure to deal with you and help support the site.

Hi Mike,
I can't find the review for the Silverstone Ensemble EB02-S... I searched the site but I didn't get lucky. Could you point me to it please ?

The cost of shipping is usually prohibitive. Sending stuff by ship is sometimes OK cost-wise, but takes forever. For small, light high value things -- like CPUs -- it's doable, but for most other things, I don't recommend it.

Are most items still available?

I am looking to build a HTPC and am looking at the cases you have available. I'm in Victoria but know enough people in Van to arrange a pick up or drop off.

Thanks

Had to exclude shipping from case prices -- many are too heavy & big, cost nears $100 when shipping across to East coast. Don't have a big volume corporate acc which allows cheaper shipping.

Just a note: have you given a look to eBay's Global Shipping Programme rates? Maybe they can be competitive (I've bought a case in USA on ebay.com last month, I've paid less than 50 USD for end-to-end shipping up to Italy).

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately...

Refreshed the clearance items, lots of new items added -- at really low prices. We need to make room, too many cases filling up our lab!

WE REALLY NEED TO MAKE SOME ROOM IN THE LAB!!!!

The biggest space hogs are the cases, which probably represent our #1 area of expertise and the most popular reviews. But we do enough of them that we're swamped for space once again. So here is the deal for anyone in the Vancouver area: Come and pick it up and you can have any of these for CA$. That's a further ~25% savings off the 50% pricing on most of the cases.

This is a limited offer -- it stands till Nov 10/15.

So come on in local SPCR readers!

Nice. Some good prices there for anyone lucky enough to be in that area. I'd definitely be treating myself to a case and cooler from that lot if I was just a little closer i.e. on the same land mass at least. Arc Mini R2 for $40 is a steal.
