Hi everyone,

Please can you list your top 3 new categories you would like to see on Pricespy! They can be anything, the new categories don't have to be related to electronics or PC's.

So far some of the suggestions have been:
- Sport related categories (Golf/Rugby equipment)
- Fishing equipment
- DVD's / Bluray movies
- Books
- Batteries
- Ink cartridges
- Extended software categories
- Adapters/Converters/Cables/Cable ties etc

This is a good opportunity to get some new categories on the site which could help to consolidate 'wishlists' from multiple sites. Lets get the ball rolling and develop the site to what we want it to be!

Cheers

Yes! Those 2 would be highly appropriate, great suggestion. It would be great to have several categories of batteries:
- AA/AAA/etc for small devices
- Laptop batteries

And ink cartridges would be very helpful aswell.

Thought of my third suggestion last night: More software categories, e.g. Adobe, programming etc.

Adobe, programming...LINUX! Haha. Ive allready talked to the devs about including stores that sell linux such as the NZ openoffice site. Does anyone know of any other stores which sell linux live dvd's/usb's?

I take it you mean Linux distro CDs/DVDs.

I only found two stores (using Google)... but it seems that you've found another!
www.thelinuxcdstore.com
www.copyleft.co.nz
They both have crazily high prices compared to TradeMe. I'll keep looking - I really like the idea, but decided it wasn't worth mentioning as very few shops would sell it.

Using Pricespy raw, I can see 64 pages of what seems to be nearly all commercial stuff for servers etc. with prices ranging from < $5 to over $1 mllion! Mostly Aquire, with a few others. Also about 4 old versions of Ubuntu all at the same store.

Awesome, so thats 3 possible stores at the moment. $8.50 isnt too bad, I think its actually $9 on the openoffice site and they only have Lucid. It doesnt matter if only a few stores sell it, im sure we can get Linux live CD's listed on here :D

Is it possible to filter through Builds yet? As in have people make a full build (with/without pherials)

Why not add a 'Builds' category and have it so you can select total value, brands for graphics, mobo & cpu and see what builds people have submitted.

Would be cool to cost compare full systems

Probably most are only interested in computer components, and the odd other category.

a cold cathode section would be cool
also fixing the time stamps on the forums would be good as it hasn't changed with daylight savings

How about one for KVM's? Can find heaps of KVM's on the site but no category that i can do a search from. Im sure there was one before or a category that used to be able to narrow it down by KVM but cant find it now.

would it be possible for a case mod category that consists of things like cold cathodes and other lighting also panel window making kits, wiresleeves.

http://xoxide.com/modaccessories1.html is a good example of what I wont but this is an USA store

Hi Woffle,

I just looked up what KVM's were and they sound pretty nifty. I'll pass the request on to the developers and reply back here with any developments. Thanks for your suggestion!

I agree that a case mod category would be logical. It could also house miscellaneous items to do with PC's such as rubbing alcohol and cables/plugs/sockets/screws etc. I'll also pass this on and reply back with any news. Thanks for the suggestion Slayer!

What about electrical stuff? (I know, I'm probably the only one that would use it! And then only as a hobby.)

Not a new category, maybe just a name tweak: I wasn't sure whether to post about routers in "Computers & components" or "Telephony, GPS & Internet".

Not sure if this has been suggested eariler, but maybe a new category with these below, and i have a feeling this would be quite difficult to collect but this would be handy.

Mobile Network Providers (Cost & Packages) - this would be a major undertaking, as most of these companies would be changing their plans often...

Internet Providers - Also a major one to.. same as above...

Services (Costs)

Fibre

Broadband

ISDN

Cable

Wifi

Dial-up

Mobile

Packages (includes home phone and internet)

Advanced Services (Tick Boxes)

VoIP

Webhosting

Domain Name Hosting

Static IP Hosting

etc...


Myself... I want to know what fibre is available out there... find the best deal for me

Yes it would definitely be handy. There are a few different websites that attempt to compare broadband/phone charges but I think Pricespy could probably do a better job at it.

What I would love, and what is TOTALLY missing in New Zealand is a place to compare new car prices. Computer stuff, power companies, phone and ISPs - all covered. The AA provides list of RRP prices for new cars...but no one has a complete list of all the dealerships and what the going prices are at any given time. Used cars are too hard - different years, mileage etc....but new cars should be easy. There is a finite number of models, finite number of dealerships. The hard thing is scraping together the information...but I think if it took off dealers would submit pricing to get the sales. With thousands of dollars to be saved I'd be willing to pay to see which dealers have the best prices on certain models...and I'd fly/drive anywhere in NZ to pick up a new car as the savings would be worth it.

 

And we wouldn't even need to do all new cars...just the 100 most popular models would be good....so luxury cars etc wouldn't be needed unless dealers volunteer the information....

 

I only suggest it because I went looking and all I can see as an option is googling and trawling through offers manually. Not cool  :-(
