Web Sales Favorite Products

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I thought I would take a poll of the internet sales team, working this morning, to find out what their favorite Abt.com product is right now. Everyone had very different responses. If you want to put a face with a name, check out the web sales page on Abt.com.

Starting with Conrad S., his favorite item is a “GE Profile (Champagne) High-Efficiency Washer – WPGT9150HMG top loading washing machine with the capacity and energy efficiency of a front load at a lesser price. I like it so much I actually do laundry to help my wife out. It works great.”

Steve P. loves the selection of Oakley Sunglasses. “They are great in the bright sun when I play golf.”

Kevin R. loves his Python Remote Car Starter from Viper. “It definitely helps during those cold nights where I’m the last to leave in the department. Plus, it makes me feel ‘Willis Tower’.”

Brian E. likes the Playstation 3 because he can watch his extensive collection of blu-rays and play video games too.

Megan M. loves the Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 600 Series Speakers. She enjoys the superb audio quality at such a reasonable price.

Victor R.’s favorite product is the Pioneer Flagship In-Dash A/V Receiver with DVD playback. It interfaces with an iPod and has a navigation unit all-in-one. He likes it because it does so much and doesn’t clutter up his car.

Tim S. uses Bang and Olufsen A8 series headphones. “These are the best sounding in ear headphones that actually stay in my ears when I’m doing things that are active (skiing, sledding, chasing my dog around, etc.).”

Isaac B. doesn’t like watching commercials when he’s finished with a long day at work. The Hi-Def Tivo eliminates commercials and he can watch his favorite TV Shows, like True Blood and The Office, after work.

Mark S. finishes the day with the Human Touch Compact Acuvibe Handheld Massager. He comes home, eats a late dinner and massages the day away.

Carl C. won’t make coffee unless he gets filtered water from his fridge. The Whirlpool filter makes his coffee taste great.

Rafael P. listens to his XM Satellite Radio on the way to work everyday. “It’s commercial free and has a huge variety of music options.”

Blake B. relaxes listening to his Boston Acoustics Duo-i Plus Black iPod Speaker System. “The quality and value are amazing for such a low price.”

Carl P. and David S. make dinner with their Weber Genesis Grills. “It’s a great way to cook steaks in the summer or winter.”

What are your favorite appliances or electronics? Let me know!

TiVo and Samsung Make Renting DVDs Easier

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

 

TiVo revolutionized the electronics market in 1997 by making it optional to record from a TV onto a DVD. Again, today, TiVo is making life easier by eliminating the trip to the video store by teaming up with Blockbuster on-line. The new service offered by TiVo will make thousands of movies available to broadband connected TiVo subscribers.

TiVo users will be able to select and rent movies directly from Blockbuster On Demand; “classic” movies will be $2.99 and new-releases will cost $3.99. Simply navigating to the Video On Demand screen will bring users to the Blockbuster logo. By selecting the Blockbuster function, users will be able to see all of the content available to rent.

For now, Blockbusters will not be in Hi-Def. Over the next few weeks, Blockbuster On Demand will be adding new movies and some HD titles. For more information on Blockbuster on Demand TiVo has provided a website to answer some questions.

Blockbuster On Demand will also be available on new Samsung HDTVs, home theater systems, and Blu-ray players. Current owners of some Samsung LCD TVs (series 650), Plasma TVs (series 7000), and Blu-ray players will be able to access this feature after a firmware upgrade. Blockbuster will have a “preferred position” on Samsung’s Blu-ray interface. Blockbuster will also be featuring Samsung Blu-ray players in select stores and on Blockbuster.com.
