Delighted dabs.com Customer Wins £1,200 Voucher

A dabs.com customer has triumphed in a competition run by visual technology company NVIDIA and computer manufacturer Asus, winning £1,200 to spend on computer supplies.

The contest was open to those who had purchased any Asus SandyBridge Motherboard and an Asus graphics card from the GTX500 series from a participating retailer during July 2011. To be in with a chance of winning, entrants were required to correctly answer a technical question about the monitor attachment capacity of the Asus GTX590 graphics card.

As well as dabs.com, people entered via retailers OCUK, SCAN, Ebuyer, ARIA, YoYotech and Dino PC.

dabs.com customer David West was drawn at random from a collection of accurate respondents and was delighted to receive his prize.

“Wow, I can’t believe I’ve won,” he said. “At first I was just happy to have bought some computer supplies at fantastic prices – but now I can pick some more. I really need a few things right now, so this opportunity has come along at just the right time for me.”

He added: “I’d like to say a big thank you to dabs.com, Asus and NVIDIA for running this competition and offering such a great prize.”

dabs.com sells a wide range of products by both NVIDIA and Asus, from laptops to graphics cards, cables and hard drives.

dabs.com Product Manager, Duncan Rutherford, said: “We really enjoy running competitions such as this, as they reward real enthusiasts who care about their technology products.

“They are also a great way for us to celebrate our strong relationship with high-quality suppliers like Asus and NVIDIA.”

Never Miss a Moment as dabs.com Introduces the Latest Compact and Digital SLR Cameras from Olympus

The new range of retro styled yet technically impressive digital cameras from Olympus are now available at UK computing and technology specialist dabs.com, including the E-P3 PEN SLR and the E-PM1 PEN Mini.

Well known for their innovative and stylish digital SLR cameras, as well as compact‘mini SLRs’, Olympus has been a popular photography brand for many amateur and professional photographers over the years. These latest additions to its line have piqued the interest of many technology blogs and review websites already.

The E-P3 is being marketed as the new standard for the well known PEN product line with a number of new and innovative features. However, it remains in-keeping with the quality and style that hark back to the early PEN models of the 1960s.

The standout feature on this 12.3 Megapixel digital SLR camera is the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF, officially the fastest auto-focus sensor on the market. It means that photographers can catch precious moments or high-speed action shots with the E-P3 and not have to worry about slow auto-focus missing the most important pictures.

dabs.com is also going to be selling the slightly more compact E-PM1 micro four thirds camera. This smaller and stylish addition to the PEN family allows owners to catch professional SLR-like images but without the added complexity of a larger SLR, thanks to its newly redesigned interface which even allows previews of effects before the image is captured.

The E-P3 will be available at dabs.com either as body only or with one of a selection of compatible lenses. The E-PM1 will be available from early Autumn in a number of different vibrant colours.
