.... to listen under water? (it was the water-proof bit that puzzled me).
I bet you it wouldn't last more than five minutes under water. "Waterproof" is a somewhat relative term in electronics.

Hmmm, yeah, << Bei Stufe 7 sollte das Smartphone nach Standardbeschreibung zeitweiliges Untertauchen aushalten. Dauerhaften Kontakt mit Wasser verträgt das Gerät aber nur mit Stufe 8.>>
it would have to be IPX8 at least.

IP7 = rated for submersion six feet of water for a half hour without getting damaged. Do your research.
.
The speaker is designed for ruggedness eg: to the pool or lake and if it gets accidentally dropped in water for a brief time will not die. That's the point of giving an electronic item some degree of waterproofness, to protect against the unfortunate accidents that traditionally kill electronics very quickly, same as with the recent Samsung Galaxy and iPhones etc.

Does this also apply to soon-to-be-found bargains?
If so, to all gamers out there: Digitec will have "exceptional gaming offers" (sic.) in the night between Sunday 10 and Mon 11 Sept.

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

I've got a Flip 3, and used it a couple of times on a small inflatable going down Limmat. Also at the pool, at the beach, etc.

No issues, and it will take a LOT of water without any complaints.

It's clearly not such a great deal.
Look for 598.95 , one gets the "KENWOOD KVC5300S Chef Elite".

It's almost the very same specs beside 1 -2 accessories. Nothing to justify being 699.90CHF, let alone the claimed original price of 1199.90chf.

Only missing a blender, grater and other accessories for a higher price.

Clearly, you should do due diligence prior to contest here...

http://www.toppreise.ch/prod_494329.html

I counted 23 Swiss online shops cheaper than your poor offer, including some solid shops with good reputation like digitec, fust, mediamarkt, microspot.

So I repeat myself, kvc5300 is much cheaper and has almost the same amount of accessories. I 'm not going to debate about the differences I listed, to me it's crystal clear that KVC5391S is not a good deal at that price.


Edit: i even checked the difference of getting the 5300 and buying separately the accessories like the additional hook and the additional stainless steal bowl, it's even cheaper, for example: http://www.toppreise.ch/index.php?se...d+hook&sRes=OK.

It's ok, no need to defend yourself at all cost, that was not a good deal, now you are all informed, that's all, topic over!

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

Bike store Velorado / Squadra Mondo in Steinhausen (ZG) will close its business this saturday, so they have those "everything must go"-prices:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/5i3E1BN7DKOHomxt1

Sorry camera quality, price on that BMC Timemachine TMR01 1799.- instead of 5999.- considering that just those DT Swiss wheelset (without tires) cost 800, and the Shimano Ultegra set another 800 the rest of the bike is almost free

BMC Timemachine TM01 2999.- instead 5999.-
