Life isn’t easy for a computer or gadget geek, nor is it particularly inexpensive. In order to keep up to date with the latest and greatest, you may find yourself spending a lot more money than you’d like. Thankfully, there are people out there who feel your pain and they want to make life a little easier on your wallet.

Although, LogicBUY is not the first shopping-based website out there, it does come with a few nifty features that you may not find elsewhere. Perhaps the single greatest strength that LogicBUY has is that the site relies not only on its in-house staff to find you the best deals on the web, but the user community can also contribute to this search. In effect, you have the entire LogicBUY user base at your disposal. Need a new digital camera? Maybe an external hard drive? Before you plunk down that credit card, it might be a good idea to check out a site like LogicBUY. After all, no one wants to pay full retail, right?

LogicBUY Scours the Web for Tech Deals

Whether you are shopping for a new notebook computer or a portable GPS navigation device, there’s a good chance that you’re not going to just splurge on the first product that you see. Being a savvy consumer, you may read up on product reviews (preferably reviews posted on Futurelooks) to help you with your purchasing decision. After narrowing down your options to a few select products, you’ll probably do some shopping around to make sure that you get the best price.

Instead of relying on a single individual (i.e., you), it’s much more powerful to rely on a community of like-minded users to see where you can score the best deal. This is where LogicBUY comes into play. The hottest deals are posted on the front page and you can search through the postings to see if there is a particularly good deal on it some place online; that’s pretty much the gist of it. The deal could simply be a clearance sale or it might be a coupon code. Whatever the case, the details are clearly laid out for you. There is also the Latest Deals section, which “promises to deliver fresh deals every 15-30 minutes throughout the day, 7 days a week.”

No Anonymous Contributions

In addition to the LogicBUY team (a small team with a passion for technology and saving money), the entire community of users can also submit deals. However, this is not done anonymously. You need to register with an account on the site before being able to participate in any way.

The registration form is remarkably straightforward, but it puts up at least the first defense against spam. You need to provide an email address, which requires validation, and there is a CAPTCHA style verification field as well. Aside from a birthday, no other personal information is really required. In this way, you could say that signing up for LogicBUY is no different than a social bookmarking or social news site like Digg.

Although there doesn’t appear to be too much in terms of user interaction, each registered user is provided with a brief profile page. You get to upload an avatar and submit some basic personal information. If LogicBUY wants to make the site a little more social, it may be worthwhile to add some more “community” elements to the site. As it stands, the profile and interaction elements are very much like a Digg or StumbleUpon community.
