Your One Stop Guide to ShopBack’s Online IT Show 2020
New tech releases get all the love and attention from the tech junkies. But for commoners like me who are seeking a simple upgrade to my decade-old laptop, the annual IT fair was where I could get the best deals.
This year, ShopBack brings the IT Show to your fingertips with our very own IT Show. Partnering with brands like Canon, Lenovo, Sennheiser and Razer, we bring you the best deals so you can get your upgrade with great savings.
Here are our top recommendations for the best tech products to get this IT Show!
Best Wireless Headphones and Earbuds
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless (S$599.00)
Where sound meets style, the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless is for the audiophiles who want to look good but not compromise on good sound quality. Featuring exceptional active noise cancellation and sturdy build quality, the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless is truly one of the best wireless over-ear headphones out there. They are also one of the most comfortable ones as well, making them suitable for long periods of wear especially on a long-haul flight. With the 5% Upsized Cashback during the IT Show, don’t miss out on your chance to own one of the best headphones on the market.
Sennheiser HD 450 BT (S$269.00)
If you’re on a tighter budget but still want the sound quality and active noise cancellation of a Sennheiser headphone, then the Sennheiser HD 450 BT is what you’re looking for. Despite costing nearly half of the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless, the HD 450 BT does not compromise in the audio department providing warm bass and controlled mids which are sure to satisfy the general masses. There are obvious differences in build quality due to the price difference but the HD 450 BT’s sleek looks and great sound more than makeup for the slightly plastic feel of the headphone.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless (S$295.00)
If truly wireless earbuds are more your style then look no further. Despite being released in 2018, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds remain amongst the best sounding wireless earbuds out there.

Best Bluetooth Speakers and Sound Systems
JBL Flip 5 (S$139.00)
Arguably the most popular Bluetooth speaker, the JBL Flip 5 is a must-have for any party. With an IPX7 rating (able to be submerged in water 1m deep for a maximum of 30 minutes), the Flip 5 is perfect for any pool-side event without fear of damaging the speaker itself. Furthermore, the introduction of PartyBoost sets the Flip 5 apart, allowing for the pairing of multiple PartyBoost compatible speakers for a more surround sound feel. Of course, Flip 5 is available in a myriad of colours, so it is sure to one that pleases your eye.
JBL Link Bar (S$799.00)
A soundbar, smart speaker, Android TV all rolled into one; the JBL Link Bar is an excellent item for non-Smart TV users. The biggest feature of the Link Bar would have to be the built-in Android TV, allowing non-smart TV users to use Smart TV features at ease. Easily access applications like Netflix and YouTube on your TV without lifting your control with the help of Google Assistant. The crisp sound clarity also makes watching films an amazing experience even in the comfort of your home.

Canon EOS 200D II (S$929.00)
Ever wanted to dabble in photography but don’t know where to start? The Canon EOS 200D II is a great entry-level DSLR camera that doesn’t break the bank. After all, nobody wants to shell out thousands of dollars only to find out they weren’t meant for photography. Featuring 4K video capabilities, this camera is suitable for aspiring videographers as well!
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III (S$999.00)
An entry-level camera that’s suitable even for the absolute photography amateurs, the PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a portable camera that takes you from day to night. From travel vlogs to daily shots, the Canon PowerShot is as powerful as a DSLR. Using the DIGIC 8 and 1.0 inch Stacked CMOS Sensor, the PowerShot G7 Mark III is super compact and good for those who dislike the extra weight and often shoots in low-light conditions.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (S$4949.00)
Despite being released in 2016, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV remains one of the best cameras around. It’s impressive 30.4 megapixel full-frame sensor captures incredible still images when coupled with the 61-point viewfinder autofocus. If you’re shooting videos, the EOS 5D Mark IV also captures shots at 7 frames per second which is relatively faster than other DSLRs in the market.
Besides the steep price point which can be a bummer, videographers who shoot in 4k might want to seek other alternatives as the EOS 5D Mark IV is unable to support 4K output via HDMI. Not a big issue in my opinion, and furthermore, you can get 9% Cashback on your purchase on 12 March so I ain’t complaining!
Best Home Appliances
Dyson V11 Absolute (S$999.00)
The Dyson V11 Absolute is the best cordless vacuum you can buy at the moment. With the use of the Dynamic Load Sensor, the vacuum is able to automatically choose the appropriate suction power needed for whatever you are cleaning. Dyson’s patented Hyperdymium motor paired with their Radial Root Cyclone technology, generates twice the suction of other cordless vacuums, trapping dust and dirt in the bin so it never loses suction. The Dyson V11 Absolute is sure to be a great addition to any household.
Check out our in-depth review of the Dyson V11 Absolute here. With 6% Upsized Cashback and another $60 Cashback Bonus (applicable to all Dyson cordless vacuums), the Online IT Fair is the best chance to get your Dyson Cordless Vacuums.
Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 (from S$2701.79)
By combining a durable and lightweight chassis with high-performance software, we have on our hands possibly the best business laptop right now. Despite being advertised as a professional laptop for businessmen, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon is suitable for anyone who wants to get their hands on the most versatile laptop from Lenovo.
More importantly, Lenovo is having a super brand day on 13 March (mark your calendars!) so keep a lookout for that 5% cashback and 22% off any laptop!
