Get a Great Wi-Fi Seeker for $10 at CompUSA

Until I can post highlights of my Mobile Lawyering presentation, I wanted to pass on a great deal on a good Wi-Fi signal detector: This week, CompUSA has the Mobile Edge Wi-Fi Signal Locator on sale for $19.99 with a $10 rebate, so it's only $9.99 after rebate. (This is not a typo, as I bought one myself).

To my knowledge, this makes it the smallest and lowest cost Wi-Fi signal detector on the market -- well, at least for the remainder of this week on price. So hurry if you want to get in on this deal. It probably went on sale this past Sunday, so you may only have today and Saturday to get the full sale and rebate savings. Otherwise, it generally sells for $29.99 retail, and between $25-$30 at most online stores before S&H (although eBay has them between $19-$22 before S&H). They also make great presents.

This is the same unit as I've posted about previously. It's made by Chrysalis Development and is also branded as the Wi-Fi Seeker, WiFi Spy and the PCTEL WiFi Seeker.

I'm currently evaluating several Wi-Fi signal detectors and will be publishing my experiences shortly. This was such a great deal that I had to pass it along in the interim.

[Update 12.05.04: It looks like this was just a one-week special. As CompUSA now has it marked up to $39.99, it's more expensive than even the manufacturer's site. Froogle has better online deals listed for the Mobile Edge branded version as well as the Wi-Fi Seeker version.]
