What Gadgets Would You Buy With £2000?

Winning £2,000 worth of gadgets and technology is certainly a prize we would all love to receive and in order to be in with a chance of winning this prize you’ll first have to vote in the TrustedReviews 2011 Awards – which you can do here.

With the voting out of the way you can let you mind wander as to exactly what you would spend £2,000 of imaginary technology vouchers on. And let us tell you that once you do start calculating what you might spend the prize on, you’ll see that the choice is not as easy as you may think.

Not only do you have to decide between certain products (Apple iPad 2 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1) but you first need to decide, do you want to blow it all on one big item or a series of smaller purchases?

TrustedReviews 2011 Awards

Do you put the money towards a top-end 3D TV like the Panasonic TX-P55VT30 or the gorgeous Samsung PS64D8000? What about a top-of-the-line laptop with as much processing power, RAM and GB as you would ever need, like the Sony Vaio Z?

Then again you could scale down your ambitions and go for a more reasonably priced laptop such as the Samsung RV720, with still enough money for an Asus Eee Pad Transformer, a pair of Cresyn C720H headphones, a TomTom Go 1000 LIVE satnav and still have plenty left over for a Samsung Galaxy S II.

We want to hear from you as to what you would spend you £2,000 of tech voichers on? Let us know in the comments below.

The choice is yours, but, to be in with a chance of winning all this booty, you’ll need to vote and do so just click here and choose what you think is the best technology of 2011.

I think a nice combination would suit me, something like an LG 42LW550T or a Samsung PS51D6900 would be great, an iPad 2 and a Panasonic Lumix G3 would be great, bring me bang up to date!

I'd take a Samsung PS51D550, Asus Transformer 2 and probably a new DSLR with the rest :)

I would buy a Canon D600 and a tablet, but I'm still not sure which one?


November 11, 2011, 6:35 am

I would buy a Droid Razr if it's out already, or a Galaxy S II. Plus a Nikon J1.

The rest of the cash would go towards a 13" Macbook Air

I had it all planned out, but your review of the Samsung 700T now has me lusting for it. So possibly that, a Sony A580 DSLR (I don't quite get along with the new SLT cameras, alas) and a Sonos box.

I'd have to get the missus a nice point and shoot camera as the one I bought her for her birthday has been a bit of a mare, I'd treat myself to a tablet, probably a Samsung Galaxy of some sort, and a digital SLR. Any money remaining can go on bubble wrap to protect all the new purchases :)

Very interesting choices people. Personally I would have to go for a MacBook Air 13in with a 256GB SSD (£1349) and a Panasonic Lumix GX1 with kit lens (£599) and I'd still have £50 left over for ten kebabs. Nice

I know what I would have. Native Instruments Maschine, Traktor Scratch Pro and one of those new Samsung Series 7 lappys to run it all on. Job done, music production and DJ nirvana beckons....

I'd say a Zeppelin Air, £499, and a pair of ACS T2's, £499. Blimey, I'm already sated, £2000 is a lovely chunk of cash for gadgets. Let's see, what else? A Garmin GPS sportswatch, about £300, and a Jawbone Up wristband, £80, just for kicks! This is hard work. Oh, and an iPad to fill up the rest.

I think I just made sure I'll be disappointed with whatever Christmas presents come my way.

would have to be an optoma hd33 and a decent surround system with the change.oh and a remote control light bulb.

You're right - harder than you think to choose what to buy!

I'd probably splash out on a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 for my SLR (£250) and a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 (£1000) to complete my lens collection...for now...

Then I reckon a [fairly] powerful laptop with the balance.
