'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Many things can keep you away from the golf course; bad weather, a busy schedule, and more. But even when it isn't possible to get in a full round of golf, few things are better than a 4K golf simulator for your home, allowing you to cycle through various practice mods indoors and out. If you're looking for a great option, the SLX Golf MicroSimulator Basic Kit is exclusively available during our Deal Days sale for just $129.99.

During our alternative to Prime Day, you will find a wide variety of excellent bargains, which you can find in our promotional collection. Most deals, including the SLX MicroSim, don't require a coupon code. However, you can't wait too long. These fantastic deals are only available through October 12 at 11:59 PM.

The SLX Golf MicroSimulator Basic Kit doesn't include a swing stick, but it is still excellent for all ages and skill levels. It helps you stay loose and can improve your golf swing's mechanics. In addition, it works with your own golf clubs; simply mount the sensor on any of your clubs and swing as usual.

Club mounts are supplied, but you need to ensure that they are correctly seated so that the tapered end is under your golf grip. The sensor is exceptionally lightweight and accurate. You'll find that this one's impressive 0.12-second reaction rate is lightning quick compared to the latency of other golf simulator sensors, with no delay whatsoever in data transfer.

It will probably be best to use Almost Golf balls when hitting inside a big front yard or into an outdoor net. Because if you mishit actual golf balls, especially experiencing heavy interaction with the turf, you will get misleading results due to the shock and vibration. You can easily mirror iOS devices to newer TVs using the SLX Connect App, and integration for Android devices is planned for later this year.

This Basic Pack is a wonderful way to improve your game with the analytics you'll get from metrics on face angle and clubhead speed at impact. In addition, you can customize the calibration to focus on results based on your individual swing's characteristics. Users like this golf simulator; they've rated it four stars out of five on average. For instance, verified customer Sonia T. enjoyed "the ability to attach to the club to assess real swings."

Get your SLX Golf MicroSimulator Basic Kit now while it's available at our exclusive Deal Days price of $129.99 until October 12. And don't forget to check out the rest of our Deal Days discounts before then.
