    Flipkart deals

    I missed my chance of getting the dishwasher (never knew cancelling a credit card transaction takes 3 days) and a laptop (since there are no good Ryzen 4xxx laptops available yet) during Big Billion and Diwali sales. Are there any sales to look forward to in late-November or December?

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    Windows 10 I made a mistake of not checking CrystalDiskInfo right out of the box. 17 times and 21 hours is after 1.25 days. Can't say for sure but maybe its 3-4 hours more than what I expected but again can't say. Okay. Its in NTFS after 'formatting' and its working well since then. I am...

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    Kindly detail the rationale behind your advice. It will help me make the decision easily. One more thing- I bought a Samsung 860Evo 500gb with the HDD to avail discount on SSD. As cost of SSD was less than Rs. 5000, I wasn't getting the 10% discount on SBI card. So I clubbed both SSD and HDD...

    I'll receive my 860Evo 500gb SATA SSD tomorrow. Since this is my first ssd, any checks to do apart from Formatting and CrystalDiskInfo?

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    They are giving option of Refund only, No Replacement. So I'll think it over till tomorrow since I won't get such a deal again. I have formatted the drive already and its health is good so I should be safe, though.

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    Flipkart for ₹6400! What reason should I give for return? Sadly there is no replacement.. Can we infer anything from that SMART data from the pic attached?

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    Will keep this in mind. I didn't format at first. After it kept showing me errors, I formatted it as a last resort. After seeing the pack again, the rear end can be opened easily, and may have been too. FML!

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    At first I thought so too, but then when I was unpacking the HDD I had observed that it was very well packed. Especially I don't think anyone could stick the transparent tape so meticulously after opening it up once. I'll wait and see for 1-2 days more. Will the replace considering I have...

    I had ordered a 4TB WD Passport External HDD and received it on Sunday, 18th. When I connected it to my laptop around 6 pm, it showed an error message stating - This device is incompatible or corrupted. In 'This PC' folder the corresponding drive icon was grayed out and it wasn't showing the...

    Budget 0-20k Where can I buy Intel 7260ac Wireless card from?

    I don't think these dongles provide Bluetooth with Wifi. I am changing my card since bluetooth is acting up. Wifi speeds aren't the best but I don't download much on my laptop anyways.

    Budget 0-20k Where can I buy Intel 7260ac Wireless card from?

    My Dell N5110 has a Dell WIreless 1702 wifi card which is a renamed Atheros AR5B195. It is a Half Mini Pci-e Wireless Card. Its bluetooth is acting weird and is ancient 3.0, hence want to upgrade. Recommended upgrade to this card is Intel 7260hmw aka 7260ac card. This card is available on...

    Android Thoughts on the LG G8X?

    People have reported decent SOT with/without case. Check on reddit.com/r/lgg8x Yes. They claim it as 360 Freestop Hinge... but as it is a moving part, it is bound to fail at some time.

    For anyone looking for Budget TWS under Rs. 2000 - Edifier X3 - Highly recommended by Scarbir . Bought one myself. Soundcore Life Note - Have two of these. Not the best Sound Quality but they work just fine. Have ample battery life to manage 3-4 days in one charge.
