    Like Chinese goods avoid MRCP/MRCS specialists

    That is so true, often regardless of their level of honesty. Why do they do that? Speaking from my own experience with some, not all doctors, some older members in the family have difficulty expressing their questions / fears to a doctor and instead pour out their worries to family members...

    Amazon India Escalation

    Second that. Amazon.in CC has gone to shite recently. I too have decided to treat them like the old ebay.in and only buy cheap junk from them. I've found other online dealers offering better customer service and prices too when contacted. That looks the most likely reason for such behavior...

    Flipkart deals

    Yep, noticed this too. amazon.in is now pulling the same crap that ebay.in used to do regarding warranty. And not just no name manufacturers, even for the biggies products. Sure fire way to go down the toilet .... fast.

    Poor Hard disk packaging by Amazon

    Appario & Cloudtail are Amazon fulfilled and therefore there is no consistency as to how HDD's are packaged. It depends on the fulfillment center and/or the person at the fulfillment center and no amount of complaining to Amazon appears to make a difference in HDD packaging from their...

    Amazon India lightning deals

    Thanks for the headsup. I needed one of these and grabbed it while it was available. Only problem is registering the SSD at Samsung's website shows Out of Warranty status as indicated in the product reviews at Amazon The clueless idiots at Samsung CC just copy and paste a standard e-mail...

    Android Is OnePlus Chinese ??

    Second that. I saw a lot of weird behavior on several Chinese origin devices at the height of the recent standoff. Some devices such as a TV boxes, smart remotes etc. monentarily glitched after years of trouble free ops but continue to work while others such as IP Cameras, smart lights etc...

    Is Mega banned in India?

    The Airtel block that results in a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR for mega and other sites does not appear to be at the DNS level. Looks like they are DPI'ng and doing a connection RST. There is an ongoing discussion on another IN forum that is mostly internet/broadband related stuff.

    A good NAS?

    The WD Red EFAX (as opposed to EFRX) supposedly are SMR drives . Just a heads-up to make sure that you don't end up with this specific model (not recommended for use in a NAS). My experience with the Seagate Ironwolf drives has actually been better than the WD Reds (EFRX). Three Reds failed...

    Aliexpress.com - Feedback Thread

    Yanwen last mile can be really strange. I had a Yanwen shipment go from China to Tuvalu and then finally to destination country (India) per 17track. It then just got dropped from the heavens to my doorstep :) and I have no idea of who actually delivered it. No markings, nothing on the package...

    Aliexpress.com - Feedback Thread

    SingPost was the fastest, but YMMV depending on the FPO it processes through, the time of year etc. I would prefer SingPost, ChinaPost and then Yanwen in that order. I read somewhere that Yanwen lastmile delivery is auctioned off container-wise to any of several delivery partners, GATI /...

    Aliexpress.com - Feedback Thread

    Over the past year, I have received all my untracked shipments except one (AE refunded when I disputed after waiting 60 + 60 days[seller extended protection twice]). The untracked shipments that I received were a mix between ChinaPost, Yanwen, Singpost. The one that I did not receive was via...
