    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...

    New 4TB WD Passport HDD showed Error!

    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.

    Android Thoughts on the LG G8X?

    The phone is fully capable without the dual-screen case. It has OLED panel, a flagship processor, okay cameras, great DAC and Speakers, IP68 Water and Dust proof, NFC, offers Wireless charging, some militart grade build. That case is okay for people who like to multi-task or specific use cases...

    Android Thoughts on the LG G8X?

    Got one for mom, would've gotten one for myself if I had not spent on monitor, ssd etc. Its almost 95% flagship at a very reasonable price. And for the flak LG faces for less updates, imo if LG can provide a bug-free experience, I don't think a regular person needs an update every month. So...

    LG 22mk600m or Samsung ls22r350 ?? Though I have already ordered Samsung monitor for ₹6500 from Amazon, but I am having second thoughts. LG has 2 HDMI ports but 6bit+frc, whereas Samsung one is 8bit but 1 hdmi port. Reviews of both are a mixed bag on Amazon but LG seems a little better than...

    Am I the only one or discounts on Amazon seem pretty dull compared to Flipkart this season?

    Flipkart deals

    For anyone who is purchasing SSD or HDD, its better to purchase them together if one of the item costs less than ₹5000 after discounts. Quoting my example - a) As separate orders - 1) 860 Evo 500gb SSD: 5299 - 530 [10% on SSD] = 4769 [Here since the order is less than ₹5000, I didn't get the...
