Transcend MicroSD Card 16 GB Class 10 : Memory Card
Price: Rs. 500
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
The REAL story after a year of use. DO NOT BUY
on 10 June 13
Sayan rated:
certified buyer

I bought this a year ago for Rs 1100/-
First it was giving me excellent speeds. Write at 15MB/s

now, less than a year later, it struggles to cross 7MB/s.

worth the money? not really.

plus transcend cards are really brittle. One 8GB class 10 literally pulverised in my wallet.

Better to buy simple sandisk class for(which gives consistent speed for a lifetime)
Or go for Samsung ones. Samsung is a leader in making highj quality and performance memory chips, including SSDs, RAMs for both desktop (DDR3) and graphics cards(DDR5), as well as flash memory.

EDIT: After 1.5 years, this seems to have had it.
first it started with loosing data, then hanging my phone (which i blamed on phone software by mistake)
now after i formatted it, it refuses to even show up in disk management.

TOTAL WASTE OF RS1100.
and i tried, but apparantly there is no way to avail warranty.

SO PLEASe do NOT BUY.

XOLO Win Tablet : Tablet
Price: Rs. 19990
This Item is permanently discontinued.
So many idiots tarnishing a product with their misguided bigotry
on 11 June 14
Sayan rated:

This is in reply to the top rated comments

Stop comparing this to android tablets,
THIS RUNS THE SAME OPERATING SYSTEM AS A COMPUTER YOU DOLTS.
This means you can install pretty much everything that runs on your PC. (yes even games)

stop saying its only 1GHz processor. CPU speed is completely meaningless in this day and age of different CPU architectures. This is a uncomparetively faster than even a 8Core CPU in your android device because this has capabilities(instruction sets) that the ARM device your android uses can only dream of having.

Seriously.... If you dont know something dont spread misguiding information , you only end up looking like fools to the any one who knows even ABC about computers.

Rating this 5stars to balance the idiots and at 20k its a good bargain for real professionals to whom android tablets are pretty useless and require x86 based applications.

Zebronic ZEB-450W-T SATA PLUS 450 Watts PSU : PSU
Price: Rs. 818
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Zebronic PSUs are the worst value in the market.
on 13 August 13
Sayan rated:

Zebronics PSUs overprice their power supplies even though they use the same cheap quality as other brands like iball etc.

Even frontech PSUs are better than this.

Plus zebronics often will be seen quoting 80+ efficiency. however, their Powersupply has never been certified.

google for plug load solutions to get a list of all certified PSUs

the linked organisation is are the ones who give the certification.

Please thumb up so that others are not tricked again!

WD Blue WD10EZEX 1 TB Internal Hard Drive : Internal Hard Drive
Price: Rs. 3840
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Good VFM
on 15 August 13
Sayan rated:
certified buyer

First why did i choose WD?
because i have owned seagate, WD and hitachi drive over the years... And only the WD and hitachi are still alive. Hitachi is now owned by WD.
MY Hitachi is 8 years old, been using it for the OS drive, and it does not have a single bad sector!
My seagate barracuda 160GB (bought 1month after the hitachi) died in 4 years.
Im not saying that Seagate is bad. i have bad luck with them, i know someone who buys seagate and his luck seems to be better with them :D

Why Blue?
I dont buy green drives because their green power saving features makes the drives slow, even for use as storage drives.
Black ones are too expensive, and not worth the extra money just because for storage.
So the blue drives are the best (well, red drives are the best but no one keeps WD red drives here.)

Speed:-
Write - 190MB/s max
Min: 50MB/s

Avg is 150MBps which is stated in the specs.

I strongly suggest downloading the "WD arconis true image" tool from their site. makes the formatting of the new drive very very fast (10secs)

unfortuntaly Flipkart reduced the price by 100rs just 2 days after i bought it from here.

a small spoiler to others... when you buy a new hdd, it is not partitioned or formated. so ti will not show up in my computer. dont think of this as the drive is dead.

even if the drive is dead, there is a small chance of that, as they are shipped from a long distance away. So just return and get a replacement.

Cooler Master Elite 310 Cabinet (Blue) : Cabinet
Price: Rs. 1853
This Item is permanently discontinued.
One of the best cabinets out there.
on 22 July 12
Sayan rated:

This cabinet is the cheapest from the stables of PC cooling leader Cooler Master.
But being the cheapest does not mean this cabinet lacks utility. It provides a lot at such a small price.

First of all lets look at the cooling.
You can in all accommodate two of 140/120mm fans and one 120mm fan.
Fan locations include 2 140 or 120mms at the rear or on the side panel, and one 120mm at the front.

The best setup would be:-
Use the rear as EXHAUST
Use the FRONT as INTAKE
And if you HAVE a Graphics CARD USE side as exhaust
else
AS INTAKE.

thats all of the stock specifications, now, there is endless modding scope for this cabinet, and being a modder myself i love it. there is plenty of space all around for accommodating another 3 120/140mm fans!

definitely the best choice if you have a tight budget specially since CM build quality is much much better than any local ones.

i use this in most of the systems i assemble. for myself though, i use a NZXT Guardian 921RB

flipkart should add NZXT cases too. they are too rare in india.

You can even buy this blindfolded.
on 07 February 12
Sayan rated:

Seriously, you dont need to think twice before buying this.
AMD's APUs have really sunken their teeth in this territory now. thanks to AMDs planning for development of mobile market.

This has the A6-3400M. A6 is the second best series of APUs AMD has to offer. APU means that the graphics card(yes an actual graphics card, not like the inbuilt ones on intel, eg HD3000, HD4500 etc) is built into the processor itself.

Advantages??
1. low power consumption!
2. excellent graphics
3. huge battery life

Result? Any laptop with an APU is full of WIN!

if you compare prices to a competitor, you will get a laptop with an i3 and no graphics. the disadvantages of that is:
1. no graphics, and hence you wont be able to play games, on the other hand the AMD APU can play latest games on medium/high settings pretty well!
2. EVEN if you get an i3 with a dedicated graphics card:
a. your power consumption will be high hence battery life will be low!
b. all the i3 having laptops i used have a very bad problem of
hanging.

After buying this laptop i would advise you to upgrade the RAM to 1866MHz 4GB of RAM and have it fitted and configured by a professional.

why did i say that? see... the performance of the graphics card depends on the RAM in your system, so the better the RAM the better is the performance in games!

hope this is helpful

cheers!

AMD 3.4 GHz AM3 Phenom II 965 Processor : Processor
Price: Rs. 6784
This Item is permanently discontinued.
Really good
on 10 December 11
Sayan rated:
certified buyer

This CPU probably the best choice in the X4 phenom II range. And, i hate to disagree with others, but AMD and Intel calculate their TDP or typical dissipation power in different ways (AMD rates the max, whereas intel rates the avg). even though intels may be rated lower power they are actually more than that. Usually its the same, if not intel being hotter. This is evident as intels will go to anything like 70C, where as AMDs idle at almost room temparature and never go past 60C.

This quad core is perfect as most application nowadays dont utilize more than 4 cores.

Perfect choice for gaming. I prefer this over all i3's and the lower models of i5 (SB).

And being an AMD this is real fun to overclock! Also the cooler provided is awesome, with 4 HEATPIPES! better than the aluminium crap on competitors.

Overall, if you want performance at a low price, without having your computer acting like a room heater, this CPU is perfect.

Nokia C6-00 : Mobile
Price: Rs. 11519
In Stock. Delivered in 3-4 business days.
Most People probably dont know how to use phones
on 21 September 11
Sayan rated:

This phone is awesome, start with the awesome picture taking capabilities.

and OH MY the video quality at 640*480 is so crisp. can be rivalled by sony's only! i know some people had issues, but all it takes is a 10 min software update that happens automatically when you plug it in to your PC with OVI and an internet connection. All settings remain exactly the same, no change, only software gets updated.

the new verion 40.xx.xx.xx is really good. Opera (the latest versiob, which has a habit of crashing) does crash, but my phone doesnt! Not even restart! It just closes the opera APP!

also i get 2.5 days when using medium 2G internet and 2 to 4hrs music everyday.

this comes with lifetime FREE GPS! its so accurate if i run across our flat, it shows movement!

QWERTY keyboard has a really nice tactile feel to it. Definitely better than samsung ones. and slightly better than the nokia n97mini. the top row is kinda cramped but easy when you get used to it.

as for the touch screen, it is VERY RESPONSIVE. infact its one of the best resistive touch screens i have seen on phones!

The 2GB microSD provided may seem enough but nokia maps takes up a lot of space.
In case you want to upgrade to higher capacities make sure you go for atleast an 6Class rated microSD card. 6 class means it card can offer upto 6MB/s sustained read/write. this is essential. if you use less than a 6 class, your phone WILL hang, and video recording will cause problems!
recommend buying from here as local shops alawys try to give the crappy class 2 cards.

i bought this and still cant stop fidgiting with it!

Grid 2 : Av Media
Price: Rs. 990
In Stock. Delivered in 3-4 business days.
OH NOES WHAT HAVE YOU DONE CODEMASTERS!
on 02 June 13
Sayan rated:
certified buyer

They have really done it this time. Forced by the success of NFS., they decided to "dumb" down quite a bit from the original grid. This is now purely arcade.

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!

Pros:-
Exceptional Graphics
Very low system requirements. People with atleast HD5770/6770/Nvidia GTS 460 will be able to run it at max settings. Also seems to use 4 threads easily.
Wide range of competition types.
Online portion is also a different type of career where you win money from races and use it to buy cars.
Split screen gaming with two/more people on same computer

Cons:-
Very arcade like game mechanics. toy like feeling.
Hard to play without a gamepad/controller.
No cockpit view like before(which must be a consequence of the dumbing down part)
End of race animations cant be skipped

Contents of package:-
1. 1pc Game DVD
2. 1pc Small instruction booklet with key.

They emailed me the promo-code for the pre-order bonus. With clear instructions on how to activate it. Kudos to Flipkart for that.

i still rated it 5 stars because its still an epic amount of fun to play. Though its slowly becoming more and more mainstream and boring like nfs.

EDIT: after a lot of major and minor upgrades by codemasters, this game is really good now. Very enjoyable and a bit more accurate mechanics. Still not as close to dirt3, but this will be more enjoyable by a larger portion of the community!

PowerColor AMD/ATI HD 7770 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card : Graphics Card
Price: Rs. 8550
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Good Card, Bad Price
on 21 August 12
Sayan rated:
first to review

This is a good card. It doesnt use a lot of power, so it doesnt generate a lot of heat either.

however since its at ~10K now, the 6850 is a much better choice at the moment.

the 6850 exceeds by a good margin in memory bandwidth, pixel fill rate and GFLOPs(computational power)
