WD Blue WD10EZEX 1 TB Internal Hard Drive : Internal Hard Drive
Price: Rs. 3999
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.

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!

Eset NOD32 Antivirus Version 5 1 PC 1 Year : Security Software
Price: Rs. 340
In Stock. Delivered in 3-4 business days.
Best antivirus out there
on 11 April 12
Sayan rated:

This is the best antivirus out there:
1. Does not pester you with pop up boxes every now and then
2. You dont need to tell it to clean your PC.
3. You will never see the glimpse of a virus as it cleans even before it infects your computer
4. Very user friendly
5. Its easy to get back files which were deleted (because they return a false positive)
6. It is very resource efficient. You can run this on the cheapest computer and still wont feel that the computer has slowed down.
7. Extremely fast in cleanin files.
8. Extremely cheap considering how awesome it is.

Cons:- None what so ever.

Would i recommend it: Definitely. All the computers i assemble have nod32 in them.

Trust me and buy it. you will never regret it.

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.

Zebronic ZEB-450W Gold Series 450 Watts PSU : PSU
Price: Rs. 834
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!

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.
