Casio Vintage Digital Watch  - For Men : Watch
Price: Rs. 625
This Item is currently Out of Stock.
stainless steel version of F-91W
on 22 April 13
manish rated:
first to review certified buyer

i had already reviewed f-91 w on july '12. just adding to the review...it is same as F-91 W.the strap is light weight stainless steel. the case is chrome plated plastic. strap is single locking, should have been double locking...though the size of strap is big, OK for adult size wrist. double locks are more safe as i had my single lock 12 year old timex ironman stolen on crowded mumbai locals right from my wrist!!!
but over all THIS WATCH IS SIMPLY AWESOME, VERY MATURE LOOKS. ultra high recommendation. mind u the LED is Dim and if u have reading glasses more than +2.0 u will need to have then on to see the time.
go for big display electro luminescent backlight watches, if u want to see time w/o glasses or a big numbered analog one.
this time the watch came packed in super sexy casio box and all the papers and manuals.imported in april'13!!!
i have learnt that though it is assembled in china(case+strap+packing) the main module and display are still made in japan - in the original factory!!! amazing watch as it is a 2 decade old design - unchanged - collectors item :)

Legendary watch...:)but small size strap and...:(
on 19 July 12

Got The Legend Delivered Today from Another Legend in India--Flipkart:):):)...BUT...no manual...no imported from japan tag...just plain white cardboard-visiting card size insert and polythene packing...NO Warranty Card From Casio India...first reaction was...it is a Genuine Casio as there are so many fakes around...but the buckle strap is small for an adult(only three holes left in my case,i have a normal size wrist and like to wear digital watches in a loose fit)...the watch slipped to the corner of the wrist after some hours...strange that the strap on the holes side is long but on the buckle side is short...though it will fit school going kids below 15 years, correctly...flipkart should have mentioned this with an option for an adult size larger strap.now one more thing i want to mention...as this watch bring my teenage memories from mid-eighties when digital watches were, the in-thing and very costly...anybody with more than +2.0 reading glasses will not be able to see time clearly w/o them...infact w/o my +1.50 i cannot read the date and day properly:(though with some practice i will get used to it.in day light it is much clearer...and yes the display is Crisp...i got this watch for timing my 3km jog and 30 km cycle rides on my 21 gear hybrid in the monsoons...i just love the light feel,hourly chime and the alarm(though i will download the manual from net to fathom so as to how to do lap timing for two laps)...also the LED light bulb is dim...i will buy another casio/QnQ watch with electro-luminiscence and BIGGER TIME DISLAY SIZE from flipkart but the wrist size + manual + correct size in milimetres of the entire watch HAS to be mentioned in the product information on flipkart...minus the irritating watch dial going to the left side of the wrist and while zeroing the stop watch,the light bulb is switched-on as it is the same switch...i still give this Legend five out of five stars*****and yes the 7-5 Year battery replacement(more light bulb/alarm/chime/stop watch use,less it lasts)is very easy 10 minute DIY Job...you just need small philips size screw driver...tutorials are on youtube:)...DoNotMissBuyingThisLegend...and yes this blue colour lined model looks better than the yellow-ocre lined model:) though i would have loved it more,if the buckle intead of black plastic,be in stainless steel,so that the CASIO embossing can be seen clearly...what i like most about this watch is that the stop watch on/off/on switch is the right-down alone switch...incidentally i surfed the net/wiki for this particular info before ordering :D...i pray it was useful reading.God Bless Flipkart.OM.

maybe flipkart changed the item...from last year as mine is a april 2012 import and the stuff is simply great!!! no wobbling no rubber smell....a real cutie pie...it is not for big smart phones...fits my samsung very well and the best part is that i do not have to pick my cell to see who is calling...and you an switchon yer blue tooth ear piece...Love this product...great finish and the iron grill looks very nice and strong. i am sure this black beauty that enhances the black gorgeous samsung steel finish mobile further will last for atleast 10 year...may buy another one for my elder brother :) AND MAYBE MORE...
another point if yer home is like mine that has three digital CAS connections and family members keep on loosing/finding remotes of set top boxes...i have bought three spare remotes...and THIS MOBILE HOLDER IS A GRRREAT PLACE TO KEEP THESE REMOTES AND BEING HEAVY+ STRONG IT HANDLES BIG REMOTES EASILY...and this mobile holder looks great next to the LED tv's or on glass mounted peg tables :)

Flipkart goes Six Sigma !!! in telling blatant lies.
on 31 August 13
manish rated:

as i was building my hackintosh (tonymacx86 based) and each and every part of it HAS to be of the same specificatioin which apple uses, so i bought Lite-on ihas124-02 DVD writer and 1TB seagate barracuda st31000524as from flipkart...now for the seasonic power supply i went for this particular one. it was available at nehru place,new delhi at a reputed shop(mind u 'tirupati' its service center is here only)...i called the flipkart 1800 number before ordering. they told me that a flipkart technical team will call me later. the call came and the techie promised me that unlike the specs mentioned here this Silent series(it has a 120mm double ball bearing cooling fan) is an 80 plus bronze &MODULAR as the photo mentions...when the order came it was a non-modular one. i called flipkart again. the techie dept told me that they will ship a modular one and please return this non-modular. i kept the non-modular and asked for the modular one to be delivered...2 days later AGAIN a non-modular was delivered...i just opened it and refused to take the order. the delivery boy was same and hence understood. now i paid Rs250 more to flipkart and had to wait for 5 days...flipkart has LOST THE TRUST I HAD. i again called the 1800 number and asked about this mess. the answer was that they will return the money in my bank and WILL DELETE THE MODULAR PHOTO...this was May'13 last week ???...AND IT IS STILL HERE ON AUGUST 31. incidentally i kept the order...this sea sonic 80 plus bronze is a must buy and a world class product...if you want ,go for the 80 plus gold modular in 520 watts, but as far a psu's are concerned sea sonic is the world leader...my mobo is a ga-h77ds3h.ver 1.1. cpu i3-3225. cabinet cooler master k281...lastly this psu is designed as a bottom mounted so get yer cabinet accordingly.

Transcend JetFlash 760 8 GB Pen Drive : Pendrive
Price: Rs. 494
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Excellent for connecting to LED TVs for watching movies
on 21 October 13
manish rated:
certified buyer

Firstly, this is a USB3.0 drive and it is mentioned on the pack itself, Read upto 55MBPS and Write, upto 5MBPS. Upto means maximum speed. As I have been using these(2.0) retractable Transcends for the last 4 years, this one did not disappoint. I am getting speed transfer of an average upto 300MB/minute, while writing a 2GB movie. Read speed is blistering at 50MBPS.
Secondly, I bought it specially to transfer movies from Desk Top to USB. Our new TVs have double USB ports, so they can duplicate on the LED TV itself. Small size drives are a pain to connect at the side of the Wall mounted TVs. Dangling USB cord connectors are a no-no, and may even degrade quality if watching a FHD Movie(thru USB Cords). So Size Does Matters.
Thirdly, I got the drive on 4 Oct'13 and it was imported brand new on 7/13(August'13), with all the import stickers, from Transcend Taiwan.
For High Speed Data transfer from Computer to Computer, I will go for a 16/32 GB USB 3.0 drive and faster ones than this. But remember, the real-time data transfer speed depends a lot upon your computer configuration, and RAM Speed i.e of both the connected machines. Whether you have SSDs(solid state drive) installed or not, and the kind of data being copied also effects the transfer speed.

Btwin Cycling Gloves 7 : Sport Glove
Price: Rs. 1099
In Stock. Delivered in 4-5 business days.
great gel padded gloves for brevets...motor cycling and car rides too :)
on 30 March 13
manish rated:

used these gloves for long brevets and go for week-end 100km-century cycle rides...very comfortable and gives excellent grip. entire pad is calf leather which breathes well in hot weather and the upper is nylon, keeps cool. highly recommended for long distance cycling. the surprise is that they are superb for long motor cycle rides too, though some prefer thick re-inforced leather ones for motor cycles. the best part is that these cycling gloves are just awesome when i go for long intra-city car rides, they just make the steering more responsive as i have large hands and some car steerings are small to hold. xxl fits my 20.5 cm hand. though the only drawback is that they do not have wrist straps. on the other hand, the absence of wrist straps makes it easy to use any electronic equipment i.e when you are using navigation/computers in cycle/motor cycle/car and specially while using my macbook...great palm rest ;)

One of the best heavy cable lock with unpickable computerised keys
on 17 October 12
manish rated:
first to review

got it few months back(white is the best)...gives you a comfy feel to lock your cycle with it...can be used for motorcycles/helmets...but it is a bit heavy as the steel cord is thick.I Hope Flipkart adds to their catalogue the high risk b'twin chain and lock & the Rs1500 thicker version of this lock which has a one inch thick steel braided cable and weighs 2Kgs!...this is highly recommended.thx flipkart now i know where to buy the second one...and a bit cheaper...delivered at home :D

Philips SBCHL140/98 Wired Headphones : Headphone
Price: Rs. 269
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
basic headphone, average performance and value for money.
on 21 November 13
manish rated:
certified buyer

There are many cheap and bad quality headphones available in the market. This Philips, is of fairly decent quality, and comes packed, with all the import stickers, hence is authentic. This one is my reserve headphone in case the main is busy. Quality is what you pay for; still I will buy again, if my reserve also gets, busy :) The cord length is just enough for a front panel desk top/ lap top use. If you need it to connect it to your Small TV, go for the ones with bigger cord length.

Fiama Di Wills Aqua Pulse Shower Gel : Body Wash
Price: Rs. 150
This Item is currently Out of Stock.
just ok...to be used with a wet loofah sponge only.
on 16 July 12
manish rated:

I bought it as the sticker said "Voted Product of the Year 2011"-Consumer Survey of Product Innovation.though the fragrance is excellent...a loofah sponge should be given free with ALL Shower Gels instead of any rebate and as one shower uses atleast 25 ml...should come in a bigger pack say 330 ml.will not buy it again...will try Pure Game Shower Gel from Flipkart instead.also the date of manufacture/batch is at the transparent bottom(bubble jet black print)barely visible in the Mall i bought it from.Price should be less or more quantity given.
