Before you start blaming Steam...its an excellent service firstly.
To install from DVD you have to run the Setup file from you DVD 1.
Put DVD in your drive & run autorun.exe. If you already have steam installed it must be closed.
You do not log into Steam & enter keycode directly...the game will install first on your drive through DVD...then Steam will launch (dvd will install it if its not present on your PC)..you enter the keycode & Steam will verify your game files which got installed from DVD (takes 2-3 minutes)
Then Steam will patch the game automatically if there are any patches.
You can't be serious if you say you downloaded 7GB thats your fault...a patch is maximum 100MB-2GB.
I have 20+ retail games on my Steam & this is the procedure to follow.
If you don't know what you're doing don't post misleading reviews about Steam to prevent people from playing this excellent game.
Besides mostly all games require Steam type services these days...EA has Origin...other games use Games for Windows Live & Rockstar use Social Club.
Yes Steam takes a while to start if you close it but its a minor hiccup..Steam is to PC what Xbox Live is to Xbox 360.
If you dislike Steam then there isn't any other option for you other than to consider console gaming.
Regarding the packaging box not present you shouldn't have used it & contacted flipkart if it arrived in bad condition...flipkart would always help you out on that.
This is a decent card for gaming at 720p High/Ultra settings for the latest games eg. Crysis 3, Devil May Cry, Tomb Raider @ ~ 30 fps.
It overclocks fantastically well with Zotac Firestorm utility.
Core 1200 MHz / Memory 6000 MHz giving it almost equal performance to HD7770.
HD7770 is still the better performing card but AMD drivers are horrible just ATI's were written by a friggin' MOOSE back in the day.. lol
Its true..you cannot game at 720p on a HD7770 or any AMD card for that matter via HDMI..coz running it on any non native resolution of your display causes Underscanning of the image in AMD drivers..this problem exists since HD3xxx days & STILL hasn't fixed..& you wonder why AMD continues to make losses.
Stupid company AMD is!
Yes this card is priced a bit higher..but with the stability of the drivers is a sacrifice you SHOULD make.
AMD fanbois will yap on 'TressFX' for Tomb Raider well boo hoo even a HD7850 struggles to give 60 fps with Tress FX enabled.
Only problem I see with Nvidia is non OC/fan adjustment facility within in the control panel itself but its no biggie. Firestorm utility is good.
You get some freebies depending on the time of manufacture of this card eg. TrackMania 2 three day pass or Warcarft unlocks..& right now some in game credit for games like Hawken & Planetside..
Anyway this card was not reliable for me it used to make a 'hiss' noise when running 3D stuff but I got the replacement & all is ok now.
I would recommend this card but mostly I'd suggest you get a GTX 650Ti with 2 GB memory coz 2 GB is a necessity soon.
If you're a hardcore gamer this card will last you 1 year for 720p High settings gaming.
After that its time to upgrade when GTX 7/8 series come out.
Oh & AMD BLOWS!
Rocking man Apple is rocking & THERMONUKING any Android phone/player in existence in sound clarity/loudness via headphones.
Have personally tried Note II, GS3, HTC 8X, One X, Sony phones..without root or some other type of modification android audio is nowhere near the BASS & LOUDNESS of this baby.
If you can afford the iPhone by all means go ahead kind Sir.
But if you're on budget & want best music/video experience with games this BABY is it.
I just keep laughing at the android noobs even with my 4G iPod touch now outputting far superior audio than Note II or GS3 or any junk.
This is for music lovers..& people whose every breath is music!
iPhone itself is a music player first thats why I say if you have money go ahead..Apple loves music they are passionate about music.
No one gives a monkey CRAP about your GHz or number of cores..I just have the best apps,games & music in this BABY right here unless you get a nerdgasm at the number of cores lolz or want to root & run different launchers modifications all day like a noob..man wake up & enjoy life..android is junk flatout junk!
Hell the GPU of this baby is PowerVR SGX 543MP2 dual core graphics faster than any gimmick of android..including Tegra 3, Power VR SGX540 in Nexus, Mail-400 in NoteII, GS3, Adreno 225..the only GPU close to this baby is Adreno 320 in Nexus 4. Even upcoming Galaxy Premier has SGX544 but its single core GPU!
Don't believe me go on Anandtech & read for yourself.
This is essentially a souped up iPhone 4S with better screen (in cell display touch - the Future! Only Sony Xperia V has it yet in android junk land & no windows phone will have this until WP9 haha).
Problem is no GPS reciever so Maps won't work without WiFi but Apple Maps itself is useless so don't bother :P but with WiFi it would be great!
iOS has native GPU acceleration & the OS is not CPU dependant like android junk so this dual core will SMOKE any almost high end android phone..go see benchmark of iPhone 5 vs Note II etc. iPhone 5 is SMOKING that plastic junk!
The only disappointment is price at this price Apple India should be offering 64GB version. That I'll agree with the haters.
60 mW Headphone output vs 40 mW Headphone output for android flagships you do the Math.
Apple ROCKS & all the Android noobs have been SMOKED!
Let the first game you play on this baby be Asphalt 7 Heat..compare the framerate to any top of the line android junk..it'll be better!
Apple for LIFE!
Gonna start off by saying success has gone to Samsung's head..
People want to cry about overpriced Apple products but the fact is 'they deliver'
This phone looks like a plastic gimmick that too for 40k!
I'll grant you the specs are decent but the Octa-Core CPU is another gimmick fact is Samsung doesn't have a power efficient A15 core hence the need for A9 cores.
The GPU thankfully is PowerVR a powerhouse but much lower in grunt compared to iPhone 5..yes coz the iPhone uses lower resolution but still in benchmarks this is being destroyed by a dual core Apple core! LOL!
16GB only!? 32GB should be mainstream now followed by 64GB.
Buy this phone ONLY if you're a technophobe who likes a lot of bells & whistles & 0 practicality.
Seriously some of the stupid features the camera has picture in picture..erase picture..will put the hardcore photoshopper to shame lol.
The screen though is FANTASTIC. Granted.
0 premium feel on the phone..not onscreen button..same old stupid capacitive touch buttons..
Audio quality is great too.
But like I said specs/feature wise it DELIVERS...Design wise its a disaster.
You can't hold it in your hands for more than 20 mins without it slipping out without a case..try it!
2/5 from me..Samsung taking their position for granted & not innovating AT ALL unlike HTC/Sony/Nokia who are trying to come up with different designs/features which rival/better iPhone.
Flipkart removed my review when I spoke about US - India price :-/
Anyway this is the best iPod Touch made till date...a must have if you love Apple.
This thing will SMOKE any of the crap Android phone floating around that includes Note II & GS3.
This has Power VR 543MP2 dual core GPU which alone is 2-3x powerful than Mali-400MP floating in GS2,GS3 & Note II.
Granted the CPU performance is inferior but this isn't android...this is iOS....apps are more GPU dependant here..so don't flame me n00bs..go on XDA & figure out yourself.
Even with the upcoming Galaxy Premier phone which has PowerVR SGX544 this iPod will SMOKE it coz that is only single core in Premier.
Galaxy Nexus etc. any android phone is SMOKE in GPU performance by this iPod except the ones with Adreno 225 & 320 GPU's.
Most importantly this thing gets LOUD. Android phones have crap audio quality & its LOW..talking about Note II & GS3 also..even Beats audio HTC gimmicks.
In loudness & clarity for music via headphones this iPod will SMOKE any android phone in existence.
60 mW headphone output compared to 40 mW for the flagship android phones. No contest.
Yes the price isn't that competitive so thats the only issue & would've liked if this baby had a GPS reciever it doesn't so without WiFi the maps app is useless...talking about maps Apple maps alone are useless so again no issue :P
Get it 'If Every Breath You take is music' ;))
This is a good movie.
I'm a big fan of the Prince of Persia video games & this movie is just perfect!
The art direction & photography is breathtaking.
Special effects could've been better & the story could've used some more magic & twists & maybe better acting from the villains.
Jake Gyllenhall has acted well though & fits the role of Prince perfectly.
Regarding the audio/video of the BluRay
there is 0 complaints - the video bitrate hovers from 19 mbps - 32 mbps. No issue.
Audio - DTS-HD - no issues.
Bonus Issues I loved of this movie..never knew it was shot in Morocco! Love the bonus features.
With flipkart giving discount now this is a great adddition to your collection if you're looking for a decent movie.
Flipkart service was excellent as usual love them!
Got it in 1 day. Packaging was also nice.
Also now I'm gonna grow out my hair just like the movie :P ;))
Beware there is a revision 2 of this card available in the market now..I am not sure which version is this but since Flipkart rocks this is most probably rev 1.0 which is great coz revision 2 has lower clock & memory speeds (inferior parts, voltage circuits)..gigabyte has done this as per the request of AMD coz this was one of the fastest HD7770's..reason is HD7790 is going to release soon.
Another reason why AMD just flat out sucks! I used to like that company but not anymore!
Seriously all the noobs giving 5 star review for this garbage should be ashamed of themselves or are blind AMD fanbois
Firstly AMD India & its distributor should be ashamed for off loading old generation processors on Indian users.
Its a disgrace...Intel launches their latest processors after 1 month of international launch in India & prices them on par with their international price across all their range.
This junk is priced 2x more than its international price & its an old generation processor!!
FX 63xx Piledriver series is already out for 6+ months now & still AMD India & its distributors selling us FailDOZZER crap platform for inflated price probably coz they bought a lot of stock & don't want to make losses or maybe AMD needs cash by hook or crook!!
What else explanation is there?
Shame on AMD India a disgrace of a company!
I have this SSD & its decent based on Sandforce SF-2281 controller..
I'm limited by SATA 2 speed on my laptop so I'm yet to unleash the max performance but AS-SSD gives 510 overall score with 240 MB/s seq. read & 156/MB/s seq. write
This will easily be 350 MB/s + on SATA 3..
Also these things will have a better lifespan coz it uses industries smallest available NAND to consumers.. Toshiba 19nm Toggle mode.
Satisfied with the purchase it doesn't come with any backup software or a 3.5" adapter just a stick glue type holder which is weird.
But I'm satisfied with it.
No firmware updates available as of yet so it seems like a stable drive.
Have Windows 8 on it..from power to usable desktop/start screen in 8 seconds..Core i3 1st gen laptop..AMAZING!
I don't know who said this was 'Plug N' Play' in Windows 8..it isn't!
Maybe you have your windows settings to download driver automatically when new device is connected & were already connected to the internet.
The driver coming from Windows Update labelled 'Realtek 8118U' DOES Not work properly & you'll get frequent disconnections.
Go to TP Link website & download the driver this is version 3.
After obtaining driver from TP Link website everything is running great the range is decent.
The green signal LED is BRIGHT wish I could turn it off..whats the point of a LED..doesn't make any sense.
Anyway the product is good don't have any problems so far & thanks to Flipkart for fast shipping.
