      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Great Product

    Got this for my friend who loves to watch movies.Hence would require lot of storage for the 700mb movies.

    USB 3.0 is the next big thing for storage devices,both pen drives and external hard drives with superfast transfer speeds depending on your system configuration and the hard drive speeds as well.

    I am able to transfer files as large as 5gb in a matter of 60secs through the USB 3.0 ports.Haven't tested it on the USB 2 ports so cant say much about transfer speeds there.

    Remember you hav...

    Not the Best Option

    Hello Friends,

    Did not buy this product through Flipkart. Bought this from a store 5-6 months back. Used it quite a lot, was working fine.
    Few days back it stopped functioning. Tried to connect to other laptops but did not work. Had a lot of important files, now worried whether I can retrieve the data or not.

    Seagate would be a better option as I will be buying that next and this time through Flipkart.

    Dead in less than 10 months

    16 Sep 2013:
    The hard drive just stopped working some time back even though it was used only 7-8 times to copy data to-from PC. It was still in the bubble wrap that it came in so no question of any kind of physical impact that could have damaged it.

    Important data lost.

    Trying to use the warranty, hope something works out soon.
