Letsbuy is dead but what about refunds

Till now you all might be aware of the fact that Flipkart completes the acquisition of Letsbuy and shutdown the website for good. But i am among the few unlucky ones who had ordered from Letsbuy just before its complete shutdown and surprisingly they accept the payment without any notice.

Now my payment is struck with them and i am calling their customer care every day to enquire about the status but they don’t have any concrete answer to my queries. The order in reference here consists of a couple of things that is a PS3 Game and a PS3 controller which become out of stock just after my purchase and makes me suspicious that something is wrong with Letsbuy and after 4 days Letsbuy is finished.

If you also have same problem like me than please comment in the comments section below about the status of your refunds.

Samsung Galaxy S3 gets a price tag in India

Samsung’s much hyped next generation Galaxy series smartphone Galaxy S3 will be priced at around Rs. 38,900. Indian ecommerce giant Flipkart had already listed Galaxy S3 for pre-order at Rs. 38,900. We here at UB7 are definitely not happy with the price tag of this hyped phone. S3 do packs a lot of raw power and beats other Quad Core smartphones like HTC One X with a decent margin. Synthetic benchmarks show S3 to be way ahead as compared to One X but still price will be the one deciding factor here. I am not saying that HTC One X is rightly priced. At 36,000 it will also be absent from the wish list of many potential smartphone buyers.

Galaxy S3 is the successor of the much popular previous generation Galaxy S2. Some of factors where Galaxy S3 leads are listed in the table below:

Asus releases Nvidia GTX 690 in India at a price tag of massive Rs. 71,000

ASUS, one of the most popular GPU manufacturer had recently launched the all new dual GPU solution from Nvidia GTX 690 at a massive price of Rs. 71,000. At that price one can build an entire desktop computer with some serious components capable of playing of playing future titles at 1080P easily. But still there is a word called Enthusiasm and here Nvidia is targeting only enthusiasts who want the best of the best. I would really like to advise these enthusiasts to wait for AMD 7990 which will be released some where near July, 2012. After that prices are sure to come down. 71K is really a insane price for a single component if you ask me.

Flipkart, India’s most popular online site is the one who had listed this Dual GPU for sale. Here is the screenshot showing you the price and a Buy Now option.

gtx 690 price in india

At approximately Rs. 33,000 one can pick a GTX 680 from Asus and GTX 690 is nothing but two GTX 680 chips on one board. You can SLI two GTX 680 at a price of around Rs. 64,000 (after bargaining) and this will give you more performance than a singly GTX 690. Though the power requirements in case of SLI is on the higher side but it will not be a major concern of you are using a good quality 80+ Gold certified Power Supply with a wattage rating of at least 800 Watt. There is one more advantages in doing SLI. In case if one of the card gets kaput than you have it’s brother for supporting you through the time required for defective card’s RMA but in case of GTX 690 if a problem occurs than you will be left with no option other than to get back to some old graphic card.
