  1. @radicaldude Its the 2019 pro version and one of the only devices to be able to do Dolby Vision with Atmos in an mkv container.
  2. Same story here... Received the Series X in a plastic bag badly torn at the edges. No internal damage but that's pretty bad service. The console works alright though.
  3. So what did you redeem first ? 7+1 months of gold followed by 24 months of Gold via gift card?
  4. I have been doing the same thing. Initially for first 3 months I was extra careful but then it was a bit annoying for me so I started using it normally. Now 2.5 years later and 7k+ hours later on my C9, it has been a non issue. 80% usage was as desktop screen and 20% for streaming /PS5 etc. The general advice of don't leave it on when having a static bright screen is all I followed. 8-10 hour HDR gaming sessions caused no issue. Even with Age of Empires 4 having many static HUDs, nothing got retained and I completed the game in a week to 10 days. So just be sensible with the usage and enjoy the TV! @NitroNeo
  5. Got an SSD for the PS5 but will be initially used in PC for few months.
  6. Actually I had an x570 motherboard 3800x plus Strix 3080 based build from 2020 that I was gradually shifting from over the past 6 months. Most of the parts were bought in exchange plus cash from my local dealer. He had a customer looking for Asus 3080 so he offered me option to buy 3080ti/3090 and I chose this card. So most of the build is made like that. I did pay additional 50k for the 3090 but I was desperate for an all white 011 Mini build so I obliged.
  7. So my tapatalk seems to be broken for IVG. I am getting Forum SSO error 2.
  8. It is for sure cheaper to get a separate heatsink and apply it but I am just holding out for a pre-applied one for no rational reason.
  9. Yeah I know separate heatsinks will do the job but still wanted to buy the SN850/Firecuda 530 with heatsinks.
  10. 1. Some users reported speed issues with the 980 Pro with 1/2 TB models whereas the SN850 runs a bit hot. If possible get the SN850 with heatsink as aftermarket heatsinks quality will vary. If price is no barrier then the Seagate Firecuda 530 is the one to get. Also, once the update goes live we will have a better sample size to make a decision. 2. I have been trying to get the 2 TB version the SN850 for the past month or so but is not available in India yet it seems. Will be using it in PC initially and then maybe the PS5 once my digital library grows.
  11. Until relations improve with China, end user e-commerce will be impacted. One good thing with private couriers is that they get clearances really fast but do charge Rs. 300-500 extra as service charge. Also if your shipment is small and light (like the thermal pads) you are much more likely to avoid scrutiny. Best route for overseas purchase is still Amazon US with Oregon billing address (no tax) routed to India. But the thing must be actually worth it to go through these hoops + 43% import duty.
  12. Well, to be fair I was using my Indian credit card behind a VPN so they blocked the transaction. Subsequently I raised a dispute and was asked for those documents. I can only use that specific card now to buy from them.
  13. Cool, which one? Do share your details and experience. In this case I used Buyandship but only because they have a China warehouse. Otherwise Hopshopgo and Shopandship for US/Europe. I really did not want to order from China as it often gets caught up in Indian cutoms and then its a hassle to get it released. Also Aliexpress will take your Photo ID proof alongwith a picture of yourself holding the card and latest bank statement! I was desperate as my 3080 was overheating otherwise I wouldn't have complied with such absurd demands. The goods took 7-10 days to reach the warehouse and then some more days to reach Hong Kong. From Hong Kong it reached me in 5 days I think. For peace of mind, I reckon you should order from Amazon US as it is so much smoother. Buy pads during sale. Almost equal to Aliexpress price sometimes! Overall cost was 5.5k for 10 pads of various sizes.
  14. If you want to properly repad a 3080/3090 AIB card then various thickness thermal pads would be required and some of them are not available in India/absurdly priced.
  15. No they aren't. I used a freight forwarding service.
  16. Aliexpress. The Amazon ones were way too overpriced.
  17. Gelid Thermal Pads Repadded my Strix 3080 with these beauties. Reduced VRAM temps by 20 degrees!
  18. Have been using this for over 18 months and can confirm it's a beast of a mouse. Use Logitech Options to tweak various gestures. You can set program wise gestures also.
  19. Has there been any progress in ordering from Aliexpress to India? I tried using VPN and ordering to a freight forwarder but the card gets declined.
