One of the best. It forced Bose to get off their a*s and modernize their overpriced QC lineup.

Fake sale was in my cart the moment I went to checkout it was gone 

At least amazon was way better ,it was there for a whole day

Amazon doesn't do these slimy shite. Only script kiddies got it. Don't worry Diwali sale will be in 2 weeks after 4th which is Amazon's biggest sale of the year. This one is just to compete with fkrt.

 Nokia looking good...

thinking of stretching another 5k and getting an iPhone 7.

 

Would suggest against nokia. They (HMD) have made a mincemeat of the Nokia brand. There have been numerous cases of poor after sales after few of their handsets developed charging port issues. They have been better past few days, but I would wait n watch/be cautious. 

Their updates are the fastest though and have earned good accolades there. 

 

My vote goes for the M30s, or the A50.

Ofc the King remains Asus ZenFone 6z these days.

 

Getting 3GB RAM these days is a must. 720p has never been an issue for me, esp on a mobile phone.

Yes, charging port issue suffered.

And they took a month to repair it.

And they said it is a regular issue ,use glass protection on screen

It's a great headset but I've tried both the Sony XM3 and the Bose QCII. I own the Bose QCII and can personally vouch for it. The Sony one has a shitload of features but is not that comfortable at all. My friend who owns the XM3 also feels that the Bose is way more comfortable.

Mine's delivered. 

 

But.....

 

One flickering dead pixel. Its almost not noticeable unless you specifically look for it. And goes away sometimes. Its not bothering me except for knowing that I have it lol.

 

So I dont know whether to initiate a return or just keep it. 

 

As far as the monitor is concerned, its pretty decent. Calibration out of the box is kind poor (brightness and contrast are way overblown) and Freesync has to be turned on in the monitor settings for your GPU to detect it as a freesync monitor. Other than that no reason for complaints.

 

My monitor got delivered as well, but I'm on my way to work, so installation will have to wait.

 

Did you get your monitor replaced?

Exactly. The Sony's are more feature packed, but the comfort on the Bose QC35 II is unparalleled. 

 

PS- I personally use the original Bose QC35. 

 

Also any idea if the Echo Dot+Wipro Smart Bulb combo might go back to the 2k/- price?

Is the bulb any good? I know the whole Philips Hue system works better but theyre damn overpriced.

Ordered the Kingston SSDNow A400 120 GB at 1300 bucks as a second boot drive for Linux. Primary one is Windows on Samsung Evo 860 500GB. Any idea on if I should change the Kingston to something else? Just need a secondary drive for Linux and general programming.

I have owned quite a lot of headphones and the comfort argument did hold up for me when it was XM2 vs QC35 II but ever since I switched over to XM3, 

I honestly don't feel that they are more uncomfortable than Bose. They feel quite good. Also, they have legit, useful features like USB C and their app, I would go for XM3 unless 

you bring Bose 700 into the picture, Sony maybe even then. @Outlook
