Just a small review of blinkit (formerly grofers). Blinkit started under 10 minutes delivery where I live few months back. Initially it was all good but last few weeks they have started messing up deliveries.

 

Now what they are doing is they are keeping out of stock items in stock on their apps & accepting orders ( Similar complaint from others in my society). For instance, I placed an order of shredded cheese (500 gms) & they delivered 140 gms cheese of a different brand & will refuse return of the said product. All they will offer is a partial refund in their wallet.

Can I get refund from Shiprocket wallet to Bank account?

It's been 2 days and the courier hasn't even been picked up and EDD just keeps on increasing. The cancellation option for courier is not even available after generating the manifest.

Yes you can raise a support ticket for it. I had gotten my wallet balance transferred.

Im about to buy this for noise cancelling headphones to use in office

 

https://www.amazon.in/dp/B0872FKQZZ/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_Q339A5GZQG3471Q4KC4B?psc=1

 

anyone have any other recommendations?

It's decent for the money. The active noise cancelling is not as strong, if you're planning to use it without anything playing.

 

Would suggest going to a Croma / Reliance Digital and testing it out before buying if you're new to ANC headsets.

I am using the same headphones. 2 things related to pricing - 

 

First, it's price usually goes down quite frequently. I bought it last year and see it's price. Just wait a couple of weeks and track it's price. It even goes to around 6.5k during great Indian sale.

The better version from the same company. Sony's XB910N which supports app and gesture control goes to down to about 8.5k!! Which is the current price of CH-710!!

 

 https://www.amazon.in/dp/B09CGB6VRR/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_WS6K00W96JJ8RSYQ1Q1M

 

So, if you can wait till Big Billion/Amazon Day sale. It would be better. Who knows even XM3 might get a big sale price this time. 

 

Now, the sound. It sounds decent. I am good with the sound but when compared to my sound and these headphones, TV speakers sound much better to me. Noise cancelling is ok. Does the job. Didn't use much for office, only taken few calls to test and it worked just fine! 

 

The only downside is that it doesn't get very loud. It's highest volume is not so loud. Rest it's a decent product with decent build quality and decent sound.

Are there any good type C to C cables available?

 

Planning to buy the 25W Samsung charging brick as the default 15w one is just too slow. 

 

Should I get the charger + cable combo from tata cliq or should I get a different and better cable?

Using the Samsung 25W cable with the Amazon Braided C-to-C cable, working perfectly.

AB braided cable is like 1500 bucks. I have the iOS one, and it's terrible. Is the C to C good ? I am also looking for a decent C to C cable, and Amazon pricing is generally between 1500-1700 bucks. At this price, might just buy the Apple C cable. 1900 bucks. Lasts LONG.

Amazon C-to-C has two versions, Usb 2.0 and Usb 3.1

Apple one is 3 feet for 1900 and not braided while Amzon 2.0 6 feet goes for 800 bucks (you will have to search well because sometimes it is out of stock) and 3.1 6 feet going for 1400.

Amazon 2.0 3 feet is 700 bucks.

I don't think 3.1 is needed unless you have specific data transfer use cases.

I've used the braided AB iOS C to lightning cable a few years ago, and it was absolutely crap. Never charged my iPad via laptop, while the official Apple cable never had issues. 

Not a fan of AB cables in general since.

Just got one of those too. It is working fine with my work iPhone with the laptop. I don't have an iPad to test.

Got an Ambrane Type C to C cable and it works flawlessly. Also got an Ambrane charging brick and it fast charges my Pixel 4a.

Need to get a basic color printer for a kid's school needs.

Priority is cost/print although will obviously refill it locally later on.

Any suggestions which are not very expensive and provides a decent value?

Not sure if this is the correct place. Asking for a friend. He just bought s22 ultra and is looking for bluetooth ear buds. 
 

which ones should he go for?

1. Sony - 1000XM4

2. Bose - quietcomfort/soundsport

3. Samsung - Galaxy Buds 2

 

from price perspective there is a huge diff, but he willing to spend more if sony/bose will give better experience with seamless connectivity.

I have the braided one USB A to C and its a pain to use it, for some reason it constantly keeps disconnecting my charging brick from the socket as well and its just difficult to manage haha, can't explain.

Is the amazon 2.1 better than the original Samsung type c to c cable? And I'm assuming there's no difference in charging speed right between 2.1 and 3.1 cable or b/w the samsung original cable and the other third party one like amazonbasics?
