A few days back, a Singnet CSO called asking me to renew my contract which had expired for 2 months.
Here's the snippets of the convo:
Oper: Hi. Are u free to talk?
Oper: We are having a promo for SNBB. The MIO TV and free 1 month of subscription.
Me: (In my mind) What the heck? So long already still same promo? (Replying) Nah. Not interested. Offer not good enough.
Me: I missed out on the macbook promo due to overseas.
Oper: Oh. That want have to wait. (Me) o.O! Wait for March fair loh.
Me: Ok. I shall wait. Bye.
Another 1 TB for my collection
Hope there'll be good CF card deals!
not necessarily. If you do find and buy a external hdd cheaper then usual, make sure you get an unfilled local distributor warranty card for it as well. from what i heard, the local distros dont service parallel import items but in case lost the warranty card, the distributor can verify their stock or not by serial number.
You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
I planning to pick up a Plasma/LCD TV. Do you think it will better to buy from the IT show or outside. The stalls at the fair normally give a lot of deals such as free washing mc,home theatre etc + vouchers,rt? but do they jack up the price?
Moral of story, if things fail as they sometimes do, just livewith it!(not very philosophical eh!)
At the current prices, you can get 2 500gbs and a nice solid casing for less than $200. I still remember the days when a 20mb hard disk cost me like $800! (Way back in 1988).
Just got a wd 500gb for $80 at SLS, got scratch and win somemore... won a 2.5" 500gb hdd! Hehehe... basically free lah!
Any harddisk these had a small probability of failing on you. Be it Seagate, Samsung or WD. I just depends more on your luck that the brand of the harddisk.
Check out Newegg.com for user ratings of the various harddisks models out there and u will get a better idea of which one to go for.
I went for WD caveir Black 200$, mainly cos it has good reviews + 5 yr warranty. I have always been a seagate user, until they reduced their warranty period from 5 years to 3 years.
