    The middleman has been successful in keeping the seal on carton box intact. I suspect box was opened from the bottom fold side somehow.

    Experience Sharing – Laptop buying from amazon India

    On Digit Laptop page this product is showcased with Buy-Now button and it appears that the specs are simply copied from Amazon. Clicking Buy-Now button takes me to the same ASIN on Amazon.

    Does LED tubelight break or explode?

    @soorajdigit LEDs run on constant small DC voltage and current. Since India has 230V AC, there’s a power driver circuit whose one end is 230V AC connecting to mains and other side is DC or whatever it takes to run the LED tube and bulb w/o a transformer inside it. This may develop fault. And...
