3.Which one is the best??
4.Budget-Rs7000Max

I posted flipkart link only as a reference. Flipkart prices have become very high. OP will get best deal if he buys from local market.

Sometimes the local market prices are higher than flipkart prices.
I posted the infibeam links in case he wants to buy online.
I'm gonna buy a Western Digital HDD from infibeam if I don't get it at a lower price from the local market.

Got it from flipkart for Rs.6273...Infibeam usually takes 10 days minm for delivery.For the superfast delivery of flipkart(2days),i guess 100Rs is justified.

I ordered mine from infibeam.

EDIT: It will be delivered between 18th and 20th. -_-"
The HDD I'm buying is Rs. 300 cheaper in infibeam than in flipkart, so it's worth the time taken unless I receive a defective HDD.

Rs 300 is definitely a better saving:I ordered from flipkart as the difference was merely 100 bucks and delivery was made in 2 days FLAT!!Ordered it on 9th and received it on 11th.

Just a personal opinion but I bought their ebook reader pi from infibeam. The ebook reader itself was crap and their after sales service convinced me never to buy anything from them ever again. It was the consensus that the infibeam site was crap and was to be avoided at all times. Has it improved ?

^^ If you are OK with their ~10 days delivery time, you can order it from them. I bought a total of 3 times from infibeam and the only problem I faced is their long delay in delivery.

Oh, that's nice of them. You will probably get that inside next 2 days, depending on your location.

Although Blue Dart courier has delivered two consignments to my address in the last 10 days, the tracking status is now:
'Cnee'S Add Incorrect
Contact Customer Service'
They forgot my address in just 10 days and didn't even call me if they didn't find my house. WTF!
