We all use some or the other form of electronic devices today – the most common being the laptop and computers, mobile, digital camera and tablets. Two things that all users focus on while using these electronic devices are – the battery and the storage capacity of the device. The electronic storage devices are the ones that enable easy storing of data. They include internal and external hard drives, floppy disks, USB drives, ZIP disks, CDs, magnetic tapes and SD cards.
Though their primary work is to store data, the electronic storage devices also help extracting data files and porting data from one electronic device to another. Technically there are five types of storage options:-
a. External hard drive - they are the removable types that can be attached and detached from the computer as required.
b. Solid state drive (SSD) that are highly portable
c. Network attached storage (NAS) that can hold good amount of data
d. USB Drive that is portable and robust
e. CD and DVD (optical drive) that are generally used for storing songs and movies, and lastly
f. Cloud storage that is a remote storage system.
All the above local storage devices sell at various price points – the USB drives being the cheapest and the external hard drives being one of the costliest in the Indian market.
The electronic storage devices are easily available at most of the online electronic stores that sell computer and accessories; camera and accessories. It is important to buy all electronic accessories from a reliable online store. This is because many of the models are copied and fake items are randomly sold in the market today. Faking electronic items is quite simple as technology can be easily duplicated. Hence it is best not to buy electronic items and accessories like the electronic storage device from the offline hardware/software market or even any random online site.
As informed and educated consumers, we need to behave responsibly too. As per reports about 25% of fake products in India are sold online at low-rated and dubious websites. Hence one needs to be aware of such sites and shop with only such ecommerce sites that have earned their reputation over the years by gaining the confidence of their customers with their customer-centric approach and international service standards.
An e-store like the Paytm Mall is trusted by millions of people in the country. This is so because they have built the reputation of firstly featuring good and genuine branded and secondly because their service standards are simply impeccable. The ecommerce site itself has become a brand to reckon with. With its brand stamp like the Paytm Mall promise, consumers readily believe the quality of products featured on their site and App. And the online portal does not let the belief of their customers to waver and dwindle. The marketing team of the virtual mall keeps strategizing new promotional offers to keep their customers’ loyalty.
