Tasco 30 Telescope with Tripod - Aint worth it!!!

Got loads of work today but still wanted to do some service to the world by posting this. Ordered Tasco 30 telescope on rediff shopping a few days back for Rs.300(all inclusive) Was eagerly awaiting my tryst with the stars

Product review : - Cheap chinese remake was delivered, really doubt if its an original tasco, the telescope is for kids from 8-12 years age. Totally not worth it for Adults.

Distributor Review : - Bhumi collections the guys from whom i ordered the telescope are crooks, they charged me Rs.40 extra for a surprise gift (apparently free surprise gift, but then the product was available for Rs.40 lesser without the gift) that turned out to be a dumb towel a few millimetres long. Again some chinese junk. What more the original box had some gift - the box reads telescope and glow in the night stickers. I dint get the sticker. Bhumi collection are crooks.

Rediff Shopping review: I am convinced now that rediff shopping is loaded with people taking junk from china and dumping it in India. Sad part is that Rediff doesnt allow u to post a feedback longer than 256 characters.

Buyer Review: Yet again i realize that i am dumb :-(

Finally : Hmm... I lost Rs.300 feel sad, this would go into my huge list of "money wasted on stupid stuff" at ISB, the list is led by the Rs,15K i paid for the preterms and currently and includes various other stuff like dominoes cheese burst, unnecessary parties etc.

I bought a similar telescope 2 years ago.. from eBay, and felt the same as you after opening the box.

I found the plastic tripod was little useful.. than the telescope. :-D

OMG, I was just going through eBay to order a telescope and found this not-expensive-at-all Tesco 30 and was at the verge of ordering. Thank god, I thought of checking out this stuff in the net and fell right on your blog.

E-Commerce has become the one of important need for any business or it is another way to handle business easily by providing convenient services to public.

In the last two decades, there have been improvements in the way online business is conducted.
E-commerce sites and applications have contributed a lot to these changes, and the changes have improved how many online traders do business.
Where some sites have over the years improved on various areas with a sole aim of improving on the business experience of both parties. On the other hand some sites are found to be very worst and fraud with their services, came to know after a survey, I have some of examples like, Indiatimes shopping, Timtara, Jabong.com, 100bestbuy, Rediff Shopping, ebay. Even I went through some of consumer forums and also found so many complaints against these sites. I thing Govt. must have take a needy action against these fraud sites.
