Livetv and on demand are 2 separate things leh......both exists on ubox as different apps. Ublive = live streaming of various tv channels around the world. Uvod = Instant click and play of drama, variety, movie videos etc. You got subscribe before local cable or not? Singtel and starhub also similar mah.

If you print out the Carousell ad & bring to the shop, why would they deny you the price clearly listed on Carousell?

Whenever in doubt, I've always print out the Carousell ad -- and bring to the seller's retail shop.

I've yet to encounter a case whereby I'm allowed to go self collect, but yet denied the listed price clearly stated on the Carousell ad.

If they list a price on Carousell which they don't honour, then they'll get negative feedbacks on Carousell.

This will affect them if they also sell on Qoo10.

Many Qoo10 buyers also use Carousell & vice-versa.


Personally, I will NEVER buy from the same seller in Qoo10 -- which I've bad experience in Carousell.

Ads on carousell are not legal binding in anyway. Carousell sellers are not obligated to honor the price listed on their ads and i have dealt with PC parts sellers on carousell who listed one price and then tell you another when you private message them. Everything on carousell is just based on trust. By buying on qoo10/lazada, you paid upfront to seller which meant you have already entered a transactional agreement with seller. Seller plays punk at most i just cancel order. Buy on carousell, i go down to shop seller plays punk, i make a wasted trip and waste of time. Leave a bad feedback and so what? Hardly anybody cares about bad feedback on carousell. Anytime seller can just create another account and continue selling. But then by all means you can try to get them to honor the price lor. Nobody's stopping anybody.

Well, if that's the case universally, then NOBODY can EVER buy anything via Carousell; and Carousell should just close down already.

Yet, over the years, I've bought multiple stuff from Carousell sources at attractive prices.

It's OK, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Since you're feel so strongly against Carousell's sources I'll delete earlier posts I shared.

Thanks.

(Don't worry, I'll never share any Carousell sources on HWZ again)

carousell doesn't protect the buyer. It is very easy for scammer or conman to con people. The most you can do is to give bad comments, but the conman can start another account easily.

You never kenna connned, scammed or played out by carousell sellers doesnt mean they dont exist. Fact of matter remains that there is big fat zero buyer protection when it comes to dealing on carousell. Not saying qoo10 or lazada is totally safe, but at least there are means for you to seek recourse when a transaction goes awry. You said it yourself that "everyone is entitled to their own opinion" and you want to call me out for my supposed strong views against carousell?:s13::s22: You dont have to lay it on me with you deleting your carousell links. I didnt force you to do it and as i said, nobody is stopping anybody from buying from carousell.

Chill, Brother.

IMHO,

(I see) the problem with most people (including yourself) -- is that people often (automatically) put Carousell, Lazada & Qoo10 platforms together in a discussion -- as if they belong to the exact same group.

No, they're NOT the same (in many ways), and as such not 100% comparable.

To be clear, as far as Carousell, Lazada or Qoo10 are concerned...

They are NOT operated (or even designed) the same way -- so users should not even have the exact SAME SET of EXPECTATIONS from all of these 3 platforms.

Obviously, most people will say Lazada & Qoo10 are much similar to each other when compared to Carousell; but even Lazada & Qoo10 have their differences.

**
From Day 1,
Carousell are not operated the same way as Qoo10; so if users have the SAME EXPECTATIONS -- in ALL aspects -- from both Carousell & Qoo10, then I'm sorry to say, sadly users are mistaken.

Once you've a better/deeper understanding of what Carousell/Qoo10 can or cannot do for you; you'll then have more accurate/realistic expectations -- when using both Carousell & Qoo10.

(often frustrations/disappointments results when expectations are not meet)

You see, if you expect Carousell to give everything exactly (as) what Qoo10 provides -- then Carousell will ALWAYS FALL SHORT for you -- because Carousell is NOT designed to give the same as what Qoo10 offers in the FIRST PLACE !! :)

I know the strengths & weaknesses of Carousell so I use it accordingly.

This is NOT a thread on Carousell, so I'll stop here.
(Don't worry, I'll not make any further replies regarding Carousell on this thread)

Thanks.

When using UBTV, some channels will buffer at 2kb/s. And some channels will stop buffering halfway. Any idea why? Or I should do some settings?
