Hi Somak, if the quality is so inconsistent, no point in buying bolton at all.

You are very right vivek but there are no alternatives in Kolkata other than building your own drives .
The import route is very expensive .I think what sumit did is the only solution ie building your own driver.

nicely told.. I have been searching for a long long time for good drivers. There is not a single alternative available other than Bolton.
