  1. Ahh, that explains it, thanks. Although audio quality is pretty important in a podcast... I'm pretty certain Linus himself has quoted the "good audio is more important than good video" term. If the camera was completely out of focus I could ignore it, but a high pitched whurr in the background is pretty fatiguing and hard to tune out. I can't imagine how they'd resolve it though short of something unrealistic like moving the entire set or shutting down the server. That's unfortunate, I hope they figure out some solution though.
  2. Hey everyone. As you can probably see, I'm not that frequent on the forums (... at all), so apologies if this has already been brought up in another thread (I did do a quick search first). In every WAN Show since at least the new office there has been a buzzing noise persistent in the background of the podcast. This is in both the video and the Soundcloud versions. I don't know if this is just me, but it makes the podcast itself a little difficult to listen to. It's not a huge issue, but the buzz is pretty high pitched and annoying. I'm probably not saying anything new, and I appreciate the challenges of producing stuff like the WAN Show. I really enjoy the show, but I've missed quite a few episodes now just because of the audio quality. Just throwing the feedback out there.
  3. My Vessel username is KingEurope My two favourite videos are: https://www.vessel.com/videos/LCoY5zfFf and: https://www.vessel.com/videos/Yj4PbcgKj Amazing competition guys, and good luck everyone! B)
  4. My favourite item would definitely be the Kuhler 1250, I have a cheapy air cooler, so the Kuhler would be great so I can finally overclock B)
  5. I'm not going to lie, I'm posting here to enter the competition, but I do love all your content. I think I first found you from the NCIXTechTips channel about 3 years ago, when I wanted to know whether blue SATA ports meant they were 6Gbps. I ended up finding one of your really early build guides from that, and enjoyed the production values; it felt well made but genuine (most corporate Youtube channels very rarely feel like they have the latter). From that I subbed to NCIX and then LinusTechTips and watched every video since (and most of the ones before). One particular funny memory I have of LinusTechTips is the livestream where you announced that you quit NCIX to found Linus Media Group. I was listening to it on my phone, waiting in the checkout of the supermarket near my university... The fact I remember standing in a checkout so vividly because of your livestream announcement means you guys must have a pretty big impact on me. I felt really excited for you, and I'm really happy that the risk you and your team paid off, because the content has all been fantastic.
  6. I heard of these things, but never actually saw one, so this video was really interesting to me. It's an ad, but a good one, I think I remember them talking about this on the livestream yonks ago too.
  7. Definitely has it's purposes. I remember when Linus reviewed a portable SSD drive (I forget it's name) that him and the crew used for sharing Computex footage between editors. Something like this could have been an alternative. Very niche uses, but interesting product none-the-less. As for the video itself, maybe I missed it, but in future reviews could you list what the generic products are? I know it's not really that important, but a small piece of text in the corner of the graph stating what the generic products are would give us the context on what it's really going up against. Was it the Adata and Kingston drives you shown in B-Roll?
  8. Another competition?! Very generous, Linus My favourite feature would definitely be the speakers, since most laptops have terrible speakers. It's great to see that this one has much better ones.
  9. I was going to pick the custom skin as my favourite feature, it's great to see a phone manufacturer include some real additional features above what stock android provides. But thinking about it, the 2560x1440 display wins it for me, that's more pixels then my computer's monitor!
  10. It's got to be the front facing speakers for me. It's madness that other manufacturers don't do this, but I'm glad that HTC has the sense. (Get it?... Sense).
  11. A toy channel got my vote. As good as Slick's pilot video was, gaming videos are really over-saturated, so I personally couldn't get as engaged with his video as I was with Linus's. I also really like the casual, vloggy style of the toy pilot, it reminded me of the older videos, and felt a lot more personal, while still being informative. Don't get me wrong, both pilots were fantastic, regardless of how the vote ends, I'll still be happy.
  12. Would love to contribute to this, but my old HTC Sensation XE, well, it's beginning to show it's age. 1.5Ghz Dual Core, so it satisfies that requirement, but only 768MB of RAM, so it's "not compatible". Shame. At least it reminded me to reinstall Folding@Home on my desktop, I forgot about that so haven't contributed to the LTT team recently.
  13. Well, it's the exact same processor then in HP's spec sheet. I can't say for certain in this case, but it sounds like it was underclocked for better thermals and battery life. It's not rare that manufacturers will do that.
  14. I would recommend Unblock Us (http://www.unblock-us.com/) It's not a VPN per say, but instead a DNS switcher like Hola that tricks Netflix into thinking you're in different regions (it supports some other services too, like BBC iPlayer and Hulu). So long as your router lets you customise your DNS settings (and almost all of them do), it'll work. It's $5, so it works out about the same price as a VPN.
  15. As Mike the Boss said, it's likely a web filter. It'd certainly be handy, but it won't actively be scanning your computer. My recommendation is downloading Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free if you have legit Windows, it's lightweight and it doesn't nag you to buy anything premium like other free anti-virus. If you have Windows 8, it's already included (as part of it's version of Microsoft Defender).
