What was your first Linus Tech Tips video?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

10 YEARS OF LINUS TECH TIPS!!

Congrats again to the team on the milestone :)

 

What was the first LTT video you ever watched? Or did you board the Linus-Train with NCIX Tech Tips? And why did you watch it? 

 

My first LTT video was not that long ago, it’s the review of the Corsair Graphite 230t

I was shopping for a new rig at the tim, I searched for reviews of this case and the video was the first result on YouTube. I ended up buying the case, and while  90% or the components changed, my current rig is still in it.

I was on my way home from college and it was a long trip. For fun I liked to make builds on pcpartpicker and for some reason I had a liking to NZXT cases. I went on Youtube on my phone for the NZXT Phantom 820 review, and LTT popped up. I viewed it in 2013.

Was bored at uni one day and was planning a PC build at the time so I just searched "computer builds" on Youtube.
This popped up:
 

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

I was shopping for an ultrawide monitor, and Linus' video on the LG popped up on youtube. That in itself didn't get me into LTT channel though. Another time I was looking for something else, and though, was it the same person who did those monitors? Checked back and yup. How could I forget Linus... :D

I'd only just started getting into PC gaming and had bought a pre built off amazon, but i wasn't happy with the stock cooler and I'd heard a friend mention water cooling. 10 minutes of youtube searches later led me to:

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

This is my first YouTube Video I've ever watched after I've created my Google account and it was suggested to me by my brother and also LTT is the first channel I subscribed to (back then they had about 50-80'000 subs). So same week in 2013 as this video got released I have upgraded from my first PC which was a HP Compaq with a Pentium 4 with Windows XP to my first Laptop with Windows 8, it was a significant upgrade, then in the evening of the day I got my Laptop, my brother showed me this exact video on his iPad and the next morning I set up my Google account and immediately subscribed to LTT, Techquickie and CFS. Through LTT I not only got into Tech but also improved my english skills significantly.

 

Thanks guys for being awesome since 2013 ;)

Fun Fact: I also watched pretty much every video since then.

Oh man I don’t know what’s the best thing about this video. The fact Luke is still called Slick, the closet joke (the dawn of the fanfics?!), or that « Game Over » shirt ?

imo the fact that Luke was called Slick was the best thing ?
