I would love to see a video covering the different types of display connections (DVI, Dual Link DVI, HTMI, DP, etc), what they are capable of, their purpose normally and what their limitations. Basically would be advice for people who are looking to maybe buy a TV screen as their PC screen as it will also be their home theatre or maybe some other purchase that someone is looking at that might not be simple and straight forward

 

 

I would also love to see a vid covering advice for how to buy a PC monitor, what to look for and what pit falls to avoid.

Maybe even one vid for buying a straight gaming PC monitor, another one for 3d gaming, another one for 3 screen gaming, maybe one for design/photography work, one for TV/day to day PC use (or maybe not one vid each but broken in to sections that make sense)

This vid is great but it is not an as fast as possible, its a bit long and its techie, there are a tonne of people who I know SHOULD but would not as its too long and too techie. The Tech Quicky channel has a great look, neutral and not too nerdy and yet a bit fun, very encouraging for randomers who just want clean, quick info.

I think an As Quick as Possible would be very appropriate here

I agree with doing a AV connector Quickie.

But do include a quickie tip, where IF you have a GPU installed, remember to plug it into that  lowest port!

 

My grandpa had this problem today when he called me, it would've been way easier for him to view a video like this about it. :)

Don't know if this is suggested yet, but: Headphone amps!

 

As far as I can gather, you would want amps to drive headphones with high impedance. But you might also need one for headphones with low impedance, as they require more current.

Networking; a clear explanation/comparison of straight ethernet, wireless g/n/ac (the ones still in use I think?), and powerline is something I don't think we've seen yet.

 

Definitely going to recommend this one as well. People I think get the general idea that a pricey router is usually better overall than an inexpensive bargain one, but I think there's lots of confusion out there for ordinary folk over whether dual-band actually will help their network (especially if it's comprised of older devices) or whether N300, N600, N750, N900, AC1500, etc. would handle the load for their 3 game consoles, 4 Tablets AND 4 Phones, as well as obviously 4 Laptops and 1 central Desktop PC. A quick summary of what type of router is generally good in each situation would be awesome for a Tech Quickie.
