Hey y'all,

 

I was in the market for a screen protector for my S9+, and while normally I get one from Spigen for every phone I had in the family for the past couple years, Spigen doesn't seem to have one for the S9+. Instead, they got something called "Screen Protector GLAS.tR Nano Liquid", which is a wet wipe that you rub on your screen and the solution fuses with your screen or something. It claims to have a higher hardness than your average phone's oleophobic coating and might potentially cover up tiny scratches in the oleophobic coating.

 

I tried searching for reviews online, and anything currently on Youtube about it is garbage. A few people asked about it on Reddit and various forums but many responders to those threads simply called it snake oil with no explanation. I discovered a few other similar products like "Nanofixit Phone - Nano Liquid Screen Protector", and a few others that I simply cannot remember at the moment. There are also a few products that claim to remove scratches or restore the oleophobic coating like "Crystal Armor Fusso Cell Phone Fingerprint Oleophobic Coating", and "Nanofixit Scratch Remover".

 

Of all these products, there seems to be very little third party info about them. It'll be pretty cool if we can get a video or two about whether or not these products are more scratch resistant, can fix scratches and micro scratches, and endurance of the coatings. LTT does have one video about a wet applied liquid screen protector, but that was from 2012 and it was tested on a Blackberry.

Hey @Slick,

My searching led me here as the best place to post a video suggestion, my apologies if this is not the best place.

It would be great to see how load times (and temps/fps?) of games/tests would be affected if loading games from a RAM disk (eg. ASUS RAMdisk, or Dataram, or whatever is best).

With a comparison to M.2 drive (a good one like Samsung 960 evo or newer), and of course compared to spinning HDD.

 

Obviously this would require a delay on startup, however in theory the above M.2 drive would load 60GB into a RAM disk in about 20 seconds. (EDIT: would be great to see RAMDisk load times across tests/games for SSD/HDD)

 

I think this would be a reasonable delay at startup, and would be ($'s aside) worthwhile if it saves more seconds in loading levels than the time to write the RAMdisk at startup (or worthwhile for anyone wiling to wait the applicable seconds before playing)

I'm sure there are plenty of people who could add 32-64 GB RAM (or already have this somewhat unused), that would be happy to load whatever their current mainly played game happens to be.

TBH I'm surprised game developers (or engine developers) aren't making use of available RAM in this way, although based on testing seen on LTT video's I suspect Tomb Raider does something close to this already (not that I'd know).

Anyway, here's my suggestion, I hope it is useful.

EDIT (again):
I've just found this video review of Dimmdrive from 20/1/15.
I doubt too much has changed in the last 3 years, and since Dimmdrive provided no improvement on (SATA) SSD, unless Dimmdrive as an app is/was flawed, there doesn't seem any point in creating the video I suggested in this post.

To prevent future random threads popping up asking Linus to review a certain product, wouldn't it be better/more convenient to pin this thread at the top of the General section of the LTT forum?

@Christophe Corazza Linus mentioned a few times that he doesn't keep an eye on this thread anymore ... We just merge those threads for convenience :D

Well, i think if LTT guys could make a "Top 5/10" lists on laptops in several categories like: budget, all round/multimedia, content creation, gaming, and all sort of stuff. That would be great image.jpeg.ed26dbb6bf8463a3dece9e992d7b9519.jpeg

TRIUMF Particle Accelerator! (in your backyard.. well, almost)

 

Hey guys, I watch most of your videos and I love how you cover not only tech but also super awesome facilities that most of the people can't get access to and otherwise would never see.  What I am surprised is that you guys never went to TRIUMF (UBC) which is located 45min from your office.

 

http://www.triumf.ca/home/about-triumf

 

Being a Canadian channel this would be very cool if you showcase truly Canadian technology. They do all sorts of physics experiments there, and the facility is absolutely awesome to visit. Surprisingly they do public tours so to get there with a film crew will be no problem. 

I visit that facility for work about twice a year. We test our electronics for operation in radiation environment to see how it will survive in space when it is launched to International Space Station and on occasion beyond. Even though I have been there many times the sight of it always amazes me. 

 

I really recommend visiting it and I am certain you will not be disappointed. 

Cheers,

Val

Delidding the Raspberry Pi Model 3 B+. It has a heat spreader and I'd like to see if they used a crap thermal paste or a good one, noting the performance change after the process.
