Found linus tech tips long time ago when he was still with NCIX, continued watching mainly because linus was probably the best youtube perseonality. Funny yet not obnoxious, professional but still relaxed. Which i feel alot of youtubers could learn alot from

 

As for tech suggestions, id really like linus and co to just do more shows, perhaps split the WAN show into 2 parts such as how Tek Syndicate has done with the tek

Congrats to the crew on this momentous thingy!

So, where do I start? Okay, so ever since my wee little years, I've had a notoriety with tinkering and obsessing over the little details over technological gadgets. I would pore over every nook and cranny of some device that I had happened upon (say, perhaps, a soda machine). How it did what it did fascinated me (where did those soda cans come from, gahhh!!!). I guess you could say I have a penchant for messing around with things or voiding warranties, xD.

Anyhoo, fast forward to a year or so ago. Calamity struck when a laptop I had had for two-three years (a veeeeeery generous birthday gift from my ma and pa) had been poorly placed by yours truly on the table. I only noticed it when it was too late, when the heart-rending sound of the laptop hitting the ground met my ears. It was a goner.

For a good while, time was spent researching and researching on a good laptop around my budget. I believe at some point along that line, I came upon LinusTechTips. After watching a few of his videos, I was hooked, ensnared by the pieces of glimmering eye-candy that were the computers, processors, cases and whatever that Linus was reviewing (also, can't forget the strange sense of humor inherent amongst them all). Of course I couldn't afford any of what he was showcasing at the time (how could a fourteen-year old have enough money unless he's Richie Rich?), but a kid can dream, right? After a small amount of video browsing, I moved on to do more research elsewhere

Now to the present. I'm sixteen years of age, soon to be seventeen, and with a job. The laptop I have currently isn't quite cutting it for me, so I go searching for answers on the worldwide interwebs. After scouring the forums of many computer websites, I pay a visit to PC Part Picker with my newfound knowledge and concoct a wonderful little list of parts. One thing still bothered me about it, though, and that was finding a good case for my budget. Cue the magic of the Google search engine. In the video results is a review for a case I happen to be looking at as a potential candidate for my build. Lo and behold, it's by LinusTechTips, a name neither heard nor read for a long, long time. I've only just recently re-discovered the channel, but have still been watching long enough to have spent unhealthy amounts of time watching reviews on cases ("three hours and still going on strong!!!" the boy said, his bloodshot eyes glistening).

So now, half of my research on computer builds and higher-end computer builds has been done on this channel. All those videos help in so many ways and I'm very pleased to have a steady source of computer info to tap into, especially since it's all directed towards tinkering, warranty-voiding computer geeks such myself. Keep up the stellar work, guys!

Now excuse me while I finish salvaging this old celeron core I have from a fried motherboard. It's been there for months...


Eccentricity is the new sane!!!

I knew nothing about computers, clock speeds, cores, ram, ssd, hdd, sata, you name it. Linus and the guys have educated me on everything, and I owe them a lot for that.

Linus, Thank you for giving me all the information about computers. I found you by looking up the asus g46vw on youtube like a year ago. Then when i clicked on your channel i started watching your videos, and soon became a subscriber. Your my favorite guy to watch on youtube, and you should be proud to have hit the 1 million mark. I cant wait to see your reviews on the GTX 980. Thank you linustechtips crew for all that you post and make. I hope you guys keep growing and never stop making videos and The Wan Show!

I found Linus in midish 2013 (around August I think) when I was looking into building my first custom PC. I found lots of good information and like the channel so I stuck around. I would have to say that my favorite series is the As Fast As Possible (Techquickie) series and the Handy Tech Under $100 series. The have a more everyday practical use (I'm ain't ballin enough to be buying graphics cards and motherboards everyday (I wish though)). I would like to see some more of the Handy Tech videos and maybe an increases in the As Fast As Possible releases (maybe 3 per week). Also maybe some more peripheral reviews (monitors, keyboards, headphones, random input devices ect.). And for my favorite food I will have to go with none other than mac 'n cheese. I love mac 'n cheese especially with bacon, mac 'n cheese and bacon is probably one of the best food ever made. And congrats on hitting one million (you will probably have a million more by the time you receive your plaque).

I never had a doubt that you'd be able to get to 1 million. I found your channel years ago looking for a review of a long forgotten motherboard. Been suggesting you to all my pals since. Doesn't matter what you have a video one, I watch them all ;D.

Just want to say thanks for all the hard you and your crew have been doing over the years. The content has always been great from you guys. I've been watching you guys since mid 2010. It was just as I was starting to get into PCs. Just happen to stumble upon one of the best YouTube channels I have ever subscribed to.

 

I've been seeing these ErgoDox keyboards floating around on the internet and maybe you guys could get your hands on one and make a video review of them.
