The new action camera, i play paintball and was thinking about getting one if they are that cheap. The question is, how is the footage and is it durable enough to take a hit from a paintball without exploding. Also depends on how expensive the mounting hardware is... but in the US we dont have an option to buy that stuff yet.

 

and maybe this thing, looks fun. SuperFun video maybe?

I don't like saying "no" because it sounds so negative, but I think there is better more interesting stuff out there for you to be reviewing.

 

let's all be honest here this is what we want to see you review:

Yep ive seen them before, i know its not super techy but im sure they can come up with some things to do with it. And im sure its got to be cheap anyway. If they ask Xiaomi to toss one in with their order they can make a video out of it at least.

Sure, why not? It would be nice to see someone "new" since we almost always get the usual LG, HTC, Samsung and Motorola.


...is there a question here? 🤔

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.

The cheapest and the most expensive. Too compare their quality in the low end and high end range.

maybe introduce us to them...

you could do a kind of intro/wrap-up video of what kind of products they have, and their most popular ones.

i want to get to know the brand, but not one particular device. (is it a cheap brand, do they care about quality,...) 

 

edit: i know it would be hard to get access to all the devices, but i would like it anyways :P

i know i use many of these: ( ) and these: ... (i really do... (sry...) ) edit: and edits

Speaking of chinese stuff... How about starting a series where you review cheap chinese products and see how they perfrom for the price? (Such as products from Aliexpress)

I second this completely. It would be most certainly interesting.

 

But on the topic of the reviews, I would like to see a review at least on the new action cam http://www.xiaomishop.com/234-original-xiaomi-yi-sports-camera-.html

 

Possibly you could review some of their phones or tablets as well.
