# why?

Go to solution Solved by SansVarnic,

In North America [The United States specifically] uses a combination of Imperial and Metric measurements . You may dislike the imperial system (and that is ok, I dont like the metric) but it is what it is and disliking a video because of this is not acting in a mature way. I, like many others, have learned to do conversions in our head. Its very simple. Centimeter to Inch is 2.54cm to 1inch.

@christian franca this chart may help you to some degree. I hope you continue to enjoy LTT material.

I'm sorry but until you change your measurement units my friends and I will dislike all your videos.

Well...  they have the demographics data you know, and they realize they have a majority US audience and are hence making sure they understand the metrics.

I'm not sorry, but you and your buddies are being petty and childish.

2 dislikes compared to millions of video views. Thats a lot of damage.

/s

Grow up and learn the rough conversions. I don't like the imperial units either, but I accept that a lot of the viewer base is in the US so I also as a minority in the viewer base will handle my dislike for the imperial system and just do the quick math by myself.

That the US is to stubborn to transition is another thing but...

idm imperial or metric

but i've seen some youtubers say a number without tacking what unit they're using, and that can be annoying. ("put the oven at 250 degrees" 250 degrees what? the angle of the knob or?)

if they do say what unit, it's literally 3 seconds to google if you're actually that interested in it.

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Please be more specific. Canada uses metric system, but since US is major viewership, they often use weight units the way US people can understand them. In PCs most measurements are done in metric/Celsius anyway. Apart from screen sizes which are in diagonal inches.

If you want to give criticism to LMG, just saying you don't like measurement units they use without giving examples isn't helpful. Also, if you don't push your criticism, and bend when someone else pushes back with their opinion, you most definitely won't get anything changed. @19_blackie_73 isn't part of LMG and is providing their own, rather harsh, opinion. Are you gonna just take that and back away?

The part I'm talking about is after the /s mark. Which for me implicates thats the more serious part of your post, and for me its still bit on harsher side. Not something we would see as attack or worth removing. Just harsh.

Coming from Britain, we still use the old Imperial system, but have complicated things (at least for some people) by using Metric measurements too, in a hodge podge.

So, we'll use miles per hour and our old stones for weight, and inches and feet, but we also find they are interchangeable with kilograms etc...in conversation - often in the same sentence.
