I think a great video would be on anything, but the entire video would be the quality of like the Chevy Volt intro, Model Y intro, MBX MKII intro, Windows Vista intro or the RED Camera review intro. It would be entirely serious, not even a standard logo intro. Definitely will take time, but I feel like the outcome would be amazing. In short, something like a movie. I feel like LMG has the capacity for a movie.

You should

1. review others PCPartPicker lists or

2. review the Source engine/Source 2 and see how it stands up to modern game engines like Unreal or Unity. Maybe even have ReShade as well?

I have a couple videos I would love to see:

1) A day in the life of Linus or Anthony - a typical day at LMG for an employee.

2) Behind the scenes - how the magic is done form concept, to writing, to making the film, editing and production. It sure looks seemless but I'm sure thier are very complex workflows involved.

Hello,

I had a couple Video Ideas.

1) Some sort of Prebuilt computer tournament, as in you get a prebuilt computer from all the major brands (origin, Ibuypower, nzxt, and so on) with all the same configurations and see how they compare based on performance, build quality, and style.

2) A聽video about cable (Comcast)聽internet, seeing if cable splitters degrade performance and possibly how many splitters it will take to degrade performance almost like the PCI-E riser video you had a little while back.

It has been done twice. Look up Secret Shopper and Secret Shopper 2.

It's measureable (the splitters have markings saying how much dBmV they can remove), but I do like that idea.

True, but it could be an idea to do a follow up on this and the recent attempt at building spin off. Could look at the prebuilt from the context of current parts shortages and do they currently offer better value if you can't wait, and what would you need to upgrade asap in comparison to what you'd want if building your own (i.e faster ram, SSD or a PSU that won't explode)

Hey Everyone, I just finished watching the WAN Show live and thought of an idea where Scrapyard Wars can be continue being produced. Once this whole covid gets to the point where regular guests can be on the show, What if they regularly brought on subscribers to compete for prizes.

some interesting themes could be

  • Special Guests
    • Youtubers like JayzTwoCents, Hardware Canucks, Bitwit...
    • LMG Group Employees with different skills, business, computers, workshop, personality
  • Expand to setups, which can include speakers, tvs, stereo systems

#2 is at S8 as well.

Linus Tech Tips

Hey was thinking how about a website review. www.versus.com do a comparison of different tech and always wanted to know how accurate what they said about the tech was. Was wondering if Linus Tech Tips could review some of their reviews and let us know how reliable the information actually is.聽

So I was thinking.... I'd like to see Linus's reaction if someone played a certain prank on him. 馃檪
(Was debating whether to post a status update, since I think it'd be a pretty short video like maybe 1 or 2 minutes, or here, cause I would be interested in seeing a video of it....)


One of the LMG staff is at Linus's PC, and doing some file copies of some really important stuff, while Linus is watching.聽 (I'm thinking at least a few hundred GB or more)
(BTW the copy is to / from a 3.5" hard drive, not an SSD.)
While in the middle of the copy, they knock the hard drive face-down onto the concrete floor.
(At this point I imagine Linus's eyes going wide and him starting to panic, etc.....)
Drive slams into floor, cables still attached, camera cuts to the computer screen --- and the data is still copying as if nothing had happened.
(Now, I imagine Linus getting shocked) .... "Wait?聽 It's still copying?聽 After you dropped a聽HARD DRIVE?!?"
Then, while it's STILL copying, the other LMG staff (who had started the copy, and/or who had dropped the HDD, if multiple people are involved), cracks open the hard drive....

and it turns out that someone had taken the guts OUT of the hard drive, and put an SSD in there, modded the controller to make it perform like a hard drive (and give it the same model & serial # of the hard drive if that's possible), and put weights in the HDD case to make it feel as heavy as a hard drive.

I posted on the Corridor Crew video where they used the old Mac with Photoshop 1 on it, but I'll reiterate here:

Next collab with CC: They have to make a hacking scene that is both realistic and not completely boring. Linus judges it for both accuracy, and for enjoyment and engagement. Commenters have said Anthony should be CC's advisor, and I like this idea. We've all seen the cheesy hacking scenes, and some more plausible, but not many have been both seriously accurate and exciting to watch.

I really enjoyed the Ultimate Tech Support Challenge and wanted to make a suggestion how about putting a select few viewers through a similar scenario to see just how much they learn from the content you release !!!

Let me Know your thoughts :)

Do more guides, kind of like what Anthony did with the RGB guide, but instead of building a pc from scratch, focus more on upgrades.

Upgrading your NVMe boot drive, here鈥檚 how.

How to upgrade your ram (I have basic ram, but want rgb - where do I start, what do I look for?)

Guides for must have software.

Etc

Linus mentioned it in a recent WAN show - a lot of people know this stuff and sometimes assume everyone knows this stuff... but some people are just getting started and can be turned off by the arrogant attitude some people have.
I bought a pre-built rig because it was the only way to get all of the parts under a certain price point, but that means I鈥檓 now looking ahead to try and upgrade or beautify my rig beyond what the manufacturer has done and there isn鈥檛 a ton of info that is easily digestible.

I enjoyed watching this video, however, it could have been nice that the results were shown as text while you were talking.

Decay test
I would like you to set up both computers to run benchmark tests every day. The point would be to see how 10 to 12 hours of gaming a day will affect the performance of computers over 1, 2 and 3 years.
