    I really enjoyed this video. On a side note, seeing Linus type early on in this media made me want for a contest among the LMG staff about who can build fastest, who can type fastest and most accurately (the Mavis Beacon event), etc.

    P.S I'm getting a switch lite cause handheld is my preference and my gd right joycon just does not stay connected in handheld mode and I will keep my standard switch for the occasional time I want to play tv mode

  • Dustin Nguyen

    Switch lite I would only get for a couple reasons. 1. as a second switch for pokemon to do online raids with another friend with two switches and 2. for displaying the switch lite pokemon edition. Honestly if the switch lite didn't have pokemon edition skin I wouldn't bother. The best value in my opinion is the new nintendo switch with better battery life coming out soon. Lastly, like linus says you give up way too much for $100 (docking, some joy con related games, and repairing/replacing when the joysticks and d pad goes bad), plus if you do get separate joycons you will have to buy a dedicated joycon charging station.

    I don't think the influx of terrible comments was justified. It's some words on a screen and at the end of the day (literally!) It was changed.
    People get really nasty when their free content isn't up to par.
    The dislikes will hurt the channel but I think that's a TheXvid problem, and I don't think the ratio should make any difference in the algorithm, but rather a choice the user makes. Controversial content can be just as informative and shouldn't be hidden just because it upsets some very sensitive people.

    I mean, I appreciate the effort to be trustworthy but having showcase content this way, still muddies the water. Yes everyone is doing it, but I think it could be a big plus of this channel that you don't do it. You're one of the few channels that are big enough to be able to afford it.

    The fan base can be a bunch of idiots. It is not in LMGs best interests to annoy the fan base or mislead them. They would not do this intentionally. They are only human - cut them some slack. Keep up the good work guys and good on you for your honesty.

    I think the issue you are missing is that a showcase for headphones is objectively useless. I want to know what you think of them. I know what headphones are and what features they usually have.

    the lite can connect to other hand helds so...its pretty good option if you dont really need to have it play on TV or monitors. Also you went strangely deep about the who psyche behind choosing Lite v the Switch - a bit heavy dont you think? Its about fun and giving options to people. That is it.


    The thing about AMD is actually because it was never expected to work in the first place. With Intel, it's obvious it would work however they purposely locked it down and never opened arms about it. AMD on the other hand DID open arms and accepted the fact that it would work out well.

    How is it even remotely close to what Intel did? Intel dropped the chipset entirely. 3*** era chips work in literally every way other than PCIe 4.0 support on X370 and X470.

    I didn't dislike that video because it was misleading. I disliked it because if I want to watch ads, I will turn off adblocker and browse the web. The video attracted hate because it provided no direct value to the person watching it in any way shape or form. It was fair, just cheap, and obviously we (the general audience) don't care for that behavior. Defend it all you want, the video was a waste of everyone's time, except that the revenue LTT generated presumably goes to the videos people actually care about.

    Regarding your mysterious lag: check the firmware/drivers for your network components. I had a case where one computer mysteriously wouldn't connect to the server. It turned out the server's network card driver had bugged out but was somehow functioning normally for _every other PC._ It even reported that the non-working PC should have connectivity, was able to ping, had the correct settings, etc. Reinstalling the driver fixed the issue.

    LTT uses its popularity for additional revenue. BIG MYSTERY UNVEILED BY AN ACCIDENTAL DATA LEAK - READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE

    Like, what the actual fuck, people. I'm sure a lot of you are going to get offended by this, but a ton of you North American folk are way too entitled. Are you so used to being spoonfed information that you can't even think for yourself? You realize that nobody's forcing you to watch a video that you dislike, correct? It was an honest mistake, get the sand out of your vaginas. I mean, I don't wanna pull a Blizzard on you, but don't you have TVs? Don't you know how commercials and ads work? Stop being bad at life and instead use your brain to form an opinion of your own. At the end of the day, you're the one buying whatever the ad is selling. Shocking, I know.
    This whole aspect of "Thank you so much for correcting yourself, Linus, my life's back to normal again" is just mind-boggling to me.

    The problem I had with the video was that... it wasn't any interesting at all. For a video about how it's supposed to be more of a value noise-cancelling headphone, I don't even remember the price of the headphone being talked a bout that much. I also felt like some of the content of the video wasn't targeted well, since in a video about value ANC headphones, it kind of implies what ANC is, but then you take some time explaining how ANC works, but it feels like it's framed as this is something original that the Taotronic headphones did and I felt like that was mis-represented.

  • Alexander Nähring
    Alexander Nähring 2 months ago

    The "problem" I see (although for me it wasn't much of a problem in the first place) with the Taotronics video or the showcases in general:
    All LTT videos feature a sponsor message at the beginning and end, so "labeling" an ad with "sponsored by" is not *really* obvious imo. Also, the "showcase" is at the very end of the long title, so is actually not visible until the video is actually open.
    I love this channel and I understand that you guys have to make money out of it, but still you really blurs the lines to your honest and really likeable reviews when adding "showcase" material that is not reaaaaaally so obviously marked as an ad. E.g., I would drop the intro, which I mentally link to you original content from ads like this, but this is just my perception.

  • Yovarni Yearwood
    Yovarni Yearwood 2 months ago

    I think the bigger argument for the Switch Lite is for parents to justify buying multiple handhelds for their children. I was talking some parents in Target once and they thought they had to buy one Switch for each of their kids (they had three.) I explained that no, they can dock it and all play together. However, that's only a good solution WHILE it's docked. At $200, it's much more justifiable to buy one for each child; granted, I think it should have been $150-170 or the price of the Joy-Cons should come down. Not even PS4/X1 controllers are that much, lmao.
