Linus is alright. Splooges himself over hardware a little too much though. Never saw a reviewer happier over some motherboard features...

His WAN show is nice and up to date with news and its nice to wade through. I find tek syndicate to be a little too tinfoil hat in its news delivery but I still enjoy that as well.

I have no idea who most of these LPers/Tech reviewers are as I rarely watch that kind of thing on Youtube, and besides, those kinds of videos/channels are a dime a dozen on Youtube. Every Tom, Dick and Harry with an HD camcorder and a cheap greenscreen thinks they're the next Screen Savers/TechTV.

The ones I watch are ncix, newegg, linus tech tips, teksyndcate and techoftommrow

Are all good ones. But if you want to get news from reading sites like tomshardware or anandatech, whatever.

Tek Syndicate is definately much better. Linus is alright when the video is a couple minutes long. Linus gets really annoying when the video is 10 minutes plus.

No issues with Linus but I like TechofTomorrow far more.

Elric is awesome and makes the reviews engaging.
