That's a butt ton of people *Not mentioning a few other part time workers* each with their own dedicated workstations and a maHOOsive all round workplace.
All funded and paid for by begging, a private 'kickstarter-esque' campaign with no kickstarter tax (or guarantees), and donations from their forum and YouTube fan-base. It's an interesting business model.

Aye, their business is based so heavily on handouts, and even then they move their content onto a paid platform ontop of that just to get more.

Hell, has Linus done any Skylake stuff yet?

Technically there is only me and mark in the office

VB works from home

G-Dubs aka Gary is actually a full time radiographer (xrays - ct scans etc) and only reviews on his days off

Thats us in a nutshell.


Lately there has been a lot more testing to do and Ive not been working as mainy nights as I would have. Me chilling right out on the forums has come down to working hard on a normal sleeping pattern. If I dont sleep I end up like Dice when hes hangry

There are many reasons why computer part review sites have gone quiet. It's not just OC3D, all of the other sites I visit are quiet right now.

Don't forget we've been through (and are still in depending on what expert you believe) a recession. It's amazing that most of these companies have managed to survive tbh. That means that less products are coming out (still no TI Lightning) and thus there are less products to review.

Then there's the fact that Tom has been busy and let's face it, Linus talks s**t most of the time so it's not fair to compare the two.

I mean really, who needs to see a PC running in a bloody mini fridge to know that the crap don't work?

I also agree about the Linus making money part. He had people sending him cash a couple of months back to make a new office etc. He's always sticking his hand out.

Just chill and don't be so bloody rude and disrespectful to Tom.

I've never really watched Linus' videos. They are all the same. Just him banging on about a load of old crap that doesn't interest me in the slightest.

His site, honestly, is like a baby sitting crèche.

Yeah I have to say I agree. If I'm about to lay out my hard earned beans on something I want the review to be thorough, and that's one thing Tom has always done properly. Even his rush reviews put most other sites in the shade.

All in all, I prefer quality over quantity. So Toms videos, whether on OC3D TV or Rushkit TV, are perfect for me.

To many video makers out there just open the box, flail the product around in front of the camera, then read the specs out. A trained chimp could do that. And then, if that trained chimp is Linus, it will be followed by a five minute begging infomercial about shaving. I swear that man would make a video about his daily dump if he could.

So yeah - TTL - don't gooooo changin', to try to please meee....
