It's OC3D

A Review which I pretty much feels needs doing and I'll more than likely get shot for... but hell I'm going to do it anyway, strap yourself in for the (drum roll please) "The OC3D Review".

Why review the website and forums? Well I don't think it gets the attention or credit it deserves, yes there are many other tech and review sites which host their own forums but they are far from the level OC3D delivers, as a little bit of a disclaimer I will be being impartial and honest so we'll start right at the foundation of this review with the man himself, our commander and chief, the boss, numero uno, the Guvnor, Mr Tiny Tom Logan.

Tiny Tom Logan (TTL/The Guvnor)
As you can see from the image above you can see the man himself Tiny Tom Logan (techus humpius masculinus maximus) in his natural environment, this is a very rare sight indeed but I feel it's the best shot and shows our specimen as the shy retiring quiet type. Now snap back to reality joking aside what we have is probably the most down to earth, humorous, kind, generous, caring and most of all honest human being on the planet, when not in front of the camera doing his thing of bringing us the very latest tech reviews and news on OC3D.tv he can be found loitering the busy halls of Facebook and surprisingly also has the time to be on the very forums we have all come to love and engages with the community.

The Website.

The main website is where it's at for all the content and goings on and the first thing I notice is how clean and organised it is and as a plus NO in your face Google Ads raping your bandwidth or those annoying "Rate us" pop ups, this alone keeps me on the page which can only be a plus.
Navigation is a breeze with this site all the relevant areas are clear to see Home/Content/Downloads/Tech Search/OC3D.tv and lets not forget, the Community. Simply clicking a review takes us smoothly to the content requested and what detail there is to behold! There is everything you could ever need to know about your chosen hardware including graphs, specs, photos, prices, in depth descriptions and a full unbiased honest conclusions. This alone gets my gold award.
It's probably worth pointing out at this stage that it is not just TTL that do the reviews for OC3D, there are a small team of news gurus and tech reviewers working tirelessly to serve you the content you desire. Visit the main site here and experience it for yourself.

Now we find ourselves at what is probably the most popular piece which is the OC3D Youtube channel, here you will find TTL doing his thing by showing us the Tech we came here to look at, you'll find many videos within the channel including:
Rushkits - sub 5 minute quicky videos for brief looks at hardware or hardware that simply won't fill a full review video i.e Headsets, Mice, unboxing, ect.
The Review - These are the full fat reviews which can be anything up to an hour including unboxing, descriptions, close ups, benchmarks and those all important product awards.
Subscriber Videos - Now these are a real treat, now and again TTL will do a subscriber video addressing the goings on and whats still to come in the land of OC3D, these are a wonderful relaxed chilled out chat and I find a welcome difference to other channels.

The Forums.
Now we arrive at the coup de grâce which is of cause the Forums (community), now here you will find "US" the whole OC3D family and what I believe is simply the greatest place on the internet for tech heads or even if you're not a tech head and just want to have a chill and chat we can do that too, here we share our combined massive knowledge and indulge in the delights of hardware, software, phones, cars, jokes, weather even consoles there is no divide here or fan boys it's a safe tech neutral gathering. As well as the fantastic community you will also find member reviews and news, rig galleries, project logs, how to guides and not forgetting manufacturer reps that frequent the forums daily via the customer care sub forums.

My conclusion.
Now, I have been a follower of TTL for a fair few years now as a subscriber of the OC3D.tv channel and always admired his blunt honesty within all his videos and only joined the Forums back in 2013, since my time with OC3D I have made a lot of good friends and seen many members come and go. It is in my honest opinion the greatest forums and review site on the web and I'm not being biased with this, that is 100% pure honesty, the way it runs and holds together can be felt throughout, every member, every moderator, and TTL himself all combine to make it a little corner of the internet that you just want to be a part of.
If I had to rate OC3D as a whole on a rating system I'm afraid you'll be disappointed, it's simply impossible, my heart ruling my head would say 10/10, but logic and brains would say 9.9/10 as nothing in the world is perfect and could in some way be improved upon, with the exceptions of Facebook and Twitter which should be destroyed (IMHO).
It's rare that I have a lot to say about something but I could ramble on for days about every little thing that makes OC3D what it is, but rather than read and read more words from myself.. STOP! and start experiencing it for your self.

This is awesome wraith!!!


Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why

Well said Wraith. I've been a part of a few forums over the years and found that some can become bitchy. I've been a Member of OC3D for a few years now and even though I know disagreements can happen everywhere I have seen very little of this on OC3D.

Top Review.

Nicely done dude.

It is the only forum I come back to, to be honest. I totally agree with how you've described The Guv'nor too.

Haha nice read
Tbh the bit about the website was a little too optimistic as there is a fair bit of outdated stuff on here (I understand that a refresh is coming in the future), but anyway its still the best forum around
