Linus Tech Tips

Linus is one of the internet’s most reliable and long-standing sources of tech reviews, news and entertainment.  His reviews are thorough, direct and entertaining. With the more recent addition of ‘Scrapyard Wars’, you can almost argue he’s changing how the world interacts with tech. This channel is a must for all tech heads.

Unbox Therapy

The undisputed king of unbox videos is Lewis from Unbox Therapy. He reviews some of the coolest and weirdest tech you’ve ever seen. The channel runs a number of series but by far the funniest is one called “Does it suck?” It’s all about finding stuff that is either bizarre or looks too good to be true. The only potentially funnier (depending on your taste) unboxing videos online are run by a channel called idubbbz in a series called “bad unboxing” which is all about unboxing some weird, weird stuff sent in by fans. Either way enjoy this channel.

Marques Brownlee – MKBHD

Started from his college dorm room this channel has exploded in popularity and for good reason, the quality is high and the entertainment is great too. Marques reviews a range of tech products but specializes in phones so it’s the place to head when you want a new one or just enjoy keeping up with the latest and greatest. He does comparison vids, tests of capabilities and a heap more. Marques is largely what lists like these are about, a passion for what he does and a knack for delivering it in a entertaining way, oh and once again the video production quality puts just about everything out there to shame. This is a must subscribe for the tech heads.

Jayztwocents

Jayztwocents is a tech channel all about full on PC gear. You’re guaranteed to be covered on whatever info you want, from individual components to completed builds. There are how-to’s on PC essentials like water cooling. I’d recommend this guy if you’re looking to put together a custom PC or if you’re just interested in PC gear as a hobby.

Jonathan Morrison

Jonathan is a great guy who runs a number of awesome (and extra crispy) series, as well as doing some pretty sweet latest/greatest tech reviews too. The series are many and all are awesome, some are: “Best tech for under X no of $” series which is about rounding up cool tech bits and pieces that you can buy on a budget, this is great for when you need to give gifts to that person you just don’t know what wants because the gear is always awesome and suits any budget, “The dream desk” series is all about the ultimate desk set ups, while they aren’t huge in number (probably because of the extreme costs) they are about putting together the ultimate desks with tech to match and some kind of amazing aesthetic theme, you have to watch these to appreciate them, there are a few more series to keep up with but i’ll leave you to discover them on your own. Enjoy!

HardwareCanucks

Dmitry is your host and a great one at that, very friendly and easy to listen too an his videography  is up there with the absolute best on YouTube. This channel focuses largely on PC and PC surrounded tech, looking in depth at the components the functionality and much more. Great channel and an under subscribed one for how good it is.

Primitive Technology

No words and no modern tools, just a man with the knowledge to create the basics of life from scratch. This channel really is something else to watch, its almost meditative.

Austin Evans

“Hey guys, This is Austin” is the intro you’ll hear at the beginning of most videos on this channel. Austin’s videos about tech are usually pretty gaming related and range from ‘how to’ vids to reviews of new and interesting gaming tech. The production quality is insanely high and beautiful to watch in its own right. The content is just as good and you’ll probably come away learning something new from every video. Great entertainment value and good tech content too.

ThioJoe

ThioJoe makes entertaining and interesting videos about tech, You’ll find the latest rumors/news on up coming tech, pretty decent top “x” lists and solid reviews of the latest gear. His focus is on being actually useful and focusing on what’s actually important in today society, so you wont find loads of gimmicky garbage being peddled here.

Tested

If you’ve ever seen an episode of Mythbusters you’ll recognize the great Adam Savage, this show isn’t all about one thing in particular but features a Tech, DIY on props and outfits and awesome random things here and there. It’s really a bunch of great people playing with and showing off cool stuff with great production quality. One of there best series is called “One day builds” where they build a range of awesome things such as movie prop replicas. 

Snazzy Labs

Quinn dubs himself as one of the most honest reviewers on YouTube, and I’d have to agree with that. He goes through gear like very few others and does a great job of explaining his criticisms og the gear he reviews. He also produces some help videos with a bit of a “how-to” vibe, which are always relevant. One of his best recent videos is about his experience with “the Void”, a new interactive virtual reality centre where people can actually move through the environment over a big distance. Well worth checking out if you’re into this sort of thing.

Matt Granger

A break down of the technology in the film industry. Matt is an immensely knowledgeable guy when it comes to film and it shines through in his videos, enjoy.

Salazar Studio

Reviews and just general cocking about with PC components. He will occasionally review other tech gear but overall this channel is a great one for good watching and good information.

Console gear, PC gear, Gaming reviews and a mix of hosts. The gaming content takes you through the game, the hardware and all kinds of other cool stuff surrounding it. The Gear reviews are super detailed and full of information you need.

Electro BOOM

Professional mediocrity has never been more mediocre, it will however leave you in stitches with a little more knowledge about how to or not to do things. Love this channel

Z Reviews

I doubt there ever was a more charismatic man reviewing Audio Gear. Z reviews is an in depth look at audio gear; headphones, amps, dac’s, speakers, subs you name it he reviews it. He’s a hilarious guy and well and truly under subscribed to, his knowledge is immense but most importantly you will probably watch his videos because of his passion for it.

Barnacules Nerdgasm

His descriptions pretty apt for this one so we wont butcher it. “Welcome to Barnacules Nerdgasm the supreme 3D printing, Coding, Software, Hardware, Nerd Culture, Geek Culture, Virtual Reality (VR), Simulations, Robotics and much much more YouTube channel. If you like to receive your entertainment, education & reviews with a heavy dose of comedy and innuendo then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been producing YouTube video full time for over 6 years but started doing it full time as my day job about 2 years ago when Microsoft laid me off after a decorated 15 year career as a Senior Software Developer on the Microsoft Windows platform. I had a hand in shipping every major client and server operating system including Windows XP, 2000, 2003, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 during my career and I know a lot of low level stuff about the Microsoft operating systems and the internal mechanics and operations of the Microsoft corporation.” Enjoy

 

AvE

Keep your dick in a vice! A linguistic masterpiece of a human and one with some integrity at that. I mean just take a look at his description for a taste “This channel has awesome Patrons. We have no need, nor any inclination to do corpo shill vids. If you are thinking you’d like me to review your fantastic new banana peeler, I invite you to please fuck off.” So what does he do you ask? Well he ah teaches you how to discern crap from not crap and learns you a thing or two along that way about tools. Seriously though he shows you how tools work, some crap, some good and all with a dose of comedic joy.

The pace is fast but the content is always amazing. Well worth your time.

The Verge

The Channel is known for posting about controversial political topics from time to time, it has been said that they will censor comments that disagree with the opinions stated in the video. Owned by Vox Media. The Verge is on…. the verge… of technology, culture, science and art. But mostly technology, when new tech is out you can bet that they’ll have a review up almost immediately giving you the overview and lowdown. They don’t really specialize in a specific area of tech, but rather cover anything with an electronic pulse. The reviews are professional and the reviewers vary so you don’t exactly get that intimate relationship you might with other channels.
