So do you find it acceptable to promote an app, which was designed from ground up to 'steal' (encourage you to spend it happily) money?

The explanation about pro level equipment towards the end was very good and spot on. As someone who used to work in events and touring the price of the equipment we used would make your eyes water. However it survived being set up and packed down in a rush, transported across the country and abused but it hardly ever failed. We used to get bean counters questioning us why we can't use consumer level gear and our reply was always that we gladly will if you intend to buy us a new unit every 3-4 weeks.

Does RAID 01 shadow legends protect your data in case of HDD failure? How much of the raw storage capacity is available for use? At least 01%? Also, do the COD: "TACTICAL CABLE INCOMING!"

I would have liked to see the end connectors get run over as well. I realize the plastic bit would break, but I'd like to see how the surrounding shroud holds up. If it were me, I would hopefully have some spare ethernet connectors with me and could crimp a new one on, but if that fancy shroud collapses or damages something internally, I'd be better off with standard cat5 at that point. It'd also be nice to see something like a wetness or dirt/mud test. Being durable to user error, weather, and dirt are big concerns. Another test might be seeing how well they hold up being put over a flame for a minute or so, or being left on top of a heated piece of metal like a steel drum or cast iron skillet for a long amount of time.

I watched your followup to the response to this sponsor spot on the WAN Show, and I honestly didn't think twice about the sponsor and just enjoyed consuming the content. I like rugged ethernet cables! Sponsor spots on your videos (and in general) are, to me, either neutral or positive value to me. In retrospect though, I honestly do feel a little uncomfortable with LMG technically "hawking" this game to some degree as I do feel it was designed with rather unscrupulous and unsavory design goals, but that is a separate discussion, which again, you brought up on the WAN Show - where does one draw the line between "capitalistic" and "predatory/parasitic"? It is possible that a reasonable definition could be arrived at, but that is certainly something that deserves discussion. I know I'd watch that show =p

Oh FFS Linus. Slap 1-2 dollars worth of Sugru on those $150 cables, to make far superior transition strain reliefs.
pr0xZen Vor 4 Tage
Cable quality is basically pure wankery, beyond being constructed to standardized spec. It doesn't mean _some_ "excessive" features and elements can't be genuinely useful in _some_ contexts, but the vast majority of it has little to no benefit. That most usually comes down to special cases of extreme noise, or when trying to push signal transfer _beyond_ the standard's spec rating. Personally, I wouldn't want my ethernet cable, especially one like this that's obviously intended for mobile and temporary connectivity, to have this level of mechanical strength. In case of an accident, I would rather have the cable or its locking mechanism fail, than the connected port in either end getting badly damaged or completely torn out.

After listening to the wan show I came to watch this video to see why people are annoyed and I now see why. You Linus clearly makes it look like you are playing the game which if you recall in WAN show and I know you do, you specifically said: "I do not play Raid Shadow Legends". The reason why i had to come back to watch this is because one I have Floatpleane and two I wasn't really interested in the video. I am gonna be honest this type of sponsor where you falsely depict your self playing the game as in a game you have tried and love because that is exactly how you show it then I won't support this channel or on Floatplane.

Man, I sure hate it when I accidentally unplug my ethernet cable and tie it between two trucks, then one of my friends happens to start towing the other truck which happens to be in neutral, therefore breaking my ethernet cable. I better get this super-strong cable so that doesn't happen again!

This stuff is not going to be loaded in and out of a truck 100 times because it's not going to see professional use. The Convertashell thing is kinda nice, but I'd much rather just put a Ethercon connector on one end because this cable doesn't do anything to protect the rj45 on your computer anyway.

Pro audio already has ruggedized cat6 on the market, and emergency infrastructure? There are also milspec connectors that are already in widespread use. I guess elitecore just wanted to sell something to rich gamers.

Interesting, but I'm not in the target audience who needs ultra tuff cables (mine just go cable managed behind my desk into the wall). Lol gave no attention to the RSL promo because I'm fairly used to seeing/skipping them on firearm related channels (because there aren't as many sponsors that straight up don't care who they sponsor to promote them). Grow up and just skip it
