This video made me sick... - Page 3

post #21 of 43
He's a gamer, not a notoriously picky and clean cable management (dare I say) nerd.

Just cuz he's into gaming doesn't mean he has to have the best stuff or the best neatest cable management. He just likes to play the games and happens to be good.

It's like a race car driver that doesn't know how to repair his own car. He's just a driver. Whether he understands how every part of his car works or how to assemble it all is something different.

I like computers. I like gaming, but my computer doesn't have the best cable management. I just don't really understand why you're raging about him.

Its funny because in my years working at Bestbuy (At registers, computer sales, and then geek squad) I've never been told to market a specific brand of product.

Type maybe but outside of Bestbuy's store brands they really don't pick favorites... We're trained from the start to recommend what best fits what people are looking for.

Also spent a few days in PE (Including the video game section.. his products are with the computers though) and once again I was never once told this.

Uh... what's wrong with it? Just some random gamer guy who happened to be both competent and lucky enough to make money out of pc peripherals. Not that I like (or hate) the guy, I'm totally indifferent to him and his products (well, at least current fatality products).

Didn't really think there was anything wrong with the video..?

Although he did say 'and so forth' too much...

And seeing his rig was kind of funny, for a pro gamer I'd have guessed he'd have a pretty good PC! But still rocking the IDE cables, fair enough!

On top of that, he has a lisp, so what? He said so on and so forth, not everyone's a great public speaker. Some people have things called flaws and judging by the harsh sentiments towards this guy, many people here have severe flaws they should be looking into rather than judging this guy.

If his products are too expensive, don't buy them? That's how the market works. He'll see that people aren't buying and lower the price. If he sees that people are willing to pay top dollar for his stuff, then he's doing the right thing. Why should Doritos lower their chips to 99 cents if they can make 3 dollars a bag that people are willing to pay?

Pretty much. Ok, maybe he shouldn't have good cable management but he should at least have a decent computer and not one still from the 90's.

Stay classy, guys! You're lying to yourselves if you say you wouldn't slap your name onto cheap products wannabes will eat up for boatloads of cash.
All too true ha ha

i highly doubt he sets the prices. All he gets is his name on them, and endorses the products and then a check.

As for the guy claiming that everyone would sell out. No, not everyone would sell out. Some people still have self respect.
