    I'm not mad, just a little bit sad, and disappointed that our friends didn't let me know that you wanted something ultra-high performance for you editing and storage needs! We're going to build one and see how it stacks up against a Jellyfish!. Find out how we did this with Patrick Kennedy from servethehome.com/

    So many people in the comments attacking MKBHD and iJustine. Like what are you even doing with yourself?

      @chaon93 how? They already had gotten servers from them. Also, they literally run off of the NAS that they made, which lasted them for a while. Also, they aren't going to be doing much more intensive work on their nas compared to Linus.

      @Koustuv Kanungo I am not saying she has less knowledge, I am saying she has different knowledge, but not everyone knows that. People treat Unbox therapy, iJustine, MKBHD, and other unboxer channels, which they are unboxer channels, not lifestyle channels, like JayzTwoCents, Gamers Nexus, and of course, LTT. However, many of them, who want another Linus hate on those kinds of channels simply because it isn't what they are looking for. There is no indication, at least explicit, that these guys are different from Linus, so many of them treat them like Linus because they cover mostly tech. However, most of them will be disappointed simply because they expect different knowledge, the knowledge that different channels have. I am not saying that they are dumb. I just think they don't show explicitly where their knowledge ends compared to say, Linus, who knows different things about the tech industry. Not more, but different.

      @Koustuv Kanungo I get that. I am just saying that there are a sizable number of fans that treat people like iJustine and MKBHD like they are LTT, which not only hurts their content, I have seen a lot of hate towards both MKBHD and iJustine on their videos for being shills or something for one company or another, but also, it doesn't do anything for the viewer, since they are watching people appreciate something rather than see the flaws and problems in it, from low resolution, no headphone jack, lack of stereo speakers, before saying whether they like it, like how linus said for the note 10. I am not hating on their channels. I respect the people who can get so much good quality content out on a pretty regular basis. But I know a lot of people on the internet do.

      It makes me so sad that these guys have more money than brains. It's wild that they've made it this far. I legit thought those were sponsorships when I saw them in my feed. HOW. ON. EARTH. were they not? Who would spend that much money on such a thing without contacting industry connections, or putting something together with.. you know.. a sponsor...?

      I'm absolutely jealous, but more than that, I just cannot stand how much money people throw away when there are such better options out there.

      I'm still taken completely aback by them not being sponsors? How? Why?

          It's human psychology to "Let the manger deal with it." until it all blows up. So I can understand why he gets pissed. People need to stop giving in to that "Not my problem, until it is." Mentality.

                                  I like the ending notes on the Jellyfish. Personally, I needed a new computer for design, art, and video editing. I wanted more power than a box store product, but I didn't want to buy parts and build my own. So, I shopped through places like Cyberpower because for me, that was the solution I needed. I ended up spending more than if I did it myself, but the ease of it all was more than worth it too me.

                                            As much as I like this, how are they for support? Usually you purchase a pre built machine at a higher price because you get SLAs with it. And that's important if you host a business and want to offload the risk of hardware failure. If you build stuff yourself and it shits the bed, you need to take care of it. If you're lucky, you have that friend Linus. But if you don't want to take that risk, you go with a company and it might cost you more, but you might get a sweet support contract just in case.

                                                Okay, care to specify that? No? Okay, thanks. I'm glad there was a point to having Mr. Kennedy here. (Love STH, by the way. Rock on.)

                                                  @Gunnie To be fair, if you're in the position where knowing the difference actually matters, either you would already know, or you would be reasearching the fuck out of it past this youtube channel anyways. In the end, freeNAS is going to give you the solution either way.

"Oh, here's a company that looks pro and they say they're good so they must be good, so why don't I drop a ton of cash to get the thing worth my every penny?" This is exactly what people in power do. In any topic that requires expertize, they just go to the first door they see and they ask to be fooled. You get what you deserve.

I'm wondering though if this could also apply to the trading system within online games. Thing is i have been playing Path_of_Exile for many years now and as this game grew better in quality and larger in content the trading system became slower and slower because of the insane amount of information the servers have to handle. I spoke with a few the well advised people in the community and they let me know that the core of the problem was more with the software which is making the searches and sorting the listed items than the hardware itself. Can anyone fill me in about these kind of challenges ? … Also i can imagine how the stock market could see promising upgrades if they were provided with an extra layer of security. Thanks and keep us posted :-)
