Using Youtube for doing product research

Written by James McDonald

I have been thinking about getting a micro sized Linux desktop / laptop machine. I hate buying something without getting a 3rd opinion from someone who has used it.

On Youtube you can get user and industry trade reviews. When I was looking at the Asus EeePC there was a heap of information on there. I was able to answer questions like: How long does it take to boot? What is the keyboard like to use? What sort of interfaces does it have? If, after watching the video, you peruse the comments you will find out if the reviewer is one eyed or to use the Fox networks term in an honest setting “Fair and Balanced”.

So if you have a need for a first look of a product, without it being your own. Try Youtube!
