Asus VS238 LED Monitor Unboxing

Asus VS238 LED Monitor Unboxing
Full Review of this Monitor Coming Soon! http://amzn.to/1U0d3wf
This Asus Monitor is LED and is amazing for graphic design and video editing. I’ve been using it for a few days since the unboxing and I’m very happy with it. This one of the best monitors you can get on a budget for under $150.

This Asus monitor is something I’m using as an external monitor for my laptop and it’s got a beautiful screen and it helping me with editing in Premiere Pro when I want to use my other work area.

This monitor is great for photographers, designers, and video editors but it is not the only option for a great budget monitor.

Seagate Personal Cloud 6TB Review

Seagate Personal Cloud 6TB Review 4.75/5 Rating
More Tech Videos & Reviews: https://goo.gl/cDfoZY

In this video I review the Seagate Personal Cloud 6TB Backup System. This is a cloud based backup solution I’m using for archiving my video files and accessing them remotely via the cloud.

I have lot of hard drive solutions I am using but this is a dedicated video bakcup solution for my the video files I use to produce my YouTube channel and my film making projects.

At some point I will do a video where I outline my entire backup architecture and file storage system.

Seagate was awesome in sending this for me to review. You can see more of their products here:
www.seagate.com/?cmpid=smc-storytellers-­robertoblake

Recommended Seagate Solutions
Seagate Personal Cloud 6TB http://amzn.to/1h8tusK
Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB http://amzn.to/1Mnp7VV
Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Desktop http://amzn.to/1WnRsAe
Seagate Wireless 2TB http://amzn.to/1Mnpekv

Some of things I really like about the Seagate Personal Cloud is the RAID 1 mirror for secure file storage. It means that 2 hard drives would have to fail for me to lose my files. As long as one hard drive is secure my files will always be there. For video file storage this is a must in my opinion.

This solution not only works with both my Mac and PC but also my mobile devices for iOS and Android.

RODE Video Mic Go Unboxing and First Impressions

RODE Video Mic Go Unboxing and First Impressions
Buy the RODE Video Mic Go http://amzn.to/1O0XqUQ
I just purchased the RODE Video Mic Go as a shotgun mic for my DSLR Camera. Since the making of this video I’ve used it a few times and I’m impressed with the overall sound quality and build quality. the RODE Video Mic Go is easy to use and produces great results for DSLR Audio.

I’m going to give it a 4.5 out 5 Rating because I wish at this price it had one or two extra features like the Rode Video Mic Pro or at least came with a windmuff.
