I've got to admit, my first thought on this was what the hell? But seriously, people are getting way to crazy about this, I mean motherboard.org making a video calling you crazy? Wtf? Your videos are good and if I must come here to see them so be it. The motherboard tray may, unfortunately, not be removable, but it's still a great case right?

Yea, no kidding, I mean what does another tech site care if I'm unlisting my videos? I really have no idea why that guy at motherboard.org did a video on me unlisting videos. Maybe he had the same thought as you did at the beginning and without thinking shot a video.

Yo rodney, suggest u make the site even more better, and put more content in it.Its already quite good, but u shud seriously beef it up some more, turn it into a powerhouse for gamerz, enthusiasts, etc. That way more ppl will visit ur site, lets make it a heaven for us gamers!!! Oh and I'm not talking abt those crappy disloyal "youtubers", I mean a new fanbase.

To all those out there saying rodney is sold out, and how motherboards.com and Linus are superior, plz note this, motherboards.com is a complete, established website, whose videos are supplementary, while Linus is part of the NCIX store, another established chain. Rodney, on da other hand, is a one man army, who solely depends on video reviews! He himself contacts the sponsors and gets the products to review. So understand the difference.

Oh, and who gives a damn abt comments? I just want to watch quality vids of products and hardware, and not read stupid of comments that majority of youtubers make. You know how bad the situation is at youtube, all those hateful comments, it seriously irks me. Here Rodney has more control, and can del the undesirables, hence making for a better environment.

Fantastic, another person with smarts :) It's good to see folks like yourself coming over here and taking the time to comment.

I find that the smart, shy, intellectual people with common sense don't get involved like they should. This is unfortunate and I hope they'll feel more comfortable posting here instead of YouTube since we screen the comments. We do everything in our power to keep this have free of off-topic, bashful, hurtful and inappropriate comments. I believe my video on YouTube comments suck is very accurate and YouTube really needs to get a handle on it.

*sigh* It's unfortunate that many people have become petty and ungrateful. They don't seem to realise you make these videos and run this website to advise them of great products on the market, that ultimately has an influence towards their final purchases (Be it minor or major).

The "Greed" argument is complete rubbish. Most of the ads on your site are computer related anyway and you need a small amount of income to keep the site running. There's also your investment of your time on these videos you make each week. While it may take a YT commenter 5 seconds to leave a mindless, pointless comment, it takes you hours to create a video review for these ungrateful turds.
So a little bit of revenue from advertisements is completely justified. At the end of the day, they don't have to click on the banner ads.

I completely understand the recent move to focus more on where it all started for you. I'm subscribed to you and see no reason to un-subscribe. If I see videos from you, that's great, I'll watch them.

P.S. I like that you disable comments on youtube. When I watch your videos, I want it to be all about the product you're reviewing, not about mindless nonsense I don't care about.

Keep it up Rodney! 100% kick-ass reviewer.

I don't mind coming to this site. It was pain to browse things on this site a year ago but recently I've noticed many improvements have been made on this site to quickly find stuffs I like. Just don't try to complicate by putting many non-useful links on navigation bar (like: link to RodneyReynolds website which you have removed now, I appreciate) that's what I'd like to suggest. Where do I find link to my account? Or is there any? I can only see "Logout".

People calling "greed" obviously don't know how ads/the internet works.

HAAA i knew it, if rodney doesnt like your comment he can take it out, WHAT A JOKE. Thats not cool, we are all entitled to our opinions, even if they are not so nice sometimes. Oh and searching through your site i found out a comment that left me astonished: its from your NZXT giveaway- member Latoywri said this "gzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!! :D Build something kickass and then show us on YT!!", u see Rod. Hey shouldnt you take that comment out???? WHERE are they going to post it? your site or YT, let me think....YT, duh. I am just saying, if you are fed up with YT just DEAL WITH IT, dont take it out on some of you viewers. OK i am done with my rant. FYI i am subbed to you on YT, i am a member here also, and i support u 100% but keep it up and youll lose a loyal member. I decided to keep anonymous for obvious reasons.

Rodney is not the one removing posts. The joke here is that you fail at trolling and clearly need to stay off the caffine. no

anonymous person and 3GM member!,

I suspect you are angry and blowing off steam and at this time no matter what I do or say, you are going to do what you believe, so I won't even try to comment on your rant.

But I do have a suggestion, why don't you start your own professional review site and do what I do and then pass judgement. Trust me, it's a whole different world when you are looking out from the inside ;)

It's ok I have cooled down, but TBH, what your doing is very risky, and I don't want you to get pummeled by the affects of your actions. I wish I could do my own reviews, that would be great, but I have to finish college. Ohhh if I reviewed stuff I would be good at it. For example, I'd have a test bench for comparing video cards, do avg stock benches as comparisons, then show potential avg overclocks, show stock speed fan temps, then show mild and aggressive speed fan configs while showing the noise difference. Then have another setup for cpu benching, for that I would have a an ok gfx card, highly featured MB (one for Intel and one for amd), bench at stock, then potential overclock benches. For the cooling I would show stock, then midrange, high performance air cooled, and then watercooled (I would use quick connects for that setup). For heatsinks I would use a similar layout as the cpu testbench, have consistant mb,gfx,memory, and cpu, and would use a test with a midtower then a fulltower (both have to be reasonably priced, with a stock configuration). I would then show stock fan settings, aggressive...Also have to show TIM consistency, and for that I would use a non-curing paste, and if the heatsink comes with paste, test that as well. Man the list goes on about how I would review tech products. I am not so good with web design though, that part might be a little challenging for me.

im not subbed to you on youtube (not because of this, its just i never discovered your channle untill motherboards.org made that video) but i do like your videos and i may subscribe. the reason why i say i may sub is because im just so used to going on youtube, clicking my subscriptions button and checking for good videos. and if i have to go through this site to watch them, i may forget aboutt this and not be able to give you views/enjoy your videos

See from my understanding it shouldn't be an issue. You can still subscribe and still catch all the videos. There is a two week delay... but will it really matter? Some other video from two weeks ago will become visible and you'll have something to watch. If you're super loyal to Rodney you'll come here and watch a review a little early.

It seems like the whole thing is a moot issue. And people getting upset over the lack of 'artificial' ratings and comments directly on YouTube.... okay?!?

The reason why you should migrate to your website, is because you wanted viewers to view the advertisment so that you can earn money. Am I right, Rodney?

If it was all about the advertisements I'm sure Rodney could have just spammed his videos with ads, like 60 or 90 second ads at the beginning and adverts in the middle of 10 minute plus videos.

Been reading about this now and seen the Q&A videos, also the link given in reply: http://www.3dgameman.com/q-and-a/370/are-you-leaving-youtube#comment-1764137
And I don't see the big thing in it. All I can think and say is that I can totally understand your decicion Rodney, it make sense to me.

Am daily visiting 3dgameman.com, don't really use youtube.com for your videos.

Professionalism goes a long way and talking smack about another reviews website does not!

Keep up the good work Rodney!

Thanks bud.

Kinda hard to figure out why people are talking smack about me, but I guess it part and parcel of what I do.

BTW: I'm not leaving YouTube ;) LOL

Motherboardsorg channel said you was leaving. Guess how I know that.....I'm subscribed. Guess who I un-subbed from today....

This is very odd. I'm not sure why Motherboards.org would say something like this (if indeed they did). Well, I'm hoping this video and my fans can spread the truth that I'm not currently leaving YouTube, but rather just unlisting future video reviews temporarily. So be spread the word folks :)

Greed.... LOL... Man, some people must think I'm rolling in bling bling :/ All these misunderstanding and people believing what they will regardless what to do or say. Ahh well, I'll just keep pumping these video reviews out, like away and the rest will fall into place :)

I don't see the problem here, it's not like he's really harming anyone, it may take a few seconds extra in your day, but to be honest the interface here is much better to actually navigate to videos, thus, saving time.

The problem is with a few YouTubers, everyone else will be fine with this and understand why I''m doing it. The unfortunately thing is the few who are very upset with my unlist decision will register a million YouTube accounts and vote down my videos, come over here and leave pointless comments. The good thing is though that these types, move on to something else in no time flat. LOL

I didn't think you were leaving YT. And they don't have to watch every video. I watch the videos that I think will have interest to me, sorry but I don't watch 100% of your videos (hey you don't watch my videos do you?). For example, the GPU reviews. I haven't watch one of those in a long time. I might start though as I'm thinking about getting a new one or build a new system. Your videos have helped me out in the past with previous builds, and so have others and their videos. I'm one of those that don't put all my eggs in one basket, or get all my research from 1 reviewer. I just liked seeing your videos listed on YT so I could go to 1 place to watch videos.
It could be that people are upset because they are watching your videos on an internet ready TV or on a game system that can get to YT but not to your site. But if they are leaving comments here, they can get to your site. So what's the big deal? Come here to watch the video, or come here to get the link to your video. Maybe now my subscription area on YT won't be flooded with 3DGM videos :)
Have a good one, and keep up the good work. I know how tough it is. And I appreciate all the hard work you put into these videos/reviews.

I kind of want to pull his earring and guide him around the room.

It's a pretty low blow in my opinion. I don't know who he is or what he does because I don't watch other review sites. But, it comes off as very very low class.

Not to mention, his 'show' seems like a complete rip off of Rodney's format.

I'm surprised there's not more "Rodney has gone crazy" videos popping up lately ;) I obviously haven't gone nuts, but I guess there are some that will disagree ;) And no matter what I say or do will convince them otherwise.

I can tell you this though. You won't find me doing a video talking smack about another reviewers website. But if others feel like they have to do it, so be it. It's free publicity after all. LOL

Lol what answer that guy gave^^. Never liked his channel because he acts like he is really important in the hardware industrie. (He must be on steroids :P ) Totally disagree with Rodney going bananas.
