Well thank you for the compliment! All of the videos are filmed in my living room and I'm currently doing a Behind the Scenes, explaining my setup, the filming process and the editing that goes into the review. :D

It's funny, because I interrupted an episode of BSG (season 4 episode 12, fwiw, and yes, my girlfriend is really into BSG...she rocks!) last night to watch that case review. She commented that Dimitry must be a proud canadian, because of his accent. I told her that based on his accent and name, he probably comes from the Baltic region, or some such area.

Coincidence that XNine thought the same thing as she.

Also, I'm going to 'work on her' to allow me to upgrade my current enclosure to a Phantom 820 in a few months. This review will be the review that kickstarted it!

Haha. I believe XNine is in Colorado so we can forgive him for the mistake. Good thing I don't do reviews. With my newfie accent I'd really confuse him...

Yeah, I'm in CO. But good to know that Dimitry isn't Canadian... now all of my hopes that all Canadians sounding that way is ruined. :(

Oh I wouldnt go THAT far. D is as Canadian as hockey and poutine....its just that you would be better served assuming the typical Canuck'er sounds more Irish/Scottish than Slov. I saw that as a proud newfie who knows that NFLD's real number one export is 'village idiots'...who have a tendency to breed like rabbits. :P

Nice review D. If this had been released last week I would have probably used in my latest build. Just my luck. :(

Nothing wrong with that, as do I.
Though my Mother stopped talking Russian/German and my Father German when I was 13 because my english suffered.

Proud canadians none the less.
Maybe Xnine had a Bromance going for ya

Does anyone else find themselves reading 'modular' in Dimitry's voice from the reviews?

I love hockey (actually, most Americans don't get along with me because I mock football (handegg) since it's such a nancy sport compared to hockey.

Did you know that while NHL players are 20% smaller than NFL players, the hits they deliver and take are 17% HARDER than hits in the NFL? ESPN did the science behind it.

Chicks dig Russians. Seriously though, you've got probably the cleanest reviews out there. Very well thought out and the timing of your video and audio is impeccable. You also point out negatives and don't just give everything an approval, which makes for honest, unbiased reviews. Exactly what consumers are looking for.
