Hardware Unboxing Videos


aka ginger warlock
I am more than willing to admit I am amongst the many that people may see as a little sad and pathetic; I watch unboxing videos. If I hear about a new bit of tech such as a phone, tablet, console or laptop I will watch the video. Aside from anything else I like being able to see the new technology being used and I am also kind of a sucker for the packaging that a lot of technology comes in, I have kept most of the boxes that my tech has come in aside from my PC. Aside from the whole "but what if it breaks" I just like having it. When I opened my Mac Book Pro for the first time it was a lovely experience, it was so clean and well thought out.

I have already seen unboxing vids for the Xbox One and PS4 mostly to see what they look like and also to see any hints of which console I may like to purchase next year. Do you tend to watch them or are you not bothered? If you do why do you watch them? Have you ever made one?

I have watched them before, I tend to stick to the high quality stuff though. So many people put out videos that are just sad and pathetic, why put up a video of such low quality that even the geekiest of people won't enjoy watching?

I do like unboxing videos, just to sort of guide me around things that included in any given package, and to familiarize myself with the tech. I watched a few motherboard unboxing videos from newegg before I bought my comptuer last year, you actually learn a bit if the person knows what they're talking about.

And yes, I'll admit that I did watch a Wii U unboxing video as well as a 2DS unboxing fairly recently :lol:. I learned some things though, that's important. I haven't watched one for the ONE or the PS4 yet.


I love them, I find them oddly relaxing. I could watch unboxing videos all day. I also like to watch "room tour" or "desk tour" videos that some people upload. Where people just walk around their room talking about what's in it.
