Red Digital Cinema has come under fire recently over allegations that their Mini-Mag storage cards are just cheap commodity SSDs in a fancy enclosure. As it turns out, there's some truth to these assertions, but the situation is not quite as simple as it's made out to be. Let's unwrap it.

  • Lintus the OG

  • Then all of their products are probably overpriced and shitty.

  • Seems like both companies are guilty of unfair and dishonest marketing and in Reds case, litterally gouging consumers for a fancy red case.

  • Jinni: Red’s bad! Red: No u Linus: I’m about to end these men’s whole careers.

  • Everyone who isn't a rancid RED fanboy knows they're a garbage company. Jarred Land is just following the river of bullshit pioneered by Jim.

  • 5:30 Mac users let us introduce ourselves....

  • Those cards look like tiny little packs of delicious cigarettes.

  • 11:40 that short background laugh from someone in the crew and Linus containing his own laugh afterwards. G O L D

  • Well said! 14:15

  • Is Linus really arguing people should not be surprised they were being 'scammed' by Red for their ridiculous markups, and this makes it all 'ok'?

  • 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

  • This is impressive and sad at the same time, what a way to scam people with old hardware.

  • On a positive side, using custom connector can make both on the camera and on the SSD more resistent to wear.

  • Fuck RED! Fuckin greedy pcs of shit!

  • Thanks to Jinni Tech for the great original video (with no commercial at all), forcing you to finally do that video (filled with commercial) about this Red BS with their mini mag cards. And as you so often say in this video "Whatever".

  • The only overly expensive thing about the RED Mini Mag is the casing itself...literally.

  • Absolutely hilarious, I'm a Blackmagic shooter sense their early days and I even wrote my Msc. thesis on this matter, how Red was able over charge for their products and how with out any fight from customers, they made millions on up-selling cheap and available technology, I compared Red to the business model of Blackmagic Design " developing high end products at cheaper prices" and how that would change the marker forever. 5 year later Red is caught cheating and black magic Releases a 6k camera capable of raw recording and it cost 2.5k. #mindblown #imtheoracle

  • i love his physical violence as an expression of hate towards items on his video. slapping an ssd, throwing it on the table...... so funny

  • 1:43 Step 2... *Step 4*

  • Wow Linus - kudos for speaking your mind. Great video!

  • This is absolute garbage, it's just an ssd with an interface thrown onto it, this is nothing more than DRM so they can charge an arm and a leg

  • Why is Linus defending Red ? For selling cheap stuff at 42 times the price ???? Does he get free media from Red ??? Probably Wright ..... 😉

  • Had to stop watching as it just felt like excuses for RED. Hopefully, it became or balanced but I can’t believe anyone would cover for RED on this. Oh btw this is not a bot. May check back later to see how it finishes up but literally couldn’t watch any more. Best bit was when you said you called RED on it years ago but then you seemed to be ok with the price they charge?

  • Ari Alexa time

  • what im getting from this is that Red is scamming their customers and Linus is okay with it. what a douche

  • Surely someone watching this now has both the idea and the opportunity to go and create a RAID-mag for the REDs?

  • Did I understand anything? No Did I enjoy the video? Hell yeah

  • oh wow someone believed enterprise gear actually costs this much. How cute...

  • We knew this is 2013 when I opened a card on the Red Epic...

  • So RED is basically run by greedy scumbags.

  • This was awesome.

  • Redundant recording to two seperate cards at once should have been the standard in all professional cameras ten years ago. But somehow, it is still not even the norm in 2019...

  • wait, so, the whole time it's just been an ssd inside a case, and nobody bothered to open one up and look until now?

    • Lots of people opened it up and complained about it. But as Linus says, it just didn't blow up until another scam competitor tried to cash in on it..

  • These are commercial products. Commercial products having always done things like this to make extra profit where they can. Its not like the price of their cards was a secret, you knew the price of their cards before you bought the camera and factored that into your decision.

  • Linus. You just killed them. Total smack down.

  • i dont think ive ever seen linus so savage b4..he was clearly quite annoyed.. i found it quite amusing tho.. 😏

  • why is anyone surprised? When Audio companies keep selling $1000 per meter cable wires & freaking USB cables & $200 electromagnetic stabilizer stones

  • 1:40 where did step 3 go Linus?? 😂

  • Sata? Not "S aa ta"

  • SO red have found a way to throttle 3rd party suppliers kit. how very Apple of them.

  • I have absolutely no idea what product that video was about but I still enjoyed it.

  • savage linus, best linus

  • When it comes down to being technical, misleading the customer by exaggerating a claim is in fact bait and switch false advertising. Until we the people stop accepting such clear and obvious deceptions, these bait and switch scenarios will continue to happen. This is the fault of the political system of extremes. Rather than passing legislation that protects people from false claims, the extremist on the right declare: "there's to many regulations." while the extremists on the left declare business to be evil incarnate. The truth is, neither the left nor the right is willing to pass reasonable regulations that both protect consumers while not putting companies out of business. Eliminating misleading advertisement will not put companies out of business, it will only serve to make business more ethical, and that won't hurt anyone.

  • Scratches at a level 6 With deeper groves at level 7 (Idk if people would get I was making that joke because he took it apart Like JerryRigEverything)

  • So essentially shove it to both companies and buy from the competitors 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Just me or is Linus's eye drooping a little bit? =|

  • I mean its not bad when you consider apple sell a stand for $999 XD

  • LTT, coming in hot!!!

  • so basically both sides are wrong and this has been the truth for a good bit and everybody is just slow

  • NGL, I'm more distracted by the fact linus started to fling the parts around 😂😂

  • Let's check Sony F65 and their cards! :)

  • Step 1 Step 2 Step 4 Step 4 or 5, I don't know what step we're on

  • Ting is a rip-off. I'm honestly surprised LTT promotes these thieves

  • Red are such scammers! This is hilarious!

  • This would have made me sick if I owned a Red. But when I do I will be well informed. Thank you

  • Shopify Stores : “ we make the best margins ” Red : “ hold my mini mag ”

  • Best Linus video in....well I think this is their best video.

  • Very good exposure of both parties.

  • Red, for when you really wanna empty your wallet.

  • Hmmm how much of your project footage was lost to get this vid made?

  • This is why I've never even looked at a red product. How did everyone not see this before?!? Genuinely confused🙍‍♂️🤷‍♂️

  • This was such a nice video. Thanks for making it!

  • Reminds me of panasonics ridiculous priced p2 memory cards

  • It wouldn't be a LTT vid without Linus dropping or hitting something XD 12:03

  • wow, Linus. Well handled. If I spent approximately 20+ thousand dollars on my business's Camera to find out it's all a BS markup. You, my friend, are a god at keeping your cool on camera.

  • "Quality, from the United Kingdom!". Hahahahahahaha!

  • Videos like this are why I love your channel.

  • 11:40 LOL

  • RED should add some rgb lights from now on to justify the price of an ssd, ahahahahah😄😄

  • I know you guys make crazy money but why the hell would you spend 10s of thousands of dollars to film stationary videos..... smh

  • "viral" says the guy who got 1.6m when referring to a 76k video

    • Depends on the sub, bro. 76k on <1k subs is viral, 1.6m on 8.9m sub isn't

    • that's still viral. we're kinda desensitized to popularity but a mob of 76k people could easily destroy a power plant. it seems small in numbers, but the weight of their emotions is really, really powerful.

  • wow, this channel is really great. i mean, to maintain objectivity with such a subscriber count and revenue is really impressive. keep it up!!!

  • My saviour

  • Linus does not need tools to pry open any hardware. With a couple of ooopses and hand gestures he will disassemble anything during the clip...

  • True or fake their propietary bs is too expensive but well... if apple can do it.....

  • Wait, was step 3?

  • Dontcha just love it when liars get into a pissing contest and are caught "RED" handed.

  • The old FAT file systems are horrible in more than one way when it comes to flash media. Leave old obsolete file systems where they belong: In the past... On the spinning rust... which it was ultimately designed for. Personally, I don't understand why the industry has held onto it for so long. Especially when there's far FAR FAAAR better file systems that are free to use both for commercial as well as personal use. I guess it's that M-(dollar sign) company that refuses to update and adapt.

  • So ....when Jim Jannards Oakley’s were made out of “Unubtanium” .....not much different than his Red marketing. Still love their cameras.

  • wouldn't have this problem if we just used claymation for everything.
