This is my first video I actually put more than a modicum of effort and production value into. It's not professional level, and I have a bit of a cold, but it is something I wanted to make regarding the SGI Fuel.

Feel free to comment and tell me what you think. Yes, I have a shaky camera - it's my Nexus 5X as I lack a dedicated filming camera (for now)

Nice one chap. Got to say though my FUELS have been very reliable (Including the flaps, although I know one day I will come home and my children will have ripped them off somehow).. luck of the draw? oh and did I hear right, I'm sure the lower PCi slots are 66MHZ?

New video. Thoughts are appreciated. I have allergies which caused me to sneeze a lot during recording so I had to edit/cut those out.

Neat! If you have a camera (or even a phone with a decent camera), you might consider filming one of your Indys for some parts of the video. While I sometimes use pictures from the web, especially in my history series or if I don't have the system I'm talking about, I try to film systems for real when I can. Not necessarily needed, but it could help improve quality.

I have a Nexus 5x with a decent camera but I tend to get shaky camera as I don't have a tripod or anything.. I have some clips I'm gonna use for later videos however, and I'm eventually getting a camera for those parts. I took the majority of the Indy shots including the thumbnail, besides the two I grabbed from wikimedia.
