    Funny how the screen didn't get scratched to shit, considering how "easy" the dock seems to scratch it, according to reports. My screen is still perfect.

    Yes it's not glass like he says but the test is still sound.

    EDIT: Oops, meant to post this in hardware section.

    It's a durability test, but who, in their normal lives, would take a knife or a hammer to a gaming console? :v

    Well this demonstrates why Nintendo used plastic on the screen instead of glass

    Now, time to sell it on Ebay as "Slightly Used" and get $400+ for it.

    Make sure you list it as "untested" and "as-is" so they can't file a claim

    most of this video is bs when he barely applies any pressure or force to the tests
    we already saw the screen will scratch at a mohs hardness scale of 3 or more, the jerryrigeverything video even scratches it fairly easily with a house key
    the hammer test is just a rubber mallet and giving it love taps

    Wow, his camera is garbage and barely shows what he's doing with the constant bad focus. I find this guys videos better:

    I think we have all seen this already, hence the title of thread. One could also say this video is shit since he doesn't do a hardness level test on the dock itself.

    True, he should have tested the dock--but it's pretty well known plastic can scratch plastic, and even minor particles in the dock could scratch it with repeated use also.

    That's like saying metal can scratch metal which only makes you look like a fool.

    Brass wire is softer than steel wire or stainless steel wire, and offers a brushing action that will not scratch harder metals. Just as softer disposable water bottles will not scratch harder plastics.

    Fair enough, I'm not as well versed or well written to express what I was saying I suppose. Either way, the video is poor quality and constantly zooms and blurs which doesn't show detail--in particular, the part where the back is scratched with a knife, it zooms in to show a blurry black screen. Now, it's irrelevant since it's going to be scratched by a knife--I'll remember not to have a knife fight with my switch--but overall I find the other video more informative and with better presentation. That's all.

    You can clearly see the scratches on the back later in the video. You can also see zero scratches on the screen later in the video as he moves it around, I am not praising the quality of his filming skills, just the results of the test which you can clearly see if you actually look.

    hitting it with a blunt object that size is not a good test. Hit it with the claw end of a hammer and then well see.
    smack it against a desk corner. see if it damages the screen. Its not hard to test it. I wonder what hes gonna do with it. It like to have the rest of it. id take the joycons and the dock
