I spent some time over the last several weeks putting in an upgraded PC for the Studio. I had been running a home build Intel Core i3 530 / 8GB RAM / 120GB SSD that was getting a little long in the tooth for what I was doing with it. Besides daily use, the studio pc does all the edits, both audio and video for the several podcasts that I do weekly. A one hour video podcast was taking up to 3 hours to render in 1080p with the older box. With the new setup, I can render that sameClick for more / Podcast Player>

- OK - I'm a Tech GeekJuly 22, 2017 by stevesleep from United States
I admit it. I love tech. I can't get involved in everything so it's great listening to Home Gadget Geeks. Keeps me updated on everything from blockchains to BBQ. Good job Jim and Mike!

- Good stuff for average guys like meFebruary 12, 2015 by RandyCantrell from United States
I’m not one of those subscribe-to-every-tech podcast out there kinda guys. I’m technically inclined, but bored easily with those high brow “I”m the smartest guy in the room and want everybody to know it.” Jim is a terrific host and conversationalist. I can easily listen to Jim and his guests knowing I may be the dumbest guy in the room, but they always make me feel smarter for listening.
- Informative and entertainingOctober 6, 2014 by mavace from United States
There is a reason I look forward to this show each week and that is because it is the perfect mix of information and entertainment. Jim and his guests are great to listen to and I come away having learned something every week.
- VPNs for secure WiFi, ethical hacking, and more, great stuff!June 23, 2014 by tinkererguy from United States
I always enjoy listening to Christian, and the various guests Jim just keeps managing to find. You'll want to pay attention to this podcast, it requires it, in a good way!
- Great showAugust 4, 2013 by kwpheasey from United States
One of the best shows for the home pc enthusiast. I've been listening to it each week for over two years and I'd highly recommend it. Jim and team are very professional and the show is very informative.

- Becoming My Favorite PodcastJuly 24, 2012 by awraynor from United States
I first hear Jim over at the HomeServer Show podcast. I quickly became interested in a home server after my desktop literally crashed (was knocked over) by my 13 year old. My wife then game me carte blanche to recover my wedding/honeymoon photos and then guarantee they were never at risk again. When he went out on his own at theaverageguy I made sure to listen every week. His cohosts are great, with Christian making me feel like such an underachiever. When you realize how young he is you will feel the same way too. I also like how the internet/podcasts have helped tech geeks from all over the world come together and discuss their common interests. Subscribe, you won't be disappointed.
- Great Tech ShowJuly 23, 2012 by GMSchmidt from United States
I am one of the rotational guest on the show. I enjoy my turn in talking about tech with the regulars and enjoy listening to the show weekly. I like that The Home Tech Podcast brings together a good group of people and is such a nice community to learn from. Thanks for the oppurtunities and the podcasts... keep them going.

- Home Tech delivered with fun.December 12, 2011 by ukhomeservershowgeek from United Kingdom
Great team of tech heads spun out from the homeservershow. Great listening for all home tech including home storage and pc based homes. One of my top 5 podcasts. I am in UK but all good from US and AUS perspective.
