This Steam Deck Durability Test had me watching in horror

By - | Views: 24,337

There's been various attempts to show how durable (or not so) the Steam Deck can be in various situations but JerryRigEverything definitely had me wincing. Obviously, a lot of durability tests are rather extreme but even so, it's interesting to see just how much the Steam Deck can take before you might need a replacement.

I went into this video expecting some of the standard stuff but I was honestly horrified at what was done, poor thing. It didn't even get a chance to make a gamer happy before it was tortured.

While this physical abuse to the Steam Deck might seem random, the tests are actually all pretty good to show up really what the Steam Deck is made of and why that carrying case is pretty essential for when you go anywhere. Seriously, I'm still putting mine in it to go downstairs.

Anyway, have a look below:

They are also giving away a Steam Deck, see how to get it on Twitter.

Quoting: GuestDestroying something in high demand that most people won't get until 2023 "just because" is both wasteful and entitled, especially as they had two Decks.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour.

Welcome to the world economy.

Quoting: TheSHEEEPThat's not how hacking works?!

For sure there are other meanings, like modifying someone else's designs (hardware or software).
Of course there is also calling someone a hack. Use as a noun. 😀

showing my age here, but 'hack' and thus 'hacking' in CS comes from the term "a hack job" refering to something done by somebody lacking skills/tool/knowledge to do it.

It was commonly use to describe that mcgyvered "solution" you implemented - as it inevitably happens it was shortened to just "hack"

I mean that's kind of what I call all of my scripts... pretty much hacked together stuff from code examples online, and some of my own wacky logic that somehow works. I once wrote a script that was needed because someone made a terrible choice to have kernels sit outside of the virtual machine... so doing updates was this weird 'ssh in, update, copy initrd out...' etc. that was a 'fun' one.

Quoting: PhiladelphusJust that thumbnail has me wincing—since I don't feel like watching the video, anyone want to spoil it: is the upgraded glass worth it?

Me too! That is horrible basic tool safety. I've seen to many accidents cause of things like that.
