Hello YouTube! – Unboxing a Brother MFC-J6710DW

There is just something special about opening that new box for the first time. Whether it be a present for a special occasion such as a birthday or at Christmas. Or just opening a new piece of technology for the first time.

But some people take this experience too far, they get to the line in the stand between alright and too far and jump it with all they can, the result: Unboxing video’s on YouTube. We are those sort of people. So here we are, the very first (of hopefully many) YouTube videos.

This video was shot on my iPhone 4S (so that you can experience EXTREME close up product shots. There was no holding back in this video, everything is exposed!)

The product in question is the Brother MFC-J6710DW. It set us (well the client) back around $360AUD, but can be found for under $300AUD if you shop around.
