    This year youtube has been more and more painful to watch.. I have no idea why HD videos were loading so quickly earlier this year and now its like im on a land line connection with aol 3.0.. I dont even bother anymore with that site anymore. Sorry TF reviewers...

    I thought it was just my connection but the videos load painfully slow all the time now.

    i like that HD is available but i rarely use it to watch things on utube.

    being in a country where you get charged by the gigabyte not the speed, HD is a luxury for some.

    No 4 minute video that takes 30 minutes to load is a luxury.

    I quit watching YouTube after I learned that my internet provider charges me every time that I go over the limit in how many KBs I can download.

    The problem with youtube is that they are shifting more of their bandwidth towards the tv and movie content. You know, the stuff that advertisers REALLY want to place their ads with. So as more TV content arrives on youtube, expect the video section's bandwidth to shrink even greater. :(
