@JoYo It was a 'review' but the first 4 minutes and 14 seconds were just about the future trash. But also I just don't get this concept of reviewing boxes and plastic shrink wrap so I could do without all unboxing videos if they don't have time to do anything I can't do myself by visiting a K-Mart and fondling all the retail products I see (until I'm asked to leave)
I can skim a page of text at a glance, home in on a couple of paragraphs that look relevant, and decide whether the rest is worth reading. There are no background music or flashy graphics to compensate for a weak argument, and I block the adverts.
On top of that, a page of text is usually better organised than a video, so I'll have a clearer idea of what's been said at the end of it.
@swaggboi @JoYo Searching for the elderly GTX 1050 graphics card that's in this PC, I find reviews on lots of sites, including Tom's Hardware. I suspect there are wasters looking to get clicks by wittering on YouTube about the colour of the box ten minutes after a product is released, but serious reviews take a little longer to check, edit and publish.
