FAQ: Why I say both positive & negative things in reviews


Q: "Why do you do say both positive and negative things in your product reviews?"
  • Because that's what a product review is -- an evaluation of the product in the context of its intent and a report on its good and bad aspects. If I only looked for good things to talk about, that would be an advertisement.  I'd also see it as a disservice to viewers, who deserve balanced & thorough narrative. I, personally, never trust any source of information that is 100% positive (or negative) about things, because I know they're consciously looking for one side of things and intentionally ignoring the other. Now, most of my "JANGBRiCKS" video reviews are mostly positive, because most of the products I review are very good and enjoyable.  When I encounter something that doesn't stand up to the level of quality or value I expect, though, I say so.  If I think something is a really bad deal or poorly made, I say so.  Thus, both positives and negatives are covered in my reviews, as seems appropriate to me.
