Reviews

My reviews have a strong practical emphasis. Things don’t always translate nicely from paper to real life, and that’s just a fact. But measurements are useful for establishing objectivity and they have their place, so I’ll try to also tie in some solid measurements to back up my opinions. It’s all about striking that balance.

For video-format reviews, please see my YouTube channel here

With the implementation of my grading system, I’m working through a backlog of old reviews to bring them up-to-date.
