“AEAC”… For me, it’s simple… I steer clear of the garbage and will only review what I feel will be of value to you guys.  There have been times where I’ve turned down product on account of this. …

Respectfully, Steve, I think this is a mistake, and that it hurts your credibility. If you only review what you believe to be good products, then you will have a channel full of “feel-good” videos. No doubt your instinct would be right most of the time, but it is also a bit narrow minded to pass summary judgment. Maybe a product with a terrible reputation would surprise you when they fixed some historical problems with it? Or maybe there were some hidden positive aspects that you would never discover. 

Since it takes so much time to put up a nicely researched and edited review, maybe the way to handle it is if a product starts to seem bad, you would just not spend so much time on it. It would be a more basic video.

Try not to sugar coat something if it’s not up to expectation. 

Lastly, a more negative reivew (or at least not positive!) now and then would really help your credibility.
