Getting back to the points in the OP... That is because they know PLANofMAN has a plan, man. Why not simply give them a succinct and honest answer? "Which razor is better, A or B?" I found razor A to work better than razor B. Preferences vary among individuals, so you might find razor B to work better than razor A. or I have used razor A and like it, but I have never used razor B. For that reason, I can't really say which one is better. If you join the forum, you will probably find people who have used both, and can provide sage advice. Easy peasy, and also an opportunity to recruit new Shave Den members. Many of the popular reviewers get free stuff from the vendors to review. Some also receive payment from YouTube, so it's not like they are not compensated.
