Yo I'm Brian from BadSeed Tech and I review PC hardware and peripherals.  But not in a "read you the box and show you some product shots" kind of way.  I like to dig deep and figure out exactly what a product will and - more importantly - what a product WON'T do.  Thats the stuff that never makes the front of the box.  The stuff you only find out about AFTER you spend your money, get it home, and wind up digging through some obscure user forums.  That sucks.  I'm here to help fight that.

If you're reading this right now, you essentially stepped on at the ground floor.  My main mission right now is to make more videos for you more often.  The fact is - making these videos costs time and money - in some cases a lot of both.  Average production time on one of my videos is around 15-20 hours.  Budget for a video can range anywhere from $50-$500 - sometimes more - depending on what I'm reviewing.

I don't have any interest in marketing a product to you that isn't worth your money so I can get a small kickback.  And companies are happy to send out products for review as long as you're singing their praises and helping move units.  Get too honest in a video and you might risk that relationship.

Do I still make those honest videos? Absolutely. Have companies ghosted me because of something I’ve said in a review? You bet. I got into YouTube to be a reviewer - to provide a balance for the consumer against marketing and hype - not to be an affiliate marketer.

I'm passionate about what I do. My relationship with viewers is one based on trust. If we don't have that, then all I'm doing is making fancy commercials in exchange for free stuff. Gross.

Funding through Patreon gives me the ability to review whatever you want to see - without worrying about how I'm going to pull that off financially.  And at some point, will allow me to go full time so I can get those reviews in front of you even faster.

Now this isn't to say I won't use affiliate links.  They are a great way for viewers to support creators if used with integrity.  And I'm not saying I won't do sponsored ads in my videos. But I'll promise you this:

I will never encourage you to buy something nor I will never take money to promote something that I don’t believe in.

If any of that resonates with you on some level, or if I have saved you some money or headache at some point, then I humbly ask you to support me in my efforts to build something great.

Thanks so much for reading, thanks for your support, and stay up.
