Default Video reviews are generally useless

Video how-to guides can be very good. A video clip showing something that can't be explained is good.

But a video review of a computer case - or almost any computer hardware not involving a GUI - is nearly useless. I'm shopping for a case but:

#) I have no time to sit and watch a review.
#) I don't need video to understand case issues.
#) I can't save any information from the review.
#) I can't search within the review.

Ultimately, there is no take-away except what I might remember. That translates into a complete waste of time.

I've been away for a while, but I *thought* you guys did written reviews. I'll have to do my research elsewhere this time around, which is too bad.
