Actually, that's a misconception!

OK, it's definitely true that 98% of a certain kind of reviewer seem to hate the Mirage. And those would be the spoiled, entitled, traditional "enthusiast" reviewers. EG: typically Americans and Brits who work for big name enthusiast rags/sites/channels (or the self-styled wannabe's who aspire to be like them).
But there are plenty of level-headed reviewers who see the Mirage for what it is, and understand the target market. See the above link for plenty of those.
I thought about doing a counter-review to Doug's, but I never got around to it. I guess I still could. The Mirage review for people who "get it".
I enjoyed reading Doug before he got crazy with YouTube. The thing that I find most annoying is the sheer repetition. His videos are annoyingly formulaic, cookie-cutter, boring.

But I don't watch/read anywhere near as much as I used to.
