Let’s get started with hardware Unboxed. That’s right, not a product, not a hardware company , just another channel on youtube. Today, the channel released a video about an e-mail exchange they had with LG.
Unsurprisingly, it was not a good situation. According to the communications, LG sent a monitor for review to hardware unboxed, and when hardware unboxed was ready to publish it, LG decided to implement an Embargo date for the monitor. Ok, fine, Hardware unboxed obliged and then LG, out of nowhere slapped them with a review ”Guide”. They basically gave Hardware unboxed a list of points to cover in the video and then Asked for a draft of the product review before the video went live, and then promised to discuss additional compensation for editing said draft.
