It does what other sharpening tools do!  It just automates it.  If you don't want or need that level of automation, it's perfectly OK to skip it!

There is NO magic to any of this.  All sharpening is, is increasing the contrast on the edges of shapes, tonality, and colors.

As far as the neutrality of the reviewers goes.  They aren't making but a few cents per sale.  the vendors HOPE it will buy some partiality, but in order to make enough money from those commissions, the reviewers have to build up their credibility with the viewers.  Those vloggers that steer them wrong, don't have any credibility and don't make many sales.  Stick to those reviewers who have credibility in your eyes, and don't worry about how they monetize what they do.

I note that you haven't criticized DPR because it does the same thing, AND it is owned by Amazon.  Why is that?
