Overall, well worth the couple of minutes it takes to watch.
Very nice production quality. The choice of topics to start with is good, too. The products they chose to start with are things that just about every entry-level pilot should have or consider.
My only criticism would be that they talk too fast. I'd like to see a slower, more thoughtful discussion of the chosen topic.
