Fail Deleted Reviews
We discovered a total of 174 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 4.5. Even though deleted reviews don't affect the average rating, the fact that action was taken to delete reviews raises some red flags about the integrity of the reviews for the product as whole.
There are a few limitations to keep in mind regarding the Deleted Reviews test:
- We don't have a magic ability to collect every single deleted review; we can only identify reviews as deleted if we collect them on one date and then notice they are no longer visible on a subsequent date.
- We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
- We also don't know why these reviews were removed. It could be action from the platform, personal decision by the review author, part of an entire account closure, even some data error on our part, etc.

Fail Suspicious Reviewers
47 of the 108 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. This is an excessively large percentage of Take-Back Reviewers which may indicate unnatural reviews.
Fail Overlapping Review History
Reviewers of this product have ALSO reviewed the following products:
40 of the 108 reviewers have substantial overlapping product review history. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.5 while the reviewers who have a more unique product review history rated this product an average of 3.9. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.
Warn Rating Trend
- Created over 3 days
We counted 108 reviews for this product over the span of 1,559 days, an average of 0.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 2 or fewer reviews on any given day.
However, we see the following 3 days exceeding this threshold:
Warn Unverified Purchases
58 of the 108 total reviews for this product are unverified purchases. While this is a higher percentage of unverified purchases than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the unverified purchases and verified purchases isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.
Unverified purchases may be the result of Kindle Unlimited readers, buyers who didn't pay full price, or reviewers who did not purchase the product at Amazon. Read more about our Unverified Purchases test.
Warn Incentivized Reviews
On Oct 3, 2016, Amazon prohibited incentivized reviews, however we still test for them since there are still millions in our dataset.
11 of the 108 total reviews for this product admitted to receiving a free or discounted product in exchange for a review. While we could not find a statistically significant difference between the average rating of incentivized reviews and non-incentivized reviews, the presences of at least one incentivized review indicates that there may be more, since not all reviewers will disclose that they had received an incentive to post a review.
Read more about our Incentivized Reviews test, or check out our study showing that Incentivized Reviewers are much more likely to leave a positive review.
Warn Phrase Repetition
Reviews that contain one of these phrases are NOT necessarily devalued; read more about how this test works here.
