Analysis Details

Note: While Amazon.co.uk claims 234 reviews, we counted 136 available on their site.

Fail Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 18 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 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.

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 136 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.
