Analysis Details

Note: While Amazon claims 18,838 reviews, we counted 18,821 available on their site.

Fail Rating Trend

  • 28%
  • Created over 145 days

We counted 18,821 reviews for this product over the span of 1,857 days, an average of 10.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 22 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 145 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 5,210 reviews were created on just 145 days. The reviews on these high volume days have rated this product an average of 4.1 while reviews from other days have rated this product an average of 3.8. 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.
