Analysis Details

Note: While Amazon.com claims 136 reviews, we counted 105 available on their site.

Fail Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 25 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:
  1. 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.
  2. We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
  3. 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

Take-Back Reviewers


42 of the 105 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. The Take-Back Reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.7 while the reviewers who don't have any deleted reviews in their history have rated this product an average of 4.3. 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.

Single-Day Reviewers


6 of the 105 reviewers have written multiple reviews but posted all of them on a single day. The Single-Day reviewers have rated this product an average of 3.5 while all other reviewers rated this product an average of 4.5. 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.

The average ease score for reviewers of this product is 4.4, while the average ease score for reviewers in this category is 4.3.

Warn Brand Repeats

Brand Loyalists


3 of the 105 reviewers have reviewed multiple products but half or more of their reviews are for this brand. While this is more Brand Loyalists than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Brand Loyalists and non-loyalists isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.
