Fail Deleted Reviews

Fail Reviewer Ease
The ease score is the average rating for all reviews that a given reviewer submits. The average ease score for reviewers of this product is 4.4, while the average ease score for reviewers in this category is 4.2. 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.

  • 8%
  • Created over 28 days

We counted 2,794 reviews for this product over the span of 2,889 days, an average of 1.0 review per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 6 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 28 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 222 reviews were created on just 28 days. Although any days with a larger number of reviews than expected is suspicious, these reviews do not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.
