99 of the 795 reviewers have substantial overlapping product review history. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.6 while the reviewers who have a more unique product review history rated this product an average of 4.4. 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.
