Analysis Details

Note: While Amazon claims 430 reviews, we counted 463 available on their site.

Fail Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 73 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 4.3. 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.

Fail Rating Trend

  • 58%
  • Created over 26 days

We counted 463 reviews for this product over the span of 650 days, an average of 0.7 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 5 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 26 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 267 reviews were created on just 26 days. The reviews on these high volume days have rated this product an average of 4.9 while reviews from other days have rated this product an average of 3.9. 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.

Fail Reviewer Participation

  • 56%
  • From reviewers with an overrepresented participation

We see the following 1 participation group with a statistically significant greater concentration than what we'd expect to see:In total, we found that 259 reviewers (or 56%) are within an overrepresented participation group. These reviews have rated this product an average of 4.6, while all other reviews 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.

Fail Skewed Helpfulness
We examined the average net helpfulness score of negative reviews against the average net helpfulness score of positive reviews. The net helpfulness score is the number of times a review has been marked as helpful minus the number of times a review has been marked as unhelpful. We found that the negative reviews had an average net helpfulness score of -4.2 while the positive reviews had an average net helpfulness score of -0.3. Based on our statistical modeling, this discrepancy is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, but possibly due to influence of unnatural voting patterns.

Pass Incentivized Reviews
On Oct 3, 2016, Amazon prohibited incentivized reviews, however we still test for them since there are still millions in our dataset.


10 of the 463 total reviews for this product admitted to receiving a free or discounted product in exchange for a review. This is within an acceptable range and it does not appear to be significantly affecting the overall rating for this product.
