Analysis Details

Fail Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 44 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 4.1. 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 Unverified Purchases

64 of the 142 total reviews for this product are unverified purchases. The unverified purchasers have rated this product an average of 4.0 while the verified purchasers have rated this product an average of 2.1. 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.

Unverified purchases may be the result of Kindle Unlimited readers, buyers who didn't pay full price, or reviewers who did not purchase the product at Amazon. Read more about our Unverified Purchases test.

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


13 of the 142 total reviews for this product admitted to receiving a free or discounted product in exchange for a review. Incentivized reviews have rated this product an average of 4.1 while reviews that were not incentivized rated this product an average of 2.8. 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.

The Take-Back Reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.0 while the reviewers who don't have any deleted reviews in their history have rated this product an average of 2.2. 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.

Fail Phrase Repetition

Warn Rating Trend

  • 13%
  • Created over 4 days

We counted 142 reviews for this product over the span of 667 days, an average of 0.2 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 3 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 4 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 19 reviews were created on just 4 days. Although any days with a larger number of reviews than expected is suspicious, the discrepancy in ratings from reviews created on these high volume days and reviews created on other days isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Warn Brand Repeats

Brand Repeaters


40 of the 142 reviewers have reviewed other products for this brand. While this is more Brand Repeaters than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Brand Repeaters and non-repeaters isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.
