Note: While Amazon claims 139 reviews, we counted 136 available on their site.

Fail Suspicious Reviewers

Take-Back Reviewers


22 of the 136 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. This is an excessively large percentage of Take-Back Reviewers which may indicate unnatural reviews.

Single-Day Reviewers


22 of the 136 reviewers have written multiple reviews but posted all of them on a single day. While this is more Single-Day Reviewers than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Single-Day Reviewers and all other reviewers isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Pass Rating Trend

  • Created over 1 day

We counted 136 reviews for this product over the span of 1,120 days, an average of 0.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 2 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 1 day exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 3 reviews were created on just 1 day. This is within an acceptable range and it does not appear to be significantly affecting the overall rating for this product.
