Fail Deleted Reviews
We discovered a total of 170 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 4.7. 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:
- 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.
- We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
- 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 Rating Trend
- Created over 17 days
We counted 3,250 reviews for this product over the span of 1,496 days, an average of 2.2 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 8 or fewer reviews on any given day.
However, we see the following 17 days exceeding this threshold:
Fail Phrase Repetition
Reviews that contain one of these phrases are NOT necessarily devalued; read more about how this test works here.
Common Phrases in Reviews:
Show MoreShow Less
49 of the 3,250 total reviews for this product use substantial repetitive phrases between them. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.7 while reviews without substantial repetitive phrases 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.
Fail Overlapping Review History
Reviewers of this product have ALSO reviewed the following products:
478 of the 3,250 reviewers have substantial overlapping product review history. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.7 while the reviewers who have a more unique product review history 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.
Warn Suspicious Reviewers
1,000 of the 3,250 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. While this is more Take-Back Reviewers than we'd expect to see, it does not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.
Warn Reviewer Participation
- From reviewers with an overrepresented participation
We see the following 2 participation groups with a statistically significant greater concentration than what we'd expect to see:
Pass Unverified Purchases
223 of the 3,250 total reviews for this product are unverified purchases. This is within an acceptable range and it does not appear to be significantly affecting the overall rating for this product.
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.
Pass Word Count Comparison
- Have an overrepresented word count
We didn't find any review word count groups that had a statistically significant greater concentration than what we'd expect to see in this category.

Pass Brand Repeats
308 of the 3,250 reviewers have reviewed other products for this brand. This is within an acceptable range and it does not appear to be significantly affecting the overall rating for this product.
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.
5 of the 3,250 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.
